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.

 

Unit 6 is a change of pace. It is made up of two videos; the first depicts a rude and dismissive teacher who scolds and belittles his students while making bad use of time by writing on the white board too much. The second video, however, features the same teacher and the same students but now the teacher is friendly and teaches by interacting with the students. This leads to more efficient and enthusiastic learning from the students.Pronunciation and Phonology is always a fascinating thing to look at, and that applies to this unit too. It started with analysis of where stress is put on certain words or syllables and described how stress and tone can impact the meaning of a sentence. Then this unit dove into the physical mechanics of pronunciation. The IPA is a cool thing to use and the similarities and precise differences between speech sounds are fun to look at.
