TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Jo Ann


Jo Ann took the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support from ITTT. In this TEFL review video Jo Ann tells how she completed the course in six weeks and despite not needing the tutor support, was glad that is was there if necessary. Jo Ann is now volunteering her time as an English tutor at her local library and plans to move to Santiago in Chile for a year to teach English. It should be noted that volunteering your services as an English teacher at your local library or community centre is not only a great way to do something for your community, it is also an excellent means of gaining classroom experience to add to you CV or resume before heading out to teach English abroad.

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.

I will freely admit that these concepts are new to me. Sometimes the differences in the Activate and Engage stages I found to be very subtle. I looked back on my unsuccessful efforts to learn German while in Germany and can wish that some of the activate activities had been tried by the teacher. She adhered to the Grammar/Translate model and it made for a boring class.Working through this unit has taught me a lot about what equipment and teaching aids to use and when to use them. I have learned That visual aids can be very useful, but not to use it too often as it will ultimately distract the students more than it will actually aid them in their learning experience. All of the references will prove very useful when I start teaching.
