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.


Classroom management is not very easy for most teachers but with the right knowledge on how to do it then it is definitely very easy.Having a great rapport with students contributes largely to classroom management because there is love and lots of respect from the students.I have learned that being less dominating in my class is very good because it makes the students feel comfortable and work much more and better.This unit was about pronunciation and had more information for teachers than it did on how to teach it to students. This indicates that this part of English is more technical and that teaching it to students is perhaps more rigid as each sound can only be made in a more unique way. In contrast, all the teachable content from previous units were not as rigid as parts of the sentences could be used in different ways.
