TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Thom


Thom from the Netherlands recorded this TEFL review video after completing the ITTT 120-hour online TEFL course. Thom took the course with tutor support and videos. He notes that the course materials are well written and easy to understand. He also found the tutor support to be very useful. Thom enjoyed the experience and found that the job support he received after graduating really helpful.

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.

The last lesson dealt with receptive skills (reading and listening), but this unit covered teaching productive skills which are the speaking and writing skills. I have always noticed that in the English classrooms most of the students are very shy when it comes to speaking. They are not getting enough English conversation practice in the classroom, and it shows. Most of the lessons focus on reading and listening, in English. The writing skills as mentioned in the text come from homework assignments but not in class work. The students fear embarassment more than anything.
