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 10 compares 2 lessons, and points out how to improve on our teaching methods, and how to use the methods the we studied in previous units. This unit highlights well the differences and allows us to have a more critical point of view on how to build a good environment in the classroom. I can see much better the effectiveness of the methods learnt before and how to put them into practice.I can comfortably distinguish between authentic and created materials and know where each of these can be used effectively in the classroom. I can now analyze a course book and use it to the students advantage. I have learned about different styles like the Boomerang style. I have learned that there are different type of authentic materials and there are different types of created materials.
