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.


I liked how the lesson started off by stating the four things that students need to do with new language: be exposed to it, understand its meaning, understand how it's constructed and be able to practice and produce it. I also enjoyed learning how to apply the ESA methods to introduce new language. This unit broke down the ESA methods that are appropriate for introducing new language structures, grammar and vocabulary.It is very clear to me that I am accustomed to the rules (and exceptions) of the English language through exposure, not through understanding of the rules. In order to explain how English is structured, I am going to have to study the rules more thoroughly. I can speak correctly because I have been exposed to proper English, but in order to explain to others how to construct a sentence I will have to study the rules.
