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 focuses on the course books and other materials that teachers use in the classroom. There are many advantages and disadvantages of using coursebooks. However, I believe that the advantages prevail and it is generally a good idea to have books to base the syllabus around. At the same time, teachers should also employ other types of activities and not focus solely on the books.This unit took me a lot of time to understand as it gets confusing with usages. This future tense unit which discuss the 7 most common system are not common to me. It's enlightening in a way as it is confusing in some ways. I will try to dig dipper as i go through for more depth to this unit. Going to future and the present simple are so new to me. It's really good to learn new things.
