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.


In this unit, the different types of materials for classroom use are covered such as worksheets, pictures, charts, audio recordings, newspapers, etc. There are two types: authentic, which is made without the sole purpose to be used as a classroom aid, and non-authentic, which is made with the sole purpose of being a classroom aid. We also learn about lesson planning and why we should do it, what should be in it, and how to use it.all I learned and understand about this lesson or unit is that,students need to be exposed to the language and have the chance to use it.students needs more exposure to language that there are learning as possible.and in this study,teachers should allow the students to give there opinion or wait until they finished speaking to avoid interrupting them.Bear in mind that correction should reflect the stage of the lesson.
