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 teaches the four future tenses plus three other uses. By this time in the course, I learned the pattern of simple, continuous, perfect simple and perfect continuous and this time, I saw how it was applied to the future tenses. I also learned that the present tenses can be used to indicate a future occurrence such as in \"the plane leaves tomorrow\" or \"we open in July\".In this video lesson I learned that the attitude of the teacher reflects the whole classroom and how the students participate in the class.the teacher should speak slowly and clearly, and the teacher must know the ambiance if the students are catching up with the lesson or understand what is he/she teaching. And preparing some tools like pictures help teachers and the students alike.
