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 unit, as in the unit about the Present Tenses, I found extremely valuable information on tenses: their structure and usage are explained here both briefly and fully. What I liked the most is that there are given examples of common mistakes and errors that may occur. Moreover, this unit provided me with several very interesting ideas for activities that can be used to practice the Past tenses.The equipment and aids subject has reminded me the situations good and bad that I had when teaching. Sometimes there is something wrong , or the equipment you asked for is not available.The topic has been useful to be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of the resources used for ESL teaching.Now I have more resources and tools to make an effective lesson. Its always good to learn something new.
