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.


I learned that whatever the level of the class, and however I arrange the study phase of the lesson, the students need to be exposed to new language, understand it's meaning, understand how is constructed and able to practise and produce it. I also learned that an effective teacher will think about which structure is most appropriate to the class and to the language that will be introduced.Resources one uses, will determine the type of teacher one is. Of course cassette players and dvd's are no longer in use, at least in my country. I guess OHP is the most common aid used in classroom, apart for the white board, I would say is the most useful and practical tool, to both, get your students attention and present material that is more interactive than your daily lesson material.
