TEFL review from Paavani


This TEFL review is from Paavani. She is from Ohio, USA, but just moved to South Korea where she will work as an English teacher. As this will be her first full-time teaching position, she decided to take our online TEFL/TESOL program to get the best possible foundation in teaching before starting her new position. After completing the course, she feels ready and prepared to teach Korean students in her own EFL classroom and she recommends this course to other new teachers.

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.

I have learned in this unit that, to be an effective teacher possess knowledge in all aspects of learning, sensitive in different culture, and in student's capacity in learning. It is very important, as a teacher to have a good working knowledge and a good listener to it's sorroundings too.This was an incredibly challenging unit. the phonetic script is very difficult to interpret and i honestly don't understand the value of it. i get trying to interpret a new language, but this was a way to complicated. but i buckled down and got through and i believe i got it done correctly.I am so glad to be taking this course and I continue to be excited about the opportunities that may follow. I found this unit very helpful and many of my own questions were answers in regards to what one may expect. I look forward to all of the units that are yet to be completed. Thank you.
