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.


This unit was interesting because it helped me achieve a greater understanding of planning a lesson with an EFL environment. It also helped me understand the importance of being flexible within a lesson and the different elements of planning that need to be considered. I found it difficult to differentiate the stages when answering the questions in the test but I think I got my head around it!Tense's are very complex and this unit has helped me to round out the all the tense's in the English language. i appreciated the explanation and the tips for ideas for lesson planning. and the explanation of some of the tenses being close in understanding and probably wise to teach them together so as the students don't get confused and they can see the clear difference between the two tenses.
