As Vietnam's capitol, Hanoi enjoys a reputation of being a relatively safe city and has approximately 5 million people.

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 is an introduction for what this course design will encompass. It is well laid out and instructions are clear of what to expect from this unit and also what the other units are and how they fit in to the overall picture. I also liked the list of acronyms as they can be confusion. However, in my view these acronyms should all be standardised for the whole world as this ensures consistency and avoids unnecessary confusion.Once again, tenses can be a difficult river to navigate. To help a student understand the differences in time can be daunting. However this unit utilized wording that I was familiar with from unit 4, and thus could remember and learn from. This unit followed the course own advice in teaching. Repeat and make me use what I have learned in the past. Past tenses are now much more easier for me to comprehend, and hopefully, explain.
