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.


Communicating the learning goal to your students in a positive manner is key to encourage students to stay focused and engaged. Whether it is completing a worksheet, matching vocabulary with pictures, or using hand jesters, a well rounded lesson using multiple model techniques is beneficial. Activating prior knowledge in a modeling or brainstorm activity is a great way to access on how to make to lesson truly effective.This unit covered both the conditional form and reported (aka indirect) speech. A lot was new to me as I didn't realize there were so many conditional forms, so it was really good to over the different conditional forms and learn how to form them. I also learnt quite a bit about reported speech, as it is fairly difficult to explain and teach to students. The suggestions on how to teach reported speech were very helpful.
