Irina took our 120-hour TEFL course to enhance her professional portfolio. She is working as an English teacher in Russia and is able to use the learned techniques in her classroom to improve her teaching style.
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 was helpful in setting a framework of the course. We learned about teaching styles and how each are important. As well, we learned about motivations for students and how our teaching styles can equip students. Additionally, we learned about the stages in learning a new language. This is vital to understand to assess where are students are.I had a hard time understanding countable and uncountable nouns. I also had a hard time understanding definite and indefinite articles. However, I moved through this unit slowly and think that I will understand that concepts and application eventually. It is important to note that so many verbs are irregular, I hope to emphasize this to my students.
