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.


The lesson plan for teaching furniture is a good in its elegance and simplicity. A lot of the EFL classes I've taught have been bogged down by trying to cram in as much as possible, but I like the idea of taking one concept and organically breaking it down in a way that students will have fun with the language target, and will end with a personalized touch that they can take home with them.From this unit I have come to understand the various methods of testing and evaluating students! These are some of the best ways to classify students (placement test), monitor their progress throughout the course (progress test), highlight their strengths and weaknesses (diagnostic test) and prepare them for external examinations should they continue to develop their English language skills!
