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.


During this unit, a lot of interesting materials and ideas were provided, such as how to teach the English Language to different target groups or individuals or beginners either young or older age. The specific methods, as well as the information, provided enriched my knowledge on how to teach more efficiently and effectively. It was one of the best units ever had during my studies.Unit 18 Modals, Phrasal verbs and Passive voice discuss about the definition and the form of modals, phrasal verbs and passive voice. This unit also provides different examples and explain the usage of each. I can see that this is one of complex discussion in English language and must be taught with activities that practice correct application for the students to comprehend properly.
