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.


There are many different present tenses that students can easily confuse. It's good to be prepared and informed of the tenses so that I can correctly teach my students and not confuse them. Also, comparing it to the tenses in spanish would be good to know. It would be helpful to use one of the recommended activities to make sure students understand different situations to use the tenses.Earlier we said that tenses deal with time and the past tense most often possess a very big problem to students or English learners.This accounts for the grammatical mistakes which they often make. They sometimes just jumble up the past tense and the present tense when narrating an action that had already taken place in the past.In this unit one learns how these mistakes can be corrected.
