TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Ben


Ben taught English in South Korea for four years before returning to his native California. In this TEFL review he describes how after returning home, he decided to seek out further qualifications in teaching English and found ITTT?s online TEFL course was the right one for him. Despite teaching English for several years, Ben found that the course had several new things to teach him including new methods and techniques.

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 was overall very helpful with teaching me how to work with the textbook. The boomerang style ESA was a little confusing considering we didn't go over it in this unit. Luckily i used my memory and was able to get what i feel is the best answers submitted. I feel it would be more helpful if you went over the ESA again as a reminder in each unit if its going to be on the test.This unit is useful because it separates what is useful and not useful for teaching vocabulary, grammar structure and language function when teaching English as a second language. I particularly appreciated the acknowledgement that deciding what vocabulary to teach is open to interpretation. Logically, this makes sense, as vocabulary prioritization can be dependent on many factors.
