iTTi PARTNERS & TRAINERS
You must be at least 18 years old and proficient in both English speaking and writing.
Yes, you can! Students who are not native English speakers must demonstrate proficiency in English at the C1 level or higher. B2 can be accepted with proof of participation in additional English classes.
Yes, you can. You will have to talk to an admissions counselor.
We’ll send you your invoice again to make the balance payment about two weeks before the teaching practicum.
Our teacher trainees come from all continents (except Antarctica). We had, however, a trainee who works in the U.S. Antarctic Team and wanted to teach English during the Arctic winter.
Yes, it is. You have or you are about to register for the 120-Hour Combined TEFL Certification program. This is the best program after the four-week in-class course for standard teacher training, The teaching practicum and the project work make this course an asset to your resume/CV. This type of course is required for work visa applications in many countries. Of course, you can work under the table; however, you won’t get the benefits associated with a work visa: health care, paid vacation, year-end bonus, housing support, free airfare, etc. So why not make the right investment from the start? If the desired teaching opportunity shows up, you are ready to take it.
Our course trainers are highly educated individuals with years of English-teaching experience. They hold masters’ degrees (even PhD’s) in teaching English as a foreign language.
Apart from a TESOL Manual and the Workbook, we also use textbooks that you will find in master programs at acclaimed colleges in New York (as an example). We can confidently say that our graduates are absolutely compatible with graduates coming from formal colleges.
The Teaching Practicum starts at 9:00 am. First, we review the lesson plans for the day. Our student-teachers make adjustments according to the feedback.
At 10:00 am, the teaching practice starts. Our teacher trainees are busy delivering their classes. After the teaching, we have a 15-minute coffee break. We continue by giving feedback about the individual performance and by coaching to improve performance.
Lunch break is between 1:00 and 2:00 pm. After lunch, we work on projects. The class preparation for the next day is between 3:30 or 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
You will get performance ratings for the teaching part. In addition, there are tests in methodology, grammar, and phonology in which you have to achieve a score of 70. You will also get evaluated for your performance as a team member.
We are not running these courses to fail people. We are running them to show our graduates that they can be very successful in their chosen career. If you fail a test, you will get additional study time and material. You will redo the test a week later.
Please tell us at the time of registration that you wish to obtain a hard-copy certificate. We will make it available at an extra cost.
Yes, we will. Apart from resume and cover letter preparation assistance, we will provide you with school lists, recruiter information or actual job leads as they reach our school. iTTi is a global organization. We have schools in many countries. As a result, we have local connections in many countries that can assist us in locating employment opportunities.
Yes, it is. You can always come back later to ask for support.
