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 section went over the four forms of the past tense. Past simple is used for set events in the past, whereas past continuous can be used to describe situations surrounding a past event. Past perfect and past perfect continuous are very similar to present perfect and present perfect continuous, but instead of being \"the past in the present\" they describe \"the past in the past\".This was a fairly short unit, which I feel reviewed many of the course concepts such as dealing with reluctant participation or passive listeners, and how to approach large class sizes. I believe what is most helpful for me was understanding when not to use the native language, and to restrict it to a minimum so as to best ensure that English is practiced and applied in the classroom.
