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.
I felt this was a difficult unit with a lot of information to digest. It goes in depth into articulation and the different meanings sentences can have given where the emphasis is placed in a sentence. It also discusses typical patterns for articulation in different types of words. The unit also teaches about linguistics and how speech is formed. It teaches how to pronounce different sounds by moving your tounge or lips certain ways. The phonemic alphabet is introduced and use is encouraged. The alphabet can be taught with modeling, tounge twisters, class dictation, and model visuals.
