What is an ESL teacher?


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.

I'm not sure this unit had an impact on me as a new English teacher. It was very UK centered. Most schools in foreign countries have their own testing requirements. I also believe the school gives placement tests to students prior to assigning them to various levels. The teacher will primarily give progress tests to help prepare for future lessons.This unit emphasis the importance of selecting, not only the course books in relation to a students level. Unfortunately a teacher is often left out of the course books selection process. This means that a teacher needs to pay close attention to the teaching material and may have to omit, adapt, supplement or replace parts of the teaching material.
