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 focused on the use of coursebooks and materials in a classroom and how they can be effectively used. It also gave ideas on how choose a coursebook and how it may or may not be helpful in certain situations. I learned that the lesson doesn't have to be centered around the course book and that it may be beneficial to be creative in supplementing the lessons with my own created materials to make the classroom a little more fun.Knowing these grammatical terms is key to teach tense, and parts of speech. I find there are so many rules in the English language that it will be a challenge to teach these to EFL students (both children and adults) in an interesting way that captures their attention and interest. I also feel that the more complex parts of speech and grammar rules can be introduced at a much later point of the learner's development and understanding.
