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.


Very comprehensive unit. Speech is a very complex thing to explain and articulate. I found the section on the phonetic alphabet very challenging but once you got the idea it was easier. I can understand why pronunciation can get lost in translation somehow. I think the best way is probably to incorporate it into lesson slots where it fits. Whole lessons may be a bit daunting to new learners of the language.An effective teacher considers the teaching of pronunciation an integral part of the course. For one thing, students are as concerned about it as they are with any other aspect of learning English. Pronunciation is probably the most neglected aspect of English language teaching. Confidence is often lacking in foreign teachers to teach it and English teachers sometimes lack the confidence to tackle the area.
