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 Unit 18, I learned about modals, phrasal verbs, and passive voice. One thing I found interesting in this unit was phrasal verbs. This was because I had never learned about transitive separable and transitive inseparable before. It took me a while to understand how to distinguish the two different phrasal verbs. However, after rereading the passages several times they finally clicked into place for me.This unit explored course books and lesson materials. It listed the advantages and disadvantages of course books to the teacher, students and in the classroom. I also learnt about authentic materials and how they may be brought into the classroom to add interest and develop the students' confidence. I also learnt about created materials and thought about how they may help my students' in the study phase.
