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 16 was about the conditional and the reported speach. There are three different forms of the conditional als well as the zero conditional and the mixed conditional. All forms have different rules and are used for different occasions. The chapter also provided us with ideas on how to teach the conditional. In addition to the conditional we also learned about the reported speach and when to use it.This unit was definitely tricky for me, because I haven't learned any of these categories before... I will obviously need to master these grammar rules before I attempt to teach them to other people. This unit made me understand how tricky learning English really is!!! But there are some shortcuts that I know will help (anything that is continuous, for example, will have an -ing word in the sentence).
