If you take an online TEFL course with ITTT you are in no way compromising on the theory of English language teaching as our courses cover all the essential topics required. The 120-hour TEFL certification is our most popular online course option. It includes 20 in-depth units on all the main subjects you really need to be aware of if you want to start your first teaching job with full confidence in your teaching knowledge. In this course we spend plenty of time looking at English grammar and how to teach it effectively. These sections cover items such as the tense system, conditionals, modals, passive voice and much more. These topics might be a little scary to some trainees in the beginning, but with the help of our clear and informative materials you will have nothing to fear.
As well as extensive coverage of grammar topics, the course also covers classroom management subjects in some depth. Wherever you are teaching and whoever your students are, the role of a teacher is always much tougher if you are not familiar with the basics of organising and controlling a classroom. Other important areas of teaching that are covered during the course include teaching methodologies, the use of classroom materials, technology in the classroom, and evaluation and testing techniques.
