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 11 is about teaching receptive skills. We read and learned about the necessary abilities to either read or listen: recognizing and understanding words and grasp their overall meaning from our own previous knowledge. The most interesting part I think is the one that shows the problems teachers might come across and how to solve them beforehand by choosing the right classroom activities.This unit was very helpful in helping teachers teach the receptive skills. The information given on the different specialist skills and problems with listening and reading can be used by teachers when teaching students. It also is good for strategies in teaching students receptive skills like in choosing interesting and level-appropriate texts and teaching difficult vocabulary ahead of time.
