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.


Upon reflection this unit has been realy helpfull , I found the past three units difficult to understand , but on doing this unit and having to go back and incoporate what ive learnt in pass units I can see how it all comes together to make more sense out of what ive been studing and how to apply that to future classes,ive enjoyed this unit tremendously and look forward to the next unit 8This unit provided some good tips and examples of various materials that can be used during the lesson. It prompted me to do a search on the internet to find my own materials and to see how I could incorporate them into a lesson that I was teaching. There are lots of different types of materials and the challenge is finding the types that suit both the students and the teacher the best.
