ITTT 120 HOUR ONLINE COURSE WITH TUTOR SUPPORT AND VIDEOS

I’ve never taught abroad before so I had to think hard to figure out where and how to start. There were a lot who offered TEFL courses but I chose ITTT because of the positive reviews I've seen. I chose the other 120 hour online course to get a free course in teaching Business English in result, the course has a Tutor support which I haven't really used even though it was tempting since the lessons were difficult and challenging but I didn't use it because I'm a self-learner and the videos related to the lessons were very helpful for me to the complete all the unit test. The lessons were detailed especially in how to create a good lesson plan. The course provides teaching ideas and materials that we can use for the students to make them interested in learning English.
This course is perfect for people who have little or no teaching experience like me. I had successfully completed the course last week and I'm just waiting for my certificate and the free course in Teaching Business English. It was a great experience for me as it really cleared up some of my questions & confusions about teaching English grammar and pronunciation. After completing the course, I feel prepared and confident in teaching English.

How can this program be improved?
I'm just waiting for the free course in teaching Business English as they promised in the beginning. There is nothing to change in the program instead they should add more videos similar to unit 10 lesson as it shows how the teacher uses the materials and the way of teaching students.

Finished course April 2015

I took the 120 hour online TEFL class with tutor option. The course was very flexible and I was able to do assignments at my own pace. It was very affordable and the lessons were very informative. I would HIGHLY recommend the tutor option. In the beginning I too pondered whether it would be beneficial to spend the extra money. Looking back, I don't know how I would have completed it without their assistance. They always responded via email within 1 day; despite being on the other side of the world from me.

I am a current United States citizen and I have a 4 year degree (B.S. in business). This will be my first time teaching abroad and I plan to either teach in China or Thailand. I have not yet landed a job, but this is solely due to me not being able to leave until the very end of this year. The staff has passed down numerous resources and databases of schools in both countries and I know when the time comes I will have no problem finding a job.

I am a self learner and enjoy learning at my own pace and at my own convenience. It is for these reasons that I would recommend this course to anyone.

How can this program be improved?
I think the difficulty on a couple of the lessons could have been increased. However, the lesson plan at the end requires a component from each of the lessons and is quite difficult if you did not take notes or have a tutor to correspond with. Upon completion of the lesson plan at the end I have confidence in my ability to teach English abroad.

Good course

I took the 120 hour course with tutor and video support. I found the course to be informative and interesting although a little difficult in parts. The course units flow smoothly and I felt each topic was explained in a clear way. I contacted my tutor a couple of times throughout the course and always received a quick response which was very helpful.

How can this program be improved?
I felt like some feedback on the lesson plans would have been helpful as a specific and detailed lesson plan is required at the end of the course before the course can be fully completed. My only major gripe is that I was promised a free Business English course at the end which I never received any information about.

Great Information and a guide for English teachers

Hi, everyone, I took the TESOL and TEFL training with ITT the 120 hours course and since the first material I got I had acces to a very important information for me as a teacher, for just the second Unit I had in my hands a very cleared information about the function of each word in English speech so I was thrilled. I want to say that I highly recommend this course, I learned about methodologies, strategies, techniques to apply with my students in a very well summarized material which had the necessary points to start my path as an English teacher.
Although I just have to say that I'm not a native speaker of English but I consider myself well experienced in the English field to say that, we latinamerican teachers can also travel abroad and be well ambassadors of the English language, so I was really surprised when all the requisits for teaching English abroad that promoted my course were only for native speaker, I was kind of dissapointed of that. It seems that we have to find our own way in the Teaching Abroad Path.Thank you so much for everything.

How can this program be improved?
Well I took the course with video and tutor, I would say the video part for me wasn't very necessary and sometimes would be a repetition of what's on the written units, and also I consider that student could make their own research about the subjects they're learning, so I would have prefer to have paid less for the course because the extra paid I did wasn't really necessary fo me.

TEFL 120 hours

The TEFL 120hour course is a user friendly program me and the videos are succinct and cover the main areas in sufficient depth.As a first language speaker it helped me to realize how much we take for granted.It is only when you are faced with teaching English as an additional language that you realize how difficult it is to explain concepts at this level.The course taught me a lot about the fundamentals of English that have become very rusty.The suggested activities are very helpful,varied and encourage participation by the students.

How can this program be improved?
More attention could be given to the structure and expectations of the lesson plans.More practical lesson observations showing the teaching of the difficult concepts.

