TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Marina
Marina from Moscow completed the 120-hour TEFL course with ITTT while on maternity leave. In her TEFL review she describes initially feeling apprehensive about studying online, Marina found this to be the best way to study for her in her situation. As a teacher of ten years, Marina did find some of the grammar units easier than expected for her but also found useful tips on teaching different skills. ITTTâ€™s courses do not require trainees to have any previous teaching experience but those who have already been teaching for some time can still learn something new to help them develop their skills as an English teacher.
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 repeated information about past continuous tense. I have repeated information about past simple tense. I have repeated information about past perfect continuous tense. I have repeated information about past perfect tense. I have repeated information about regular and irregular forms of verbs.I have learnt about the different groups that I may teach and how to tailor my teaching for such groups. I feel much more prepared for teaching now that I know what groups I may teach. I also saw how to take into consideration how to make the students most comfortable in what ever group they are in.As an inexperienced teacher, this Unit has added a new dimension to the whole course. I never gave much thought to course books and materials in a structured way, but this has taught me the relevance of doing so. I definitely will have to brush up on my creative skills...I can only draw stick men!
