TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Francesca


In her TEFL review video Francesca from Germany talks about her 120 hour TEFL/TESOL online course. The course gave her a greater understanding of grammar and phonology. It also gave her many insights into how to structure her lessons. She now feels very confident in her ability to be able to deliver productive lessons to her students. She now plans to further her job prospects by completing ITTT's Teaching English to Young Learners course.

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 was about the receptive skills of listening and reading. The teacher needs to be careful when selecting text to use. Authentic or non-authentic texts should be carefully selected based on the skill level and interests of the students. There are a variety of different reading and listening skills learners employ: predictive, scanning, skimming, reading for details and being able to deduce from the text. All are important skills to develop. I enjoyed the lesson plan examples and the different ways the Engage, Study and Activate phases were used to teach.
