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.


Unit 12 was about how to teach to speaking and writing skills. Generating interest with the students will be, I think, the hardest part of teaching. As we move through the units, I'm finding it harder to come up with original ideas for teaching topics. I know once I start teaching, there will be more of a flow. I really want to practice teaching in front of other students before I go overseas.Unit 16 introduces the basic rules and usage of conditionals and reported speech. Five conditionals are introduced. They are zero conditional, first conditional, second conditional, third conditional and mixed conditional. When using reported speech, we have pay special attention to the verb tense, pronouns and the changing of time expressions. Some teaching ideas are enlightening to new teachers.
