TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Paul


Paul from Australia is currently living in Manila in the Philippines. Paul took the 120-hour online TESOL course without tutor from ITTT. In this TESOL review video, Paul tells us that he found the course to be challenging and rewarding and had a great time completing but feels it would have been better to take the course with tutor support. Since completing the course Paul has been able to observe ESL lessons at the local international school and is looking forward to starting his new career as a TESOL 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.

This unit helped me to better understand the roles of teachers and learners. It was very interesting to find out about different English language levels. I found it highly beneficial to gain knowledge about what makes a good teacher as well as the ways to effectively motivate students to learn English.I learned about how reporting what someone said changes the speech of the sentence. The chart for the direct speech to reported speech was really helpful with laying out the pattern and how the verb tense changes. Also, I learned about conditions and methods that can be used to teach it in a classroom.
