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.

 

The future tense is very difficult to learn due to its many different tenses. There are 7 common tenses however we tend to use 2 more frequently; the present continuous and ‘going to’ future tense. I find distinguishing between all of the different tenses difficult at times because each tense has specific usages. This is an area that I will need to work on if I pass this course and become a foreign language teacher.Lesson planning is crucial to the success of anyone who wants to give class regardless of the capability of the class. The unit is pretty descriptive of what is kept record off in general and the use of this information. I dont know if most schools give guidelines of what is expected, since it reflects on them, but I feel it important to be able to operate independently so that you as a teacher is prepared for any situation.
