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 has also been useful like the previous once although it was small but informative. I would also like to say here that this course has been very helpful for me in order to learn the methodology of how to organise lessons and classes. pre teaching vocabulary is a good idea before playing the audio. I also learnt in this unit how to keep the stronger and weaker students equally busy and interested in the lesson.The 14th Unit examined whether to use or not a coursebook and different materials and how these materials could assist during the lesson. It is possibly to use two kinds of materials -authentic and creative.The practical ideas of creative ideas usage were exposed. Also the Unit showed advantages and disadvantages and the best use of course books. After completion the Unit I will implement the given ideas in the class.
