Escuela Bella Vista was founded as a private school in 1948 to provide a North American educational program for students in grades 1-9. In 1972, grades 10-12 were added to the school's program and in 2003 both the I.B.Program and a new pre-kindergarten program were added.At the present time Escuela Bella Vista is an international school; twenty countries are represented within the student body. The school's campus consists of forty classrooms, two gymnasiums, library, cafeteria, science and computer laboratories, office complex, music room, and other rooms. A new climate-controlled 300+ seat auditorium was completed in May 2005.

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 was very useful me to see how a few real lessons would be. It gives me comfort knowing that all teachers must have started with planning their lessons and now I have just learnt many ways of doing that. I also have comfort in knowing that some teachers don't have to plan their lessons as much when they get more experience. I have planned lessons before but now I think I can do it with a lot more confidence.I am relatively good at grammar and actually enjoy it, so I don't really feel that this section benefitted me. I guess it was a good reminder of some of the rules, but I don't feel that for me, the reminder was necessary. There are plenty of grammar rules left for me to learn, but I have been going over the ones in this unit since the fourth grade. (hopefully I didn't make any stupid mistakes after saying that!)
