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 is about the all of the futures existing in English. I had not used them all in the past, and I now know how important is the difference among all of them. I think sometimes it might be difficult to use them correctly, as some of them may have almost the same uses. I find the examples given about how to interact with the students (role play, teaching ideas) and common mistakes very useful.In grammar, a future tense is a verb form that generally marks the event described by the verb as not having happened yet, but expected to happen in the future. But there are many forms and patters to be considered. As the past tense there are differences in meaning and building. Sometimes is the present is used to describe something that will occur in future (with the form to be + going to + verb).
