I took the 120 hour online tefl course with no tutor support

I found the course pretty convenient and easy, it covered most of the major grammer points in the English language in a clear yet detailed approach and it included quite usufel information about how to deal with different cultures, age groups and language command levels inside a classroom along with how to make the classroom a fun and entertaining teaching enviroment through using various activities rather than just a usual boring language class. The online system throughwhich i studied and filled in my tests was very convenient, clear and had no techincal issues. The lesson plan was a practical implementation of all the knowledge gained during the course and it's feedback was constructive and clear.

How can this program be improved?
I could be further imporved through including more tricky and indirect questions in the tests.

120 hours course

I have only good words to say about my tutor and TTT's staff. Both, have replied to me in less than 24 hours by e-mail. As far as the course is concern, despite its simplicity, it's a very logical, concise and enjoyable program for any non-native English speaker, considering a teaching career. I highly recommend this course! ... Sebastian.

250hours TESOL course on line

Hi,
I found this course quite helpful and as good as many others which where not offered on line but with tutor. Studying at my own peace is what have made it possible for me to keep studying.
The experience has been great and really interesting. So much that I did the young learners course too and I am considering to take the business one in order to complete the specialisations.
Thanks for your support and guidance.
Sincerely
Julia

More examples when reading through the theory would be of a great help.

Ittt 120 hour course

I enjoyed learning the information in the course. I was surprised how detailed the work is and how much we need to know to teach English as a second language. The first few units took much longer to study but then they became much easier. i found the videos very helpful and would definitely recommend choosing the course with videos. I had a tutor also but did not use the tutor. The course took about 5 months but that was leaving a lot of time in between. I could have done it a lot quicker. Each unit is well structured and the way they are sequenced gives variety and interest to the course.

How can this program be improved?
I was unaware of having to plan a lesson as the last requirement and thought I had finished after completing the last test. Being informed of this would have been helpful.

120 hrs course

Having a busy life this course was ideal for me, being able to do the lessons during the spare time I had. I struggeld with the grammer but the information given was clear (my brain was not always!) I now have more confidence in teaching english and hope to start within a few months in China.

How can this program be improved?
That is difficult to say, but.....it is all theoretical. Would be good to one or two lessons in front of a classroom. But I realise that it is not easy for you to realise.

Do not waste your money!!!!

I have nothing nice to say about this course. I signed up for the 120 hour course with a tutor and was promised an additional free young learners course. The course suggested each unit should take 5hours and a total of 20 units. I skimmed the first unit and realized it was a joke. I completed all 20 units in a week with a 99% and did not read any of the material. The material was common sense for anyone who has ever set foot in any classroom. On top of this I repeatedly email tutors and never once was replied to. Finally I emailed the administration to complain and was informed they had a technical glitch. I requested a refund for the cost of the tutor and they never replied. Then I asked about the free course I was originally promised and again I was never answered. This course is a waste and they are a dishonest honest company.

Response from ITTT TEFL

We’re sorry to hear that you “have nothing nice to say about this course”.

First, please bear in mind that ITTT certificate courses are fundamentally designed for people who have little or no teaching experience.

As we explained to you via email, there was a technical problem that prevented the contact forms that you submitted reaching your course tutor, for which we apologised. At no stage during your course did you email us direct to ask why you hadn’t received a response to the tutor contact forms you had submitted. We’re unsure why you state that you didn’t receive a reply to your request for a refund, as we responded to you within four hours of your emailing us on 12th June, and you replied to that email.

You have since received the complimentary course in teaching English to young learners.

It’s disappointing that your experience with ITTT was far from ideal, but we feel that the other reviews here are a more genuine reflection of the feelings of past course participants.

We wish you all the best for the future.

120 hour course

I took two months on this course and I found it awesome! Right from the fares charged to the course materials and guidance given. I already had an experience of teaching other subjects, but the ittt course has added quite a lot in my teaching. The explanations given in each course unit are direct and self explanatory, that I suppose that even if you've never taught before, you can easily learn because the content is so direct. I gained so much from the teaching methods given, and the way of classroom controlling. The ideas I have got from this course have helped me so much in handling my classes, both the TEFL and social studies classes.
I all along thought that I teaching English as a foreign language was a walk over since I am a native English speaker, but the challenges I was brought in light about were completely spectacular. I knew how to teach tenses, but I couldn't fully explain the usage of such tenses. Thanks God I was able to learn from the program and I am now teaching English with confidence, and very ready to give a firm explanation if a student had a problem.
The online tutor was helpful in responding and the quality of the response was satisfactory.
The lesson planning part was so good that it really prepares one for the field.

