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.


Past tenses in English has, in the same way as present tenses do, four different aspects; simple, continuous, perfect and perfect continuous. In the past simple form the use of irregular verbs comes in to the teaching. The tense system and learning irregular verb forms can be a great challenge for English learners and it is important for the teacher to find the right learning methods.It is very important to monitor the progress of students who are taking EFL and in this regard I have learnt the importance of Evaluation and Tests. I have gone through the various types of Tests that are available and the specific times when they should be applied during the course. I have also been exposed to the different International exams that are available for foreign students.
