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 lesson easier to understand because the topic is structural rather than specific. The lesson is very clear as are the learning outcomes for both teachers and students. The section, for me, was a great confidence builder as it gave me a clear 'peg's onto which attach specific knowledge. The opportunity to review ESA methodologies was also a useful and 'confirming' activity within the module.This unit was very helpful in terms of knowing how to plan for classes. I am very glad the unit mentioned lesson plans do not have to be rigid. I feel as though rigid lesson plans ave the potential to stifle creativity. It's also interesting t think of lesson planning for the perspective of the ESA format. It gives a great deal of lesson planning. I also found the teacher aim component was interesting.
