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.


The second lesson looks more successful because from the very beginning the teacher established a rapport with his students by asking their names, was friendly, encouraged them for the right answers. He used a Straight Arrow ESA lesson plan, so he engaged the students into class activity then studied a new material, practiced this material and only after that he gave them a creative task to make up a story about an unexisting animal.I felt that future tense was harder to understand than the other tenses we have learnt in the course, however, my skills and use of the english will grow now that I have completed this unit. I will have to teach this english to students and this course is giving me the necessary capabilities to do so, through the content and how well the course has been put together, my confidence towards becoming a teacher is growing with each unit.
