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.


It is true that using a course book limits your creative nature, It becomes quite boring following a book ans students will become restless. Using the course books gives an insight into a lesson plan for that lesson and is useful when used in this way... Being creative not only inspires your students to think outside of the box but also shows your students your ability to adjust to thier needs and become flexible.This unit offers advice on dealing with problems endemic with teaching English as a foreign language. Suggestions include the use of warm-up activities, methods for dealing with students with different language levels, and strategies for dealing with students who are reluctant to participate. What I found most helpful in this unit is the brief discussion on dealing with the use of native language in the classroom.
