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.


Modals,phrasal verbs and the passive voice unit if by far the most difficult grammar lesson to explain. I don't even remember learning this in great detail as a child. When introducing this subject to students I would begin with vocabulary. For example Phrasal verbs type 3. Only after they are familiar with uses and meaning changes, would I explain the technical reasoning and structuring.This unit helped demonstrate real life examples of how to properly engage students during a lesson. The videos contrasted together show how the way a teacher presents themselves and as well how they interact with the students during the lesson will help encourage more participation. As well, it teaches us to not quickly jump into difficult lesson plans but to slowly ease into the lessons.
