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 has been my favorite lesson to date! This lesson covered the basics of phonetics such as intonation, stress, phonetic symbols and their accompanying place of articulation and manner of articulation. Tips on how to teach each of these things within class were also included. The charts and pictures included in this lesson were particularly helpful in helpful me to visualize the process of speech.This unit was about usage, of course books and materials. There are two kinds of materials - authentic and created. I've learned about the differences between them, and how to craft my own materials. I've learned how to choose proper books, and authentic materials, what factors should I consider while analyzing them. Finally, I've learned about the advantages and disadvantages of using course books.
