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 offered much food for thought. I have had some experience as a substitute teacher on the elementary and high school levels, for which I was sadly unprepared from a classroom management and especially a discipline standpoint. Perhaps if I had had exposure to the ideas presented in this unit I might have been more effective in the classroom. The discussion of the use of voice and gestures was especially interesting.This was a very helpful lesson because grammar is always one of the most difficult thing for native speakers to teach. I like how the lesson went into all forms of the passive voice and explained in what cases to use them. I also like how the relative clause was explained in a very concise way. Dependent and independent clause were briefly touched in this lesson but I feel a little bit more detail could've been placed in them.
