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 is quite difficult in part of Phrasal Verbs. I always have many problems with their using and sometimes even understanding. I think this Grammar material is the most hard for many foreigners to study because of great range of their meanings and particular using. As for me I believe that the phrasal verbs are very hard to teach as well. After studying this Unit I rewise Grammar once again and it seems to be of big use.The unit is about classroom management-It is a skill of organizing and managing a class and having friendly and relaxed manner and maintaining discipline.I have learnt that as a teacher i need to use simple language, use visual clues, etc in giving instructions. I have also learnt that as a teacher in order to maintain discipline in the class depends on factors such as age of students, respect between teacher and students, etc.
