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 this unit, we reviewed conditionals and reported speech. This topic covers tenses; past, present, future, perfect, continuous, direct speech, reported speech, conditionals, etc. It is important to know this grammar when using verbs and pronouns. When talking about events in English, all of this grammar can really describe specifically when the event happened and our relationship to it.In this unit I learned about the different aids a teacher can use within the class to help make it more effect and or efficient whether it is for lesson planning or conveying information smoothly to students. Some of the aids may be a little outdated as it mentioned but this unit provided a very large list of other online resources as well which will be tremendously helpful in the future.
