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 very interesting and quite difficult, I am unsure of a few of the answers that I put down but I am taking a risk by submitting. I never understood how difficult it was for non-local speakers to engage in such activities due to pressure that they might get it wrong and such. This prompts me to be more open and create more speaking games for my future lessons to ensure student to student interaction.The second video was incredibly helpful in demonstrating several of the concepts I have been studying. I appreciated seeing the ESA model in action. I could also see how subtle changes, such as smiling, using students names and acting out words increased student participation and made a world of difference. I think the second video was the most helpful and I will implement a lesson similar to this in the future.
