About Malaysia
Malaysia's cultural mosaic is marked by many different cultures, but several in particular have had especially lasting influence on the country. Chief among these is the ancient Malay culture, and the cultures of Malaysia's two most prominent trading partners throughout history--the Chinese, and the Indians. Although each of these cultures has vigorously maintained its traditions and community structures, they have also blended together to create contemporary Malaysia's uniquely diverse heritage.
Just visiting Malaysia - seeing a few sights, meeting its people, and eating good food - is more than enough to make for an unforgettable trip. Your best memory might be a quiet day you spend wandering the colonial streets of Malacca, or breathing in the earthy air of a kampung. Usually, it will be the Malaysians themselves you remember most, their smiles and generosity. That said, Malaysia also offers some very special activities, and if you make room for one or two of them, they will enhance your trip immeasurably.

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.


Future is one of most complex concept in English language. This unit only covers the most common 7 areas of Future tenses. Those are: Future simple, future cont., future perfect, future perfect cont., Be going + infinitive, present simple, present simple cont. For example, the be going + infinitive can be confused with present continuous. To see the difference we note that the be going + infinitive is always followed by a verb.This unit depicts the theories and methods of teaching as well as giving of evaluation. From this module, I learned some new techniques of teaching by giving activities to make learning fun. Because as to my experience, most of my students feel difficulty in learning English. Thereby they are not interested to the subject. I think with the use of different activities, lesson becomes more enjoyable and give more meaning to them.
