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.


This unit describes several types of student evaluations (specifically, tests). The unit highlights the relevant differences among placement tests, diagnostic tests, progress tests, and practice tests. Finally, the unit provides a breakdown of several important and internationally recognized tests of English as a foreign language (which, the unit points out, are \"external exams\" for which practice tests should be used to prepare).Following up from receptive skills, learning about the productive skills was helpful so that I could gain a fuller idea of what all goes into the act of communication--reading, listening, speaking, and writing. I particularly enjoyed the creative writing lesson plan outline at the end, as I was a creative writing student myself, and hope to plan a few lessons on creative writing and the joys that come with that mode of communication.
