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.


It is necessary to feel comfortable in understanding the different tenses, to be able to have that knowledge always in the mind and at hand. This means constant reading to assimilate the content of the unit. The unit was helpful in that regard, both clear and concise in explaining the Present Tenses. It may seem easy, but there are many subtle details that are important to remember.This unit outlines future tense grammar. This can be confusing if explained in a different way, but I found that these lessons fully explain each topic. There were some categorizations that I had not known the name before. The most useful part of this lesson was the teaching ideas expressed after each grammar. That gave me more insight as to what activities go well with this lesson.
