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.


Unit 6 is about the past tense which is important for new English learners. It gives them the abilities to talk about their past experiences. This could be used in situations as informal as meeting a new person or something formal like a job interview. To practice the past tense can be as simple as allowing learners to do activities such as going over a resume, narrating a story, role play, and discussing “a time when…”.In this unit I learned, the basics of phonology within the English language, including stress, intonation, and the mapping of the organs and body parts involved in articulating speech. After only having taken Russian phonology, I thought it interesting that the phonemic symbols were different. Coming from New Jersey, it’s interesting to see that the extra lettering in English has a name and isn’t just a feature of our accent.
