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.


I thought that this was a helpful lesson, but again i feel the test questions are very vague, and especially in an ESA class format there are multiple ways in which the order of the lesson plan can be structured. I think some of these questions shouldn't be just multiple choice answers but actually questions that assess the understanding of the material and not just reverberating the order of events.the Future tense is where we are going. My students need to have an idea for the future, and this unit will definitely help them. if one of my students makes an English speaking friend, they will need to know how to make plans with this person, and hopefully they will not have missed this unit. I believe that plans and predictions are important in speaking, how else would one meet up at a given time.
