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!

Young Learner Course Review

I found the course fairly easy and a bit of a review since I have already been teaching in South Korea for the last 3+ years. But always useful are the tips and information on lesson planning and classroom control.

Even though I have prior international ESL teaching experience, I gained more knowledge from this course in how to become a better teacher for the young learners I have taught & continue to teach.

Learned a lot but worried about recognition

I did the 120h course with ITTT. I learned a lot and found it very motivating. But I am not sure I would choose this school again because I am worried about the course recognition. I maybe should have signed up to a course with the British embassy or from a recognized university.

It is still really worth it if recognition of the certificate is not an issue for you.

ITTT 120 Hour With Tutor Support and Videos Review

I would recommend this course to anyone interested in teaching English as a foreign language. The course content was relevant and it covered important aspects of teaching.

I learned a great deal. There were some things I knew and some I didn't have a clue about. Overall it was an invaluable experience.

The tutor support was great also.

How can this program be improved?
I didn't particularly like the videos, I thought them boring. The logo was big and blocked some of the content as times.

ITTT 120 Hour With Tutor Support and Videos Review

Let me start by saying that this is the first online course that I have attempted so I can't really comment on how this course stacks up against others out there. I can only speak from my own experience of the course.

I would have no problem recommending this course to anyone interested in getting involved in TEFL/TESOL. I found the course easy to use, with a clear layout and a simple, clean interface.

The content provided was a lot more detailed than I was expecting it to be. I found the difficulty of the course to be just about right for myself. Its never too challenging for a lay person to understand but its also never too simple either. I can imagine there being much harder courses out there for those looking for something more difficult.

The course also offered tutor support that I only really needed to use once. The response I received from the tutor was prompt and detailed.

There's is plenty of time (6 months) for you to complete the course. This gives you more than enough time to take it slow, absorb what you're learning and not feel pressured into rushing through the course.

At the end of the course you have to submit a lesson plan which they say will be graded within two days. I received confirmation that I had passed within 24 hours.

The cost of course was about $350 which I found to be fair. Not exactly a bargain but not too expensive either. I guess its a small investment you can make in yourself that could get you the teaching job you want.

How can this program be improved?
One criticism I would have is that the course only allows you access to some of the content and the rest is unlocked gradually as you complete the units in the course. I can understand why the course is designed this way but the reason I didn't like it was because on two occasions, the next units I needed to complete, did not open as they should have when I had completed the previous units. This was annoying and I had to contact their tech support by email to get it fixed twice. In their defense, they did fix the problem for me quickly ( within a few hours ).

Systematized learning

The 120 hr course perfectly cater to the needs of people who have teaching background and even those who have flair for teaching. Excellent course material has helped me to improve my teaching skills. My students always enjoy games suggested in unit 12. I recommend to my friends to go with this comprehensive program.

Very helpful

I have taken the 120 hr TESOL/TEFL certificate course + tutor support at ITTT and I am very pleased with it.

Well-organized lessons, good material, helpful videos and great tutoring when needed.

I highly recommend everyone who wants to get started a teaching career.

How can this program be improved?
I would change some videos recording. In some of them the quality of the image is quite poor or the sound recorded is not good enough to listen to.

Would highly recommend this course!

I took this course in 5 weeks, while maintaining a lot of other responsibilities. I learned some really good, important basics and appreciated the flexibility and simplicity of this course. It was well worth my time. While it may not teach as much as if you were in the classroom, it is great as far as online courses go.

How can this program be improved?
I can't think of anything right off the top of my head.

Phenomenal

I just finished the course because I want to teach English abroad and the only way to describe the program is phenomenal. It is so helpful with giving you insight on how to be the best teacher you can be. I highly advise it and assure you that after the program you will have the same reaction as me!

How can this program be improved?
Use a different application in the videos for unit 6. I could barely hear what the teacher was saying.

ITTT 120 hour TEFL Diploma and BE course

This online course far exceeded my expectations. I learned more, and was better supported and guided by my tutor, than on an in-house course at a world famous school which I took some years ago. The balance of theory and practice was perfect. The tips on classroom technique were down to earth, and the detailed material on lesson planning and teaching strategies were just what a new-comer to English teaching needs. I went straight from this course into teaching a range of students from five year olds, primary and secondary students, to university students and adults, including Thai teachers and a monk! I now teach in a primary school in northern Thailand. I have two hour classes with thirty very lively six to ten year olds, and keeping the noise level down when I don't speak Thai can be difficult. But the course has given me both the confidence, and a large number of strategies for teaching conversational English, which is what the children need and want most. The ITTT online course was some of the best money I've spent.

