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.


As an undergrad student going for a degree in teaching English as a second language, my eyes have been opened to the different levels of learners and the way we should identify them. Effectively, we try our best to systematically organize our learners so that we can address their needs appropriately. In that, we must care very much about the needs of our students and pay close attention to each one.This Unit have shown me, in very clear and interesting way, the differences between techniques for vocabulary teaching, techniques for presenting and practicing language structures and techniques for teaching language functions. Concise and straight forward examples of typical ESA lessons were extremely helpful and I think this unit will be something I am going to go back to in my future endeavours.
