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 unit was focused on troubleshooting; what teachers should do in case of problems in the class. The unit began with an explanation on first lessons and how they should be conducted, grouping students and building rapport, and warmers. It then finished with tips on how to properly deal with large classes, use of students' native language, reluctant students, and trouble with listening exercises.This unit deals with evaluating and testing the students language skills. The three ways to assess students are: 1- Tutorials. 2- Evaluation by the students. 3- Tests. A variety of test were explained that can be used before, during and at the end of the Englisg Language Course, such as, placement test, progress test, practice test and diagnostic test. The samples were all very helping.
