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 feel from this unit I have learnt the basis of the age group this course will prepare you to teach. I have an understanding of the content that will be covered in the upcoming units and what to expect. I have also learnt some terminology in the teaching environment and can better understand and distinguish between them . I have a good idea of teaching hours in a typical teaching environment.This unit has effectively demonstrated how to teach difficult areas of the english language such as grammar and vocabulary. By using these methods, teachers can thus tackly difficult areas more effectively while still engaging students in areas of the language that may not be as exciting for some students. As well, this unit demonstrated various ways to engage the students into the lesson plan
