TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Linda, Part 5


Linda lives in China and is taking the 120-hour TEFL course with ITTT. This is the fifth installment of her TEFL review video journal outlining her experiences on the course. In this video Linda tells us about unit 5 of the course which covers aspects of classroom management. The unit has plenty of useful information on how students can be grouped within class and the types of activities that are suitable for different groupings. It also covers ways of dealing with problem behavior and methods for engaging students when they may not be interested in learning. At a quarter of the way through the course Linda is still clearly excited about earning her TEFL certificate.

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 has given me great information and insight into lesson planning and the different techniques used to teach which I have had no prior knowledge on. It is great to know the theory behind teaching and how this can affect a students progress. There is also great tips and suggested activities given.The 19th unit of this course is about teaching special groups. Those groups can consist of children or businesspeople and need individual teaching methods. A businessman, for example, may need to learn how to write offers or formal letters, whilst a child will not have use for this kind of knowledge yet.
