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.


These videos where helpful in showing the right way to conduct a lesson and the wrong way to do it, as well as the difference between the two. It helped show a real live classroom setting and the obstacles and opportunities that may arise during the lesson. It also helped provide a window into the correct order of conducting a lesson and helpful tips when engaging and teaching beginner levels.Another pretty straight forward unit. Most of the answers I knew based on common sense, and also because I have some experience in tutoring students and what type of exams they will be taking. The different types of tests will most likely be administered externally to my class, excluding a select few which will help students prepare them for any external tests or important tests in the future.
