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.


In unit 16 I reviewed the grammar topic conditionals and reported speech. It’s important to know how to distinguish conditional speech and what are the main conditionals, how they formed and when they used. Also interesting topic is how transforms direct speech into reported speech. It was very informative to have a look on ideas about how to teach this grammar topic in the classroom.In this unit, we studied future tense and usage of this tense. Future tense is more difficult than present and past tense because there are many ways to express future and talk about the future, this unit helps to teach the students the concept of future tense by teaching various exercise, ideas and activities. The present simple and present continuous tense may also use as a future tense.
