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.


To be a good teacher, you have to know your grammar, especially teaching in a non English speaking country. This unit is thoroughly furnished grammar with modals, phrasal verb and passive voice. I have learned the proper use of auxiliary verbs in many forms and their accurate use in sentences. The passive voice table is very effective for my students as well as for me. I also appreciate the way relative clauses area has explored.The provided materials in this unit are very useful and practical. The different teaching themes are very interesting and attractive. I found these themes such as Case studies, frame-working, problem-based learning and games, very applicable and effective in teaching business English. Additionally, the provided lesson plans at the end of the unit are very realistic and in fact, help me to prepare my own lesson plan for my classes.
