Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


In unit 6, I learned that the subject of past tenses might be difficult for students to grasp. This is because it involves one of the main tenses English speakers must use. Additionally, there may be some confusion the irregular past simple verbs; such as catch. In order for the students to be successful on this subject I must prepare well before class and be clear when explaining the past tense.Classroom management is the skill of organizing and managing the class, having a friendly, relaxed manner and maintaining discipline. It is important for teachers to maintain eye contact, use gestures and maintain good voice control. Eye contact is important as teachers who never look in the eyes of student might not appear confident and such might not be able to command discipline from students.
