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 am very happy about this unit as it required much more attention than the previous one. Especially, during the test. As a teacher by education I found it stimulating and very useful for my future work with students of different age. The unit recalled all what I learnt during my studies at an educational university. What is more, it provided even better udnerstanding of issues related to managing classes.Having completed the present tense unit, a pattern is evident in the form of each past tense.The use of past tense will depend on the action in question, for example, I worked is a past simple tense as the action has been completed at a definitive time. Understanding the form of each past tense will allow students to identify the rule that applies. For example, all perfect forms include the verb 'to have'.
