Applicants will be contacted by email and, for potential candidates, Skype interviews will be arranged. Start date will be determined at the time of hire.

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 discusses the productive skills needed to learn a new language. The productive skills are speaking and writing. Speaking is being able to verbally produce words in an order that appropriately communicates a message with proper pronunciation and clarity. Writing is being able to produce a message in written form that is clear and understandable with proper punctuation and proper spelling.Reading and listening are key to learning. The more you prepare your class in advance for troublesome situations the better. I look forward to creating my own worksheets and discovering the interests of my students over time. I love the fact that my students will change and that I will get a taste of all personalities big and small. Every chapter makes me more excited for this new opportunity.
