The purpose of this first unit is to provide an overview of and an introduction to the course. You will find full details of the course contents as well as information on how the course is organized, how to complete it successfully and how to proceed through the course.

The ITTT course is unique for an online course as it enables graduates to receive ongoing career support and teacher development long after completion and provides an opportunity to see 'real' lessons through our online videos.

We believe that you will find this course of great benefit as you embark upon a career in TEFL.

Thank you once again for choosing International TEFL and TESOL Training.

Upon completion of the course, graduates should have acquired a good working knowledge of the English grammatical and phonology systems as well as an awareness of the skills and techniques required for successful language teaching.

and techniques required for successful language teaching. While the course is both theoretical and knowledge- based,

While the course is both theoretical and knowledge- based, we also give participants the maximum opportunity to reflect on the course content, and on the processes of learning and teaching a foreign language. We have tried to make this course as practical as possible with the help of the video, but as with most things practice makes perfect.

We recommend that while studying the course you try to arrange to observe experienced teachers at a local language school. You may even get an opportunity to act as the teacher's assistant or to give a supervised lesson yourself! Maybe you have some friends that are not native speakers of English who you could practice on. The more practice you can get at the start of your teaching career the better.

Ideally, you might want to give one or two supervised lessons yourself, and receive feedback from an experienced teacher afterwards. If you are ever able to video record one of your lessons, we would be happy to look at it and give you our comments.

After you have successfully completed the course, you will also be given details of how you could attend one of our training centers where a trainer would watch you teach several lessons to local students of English, and offer constructive feedback afterwards.

Introductory Unit How the course works The course has been designed to allow for maximum flexibility.

The course has been designed to allow for maximum flexibility. You can work at a pace that suits you, as long as you complete the course within six months of receiving your login details. The time remaining will always be displayed at the top of each page.

In order to get the maximum benefit from the course we recommend working on one unit per day. This will allow you to complete the course in under three weeks and will also give you time to understand and digest the lesson fully before continuing. However, if you wish to work through the course more quickly, or slowly, the choice is yours.

Our online courses are designed to be as user-friendly as possible. To move comfortably through the course, simply follow these straightforward steps for each unit:
