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 talked about the use of course material in lessons. I have learned that though syllabus provides a standardize or international measure to follow in teaching students, they should not be followed to the last letter. The could only be used as guiding principle, however students' needs take the overall priority. Syllabus could therefore be omitted, replaced,modified or adapted to suit the student's need.This unit teaches how to manage a class. Aspects like eye contact, gesture and voice are very necessary when teaching. The unit also teaches about grouping students; this includes the conditions under which students should be grouped in a particular way, the benefits and the disadvantages grouping in that way. I also learned about the teacher; his/her positioning, rapport establishing and maintaining discipline.
