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.


Choosing when and what kind of materials to use can be a challenging decision. This offers a balanced approach when it comes to deciding if to use authentic materials or text books. Like it's emphasized in this unit there advantages and disadvantages to using authentic materials, created materials and textbooks. the information in this unit helps teachers make the right decision when selecting materials that they will use in class.Eliciting is really important for teaching. That's the way tearcher should always follow when they teach students. I've learnt more about ESA, engage, study and activate. And different level students should use diferenct ESA method to teach. We need to encourage to use what we learned today and practice the previous knowledge in past classes. Teacher should also have a clear clue of topics and methods that how to correct students.
