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 is about the productive skills of speaking and writing. Students may be hesitant to speak in class, so it's important to choose interesting topics, plan engaging lessons, encourage participation and not over-correct mistakes. The same is true for written work. Games are useful in the classroom for providing language practice, and many traditional games can be adapted for use in the EFL classroom.Effective teaching requires a varied mix of activities and methodologies. No one approach is correct; rather, the successful teacher draws from a variety of methods and tailors instruction to the specific needs of students. The preferred approach by this TEFL course is Engage, Study, Activate (ESA). Throughout each class, teachers should use only English and challenge/encourage students to use mostly English.
