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.


Students (who are) learning a new language, of course needs to learn how to express themselves effectively. Hence, correct grammar is a major requirement. Using conditionals may be of great help to them when having spontaneous conversations with their classmates, friends and families. It couldn't be a piece of cake for teachers to discuss these to students, but there are always efficient ways to do it.This unit covered the four present tenses;present simple, present progressive, present perfect and present perfect continuous. It gave the structure for affirmative, negative and question forms and gave potential activities to teach each tense. I learned the difference between 'been' and 'gone', and that it is much more difficult to describe why a mistake/error is wrong than it is to simply correct it.
