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 feel this is a good unit. Teaching students passive ways of saying things. So people don't get the wrong idea and take offense to the way things are said. It has caused several bad situations, where as wording things differently can help to prevent that. I also liked the Idea of working in Phrasal verbs throughout the schooling. Instead of making a whole lesson plan about it and possibly confusing while explaining.I really don't feel like the content of chapters is important and my knowledge of content being tested if questions from previous tests - easy enough in themselves - are repeated in following tests. I was hardly expecting a really comprehensive and good TEFL course through some online course as opposed to an actual class, but even so, I expected somewhat better than pure laziness in creating already simple questions.
