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.


Hi! The sequence of units on teaching- Methods of teaching and then Classroom management is really nice. Learning step by step in an order is helping me to become a better teacher. A teacher must know about behavioral problems and how to prevent them. I always wanted to study about the same. The content on it is pretty good. Also, the importance of gesture, eye contact and the voice is well-written.This unit gives a brief idea about basics of teaching English. The unit provides with observation of the qualities a good teacher and a good learner are supposed to posses; the roles a teacher can exploit during the lessons; and the main difficulties a teacher can face in his/her practice, such as issues related with age, motivation cultural background, life and learning experiences of students, etc.
