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 final unit was about problems that may occure while teaching English. There were few recommendations on how to start a class in order to motivate students and make it interesting. Motivation to study is something that can be reached thru games, warm ups and so on. The other common problem if teaching to non English speakers is to encourage students to use as more English as possible and less of their native language.ESA methods are useful to introduce new language. Selection of new vocalbulary has to be prudent and thoughtful too, it can't just be a random combination of words. To me, what matters is not only what we teach, it's how we teach. One problem for me is that I often think methodologies should be perhaps more complex. It is really not. It is just good simple method designed to help students learn what I am hoping to teach.
