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.


Past perfect, past continuous, past perfect continuous-- these were all gray areas for me in school. It was even good to brush up on my past simple irregular verbs-- even fun! This unit helped me remember what I struggled with (and I'm sure I'll remember more about the 'future tense' unit as well) in school. This will be a point of empathy with any of my students who may struggle the same way!There are many different equipment and teaching aids that can be used to make lessons more interesting, effective and less dependent on the textbook. However, using all kinds of available tools requires good insight and understanding of their advantages and disadvantages. Its important for the teacher to plan ahead and always check how the equipment works in good time before the lesson starts.
