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 lesson provided me with a good list of various resources that I can incorporate into my classroom, but I will say that since my class room will be all online, I won't be able to use many of the tools listed here. I definitely will be referring to this lesson for resources that will help with lesson planning, but overall this lesson will not be very helpful in my classroom for the next year.the unit deals with various approaches to teaching, analyzing each and highlighting the pecularities. a very informative description is given to ESA elements, what should be included in each and how a teacher should act while performing such methodology. i couldn`t not like the given examples of games and other offered activities, and personally find it very useful for my future English lessons.
