Emma and Angelo from Manchester in the UK completed their TEFL/TESOL certification in Phuket Thailand. In this ITTT TEFL review video they talk about their first week of the course. They outline some of the course components including the input sessions by the trainers and some of the assessment components.

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.

Unit 19 on teaching special groups of students is relevant to me this current school. I am teaching English to Chinese middle students with very low reading and language Lexile levels, ranging from 25 to 525. Since they all speak Chinese and know each very well, they tend to speak that language all day long. It’s very hard for them to turn off that part of their brains in my class. I have signs all over my room that states “English Only”,but they forget. It takes a lot of patience to remind them to practice speaking English with each other, not just with me.
