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.


Having watched the two videos, I feel better equipped in understanding the role and value of positive attitude on the part of the instructor. I believe the high level of student-student participation in the second lesson highly motivated the students to interact with the subject material. Additionally, the constructive use of pictures and examples highly encouraged student involvement.This unit was very thorough on giving an example of a teacher with a good lesson plan and one with a bad lesson plan. It was very helpful to watch a teacher with a good Straight Arrow ESA lesson plan as well. In the future when lesson planning, I will keep in mind the second lesson where the teacher engaged with the students and made the classroom feel like a safe learning environment.