How can this program be improved?
I have very little critical feedback. When I did the course I wondered if the role play techniques would work with shy Thai people, but they work amazingly well, and are a refreshing contrast to the large amount of book learning they get in school. I enjoyed the BE course too, though, as someone who's never worked in a business environment I had to swat up on business language and situations, which I found very interesting.

Just what I needed.

I completed the ITTT TEFL course some time ago and it has been really useful. The materials were concise and well laid out, a good refresher of grammar as well as some great teaching and planning skills. My tutor was always quick to respond and the feedback was always useful, and well explained. I paid for the DVDs but didn't really use them, but I've kept them for an update down the track. My employment has been in Australian indigenous communities and I've used many of the ideas provided in the course, especially the suggested websites. I look forward to one day teaching in an international TEFL setting.

How can this program be improved?
I would encourage more online and interactive resources that can be used in the classroom. Some suggestions for apps would be valuable.

So glad I invested in this course!

I took both the TEFL and TBE courses online, on a full-time basis, as I wanted to obtain my certification as quickly as possible. At first, I was concerned about studying online, as I had never done so before, but I am so glad I did!

The TEFL course was excellent - easily laid out in manageable modules, with clear explanations on the grammar and teaching methods. In spite of trying to achieve my goal of one module per day, I never felt overwhelmed - my tutor was an inspiration and always positive in her feedback and guidance. Even with the time zone difference between us (I am in France), I never felt as though I had to wait for answers to my questions, or for my assignments to be marked - she was incredibly fast and efficient, and always took the time to write full explanations of points I had missed or needed to elaborate on.

I would definitely recommend this course to anyone considering enrolling in an online TEFL course. I have nothing but positive things to say about the course and the tutor! Everything was provided - course materials, CD-ROM, etc. - so there were no additional 'hidden' expenses! The administrative support team were just as helpful as my tutor and both my certificates arrived quickly following the completion of the courses. My tutor also helped me with job-hunting tips and advice even after I had finished my studies.

If you're willing to put the effort in and give 100% to this course, you will find your tutor will give you all the help you need to make this course interesting, fun and an excellent step towards a new career!

How can this program be improved?
I thoroughly enjoyed the TBE certificate course (Teaching Business English) which followed on from the TEFL course. However, it was not as easy to follow as the TEFL course and I found it a little more difficult, perhaps because the materials were a little less 'in-depth' than with the TEFL course. It was still highly enjoyable and a really good 'extra' to have though!

Awesome TEFL Program

I found the TEFL program very good, covering every aspect of English grammar and lesson planning. Maybe it's just because I've always LOVED grammar, but I found this course really exciting. Not only was it fun and challenging, but it was also very informative and thorough. Additionally, my tutor was really helpful and answered every question I had. I was really, really happy with the program and I never hesitate to recommend it to everybody I meet!

How can this program be improved?
If I could change one thing about this program, it would be the CTBE (Business English) program. Although I passed, I found it very difficult and at times discouraging. In my opinion, there was not enough explanation of business terminology, and the questions on the test were a bit sketchy and interpretive.

Great program

I am a 55 year old missionary that wanted to get my certification where we could add teaching English to our ministry program. The course was great, and I learned a lot, my online tutor was great and very thorough with explaining any questions I had. My only complaint, if you want to call it that, was the lack of explanations for all that grammar. I know because of my age I struggled with the grammar sections and had to do a LOT of online research to fully understand. If you are right out of college or of a younger age you will probably not have any problems.

How can this program be improved?
Just add some more detailed explanations of grammar. Not everyone is just out of college.

Really thorough

At first, I struggled to get a handle on just how specific the program needed me to be. Often, I provided incomplete lesson plans, or deviated from the topic. But my instructor's feedback was always very detailed and clearly communicated. I had zero teaching experience before, so the program provided me with the necessary planning skills to do my work thoroughly once I arrived in Korea. Lesson plans are usually the first thing your employer will ask for. The certificate also bumped me into a higher salary bracket.

How can this program be improved?
The source material could have been made more appealing. For the most part, it read like someone's transcribed class notes.
