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 use of visual aids is very important in any classroom to be able to see what has been done and what will be done. Everyone should have availability of all visual aids to help them with their work and to introduce new material. The visual aid that works best is the one done with the students - interactive- and they are proud to see their work and they can go back to it and use it while doing other activities (oral or written).In this unit I learned about phonology, intonation, stress or lack thereof, the phonemic alphabet, articulation, and teaching techniques. I also learned techniques for teaching intonation with nonsense words, gesture, humming or singing, or by marking marks on the board. I found this lesson to be difficult especially with the phonemic symbols; however, I found the teaching technique to using tongue twisters to be extremely useful.
