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 was a bit confusing, I think as teachers we can not fully focus on each stage that is presented in the classroom, where as the method are all due to change according to students level and class size. I find engaging with student in the beginning of class is a great way to create Teacher- students relationship. but I also find student -student relationship to be also first-hand.This unit is also very important in order to give a clear picture of receptive skills-listening and reading. This unit helps the reader that how to conduct these activities in your class by keeping in mind the importance of listening and reading. This unit emphasize equally the importance of both these receptive skills in order to make your students motivated for learning a new language.
