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 on the past tenses gave me a good overview of past simple, past continuous, past perfect and past perfect continuous. It gave me a good overview of form , usage and examples of how to use the past tense in the activate stage. It also hit home that as a teacher it's probably sound to have the irregular verbs memorized. The unit also gave me suggestions on how to spot student errors and mistakes.The information provided in the present unit was very useful since many new ideas were presented as well as helpful information considering the classroom consistency and operation. Few mistakes used by the old teaching methods in many schools were presented during this particular unit, however, some solutions are thoroughly provided. Indeed helpful tips were provided, so would help me in the near future.
