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 section, I learned about the different ways in which students will come into the classroom and what problems they might have. Also, if the students know each other or not is very important because that will show the teacher how they should structure the first lesson. It is imperative for the students and teacher to build a good rapport early on in the course so that learning can run as smooth as possible.This unit gives educators practical and proven strategies for organizing and managing their class. It presents very powerful strategies and methods that help teachers prevent problems, intervene when problems arise, and maintain a controlled classroom throughout the lesson. The strategies also help teachers to focus and maintain students' attention, maximize instructional time, and increase student participation.
