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.


I learn't how to cater receptive skills to the whole class by using a variety of topics to cover all interest groups in the class. The material given to assist teaching was very good, and will help me to write my own tasks in the future. I learn't that all skills of reading, listening, writing and speaking are equally important and emphasis should be given to try to include all in a lesson.In this unit I learned how to teach different groups of students. The special groups are the absolute beginner, the false beginner, the adult beginner, the young beginner and the beginner without Romanian alphabet. It is important to know how to structure classes for each group, so that the teacher knows how to assess the student's level and which skills and tasks to use to suit the student.
