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.


This unit explained clearly the four types of present tense and how and when to use them. It gave ideas of how explain these types to the students in ways that make them don't feel confused about them. It also provided very good list about the irregular verbs. The unit gave a lot of examples about teaching ideas and their usages to avoid confusion between the types of present tense.The unit discusses basic pedagogy and student centered learning. It gave good examples of positive teacher practices. These are practices I attempt to employ as a history teacher, and I am sure they are just as important to language learning. I also learned about about how language levels are broken down. I think they are good definitions for the various levels of language learning.
