ITTT Online TEFL

I took both the 120 hour TEFL & 250 hour TESOL Diploma courses. PROS: The cost is extremely affordable, course layout is convenient and do-able, staff respond to problems/questions quickly CONS: Many jobs prefer in-person courses, not much of anything for job assistance, the 250hr program had several typos/grammar errors and wasn't very professional.
Overall, taking the course can be helpful (esp if you haven&t previously taught) BUT I recommend doing an in-person course for networking, credibility, &the overall experience.

How can this program be improved?
Fix all errors, hire a professional proofreader and curriculum development staff. Provide real job support, not just a list of websites.

ITTT Online TEFL Course Evaluation

The purpose of this evaluation is to share my experience as a learner in ITTT Online TEFL Course. Hopefully, all information collected will be useful to evaluate and improve the programs on an ongoing basis.

Personally, I strongly agreed that the course increased my basic knowledge and comprehension of my skills as a TEFL teacher. So, I graded this aspect of the course fulfillment of my expectations a score of 5/5. This course improved my ability to analyze and apply information regarding the subject. I graded this aspect of the course fulfillment a score of 4/5. There were huge efforts to explain and engage me during the learning process. However, I had expected much to be taught on the practical and real-life situations of in-class assessment, monitoring and evaluate to adequately check and balance learning progress. I gained valuable skills that improved my potentials as an English tutor. Sincerely, I benefited a lot is this aspect of the course fulfillment. So, I grade it 100 percent in meeting my target goals of enrolling for the course. As regards my expectations, the course content met them up to 100 percent.

I agreed that the course content was relevant to my life outside the classroom. However, I wish its relevance and level of acceptance could cover all developing and underdeveloped countries as well. The course is rapidly booming in developed and western countries with little or no relevance and awareness in the east and similar parts of the globe. In that aspect, I graded the course 3/5 in fulfillment of this objective. The instructional materials were very appropriate for the course content. Wow! The use of the instructional materials was very excellent. It's 100 percent fulfilled. The assignments helped very well in improving my understanding. Therefore, I rated this aspect of the course fulfillment a score of 5/5. I strongly agreed that the assignments and examinations adequately tested my understanding of the course content. The course was designed with clear and reasonable assessment and evaluation procedures. Course discussions were of high quality. Though, I had expected much of peer review and peer discussion forums. The instructors promoted peer learning. However, I suggest that weekly discussion questions should be made available to enable learners discuss and share their views concerning the course contents. It will also increase students’ participation in the course. This aspect of peer interaction and discussion forum is rated 65 percent to my own evaluation point of view.

The instructors gave me valuable feedback which stimulated my intellectual enthusiasm for course content. They were also knowledgeable in their field which made the frequency of student and instructor interactions very adequate. Sincerely, I achieved the goals I had when I started this course. Therefore I strongly recommend this course to friends. All things considered, I am satisfied with my studies with ITTT Online TEFL Course. On average, my spending 19 to 25 hours per week to the course reading, assignments, participation, exam studying, and exam taking was not in vain.

Thank you,
Casmir Onyeneke

Failure to pass the exam resulting in additional $150

I find this a tad unfair given, most people taking this course are employed and are snatching time to study and pass the exam. However, little is known that when one fails, one needs to pay additional $150 to sit for a second attempt. Most prestigious known certification examination institutes offer the 2nd attempt for free. something to consider!
Overall good course content with supporting videos and options available for download (offline study).

Fantastic course

Overall great, easy and worth every dollar. Lessons are really well written and require minimum effort from the reader. Throughout the lessons you will find several examples that will assist putting it all together and give you a better perspective on the topic at hand. Tests are really well grounded and manage to not feel intimidating but at the same time they remain challenging enough as of to provide a sense of accomplishment. This has been a fantastic experience and I am definitely looking forward to taking another course.

I really enjoyed this course.

This online TEFL certification course from ITTT was really great! The things I learned have proved to be useful as I moved overseas to teach English. I have already been recommending this course to others.
I have been tutoring English online, and obtaining this certificate has given me a useful credential to show my students. I'm very thankful for this course, and I still carry the lessons around with me on my laptop and in my Kindle to review at times.

