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.


This unit covered the different types of present tenses, and I honestly had no idea there were so many. I knew the basics about the present tense, and that there were different forms, but I didn't know they were categorized into four different forms, and I also learned the way each form is used to address either present actions, continuing actions, or completed actions that have present results.This section describes the different types of present tense which are used in the English language. The present simple, present perfect, present continuous, and present perfect continuous are all put to use for different reasons based on the context and situation. With the exception of the present simple, each uses an auxiliary verb as well as the main verb in order to communicate present tense.
