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.


This unit talks about teaching pronunciation and phonology. It was interesting learning about stress patterns and articulation. The head picture showing the place of articulation (such as the velar, palatal and dental) was very helpful. Can't wait to use that when teaching my older students. This lesson will definitely make things easier for me, when next I have to teach pronunciation.In this unit we learned about the usage and the teaching methodologies of the most problematic direct and reporting speeches and also the five conditionals. Zero conditional, first conditional, second conditional, third conditional and mixed conditional. We studied about the Pronouns, verb tenses, Time expressions rules for proper use of direct speech when reporting to the third party.
