TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Ben


This TEFL review video was recorded by Ben from Brisbane, Australia. Ben has spent the last five years living and working in Chiang Mai, Thailand. During his time in Chiang Mai he has been teaching a variety of skills including building and life skills. Ben has always wanted to be a teacher and decided to take ITTT’s 120-hour online TEFL course as a means to achieving that goal. He found the course to be ideal for his situation as he has a lot of work to do in Thailand and the flexibility of learning online allowed him to study the course whenever he was free.

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 focusses on the diffferent type of english classes that may become the context for teaching. One-on-one, small group and larger groups are the main possibilities for teaching english. Business english classes are put in a different light, and expectations are set a little lower, as most of the students already have a job and full schedules.I learned and reviewed the different types of speech and grammar in the English language. This section helped me better understand English grammar. Even though I am a native speaker and do this grammar correctly in my day to day life, I rarely think about what I am doing. This section allowed and showed me exactly what I am doing when I write or speak.
