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.


How fun was that? This Units content has been enriching material introducing the subject of the English tense system. This unit was very descriptive into the structures and usage of the present tense. With lots of fun activities and ideas for practicing and presenting the subject in the classroom. Also to keep for future reference and learning tools for now. I learned so much this Unit and can't wait to test out on this Unit.This was a lengthy unit that provided detailed descriptions of various teaching themes and how to organize them. The example lesson plans were of particular interest to me and I will surely use them as a reference in the future. The online resources mentioned in this unit will also come in handy. The games recommended will also help me in the future. I think the best part of this unit was definitely the detailed lesson plans.
