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 reminded me about some more complex problems in English grammar. It also showed me once again subtle differences between some modal verbs and its use in different grammatical and real context. It also gived me some ideas on how to teach these verbs to students. This unit forced me to relearn about phrasal verbs which are quite difficult to master for non-native English speakes.I think resources are one of the very important thing we can use during the process of teaching a new language. They help us to cover the needs or interest form the class. When we already have course books in out schools this source of materials can be a great help to create and have more suitable material for our students or adapt the resources to their own students cultural background.
