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.


Unit was helpful. Watching how two different form of the lesson being taught is a good way to look at the difference between a good teacher and a okay teacher. Being able to speak slowly and clearly will always give the student a chance to follow you better. If you're speaking to quickly the student will get lost and lose interest. Learning each of the student names is important and introducing yourself is always helpful as well.Students think evaluation and test are stressful not knowing the teacher feels the same way because she/he needs to prepare then check the result. If the result is bad, not only them who will feel bad also the educator because low score means the students didn't absorb or understand the taught lessons. The different tests help the teacher a lot. It gives her/him idea on what to do and how to improve the teaching-learning process.
