As well as a team of Russian teachers, we have 5 full-time EFL teachers, from USA, England and Canada.

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 sections was more of a refresher course than anything else, as I had learnt this at school. It is always good to refresh our memories on grammar, pronunciation and making sure we are accurate in our speech especially when teaching others. The parts of speech unit was very precise and thorough it allowed me to make sure I'm competent enough in this area as sometimes it can be very confusing.This first unit was an introduction to the specialized course. As an ESP teacher, the teaching has 'some academic or vocational purpose' and there are some specialize words that will be needed in the lesson plans. In order to teach a particular business field, a teacher doesn’t have to know anything specific. Although it is useful to have a working knowledge of general business terminology.
