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 module has been quite informative and interesting. I found out a lot of new information, that i was not consciously aware beforehand. I was not aware of the Engage, Study and Activate method. There are also presented quite a few interesting ideas for group works which my studets enjoy quite a lot. I also found out about the Patchwork and Boomerang lesson plans which i will surely apply to my daily life.This lesson was clear and concise and gave an overview of grammar. I did not know all the rules for the grammar despite being a native speaker, and this is helpful for answering student's questions about grammar. It will be good to have this to use as a reference for basic grammar questions. The knowledge review task was effective at helping me consolidate knowledge e.g. how I would explain this to students.
