Yes, I recommend this program

As soon as the coronavirus outbreak started, I immediately thought about taking an online TEFL course. I surfed a bit and found ITTT courses. I took a 120-hour + video + specialized course and all throughout the course received tutor support. I really liked it because I learned a lot of information that I had thought I knew. The content of the course was really informative and modern (learning with new technology). I have got a lot of teaching resources and links, CV examples, and even employment assistance. They provide lifetime certificates and send them directly to your home without any fees.
Definitely recommend Go for it!

This was a great course to start me off as a teacher of English as a foreign language. The course materials covered everything I would need to know and more. Everything was laid out very professionally and straight forward.

The course is reasonably priced and offers many extras such as assistance with finding employment, tutor support and a lot of video content to supplement the lessons. A reasonable time frame is allotted to complete the course which allows people to work through it at their own pace.

I highly recommend ITTT for anyone wishing to complete a TEFL.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have made greater use of the very helpful tutors instead of thinking that I was able to get 100% for everything on my own.

Looking for an international certificate, that's affordable, convenient and a work at your own pace course? TEFL is the right place for you.
This course allows you to work at your own pace and the units progressively build up and so you will not encounter something you have not been taught. Its a great way to beautify your CV and for those who want to experience a different culture altogether, go for it! I recommend this to University graduates more because you are still fresh from school and you have nothing to lose if you're going to stay in a foreign country.

What would you improve about this program?
Reference to job sites for graduates. Make it easy for graduates to visit sites.

The course was a bit tough going (I still don't think I have those tenses properly sorted out in my head yet) until I got myself into a routine and then things started to go a lot smoother.

I recommend doing a unit a day of the 120 Hour online course, and getting the video package as well. Block out 2 hours a day. (I found that 10:00am to 12:00 noon worked best for me) and start by watching the video even if it doesn't make sense. Then when you read the PDF you'll get lots of "A-ha" moments "That's what they were talking about" For me it seemed to trick my mind into thinking I was recalling something, not learning something new. Thats my one big tip.

After you read the PDF print it out and have it with you when you need to recall things for the test.

One unit a day and in 21 days you'll be writing a review here as well. :-)

What would you improve about this program?
The tutors, I must admit they didn't "feel" warm when asking a questions. and in my case, the question I asked was sort of answered with a question, obviously designed to make me think, however I had already done that before I smashed out an enal to the tutor.

Having been involved in teaching English for a few years, I did a 120-hour TESOL course to deal with my problems. Should I talk about the productivity of the course, it has absolutely been amazing and efficient for me as it could cover most of my questions and concerns over both teaching strategies and class management while it was motivational and fun to follow the lessons. The topics and problems are structured and written in a comprehensive and organized way. In terms of teaching styles and plans as well as grammar, there is quite a rich diversity of information. The staff and tutors are always available, supportive and reply fast, they are very patient and polite. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and I will keep you posted with the post-course progress. I recommend ITTT as the most cost-effective course ever to everyone. I appreciate your invaluable service!

What would you improve about this program?
I wish we had been provided with an opportunity for demo via connecting with kindergartens, schools or training centers.

Alumni Interviews

Md. Mahfujar Rahman

He is an ITTT graduate and a teacher from Bangladesh. He has been teaching English there for about 5 years.

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.

John Coan

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

I’m John and I’m the head trainer. I’ve been teaching English for over 20 years, mostly here in Prague.

What makes Prague a unique destination to obtain a TEFL Certification?

Prague is a very beautiful city – most visitors fall in love with the place. Everything is still reasonably priced, so your money will go a lot further here than in, say, Paris or London. It’s also very nicely located – you can be in Berlin, Vienna, or Budapest in just a few hours. It’s also helpful that there are a lot of language schools in Prague, so your employment options are greater than in many other European cities.

We are proud of our course. We’re dedicated teacher trainers who have spent many years working in the field. Over the four weeks, you will gain vital skills and knowledge, and we will make sure that every trainee benefits as much as they can, both through classroom input sessions and individual guidance.

We have an excellent library and you will have the chance to use this to help plan your lessons. You will also have the opportunity to teach young learners on the course – practical and rewarding experience that in fact many courses of this type do not offer.

What are some extracurricular activities students participate in during this course? (Does your training centre offer any guided tours?)

We have a very friendly staff who will help organize outings for the trainees, depending on their interests. Typically people who take the course want to see the city and guided tours are often planned early in the course. There will be trips to Czech restaurants and pubs, too, and we can help you plan a visit to the opera, Prague Castle, or the famous Black Light Theatre.

Please bear in mind however that as the course is intensive in nature, you will not have a great deal of free time during the four weeks of study.

Do students generally stay in Prague to teach after completing this course? (How does this course help students teach abroad? What are some other popular destinations?)

It really depends on the individual. Some trainees want to go back home to think about their next move, and some can’t stand to leave Prague once the course is over! Whatever you decide to do, we can help and advise.

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

I would advise someone to think carefully about whether they want to teach English to foreigners. If they have the desire and a bit of talent in that area, then we will do our very best to help develop this, and give them the tools they need to do a very good job in the classroom.
