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.


First,the unit covers different and interesting teaching methods which are really helpful to use for teachers.Second,it mentions about engage,study and activate.It explains what teachers can do on each stage and also offers a variety of ideas or games both activate stage and engage stage.Then,it expresses different kinds of EAS lessons such as Boomerang ESA lesson,Straight Arrow ESA lesson or Patchwork ESA lesson.This unit was very useful as I learned all about equipment and teaching aids. I learned about the basic principles of board work, how to use interactive whiteboards, the advantages and disadvantages of using an over head projector,the advantages of visual aids, worksheets and work cards, the cassette recorder,CD player,Videos and DVDs, video cameras , photocopiers, computers, resource books, dictionaries and more.
