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.


Evaluating is how you can show the students how they are progressing throughout the course. It is fundamental to have in mind though, the many forms you can evaluate. Probably the best evaluation system comes from daily observation and constant feedback, however, tests can provide the student a grounded and more touchable way to have the feedback, also growing the students' confidence.This unit provides an overview of the different requirements and dynamics of teaching English language to special groups, such as beginners, young learners/children, business people, and one-to-one classes. I found very useful to have a general idea of the dynamics involved in the teaching of each special group because it may help me define my teaching preferences (so far I have none).
