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.


I learned more about the names of various parts of speech. The unit covered numerous parts of speech, their meaning, examples, and compared and contrasted similar ones. It also included some general misconceptions that students may have when teaching about them. Although I was generally aware of the different parts of speech , I did not remember the proper names of most of them. This unit helped me review the material.This lesson covered a basic introduction to all of the parts of speech. While I understand how to use all of them, it has been a very long time since I remembered why each part is used the way it is. This PDF is a useful tool to have handy in class with my Spanish students, since most are native English speakers, to remind them of why it does that in English and then explain the similarities and differences in Spanish.
