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.

 

This unit was a bit confusing because it deals with pronunciation and how to teach it to students. As a native speaker would not find it very easy to identify the different intonation and stress patterns in a sentence, it is expected to be somewhat confusing for a non native to study the English phonology. Still, it's a way to get him to have better understanding of how to grab the accent correctly.In this unit, I have learned various teaching approaches for EFL students, for example, grammar-translation, audio, presentation, practice, and pronunciation, task-based learning, communicative language teaching, the silent way, suggestopaedia, the lexical approach. The most important one is the ESA theory, which consists of engage, study, and activate. All the methods and theories are very useful.
