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 learned that two other productive skills (in addition to reading and listening) are speaking and writing. Also, as with reading and listening no one skill is more important than the other and all four of them should be included when learning a new language. The points noted in the previous unit are similar to the ones re-iterated in this unit (i.e. create enthusiasm by picking topics that are of interest to the students etc.).It is very interesting to see just how the attitude of the teacher really affects how the students take away from the lesson. The first video had the teacher act very rude and quick to jump to conclusions, whereas in the second video he was a lot more understanding and overall just more pleasant to be around. These two videos just helped to reinforce what behaviors I should use in the classroom and what behaviors to watch out for.
