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 gave me a good understanding of the tools and techniques teachers use in order to structure a sound and effective syllabus, including the initial meeting, needs analysis and various tests that determine the student placement and course content. We also looked at end of the course assessments and examinations that students can take, as well as course evaluations.This unit is great and concise! It is very important to understand how to bring in new vocabulary to a student's vernacular and it extremely useful to see it clearly spelled out the different functions and steps of doing so. The Engage/Study/Activate models of teaching seem to provide a large variety of techniques to assist the ease of learning and teaching a new language.
