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 eight was a review of the somewhat complicated English future tense. While many of these tenses overlap in their correct use (the interchange of, for example, \"I will go tomorrow\" and \"I am going to go tomorrow\"), English teachers must find a way to clearly distinguish the tenses future simple, future continuous, future perfect, future perfect continuous, be going, present simple, and present continuous.I learned a lot about pronunciation in this chapter. My understanding of emphasis on certain words to get a certain point across was reinforced. I was introduced to phonetics (something i have never learned about before). I was given some good teaching ideas for pronunciation. Overall I believe the difficulty level rises in this chapter and i'll definitely have to go over again a few times before taking on a job.
