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.


Unit 1: This unit is concise and clear. The objective was met in that I now better understand the roles of both good teachers and good students. Especially adult students, as I have only worked with children thus far. It was also good to see that the unit had included the influences of culture on a student's willingness or ability to learn English, as my experience with young learners in a foreign country, had taught me this.This unit was all about managing the classroom in order to have an effective lesson. There are many ways to make sure that the behavior problems are prevented and/or dealt with properly without offending the student/taking time away from other students. I learned that the teacher has to be knowledgeable of the students in the classroom and their individual needs in order to make sure that no one is being left out or left behind.
