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 have learnt from this content of this unit what qualities a good teacher should have like be kind, be patiant, be able to motivate students, as well as what makes a good learner. Furthemore, for good teachers it's extremly important to carry out each role what he/her needs during the class. Besides, the way of teaching kids and adults has to be different. The teacher has to find a particular approach to students based on their age.The teacher can use many different teaching aids to make his/her lessons more interesting and effective. Of course, different schools have different resources available to teachers. In classrooms and study centers can often be found: White/black board, visual aids such as real objects or photos, computeers, dictionaries, course books, worksheets and work cards etc. There are aslo many websites that a TEFL teacher can use as resources.
