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.


When I have learned from this unit have a different ways of evaluating student’s levels and progress as well as some of the common external exams that I may need to prepare my students for. I felt in this unit I learned what means of the tutorials and how to evaluation my students and then gave them to the test that have a lots of the different tests that I know how to apply to my students from this unit.This unit was great I enjoyed it there was a lot to learn but all very interesting and extremely useful when planning and painting a classroom. I really do see how planning lessons is very important and extremely useful to use as a guide during class. So much can happen during the lesson you are not aware of or expecting, although I feel this really does set you up with a bunch of useful tools on your teachers belt.
