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.


Unit 13 Teaching Pronunciation and Phonology covered the basics of the aforementioned fields in a very cursory way. This was a rather long unit that I feel could be cut into smaller units or shortened as I feel that this unit was given too much emphasis when others did not go into as much detail when they could have. Overall it is important to know this material but the presentation is a bit too technical for an introductory be quite honest i found the questions of this particular exam to be quite difficult. this is partly because some of the answers could have been either 'x' or 'y'so as to say that it was confusing to choose between two or more answers that all seem like they could be right. all in the beginning of the section was very interesting and enlightening until it was mixed with the present perfect which made the possibe answers confusing.
