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 covers the subject of modal auxiliary verbs, including their usages, ideas for presenting them in the classroom and some difficulties that they can cause for both students and teachers. It also covers the passive voice, including its comparison to the active voice, its usages and a selection of teaching ideas that can be used to practice a student’s understanding of the subject in the classroom.This unit provides two very different classroom examples. These clearly illustrate how attitude can affect lesson outcomes. While in the first video the teacher repeats himself when students don’t understand concepts, in the second video, the teacher uses examples, encourages and provides feedback. He also develops a level of trust with students over the course of the lesson and inject fun into the lesson.
