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 comparison between the two lessons clearly shows how a teacher can encourage their students to engage and excel verses how a teacher who has the wrong approach and attitude can create self doubt and lack of confidence in their students. Having the right attitude and approach gives all students confidence and encourages them to carry on learning how to speak english in a secure environment.I learned about what kind of equipment I can find in a classroom and how teaching aids could make the lessons more interesting and entertaining for the students. I learned that the way we use the board and how the information is distributed in it, it's very important. Also I learned that we must always have a backup plan if we are going to use an electronic device like projectors or computers.
