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.


The beginning of each new course is a crucial step to firstly establish rapport with the class but also to set the tone for the rest of the course. At some point I will come across students who are reluctant to talk and don´t want to participate in the class. The skills that an EFL teacher need to have to cope with students like this are many. Its important to have many options available.This unit discusses ways in which to monitor and evaluate a students progress and language level. One aspect mentioned in this unit is the use of evaluate by the students, something which I think as a new teacher will be extremely important for me. Also included is a useful example of a placement test and a brief description of some language exams which some students may be studying to take.
