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 unite helped me review past tenses such as past simple,past continuous ,past perfect and past perfect this unite I learnt about the usages of these tenses and the areas which can creat confusion for students.diffrent usage of these tenses can make them interesting to learn though they will make confusion but learning any new tense can increase in the students knowledge and can make conversation easier.This unit shows the complexity of the classroom. It shows that there are multiple variables of how to organize one's classroom before the students arrive for class. It also show how to deal with students on many learning levels and making them feel comfortable during a lesson to help improve their confidence. It shows how to discipline students in a manner that is not confrontational but helps end the current problem.
