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.


Problems happen in class. The problem I often have is the level difference. My classes have usually 3-5 people in class. The number of student is low, but filling the level gap is really hard. To match up the level, I also have to match up their motivation. After all, students are the ones studying, not teachers. Beginner classes, which I find it fun, are found frightening for young teachers. However everybody have to go though.This is the first unit to have completely new information to me. As someone who has studied foreign languages, I was able to reflect on my own learning experiences of language learning and correlate the techniques and stages of ESA to the methods my teachers used. This unit was particularly useful as it provides many different techniques and ideas to show how varied every class can, and must be, in order to keep students engaged.
