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.


Perfect timing for this unit! I actually asked myself what could I possibly do for my first few lessons. I really appreciate the fact that this course covered that. I also found the fact that it was mentioned that it was perfectly okay to take your time on a lesson and that rushing through English lessons and materials could actually be harmful for the student's learning experience.In this unit I have learnt about evaluating and testing. The first section focused on is about evaluating students, here i learnt about the different ways to asses a students language level through tutorials, evaluation by students and also by undergoing tests. I have also learnt a lot about the different types of tests and about the testing and evaluation tools that a teacher can use.
