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.


There are so many resources available to teachers. Some classes offer so many up-to-date learning aides, where others seem to be so far behind the times. Either situation has to be dealt with accordingly. It is nice to see the options and alternatives provided in this lesson. I totally agree that classroom setup is a major factor no matter what resources are available to the teacher.This unit was a good review of the basic components of language. It served as a good, simple refresher in order to verify knowledge (it has been 30 years since I was in high school). I found the unit to be logically laid out, and think it concisely covered the right amount of detail. I will be interested to see how the follow-on units tackle subjects such as determination articles.