Good basic beginner course

This course was very basic and great for beginners or those new to teaching. The lessons are simple and direct and easy to complete. I liked how I could complete each lesson in about an hours time. It has always been difficult for me to study online but this course made the information clear and simple. I would have liked more practical examples of lesson plans to have more practice in formulating my own or to see how others do it, as that is the biggest challenge I face.

How can this program be improved?
The videos in this program could be improved. They are not very interactive or practical, simply a review of what you have already studied. It would be great if they were examples of how to put into practice in a real classroom setting as an instructor. There were very few of those videos.

I have completed the course yesterday. I found the contents useful. Especially the practical examples. I was able to follow the lessons easily, I enjoyed the material and the fact that I could keep a copy of the units for future reference.

How can this program be improved?
More specific examples. Maybe based on different countries.
Substantial connections with job offers.

120 Hour Online Course with Tutor support

Though I am a teacher with a little experience and the course is primarily designed for people with no experience and little to no prior knowledge of language teaching, I found this course to be very comprehensive in getting someone prepared for TEFL/TESOL.
The course's quality, approach and perspective helps people like me because there are units that are great review, there are also new things to be learned and practiced, and reminders of existing weaknesses we may have. The course itself and the teaching ideas offer a solid foundation for inspiration and personal improvement. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to get started. I also recommend it to those with some language teaching experience to get some review because sometimes our work environment might channel our teaching techniques in a particular direction and make our approach less broad or flexible, and we therefore need to assess our strengths and weaknesses.

How can this program be improved?
My suggestion is similar to one I've already seen for the courses with tutor support.
The task sheets are good assignments and very relevant to their respective units. There is a lot of lesson planning required through the course, but there is no way for the student to get any feedback for their assignments and lesson plans; especially the lesson plans which are based on sample worksheet content provided as part of the study unit.
I think it would be excellent for the student if all of the task sheets could be assessed, but even two or three assessments spaced through the course would make the course better than it already is. I think more than one assessment would help to keep students motivated and on track as it would set clear time and study achievement goals, and improve iTTT's already high reputation.

Great Courses

I've completed the basic 120-hour course and the course in teaching business English. Both curriculums were excellent. This courses actually helped me in my doctoral program in adult education.

A great program!

This was an excellent program for someone who is desiring a TESOL/
TEFL certificate and has had little to no experience. The layout, organization, presentation, explanation, and examples were very well done. It was all easy to follow and complete. And the additional helps (lesson plans, connections, job searching, etc.) after completion of the course were an added plus. I have done quick of bit of TESOL teaching but never acquired a certificate. I found this course a good review and solidification, and a relatively painless way to get the certificate I desired. Thank you ITTT for a job well done.

How can this program be improved?
I would've have liked to have been able to do more than 3 lessons per day.

Business Course 50 hours

I took the Business Course after I had finished TESOL course a while ago and I wanted to continue with the same group of professionals that I had worked before so I applied for Business Course and Teaching Children. I have just finished Business, and I feel much more confident before I could start my group of Business this semester. Thank you! Looking forward to starting the next course!

It is good in its own way.

120-hour TEFL/TESOL with Video and Tutor Support

I was at first very skeptical of using an online course for TEFL training; however, the costs of classroom instruction were far out of my budget. As a native English speaker and student of foreign languages myself, I have sought teaching English as a way to help others learn the English language the way in which I have learned foreign languages. The 120-hour TEFL course offered by ITTT has been very comprehensive and often times provides cumulative knowledge from start of the course to the end. Starting from little to no knowledge of the field to completing the course, my confidence in my knowledge and ability to teach have skyrocketed, and I am very happy I chose to talk this online course.

How can this program be improved?
If there was a way to submit responses to the task sheets or at least to submit lesson plans throughout the course for feedback, this would be the perfect course. The layout of the course already facilitates learning in a well-rounded way, especially with the video instruction; however, I believe it would be very beneficial for all ITTT's students to have the option of receiving feedback steadily throughout the course on top of the tests that are already required.

120 hour course

I have been working as an English Teacher in Brazil for 14 years and one of my goals is always to do my best to keep myself up-to-date concerning teaching methods and the language itself. Then, I chose this course hoping to have some fresh ideas. I got it!
The course is well-designed, dealing with the reality we teachers face on a daily basis.
I strongly recommend it!

How can this program be improved?
Maybe, include more videos to be studied showing do's and don'ts in a classroom.

Excellent course

I enjoyed the course although I was surprised that it was more challenging than expected which is a very good thing. Online courses are often watered down and easy to complete while this one makes you think and work and you actually learn something. This course has a lot of practical applications for many of the more challenging theoretical topics. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to teach English abroad.
