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.


A good overall explanation of how to troubleshoot situations that may arise such as dealing with reluctant students, how to deal with classes with stronger and weaker students, how to deal with first lessons and how to warm up the students before actually getting on with the class. Enjoyed the unit and the whole course and it has made me mre confident in my ability to teach English. Thanks!!Learning and devising new ways to teach the rules of grammar and make them interesting and more relevant to students, are processes that ESL teachers must continually seek, irrespective of their level of experience. This 6th unit of the course, like the 3rd, provides a great source for teachers to brush up on their existing knowledge of grammar rules and fortify their techniques of teaching it.
