Questions & Answers

Hi there, I would recommend 120 Hours-ITTT or TEFL if you're looking to teach English for non-English speaking people. Most schools or Language teaching centers request a TEFL certificate. Best wishes and have a great day.

I'm not sure if there is a different certificate required to teach English in Greece but I do know the certification I have is called the TEFL certificate (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). Maybe that's what the person will need to teach English there, in addition to other documents.

We help all of our ITTT graduates to find EFL teaching positions around the world and online. Our staff are available to all course graduates and will work to ensure that they get a job in the location of their choice. Jobs are plentiful, all of our graduates can expect to receive multiple job offers upon completion of the course. Feel free to check out our job section: https://www.teflcourse.net...

Hi Anna, please contact the ITTT admin staff at any time in the future if you would like some assistance finding employers and available teaching positions. .

ITTT Online TEFL

Hi. My name is Herman Tembo from Zimbabwe. I am an ICT professional, single and 41. I recently got bitten by the travel bug. So I figured what better way to do it than to switch to a career that allows for that sort of thing and yet also gives me an opportunity to impact others positively. That’s ESL Teaching of course! I decided to do it right the first time by getting TEFL certified by the best. So as of Feb 2019, I am TEFL Certified by ITTT through their online course. The course material and content was thorough and up to standard. The resources and support during and after the course are second to none; not to mention the wide range of courses to select from and unbeatable rates. To top it off, you get access to lesson plans and other cool platforms. I have no qualms about doing my next course with them and won’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants to start off well as an ESL Teacher or to further their studies.

Astounding support and course planning! 🌟

It was an amazing journey completing the 120 hour online TEFL course with ITTT. With well defined instructions and assistance, the course was actually a success!
I found lessons to be perfectly designed in such a way that it keeps the learners interested throughout the course. And when talking about the support system, I couldn’t be more impressed! Apart of FAQs and details, online support is also very effective and quick in assisting all types of queries and doubts. Which helped me in completing the course successfully in a short period of time, that too with a score of 93% . Inspite of having teaching experience in abroad, I learned so many teaching skills and techniques that I wasn’t aware of. So, I am actually happy that I opted this course! And I look forward to a brighter and fun filled teaching journey!

It was an excellent online course

I chose the ITTT 220-hour online Master Package course, which includes the 120-hour TEFL Certification Course, 50-hour course in Business English as well as as 50-hour course in teaching English to young learners. It was a wonderful course which provided me with remarkable knowledge in regards to English teaching, methods, materials and techniques. It was aslo a great balance between the knowledge I had already had and new ideas. All materials were very clear, precise and eye-opening and as a non-professional English teacher, I believe this course greatly inspired me and urged me to embark smoothly on my adventure. Besides this, I would like to stress the assistance I received by the staff whenever I faced some difficulties along the course. I highly reccommend it to everyone!

What would you improve about this program?
I believe that you could add a few more videos to make the course more attractive as we anyway lose the opportunity of the interactive part of the teaching.
Response from ITTT TEFL

Great review Eleana!

Thanks for your summary and recommendation of the 220-hour Master package.

Your comments on adding additional videos is being addressed. Our staff are creating some additional videos that we hope to add to the online courses in the coming weeks.

All the best with your teaching plans. Please contact us at any time if you require any assistance.

Challenging and Fun TEFL Course.

Completing ITTT online TEFL course was challenging and fun! The structure of the course and that it was available online, gave me the flexibility that I needed to get my certification. The staff have been helpful, answering my queries almost immediately and the course has provided me with more information than I could have hoped for. Although I was initially, frightened of the grammar lessons, having remembered all those gruesome hours of endless grammar rules in the classroom, I was surprised and extremely happy to see that there are fun, enagaging ways to teach grammar. I was also fascinated by the lesson on phonetics and the phonetic alphabet. Links to infomation, material and content are given throughout the course, which has been extremely helpfull. The information I gained from the course was incredible value for money.

What would you improve about this program?
The video material became a little monotonous sometimes, however the videos which showed actual classroom situations were fascinating. More videos with that type of material, showing actual classrooms, with classes taking place, would be great.

ITTT 120 hour online course

It took me six months to finish the course at a leisurely pace ,even though I was quite caught up with finishing it in the end . It was quite informative and instructive. I am happy that I have done this course as the teaching methods were quite interesting and recreational as well as being educational and enlightening . I've had the chance to exploit on the methods in English class and it had been embraced by my students . The warm up techniques and making the classes more student centered via the different activities make a difference when eliciting interest.

Highly recommended

Moving to Asia was the best decision I could have ever made. I decided to move to Taiwan from Peru in 2005 and, 13 years later, I am still here. I learned how to teach by observing other teachers in action. Later on I added my own flavor to all I could absorb from said teachers. However this wasn’t enough. I needed the credentials o back up my experience. I must admit that it took me a minute but hey, they say better late than never right?I took the 120 hrs online TEFL program for I had the experience but not the credentials to back them up. I must say that I am very pleased with the lessons content and how they are presented.
I would recommend this program to anyone interested in getting proper TEFL or TESOL certifications.

