TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Alina


Alina lives in Bucharest in Romania and has been teaching English there for several years. In her TEFL review video she explains how she chose to take the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos from ITTT in order to receive professional training in English language teaching. After researching online, Alina decided that the online course from ITTT best suited her needs to be able to study while also working, which gave her the chance to apply what she was learning to her classes as she progressed through the course. Alina is looking forward to further study with a course in teaching English to young learners.

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 one” discusses the roles, responsibilities and qualities of teachers. Learners’ unique stages, cultural sensitivity and qualities of a good learner are topics also presented. I learnt adult students are more anxious and self disciplined than children. I learnt communication practice increases learners’ confidence. I learnt correct pronunciation interests adults. I believe oral practise reduces nerves; repeating words (by oneself) will help to retain content. Meeting and conversing in English with other ESL learners helps to retain learning further still. ↵
