In this TESOL review video, Mehmet tells us how he found the videos in the course to be useful and that he would recommend the course to anyone considering teaching English.
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 covers concepts of Phonology. It stresses that it is difficult to teach pronunciation and that often it is neglected and the most challenging task in foreign language acquisition. The Unit goes into some detail about the science behind the study of phonology/phonetics. It provides helpful diagrams and web links, as well as book recommendations on the subject.The pronunciation and phonology unit is actually the hardest part for me to teach since my first language is not English. This unit indeed helped! The knowledge of manner and place of articulation is clear and can be introduced to elder English learners. Using peer dictation and by reading phonemes guessing the meaning are a good and fun way to practice during lessons.
