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 the importance and strategies for teaching vocabulary, grammar structures, and language functions. Previous lessons about the ESA method of teaching were included to show how example lessons might be taught. I feel like I now better understand the ESA model and I know what are the most important things to teach when it comes to vocab, grammar, and language functions.This unit focuses on teaching special group of students. Explains about the differences between teaching groups and individual students, young learners and adults, and monolingual and multilingual classes. It also provides tips and methodologies on teaching beginners and business English. It is important to find the needs of the students by doing a needs analysis and plan out the lessons.
