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.


Teaching aids are very important in every lesson not only in the english language but all other subjects.It helps teachers to teach with eases and aids learners in understanding complex topics when used appropriately.This topic has opened up on some examples of teaching aids,its use and the advantages teachers and learners stand to gain in using them.In all this topic has been very usefulThis was one of the most confusing chapters so far. This is a chapter that prior taking this course I thought I knew well. Nevertheless, This chapter did serve as a great review. As a native/fluent speaker sometimes we do not pay attention about the exact point in time when conjugating a verb. Although this is a chapter review, I would like to recommend that you add timelines to the text.
