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.


I found this unit to be quite informative regarding the role of the teacher and the role of the students.Also being made clear of the levels and the distinctions of students was something I had not really thought about before. I had seen course books with the different levels but had never questioned how the distinction for each level was made, so I found this interesting to read about.This unit was very informative in reference to all the different resources out there in the online word for ESL teaching. All the different online dictionaries, youtube video lessons and other related material will be extremely useful in my career. If there is one consistent theme that I have noticed in all these units is that an ESL teacher must be flexible in creating a lesson plan.
