Dawn decided to take an online TEFL course with ITTT to enable her to take advantage of the high demand for English teachers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In this TEFL review video Dawn describes her experience of taking ITTT's 120-hour online course with tutor support.
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 provided insight into three aspects of teaching a new language: vocabulary, grammar structure, and functions. It explained what was necessary for students to understand about each aspect and offered different variations of the ESA approach to teach each aspect. It was helpful to contrast each of these aspects and think through lesson plans and approaches to teaching each.I really found this lesson to be totally inconsequential because I would never teach my students the names of these different types of sounds and words that mean different types of sounds. It would not only be a waste of time but it would also confuse them. Additionally, this lesson was so confusing that I doubt if I actually learned anything. It was more annoying than anything else.
