TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Edina


Edina decided to take a TEFL certificate course with ITTT after joining an NGO providing English teachers to students in Turkey. In this TEFL review video Edina talks about the many benefits of taking the course, including the extensive materials covering grammar, classroom management and lesson planning, the post course support and the fact that the certificate is recognised around the world.

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.

Unit 13 covered pronunciation and phonology. It mainly includes intonation, stress, the phonetic alphabet, phonetic symbols and articulation. Very helpful and useful for me was the information about teaching techniques and info about when to teach pronunciation. I will try to give space to phonology as this area of language learning is often neglected.The people that I intend to teach are known to me. Their knowledge of English is VERY basic. I will be very challenged to teach them English if I have to somehow communicate these sorts of rules to them. I will have to work hard to determine how to help them become conversational without rule memorization. They would simply become discouraged and quit.
