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.

We help all of our ITTT graduates to find EFL teaching positions around the world and online. Our staff are available to all course graduates and will work to ensure that they get a job in the location of their choice. Jobs are plentiful, all of our graduates can expect to receive multiple job offers upon completion of the course. Feel free to check out our job section: https://www.teflcourse.net...

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. .

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.

Great tool and experience!

I took the ITTT TEFL Online course before my trip to Asia and I must say it was an invaluable tool to be able to find a job and make a living.
Without this certificate, I probably wouldn't have been able to find a job so quickly. It was a great tool and due to the organization's great prestige and reputation, I was highly respected.

This certificate enabled me to stay in Asia for 2 years, then I was able to work in Italy for some time before heading to Central America. It has served me in 3 continents, and counting.

I highly recommend it to anyone interested in traveling and getting paid while you travel. I've been able to have amazing experiences, and meet great people, all because I've had this on my CV.

It has paid itself many times over, it was one of the best investments I ever made on myself.

Keep up the great work and I look forward to using my knowledge and certificate for years to come!

Good value for price

I chose this program because I wanted to do it online, quickly, and for not a lot of money. For the price, it was good value, though there could have been more support from staff as well as guidance to getting a job after the program. Some more hands-on teaching experience could've been nice but that is something to consider if doing the program online versus in a classroom. However, since it was less costly than other programs, this is what I expected and I still got my TEFL certificate which is what matters.

What would you improve about this program?
More hands on work like actually teaching in class, as well as more support from staff.

Great introduction

I think that the program that ITTT offers is really wonderful. It’s not overpriced and covers a range of topics that are helpful.
They have a good mix of topics including: grammar, pronunciation, classroom tools, games, activities and parts of speech.

I think that the program is a great one for beginners and those who are starting a teaching career. It’s like a primer in a way. I think that they could have gone more in depth for certain topics, and some grammar parts are a little thin.

Overall though having a TESOL certifaction course for this price is amazing. ITTT has a wonderful presence and always post guides on jobs and possible job opportunities.

I was able to secure a Departure of State internship creating English lessons for the Islamabad embassy because of this program.
I’m hoping to teach abroad because of my certificate and my internship.

Overall very satisfied 95/100

What would you improve about this program?
Increase the topics covered, for grammar and parts of speech.
Also expand into idioms, phrases & expressions.

I finally learned correct grammar!

This started with a simple desire to teach overseas. But it turned into a challenge, one I didn't think I would have a problem facing down: English grammar. I'd never had a problem using it, but could never explain the "why" of how it worked. With ITTT, not only did I have a rigorous course-load of creating lesson plans and practicing the grammar, but I also had an instructor who would not settle for anything less than my best. My course was online, so communication was in email form, but I always had my questions answered and work responded to quickly. I came out of the course prepared to use and teach grammar as I had never before been prepared. I highly recommend this course and company. Not only do they offer valuable support and learning, but they also continue to communicate with graduates post-completion, offering opportunities to work or study abroad that I otherwise would not have accessed.

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.

What would you improve about this program?
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

This program can be improved through much taught on the practical and real-life applications of in-class assessment, monitoring and evaluate to adequately check and balance learning process. 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. The program can be improved by creating much advert and awareness on its relevance and level of acceptance to all developed, developing and underdeveloped countries.

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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.
