TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 1


Chantelle is taking a 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos with ITTT. This is the first of her video diary entries outlining her experience taking the course. Chantelle took the online course because it was better for her to study online than to commit to attending an onsite course. In this video she talks about the first unit of the course. Unit 1 deals with teachers and learners discussing what makes good teachers and learners as well as the types of roles teachers perform in class, motivation levels of different types of learners and the different language levels.

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 covers the different ways of evaluating students levels and progress.This can be done in the form of the normal placement test,progress test, diagnostic test and also practice tests to prepare students for external exams. It also has a great section which covers the general external examinations and also the different categories of Cambridge exams.Unit 3 is focused on the methodology,mistakes and feedbacks thus the various methods of teaching are very vital for both teachers and learners.In this unit I have come across many other classrooms gaems that will make studying English more interesting and fun.Again teachers have to evaluate and test their learners after treating a particular lesson or topic.
