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 was tough and I learned I need to study the difference between the three types of phrasal verbs more closely. I feel this unit was full of great information I practice already when speaking, but am not used to dissecting as carefully as was demonstrated in this lesson. The modal auxiliary verbs chart was also quite helpful when determining which is the most polite to use and the reason in which you're using them.This unit is the final unit of the TEFL program. We examine Modal Auxiliary Verbs, we are given charts to help us understand how and when to use them most appropriately. Also common errors that are encountered , and teaching ideas. It explains and gives examples of the Active and Passive Voice. It gives us grammatical forms on how to transform Active to Passive forms. It introduces us to Relative clauses and Phrasal Verbs.
