TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Amy


In this TESOL review video, graduate Amy from South Africa tells us how she took two online courses with ITTT; the 120-hour course with videos and tutor support and the course in teaching English to young learners. After completing the courses Amy accepted an English teaching position in Korea.

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.

While modals, phrasal verbs, and passive voice can be challenging for student to understand, they are an important step in refining the English language. Students utilize modal auxiliary verbs to express obligation, permission, possibility, ability and advice. By teaching passive voice, teachers expand the students knowledge of more complex syntax and ways of communicating in English.At first, I thought IPA will be hard for me to understand, as I have never learned it before. Learning the mouth diagram with the IPA made it easier to understand. I think it also depends upon the individuals accent when pronouncing. Intonation is also important as it carries the message of the spoken sentence. I think this made me realize that clarity is more important than accuracy.
