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 tends to focus more on the use of past tenses.It also elaborates on the fact that past tenses relates to past time periods. I have learnt that most mistakes and errors we make in the use of past tenses arise from the use of did and did not for questions and negatives and the use of irregular verbs.I have also learnt that it is important that the past continues should always require making reference to time.in this unit we looked at the phonetic script along with speech patterns, intonation, stress etc.. In my experience, the ability to explain the difference between a rise/fall and fall/rise, allows students to logically picture the different functions of different sounding sentences. Also linking, sound dropping etc... play a vital role in understanding how natives speak English and the difference from say; chinglish.
