In this TESOL review, ITTT graduate Miguel talks about his experience taking the online TESOL course. Miguel had already been teaching English for several years in Korea before deciding to take an online TESOL course with ITTT. Although reluctant to take the course at first, he found it to be very informative and helpful.
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 learned the differences between teaching vocabulary, grammar, and language functions. An interesting thing is grammar is more structured on when you teach it, but I teacher has a bit more freedom in deciding what vocabulary to teach. The teacher can decide this based on what words they think the student would benefit from learning.This unit was very enjoyable and I feel that the information on different tests will help me as a future teacher. I was unaware of some of these tests, such as the diagnostic test. The example placement test is a useful resource for developing future tests. On reflection, I feel that I will be able to use this knowledge in my future teaching position.
