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 covers the usage of FUTURE TENSE. It also suggests ideas for learning activities suitable to teach units on the usage of future tenses. What I learned from this unit is - a lot of practice is important to master the English language system of tenses. Also, you can have a sentence about the future but it isn't in future tense e.g. \"The shop opens next month\" is in present simple tense.The materials in a classroom play a huge role in the students and the teachers learning environment. I think this is an important unit and I learned a lot about what materials I can use in my future classrooms. I had taken an English class at my school where we learned a lot about authentic and non authentic materials, so it was nice to get a refresh on that even though I already knew the material.
