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.


This unit explained different types of examinations and assessments, as well as what each type is used for and when they should be conducted in terms of course timeline. It began with a basic overview of different types of tests and continued with a more detailed breakdown of placement tests. This unit also showed examples of placement tests, and finally also covered general external examinations.Im this part I learned some useful tips about lesson plan.As we all known, the lesson plan is the most important thig for leading a great lesson. It is really a aid to the lesson itself, it can also be a good working document and it is a reocrd for our class. The most important thig is recording our class will help us if we are ill and it is convinient for the other teachers to cover our classes.
