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 was particularly useful in giving strategies for teaching reading and listening skills. Since I already have firm grasp of grammar and how to explain it, the areas of reading and listening were where my greatest concern about being an effective teacher lay. This unit bolstered my confidence since the advice turned out to be mostly common sense and I was able to link it back to my own experience with foreign language classes.I learned the characteristics that make a good teacher, It is important to know that every student come from a wide variety of background, such as cultural, the exposure and experience with the language and so forth. Age will also have a major influence on the student, in terms of motivation, the attention paid in class, the desire to learn and the will to take risks, and that is why it is crucial to know which roles are to be played.
