I did the 120 hour TEFL course + CTBE S and this course has given me nothing more than knowledge! It was very interesting and helpful from start to finish and I strongly recommend it to early career teachers! I promise you, you will feel so much more confident than before! And also for anyone who wishes to have a clearer view of the art of teaching. The materials and resources are excellent; they are a great addition to your classes. Highly recommendable! 10/10! I am extremely satisfied!!!!!!!!!!!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I had 6 months to do it, but due to laziness and personal problems, I had to rush through it. So If I could go back, I would take my time to study all the lessons more thoroughly!

I have just completed a 120-hour TEFL course and I am satisfied with this experience. I can say that I enjoyed ITTT online course. Firstly, it was very convenient for me, because I have a part-time job. Secondly, it is easy to navigate within the system. Here you can study Units one by one. The following Unit opens as soon as you finish the Test and you can do several Units per day (its good when you have a day-off). Finally, the course itself is well structured with many teaching ideas/tips and useful examples. For some topics, the common troubles are listed with possible ways of solving them, which I found rather useful. In my opinion, tests weren’t that difficult, however, sometimes they required knowledge of previous Units. For me it was important to include phone number on the post address and after my request, I got an immediate answer that it was done (special thanks!). My certificate is on the way and, in addition, I gained some knowledge, so I am satisfied with my choice.

What would you improve about this program?
I am satisfied with this ITTT online course, but videos in the Unit 10 might be a bit longer to cover more examples. Anyway, videos are good, it’s easy to ‘see the difference’.

You do you have to make sure you have time and concentration as the programme is tough in terms of material to go through. You do need to make sure that you have 4 weeks to fully concentrate. Combining holiday and this course is not advisable. Making the lesson plans is really good to understand the flow of the CLT method. Also, an excellent opportunity to perform teacher practice. This is the key to success. In advance really do study grammar already as like many people I barely remembered any grammar and it is necessary to be able to support students on this journey as well as speaking.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Within 2 days into the course the classroom is yours. But with the excellent support you just have to do it.

I stressed for about a week, maybe more, trying to find a good place to get my certificate. TEFL accreditation is not regulated like universities are, so a lot of cheap places are just certificate mills that don't really teach you anything. I paid extra to get the videos and I highly recommend doing that! The videos were well-made and worth the extra dough! The course isn't too difficult and can be done in a couple of weeks if you knuckle down. It's also great quality and teaches you a lot about ESL! Highly recommend.

What would you improve about this program?
I would make sure the video covered all of the content. There were times that sections in the unit were not covered in the video.

If you plan to teach English in a foreign country I recommend doing a TEFL course. The 120 hr TEFL course has all the ingredients needed to get you started in the world of ESL. ITTT caters to all audience when it comes to taking the course. I am very busy so I opted for the online course without tutor and videos. I worked at my own pace and own time. Do not fear, the site is easy to navigate and user-friendly. As native English speakers we often take certain things for granted but ITTT taught me differently and now I have a different perspective. Thumbs up ITTT!!!!!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
The most surprising thing I saw was the penis festival.

I have been teaching English for quite a long in Bangladesh. I didn't take any professional course previously. That's the reason I was looking for one that would be flexible for me and well designed to develop my skills further. I think this course has been great for me. I learned a lot. What fascinated me most is the support I received from ITTT. They offered me a free course after the successful completion of TEFL. Besides, whenever I asked anything, I always found their cordial response with utmost promtnes. The most thought-provoking part in this course is ESA: engage, study and activate. I feel that some video lessons could be included to show more examples of how ESA lessons are planned and implemented. Overall, this course is very helpful and eye-opening.

What would you improve about this program?
Inclusion of some other videos on ESA would be much more helpful.

I have chosen to take this course since I will be going abroad next year and my plan is to continue working as an english teacher. Searching for job postings abroad, I found out that the TEFL/TESOL course was a requirement in most of the jobs adverts. So I did some research on the options available for this course. The online course was my preferred choice since I could do it from home at my own pace and it was perfect for me. I was able to continue with my duties and in the free time dedicate time to do the course. I completed it in less than 4 months, and the timeframe given was up to 6 months. I liked the way the course is set up is. You learn about a topic in each of the units and after that you were required to take a test and it was pretty encouraging to do it this way. You could save the unit lesson to your computer for a future reference or to review the info before going into the test. In my case, some units were easier than others and some of them were very challenging, for instance the phonetics unit was tough for me . I have been working as an english teacher for some years now so I was familiar with some of the information provided but still there was always information that was very useful for me in every unit. Methodologies and resources were a great source for me , gave me so many other options to include in my lessons, and make my classes more dynamic and diverse. The videos provided in the course were very real and its a nice way to see the practical teaching ways and take advantage of it.During the course I was even able to include some of the learning information into my lessons and groups and they were very positive. I have now completed this course and I have to say it was a great investment for my career and it will definitively pay off. I do recommend this course to anyone going abroad and willing to have great content and learning as a second language english teacher.

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn or teach English, or just needs meet the requirements for a job. The time and money efficient course provides tons of useful materials and instructions that prepares you well for lecturing and facilitating activities. The final test is to write a summarize essay to provide the gist of what you have learned and reflected during the course, which is not that hard if you have taken the course seriously. After finishing the course, the administrative staff will send you an email containing useful links with advices for jobs and job banks, which will help you find a satisfactory job just by clicking your mouse. Trust me, you won’t regret your choice for this TESOL/TEFL course accredited by so many organizations.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I didn’t expect the course to be so user friendly and easy to follow. Since they have a tutor option, I thought it would be hard to understand the course without a tutor. It turned out that I was totally wrong.

The 120 hour online TEFL course was very flexible and streamlined. I was able to study and take the tests on my own time and felt a sense of accomplishment after completing each unit. At the end of each unit I was more and more excited to move on to the next and cared more about teaching than when I started. The course material really Inspired me. The website is very well made and easy to navigate. The course material was challenging yet very comprehensive at the same time. They are responsive via email and social media as well. The certificate looks very professional and the priced is shipping was included in the cost of the course. Immediately after finishing the course and following on their facebook page I was contacted about possible job opportunities. Will reccomend and rate 10 out of 10!

When I first heard about ITTT courses I was bit amazed to know if this was really possible to have such course in such affordable price, I did little more digging on its official website and things seemed really promising to me, I decided to take it , I signed up for the online course , step by step instructions were really clear and the way I was tested really pointed out my mistakes and I was motivated to study hard after each lesson been completed, the study materials of next lessons are only available after passing the test of current lesson. If anyone is willing to get authenticated TESOL certification I would say this is a great choice, also they sent the certificate in a very quick time. All in all the whole process is really worth trying.
Cheers!

What would you improve about this program?
More study materials can be added in addition and each wrong answers given in the test can be corrected with more real time examples.
