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 went over the specifics of lesson planning. When planning a lesson you should be conscious of many things, for example student level, objectives for yourself and your students, what teacher aids you might need to use and how much time each phase will cover. It's a balancing act of keeping students engaged, progressing their language comprehension and keeping the class moving.This chapter is helpful in that it shows you all of the aids that a teacher has at their disposal, and what the aids work most efficiently at doing. The interactive whiteboard sounds extremely interesting and I would love to get the opportunity to be able to use one at it's full capacity. If that isn't available, there are still many ways in which I can use aids to assist in my lesson.
