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.


Unit 14 looks at important supporting materials for ESL teaching such as course books. The unit looks at the differences between authentic (Materials not specifically created for teaching) and created materials (created specifically to teach) and how each may be of benefit or a disadvantage to the student. The unit also provides several examples of materials that are useful teaching aids.I found this unit fascinating, as it forced me to consider all the uses of technology as how we as a modern society are forced to keep update with the uses of technology in the classrooms too. Such as how the cassette player and video player no longer play much of a part in the school classrooms anymore. Technology is a great way of keeping the class up to date and interested in a lesson.
