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.

The unit was clear and easy to understand. I really enjoy the lesson plans given at the end of units since it is sometimes difficult to see how to put receptive skills in a lesson. It was good to see that you can pair the two receptive skills easily together. I think it would be beneficial to also read out loud rather than by themselves depending on skill.I've learned the importance of teacher-student roles in the classroom, evaluation of student abilities, being an inspiring, and knowledgeable role model for the students. I have been reminded that the role of the teacher is more about student learning than teacher teaching. I also have learned the importance of caring and enthusiasm to help students learn.
