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.


I have debated for a while the need for course books, as I have seen different ESL classes uses published materials and others created their own materials. After this unit, I believe that I will try to do a combination of created and published materials if I have the ability to choose for my class, that way I can better adapt the materials to the culture and context, but also have the experience and ideas of the published materials.I found this unit a bit more difficult than the previous ones. But, I can definitely see how it is easy to confuse one tense with another...i.e. (future perfect vs future perfect continuous). The fact that it also involves present simple and present continuous makes it that much more interesting. When it comes time to teach, of the three main tenses, this one might be the best one to teach first and the other two should be a breeze.
