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 was a very interesting unit. I found some of the questions confusing and ideas of how to manage a class, different to what I am used to in Mexico.The section on discipline was really enlightening, as this is where I sometimes have problems with children that do not want to be in the class.This is a helpful unit for me, because I see my future ESL role as a teacher of composition. I believe this material attends a little more to matters of speaking than writing, however, and I would have liked to see more balance through the description of more writing instruction techniques.Throughout this unit I have learned the general learning and development theories to keep in mind. I thoroughly enjoyed this unit, seeing as one of my majors was Psychology. I have also learned what students want and need from a lesson and how to adapt my methods to the changes that take place.
