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 summarizes the main reasons and ways of testing and evaluating our future students. How often is good to give them tests and what types of tests are appropriate for our lessons. An example of a placement test was given so we could have an idea of how to make it. Also a list of general external examinations and Cambridge Assessments were listed with a short explanation of each.As indicated earlier in the introductory page, this unit is the opposite lesson of present tense. As I have read and understood for the former, it makes this easy to digest. The most important thing for me to learn to is correctly associated all the tenses (present, past, perfect etc) with their correct meaning, as this are all confusing to remember at a glance, without proper practice.
