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.


A tricky module as it contained a lot of ideas that although very commonly used in everyday parlance, are easily taken for granted, so to bring the rules to the forefront and categorise them at times presented a challenge. The subject matter although it required a bit of effort to get used to was an interesting and necessary one, however, because of how critical it is to the way that we talk and speak everyday in the English language.Lesson planning is incredibly important in teaching so that a teacher does not walk in unprepared. While improvising is a strength in some cases, it should not be how a teacher runs every class since there are mandatory requirements for a student's learning. In order to meet these benchmarks, certain subjects have to be covered in a certain order, otherwise there will be chaos and confusion with the students being the ones who suffer.
