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 feel that it is very important to properly encourage students to speak. Many students are shy or do not have the proper confidence to fully participate in classes. I feel that if a teacher properly demonstrates how to for example pronounce certain words and practices drilling before the student works on their own that this would help with the students' participation. Accuracy first then fluency later.The unit presents various equipment and aids for teaching. They are presented with suggestions for proper use and showing their pros and cons. In addition, a huge number of online recourses are provided in different categories, much more than I was aware of. I learned about the different tools that might be available in schools, and especially all the available online resources was a revelation to me.
