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 allows us to see an example of teaching in the classroom. In both a class that goes well and a class that does not. This is important because it allows us to see how students respond to the attitude of a teacher in a real life classroom setting. It remind us, as teachers, that while our job is teaching we need to be sure our attitude is not getting in the way of the students` learning.This unit covers the 5 future tenses in the English language, in addition to going over two of the present tenses that are also sometimes used to express actions in the future. it also goes over some of the common difficulties learners of English may have in distinguishing the differences. This unit provides examples of each tense being used and under what circumstances one would use each tense.
