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 was easy. I consider myself an old-fashioned teacher, which means I prefer using direct interaction with kids, using less tools than usual. I actually wasn't feeling that comfortable yet with IWBs, and instead prefer using traditional simple white board in classroom. Usage of DVDs is usually an additional section that I offer to my students aside from class time, in order to improve their listening ability.This unit was great for understanding the differences between created and authentic materials and how they have different benefits in being used in English classes. Course books are quite comprehensive offering classroom books for students, workbooks for homework and books for teachers. A significant advantage of using course books is that they provide a syllabus which can be graded to a level suitable for students.
