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.


I actually really enjoyed learning the phonetic alphabet and believe that although it's been a huge learning curve, it will help me in my career imemmsely. It will also help me in my day to day life reading and understanding words that I did not know how to pronounce. I have struggled most with this unit though, understanding when to stress, or more importantly how to teach stress of, when speaking. I hope to get better in time.I learnt that writing skill is more difficult skill comparing to speaking and it especially requires higher degree of accuracy. At different stage of teaching, different focus is placed in accuracy or fluency activities. For example, during activate stage, fluency will be more concerned about because students should be encouraged to be creative in using what they have learnt in class to communicate their idea to the rest of the class.
