ITTT Online ESL Certification Program

I learned so much from this course. It gave very practical and helpful instruction for ESL teaching. When I finished, I felt prepared to teach and got a job shortly after teaching business ESL. I have had very positive reviews from my students and I believe that more effective teaching came be accredited from my training with this program.
Also, the program was very affordable, so I believe that I received so much for the little amount that I paid.

TEFL Online worked for me

Parts of this course seem simple when you read the unit material, when you get to the test at the end of the unit they make you pay better attention for subsequent units. I started with the 60 hours and then upgraded to the 120 hour after completing the 60. The advantage was having to write two lesson plans that were evaluated and both sent back for refinement. This is not a rubber stamp get your certificate program. It is more robust than that.

How can this program be improved?
I would not offer the 60 hour course as almost no employer accepts that. I would still keep more than one written lesson plan in the 120 course.

Expat Educator 2

The ITTT online program was an excellent fit for me while teaching overseas. Even though I came into the program with an educational background and licensure, there were new methodologies and strategies that I gained from this course. After completing the program, additional doors opened for me, in terms of job searches and countries that were interested in my skillset.

I totally recommend this course for working expat faculty and those who are considering teaching overseas, or even an ESL/ELL position in the states.

How can this program be improved?
The program is always adding new continuing education components and refresher courses to their student body (i.e. present and alumni).

Thank you!

Thank you for this opportunity to study and learn from a qualified program with interesting and useful content. In the years since I have completed my TEFOL certificate, I have continued to look back at the materials to get ideas or to give guidance. It has been a valuable resource, and I am grateful for the experience (in addition to the added benefit of being able to put it on my resume!) Overall, I learned many things from my experience during this course, but I think the most useful part was the game and activity ideas. I have referred back to these more than anything else.

How can this program be improved?
I would encourage more interaction between participants. This has pros and cons, but I think it could be a valuable resource for your online participants.

All by accident.

So I met my wife in the USA - we both worked on cruise ships. We agreed to live, I planned to retire from clinical medicine, in Chiang Rai. We bought a house and went out to celebrate with a friend. She comes out with "they have started a new medical school in Mae Fah Luang University, an English curriculum. You used to teach medical students. You should apply for the job". " what job?" " You live here. You are a physician. They must need you!"
So back to the ship for a final contract. I had prepared and left a standard CV and paper work at the university. An e-mail. An interview on my return to Thailand. And suddenly full employment as a lecturer.
Better get a teaching diploma thought I, at least then I might know what I am doing. So an online ITTT course over December and Christmas.
I found to my surprise that I enjoyed the course. Direct, practical information, not easy but again not so difficult.
So then an up to date lecturer commenced work and 5 years later.....

How can this program be improved?
I had no issues so....

First Step

After making the decision to travel for extended periods, I knew that teaching English in non-English speaking countries would be a way to finance my travels. I was in Central Africa at the time, so the online course was great. After doing some online research, I found ITTT and felt that this was the way to go. I was able to access the materials at my convenience and was able to complete the course very quickly. Their website was easy to navigate and it was a step by step program, finish one step and go to the next. Even though I had purchased the course with tutor support, I did not have to use the tutors. The teaching materials were informative and easy to understand. On completion of the course, they send the certificate very quickly.
Since that time, I have shown my certificate to all of my employer and have been continuously been employed as an English Teacher for 3 1/2 years!

How can this program be improved?
More options for a hands on training in more countries in order to "get your feet wet".

Awesome experience withOnline ITTT TEFL course

The online ITTT Tefl course has done great thing in my teaching profession. Taking the ITTT Tefl course is a great privilege and a plus to my career because it improves my skills and knowledge as an English tutor. The online training permits me to partake in the course from where I am located and at my own convenient time,even though the internet connection might be challenging in rare occasion. The content at each unit is well understood and explained .

How can this program be improved?
It can be improved by providing a mean for practical and real life tutoring to assess the overall objective of the training but I don't know how it will work with online courses .

Great Online Experience

I was slightly skeptical of doing an online program for this type of teaching and training, but was amazed at the level of instruction, guidance, and even the challenge involved! The reviews and feedback were very helpful and it helped me learn a lot from this program.

Overall, this was a great and fun learning experience. Completing the certification has allowed more doors and opportunities available to me... and that is priceless!

How can this program be improved?
I didn't have any complaints or see any need for improvement during my course.

