TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Eleanor


Eleanor took her 120-hour online TEFL course with ITTT. In her TEFL review video, Eleanor talks about how she found the course challenging but beneficial to her understanding of how to teach English as a foreign language and how to prepare lesson plans. Having completed the course Eleanor now feels fully prepared to teach English and recommends the course to anyone thinking of starting a career as an English 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.

This lesson used recordings of actual English lessons to demonstrate and contrast effective and ineffective teaching practices. While the teacher’s attitude and teaching methods are purposely exaggerated, the videos clearly highlight the effect a teacher has on his or her students and the overall success of the lesson. In the first of the two videos, students seem confused and reluctant to contribute, whereas in the second video they are much more willing to participate and appear to gain a better understanding of the lesson point (modal auxiliary verbs).
