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 first unit can be divided into two parts. The first part explains what a good teacher should be like and what roles he or she plays in class. The second part is about learners, it lists a successful student's qualities and gives an idea of how students can differ from each other in age, knowledge, behavior etc. Also, two frameworks for English level evaluating were given.Unit 17 \"Equipment and teaching aids\" provided us with ideas on what equipment a TEFL teacher can use in the classroom and how to handle this tools correctly. A teacher can use the classic blackboard in his or her classroom or a modern whiteboard. However mostly depends on what the school can provide.
