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 fairly hard for me to understand. I thought that the explanation between authentic and non-authentic was very short and really brief. I think that if the lesson had a better introduction regarding those two topics, other parts of the lesson would have been easier to understand. Overall, I found this lesson tricky for me but was able to still understand the basic concept of the lesson.In this unit we covered the use of future and present tense in sentences. It is important to make sure that you are using the correct tense when speaking so that your meaning is clear and understandable. Using the incorrect tense can lead to misunderstandings. For instance, if you are discussing a carpool plan with a colleague you want to be sure that all involved parties know where to be and when.
