TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Alina


Alina lives in Bucharest in Romania and has been teaching English there for several years. In her TEFL review video she explains how she chose to take the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos from ITTT in order to receive professional training in English language teaching. After researching online, Alina decided that the online course from ITTT best suited her needs to be able to study while also working, which gave her the chance to apply what she was learning to her classes as she progressed through the course. Alina is looking forward to further study with a course in teaching English to young learners.

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 found the suggestions for games to be very helpful in this unit. I've been wanting to increase the use of games to supplement the books that we are required to use and I've already used one of them with a student whom I tutor. The section on analyzing a course book was also helpful since the teachers at my school are considering changing books for the second semester.This unit focused on evaluating students both inside the classroom and outside of the classroom and the different testing methods to gage the students levels of speech throughout the course. I learned the difference in Diagnostic tests, progress tests, placement tests and external exams as well as when to implement each to better my students language learning experience.