How can this program be improved?
I would actually have liked to be challenged a little more. I already can't remember a lot of what I learned, and I'd have liked it if the exams tested me more thoroughly.

ITTT CERTIFICATION OPENED THE WAY

ITTT CERTIFICATION OPENED THE WAY
As Charles Dickens stated in his book, A Tale of Two Cities “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, I decided to embark on a journey to the soils of China in 2017 after I had completed my ITTT certification to see how the future will deal with me.
In fact the wonderful experience that I passed through knew no bounds. My experience was far more than my expectations. My first landing was on the Guangdong province. It was an evening of spectacular sights and sounds.
I was met on arrival by an African friend of mine who has lived in China for about a decade and had mastered the Chinese Mandarin to its best.
The first point of call was a local Chinese restaurant, where I saw groups of Chinese men and women eating different kinds of foods in a blissful mood. We requested for the menu and the colorful illustrations of the foods made me request for the local dumplings. The first intake was a kind of a hard task since I had a zero-experience of using the chopsticks. Gradually it became okay and finally enjoyed my food to the highest level. There were different kinds of drinks, soft and hard to choose from including the local Chinese tea. We walked through the streets of Guangzhou for a while, entered a KTV to enjoy some songs both local and continental and later retired to bed.
The next day served as a starting point for my job hunting expedition, but by the dint of hard work and zeal and with my powerful and recognized ITTT certification, I had a job after three days of searching.
I had a school in Guangzhou which is a popular and commercial hub in the Guangdong Province.
As usual I went in for a demonstration lesson and was fortunately picked, which I always give credits to the best course contents which was developed by the prestigious ITTT.
Since China was now my second home, my interest to learn the Chinese Mandarin to be able to communicate easily with the natives and enjoy my stay in China sky-rocketted.In less than five months I picked up the most essential vocabulary and in the eighth month I had mastered the language to a level that I could communicate with any one.
Because my school had associates and branches in different towns and cities in China, I had the opportunity to move throughout these schools teaching English as a Foreign Language.
The beautiful landscape, beautiful and powerful architectural designs, residential parks and gardens coupled with the dense ever-green vegetation in some parts of China and the rich and marvelous culture of China made my stay in China a remarkable one.
Today, after a year’s stay in China am proud to say that I can speak the Chinese Mandarin very well, and the useful applied linguistics contents gained from the ITTT certification is strongly helping me in my additional field of Computational linguistics which am to complete soon.
Best wishes to ITTT, ITTT graduates and all those who plan taking the ITTT certifications.

TEFL

I have done the course online.
Every time I have sent my final exam, the corrector has been very helpful and assertive in his support.
I had clear feedback.
He was really of great help even taking time to explain point he saw I misunderstood.
I will be going in Tokyo this September and hopefully will start teaching English.
I am very glad to have done the TEFL it was the best reconversion for my age and career.

How can this program be improved?
For the person who do follow the course online.
Maybe add more examples and a chat so we could contact teachers.

Opportunity Maker

So amazing that doing this course opens so many doors. I lived in Vietnam straight after I completed my course and was turning down job offers constantly as teachers are so sought after there. Especially with a good qualification. I travelled India and Thailand too and not only found employment in many countries but volunteered my teaching skills as often as I could. None of which would have been possible without this course. AMAZING!

ITTT Online TEFL

A good option for someone without a lot of time to devote to gaining a TEFL certification, but not wonderful if you want an in-depth instruction into what teaching English actually looks like. But it's definitely a good start, and is very affordable and flexible. At the end of the course, you create lesson plans and receive critiques, which is helpful. You also get a flexible stretch of time in which to complete the course, which is also quite nice if you have other things going on in your life.

How can this program be improved?
The instructional videos and texts were a bit outdated, in my opinion. There should be more effort put into updating the content, and making it more challenging and interactive.

