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.


Planning of a lesson is important but the teacher must be flexible during the lesson to change the planning when necessary. Longer time for specific discussions for example when class requires more time. Planning will also show teacher whether student goals for specific learning have been achieved, meaning did the students learn the language/vocabulary that the teacher planned for the specific lesson.The forth unit gives a quite detailed illustration of present tenses. Having a broad experience in dealing with English grammar, I was aware of almost all the points, however, there were several interesting examples and facts for me which I’ve found to be useful in teaching. I’d like to underline the perfect structure of the unit and vivid examples which help to comprehend everything easily.
