TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Franziska


Franziska is living and working in Madrid, Spain. She has recently earned her TEFL certification by completing a 120-hour online course with ITTT. In this TEFL review video Franziska tells us about her experience on the course.

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.

In this unit, I went over the possible different ways to use the necessary vocabulary learning methods (i.e. appropriacy, similarities to students' own language, meanings, etc...) and to not focus on the smaller side of words such as the origins and how often the structures are used. I also learned how to introduce grammatical structures and language functions.This unit discussed about the various aspects of phonology namely stress, rhythm and intonation. It also discussed about pronunciation specifically about phonemic symbols in the English language, and the place and manner of articulation. I learned about the various teaching techniques to be used to teach intonation, stress and pronunciation of individual sounds.
