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.


i will use this unit as part of specific teaching with my students in developing their abilities with the language. it can also be made fun which is a good reminder not to bury students with mass amounts of information with out making it fun which will help them remember better. for myself understanding the formulation of speech and how it is produced will help me also to structure a lesson for the students benefit.Unit 4 discusses about the different kinds of materials that a teacher can use in teaching Business English, how he or she can make them and change them according to the student’s needs/skills, and how to put them to use. This unit also talks about the significance of having a lesson plan and gives a sample to show on how to make one. Different resources were also discussed in this unit and how to acquire them.
