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 about teaching pronunciation and phonology. I've learned about key terms and concepts in phonology and phonetics. Pronunciation is one of the most difficult areas of English language, and it is important to know how to teach it. That is why it was very useful to know the techniques used to teach it. I have also learned about phonemic alphabet and how to read phonemic symbols.Good Morning. I particularly enjoyed this unit. With a background in behavioral psychology. I have always subscribed to the Cognitive Behavioral approach to learning. It's refreshing to see different approached to this modality. The ESA \"Straight Arrow\" along with the Boomerang style of challenging the student. This unit has showed me to be more creative in the classroom. Thank You John
