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.


During this unit I researched the different types of tests that should be given to students in order to check their language ability, what they need to learn, what they would like to learn and how they are progressing through the course. I also learned about the different ways that these tests can be given to the students, and at the end of a course, how to obtain feedback from the students so that the course can be improved.Before this unit I thought that the future tense was far more simple. Having gone through this chapter has made me more aware of all the different tenses and how each one of them can be taught to a class, yet, also keeping in mind there are some very common mistakes, as stated in the examples, some of which I have heard in my daily life talking to second-language speakers and that some tenses are very similar to one and other.
