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 was interesting because it reiterated the importance go the ESA structure. This structure helps me as a teacher visualize the ways in which I can plan and time my lesson plans. I also really enjoyed seeing the written lesson plan format provided in this unit. The model helped me visualize the ways I could potentially organize informations and lessons.The unit successfully symbolizes phonetic parts of the language with vivid applications. Moreover, the pronunciation parts also explained aptly with proper diagrams and charts to enable the learners grasp the utterance part effectively. The International Phonetic Alphabets are also very helpful especially at times of referring dictionary for actual pronunciation.
