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 a teacher's career, he/she will have to deal with various equipment and teaching aids. Each one of them have a proper function and a moment to use them. There are a lot of advantage to use teaching material as it will enhance and support our lesson to give them more flexibility and variation. Most schools will have different types of equipment, and it is up to us to make the best use of it.There are several common problem situations that may arise while teaching, like having reluctant students or having a large class. It will be helpful to start off the first class by establishing rapport between the students and the teacher instead of drilling from the course book. Similarly, each class should start with a warmer activity that will stimulate the students for the planned lesson.
