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.


taking on from the previous unit, we examined the productive sets of skills we want to improve in the learners. speaking and writing. we again looked at the reasons of why people use those sets of skills in life and from that we have extracted the methods we can use to encourage our student's motivation. we then looked at the different types of activities and the sets of skills they are best suited for.This unit focused on teaching receptive skills, mainly reading and listening. I found this unit very straightforward and easy to understand. I think it's important to note that selecting good texts and appropriate texts takes time and practice and each set of students is different. This unit emphasized that point and gave some good examples of how to incorporate reading and listening in a normal lesson.
