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 talks about teaching productive skills - speaking and writing. I have learnt what is the difference between accuracy and fluency activities, what are speaking activities in the classroom and what are the techniques to encourage interaction (pair-work, group-work, etc). When we talk about writing skills, the most important skills to teach are: handwriting, spelling, punctuation.This unit was a good review of the present tense of the English language. I found the clear and concise descriptions of usages particularly helpful. I think these will help me when I need to explain the present tense to my future students. I was also glad to learn some different activities that can be used to help students understand and learn to use the present tense in practical ways.
