ITTT 120 Online TEFL Certification Course

The course was really good. Their course fees are reasonable. It helped me re learn things that I have learned while I was in school. It also made me learn new things and strategies for teaching and lesson planning. Most of all the certification from this course opened the doors for me into the teaching profession and has changed my life for the better! I recommended their course to some friends of mine and they are also happy that they took it. Presently, I am working on a diploma course with ITTT Online TEFL Course.

Affordable and straightfoward

iTTT Online TEFL Course is good. It covers most subjects necessary for someone to be a TEFL Teacher and it's based on a specific TEFL methodology - ESA -, although it also mentions other ones. The course is pretty straightfoward, easy to comprehend and very affordable. Being an online course, it's possible to study at our own pace (within a certain timeframe, of course). The one I got has tutor support and video lessons, which was great. I'd recommend it.

Ittt course

The pace of the course was perfect and was a great value. My sister previously did the course in early 2000 and has taught overseas since in South Korea and Saudi Arabia and now has a master's in teaching. It had owned a lot of doors for her.
Myself I got a degree in finance and have been trying to find work in my field sense being laid off over 4 years ago and now that my kids are grown I've decided to try something new and travel and make done money while I'm doing it.

ITTT 120 Hour Online Course Review

The ITTT online course was the beginning of my teaching career, and five years later I can say it changed my life. Since completing the course, I have taught in four different countries in Europe and in Asia. This course gave me the confidence that I needed in learning the fundamentals about teaching before I was able to actually go in the classroom and start doing it on my own. The assignments for the course were very challenging, but also very practical so that almost all things that I learned in the course have been directly applied throughout the past few years of my teaching. I would definitely recommend taking this course!

How can this program be improved?
I think it would be helpful if there were video submissions that were required for some of the lessons, instead of having everything in a written format. This would give the course a more interactive approach and would help to build confidence for teaching in front of real students in a classroom.

Planning Ahead to Teach Abroad

This program was perfect for my needs. I had found out a little late in my application process that the job I had applied for in Seoul, South Korea wanted me to have a TEFL certificate. Luckily, I could do this one online, at my own pace. I found the lessons helpful and informative. I used a lot of the information I learned in the classroom. I was able to get my final test done early enough for it to help me with the final paperwork needed for the job.

I ended up not needing the certificate for the job I got because they finally accepted my law degree, but because of the certificate, I received a higher bracket of pay, much more than the cost of the ITTT program. I definitely recommend it if you want to teach English as Second Language in a foreign country.

How can this program be improved?
Not much. Maybe some more resources for future teachers, such as example lesson plans and help with classroom management.

ITTT On-line course

I am a happy customer of ITTT. At first, I was skeptical if I would get enough information in order to to become and English language Teacher, but when I started the course, I was surprised how much information the material contained for a fraction of the price! Actually, it was a bit challenging to me to learn the material and pass all the tests, and of course, I had to put time and effort into the studying the course to finish it successfully. As a result, I have received an excellent grade thanks to the great support and feedback from the staff as well as helpful video lessons included with this 120-hour course! I am very pleased with the course and will recommend it to my friends!

Excellent TEFL Course

This course made getting my TEFL as fun and convenient as possible. The instructor provided timely, in-depth feedback via email, and the course assignments were quality and applicable to real-life situations. Not too easy or too difficult. After finishing, I jumped right into an ESL teaching job with confidence and a good grasp of basic skills (not having any knowledge in this area before taking the course). Overall, professional and manageable. I would definitely recommend this program.

ITTT TEFL Online Course Review

I am from the USA but currently living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I had been working for a friend (who has an English institute), giving English conversation classes. Once I started working towards my TEFL certification, I was able to be hired by another institute and given a job at a software company, teaching English to the employees. Since my Spanish isn't very strong, I found the structure of lesson planning to be very useful in my classes. I learned a lot about how to build lessons and establish rapport with my students through the TEFL course, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to make some extra money while traveling abroad. The online version was the right fit for me, and you can't beat the price. Overall, I have had a positive experience with the ITTT TEFL online course.

How can this program be improved?
Perhaps the sections could be a little shorter, with more units in total.

Excellent Programme for Would-Be Teachers!

I took the ITTT TEFL course in 2013 when I was teaching English in South Korea. For me, it was a superb complement to my teaching. Most take the course prior but since I took it during the time I was teaching, I felt as if I could hone my skills even more with recommendations, exercises and readings from the course. In addition, what was brilliant was that I was given a complimentary 50-hour CTEYL course along with the TEFL. I was teaching children and teenagers at the time and, because I had never taught prior to this, it really helped me as far as keeping young learners engaged and presenting the language in an engaging way so that they could enjoy the learning process.

Fast forward to 2014 and, because of my experience in Korea but additionally, because of my TEFL course, aspects such as lesson planning and grammar review served me in good stead as I got a job teaching adult speakers of other languages in Miami. I had previous experience learning grammar and vocabulary, etc in my native Trinidad where I attended primary and high school, but having the grammar review from the ITTT TEFL course helped me to be able to explain it to students. In fact, during my interview for this job, I was asked to explain some grammar concepts.

Thank You ITTT TEFL for your superior programmes and the support from instructors who check the assignments given. I would and have highly recommended your programmes to others.

