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.


Unit 10 has given 2 lesson examples in how to teach the modal auxiliary verbs can and can't. The first lesson example I found very painful to watch as the teacher made many mistakes. My opinion is based on what I have learn't from the course so far. The second lesson example I found much more enjoyable to watch as he engaged the students and prompted their interest right from the start of the lesson.This unit discussed the pros and cons of using coursebooks virus more creative lesson materials such as crosswords, word search puzzles, role play cards, flashcards, gap fill activities and picture stories. It also covered how to analyse a course book, and recommended not basing lessons entirely on a coursebook. Finally it also covered the difference between authentic and non authentic reading text.
