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.


We made each worksheets about the animal. I gave out the pictures of the animal and I asked for making picture book of animals after I teach the animals. I brought many pictures of the animal but it was insufficient. Because student really like to make picture books. So I had to bring pictures of the animals. But students were really happy and enjoyed and gave names to them. But I think I have to bring more pictures in the next time.This unit helps to define different parts of speech and make correct stress on details to explain to the students. In my own opinion and according to my experience, the most challenging part of speech is verbs, especially studying irregular verbs, that also makes influence on learning past tense. Also, one of the most interesting topics to teach is using gerund, and according to given information, that shouldn`t be a problem anymore.
