TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 5


Chantelle details her experience of studying the fifth unit of her online TEFL course with ITTT. In this unit she learnt about classroom management and the different ways you can arrange your classroom and group students according to the needs of the lesson you are going to teach and of the students themselves. The unit also deals with reasons for problem behavior within a lesson and the ways a teacher?s body language can be used to communicate ideas about language as well as to reinforce instructions and requirements of the teacher.

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.

After looking at the present tenses, I finally understand the differences between these past tenses. I didn't know that the names (past perfect, past continuous, etc) were so systematically and scientifically organized. Until now, I thought they were just randomly named for random uses, where you can just punch in any of the past tenses and they would all convey the same meaning.This lesson was all about phonetics and how to teach them in the classroom - I've never taught phonetics in class, but I would imagine the phonetic script would be extremely difficult for other English learners to learn - almost like ANOTHER language on top of English. I didn't know the script well, so this lesson helped prepare me in case I would ever be required to teach this.
