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.


I learned that it is good to think, beforehand, about what aspect of language to focus on in a lesson. You do not have to force a bunch of new vocabulary, grammar, and function all together at the same time. It is good to prioritize and focus what the takeaway should be for a lesson. This way you can organize what Engage, Study, and Activate activities to use to maximize exposure to and usage of the main topic of the day.This grammar unit is helpful because it uses many of the forms learned in the past and combines them with phrasal verbs. modal verbs and passive voice. Once again, these are concepts that we interact with everyday as native speakers however may not recognize them or know the terminology. I feel more confident to be able to explain to non native speakers these distinctions in the varying types of verbs and sentence formation.
