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 is an introduction to the basic knowledge of this course. It includes outline and explanation of terminology. I found the discussion the various types of employment prospects extremely interesting. My preference would be to teach in a in house situation or one on one setting. I would not chose the language school option as my first choice, but I would remain open to all employment possibilities.One should supplement the class coursebook with authentic materials, like magazine articles, and content that the teacher creates. This helps to prevent tedium for both students and the teacher. It also allows the teacher to add content that's more pertinent to the class and local culture. Creating competition oriented class activities also can give the students extra motivation to engage with the content.
