How long does a TEFL course take?


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 convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

So in Unit 13, I learned about phonology and how to use phonics to help students with pronunciation and grammar. I learned the patterns of intonation: rise/fall, fall/rise. This unit also covered the different levels of intonation, which indicated the stress levels at which a person is speaking. Also learned about sound joining and how the native English speaker speaks naturally.This unit was a refresher from the previous units learned, that discussed the following: present, past, and future tenses. In this chapter, it is relating them to types of speech and how the students correlated them versus how I teach them. Which means, if they do not understand the basics then conversationally the students will become confused when speaking to others in English.
