Review 110 of 114 ITTO
I am so thankful for my training at ITTO in Guadalajara. After successfully completing the course, I received several job offers to teach English and obtained my current job. I feel strongly that the face to face course was instrumental in preparing me for my current position and my employer has commented on my level of confidence and competence. I have recommended ITTO to several colleagues who asked me about my experience. They completed their TEFL course online and are interested in taking a face to face course in the future.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to the administration at ITTO. Thank you for all you have done to make my transition to teaching English in Mexico so successful.
Review 109 of 114 ITTO
I am extremely disappointed in the quality, responsiveness and reliability of the online job resources provided by ITTO. Many of the companies’ websites were down and some had application technology that was unusable/unavailable. I am also disappointed in the opportunities actually available versus those promised on ITTO’s site. I put a great deal of time and effort into the 140-hour certification course. I’m fairly certain my time and money have been wasted.

Wow! What an experience.
Rest assured the ITTO team will equip you to become an individual, competent, confident, thoughtful and professional TEFL teacher. You will experience tremendous personal growth while observing your colleagues doing the same. It’s amazingly empowering.
From the moment I arrived at ITTO I felt welcome. It was immediately apparent that we were going to be challenged, our thinking stretched and our minds expanded. Our teacher, Mr Del Alto is simply an amazing educator. The standard of education exceeded my expectations and the relationships I formed with the wonderfully supportive staff and fellow students is something that I will always remember.
The 22 hours of classroom time, made up of teaching classes, one to one experiences and observation of experienced professionals, coupled with daily microteaching to our peer group, has equiped me to start my career with confidence while the unique commitment by ITTO to finding graduates a paid position, has been invaluable.
Review 107 of 114 ITTO
For me the highlight of the course and the area which prepared me for teaching the most was the practical experience I gained whilst teaching in the classroom. I also benefited from having excellent teacher support on assignments and preparing for lessons. The area which could be improved upon is during the class instruction before lunchtime. I feel the lessons would have benefited more from being more interactive, also more ideas and tools for teaching grammar. A substitute teacher covered one morning to oversea us teaching our colleagues grammar. He was very informative and gave consgructive criticism and ideas on how to teach this effectively. I would have benefited greatly from having more instruction on how to teach grammar effectively. I felt when we gave our grammar lessons to our colleagues, we weren’t critically assessed sufficiently. It was a great course for a first time teacher like myself, however for those with more prior teaching experience, it lacked ideas and tips on actual teaching techniques and how to improve etc.

Overall I thought the course was well structured and very beneficial to me, though it was far from perfect. I benefited from a small class size (5) during my month and have a hard time imagining what it would be like when it’s full, though we can assume a bit less personal attention. Pros: Feedback on practice teaching, which was the highlight of the course for me, was very constructive and helped me greatly improve my teaching chops. I came out the other side as a much, much better teacher. The people who run ITTO are also very nice people and there for you if you need something. Cons: some of the material was a bit outdated or unhelpful, especially the job search booklet and the time we spent simulating a job search. A couple classes seemed forced and unnecessary, and in my current job search experience it’s really just “here are some companies we know about in the country you want to work in, good luck!”
I really enjoyed my time in the program and learned a lot in a fairly work-intense month, but I think the course could be tweaked a little to accommodate more modern methods and material.
Review 105 of 114 ITTO
The practice teaching was incredible. The feedback from the teachers at IMAC helped me to improve my teaching abilities. The students at IMAC were wonderful.
I did not enjoy the teaching style of the original instructor of the TEFL course instructor. She talked too much and was defensive when the class asked her questions. She also frequently let the student out late for breaks. However, the second professor was great. I enjoyed his teaching style and I knowledge of the English language.
The TEFL book I did not find helpful. It was wordy and boring.
The job placement program was out of date and felt forced on me. I had interviews set up before I was consulted. The websites given to us to look for jobs were not helpful. I had lots of success on indeed.com and craigslist.org, neither of which were mentioned in job training.
Overall I think the course material was not very helpful. However, the teaching training, the second and instructor, and the administration were terrific.
Review 104 of 114 ITTO
Very great school. Very helpful staff. However I think the school should invest in bigger desks and not advertise things that are not included like the salsa dancing and guitar lessons.
Review 103 of 114 ITTO
Very good course and helped me obtain a teaching job once I had finished the course. The content of the books could be a little better but the practice teaching was great and I enjoyed the course and the feedback I got from my observers and instructor.
Review 102 of 114 ITTO
The ITTO Guadalajara Tefl course was intense but it was worth every second of it. I really left on the last day feeling ready to work here in Mexico. The teaching practices and class observations are a very hands-on form of training from which you learn a lot in such a short period of time. I would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about working as a teacher here in Mexico.

I have taken the course 120-hours TELS with ITTO. The course was challenging, stimulating and informative. I also like the structure of the course, it was well-organized and easy to use. I am happy that I have chosen the course 120-hours TESL with ITTO.
I would like to thank my English tutor Susan Gammage. Susan has been very helpful, supportive and sociable person. She has given me feedback very quickly with brilliant suggestions about my teaching skills and I appreciate it so much! I am very thankful that I have had a chance to meet such a wonderful tutor.
