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.


In this unit I learned how certain age group like and dislike in the classroom. I also learned the different skills children 5-9 years old possess and children 9-13 possess. In addition, I also learned the different roles a teacher may have in the classroom such as being an instructor, facilitator, mentor, psychologist, counselor or policeman. These roles of course, vary on the situation in the classroom.This unit was very helpful in my figuring out many of the nuances of the future tense. The future tense seems really difficult because of all the nuances. The difference aspects used for predictions seem to have really subtle differences that might be hard to convey to students. Also, the future tense is further complicated by both the present simple and the present continuous having future applications.
