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.


In this unit I have learnt about the various building blocks of a language and the four important parts when learning a new language: exposure, understanding the meaning, understanding of the construction and being able to practise. I like the vision of the grammar being the tree trunk and branches of a tree and that the vocabulary and functions are the leaves bringing beauty and variety to the tree.I have learned in this unit that classroom manangement be greatly observed by teacher to ensure that the students will learn effectively. Thus,classroom manangemant help the teacher to maintain the descipline in the classroom, to easily interact with students while teaching, and to monitor the students effortlessly. That it is very important to established a good rapport between teacher and students.
