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 covered the productive skills of speaking and writing. As an older person my experience of language learning was devoted to writing. This was the way language was taught in schools in the fifties and sixties. I can see the problems associated with too much writing and very little speaking and so I have benefited greatly from the information in this unit. The unit gives a balanced approach to both these skills.This unit is about evaluations and examinations; the types of examinations and the importance of evaluation. Evaluation and testing is a great method to see the students' level of english, where they require assistance the most and also the progress of their learning experience. It greatly benefits both the teacher and the students. However, there are some teachers who don't believe that formal testing is a good method.
