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 teaches about Classroom management and gives guidelines and techniques for effective classroom management to attain a relaxed, friendly and disciplined study environment. It points out some features like: eye contact, grouping students, sitting arrangements, giving instructions, teacher and students talking time etc. i find the the lesson so enriching and relevant to my teaching career.This was the unit I have been waiting for. I have realized so many times during a lesson that I know how a sentence is constructed but I have no idea how to explain it in words or what the exact rule is for it. This was also a very good reviewing unit for what I have studied in school. I definitely have a better understanding when it comes to grammar and how to make sense of it by using the rules.
