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.


There are so many factors to consider when planning for good classroom management such as the chemistry of the students, the physical layout of the classroom, the teacher's physical presence in the room, volume of voice, etc. I would hope to use the classroom to it's greatest learning potential by creating a space and rapport that is encouraging, welcoming, and exciting for the students!My whole opinion about this course can be expressed in three words: I want more. Now when I see such a clear structured course with a lot of practical exercises, examples of activities and resources I think I would go through further detailed learning. I feel that I have found my own pace and I am now 100% sure that I want to work as EFL teacher. Looking forward to make final assignment!
