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 has really been a tough one for me. Differentiating from the different phrasal verbs will be a difficult thing to teach because it was a difficult concept for me to learn. I as a teacher will have to introduce this slowly to the students that I am teaching because this is a difficult grammar lesson. Hopefully mentioning the different phrasal verbs often will help the students learn them and be able to use them effectively.I'm excited to start learning how to teach young children English. I've had the chance to observe other teachers of young children address the student's frustration through attention and redirecting it to a fun activity which is a much different approach than adults. I truly believe children try to learn the content presented to them without and previous connotations and just need encouragement whenever they feel lost or helpless.
