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 discussed the productive skills, writing and speaking. Fluency and accuracy are both equally important, but are usually focused on separately. Accuracy should be worked on in the Study phase, while fluency should be worked on more in the Activate phase. Creating a comfortable atmosphere by using relevant prompts, games, and other activities is crucial in encouraging students to interact and get creative with the language.Since I teach Grade One, this unit was amazing and very beneficial to me as it taught me a lot about 6-7 years old students. I liked the explanation of theories at the beginning of the unit. The application of ESA on different groups of students age was very helpful. Moreover, learning about different positioning of a class as well as how the position of teacher was really good. The detailed information about skill was very useful.
