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.


The first question of the test bothers me because clearly in the unit it mentions FOUR basic skills in teaching receptive skills and yet the first question of the test asks for two skills which confuses me. Yes, as mentioned in the introduction of the unit, it is very short unit but I did learn quite a bit on each example tasks and how each component is important for a lesson plan such as tasks, topics and creating interests.From this unit I learnt different ways of evaluating students level and progress. There are a numbers of ways to access a students language level. Tutorials , Evaluation by the students, tests. There are different type of tests like placement, progress, diagnostic, practice test. In the last I learnt business related English examination and academic qualification that are necessary to gain entry into universities or colleges.
