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 presents very useful ways and structures of teaching Vocabulary, Grammar and Functions - 'three Wales of English language', it is very important to understand what should be paid special attention to and what kind of information is not important for students to learn right away, so I found it very logical and useful the way tasks are prioritised. I also find ESA approach very efficient and convent to use.I liked how this unit ends the study of grammar and stresses that to have a complete study of grammar, it would take a 4 year study. I think it is important to remember that this course is not an undergraduate degree and does not offer any undergraduate degree and one would need a full course in the field. However, the course has all the information necessary for the future teacher to feel prepared for their class.
