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.


In this unit, the main types of conditionals were defined and explained. Example sentences were given for each which I found very helpful in grasping the concept. Reported and direct speech were also discussed with a few examples. My favourite part, as usual, was the teaching ideas for both conditionals and reported/direct speech. These examples/ideas help me to think about how I would put this into practice when teaching.Well in this unit we got familiar with pronunciation and phonology. Although not so often taken into account by many teachers, this part of learning a language is very important for students. One exemple is to think about how where the stress is applied in a sentence can clearly change the outcome expected. We also see in this lesson the phonemic symbols and how we use our speech organs to physically articulate a language.
