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.


I found the information about external examinations in this unit very interesting. I had never looked in to what exams you could take in English that were internationally recognized. It is interesting how some are focused specifically on business language and it makes me wonder if people who study for that particular test have a different time when communicating with people who are not in the business/corporate community.It is extremely useful to understand a variety of obstacles that we as teachers may encounter throughout our work. Specifically, I think it is very important to gauge what lesson plan options function differently and/or better depending on the size and type of class you are teaching. Warm-up games and icebreakers seem to be a very important jumping-off point for establishing a comfortable environment within the classroom.
