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 discusses modal auxiliary verbs, passive and active voice, relative clauses and phrasal verbs. Each section gives examples and uses for each grammatical idea. We learn that modal auxiliary verbs have different ways in which they can be used. We learn some teaching ideas to better present that material. Similarly, the rest of the unit explores the uses for the passive formation, and the phrasal verbs.This is a fairly straight forward unit. Basic grammar – building block style. I do appreciate the \"usages\" sections which sum up nicely the typical scenarios. Also the \"typical student errors\" are useful for anticipating areas that might need specific attention in standard issue class. It's good to have extra examples lined up instead of scratching one's head. \"Teaching ideas\" are good for tips too.
