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.


Last unit! In this unit I learned the problems that I might face in the classroom and how to best handle the situation. It is not going to be easy, but this course has given me the guidance and knowledge that make me feel comfortable to continue the process of becoming a teacher abroad. I am excited for this journey and am so great that ITTT provided this extensive challenging and very informational course.This unit provided a wealth of strategies and activities to consider when teaching students of various ages. The ESA lesson plan format is very similar to what I used when teaching music for my five years of teaching. I call it the \"I do, we do, you do.\" Where I teach a skill or concept. I work on that concept with the students. Then students work in small groups in order to try to perfect their task.