How can this program be improved?
The inclusion of other parts of English like comprehension and summary writing other than just focusing on grammar writing could also be beneficial to students in this program as it could have been to me.

Very motivating and affordable course, immediate and helpful support.

I've done the 120-hour online TEFL course and I've been very happy with it. I've studied Languages and I have four years of teaching experience, thus the course did not surprise me with the level of difficulty. It took me only 2 weeks to complete it.
Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed the units focused on teaching, class management etc. It was really nice to get back on track with all that knowledge after a 2-year break in teaching. I particularly liked writing lesson plans as the self-evaluation tasks.
Moreover, whenever I had a problem, the reaction on the support center side was immediate and very helpful. ITTT provides you with a lot of additional materials and some nice surprises at the end of the course. That was definitely a pleasant and unexpected bonus.
My only worry is the recognition given to this course. CELTA seems to be the first preference among all the employers and I will surely do it at some point in the future. However, TEFL from ITTT is a much cheaper option and it prepares you rather well to become a teacher, especially if you have previous teaching/linguistic preparation. It puts you on the ELT market and serves as and incentive to continue learning (CELTA next!).

Young Learner Course Review

I found the course fairly easy and a bit of a review since I have already been teaching in South Korea for the last 3+ years. But always useful are the tips and information on lesson planning and classroom control.

Even though I have prior international ESL teaching experience, I gained more knowledge from this course in how to become a better teacher for the young learners I have taught & continue to teach.

Learned a lot but worried about recognition

I did the 120h course with ITTT. I learned a lot and found it very motivating. But I am not sure I would choose this school again because I am worried about the course recognition. I maybe should have signed up to a course with the British embassy or from a recognized university.

It is still really worth it if recognition of the certificate is not an issue for you.

ITTT 120 Hour With Tutor Support and Videos Review

I would recommend this course to anyone interested in teaching English as a foreign language. The course content was relevant and it covered important aspects of teaching.

I learned a great deal. There were some things I knew and some I didn't have a clue about. Overall it was an invaluable experience.

The tutor support was great also.

How can this program be improved?
I didn't particularly like the videos, I thought them boring. The logo was big and blocked some of the content as times.

ITTT 120 Hour With Tutor Support and Videos Review

Let me start by saying that this is the first online course that I have attempted so I can't really comment on how this course stacks up against others out there. I can only speak from my own experience of the course.

I would have no problem recommending this course to anyone interested in getting involved in TEFL/TESOL. I found the course easy to use, with a clear layout and a simple, clean interface.

The content provided was a lot more detailed than I was expecting it to be. I found the difficulty of the course to be just about right for myself. Its never too challenging for a lay person to understand but its also never too simple either. I can imagine there being much harder courses out there for those looking for something more difficult.

The course also offered tutor support that I only really needed to use once. The response I received from the tutor was prompt and detailed.

There's is plenty of time (6 months) for you to complete the course. This gives you more than enough time to take it slow, absorb what you're learning and not feel pressured into rushing through the course.

At the end of the course you have to submit a lesson plan which they say will be graded within two days. I received confirmation that I had passed within 24 hours.

The cost of course was about $350 which I found to be fair. Not exactly a bargain but not too expensive either. I guess its a small investment you can make in yourself that could get you the teaching job you want.

How can this program be improved?
One criticism I would have is that the course only allows you access to some of the content and the rest is unlocked gradually as you complete the units in the course. I can understand why the course is designed this way but the reason I didn't like it was because on two occasions, the next units I needed to complete, did not open as they should have when I had completed the previous units. This was annoying and I had to contact their tech support by email to get it fixed twice. In their defense, they did fix the problem for me quickly ( within a few hours ).

Systematized learning

The 120 hr course perfectly cater to the needs of people who have teaching background and even those who have flair for teaching. Excellent course material has helped me to improve my teaching skills. My students always enjoy games suggested in unit 12. I recommend to my friends to go with this comprehensive program.

I would like to suggest to upgrade certain videos.

Very helpful

I have taken the 120 hr TESOL/TEFL certificate course + tutor support at ITTT and I am very pleased with it.

Well-organized lessons, good material, helpful videos and great tutoring when needed.

I highly recommend everyone who wants to get started a teaching career.

How can this program be improved?
I would change some videos recording. In some of them the quality of the image is quite poor or the sound recorded is not good enough to listen to.

Would highly recommend this course!

I took this course in 5 weeks, while maintaining a lot of other responsibilities. I learned some really good, important basics and appreciated the flexibility and simplicity of this course. It was well worth my time. While it may not teach as much as if you were in the classroom, it is great as far as online courses go.

How can this program be improved?
I can't think of anything right off the top of my head.
