TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Francesca


In her TEFL review video Francesca from Germany talks about her 120 hour TEFL/TESOL online course. The course gave her a greater understanding of grammar and phonology. It also gave her many insights into how to structure her lessons. She now feels very confident in her ability to be able to deliver productive lessons to her students. She now plans to further her job prospects by completing ITTT's Teaching English to Young Learners course.

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.

From this unit, I got a deeper understanding of the role of the teacher in the classroom. I realized that depending on the type of activity and the main goal of the lesson, the roles can be changed throughout the lesson. Moreover, I brushed up my knowledge and became more aware regarding differences in motivation, experience and behavior patterns between young learners and adults.This constitutes the first full unit of the course and we look at a wide range of issues including developmental theories, teaching methodologies for different age groups, the importance of the learning environment and the language skills that students will need to develop. I learned nothing from this chapter. Some of the reference materials might have some information of value.
