Excellent course

I got retired and felt bored. So I decided to learn one more skill- to be an English teacher. English is my second language, and it was quite a hard task for me. I was looking for a good teaching platform, I searched few courses very carefully. At the same time I was searching for the fair price. From many options I chose ITTT, and I've never reggreted it.
This is awesome course. I've completed 220 hours course : 120 hours online TEFL, 50 hours specialized Teaching English to Young Learners course and 50 hours specialized Teaching Business English course.
The information in each course was very interesting, well presented, so it was even kind of fun to study.
There are also a lot of references to other resources presented in the courses.
The support from the stuff was also a great experience: as soon as I ask for the help, the answer was almost immediately provided.
I just want to cheer other non native English speakers up to take any of ITTT courses if they want to continue studying and working (at any age).
I am 72 years old , so far I'm not sure about my future work , but I feel very happy and excited that I found my strength and willpower to complete ITTT courses.
I highly recommend ITTT courses to those people who are looking for the best education as a teacher!

Pros
  • Professionalism
  • Great support
  • Fun

ITTT 120-hr TEFL Course - Online

I have completed the 120-hr course recently and I would love to share what my experience has been like. I can't recommend the course highly enough! ITTT offers a balanced training, manageable chunks of new information presented in a thought-provoking way. Throughout the course , I have gained in-depth comprehension of different types of TEFL methods, as well as awareness of different types of students and how to approach the lesson in order to meet the needs of all learners. Thank you for the ongoing professional support!

Loved it!

170-hour TEFL + TEO was an amazing thing to do and I believe the right choice. I approached it with mixed feelings: on one hand, I was overconfident, and on the other hand, I had doubts. By the third unit all my feelings straightened out and I started to enjoy myself. Easy to navigate, but you have to concentrate and get familiar with the terms. It is dense, it is useful. I had an experience with some other online courses, but this one stands out. Soon I found myself checking and reading every link, I had to return to some parts to connect it with later content, but it worked like a skillfully guided net without any confusion or misunderstanding. It was not only a course but a powerful tool.

Pros
  • Content
  • User interface
  • Exercises and exams
Cons
  • Give us more online games and activities

TEFL Online is great

ITTT 170-hour TEFL course was a challenge for me. I was surprised by how dense and informative the course is, therefore useful when starting your teaching career. In the beginning, I was worried if I am up to this challenge, but after some time I understood that I am getting a needed foundation to become a professional. While refreshing grammar was an inevitable element that was expected, an upgrade with teaching methods, tips and tricks created an ensemble that is at the highest level. It was motivating and given through a pleasant user interface. From one unit to another I felt more confident that I am building knowledge that I will use and return to from time to time to enforce my career and overcome any possible obstacles. Great work, ITTT!

Pros
  • Steep learning curve
  • Easy to use user interface
  • A wonderful support
Cons
  • Give us more online games and activities

220 Hour Master TEFL

It had been over 2 years since completing ym ITTT 220 Hour Master TEFL online. I needed help getting my certificate notorized for visa applications overseas and they responded promptly, with very clear details amd examples of what I should do. ITTT provided me with the tools and support to succeed, not only during the time of completing my TEFL course online, but also helped tremendously afterwards, with any other questions I had. They're a fantastic and reliable company. As an ESL teacher with over 6 years of experience in the field, I can strongly recommend ITTT as the top teaching certification provider available.

Why did you choose this program?

Well, a number of factors motivated me to choose this course.

To begin with, I completed my graduation and post-graduation on economics. However, I teach English because I am good at it although I don't have any certification. That's why I was searching for one for me.

I thought this course matched my interest very much. I could do it at my own pace.

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

Well, I took the course without any tutor. So, I didn't get any assistance directly from the tutor. However, the course materials they provided are so lucid and elucidating that I didn't have that many questions to ask. Sometimes, I browsed through some sites as suggested in the materials. Besides, whenever I wanted to know something, I dropped emails and found them instantly.

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

I would say that anyone, who would like to undertake the course, should have the basics of the English language to draw the best out of the course. It's due to the fact that one has to understand the approach and the intended tone of the author of the materials to do well in the tests. Most importantly, it's about developing quality, not understanding only.

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

It's entirely up to the individuals. As far as I am concerned, this course is very helpful for all kinds of participants, mostly for those with jobs. It's because there's no making haste when it comes to taking tests. It's really student-friendly and so less burdensome for the students. Thus, learning will be according to the will of the students.

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

Well, although I haven't moved to another country to teach English, I have had to move to another city far away from my hometown. One thing I found very challenging is the cultural differences alongside the language. Sometimes, I have to get stuck understanding the way my students speak. However, I managed to get through by spending time out just to observe their lifestyle and talk to those who came here earlier.

Staff Interviews

Tell us a little about yourself. What position do you hold there?

My name is Christine Thompson and I am one of the Directors of Studies at Threshold Training Associates which hosts the TEFL International Prague program. I am chiefly responsible for career guidance and job interview training.

I have been teaching EFL full time since 1996 and have worked for universities, language schools and primary schools in Japan, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. My original degree is in International Relations with a Spanish minor and I hold a teaching certificate and teaching diploma from Cambridge University.

What makes Prague a unique destination to obtain TEFL Certification?

Prague is an interesting and fun city with a long history of preparing and employing TEFL teachers. I am the prime example of this phenomena; I took my DELTA course in Prague 7 years ago and have yet to leave. Our program runs in a functioning language school so trainees get an authentic TEFL experience and will come into daily contact with TEFL teachers and their students.

What are some extracurricular activities students participate in during this course? One of the best features of Prague and the Czech Republic is its pubs and of course, its beer. Our course coordinator is a self-studied expert on the city’s hostelries and has found some of the most authentic Prague pub and musical experiences available to share with our trainees. In addition, we employ several teachers who also work as city guides who can give tailor-made tours of the city.

Do students generally stay in Prague to teach after completing this course?

A number of trainees stay in the Czech Republic to teach after completing the course. There is quite a demand for qualified teachers in Prague and the Czech Republic in general. As part of the course we help trainees with writing CV’s, creating successful demo lessons and interviewing techniques, skills that they can apply to any position they decide to apply for.

Both Prague TEFL and TEFL International have a broad network of personal contacts who can provide career advice and contact information for schools the world over. Also, our course has an intensive and hands-on young learners component that makes our trainees attractive for destinations with a high concentration of YL classes like China, Korea and other parts of South East Asia.

What is one piece of advice you would offer someone considering obtaining TEFL Certification in Prague?

My advice for anyone considering doing a TEFL program anywhere: do as much reading and preparation as possible before you come. Read up on English grammar basics, what types of EFL are taught and where, consider what your expenses will be and what the visa restrictions are for places where you might like to work.

Being well-prepared will help you to make the most of your time on the course; be it asking good questions to the trainers or knowing what kind of teaching you would like to do when you finish or having an idea of where you’d like to live and work.
