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 is short and precise, which helps with memorizing the necessary material quicker. The bonus part of the unit as I see it is the ideas of how this material could be implemented in the teaching process. The disadvantage of the unit, in my opinion, is a very brief description of the Present Perfect tense. I think it could be described in a more precise and deployed manner. Other than that, I am happy with the course. Thank you.I have gained a basic understanding of the different modalities of teaching, the different levels of students one may tech based on age range and level of knowledge and how a teacher may adapt to each level, based on this understanding. I learned what makes a good teacher and inevitably what would make a bad one, and that lies in how the teacher engages with students and how they can access the students understanding of the language.
