Amazing course! super complete, dynamic and professional. It covers every possible scenario of teaching, problems you might encounter, types of students, different teaching methods, etc. It gives you great up-to-date tools to provide outstanding teaching.
I truly believe that the course covers absolutely everything you need to know about teaching. I would totally recommend it to people looking for superb on-line training. I was impressed by how well explained everything was and how every single detail was covered. Although there were many things that I had already studied, the ITTT course showed me a different perspective to it, it gave me new and fresh ideas on how to teach the difficult areas of the English language.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Nothing! I truly believe that the course covers absolutely everything you need to know about teaching.

I have just completed the 120-hour course. The site is user-friendly and the course is quite comprehensive. You will observe that the units were written by experts. The exams really test your understanding and the summative task is challenging and somehow makes you proud once done. There are a lot of cheaper alternatives to ITTT but this is legit and accredited world-wide, so it's worth every penny. I'll certainly become more confident in teaching English. Overall, I am satisfied with my TEFL course at ITTT.

I have recently completed the 120 hour TEFL course offered by ITTT, and I am half way through their 50 hour course for specialising in teaching online.
I found it very clear and easy to navigate through the course content, and had no issues accessing the units or videos.
I did struggle with some of the grammar units and do wish a little more explanation was included for some of the more difficult concepts.
Otherwise I am very satisfied with what I’ve learnt so far from these courses, and am very impressed with the amount of additional information via external links that has been provided, especially with relation to finding jobs.
A little advice for others considering these courses, would be to pace yourself and try to work on the course regularly. I started mine during lockdown when I had plenty of free time, then became busy with work and travel, and found myself rushing at the end to complete everything before the six months was up.
In conclusion, I highly recommend the course and ITTT.

Taking this course has enabled me to work abroad in a language school for over 8 years and is now enabling me to be my own boss and work online via a language teaching/learning website. It provided me with the information and tools that I needed in order to feel confident enough to pursue a career in a field that I am passionate about. I was a complete novice and had little to no knowledge of the theory or practical side of teaching English as a foreign language but the course was extremely informative and gave me all I needed to know to begin my career and take my first steps towards being an experienced teacher.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve-racking thing for me was when I had completed my course and began my job as a teacher. Standing up in front of a class of students for the first time isn't the same as planning and preparing but remembering everything I had learnt during the course got me through it and I am still teaching, more than 8 years later.

Great course! The way the course is organized, I feel like I fully learned and interalized all the information presented. The course takes you from the first day of class to the last covering everything in between to include: student level and diagnostic testing, how to create a syllabus, and lesson plans, a review of grammar and tenses necessary for teaching ESL students, teaching methodolgies, teacher roles, what to expect from your students, how to evaluate your students and your class for improvements, as well as proffesional development. This course includes sample placement and diagnostic tests and many sample activities.

Response from ITTT TEFL

Thank you so much for the excellent rating, Sherri! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the course with us and that you took a lot away from it. All the best to you!

Md. Mahfujar Rahman

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.
