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 discussed the various attributes of being a teacher along with some information about being a student. The section about attributes was particularly interesting. From it, I learned that it is important as a teacher to think about different strategies for providing the information to keep it both interesting to the student and memorable. Adjusting the information to be accessible to multiple learning styles is essential.This unit went over the types of resources that should be provided to students when teaching them. It focused on authentic and created materials at the beginning, which can be used at the teacher's discretion in order to supplement for course textbooks. This is needed in the classroom in order to vary the lessons in an interesting way, focus lessons on what is needed by the students, and boost the confidence and moral of students.
