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.

Similarly organized as the previous unit, this unit focuses on productive methods of learning such as speaking and writing. The unit emphasizes the relative importance of accuracy and fluency in given activities, stressing that accuracy is useful for writing and some forms of speaking (such as drilling), whereas fluency is better for role-playing and activities which involve students talking to one another. While still trying to drill potential teachers on how the ESA method works for this particular phase of learning, it was more difficult and less clear than unit 11.
