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 unit focused on reporting speeches from direct to indirect and the other way around. Also, it discussed and enumerated examples of conditionals used as part of the grammar section. I could say that one of its importance is to avoid confusion when we relay messages from one speaker to another, from a speaker to another listener and so on. As for the conditionals, it adds flavor on the grammar part.Whatever the level of class and however the teacher arranges the lesson, there are four things that students need to do with new language; be exposed to it, understand to its meaning, understand how it is constructed and be able to practice it and produce it. Grammar is often said to be the tree trunk and branches of a language while vocabulary and functions are the leaves that add beauty and variety.
