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 applying the reported-speech technique, the teacher may need to organize more role-plays for the sake of practicing. These will necessarily turn out to be useful in the daily life. The aim is that the students will be able to report somebody else. Among the conditional expressions, the mixed one seems to be the most complicated; therefore, this issue should be appropriately resolved.With a world full of technology and resources it can be hard for a new teacher to know where to begin looking for information to teach a lesson. Walking into a classroom one also doesn't always know or understand how the items that are found there can be used. This unit is very informative and helpful for knowing how to use what you have and how to look for things you might want to add.
