TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 1


Chantelle is taking a 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos with ITTT. This is the first of her video diary entries outlining her experience taking the course. Chantelle took the online course because it was better for her to study online than to commit to attending an onsite course. In this video she talks about the first unit of the course. Unit 1 deals with teachers and learners discussing what makes good teachers and learners as well as the types of roles teachers perform in class, motivation levels of different types of learners and the different language levels.

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 explores the wide variety of resources that a teacher can use in the classroom. We look at the materials and technologies that are available and how to use them to improve your lessons. The unit also contains a useful list of online resources. The usages of different teaching aids introduced in the unit helps me to make lessons more interesting and effective.We tend to forget that reading and listening is equally important. I tend to focus more on the one than the other because it is easier to do in class. It is sometimes challenging to teach little kids how to read and sometimes even more difficult to get them to listen and understand. The games in this unit is very helpful when in comes to making these challenges easier.