An Open Door to the Future

I took the ITTT course to advance my life, to press towards a vision I had of myself in the future. My end goal and vision for taking the course was to use English teaching as an opportunity to be self-employed and teach in any country of my choice, to possess my work. I could not have afforded the course on my own, so I used it as a bargaining chip with a prospective employer. In our negotiation for my salary at the school, I added in the cost of furthering my education to teach ESL courses in order to connect with the potential Latin demographic at the school, I would get the job and become the school's Ambassador and teach elective courses. The course not only provided me with the tools necessary to teach my electives when I worked in traditional education it also gave me the independence I desired and envisioned to teach remotely. I now teach English as a Second Language online and I live in Bogota, Colombia. I get to teach students from all around the world and live my dream of being a global citizen while pursuing international business.

The course gave me the confidence to start teaching online, and with this confidence I was able to take the risk of living abroad and being sustained by teaching. For this, I say the course is worth taking, it can provide exponential benefits if you're willing to put it utilize the tools they provide. I loved that there were videos for every Lesson as well as a printable PDF texts I could save and refer back to anytime I needed. The course is full of practical examples, worksheets, and teaching tools to help you start teaching ESL classes immediately. This course has forever changed my life and I hope to gift younger students with this course to hep them create future opportunities for themselves.

What would you improve about this program?
This course should provide access to their video library for students who have completed the course. Also a less expensive certificate process would be nice.

Excellent service, could use some support improvements

I took the 120-hour coursework and found the units to be simple and easy to digest, with both familiar and new information. It was a nice recap for the bits of information that I was already aware of and an eye opener for the information that was new to me. Having access to the Units should I ever need to go back to them is a lifesaver and a great tool. Overall my experience was pleasant and I could work on my own time during the weekends when I wasn't working. One of the things I most enjoyed out of the course was finding ways to implement some piece of information or new class activity into my day to day classes. I often found the resources found in several Unit chapters to be helpful and a fun way to break up the pace of the classroom. The only thing I would say could improve could be in its human element. I once had a question about the end of course lesson plan. Specifically sections of the lesson plan that had confused me considering it was hypothetical. (Like time and supervisor.) I wanted to be sure that there wasn't some required information that had to be filled in these sections that I might have missed so I asked the customer service about my doubt and was dryly responded with nothing except that I needed to purchase the specific lesson plan support service for my question to be answered. Another bit of friction came when I actually sent the lesson plan. My response listed several mistakes I had made and had to improve upon, but if I'm honest a lot of the recommendations were already in my original lesson plan. It seemed to me that I had to dumb down the lesson plan in order for it to be considered "correct". But besides these singular events, I would recommend the program to anyone who wishes to acquire a TEFL or TESOL certificate.

What would you improve about this program?
As mentioned above my biggest problem was the human interaction with the program. So I suppose some employee assessment would help.
Response from ITTT TEFL

Hi Gabriel, thanks for constructive comments and your recommendation of our online courses.

The 120-hour online TEFL/TESOL course no longer has the final lesson planning task. The course now has a 500 word written summative task that gives trainees the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and the TEFL trainers a chance to provide them with some guidance.

All the best with your teaching career. Please contact us at any time if you require any assistance.

Happy with my online ITTT 120-Hour TEFL course. Worth it indeed.

I have completed the online ITTT 120-Hour TEFL course with videos and tutor support. This much I will say, what really impressed me was the lesson methodology from ITTT. I have seen this in action but not in this method, can't wait to try it out now. My only little qualm is after the course, I received my result confirmation, my tutor's comment/advice and the next steps to take... For which I'm truly grateful thank you. However, say for instance I (the teacher) love the content illustrations on the video units and would like to find the whereabouts of this content, I battled. Do you know? I've browsed around the web for sometime now to get my hands on what I consider great illustrations or even for similar ones to no avail he! he! But otherwise I am truly satisfied with this course. Well presented throughout in moderately easy English to comprehend and implement. Thank you again.

What would you improve about this program?
Perhaps a member's only ITTT teacher's hub/or forum could be present? We could share ideas, questions and answers, tips, content, etc. But I'm sure this has been requested 'umpty' times already and there'a a perfectly good reasons for not having it up. But hey?! Just trying ;-)

Hi Isabel,

Thanks for taking the time to submit a review of our 120-hour online course.

