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 like how the general thesis of this unit was that the interest of the topics must be catered to the students, not the teachers. This contradicts how my own school years went back in the day and I think that this makes for a much more engaging classroom than dry material. It also shows the students that you care about them and are willing to try and understand what they like in the world. This creates trust and mutual respect.This unit shows that a solid understanding of Present tense is very beneficial to understanding past tense. When teaching this subject that means it is important that students have a firm grasp of what has been taught to them previously as this will aid them greatly. However if they lack understanding then any links and similarities that you may point out in order to assist learning could instead hinder it by causing confusion.
