Meera is currently living in France and wants to teach English as a foreign language. In her TEFL review video, Meera tells us how she wasnâ€™t originally aware of TEFL until a friend told her about ITTT. Although initially anxious that the course might take some time to complete, she found the units were easy to follow, informative and enjoyable.
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 covered the productive skills taught to learners which including speaking and writing. I liked the methods used for creating activities for the students to do although I would be inclined to base such exercises on real life interactions such as communicating at work or in a job interview.In this unit, I reviewed the various future tenses. Some future tenses were familiar to me and some were not, but overall they were fairly self-explanatory. I learned that some present tenses are applicable when speaking in the future tense and that there is an infinitive/\"going to\" future tense.This unit has given many different methodologies to consider, as listed on pages 2 through 4. I think that, as presented in this course, the ESA method is the best option as it gives teachers opportunity to use the other types of methods when needed, but to remain focused on what the students need.
