TESOL review from Polina


This TESOL review is from Polina. She is from Greece and recently completed our 120-hour online TEFL/TESOL training course right next to the beach at home. She found the course to be very interesting and learned a lot of new things. She is excited to use her new learned skills at the end of the year when she is going back to the capital city of Athens to work with new clients.

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.

I have learnt about Classroom Arrangement, how to establish a good rapport. The possible causes of problem behaviour in the classroom. Also, apropriate methods to improve the effectiveness of giving instructions, advantages and disadvantages using pair work, whole-class grouping, working as individuals. The different seating arrangements(orderly row, circular or horseshoe etc).After reading the whole unit, I realized that I still do need to study English(grammar) and practice more. This unit makes me more careful in making/constructing sentences. It is not hard to understand the correct usage but it just slips out of my mind especially when talking. It is not enough to just study tenses. Application is very important, either in writing or speaking.
