TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Steffie


This is a TESOL review from Steffie from the Netherlands who decided to take her 120-hour online TEFL/TESOL course to pursue a teaching career in China. Her husband is currently working at a university in China and Steffie also wanted to start working as a teacher there. The course gave her a lot of joy and she learned all the skills and techniques she needs to succeed as a teacher.

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 showed the difference in a poor and an effective teacher, it shows how to use gestures, body language and an overall positive attitude to properly engage the class. This is a valuable lesson to a novice teacher and it is shown clearly in a video format. It was also great at showing how to clearly communicate with students that won't completely understand your language.This unit explains how a teacher could deal with potential challenges. We learn how a large class dynamic is different from a small one. We learn about ways to persuade reluctant students to take part in the class activities. We learn how to tackle difficulties with listening to texts. The chapter also stresses the importance of not using the native language in an English class.
