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.


In unit four, the four present tenses were introduced and explained. These tenses included present simple, present continuous, present perfect, and present perfect continuous. I have learned what situations each present tense is used in and how to form these tenses using proper grammar. I have also learned helpful ideas for teaching, including both activities to aid students learning, and commonly made mistakes to be on the lookout for.This Unit was dedicated to a grammar aspect. \"Conditionals and Inderect speech\". Differrent forms of contitional sentences were observed (zero, first, second, third, mixed conditions). Some teaching ideas were offerd for better explanation of the usage of contitionals. The question of direct and reported speech was covered. The Unit served as a meaningful review of such important grammatical aspect as Conditionals and Reported speech.
