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.


The unit was very useful as it has taught me alot about Teachers and Leaners I have noticed that in a class you might have to use different roles at once not only sticking to one role, for example one can play the role of Teacher as a facilitator and also as observer so a teacher is not only limited to one role. Also what makes a good teacher is smiling not always sad and angry, don't intimidate students.In most cases, many ideas are used to express the future because of it’s complexity. However, this unit explains in details future tense in It’s seven most common ideas. The seven areas of future term are discussed in detail including their forms, how there are used, common mistakes made by students and the teaching ideas. This study has generally and greatly improved my knowledge on future tense.
