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 one is a brief summary of the parts of speech, but it seems that this is prepared more for British than for American students. It would have been better to explain Gerunds with Verbs, and Interjections (not covered in this unit) with Conjunctions. It was a bit puzzling to read the statement saying that there are only three auxiliary verbs (p16). What about these verbs such as Can, May, Must, Will, Shall, and so on?When teaching about language functions it is important that teachers explicitly teach the vocabulary and phrases associated with each language function and in addition students must also be introduced to grammatical structures associated with each language function and all that is well elaborated in this unit through which a teacher can ensure that students are introduced to new language in a balance and manageable way.