Less Visual Aids & Pictorials

I would recommend to incorporate some of the Visual representation which really help new learner to keep everything in mind, no one can memorize so much of text. Also update course videos qualities which are incorporated, as in some videos board is not clearly. visible. Fee charges is in fact higher for an Online course, other competitors is charging half, so that should also be think upon. This is My honest feedback, I enjoyed the course with lots of learning specially ESA.... Thanks a Lot ITTT!

Krismar´s review on ITTT online course

First of all, I had been already teaching English for a year. However, I was quite improvising and not so sure what I was doing. ( I was doing conversational English on my first year)
But ITT online course provided me a theoretical and practical framework, like a compass to guide in my future´s teaching experience. I found it helping that it reminded me the parts of grammar. Furthermore, I think that the every chapter provided teaching methods and games for certain parts of speech and grammar was like a blessing for future lesson planning.
For a very busy person like me, I appreciated that I could choose my own pace to complete the course, as with everything in life we busier and more relaxed times. It was also helpful that after completing a chapter, I had to write a small summary of what I had learned.
However, I did not like the long explanation on phonetics and functions of mouth, ears and etc. I understand it is important when dealing with a language but it was too complicated and I would say not enough connected with real life that is real lessons.
I am really grateful for fast feedback to my course work that is a study plan that thoroughly analyzed my strenghts and weaknesses.

How can this program be improved?
Maybe it was my mistake but I did not find a proper page, where different options to teach abroad, are offered.

Great Course

I enjoyed the online TEFL Course by ITTT. The units were challenging and well explained. I paid for the optional tutor, which was a great help when I didn't understand something. I loved the recommended resources and creative ideas. I am currently taking another course from ITTT. It is to teaching English to young learners. After that, I will be taking the teaching business English course. So far, the teaching English to young learners has been great too.

How can this program be improved?
Opportunity to submit lesson plans and have them critiqued before the final lesson plan. Also, a few of the links to extra resources no longer existed. Maybe the course could be updated every year.

Great tool and experience!

I took the ITTT TEFL Online course before my trip to Asia and I must say it was an invaluable tool to be able to find a job and make a living.
Without this certificate, I probably wouldn't have been able to find a job so quickly. It was a great tool and due to the organization's great prestige and reputation, I was highly respected.

This certificate enabled me to stay in Asia for 2 years, then I was able to work in Italy for some time before heading to Central America. It has served me in 3 continents, and counting.

I highly recommend it to anyone interested in traveling and getting paid while you travel. I've been able to have amazing experiences, and meet great people, all because I've had this on my CV.

It has paid itself many times over, it was one of the best investments I ever made on myself.

Keep up the great work and I look forward to using my knowledge and certificate for years to come!

Good value for price

I chose this program because I wanted to do it online, quickly, and for not a lot of money. For the price, it was good value, though there could have been more support from staff as well as guidance to getting a job after the program. Some more hands-on teaching experience could've been nice but that is something to consider if doing the program online versus in a classroom. However, since it was less costly than other programs, this is what I expected and I still got my TEFL certificate which is what matters.

How can this program be improved?
More hands on work like actually teaching in class, as well as more support from staff.

Great introduction

I think that the program that ITTT offers is really wonderful. It’s not overpriced and covers a range of topics that are helpful.
They have a good mix of topics including: grammar, pronunciation, classroom tools, games, activities and parts of speech.

I think that the program is a great one for beginners and those who are starting a teaching career. It’s like a primer in a way. I think that they could have gone more in depth for certain topics, and some grammar parts are a little thin.

Overall though having a TESOL certifaction course for this price is amazing. ITTT has a wonderful presence and always post guides on jobs and possible job opportunities.

I was able to secure a Departure of State internship creating English lessons for the Islamabad embassy because of this program.
I’m hoping to teach abroad because of my certificate and my internship.

Overall very satisfied 95/100

How can this program be improved?
Increase the topics covered, for grammar and parts of speech.
Also expand into idioms, phrases & expressions.

I finally learned correct grammar!

This started with a simple desire to teach overseas. But it turned into a challenge, one I didn't think I would have a problem facing down: English grammar. I'd never had a problem using it, but could never explain the "why" of how it worked. With ITTT, not only did I have a rigorous course-load of creating lesson plans and practicing the grammar, but I also had an instructor who would not settle for anything less than my best. My course was online, so communication was in email form, but I always had my questions answered and work responded to quickly. I came out of the course prepared to use and teach grammar as I had never before been prepared. I highly recommend this course and company. Not only do they offer valuable support and learning, but they also continue to communicate with graduates post-completion, offering opportunities to work or study abroad that I otherwise would not have accessed.
