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.


Part of this unit greatly reflected information learned in Unit 3. I appreciated taking the ESA structures that I had come to understand previously and apply them to certain areas of teaching. This unit helped me realize that teachers don't just need to find the ESA structure that suits their style, but that different ESA structures may be more suitable depending on what area is being taught.There are many forms of testing students, whether formally or informally. I remember how uncomfortable I was with test taking and I would like to create an atmosphere that allows students to build their daily use of English, as well as test-taking abilities. As a teacher, there are countless responsibilities that need to be stressed and evaluated when teaching a room full of curious students.
