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.


the unit reviews the diiferent types of past tenses uses. it clarified the differences of auxilery verbs in use at each tense and the usage of the tense. therefore it is easier to use the right structer as well as teaching it correctly. what i liked the most about this unit is the large amount of worksheets and activities for students that was given. i can clearly see myself go back to the videos by the time i will start teach.Having already taken ITTT’s general TEFL course, I found that most of this material overlapped with the information I’d already learned in the previous course. However, the web links for possible TEFL materials for kids promises to be useful. In addition, it’s always good to be reminded of the range of materials (both authentic and non-authentic) that I should be regularly considering for inclusion in my lessons.
