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.


In this Unit 14, I Learned about the course books and other materials that can be used in your English language lessons. The unit also discusses the differences between authentic and created materials and why and when each should be used in a class. It includes some examples of created materials. It also covers the advantages and disadvantages of using course books and the best ways to use a course book in the lessons.In this final grammar based unit, I have learned modal auxiliary verbs, the passive voice, phrasal verbs, and relative clauses. Phrasal verbs are verbs that are used with particles and are classified as intransitive, transitive separable, and transitive inseparable. Intransitive verbs don't have a direct object, while transitive separable's object pronoun comes after the particle, this is called transitive inswparable.
