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.


We've looked at the use of gesture, eye contact and tone/volume of voice. Then examined classroom seating/table arrangements and how these can be changed or manipulated to suit different sizes of classes, and different needs to students or the type of class taught. Classroom management and dealing with problem behaviour has been covered with some recommendations to help prevent future problems or deall with some as/when/if they occur.In this Unit we learned about future tenses. We covered such topics as; Future Simple, Future Continuous, Future Perfect, Future Perfect Continuous, be going + infinitive, Present simple, and Present Continuous. These tenses generally follwed the same format as the Present and Past Tenses which were covered in earlier units. We studied Usage, Form, and Teaching Ideas which included useful ideas such as Diaries and Role-play activities.
