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.


This unit helped me reflect on my own teaching tactics. It provided me with guidance towards certain roles I had rarely taken up, e.g. as a facilitator, and I have learned that I can be helpful and available to the student, but to refrain from offering too much help right away. This unit had also given me an insight on my students' perspectives, and how to be more sensitive and caring towards each individual.Reading and listening is an integral part of learning English. In Japan, I find that their listening and reading skills are more advanced than their conversation skills. But nonetheless I still encourage them to listen to podcasts and practice their reading skills buy reading books and other materials. I think this lesson was short but very informative. I will try to apply the knowledge that I learned here.
