Andre from Brazil is currently living in Ireland. Andre took the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos from ITTT. In this TEFL review video Andre tells us how he was pleasantly surprised with the course. Initially skeptical, he found the course to be well designed, comprehensive and flexible. He admits that the course is challenging but is well worth the effort and he thinks it is great value for money.
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.
A lot of the information in this unit was common sense but I did learn the criteria for selecting appropriate vocabulary. One thing I will say that was/is tricky was/is remembering the different techniques for teaching vocabulary versus grammatical structures versus language functions/structures. I'll need to use cue cards to remember which goes with which.Testing is an important part of TEFL courses, because it can show how advanced the student is before the course starts, show progression during a course, or depict how much a student learned and retained at the end of a course. It not only helps to show how much the student is learning, but also shows how effectively the teacher is teaching the information.
