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 word condition is very much used in day today life.In Grammar condition starts with if or when. This unit deals with different forms of condition like Zero,first ,second third and mixed condition with their forms and usage.This also teaches ideas how to split a sentence to make easy for students to understand.This shows how direct speech changes to indirect speech like present simple changes to past simple and so on.English tense system is a challenging area to teach in Asian country as many Asian languages have just one tense. This unit summarises the 4 different present tense forms, usages and teaching ideas. We need to increase talk time in class for students to understand the different tense usages, particularly present perfect and present perfect continuous tenses. Activities such as role play and miming are good teaching ideas
