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.


After watching the videos a teacher can enhance the ability of teaching and to keep friendly and learning environment a teacher should never discourage and disappoint the students by his or her behavior and act. Keep calm and have patience. This is the most important quality that a teacher should have is patience and always show positive and calm attitude towards student to get their attention and interest in the lessonThis unit was extremely important as it taught me more about the productive skills. Teaching writing skill is a very difficult process as, like it was mentioned in the unit, teachers prefer to pay more attention to speaking in the class and relegate writing to homework. I grasped the valuable knowledge about creative writing activities as well as the benefit of incorporating creative communication games in the lessons.
