Questions & Answers

To me the certificate came in less than 2 weeks. But i’m assuming it might depend on where you live, so if you want/need it to be delivered sooner you can request a faster delivery service for a cost. Hope i could help, Denis.
I think that anyone can teach English, whether mother-tongue or not. If you only speak English, maybe you should try to learn the local language.
Hello Jake, We offer various payment options like PayPal, wire transfer, Western Union, credit card and even WeChat. The prices you see are all the total prices for the course.
Hello Laura, Yes, you can certainly get certified if you're married with children!

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.

EXCELLENT 60-hour ONLINE TEFL COURSE

I enjoyed the 60-hour course so much - that towards the end, though I was nervous (for the final evaluation), I found myself wishing I had signed on for the 120-hour course! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who would like to improve their ESL teaching skills and methods. I especially appreciate the ESA method, and being challenged to elicit learning from the students themselves (as opposed to teaching it to them). The videos of real-life lessons were insightful and fun! I downloaded all the Units so that I can refer to them anytime. The proforma lesson plan is superb and forces you to plan your lesson well.

How can this program be improved?
A few more 'real-life' videos would be great!

60-hour TESOL

A great and exciting course with an insight into the way teaching methods are formed, lots of examples, including a real-life class and extraordinarily rich vocabulary. A transparent test system. Hope to make life-changing improvements with this new adventurous professional experience! The tips covered by this course are useful in my experience as an ESL teacher in China, which is important to me now that I've been hired abroad.

How can this program be improved?
More career development post graduation: information about high potential markets for ESL teachers, on things to know about these countries and tips on employment. More video examples from real-life classes.

Online TEFL Course: ITTT

The course overall was pretty good. Having earned my Diploma and Bachelors Degree in Education, I pretty much knew most of the information beforehand. however, the video lessons that showed classroom techniques in the ESL classroom were very significant to show best practices in a classroom with students who may not readily understand what is being said. I also appreciated the classroom management section of the course. I have used many of the strategies that were taught and I have found them to be quite effective in helping to keep students focused and active in the ESL classroom.
The only thing I really didn't like about the course was the excessive reading as I believe a lot of the information could have been more condensed, thus easier to go through as I was doing the course while working full time.

How can this program be improved?
By condensing the information to more easier to read chunks. I just thought there was a lot of reading that needed to be. Also, the questions in the test section could explore more of what was read. It felt like I read a whole book but then was only questioned about one chapter.

ITTT helped me start teaching English to Chinese students online

After completing my 120-hour online course with ITTT, I was genuinely ready to teach English to non-English speakers, and have been doing so successfully for a year now. I also have given ESL tutorial classes in-person to students here in New York. It's a "perfect fit" for me. ITTT credentials were my "passport." And the lesson plans I developed in the ITTT TEFL course, together with the "prefab" lessons they provide, have been essential teaching tools for me.
I can genuinely say that ITTT opened the door to a new life for me -- one that is full of adventure, new friends, and new opportunities to learn. I get consistent 5-star ratings from my students, and have developed wonderful friendships. I have also received numerous job offers to teach in China, and look forward to taking this opportunity soon -- once I have learned to speak enough Chinese to get along, and avoid starvation! It's very exciting, and the opportunities are truly endless.

How can this program be improved?
It's really good, but could perhaps be improved by adding face-to-face classes via Skype.

Good crash course in ESL teaching

This program provided basic education in what is expected from an English teacher abroad, but I would not consider this a true 120 hour course. I completed this course as a requirement to obtain a working visa in China, however I had previous teaching experience (just not a degree). If you already have experience and need a cost-effective addition to your resume, this is perfect. The information is useful, and being able to download and review course materials after completion is helpful, but the course is very easy to skim and still pass with flying colours. I was able to complete the 120 hour course in just over a week's worth of 2 hour long sessions. This makes for a great refresher for someone who's been away from teaching for a while, but if you're passionate about ESL teaching and want to learn a lot, opt for a true 120-hr in person course rather than the online version.

How can this program be improved?
More in depth material and practical strategies for managing behavior issues and multilevel classrooms.
Yes, I recommend this program

Great, Affordable Course

I am currently in the middle of taking this course so I cannot attest to job guidance yet, however the course itself provides great information for managing classrooms and ideas for lessons. Some of the material seems a little dated, however this does not inhibit your takeaway from the course. It is written in British English. As an American English speaker, the difference threw me off a little at first. Overall this is great course for the price!

