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 covers evaluation and testing. It explains that teachers need to evaluate their students at different points in the year, from the beginning and onward. Placement and diagnostic tests allow the teacher to get a feel for what level each student is at prior to beginning the course. Progress tests tell the teacher whether the students are actually learning the material. Practice tests are used to prepare for general exams.This unit discussed the different kinds of people, or groups, that tend to make up the student body of an English as a Second Language class. ESL students tend to fall into the main categories of beginners, individual students, children/young learners, and business English students. Each type of English student has different needs. The needs are usually based on students' age, language level, purpose for studying English, etc.
