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.

Sometimes teachers do not think upon these questions being guided by the school admnistration, just conducting the tests. So, the unit gives general understanding of processes which often take place \"outside\" the classroom but have a direct influence on the study.
