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 Unit 5 : Teaching Themes, I learned about adapting existing popular games into teaching aides. For example, using the Monopoly game, one can turn the property squares into questions, and instead of money, you actually use the house pieces if you get the question correct. In this unit, I also realized that I can use existing information from the students' respective companies to help them with their grammar and tenses!This unit is useful source of information regarding how to evaluate the group you will teach, what kind of tests we can conduct and what is their purpuse. Some problems that we can face teaching Business adults and what they expect from us. Teaching business english is different then other but it's interesting, since you have to teach special syllabulus they will need in the business. Very clear and good unit. Thank you.
