A Decent TEFL course

ITTT's online TEFL certification is a great option for students who know they want to teach abroad, but may be strapped for cash and can't afford to travel somewhere to take a course.
That was my situation. The course itself will give you a basic run-down of how to teach following 3-Stage teaching format called ESA. The course is fairly straightforward, you work through a set amount of modules, then take a final exam which is planning your own ESA format lesson. The course will do a good job at giving you an idea of how to teach a class of teenagers or adults. The method used doesn't really work well with young children, which is most of my classes. Keep in mind that every school will do things a little different. For example, the school I work at now in Taiwan wants us to use a different teaching method called PPP, it's very similar to ESA but it works better for younger learners. So the method you learn may not be what you actually use in your day to day lessons. Overall, I would say this course is a great option if you don't have a $1000+ (USD) to spend on an in-class course. However, if you have the extra, I highly advise you take an in-class program because with that, you get teaching experience. My first time ever teaching was absolute mess and it made me really wish I had that prior experience. But for what you pay, you do get some detailed lessons, activity idea, and most importantly the certification itself.

How can this program be improved?
I think the program could be improved by focusing on a few other teaching methods like PPP and task based learning. This would help teachers go into their jobs with a better understanding of what methods will work best for different types of classes. Some schools may not care what method you use as long as you get the job done, while others are a little more picky with how teachers go about their lessons.

ittt is an amazing program which helped me study while still working. The course Instructions and are simple and easy to follow and assitance is always quick to reply when needed. I would highly reccomend ittt to anyone wanting to study online. The units are easy to work through and explained in simple format, while also giving examples where needed. ITTT have now given me the oppotunity to live with my partner overseas while doing something i love, teaching english in Indonesia.

Fantastic experience

I really enjoyed taking part in this course. My mother tongue is English, and still I learnt alot from taking this course. I learnt alot about rules in English that just came naturally for me but I was able to learn the rule behind it. This course looks great on my CV and a lot of jobs to do with Education look for a course like this. I would definetly recommend this course, help was on hand anytime I was unsure!

The Best Diploma/Certificate in Teaching English

I strongly recommend this program. The course material is brilliant and useful. The instructions are straightforward. The tests highlight the most important aspects of teaching English. I am happy that I have found this course, as I study and get a certificate in the comfort of my home. In addition, I can complete the course at my own pace. Of course, there is a time limit of 180 days for the basic course, but it is well enough if you are really interested in getting a certificate and becoming a teacher.

120-hour TEFL/TESOL

The online 120 hour Tesol/TEFL course honestly has been a very insightful one for me. I have learned English as a child and still continue to use English daily. The experience with the course that fascinates me most is the 'how' to teach various aspects of the english language. Though I passed the lesson planning, and of course went through the quizzes with ease, after resubmitting twice, I learned something very important. I had to prepare my lesson plan on the usage of the present continuous tense. The grammartical structure subject+aux verb+ -ing ending is to be included in the plan and in the teaching and learners encouraged to learn to use this structure in the formation of sentences on their own. Writing the plan down actually helps to make sure you teach your lesson thoroughly.

How can this program be improved?
I think that basically the online programme without tutor support is excellent. The content of each unit is just great providing very relevant cases for teaching and learning english. Probably the webpage could be updated to current year to clear doubts about it been current and relevant for today.

An up-to-date Course

This is a must do Online Course for every Teacher or teacher-to-be. All of the Units bring valueble information, straight to the point facts. Up-to-date content with intelligent and crucial insights to lesson plans, class management and many more.
If you aren’t sure where to start, i recommend the 60hr Online Program. From there you can level up and take on any of the other available Courses.
I myself am headed to the Mater Program of 50hr. Make your choice.

I would definitely recommend this course to my friends

I enjoyed studying this 120-hour TEFL/TESOL course a lot! All the materials were well structured and balanced. Staff support was very responsive, flexible, and helpful. There were 20 units and each of them required passing a test at the end. All students are required to submit a lesson plan at the end of the course and that part was the most challenging part. I am happy that my lesson plan has been accepted on the first attempt! It took me a lot of time and concentration though. But if you get your course with video, and tutor support, and also, if read unit content and requirements carefully - you are going to pass it successfully! I am looking forward to taking the other two courses I signed up for, which are also parts of my Master package: Teaching English to Young Learners and Teaching Business English.

