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.


The future tenses can be very confusing for students. Some forms, such as future perfect and future perfect continuous, are not used as often as other forms so it is sometimes difficult for students to keep these skills fresh. The proposed activities were very well matched to the function of each tense and seem to be engaging. I will definitely be putting some of these ideas to use soon!The unit has equipped me with the most needed areas of English language techniques that I require to help my students even though I might not know absolutely everything about English language grammar. I also learn the basic sentence structures and how to be able to recognize and classify part of speech. I equally found a lot of useful rules as regards as it relates to grammar exercises.
