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.
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. .

Online TEFL

I really enjoyed going through and completing this online program. It was very enriching and it provided a lot of useful tips and resources to make me a better instructor. When I started it I had never taught a lesson before but after I was done I felt much more comfortable with my abilities in doing so. IT has helped me not only with English but also with German and Spanish lessons. I am very grateful and would definitely recommend ITTT online to colleagues.

What would you improve about this program?
I did the option with the videos as well as I think those were wonderful tools. Some of the material was made more clear after watching the videos and not only doing the readings so keep it up!

ITTT Online TEFL course

The course was perfect for what I was looking for - flexible online course which gives me a recognized high quality qualification. I now feel confident to apply for TEFL jobs in Myanmar. The course material was challenging enough, but not too difficult. I appreciated the support we received to complete our lesson plans as part of the final evaluation. I think this is a good way to test if we can apply what we have learnt in the course.

ITTT Online TEFL Course Review (CTEYL)

ITTT is a great TEFL Course provider. I recommended this company to many of my friends who are also based in Vietnam. I was not an education degree graduate but was privileged to land a job in a preschool here in Vietnam. I equip myself about teaching strategies through self-study and taking online TEFL courses. I bumped into ITTT while researching for TEFL Course providers and saw that it earned lots of great reviews from its previous students.

I learned a lot of things from the course, including lesson planning and classroom management. The lessons were challenging. One who's taking up the course, really needs to study and not take things lightly because a passing grade has to be fulfilled within a given period of time or else one has to retake the course.

There are a lot of TEFL Courses to choose from depending on one's needs. You may also opt to fully take a course online, in class or a combination of online and in-class. Their customer service reps and tutors are prompt in answering queries.

Beginner Experience

My name is Brittni and I have always wanted to be a teacher since I was very young. As an adult, I managed to make my way overseas for a vacation for myself to see and experience the culture that I found myself at home with. Spending a month in South Korea and in various locations in Japan, I found myself wanting to combine my dream of teaching and living overseas. While doing research on the possibilities of both, I discovered ITTT online TEFL course.
I looked at reviews and the different options of courses, and man was it a little overwhelming. Trying to figure out which route was best for me. At the time there was a deal and I was able to do 3 courses for under $300, which would just make me more marketable when job hunting. I finished the main course and now working to complete the last two before the end of the year. I have learned so much to better myself as a teacher. Better approaches, better-thinking strategies, anticipating problems that might occur, and even new looks at setting up lessons plans. The courses even provide information and guides that you can print out and use if you would like. This benefit made it very relaxing and less stressful as the thought of teaching overseas came to mind. This was the first time I did any school work online as I am used to being in a classroom learning. The new environment was different but ITTT made it very comfortable for the learner and made it to where it goes to the pace of the learning.
As my courses come to a close I will be job hunting and have started reading reviews of others who have taken the course and made it to their locations of interest. I have not run across any reviewer that any negative thoughts about where they were or experiences they have encountered. Reading nothing but positive and motivating reviews drive me to be the next awesome one as well. I hope this review helps push others to try something new and expand new adventures.

What would you improve about this program?
I would make the contact a tutor like an online chat communication instead of just an email submission. Just so the learner can get help as soon as they can to prevent any frustration.

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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.....

What would you improve about this program?
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!

What would you improve about this program?
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 .

What would you improve about this program?
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!

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.
