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 taught me about the different evaluation and testing methods when teaching English. I would agree with what was written in the unit about many teachers preferring to give shorter tests throughout the term to measure progress, as opposed to one big exam at the end of the term. I believe this will be the way that I approach evaluation and testing as it will allow me to pick up on any ares that students are having trouble with.In this lesson, it shows me how to choose books and materials. Basically, materials can be grouped into two kinds, namely authentic and created ones. It gives me some examples of the activities mentioned in those materials. It also introduces the advantages and disadvantages of using a course book as well as how can we best use course books. Teachers shouldn't base all the lesson plans on the materials chosen. It needs to be creative.
