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 true that English language is all about grammar,vocabulary and function. It is through these aspects that the English language learners can read,speak and write. From this unit, I have learnt how to choose a vocabulary to suit a particular group of learners. I also think it is good as a teacher to encourage your students to use the vocabulary learnt since the Language is rich in vocabulary.This unit has reinforced what I know about grammar and has also demonstrated how it can be difficult for non-native speakers to understand all the different parts as it is a lot of information to process. As well as build up on what I already know, it has also reminded me to make sure that I should try and explain each area as concisely and as precisely as possible, so as not to confuse learners.
