So far, so good!

I am in the process of making my way through the 120hr online certification with ITTT TEFL.

I am currently living abroad in West Africa. It is such a fantastic opportunity for me to bring my love of kids and teaching into the sphere of really making a difference in people's lives.

I have been a yoga instructor and massage therapist/instructor for 10 years and I wanted a change of pace and to teach in a different way and travel. This is such a great way to work, travel and enjoy life.

I really appreciate the organization of this process - the units and testing. It is challenging and inspiring. It is very educational and I feel like I am gaining great skills and competence to really make a difference in the lives of those I will be tutoring.

From tutoring experience in the past with individuals and groups of all age levels and educational levels, I see this as a great fit and next step in my journey and discovery of more of the world.

Thank you!

So far the staff has been helpful and has answered questions I have had in a timely manner. I look forward to where this will take me and definitely recommend the program to others.

Online TEFL

The online TEFL program is easy and convenient to navigate. I was able to complete this program while working full time and going to school and having a small child. I was able to complete the modules around my schedule. The curriculum was easy to follow and support was available if needed. Only concern is that I have been unable to find an online assignment using the certification. I have a Masters in Education but have been unsuccessful at finding online teaching TEFL positions.

Your Money's Worth

This is an accredited Course. That's the very first thing I wanna tell you. Secondly, the course without tutors is inexpensive compared to others I've seen out there. You can find free online TEFL courses which I checked out thinking I could save some money and would NOT recommend. I quickly returned to the ITTT website and signed up. The free course of that other website was filled with so many grammatical errors, you'd be ashamed of yourself if you ended up with a certificate like that.

ITTT is definitely worth the $239usd I spent for my 120hr course with no tutor. I loved the choice of being able to complete this course over 180 days. The multiple choice questions are not a walk over, so don't underestimate them. Tread carefully because you need a really good average to complete the course. I'm not gonna lie, there were times I hated having to do the MCQ's because I just wanted to hurry and do everything but the more you rush, the more your grades will suffer. So slow down and try to do 2 units per day if you see that the units are short enough for you to do that. You need a 70% average to pass but don't limit yourself to that. You need patience as well to do this, trust me. I signed up in December and completed my course in February of 2018. The lesson plan was the hardest challenge I faced with this online course but I completed everything and now I have my pristine certification for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I was so proud of myself that I updated my resume with my new acquisition the very day I got it in the mail. Now, I work in China teaching children and the course units helped me prepare for it. Units like classroom management, lesson planning, and different ESA strategies have helped me in the classroom. Plus, after getting your certicate they also send you emails to tell you which countries you can find a job in and their blog has many helpful topics I browse through. The most recent one that caught my eye was saving for your student loans. So yeah, I would recommend ITTT to you to get started in the ESL world. I absolutely see how I got my money's worth with this course.

How can this program be improved?
This program can consider making improvements to the lesson plan portion of the course. It was very frustrating to know in University, you created many A and B quality lesson plans and then it seemed like the marker could not give clearer instructions as to what was needed. In my experience, if I got everything in detail from the marker in my first email, I would not have needed to create a 3rd lesson plan. Furthermore, the hour which is given is not sufficient or realistic for the lesson. That lesson plan exceeds 1 hour which means cramming as much information as you can into the lesson. That's not cool! Perhaps ITTT can reduce the number of things asked for in the lesson plan and be more lucid in what they ask for.

Great online course

I started this course so I could teach over seas in Cambodia for a year. I didn’t end up going to camdbodia but so glad I completed this course anyways. It is user friendly and allows you to get your work don’t in your own time. The material is layed out in a nice organized manner. However some of the material used I didn’t even know and wasn’t familiar with. So it’s surprising to me. I am exspected to teach other people from other languages parts of English I don’t even understand. I know learning everything is a must but just an observation.

INCREDIBLY EYES OPENING

I am a teacher from Nigeria. My oversees teaching experience began after I had a 120 hour TEFL course with ITTT TEFL.
In the past, I had always believed my teaching career was limited to my country, because Nigeria is not categorized as a Native English country, though I studied English Education. But after I read some articles from ITTT on the possibility of teaching English abroad as a non-native, I registered for the 120 hours online course. Sincerely speaking, it was indeed a wonderful experience for me. I got introduced to different modern methodologies of teaching people of different ages and backgrounds.

Oh, I can't forget how challenging it was to get through with my lesson plan. It was rejected twice, but with the step-by-step guidance and assistance from the reviewer, I was able to get it right the third time. Few hours later, I got the soft copy of my TEFL certificate, and in less than two weeks, the hard copy was delivered to me.

Getting a job was made easier through the regular job posts on ITTT TEFL Facebook page. From there I got my first offer from Mexico, and the second offer from Turkey. It is important to note that I was able to perform excellently well during my job interviews because of the correct application of what I learnt from the 120 hours course.

And within the last three years that I completed this program, I have recommended the program to a large number of Teachers, who also have unique testimonies about how the program has changed their ESL teaching career.

How can this program be improved?
The program delivery is awesome, however for people that would love to be part of the in-class tutoring, I will advise the organization to open more offices in countries where they have more online students.

