TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 1


Chantelle is taking a 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos with ITTT. This is the first of her video diary entries outlining her experience taking the course. Chantelle took the online course because it was better for her to study online than to commit to attending an onsite course. In this video she talks about the first unit of the course. Unit 1 deals with teachers and learners discussing what makes good teachers and learners as well as the types of roles teachers perform in class, motivation levels of different types of learners and the different language levels.

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.

In this lesson I learned about the different EFL and CEF levels and their descriptions, limiting factors, syllabus design, examinations, and course evaluations. I learned that starters have a basic command of the language compared to upper-interntermediates who have full operational command of the language at a high level. Also, I learned how to design a syllabus based upon the needs of the students and any other requirements. In addition, I learned about various assessment tests of diagnostic, placement, aptitude, achievement, proficiency, and progress.
