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.


As a teacher and a learner myself, the tense system has been a difficult but important stage during English language learning. As the author pointed out in the article, it is a challenge for both teacher and students. I found those engaging activities in the reading material for this unit are very helpful to enhance student's understanding and improve their proficiency in communicating.I think it is a very interesting unit. I appreciated questions 16 to 20 because it's a good way to practice phonetic scripts. in spite of too much theory, There are some important concepts that teachers should possess in order to teach pronunciation. In my opinion there should be more practical topics like, when the letter \" I\" has an /ai/ sound and when has an /i/ sound? for example.
