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 topic i learnt alot about modal auxillary verbs and how they are used to express possibilities,obligation,advise, permission, through some basic rules.i also learnt the different types of modal auxillary verbs and how to correctly use them to teach learners.i also learnt about passive and active voices and how to use them.i also learned on phrasal verbs which is usually challenging to understand and must be taught well.One of the most important factors that an ESL teacher needs to consider at the beginning of the course is to take the time to get to know the students' learning styles. This will help to select the correct strategies and materials to engage the students with the content. It helps the effectiveness of the course when students (children or adults) feel that the class is well organized and offers activities that are interesting.
