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.


Another very important grammar unit; so difficult to teach. The unit explained really well the details of each topic and the charts were great; a very useful resource. The only part I thought was too short was the phrasal verbs. I also could not understand or figure out question number 18, because according to the explanation, a pronoun was necessary between the verb and the particle. There were none in question 18.This unit was full of pretty intense grammar. It was good to look at how complex and adaptive phrasal verbs can be. It will be important to be ready for different problems that my arise with them. Modal verbs are another area that will surely be rather difficult as they stay the same throughout their various tense usage. A look into passive voice also reiterated how many ways sentences can be constructed in English.
