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.
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. .

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.

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!

Basic, Flexible, and Useful

I found the online TEFL course to be extremely beneficial, and the support staff to be courteous and helpful. The flexible hours worked well with my busy schedule as I could work around it. The organization of the course flowed smoothly and I was able to complete the course without any issues. The materials given were useful for actual lesson planning and I used in my own class when I went to teach English in South Korea.

Very happy

I was very happy of the course and it was a great experience. I didn’t use the tutor enough the first time but will be less stubborn now. Thanks for this Ittt.
It really helped me find a job in teaching and improved my lesson planning. My English lessons impacted my students learning and it has great examples.

I will recommend the course to everyone who wants to have a certificate and have more skills in teaching good English lessons.

What would you improve about this program?
Sometimes the questions are very tricky to understand.

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.

What would you improve about this program?
Larger database of employment opportunities.

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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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!

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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

What would you improve about this program?
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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.
