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 very interesting because of learning phasese of receptive skills of reading and listening. I learned that receptive skiils help us to achieve some particular goal and aim, and find what I can do to motivate my future students. I figured out that there are four basic skills in any language, such as receptive skills, speaking and writing, reading and listening and productive skills.Ways/methods of teaching can be vary accordingly to the type/group of people the teacher are going to deal with. A same method of teaching can't be used on different type/group people due to the needs and their ability of learning. Therefore as mention in this unit, the teacher needs to analyse and understand the students' need and also their ability of learning before planning the lesson plan.
