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 was an interesting unit, in particular the phonetic script. Speaking English as a first language, it was interesting to read how to teach such things, that come naturally to me. It was also fascinating being able to get an in-depth look into how articulation of the language comes about. This could be a difficult, however rewarding lesson to teach to new English learners.Unit 9 gives a great overview how to plan a lesson. It made it clear that a lesson plan is made to guide you, but not to be strictly followed. Every single part of the lesson plan is explained, which makes it clear what we have to do for our own lesson plans. It also provides a schedule how to monitor your own classes and how to improve them. It was a very useful unit for me.
