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.


I’ve learnt how language can not be understood without using effectively the correct part of a tense and tenses on the whole. The difference,even if it is slight in each tense ,can create a completely new meaning and understanding of a sentence. In order for English to be communicated properly it is imperative that the student learns to communicate effectively by using the correct part of the tense and tenses as a whole.The lesson was very insightful. It is great to know how technology and equipment can aide in teaching ESL students. I like the smartboards which are connected to the internet to help teach. I also like whiteboards to help with presentations. I use a whiteboard and the internet to enhance the students experience. The students are more engaged when using these tools. This is the new way of teaching which seems to be very effective.
