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.


Unit 3 focuses on the theories, methods and techniques of teaching. It gives details of the different teaching methods and techniques with their advantages and disadvantages. I have learned the most effective teaching technique proposed by Jeremy Harmer which is; Engage, Study and Activate commonly abbreviated as ESA. I have also learned the different techniques that could be employed in each stage of ESA.The tense system can get really confusing specially when is comes to talking about the future. With so many different tenses used with future meanings. this unit sheds more light at the seven most common types of tenses used for talking about the future such as: The future simple, Future continuous, Future Perfect, Future perfect continuous, going to future tense, present simple and the present continuous.
