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.


I thought grammar wasn't easy to teach. After this unit,I know we can't only focus on grammar but can't ignore that. I already know a bit abou nouns,verbs,adjectives and adverbs. But I still learned a lot about some types of nouns,like proper nouns and abstract. Different verb tenses,gerounds prepositions are all important for me to understand. Then I can help students in better way.Meeting a class for the first time is one of the most important moments for a teacher: everything you will do, say or teach will be part of their education forever. So, taking the time to collect information about your students, establish rapport and understand needs and aspiration of them all is the least you can do. It may take time, but it will prove worth in the following lessons.
