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 this unit I learned about conditionals. Conditionals are grammatical structures. It is very important for effective instructors to teach student about grammatical structures, especially conditionals. Now that I have studied the lesson, I will apply what I have learned to improve my teaching and become a stronger teacher. If I am to be a good teacher, I must understand conditionals!Unit 18 completes our coverage of English grammar by looking at a range of other commonly taught subjects. The unit looks closely at the importance of modal verbs in English communication and also covers phrasal verbs, the passive voice and relative clauses. I learnt the basic rules and usages of modal auxiliary verbs, passive voices and relative clauses that can be used to the lessons.
