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 useful in pointing out variations to the standard class group that was addressed in most of the lessons. I now feel more prepared for facing a variety situations and class types. This will be of use to me as I consider different positions as an English teacher in the future. The more I know, the more willing I will be to apply to a greater variety of positions and, ultimately, the more opportunities I will have.This was still difficult because native speakers of English ingrain Grammar and take the speech for granted. I think that using specific grammar is difficult in teaching non native speakers English. By practicing and keeping up with new methodologies of teaching the instructor can and will help each student excel in English. The instructor must make sure that the approach to teaching grammar is done in a multi modal approach.
