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.


Similar to the way the last two units helped me to conceptualize the past and present tenses, I learned in this unit how to conceptualize language as a topic from a teacher's perspective. Breaking down a system into smaller, more tangible units is not only helpful to learn but to teach as well. This unit also gave examples of how I can approach and organize my classroom beyond the physical set-up.Teaching language structures to students requires applying your skills, knowledge, and experience as a teacher to suit a particular situation. When we plan out our lessons it’s important to realize the need for variation in different types of activities. The concepts that form vocabulary words and the concepts that form the grammar structures would be benefitted by different ways of teaching.