ITTT online

I have really enjoyed the ITTT online course. I feel like it has vastly helped me feel prepared for any future TEFL teaching that I may do, and it is very user friendly. I would recommend this program to anyone! The units take a little time and so do the videos, but it is honestly worth it. You are able to gain so much information from them. The tests are pretty straightforward as well and don’t try to trick you. Thank you for making this course so helpful!

How can this program be improved?
Maybe provide online chat with tutors instead of having to send an email.

Ittt 50 hour course

The course was very informative and well planned. It had all the information broken down into nice blocks and was easy to follow. I enjoyed the tests which gave you a chance to challenge your learning.
Support was neither great nor bad. They sometimes answered my questions in a way that was helpful and other times were a bit dry. I would definitely tell people about the course. It helped me better understand and help my students.

How can this program be improved?
Support can be a bit more effective. And videos would be great. The lesson showing the lessons taught were the most helpful.

Did the course while in between jobs

I decided to do the Tefl course although a native English speaker and have taught English for a number of years in several countries because I wanted to develop my craft. I was also in between jobs at the time and having been out of the classroom for a while it served as a wonderful way to keep plugged in to the trends of teaching and keep my skills sharp for when I would ultimately return to the classroom.

This being my first experience with any online education platform I was truly impressed. The options were many to suit whatever need the student may have, instructions were clear and the material was easily accessible.

Since completing the course I have found that my resume gets a lot more attention from potential employers. And since returning to the classroom the skills I learned from ITTT have been useful every step of the way

How can this program be improved?
Perhaps more assistance with job placement overseas especially for candidates from the Caribbean or other less developed countries.

Excellent Learning Experience with ITTT Online

I signed up for a TEFL training course in the winter of 2017. I was teaching full time and struggling to stay on top on my workload. The course was easy to manage, with clear expectations. I found much of the materials relevant to my classroom and students. Teaching and learning became fun and engaging again with this course! Once or twice, I reached out to the support staff, and my questions were answered within the same day! I would recommend ITTT Online to anyone interested in learning how to teach and reach more students or anyone who wants to get an excellent TEFL training.

How can this program be improved?
I can't think of anything right now. Keep up the good work!

Great!

I did the 120 Hour Online Course as well as the 50 Hour Course specialising in young kids. It was very informative and simplified syntax and grammar in a way that is easy to understand and convey as a teacher. The tutor was fantastic and feedback was fast and effective. Not only did the course improve my teaching skills and grammar knowledge, but equipped me with material for the classroom as well, which I used during my entire two years in the classroom! I would recommend this to everyone as the most affordable and efficient programme I could find.

120hr TEFL Course (Online)

I thoroughly enjoyed doing the ITTT 120hr online TEFL course. I found the content of each lesson to be informative and very comprehensible. I was already teaching English online when I began the course and I was able to pair my practical experience with the theory provided by ITTT. It certainly improved my teacher ratings! I also really appreciated the review of grammar that the course provided. Having studied such material in a first language school environment before, it was very enlightening to see it presented as a second language learner would experience it. I have since applied many of the tips and methods from this course in my teaching and I truly believe that I, as well as my students, have benefited from this. Thank you!

How can this program be improved?
The only improvement I can suggest is to include more images for visual learners such as myself.

Online Ease

I took the 120 credit hour online course without tutor assistance for my TEFL certification. It was an excellent course because it allowed me to take my time through the materials, balancing out my own schedule with the coursework. I now live abroad and teach English as a second language. The coursework prepared me well, especially in regards to lesson planning and grammar. I use my knowledge acquired from this course on a daily basis. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to teach English abroad as a good checkbox for your resume as well as training for future teaching jobs.

How can this program be improved?
I wouldn't change a thing about the program I took. It was excellent.

Very informative

As an experienced English teacher, with over 10 years of experience, I was a little hesitant at first about completing a TEFL. The program, however, was very informative and I learned quite a lot of new and useful information. I have since implemented what I've learned and applied it to my classroom. The course has been advantageous and beneficial to both myself and my students. The program was perfect for me as I teach full time. I could study and complete the program at my own pace. All in all, I would definitely recommend taking the course, but be ready to commit.

Low cost but just a certificate

I thought the materials were useful, and I learnt a lot about grammar and some basic information. However, it was not very challenging, and too easy to pass. It was an online course, so there were no practical elements which is a major drawback. There was no online community discussions or group work either, so it was very isolating as a course.

It's great if you want a cheap, online TEFL certificate to add to your resume for an unexperienced teacher. However, practically it's not that useful in the classroom.

How can this program be improved?
Make it more interactive, group work, more challenging with more feedback from tutors throughout the course, not just for the lesson plan final assignment.
No, I don't recommend

Worth It

It was good to learn technical terms and grammatical forms that I did not know how to describe. Money-wise, it was expensive but I had a grant also that covered part of the cost. It was nice to know more about English from a teaching perspective and did widen my perspective and knowledge. I enjoyed that I could download and access content chapters and material offline which made it easy for me to do work whenever I could. The organization of ITTT and its format of learning a chapter and then doing a quiz was very methodical and easy to use/remember.
