Meera is currently living in France and wants to teach English as a foreign language. In her TEFL review video, Meera tells us how she wasnâ€™t originally aware of TEFL until a friend told her about ITTT. Although initially anxious that the course might take some time to complete, she found the units were easy to follow, informative and enjoyable.
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.
In this unit I have learnt about conditionals and reported speech.
I have learnt how to form the zero, first, second, third and mixed conditionals and their uses in the language.
I have also learnt how to form reported speech and which expressions change in the sentence.
I was also given teaching ideas both for the conditionals and reported speech.Unit 3 gives a review of some of the administrative style functions of a teacher. Establishing the needs of the students, designing tests and syllabi that meet the needs of the students as a whole, and testing methods are all covered to some degree. The examples of tests were particularly useful as it isn't every day a non-teacher gets to see them.
