TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Marija


Marija from Serbia, having completed a degree in English, wanted to take her TEFL course with ITTT to increase her employment opportunities. In this TEFL review, Marija tells us how she found the course to be very well organized and really appreciated the way the course showed her how to take the elements of teaching theory covered in the course and put them into practice. Marija recommends the course to anyone without teaching experience to enhance their knowledge of English language teaching and to gain confidence in the 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.

This unit dealt with the subject of phonology and pronunciation. Intonation and stress are important factors in mastering a new language. General rules were provided to teach which words are stressed in a sentence and which syllables receive the stress in multi-syllabic words.The International Phonetic Language was presented as well as techniques for working on producing these sounds.There were so many methodologies to remember and I honestly forgot most of them, but I did like learning about the Engage-Study-Activate Lesson structure. It gave me several ideas on PowerPoints to make as well as worksheets and fun activities. Based on the three types (ESA, Boomerang, Patchwork), I know I'll use Patchwork a lot. I like structure, but a little wiggle room is nice too.
