This video is the second part of our classroom management series. It focuses on grouping students for class activities. In the video, you will learn about the positives and negatives of group work and individual work. Classroom management is essential for any teacher as it makes sure your lesson has a smooth flow and is beneficial for both you and your students.

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.

In this unit, a learned the importance of the teacher's attitude, who can have a real impact on the level of student participation. If the student participate effectively in the second lesson, it is because the attitude of the teacher is more positive, he also speaks more slowly and clearly in the second lesson, wich helps a lot the student to understand the lesson.This unit has less theoretical content than previous units but the study materials were very interesting. It was challenging to consider of authentic materials which could be used for beginners. So far I've been thinking of signs, directions, warnings which are usually succinct and not strongly grammatical. I also appreciate the opportunity to review ESA variations.
