TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Ben


Ben taught English in South Korea for four years before returning to his native California. In this TEFL review he describes how after returning home, he decided to seek out further qualifications in teaching English and found ITTT’s online TEFL course was the right one for him. Despite teaching English for several years, Ben found that the course had several new things to teach him including new methods and techniques.

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.

This unit focused on the topic of teaching and learning. It discussed the top 4 learning and behavior theories which are as follows: (1) Maturation Theory, (2) Environmental Theory, (3) Constructivism Theory, and lastly (4) Cognitive Developmentalists Theory. This unit also explained the difference of language acquisition which applied to one's Native Language versus to Language Learning which applied to a second language. I appreciated how this unit explained the importance of classroom set-up as well as setting the atmosphere in relation to a student's learning environment.
