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.


There are certainly a lot of resources available to the teacher. As was mentioned, each school will offer different resources so a teacher will have to be adaptable. I wonder about the use of smart phones by the students to make videos outside of class. Only if ALL the students had a phone could you assign this activity. But makes sure the in fact do have a phone. They might be hesitant to admit they don't in front of their peers.This unit takes even more personalized attention to detail in order for each student to succeed. This includes everything from establishing rapport with the students to making sure they get along with their classmates, too. In order to teach, being able to manage a classroom comes first. It won't always be easy, but establishing boundaries and expectations for the class helps to set in place the flow of how the class will operate.
