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.


I can easily see how difficult just figuring out the various forms of present tense can be tricky to learners of English. The errors that foreigners to the language will make are easy to see, and the examples provided also help in identifying common mistakes. Tying in suggestions for the activate stage is helpful for reviewing by the teacher as well as, I imagine, for the prospective students.This unit clarifies the grammatical rules for two very problematic areas of English grammar, conditional sentences and reported speech. I learned that many English learners (and even native English speakers) do not always use the correct tenses for these types of sentences when speaking or writing. This unit gives me the tools to explain the rules to students and some ideas for teaching them.
