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.


Conditionals and reported speech are two aspects of English grammar that students find really hard to understand and use correctly. The problem is that students need to master verb tenses and grammar forms before attempting to use either the conditionals or the reported speech. The problem is that verb tenses change from one situation to another and this could prove to be a bit difficult to understand.I learned about the importance of Cross Culture at the start of this unit. I personally had a negative experience some years ago when I had my first learner from Japan. I was used to working with European learners only so it was a learning experience when I first had a Japanese learner. After that incident, my company provided us training on how to handle Asian learners especially from Japan and Korea.
