Do TEFL Teachers Need a Second Language?


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 gave me a clear and concise set of rules that will help when I need to select a new book or course for class. A good book can supplement a course and enable the students to learn more than one would have the time to learn in class. It is important that the book and class materials line up nicely and also match the student's English level.In this unit I learnt that English language is not that simple, as an English teacher you really need to understand what you are teaching, not take the language for granted. This is a beautiful language, it is very important to be able to pronounce English words so that the adult students can also learn how to. I really learnt a lot from this unit.
