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 this Unit, the roles and functions of grammar, language and vocabulary were discussed. The unit also introduced the importance of the grammar, language and vocabulary to an English learner. In addition, the Straight Arrow, Boomerang and the Patchwork lesson styles were reintroduced throughout the Unit. Vocabulary selection and techniques were also highlighted throughout the Unit.By covering this unit I learned about direct speech as well as conditionals. These are not very well known by the common English speaker and it was good to gain a further knowledge of these topics. I learned about the different sentence structures that zero-mixed conditionals consist of and how to apply them as well as the changes from regular to reported speech based on the tenses.
