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 looks at the theory,methods and some of the practical ways to use to effectively teach and engage students in the class. The ESA structure ,boomerang ,and patchwork makes the the learning fun and enjoyable and helps students a lot. I like the boomerang structure , you engage the students activate them and find out areas to improve and again teach them.While going through this lesson, I recognised things that I was doing wrong in the classroom and was not even aware of. For example, I found that I always gravitate more to the more diligent students who exhibit a clear interest and desire to learn. Also, I hadn't considered that that playing around with the different grouping options could actual be beneficial.
