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 refreshed my current knowledge of present tenses. Although many of the rules are basic common knowledge for native speakers when talking, to stop and describe the rules in simple terms can be difficult. From the outset it can look very confusing and it has made me think of simple ways in which to break it down and explain it if I was presenting this in a classroom environment.In this unit, the different types of words used in the English language were discussed and the classifications for each were stated. I learnt the relationship between different classifications of words and how they fit together to inform sentence structure. I also learnt that there are many irregularities with the English language that cannot necessarily be explained with a simple rule.
