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.


This lesson finished up the Business English certification by tying up loose ends and providing resources and information useful when searching for a job. It mentioned business etiquette and things to avoid so you are not being insensitive in your new country. It talked about finding a job and writing a CV. It finished by mentioning further exams a teacher can take, associations and organizations to join, and supplemental information.Studying that unit, I learnt about importance of speaking and writing skills. This chapter, contains information about accuracy and fluency activities. What I think is mostly helpful to me, is a part of encouraging students to speak, as it is not always for me to do during my classes. I like to put games into practice during my classes, this unit reminded me that there are many different and entertaining games that I haven't used yet.
