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 unit, I have come to know more terminologies about teaching English especially Business English, and I have a more clear idea about receptive and productive skills. What’s more, teaching individuals and groups can be quite different. While teaching adults, English instructors are supposed to know the characteristics of adult learners and the settings as well.The difficulty in teaching young learners in the classroom is maintaining engagement throughout the lesson. Therefore, teachers of young learners need to incorporate activities that are meaningful, engaging, and also entertaining.When using a variety of techniques and activities, children forget they are in a step-by-step language lesson, and the learning comes naturally.
