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.


Contrary to previous lessons, which taught me about different levels of learners, in this unitI learned about the different groups I will teach in teach future. I learned that Business learners have different needs, and motives for learning. I also learned that I don't need to have any knowledge of the specific field the students are coming from; The needs analysis will tell me exactly what their objectives are within their field.This unit talked about the more advanced forms of grammar - the passive voice (which is a weaker way of stating something compared to active), modal verbs (which go into the different formalities of phrasing questions and statements), relative clauses and their two types (defining and non-defining which have different \"needs\" of information in the sentence), and phrasal verbs in which an adverb and a preposition act as one thing.
