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.


From this unit I learned about irregular past tense words that do not fit the conventional standard English. It seems some words do not fit in the past simple form such as catch, do, and be since they cannot add -ed in the end. So words like come instead are worded came to represent past simple form. I personally never thought about the past tense of words since it never occur that words actually have different proper grammar.This unit reviewed productive skills such as speaking and writing. I was happy to see that the writing skills section touched upon the intricacies of the english language regarding writing and pronunciation, as I think it would be very difficult for non-native speakers to understand how many words are spelled the same but written differently and vice versa. I was grateful for the example exercises the unit provided for lessons.
