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 introduces to us conditionals and reported speech. The main objectives are: conditionals which including zero conditional, first conditional, second conditional, third conditional, mixed conditional , typical errors, teaching ideas, reported speech and direct speech, verb tenses, pronouns time expressions. I think this unit covers basic knowledge about reported speech and conditionals.This unit has given me a much better insight about relationships of teachers and students and a more deep understanding of the learning process. Now, I am able to classify different levels of English knowledge more accurately. I have gained a good understanding about the importance and the procedures of implementing different teaching methods and techniques. Thank you very much for this course!
