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.


In this unit I learnt about trouble shooting common problem situations. It starts with how to conduct the first lesson and then moves onto what they call warmers. I also learnt about dealing with students at different levels and the problems you can have with large classes and what you can do to overcome these problems. Finally it talks about dealing with reluctant students and difficulties you have with learning texts.This unit covered receptive skills and suggested methods for teaching them. It explained the ways people read and listen, as well as the specialist skills used, such as scanning or skimming while reading or listening. For me personally, learning about pre-teaching vocabulary and the difference between authentic and non-authentic texts was very helpful, and the example of a patchwork ESA lesson is also a great reference.
