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.


From Unit 5 I learned about the broad concept of classroom management, which includes such factors as classroom arrangement, grouping students, giving instructions or estabilishing rapport. The next thing I learned was how to use eye contact, body language, and voice modulation to achieve the desired effects. Most important things that I learned was how to reduce teacher talk time and how to deal with bad behavior among students.I enjoyed this unit as I have had many of these situations that have had to come into consideration when working with students previously. If students do not feel or build a rapport with you they are less likely to try new activities, experiment with the language and ask questions. The setting up of the classroom environment is something that I believe very strongly in as if it is done well it can prevent any issues from arising.
