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.


Managing classes or classroom management does not only apply to teaching a class. The principles also apply when performing other related function such as conducting meetings, training,workshops and seminars. As a facilitator for learning,teachers are expected to deliver clarity, enthusiasm and confidence when teaching.Effective teaching skills can be developed by practice and continuing learning.This unit gives explanation and examples about conditionals and reported speech. From this unit I learned many things about how to form conditionals and reported speech, I also learned about some common errors that sometimes happened. Back in school I used to learned this topic too but not deeply, now through this unit I know how to teach it and gained better understanding than my previous studying.
