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 topic will certainly prove to be quite the challenge when teaching English to foreign students. When it comes to pronunciation, English can become quite difficult and confusing. To make it worst people from different countries with different dialects have difficulty understanding each other sometimes. This topic should definitely be given to more advanced students who already have a grasp of the language.Reflecting on this unit I would say that the information was garnered appropriately. I extwnd my knowledge in reading in depth about \"equiptment and teaching aids\". This unit also speaks about various teaching aid the can be use in the classrroom along the there advantage and disadvantage. The unit gives link to dictionary websites which gives prounciation of a specific word. I found this unit very effective.
