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!

120 Hour Online Course with Tutor support

Though I am a teacher with a little experience and the course is primarily designed for people with no experience and little to no prior knowledge of language teaching, I found this course to be very comprehensive in getting someone prepared for TEFL/TESOL.
The course's quality, approach and perspective helps people like me because there are units that are great review, there are also new things to be learned and practiced, and reminders of existing weaknesses we may have. The course itself and the teaching ideas offer a solid foundation for inspiration and personal improvement. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to get started. I also recommend it to those with some language teaching experience to get some review because sometimes our work environment might channel our teaching techniques in a particular direction and make our approach less broad or flexible, and we therefore need to assess our strengths and weaknesses.

How can this program be improved?
My suggestion is similar to one I've already seen for the courses with tutor support.
The task sheets are good assignments and very relevant to their respective units. There is a lot of lesson planning required through the course, but there is no way for the student to get any feedback for their assignments and lesson plans; especially the lesson plans which are based on sample worksheet content provided as part of the study unit.
I think it would be excellent for the student if all of the task sheets could be assessed, but even two or three assessments spaced through the course would make the course better than it already is. I think more than one assessment would help to keep students motivated and on track as it would set clear time and study achievement goals, and improve iTTT's already high reputation.

Great Courses

I've completed the basic 120-hour course and the course in teaching business English. Both curriculums were excellent. This courses actually helped me in my doctoral program in adult education.

A great program!

This was an excellent program for someone who is desiring a TESOL/
TEFL certificate and has had little to no experience. The layout, organization, presentation, explanation, and examples were very well done. It was all easy to follow and complete. And the additional helps (lesson plans, connections, job searching, etc.) after completion of the course were an added plus. I have done quick of bit of TESOL teaching but never acquired a certificate. I found this course a good review and solidification, and a relatively painless way to get the certificate I desired. Thank you ITTT for a job well done.

How can this program be improved?
I would've have liked to have been able to do more than 3 lessons per day.

Business Course 50 hours

I took the Business Course after I had finished TESOL course a while ago and I wanted to continue with the same group of professionals that I had worked before so I applied for Business Course and Teaching Children. I have just finished Business, and I feel much more confident before I could start my group of Business this semester. Thank you! Looking forward to starting the next course!

It is good in its own way.

120-hour TEFL/TESOL with Video and Tutor Support

I was at first very skeptical of using an online course for TEFL training; however, the costs of classroom instruction were far out of my budget. As a native English speaker and student of foreign languages myself, I have sought teaching English as a way to help others learn the English language the way in which I have learned foreign languages. The 120-hour TEFL course offered by ITTT has been very comprehensive and often times provides cumulative knowledge from start of the course to the end. Starting from little to no knowledge of the field to completing the course, my confidence in my knowledge and ability to teach have skyrocketed, and I am very happy I chose to talk this online course.

How can this program be improved?
If there was a way to submit responses to the task sheets or at least to submit lesson plans throughout the course for feedback, this would be the perfect course. The layout of the course already facilitates learning in a well-rounded way, especially with the video instruction; however, I believe it would be very beneficial for all ITTT's students to have the option of receiving feedback steadily throughout the course on top of the tests that are already required.

120 hour course

I have been working as an English Teacher in Brazil for 14 years and one of my goals is always to do my best to keep myself up-to-date concerning teaching methods and the language itself. Then, I chose this course hoping to have some fresh ideas. I got it!
The course is well-designed, dealing with the reality we teachers face on a daily basis.
I strongly recommend it!

How can this program be improved?
Maybe, include more videos to be studied showing do's and don'ts in a classroom.

Excellent course

I enjoyed the course although I was surprised that it was more challenging than expected which is a very good thing. Online courses are often watered down and easy to complete while this one makes you think and work and you actually learn something. This course has a lot of practical applications for many of the more challenging theoretical topics. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to teach English abroad.

I took the 120 hour online tefl course with no tutor support

I found the course pretty convenient and easy, it covered most of the major grammer points in the English language in a clear yet detailed approach and it included quite usufel information about how to deal with different cultures, age groups and language command levels inside a classroom along with how to make the classroom a fun and entertaining teaching enviroment through using various activities rather than just a usual boring language class. The online system throughwhich i studied and filled in my tests was very convenient, clear and had no techincal issues. The lesson plan was a practical implementation of all the knowledge gained during the course and it's feedback was constructive and clear.

How can this program be improved?
I could be further imporved through including more tricky and indirect questions in the tests.

120 hours course

I have only good words to say about my tutor and TTT's staff. Both, have replied to me in less than 24 hours by e-mail. As far as the course is concern, despite its simplicity, it's a very logical, concise and enjoyable program for any non-native English speaker, considering a teaching career. I highly recommend this course! ... Sebastian.

