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 allowed me to understand the phonetic baseline for many of the materials that I will be teaching to students. I will be using the lesson suggestions provided to help students understand the underlying structures that will help their speech and reading patterns become more natural. The phonetic table is also a useful tool for understanding the language myself, though I will likely not use it in the classroom.Unit 3 goes trough theories, methods and techniques required for teaching English. The EFL methodologies and approaches decided must take in consideration of the culture of students and teachers personalities. The introduced of Engage, Study and Activate (ESA) elements allows all the above to be applied and gives the teacher a great flexibility in the classroom. Also, plenty of good examples were given in the context.
