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.


Vocabulary is a big concern both to the English language learners and the English language tutors ,but the unit has tackled this problem which often find the tutors wanting in class because he or she is not able to proper introduce a new vocabulary which causes the students to be confuse hence failure in the task.I would say that the topic has been well handled and i am more educated on this topic than ever before.This unit gave me lots of cool ideas and helpful websites for me to use when I need inspiration. I really liked the sites with different games to play with children. Every idea I could see myself using and I also imagine most kids would love to play. The lesson plans that were put together for me to read at the end of this unit were also very helpful and I really liked the creativity that was put into them. Thanks.