Sincerely,

Rachael David

Great course

The course material are in turns of grammar and teaching techniques are excellent. So easy to comprehend and then explain to the students. Also included video were very useful to give examples for teaching techniques. Great support and feedback from the staff review the assessments during the course. I would recommend it 100% to anyone willing to get TEFL certificate and teach overseas. I have used it to teach young people that were struggling to understand the English grammar and it was great.

If it’s possible to include some practice hours would be great

Great value for money

I am very happy that I found this course. I wanted to get a TEFL certification, but wasn't able to travel to take an onsite course, so the online one was a great option, also very reasonably priced. I must mention though that I was already rather experienced in teaching at the time I took the course, and needed more of a refresher and an acknowledgement of my expertise. Although very well structured, with meaningful content, I am not sure how the online course would work for an absolute beginner. And that wouldn't be because the knowledge is not enough, but it is better to have some hands on onsite experience to maximize the learning experience. That being said, if the online course was so well structured and helpful, I can only imagine that the onsite one is even better.

How can this program be improved?
I have no ideas at the moment.

Convenient and Useful

I was looking to take a TEFL course but was living in an area that lacked resources and internet in Peru. I was able to take the course on my own time, which made it easy to go find WiFi during my time off and complete the course! The materials are continually accessible, which is nice when I find a need for them in my current job! I actually feel prepared and ready to teach English as a foreign language thanks to them!

The best course online you'll ever find!

I had the chance to take the TEFL course one year ago and I have to say I was satisfied with everything, but a part of me wanted to complete the 450-hour course (which I did) and I have to admit it, the course itself exceeded my expectations, whether you are starting a new career or if you are an experienced teacher (this is for you!!), this course is for everyone who wants to go further and thanks to the 450-course I was able to get the job that I wanted in China and my evaluation was higher than the rest of the teachers who applied for the same position, and this comment is not enough to thank the team at ITTT for the opportunity I was given, their education helped me boost my career to levels I never thought possible, don't hesitate to ask them and take action, they will be there with you all the way and even after you finish, they'll keep sending you information about potential jobs, ITTT will open you the doors to a whole new world!

Be Certified as an English Language Teacher

I was already an English Language Teacher but not skillful before taking the TEFL course. The course refined my teaching techniques like a refined product. It equipped me with the essential teaching tools making me a proficient and skillful English teacher. My students look forward to my class because they always have something new to learn in a dynamic way.
I applied the recommended classroom management in my kid’s class. The result was excellent. The kids became more participating and cooperative. Some of the kids’ parents asked me for extra class for their kids I guess because they can’t get enough of me.. This has made my teaching career refreshing, rewarding and easy.

One of my favorites is the way tenses and grammars are taught in the course. It shows the practical approach to teach them and the real life situation to use them making the knowledge sink into the students consciousness. For example in unit four, I learned the usage of simple present tense and expected errors from students. The activate teaching stage is exceptionally useful and wonderful, it helps the teacher to guide the students to practice the present tense using tips such as : find someone who..., a day in the life of.., questionnaires, guess my professions, information-gap. With activities like these students talking time is maximized. My students no longer view grammars as complex, vague, confuse language rules. I feel contented, satisfied and accomplished when my students tell me “you are the best teacher” and I am indebted to TEFL with infinite gratitude for this.

The points covered in the course will make teaching easy and enjoyable even to a novice teacher if applied. It particularly shows how you can plan and deliver your lessons in the classroom. It shows you the step by step way to deliver a topic using activities and tasks that will make the lesson dynamic and and boredom free. With these tasks (cutting of papers, roleplays, gap filling, short questions, conducting surveys, find who etc) there is an active students participation in the language learning making it to be fun instead of the conventional boring lecture type. For example in unit 16. I learned the types of conditionals and that we could cut the various conditional sentences and mixed them together for students to practice their use of conditionals.

I like the part of the course that talks about various classroom situations and how to manage them (Unit 20, Troubleshooting). It discusses warmers which actually work wonders in the classroom. Reluctant students is another one and other real life classroom situations and how to handle them successfully. Kids class are the most difficult class to manage, but with this course it becomes a piece of cake.

After taking the TEFL course, the language institute where I had been working for two years previously in Mexico quickly notice the positive changes in my performance, couple with students positive feedback, I was immediately awarded the best teacher of the month among more than 30 teachers.
Due to the overwhelming impact of the course in my life , I have referred more than five people who successfully paid for the program. I will remain an active promoter and a staunch advocate of TEFL courses.

The TEFL program offers not only a certificate that is known and respected worldwide, but also a professional teaching refinement to make one a capable teacher even those from non education background like me. That is why schools worldwide use it as a recruitment benchmark. Besides the TESOL certificate is a visa to tour the world with dignity because you have something important the world need.

How can this program be improved?
I would recommend more classroom tasks or activities and role plays be added. more probable class troubleshooting be added

At my pace :)

I completed both the TEFL and Teaching Business English Course. I really enjoyed taking the online course. It worked perfectly with my schedule and my instructor was good at giving constructive and helpful feedback. I was able to take my time completing the different tasks required, which further enhanced my learning process. After my course, I taught English abroad. I was also able to apply the lessons I learned with my courses while I worked abroad.

How can this program be improved?
Including videos to give students practical examples of the tools being taught.
