TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Amanda


Amanda from Brazil is currently living in Ankara, Turkey. Amanda completed her TEFL course with ITTT and found a job just two weeks after graduating. In this TEFL review video Amanda recommends ITTT’s TEFL course for those wanting to teach English abroad. Amanda liked how the course not only covered grammar but also taught methods and techniques that can help you become a great 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.

Teaching new language will require creativity on my part as an instructor. When receptive and/or productive vocabulary is very limited, I think much realia or many pictures will be very necessary to teach new vocabulary. Also, the vocabulary being taught will have to be simple nouns and verbs as students will lack the knowledge to understand explanations of more abstract concepts. I think teaching by language function is a really great idea for students that want to just learn enough language to get by on a vacation or brief encounter with English speakers.
