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 covers some obstacles that you may encounter when you start teaching, like having a class with students who have different language levels, students using their native language and Large classes. It explains what to do on your first lessons. It also gives us, like in the previous units , techniques, activities, warmers, different materials to use according to the level of the students.After learning the other grammar units (present and past) this unit seemed to be a lot easier. There were a lot more concepts that than the past 2 grammar units, but this unit built on the ideas we touched on in the last two. I think that this unit is something a lot of teachers will use when they are doing activities, because many activities use a future tense when using imaginary situations.
