For those of you who have had the chance to visit or live in Shanghai, one thing presents itself as extremely pervasive, that is of course the rate in which this city is constantly being redefined. Similar to what Tokyo went through in the early 1980's or even what Seoul went through in the early 90s, Shanghai is undoubtedly entering a phase in its history where it is "presenting and emerging itself within the world spectacle". Globalization and trends of westernization are literally at an all time high, and the people of Shanghai are gearing up to adjust and prepare themselves for these seemingly monumental shifts. Language is at the forefront of these changes, acting not only as tool for communication, but also as a means of upward mobility both in life and at work.

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 proves that the teachers needs to be well prepared for the lesson prior to commencing the class. It is very important and crucial for the students and the teacher to have good rapport when engaging in speaking and writing activities. The instructor should be very attentive during the writing lessons and should make sure to differentiate whether the tactic used would be a controlled or guided tactic.Reported speech and the conditionals is often confused by students because of its strange nature. Sometimes they relate it to their native language, claiming that it doesn't exist (in that language), but it often does, same goes to conditionals, especially because when past tenses are used it confuses students. This unit shows a very useful guide to help them realize and give them a scheme about how it works.
