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.


Learning the twelve tenses could be quite daunting. Even for native speakers, we might not be so versed as to what the names of each of these twelve tenses are. Still, we could apply a bit of logic and reasoning for the learning, it would be a bit easier. There are languages that don't have very many tenses. For learners of these languages, learning another ten or so tenses might be pretty hairy.This unit covered how to begin teaching a new language to students. The unit gave good advice on what techniques to use when teaching vocabulary, grammatical structures, and language functions. The unit really reinforced the usage of the ENGAGE, STUDY, ACTIVATE method of teaching. I enjoyed that the unit gave even more examples of lessons using the arrow, boomerang, and patchwork methods of teaching.
