TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Cilene


Cilene from Portugal has been an English teacher for 12 years teaching children, teenagers and adults. She took the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos from ITTT and in this TEFL review video Cilene tells us how, despite her prior experience as a teacher, she was able to use the course to revise topics she already knew and also learn new things to enhance her classes. While taking the course she was working with a company teaching groups of students of different levels which allowed her to implement the things she was learning into her lessons.

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.

The role of teachers and learners. The various qualities of good teachers. The motivation of learners based on age and experience factors. Various techniques used in a classroom to insure that everyone is included, not intimidated, and experiences a good learning experience. Cultural differences that may impact learning, i.e. Asia students vs. Latin American students.This unit taught me about the different challenges often faced in engaging students in speaking and writing activities. I learned about the different approaches of study that accuracy and fluency allow for, and why both are important to the language student. I also learned many ideas for games and activities (both controlled and guided) that I can do with my students.
