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.


During this lesson I learned about four things that students need to do with new language: to be exposed to it, understand its meaning, understand how it’s constructed and be able to practise and produce it. I learned what do students need to know about a vocabulary item ( meaning, use, word grammar, interaction, spelling, pronunciation) and grammatical structures ( meaning, use, forms and patterns, spoken and written form).Auxiliary verbs got basic rules and the models of the auxiliary vebs are can, could,may, might, shall, should, will, would,must, have to, have to, have got to,would. An modals can be used to express a number of different ideas, such as: Obligation Possibility/probability Ability Advice Permission/prohibition. Can be used when there is informational permisson, informal polite request, assume imporssibility and ability/possibility.
