TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Maksim


Maksim from Russia is living and working in Shanghai, China. He took the 120-hour online TEFL course with ITTT and in his TEFL review video he tells us how he found the course to be well organized, interesting and not complicated. Maksim thinks that having the TEFL certificate played an important role in helping him to find a job teaching English in China.

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 different ways of teaching. It introduced several types, including ones briefly mentioned in other lessons. Afterwards it focused on the ESA- Engage, Study, Activate teaching structure. I feel that this unit was not so much about learning of different teaching methods, but how to use a specific one instead due to the immense focus on ESA.This unit talked about teaching and learning: teachers and students, the roles a teacher can have in a classroom, the advantages and disadvantages of teaching adults, groups vs. one-on-one, teaching methods and how to deal with the most common issues a Business English teacher can face. Summing up, this unit focused on what to keep in mind when teaching adults.
