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.


Nothing in this lesson was surprising or new to me, but labeling the different ways one can read was thought-provoking because I do all of them with my French students but have never considered what I am doing. I definitely feel that it is the teacher’s job to show the class that there are many ways to read or listen based on the assigned activity, so having a convenient list makes this easier.Unit 7 was about teaching a new language’s vocabulary, grammatical structures and language function. The unit showed us we can introduce it and ideas for lesson plans. I appreciate how the unit gave us clear and detailed examples of different kinds of lessons for teaching a new concept of language. This helps me to write lesson plans that will be more interactive and engaging for my students.
