This video covers the differences teachers encounter when teaching monolingual and multilingual classes. Monolingual students all have the same native language. Multilingual students have different first languages. Watch this video to find out how to deal with these types of classes as a teacher.

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.

This unit mentioned the ways of how to develop a syllabus and the types of exmaninations or tests that should be given to students.Also, it included the types of limiting factors of designing a syllabus like the employer and the resources.It also included what type of testing the language is there such as testing the proficiency, progress, or aptitude.The unit covers conditionals and reported speech. And that is pretty difficult stuff! For me it's something I trust my many years with English as working language has taught me. It seems that the more units I complete the more I understand the difficulties non-Europeans must face when learning English as a second language. It is pretty heavy stuff!
