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 unit provided valuable information about the various assessment tests needed at each stage of teaching the syllabus. Giving some information on the limitations that could exist was also welcomed. The levels learners were separated into were interesting and helpful for deciding what material would best suit them. The test examples were also great in providing a sample for teachers.This unit was a bit difficult and requires extensive repetition for even the native speaker to have a full understanding of it. It also requires practice and for the instructor to be able to recall all the vowels, both monophthongs, diphthongs, and consonant scripts. It is rather vital for the instructor to fully memorize these symbols prior to attempting any insertion in the classroom.
