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 unit discusses various methods by which an English class could be taught. Through the Engage, Study and Activate approach, an English teacher could facilitate a smooth segue from arousing the students’ interest, to the elicitation of information, to communication among the students. The teacher is free to organize a Patchwork ESA lesson as necessary in order to allow for greater retention of the language concepts.This lesson has been quite interesting. Watching the first video gave me anxiety, for the teaching style was horrible. I found myself much more comfortable and at ease when watching the second video. The comparison between both videos was outstanding. This unit made perfect sense. I think it proved useful because it makes you empathize with the students and being able to relate to them makes me want to be a great instructor.