How can this program be improved?
Videos were very helpful, but I would like to improve the quality of them. The silent moments and squeaky marker moments would be better cut out.

Would definitely recommend

I would recommend this course to a friend. I was extremely happy with this course! I have zero teaching experience and after going through this course I feel confident that I could teach English in a foreign country. I did the 120-hour course with videos, and the videos were especially helpful because they showed how the lesson plan you're reading on paper actually comes to life in a classroom, which put my nerves at ease. I'm now considering doing the ITTT observed teaching practice (OTP) course because I want to go to Vietnam and they really value live in-class demos as part of their hiring process.

How can this program be improved?
One thing I think could improve is I feel the multiple choice tests at the end of each unit are too easy. Also, it took a few days for course tutors to get back to me with answers to my questions. They should respond the day of.

Nice chance to change my life

As for me it is the best conception - to travel and to earn. I was looking for something like this for a long time. At first I was afraid when got the materials. I desided to try (permission to get my money back consoled me). But everyting went good. I successfully pass all units. There were no problems with it. The main difficulty was with the lesson plan. I did it when it was my last try)). Now I`m trying to pass BE and English to young learners. And I`m looking forward to get a job in Europe.

How can this program be improved?
At the last stage I sow the tutors were extremally buisy. May be it would be usefull to inkrease number of teachers.

Creating a lesson plan during the course, or showing examples of lesson plans -would be useful.

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.

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

Well done iTTT!

Translation:
I like to know what are the goals of my student. What motivates them to want to learn a language. I try to discern the language level and abilities of my future students before creating my lesson plans to build on what they already know. I use the ESA method (engage / study / activate) for my class formats. I try to minimize TT (teacher speaking time) and increase STT (student talk time). I always present myself with a smile, enthusiasm and energy, as well as a professional but friendly approach. I appreciate the importance of prompting (thinking about issues) and using the many techniques and approaches available. Games, songs and visual aids play a role in keeping the fun and time flies. I strive to maintain a balance with grammar, structure, verbs, vocabulary, pronunciation and conversation ability.

Original:
J'aime savoir quels sont les objectifs de mon élève. Ce qui les motive à vouloir apprendre une langue. J'essaie alors de discerner le niveau de langue et les capacités de mes futurs étudiants avant de créer mes plans de leçon afin de bâtir sur ce qu'ils savent déjà. J'utilise la méthode ESA (engager/étudier/activer) pour mes formats de classe. J'essaie de minimiser TTT (enseignant temps de parole) et augmenter STT (temps de conversation étudiant). Je me présente toujours avec un sourire, l'enthousiasme et l'énergie, ainsi que d'une approche professionnelle mais conviviale. J'apprécie l'importance de l'incitant (réflexion suscitant des questions) et en utilisant les nombreuses techniques et approches disponibles. Jeux, chansons et aides visuelles jouent un rôle dans le maintien de l'amusement et le temps passe rapidement. Je m'efforce de garder un équilibre avec la grammaire, la structure, les verbes, le vocabulaire, la prononciation et la capacité de conversation.

How can this program be improved?
The largest room in the world is the "room for improvement". But after all is said and done, I would say: "Well done ITTT!"

Helpful course with ITTT

I've just completed the 60-hour basic course. It was the first time I took a course online. The course gave me many practical information about what and how to teach. I also like the games suggestions in lesson 2. I have teaching experience, especially as a volunteer, so I could link what I learned in the course to my experience. This course is very helpful. This certificate will give me more opportunities. Thank you.

Best investment of my life yet

I recently took the 120-hour TEFL course and passed with flying colors! I actually enjoyed taking the online course with ITTT. It's perfect for a working mom like me where I can study in between breaks and or the weekends, practically accessible anytime, anywhere! The units are very detailed and precise. It's easy to follow because it's step-by-step. I'm happy I decided to take the course with ITTT, the tutor was (and still is) very helpful, the videos were also great, it's extra help in understanding the units better. So Thank you ITTT! And thank you to this website, gooverseas.com, the reviews here and my needs helped me decide on ITTT.

How can this program be improved?
Maybe an update on unit 17? Nowadays, CDs are like rarely used anymore. Never used cassette tapes teaching and I've been teaching for almost a decade now. The rest is simply great!
