TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 5


Chantelle details her experience of studying the fifth unit of her online TEFL course with ITTT. In this unit she learnt about classroom management and the different ways you can arrange your classroom and group students according to the needs of the lesson you are going to teach and of the students themselves. The unit also deals with reasons for problem behavior within a lesson and the ways a teacher’s body language can be used to communicate ideas about language as well as to reinforce instructions and requirements of the teacher.

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 enjoyed the video comparison for this unit as it showed the impact a teacher can have on the class with their attitude and level of engagement. The second video was much more enjoyable to watch and it was obvious that the students had fun, were engaged and understood what the teacher was trying to accomplish. The first video was almost painful to watch as I also felt confused and not sure what was requested. The constant use of the phrase "this is easy" only made the students more self-conscience and unsure which impacted the interaction throughout.
