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 started with an overview of EFL methodologies. Most of the unit focused on how to structure ESA (engage, study, activate) based lessons and what activities can be used in each stage. Structure and activities will depend on you as a teacher and your students, most notably their language level. The unit ends with advise on how, what & when to correct mistakes/errors made during the three stages.This lesson seems to further help with earlier lessons on how to teach a class. This lesson helps with different ways to teach, as well as some example activities, and it tells the difference between grammar and vocabulary. It also describes how students tend to have a vocabulary of words they understand but rarely use in conversation, as well as a vocabulary of words that they both understand and use.
