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.


In this unit we learned about the different types of future tenses. We learned Future Simple, Future Continuous, Future Perfect, and Future Perfect Continuous. We also learned about other forms of future tenses like the 'Going To' future tense, the Present Simple future tense and the Present Continuous future tense. We also learned about the usages of each one as well as a few teaching ideas for each.Unit 6 has gone over and taught me about past tenses and their different forms such as, past simple, past continuous, past perfect and perfect past continuous form. The unit has gone over common mistakes and errors that students make and exercises that can be helpful to teaching the different forms. I must not that the past tense forms are very similar to present tense forms but of course of the past.
