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 focused on two different receptive skills, listening and reading. We learnt about the different reasons to read or listen to something, whether it be for a purpose like learning new information, or pleasure like catching up on your favorite sports team. We also learned about different specialist skills that can apply to different traits such as predicting what will happen and skimming some information.The important information to remember is that modal auxiliary verbs are used to add meaning to main verbs. They can convey obligation, possibility, permission, ability or advice. Using phrasal verbs throughout a class session can be useful as it gives repetition and therefore retention of the use. Using topics that are familiar or interesting to students is useful in gaining interest and also gains retention.
