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 lesson covered two different styles of activities, accuracy and fluency activities. I have learned the difference of these two styles of activities by learning of their goals. Accuracy activities will be more interested in improving the students perfect way to speak a certain sentence, while fluency activities aim to help the student feel more comfortable about speaking, have fun with the language.Course book is going to be a teacher's guide in making created materials. The use of course book need not to be followed religiously. If a teacher feels that a certain topic is not interesting or of no use to the student he/she could skip it but do not skip a lot of lessons. If possible the teacher could replace the topic or add more for the student not to question why he/she had to buy the course book.
