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.


It is much more simple nowadays to study a foreign language as modern technologies allow practicing almost all the skills needed for improving one's knowledge. Using some of them would introduce a considerable positive change in the studying process. Different video/audio equipment, interactive whiteboards, overhead projectors and many else will both educate and entertain simultaneously.In this unit I learned the different methods on how to teach the students. This unit helped me by teaching me when to use the correct method on which level English students. It also showed me very interesting methods and activities for the students to help them understand English beter. In conclusion this unit answered most of my questions I had about how to work with different students.
