Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This has been a good overview of the reasoning and uses of tests in order to gauge the learning ability of competency of students and their skill level. Tests are a necessary tool in order to measure the abilities of the students as well as a challenge to motivate them to overcome an obstacle. Thus its important to utilize this tool in order to give the students a goal an test their capabilities.This unit contains the information, which are the classifications, characteristics, teaching ideas, classroom management, and some reminders for the five types of special classes: beginners, individuals, young learners, mono and multilingual, and business English. I feel that this unit is one of the most important topics because it gives me ideas how to deal with the different groups of students.
