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.


It is not possible to cover all areas of grammar by just one lesson as grammar can be quite extensive and is often learned overtime. It is important for teachers to use good reference guidance. An important aspect of grammar is modal auxiliary verbs, these include; may, might, can, could, would, will must etc. They convey various expressions such as obligations, possibilities/probabilities, permissions/prohibitions, abilities or advice.This Unit covers Parts of Speech of English language. There are several parts, such as Noun, Verb, Adverb, Adjective, etc. Students much be familiar with basic rules which guide all of these parts of speech. Together, these rules form English grammar. English grammar can be challenging for learners because there are a lot of exceptions to the established rules. The Unit also talks about exceptions and includes a list of Irregular Verbs.
