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.
The crux of the unit was the categorization of different roles of both the learner and teacher, as well the identification of students' abilities, cultural limitations and the different ways to get the most out of the different modalities of the learning process. I also noted the way students are categorized based on ability in the European system.The unit provided a picture of what a teacher is expected to be in many cases, and how to facilitate learning in a classroom. It also discusses various levels of students, whether it be adult or child, or beginning learners and advanced learners. From this chapter, I was able to attain a brief overview of what it could be like to be a TEFL teacher.
