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.


In this unit I have learned about different approaches one can use when teaching students depending on their age requirements and purpose. It is an important unit because different groups will need different approach and methods to make sure that learning the English language is made as effective as possible. I found the explanation of different types of beginner students particularly useful because the word beginner can be confusing.This lesson provided an extreme amount of helpful material. It is always a plus to receive help on creating a useful, appropriate, and up to date CV/Resume. The resources on searching for a job as it relates to ones qualifications and region were also very helpful. It was nice to have access to the webpage containing information in regards to all regions (Asia, Latin America, Europe, etc.). For sure a very useful and informative unit.
