How do I get a job teaching English in Japan?


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 gave me a brief overview of the basic aspects of English grammar. Because I learned these rules a long time ago, it was a helpful review to freshen up my understanding of the English language. It was also made clear, which aspects of even basic grammar can be difficult to teach to foreign students, as they might not be familiar with the structure of the English language (for example Japanese students). I think it is important for a teacher to be confident in his/her ability to teach grammar, as a lot of times new teachers are nervous about this.
