Why did you choose this program?

I choose ITTT Online TEFL Course to increased my basic knowledge and comprehension of my skills as a TEFL teacher. I needed to broaden my knowledge in English and to master the basic teaching and communication tools. Being a teacher is my ambition. Since I am from the region of the world where every aspect of learning takes place in a common English language, I needed to go deeper in the development of my English communication skills. I choose to enroll in Thailand ITTT online course to develop my English and teaching methods.

What did your program provider (or university) assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

ITTT provided me with appropriate instructional materials relevant to my career. I mapped out enough time to study and practice the assignments and review questions. ITTT provided me with assignments, tests, study materials and learning evaluation that assisted my learning process. Course discussions were of high quality. The instructors promoted peer learning which encouraged students' participation.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

My advice to anyone wishing to offer the ITTT online TEFL course is to study hard, read and revise the course materials. The course requires strong Internet appliance as well. You need to me active in the use of computer. Studying ITTT online TEFL in Thailand requires 15 to 25 hours per week. It is very much ideal to review course materials on daily basis.

Prospective travelers would want to know the food and weather condition in Thailand. Thai people are very accommodating and hospitable. They value humanity and respect people's culture and background. Studies online is a very good experience as well as visiting Thailand. Learning in ITTT is enticing and engaging.

It looks good to start the day with ITTT reading assignments. Studying with ITTT is a done with integrated and personalized learning. Expect to spend 15 to 25 minutes a week. An average day spine from reading assignment, discussion forum posts, quizzes and applications. There is much research and outdoor activities which enhances learning abilities.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

My greatest fear was cultural discrimination. In ITTT online TEFL course, students are made up of distinguished culture, race, ethnicity, I apply 'International Mindedness'. In that content, each and every one of the student was treated equal as we respect and value the culture, race, ethnic group and right of everyone. In same development, lessons were designed to identify the gap (be it cultural, intellectual quotient, level of understanding, and so on), facing the achievement gap and closing it in case of understanding. I always embrace diversity owing to the fact that each and every individual is unique. There is no room for discrimination. Each student is treated equal irrespective of culture, ethnicity or economic statue.
