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 unite give a great understanding of a teacher and students roles in a class. It describe their responsibilities, opportunities and relations which establish between teacher and learners during the teaching process. I specially like the part when it discribe the difference between young students and adults, that was new for me. This unit is a great introduction into the teaching world.Unit 16 goes over conditional and reported speech. In some ways, this material was new to me, before viewing the video and reading the notes I had never really thought about this material. Being that English is my native language I just automatically change my sentence structure to match the situation, but thinking about how it is actually constructed has been a little bit of a challenge.
