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.


Before this unit I didn't realize there were criteria for picking vocabulary for a lesson. I now know that my choice of grammatical structures and vocabulary should compliment each other and also have usability in the student sphere. The more opportunity the student has to engage with the vocabulary the more likely they will be to retain the information presented to them in my lessons.Learning has changed so much in the U.S. recently with the quick evolution of tape-CD-DVD-Mp3 and U Tube. The teacher must be versed in a number of teaching/demonstration modalities in order to grab and hold the students' attention, make the learning interactive and fun, and instill confidence to speak English. Some really great resource links for just about anything related to TESL.
