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 summarizes most of the resources that teachers could find in classrooms, schools / study centers. Most of them are mentioned in the previous units but here is an explanation of each one. The unit emphasize more on their use, advantages and disadvantages and also clarifies what would be the real situation in most of the schools. A lot of online sources are listed with teaching ideas, dictionaries, materials, games, etc.This phase of the course gives a vivid scenario where a teacher is the key for starting a successful class, a teacher needs to attend any class with the right attitude. also a logical arrangement of the content can make lesson easily comprehensible, using of examples must be lesson related. and creating a good rapport with the students is important. finally, lessons must commence from the known and gradually move to the unknown.
