In this TESOL review video, graduate Amy from South Africa tells us how she took two online courses with ITTT; the 120-hour course with videos and tutor support and the course in teaching English to young learners. After completing the courses Amy accepted an English teaching position in Korea.
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 was about productive skills - speaking and writing. Learning productive skills is very important, because they are used to communicate, and this is what every student should be able to do. Learners can produce language using these skills. I've learned how ESA lesson aimed at improving these skills should look like, and what activities it should contain.This unit showed me that the most important thing is to motivate yourself contsantly to work as good as you can and to be aware of differences (age, personality type, a fluency level) between particular students. Also that the teaching/learning process is something reciprocal therefore as a teacher you should take care of relations between you and your students.
