TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Alina


Alina lives in Bucharest in Romania and has been teaching English there for several years. In her TEFL review video she explains how she chose to take the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos from ITTT in order to receive professional training in English language teaching. After researching online, Alina decided that the online course from ITTT best suited her needs to be able to study while also working, which gave her the chance to apply what she was learning to her classes as she progressed through the course. Alina is looking forward to further study with a course in teaching English to young learners.

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 focused on methods of teaching the receptive skills of reading and listening. It explained the purpose of receptive skills and the way we use them, how these skills are cultivated in language learning, and provided an example lesson for teaching receptive skills. I found the latter part particularly useful and will utilize it in the future.This unit gave advice on how to introduce new vocabulary and grammatical structures to English language learners. It was nice that the content was related back to the unit on theories and techniques. The examples of straight arrow, boomerang and patchwork lesson plans to introduce certain types of vocabulary and language structures were very helpful.
