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.


Coming to a full circle with productive skills this lesson gave a lot of interesting and useful information about the importance of teaching and learning writing and speaking. The writing part gave an in depth explanation why it might be a challenge while the speaking part gave points on what to concentrate on as a teacher when it comes to activities. I have found this lesson amusing, probably one of the most entertaining ones.Watching these videos really illustrates how a teachers attitude can determine the success of a class. He was so rude and unkind in the first lesson and the students of course didn't want to try. The second lesson was so much better and it seemed much easier to teach. I was shocked by how much a teachers behaviour can cause a lesson to be successful or unsuccessful. These are things I will be keeping in mind when I am teaching.
