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 was difficult because at the start of the material there was an emphasis placed of creating a planning lesson with flexibility and now we are expected to answer questions in a more rigid format seemingly according to some script. The questions and answers appear confusing to me. I'm really not sure I follow he general idea of the purpose of this series of questions for the unit.I enjoyed this unit a lot. It outlined a teacher's role in the classroom clearly, it described what categories the learners can fall into. It showed what the advantages and disadvantages of teaching adults are. Lastly, it showed what potential difficulties one may encounter teaching groups or individuals. And of course the refreshment of teaching receptive and productive skills was great.
