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 focuses on parsing sentences into the various parts of speech. It starts with breaking down sentences into subject, verb and object before taking a deeper look at the role of each word in a sentence. It then gives a further breakdown of the groupings of each part of speech; for example, a pronoun is a substitute for a noun or noun phrase that can be personal or possessive, reflexive or relevant.this unit takes us to Teaching theory and takes a close look at reading and listening skills. it therefore examines the importance of these skills and then covers various techniques and activities associated with them. to me, listening and reading is very important in Teaching especially for beginners because if a learner needs to have an attentive ear so as to repeat what was said clearly through reading