How can this program be improved?
The material could be updated. It would also be a great asset if the videos were interactive.

ITTT Online TEFL Course-Useful and Worth Taking!

Overall I found this course to be well organised, and a fairly comprehensive guide to TEFL teaching. It's designed and written clearly and is easy to follow, and useful not only for those with no experience in teaching English as a foreign language, but also for those who already have some experience in the field. My only regret is that I took the 60-hour-course rather than the 120-hour-course. Later I found out that many countries require at least 120 hours TEFL for legal full-time employment. However, I've found out that it is possible to extend the 60-hour course to 120 hours by doing a "top up course" for a reasonable price, and shall certainly do so when time allows. Overall I found studying online an enjoyable and comparatively stress-free experience and would definitely recommend this course to anyone.

How can this program be improved?
Maybe the video footage used in the programme could be updated. Also it might be an idea to scratch the 60 hour course and make 120 the minimum.
Yes, I recommend this program

Great

As a native English speaker and fully bilingual English-Italian speaker, I needed a certification to enable my teaching in local Italian schools and allow me to participate in public call for bids.
Someone suggested ITTT TEFL online course and all I can say that it was worth it! Ever since I have obtained this certification, my work experience has grown substantially. ITTT TELF have always sent me updates on where I could go and teach around the world, but for the time being I am based in Italy and am not interested in those proposals, yet it is refreshing to know that I will always have that option to choose from if I ever need to go abroad.
I recommend ITTT TEFL online course if you work during the day and cannot attend a regular in-person class. They are very serious at marking your work and the tutors are always available to help.

Best Way to Get TEFL Certification

I arrived in South Korea with a college degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2007. At that time, that was enough to get a job teaching English in a private academy. But in order to apply for University English teaching positions, I needed to add a TEFL certificate to my resume. I searched online for different ways to get my TEFL certificate, and I found the ITTT Online TEFL Course to be the perfect match. You have 6mo to complete the course, and you can work at your own pace. And the price is very reasonable, considering that you are only an email/phone call/chat away from your course advisor at any time. I would recommend that anyone considering a TEFL/TESOL certificate consider the ITTT Online TEFL Course. You won't regret it!

How can this program be improved?
It has been a while since I took the course, and at the time I took it there was no "virtual classroom" concept where students who were actively involved in taking the course could collaborate / share thoughts / communicate with each other. I would suggest that this feature be added to make it more of an online "classroom" with more than just a student and an instructor.

ITTT 120 hours online TEFL

I just completed my 120 hours TEFL certificate, and I am really happy. I have learned a lot from this course, very interesting and informative. I now have a better understanding of how to teach English to non-native speakers. I completed this course in less than a month, with an overall average of 95.83%. The unit tests were very manageable. The lesson plan was a bit challenging, but I was able to succeed in my first attempt. Thanks to ITTT for the wealth of knowledge I have gained from this course. I now look forward to using what I have learned in teaching English to non-native speakers. I hope to gain employment soon to teach English in China.

The only improvement I would suggest is to give us more lesson to practice and evaluate before we submit the final lesson plan, so we can have more confidence in doing the final lesson plan.

Online TEFL Course ITTT

I studied foreign language education at the university, but got into management after. I decided that I was wasting my life not seeing the world. This program was perfect for me and my background. The course was easy because I had studied similar topics. The difference is that this program helped me reach my dreams. I am from Ohio, but I currently live in Turkey. I have an amazing career that ITTT helped me find after receiving my certification. They also have a great Facebook page that I can follow to learn more about TEFL employment opportunities and the TEFL community. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to see the world.

Honestly, the program was a good fit for me. I wouldn't recommend changes.

Great Online Course

The online ITTT course worked well with my busy schedule. I am a mom of four, and was easily able to balance studying and life. Although I am not directly teaching English right now, what I learned has definitely helped me in my current position at an international school in Nicaragua. I am a librarian and also taught English to 9 the graders for a short while. What I learned with ITTT has made me more aware how most of the students at the school learn and how I can help them.

Online TEFL Review

This is a good course as long as you are self motivated. It is not difficult but you need to put in the time and effort to read and complete the course. They send links of places where you can find teaching jobs but it's very general. I already had a job lined up in Korea, however if I hadn't of had that I think they would have been very helpful in helping me to find a job as they respond quickly to emails.

Great course!
