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 was helpful in describing the importance of productive skills, and methods for teaching these skills. I thought the point that writing is often neglected in language lessons was an interesting one. I had never considered it before, but it is true that much emphasis is placed upon speaking in most language classes, and far less upon writing. I hope to keep this in mind in my own classes, and focus more upon writing.Engage: Teacher writes a simple recipe on the board. Ask the class if they know what the recipe is for. Have a photograph of the finished dish. Ask students if they can cook? Study: Study vocabulary use for animals and animals when they are food. Prepare a matching exercise. Activate: Have students work in pairs to write their own recipes. They can then introduce their recipes to the class explaining how to prepare the dish.
