Former ESL student Kieu recorded this TEFL review after completing her TEFL course online with ITTT. Already an English teacher, Kiue thought taking the course was the best decision of her career. The course gave her the confidence to apply appropriate teaching methods in her classroom.
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.
In this section, I was introduced to various planning strategies as well as ideas for activities. The text starts with a brief description of concepts on how to teach and what is understood about the learning process. I understand, however, that the focus will be on the ESA structure. My impression is that there is a lot of room for creativity within the ESA-structure when teaching.I found it slightly more understandable than the present tense. Maybe I did not concentrate enough on the present tense unit, but this past tense seems more straight forward. Hopefully it is easier for the students foreign to English also. As the main concepts of simple, continuous, perfect and perfect continuous is consistent, the structure is easier than seeing for the first time.
