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, we have got to know various theories and methodologies of human behaviour. We have also touched upon ESA teaching approach and how it could be applied to young learners of English. The latter category of students is divided into two subcategories depending on their age. Teachers should bear in mind that the approaches used to teach young learners can be opposite to each other due to the maturation period.These two videos did an excellent job of showing the various roles a teacher can play in the classroom and how powerfully their approach and attitude can affect a class. It also provided a good visual example of how a class can go. What I learned from this section was the importance of a positive attitude, how to calmly and effectively encourage students and the ways that gestures and prompting can be effectively used.
