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.


An interesting unit giving the different situations a teacher may find themselves in and covering a broad spectrum of learners. I often think that teaching children and young learners is a daunting prospect as I have only ever taught young adults. However, this unit inspires confidence where teaching young learners and children are concerned with good advice on the individual teachers approach.These concepts are hard even for native English speakers! As I was reading through the common mistakes, I realized that I have heard almost all of them when speaking to people who do not speak English as their first language. I also realized how often English speakers use incorrect grammar when they speak. Ha! Everything has a reason and a connection, and that was made clear in this lesson.
