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.


I found it valuable to learn the different roles of a teacher and the characteristics of learners of different age groups and knowledge levels. It provided the opportunity to think about different scenarios and what role I would need to be in each. For example, with younger learners from ages 2-7, I might have to be in a controller and model role more than a participant role. There are multiple scenarios and situations to ponder.via this unit I have studied introduction in business english,by describing the unit,this come up with methodology,terminologies which define different aspects of english teaching such as:TEFL,TEOFL,ESP,EOP, FTBE,and son on.I have also learned about aims and objectives of business english. Prospect also has been studied via this unit. I really enjoy studing the course because every aspect with business english has been clarified.
