I carried out my TEFL course in order to teach in Thailand. It wasn't until I had paid my fees and signed up for a course, that I was told I could not teach without a Bachelor Degree. I had made it known at the time of application that I had no Bachelor Degree

The course was quite comprehensive but the format was such that I could remember new things for the short term and forget them quickly after having taken the course. I don't really use too much of what I learned now when I am actually teaching. A lot of the content was a review for me anyway. However, it could be very useful to people who have no prior background in teaching English as a Foreign Language.

The staff was quite rude to me and when they were wrong they would back track on their words or ignore my statements altogether. The materials in the units are very outdated. There is information on how to use a cassette player. If you are still stuck in the early 1990s then this might be the course for you. Maybe you can learn a little about how to use the over head projector while you're at it. The video learning was also made in the 2000s and the teach had no mic so I could barely here him talking. There was a lot of background noise which made it seem like a low budget (pornography) film. This course was absolutely awful. I would not recommend it to anyone.

The ITTT course was filled with spelling errors. The tutor I was assigned was not helpful and often rude. The job assistance is minimal. I did not feel supported by ITTT.

Hello, how are you? Let me first say that I found your classes worthwhile, and learned a lot. One suggestion is to provide some ideas about conversational English lessons, aside from grammar. After taking your course, I took two jobs in South Korea, and one of them prefers I teach no grammar, but conversation. I am finding it very difficult to get some of my students to talk. I wish there was more advice, from you and online, about how to provide some structure to conversational English. I gave you a poor rating because, after coming to Korea, I expected to be able to refer to the lessons I took in order to plan my own. However, I was not allowed access. I feel like I paid for this information, and should be able to keep it on hand. Regards, Tricia

I think there is not balance in the course. Units are too easy but the final paper is not that easy (and the instructions were not clear at all). If you want that teachers write a good lesson plan, the units should be more detailed.

The class in an of itself was fine, but it took a year for my actual certificate to arrive. I tried getting in contact with iTTT, but was rerouted over and over again. I thought I was never going to receive the formal documentation until out of the blue, it showed up. I took this course over a year ago and I am just now doing a review? What's with that. Otherwise, the content was good. It was a very basic program with a straight forward approach. Good for the price, I suppose.
