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 this last unit of the course I looked over at the teaching special groups such as for Beginners, which are classified as absolute, false, adult and young. In order to give a successful teaching, you always need to be simple. Try to use use many motions to explain rather than just saying and play lots of games. It is important not to use their first language if you can speak it also between the students.This unit to me was all about both sides of the story. The teacher and the learner. The teacher needs to know both what the teacher is doing, and how his/her effect is impacting the students in addition to how the students interact with and depend on the teacher. It also went over different teaching styles and how you would change the style of teaching based on age, cultural background, and skill level.