250hours TESOL course on line

Hi,
I found this course quite helpful and as good as many others which where not offered on line but with tutor. Studying at my own peace is what have made it possible for me to keep studying.
The experience has been great and really interesting. So much that I did the young learners course too and I am considering to take the business one in order to complete the specialisations.
Thanks for your support and guidance.
Sincerely
Julia

More examples when reading through the theory would be of a great help.

Ittt 120 hour course

I enjoyed learning the information in the course. I was surprised how detailed the work is and how much we need to know to teach English as a second language. The first few units took much longer to study but then they became much easier. i found the videos very helpful and would definitely recommend choosing the course with videos. I had a tutor also but did not use the tutor. The course took about 5 months but that was leaving a lot of time in between. I could have done it a lot quicker. Each unit is well structured and the way they are sequenced gives variety and interest to the course.

How can this program be improved?
I was unaware of having to plan a lesson as the last requirement and thought I had finished after completing the last test. Being informed of this would have been helpful.

120 hrs course

Having a busy life this course was ideal for me, being able to do the lessons during the spare time I had. I struggeld with the grammer but the information given was clear (my brain was not always!) I now have more confidence in teaching english and hope to start within a few months in China.

How can this program be improved?
That is difficult to say, but.....it is all theoretical. Would be good to one or two lessons in front of a classroom. But I realise that it is not easy for you to realise.

Do not waste your money!!!!

I have nothing nice to say about this course. I signed up for the 120 hour course with a tutor and was promised an additional free young learners course. The course suggested each unit should take 5hours and a total of 20 units. I skimmed the first unit and realized it was a joke. I completed all 20 units in a week with a 99% and did not read any of the material. The material was common sense for anyone who has ever set foot in any classroom. On top of this I repeatedly email tutors and never once was replied to. Finally I emailed the administration to complain and was informed they had a technical glitch. I requested a refund for the cost of the tutor and they never replied. Then I asked about the free course I was originally promised and again I was never answered. This course is a waste and they are a dishonest honest company.

Response from ITTT TEFL

We’re sorry to hear that you “have nothing nice to say about this course”.

First, please bear in mind that ITTT certificate courses are fundamentally designed for people who have little or no teaching experience.

As we explained to you via email, there was a technical problem that prevented the contact forms that you submitted reaching your course tutor, for which we apologised. At no stage during your course did you email us direct to ask why you hadn’t received a response to the tutor contact forms you had submitted. We’re unsure why you state that you didn’t receive a reply to your request for a refund, as we responded to you within four hours of your emailing us on 12th June, and you replied to that email.

You have since received the complimentary course in teaching English to young learners.

It’s disappointing that your experience with ITTT was far from ideal, but we feel that the other reviews here are a more genuine reflection of the feelings of past course participants.

We wish you all the best for the future.

120 hour course

I took two months on this course and I found it awesome! Right from the fares charged to the course materials and guidance given. I already had an experience of teaching other subjects, but the ittt course has added quite a lot in my teaching. The explanations given in each course unit are direct and self explanatory, that I suppose that even if you've never taught before, you can easily learn because the content is so direct. I gained so much from the teaching methods given, and the way of classroom controlling. The ideas I have got from this course have helped me so much in handling my classes, both the TEFL and social studies classes.
I all along thought that I teaching English as a foreign language was a walk over since I am a native English speaker, but the challenges I was brought in light about were completely spectacular. I knew how to teach tenses, but I couldn't fully explain the usage of such tenses. Thanks God I was able to learn from the program and I am now teaching English with confidence, and very ready to give a firm explanation if a student had a problem.
The online tutor was helpful in responding and the quality of the response was satisfactory.
The lesson planning part was so good that it really prepares one for the field.

How can this program be improved?
The inclusion of other parts of English like comprehension and summary writing other than just focusing on grammar writing could also be beneficial to students in this program as it could have been to me.

Very motivating and affordable course, immediate and helpful support.

I've done the 120-hour online TEFL course and I've been very happy with it. I've studied Languages and I have four years of teaching experience, thus the course did not surprise me with the level of difficulty. It took me only 2 weeks to complete it.
Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed the units focused on teaching, class management etc. It was really nice to get back on track with all that knowledge after a 2-year break in teaching. I particularly liked writing lesson plans as the self-evaluation tasks.
Moreover, whenever I had a problem, the reaction on the support center side was immediate and very helpful. ITTT provides you with a lot of additional materials and some nice surprises at the end of the course. That was definitely a pleasant and unexpected bonus.
My only worry is the recognition given to this course. CELTA seems to be the first preference among all the employers and I will surely do it at some point in the future. However, TEFL from ITTT is a much cheaper option and it prepares you rather well to become a teacher, especially if you have previous teaching/linguistic preparation. It puts you on the ELT market and serves as and incentive to continue learning (CELTA next!).
