Zeki is from Turkey and currently working as an English teacher in Mongolia. He enjoyed working through the units and especially found the grammar units very useful. He highly recommends this certification course for anyone interested in teaching abroad.
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's main focus was on ways of teaching. It specifically focused the Engage, Study and Activate approach and its different varieties. I really liked the analogy of a tree with grammar being the trunk and branches while vocabulary and function are the leaves. An ESL teacher most know how to balance each between all of these in order to prepare the students as best as possible.Knowing how to manage a class is extremely important as a teacher, as you want the information you are teaching to be able to be digested in an easy and natural way. With the tips from unit 5 - Managing Classes, I was able to understand the importance of rapport, seating arrangements, student talk time and teacher talk time, how to give instructions and lastly how to group students.
