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.


Every teacher has their own style of managing the classroom. Therefore, a good teacher does not have to be an extrovert in the classroom. Teachers have numerous ways of maintaining their manager role in the classroom. If used correctly, eye contact, gesture and voice are the best way. Furthermore, the way of grouping students and balancing student and teacher talking time will create efficiency and the authority of the teacher.This unit I have learnt the different types of conditional speech. Each type differs according to the tense that is used and \"if\" clause and conditional clause are absolutely related to each other. The \"if\"clause is the condition that has to be fulfilled otherwise the main clause cannot take place. I also learnt in reported speech changing the tense that is used into correct one is as important as modifying time expressions.
