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.


Unit 11 explains the teaching of receptive skills. There are two receptive skills that are equally important; listening and reading. Students can learn these skills from authentic and/or non-authentic materials depending on the language level of the students. Learners have different purposes for reading and listening at every point in time, the various purposes have been discussed in this unit.I never knew or needed to use the specific definition for gerund. I feel that I can now identify all parts of speech and diagram sentences for students. Furthermore, I can describe in layman's terms what the function of the parts should be. In a lesson, I will be able to list on the board the parts of speech, the verb tenses, and adapt a lesson to focus on each part with facility and relevance.
