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 focused on the role of the teacher and student in an ESL classroom and the relationship between them. I feel that I learned the importance of a teacher taking on different roles within a classroom depending on what is best for the students. For instance, a teacher should not always be in the manager role, because this does not give students an opportunity to participate or practice. I also learned about what motivates students students and the importance of keeping lessons engaging and exciting so that students will want to be involved.
