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.


even thought I had previous knowledge of past tense, this unit has further developed that knowledge by introducing me to the sub categories in which a sentence can be formed. past perfect continuous, past perfect, past continuous and past simple. The unit also highlights common errors that occur when using past tense which allows me to be more confident when trying to spot mistakes when marking.Unit 2: Parts of speech was a very insightful unit to learn. This was a very important unit for me to study and to revise grammar as a whole and to master the different parts of speech. English grammar is a fundamental part of writing and learning in English. I am more confident after doing this module and I am more prepared to teach children grammar and sentence structure in a professional way.