My online TEFL course experience:- Pathway to success in my professional career development

Overall, I really benefited a lot from the online TEFL course i did with ITTT. Even though it was done online, it provided all the materials and resources that consequently flowed throughout my course experience in about a week and some days. The course contained detailed resources that covered major aspects of what a TEFL teacher could expect to see in their classrooms, the different learning styles, the different learner approaches and most importantly the classroom management techniques to use to cater for the needs of the english learners in the classroom. previously before commencing on the online TEFL course with ITTT, i had been teaching English to middle school students in Bolivia, South America and i experienced difficulties in using varied strategies to cater to the needs of my english students and as a result it also affected the classroom management but after having completed the online TEFL course program, i learnt different learning approaches and strategies to use and implement in the classroom to help my english learners which in turn also improved the management of my classroom. With the comprehensive knowledge and lesson plan feedback that i got from completing my online TEFL course i am able to use it currently with my students here in Mexico and it has produced positive results so far.

How can this program be improved?
Maybe by providing a virtual guide online to give a brief over view of the units being covered throughout the course. Also, providing an extension opportunity to the course for in teaching training practice for the newly qualified TEFL/TESOL teachers to have real life teaching in a classroom setting.

Online TEFL/TESOL Course

This program was very thorough and helpful. It breaks down all aspects of TEFL very succinctly into 20 modules and gives very clear instruction. I felt prepared after this course to go into the classroom and positively impact my students. I didn't opt for interaction with the tutor during the modules, but I could easily see how this would have enriched my experience even more. For the lesson plan section, here's my best tip! Be exhaustive in your detail of the all the activities and rationales behind them. The graders want to see your thought process and get in your head. The course was incredibly affordable, and I would definitely recommend it as a dependable, credible, and flexible option for gaining TESOL/TEFL certification.

How can this program be improved?
I think this program could be improved with the inclusion of more media, both in graphics and instructional videos. Many people taking the course are audio-visual learners, and the inclusions of charts, memory aids, graphics, and additional instructional videos would be incredibly helpful.
For example: When giving game ideas for classrooms, maybe have some optional videos included to show how to run games properly in the classroom

Great Course Coverage and preparation for teaching journey

This course was interesting and insightful with the study syllabus clearly and easily presented. The knowledge learnt from it was very useful in helping me designing my classes and tailoring it to fit my students. It allowed me to be able to teach in a group setting and for one-on-one tutoring as well. The resources provided in the reading list encouraged me to continue with my own passion in teaching and improving my teaching skills.
The best part was the simple ways they present their Grammar Units, making it easy for me to understand.

How can this program be improved?
The final exam write-up for classes can include an exam component for teaching a student one-on-one. I feel that aside from teaching plans for a group setting, having us try out a student plan for one-on-one coaching is useful :)

Informative & Affordable

I took the ITTT online course because of my interest in teaching overseas, and found the program through a Groupon, not knowing what I was really signing up for. After many lessons later, I found my knowledge of teaching materials and methods expanded further beyond my practical experience (I taught elementary schools in NY). The information that is provided in this course can help start newcomers by giving them a good footing and sound strategies to work with, or as in my case, it can provide experienced professionals with more tools to add to their inventory and promote you to an even more effective teacher.

I recommend this course to anyone that is interested in teaching (whether it be overseas, or in the states), and to anyone who is also looking for a good deal on informational teaching courses.

How can this program be improved?
I would suggest better feedback from the instructors to the students, in the form of: quicker response time, and more detailed assistance with issues that may arise.

Quick and Easy

The 120 TEFL online course is not groundbreaking, but it does cover the basics for teaching ESL. As someone who did not go to university for teaching, but is very comfortable in the classrooom, this course gave me the language and understanding for why I do what I do in my classes. Overall, the material was easy to understand and the quizzes were not difficult. This program is a quick and easy supplement to your teaching experience abroad, but I'm not sure how essential it is in regards to getting a teaching job.

How can this program be improved?
The material could have more depth. I also remember being confused about the final lesson plan submission. Clearer guidelines would be helpful.

Passport to a new life experience.

I opted for the ITTT online course as a "safe" option when I first considered teaching overseas.
I found the course to be structured in a way that was easy to follow, and challenging yet not too difficult. The course actually challenged me to think more critically about my first language, as well as how people learn. Along the way I had a few questions about the course content as well as working overseas. From my experience, the help and support has been first rate and my contact at ITTT was very knowledgeable.
My ITTT qualification opened up more teaching opportunities that I would have otherwise had. It allowed me to find the perfect job, in the country of my choice.
4 years later I am still travelling and working overseas.
My ITTT qualification has proven to be my Passport to a new life experience.
