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 videos and felt myself cringing throughout the first one. It was everything a lesson should not be and I felt terribly sorry for the students who looked bewildered. It demonstrated the need to be warm, open, approachable and to give clear examples of what is expected from students before setting them tasks. I also noticed in the second lesson that pair work gave the students more confidence than working in isolation and also lots more student talk time was produced giving them an opportunity to use and hear more language in class.