We have added a lot of useful videos to our youtube channel in the last year including some videos of experienced TEFL trainers explaining many of the elements from the course. Here's a clip form unit 1- https://youtu.be/DgDwFctFb5w

An experience that lasts for a lifetime

I completed the 100 hour TEFL course in 2009. It was a unique experience for me because I had the chance to work with a very experienced tutor. It was my first course for improving my working skills as a teacher who teaches English as a foreign language. At first I could not compare it with other courses since it was my first. But later after a few teacher training courses taken in my country, Macedonia, I realized that I definitely need the ITTT TEFL course. It was an online course. There are certain advantages to online training. Firstly, you can work from your home so there are no travelling expenses. Secondly, the working schedule is flexible. You receive an e-mail with materials and instructions and respond with the assignments in your free time. The course itself was very helpful. It covered a lot of topics like classroom management, teaching skills, language awareness, phonology, lesson observation and course materials analysis. It was my first year working as an English teacher when I started the course. It took me three months to complete the course. One of the best things was that I could apply into practice everything I was learning. I noticed how my teaching methods slowly started to change for the better. I became more confident and relaxed. The students, aged six to eighteen, enjoyed their lessons. The good thing about this course is that everything that you learn stays with you. It is present in your practice, when in the classroom, when preparing lessons, basically everywhere all the time. It is not something that you forget. The tutor was very helpful. He was assisting me in every way possible. My favourite part was when I had to make a lesson plan. The tutor did not agree with some of my ideas and he explained why, so I had to make a new one paying more attention to warm up exercises. In the end, of course, I did it well. I would highly recommend the ITTT TEFL course to other teachers. It is an experience that lasts for a lifetime.

ITTT Online TEFL Course

This course was an essential addition to my resume and paired nicely with all of my teaching experience. I took this course in order to build my skill set for a new ESL teaching opportunity I was going to start. I do have a teaching degree as well, so some of the concepts were not new but I was able to receive specific instruction about teaching students learning English as an additional language. The cost of the program was wonderful and my TEFL certification has been valuable with many other teaching experiences I have had after taking this course.

What would you improve about this program?
I did have a teaching position lined up after this course so it was not a big concern for me but one improvement I would make would be to provide more support or a network for people so they can look at teaching positions that are available. This would have been beneficial for me if I did not have a teaching position after the course.

Good program as a start

I did the TESOL 100 hour course with tutor support. The tutor assigned to me was actually really good at giving feedback in a timely fashion and helped out in areas where I needed it. This was about 8 years ago. Thereafter I took the opportunity to do a Business TEFL as well as a Young Learners TEFL with the same company and those have not really helped too much in getting a job. Furthermore it would have been much more worthwhile had the ITTT company themselves helped guide me in the right direction once I was done with the course of getting placements at different jobs where it was easier for a person with South African Citizenship could apply. This is an area that needs a great amount of work on as the adverts that they do send out periodically are all focussed mainly on people who have a UK or USA citizenship and not other native English Speaking countries such as South Africa.

What would you improve about this program?
See comments in my review of the course.
Response from ITTT TEFL

Hi Michael, thanks for reviewing the 100-hour online course.

8 years certainly is a long time. We have since added some extra content and upgraded to a 120-hour TEFL/TESOL course split across 20 course modules.

The newer course is much more user-friendly. There are regular online exams instead of the old worksheet assessments. This allows trainees to flow through the course modules without having to wait for sheets to be marked.

I've passed on your comments regarding job guidance. The information in our regular newsletters isn't specific to any one nation. Please contact our admin staff directly if you require assistance finding employers and jobs. We will be happy to help.

Eye-Opening

I did not find the program to be particularly difficult. It was straight forward with the readings and quizzes. It had some good ideas and suggestions, but the main impact it had on me was pointing out the areas in which I needed a refresher. I have not had an English class in quite a while and had to brush up on some terminology, rules, and exceptions to the rules. As a native speaker, I can usually use the "that sounds about right" method. However, I wanted to be able to explain (to the best of my ability) to my students how to figure out to correctly speak/write in English for when I am not there to correct them.
I was glad that I was able to keep the PDFs of the material to go over when I am doing my lesson planning. I also appreciated the reminder to keep things fun, simple, and varied. Overall, a good course which helped me get a teaching job in South Korea.

220-Hour Master Package including CTBE and CTEYL-with tutor support

I have just completed the CTBE and CTEYL courses in the 220-Hour Master Package. This was just the right course for me because of the flexible hours and I would definitely recommend it to everybody who needs a flexible schedule. It can be done before or after and work and the tutors really help a lot when needed and answering time is also short!
Though I had experience in teaching, this course also helped me while teaching German and Spanish.
I chose this course as CTBE and CTEYL were included and it was definitely worth the price!

What would you improve about this program?
There could be more examples of lesson plans in the general English Part (the 120 hour course)
Though in the CTBE they were already included!

The course you can trust

As I searched intensively for a good TEFL course ,for about six months before opting for this course, now I feel that I made the best choice, no regrets at all . As I am already working as a language Trainer, during my training sessions conducted exclusively for adults, I always need to include some engaging activities, which have been made possible through this course only. Now I don't have to spend hours thinking and designing them. Moreover, detailed description on grammar, problems encountered during classes, ways to address them are a real asset for a trainer. Although, I cannot make any comparisons with other TEFL courses, since I haven't done them, but there is nothing that I can mark is lacking in this course. However, one or two more videos can be added to the course (that is without videos and tutor) for showcasing a more practical experience. I would like to thank the team for this great course.

What would you improve about this program?
More details about activities should be included
