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.


Through this unit on lesson planning I learned the importance of preparing for the class in advance in order to carry out the study plan effectively. The reasons why we should create a study plan, how to write it and what should be included in it as well as a sample lesson plan showing a straight arrow ESA form were all very crucial information to learning how to create a lesson plan.This lesson has facilitated my understanding of the target group, aims, and objectives of the course. Additionally, it introduced me to the general terminology and acronyms associated with teaching Business English. Finally, the lesson broadened my understanding of ESP: Teaching of English for Specific Purposes, my prospects, and various ahead for me as a teacher of Business English.
