Can non native English speakers take a TEFL course?
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.
Unit 5 is about a number of different teaching themes that can be applied to a range of contexts and situations. The unit covers information about Case studies, Frameworking, Problem-based learning, Games, Computer Aided Language Learning and Speech Act Theory. I have learned about the techniques that can be applied to these teaching themes (mainly the process of the activities and how to put the theory into practice). It also contains useful lesson plan samples and online resources for lesson planning outlines and authentic material for research purposes.
