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. .

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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
More in depth material and practical strategies for managing behavior issues and multilevel classrooms.

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!

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

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!

What would you improve about this program?
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.
