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.


This section has taught me the different techniques in which to teach business English to students of various learner levels. It explains in detail the techniques used in the classroom and how to develop a functional course. Course development will be time consuming, however if done properly it can be what makes your course work. Learning about different uses of materials and resources can make a class succeed in their education.This unit is about the different aspects of present tense and their sentence patterns, usages, exceptions, and teaching strategies. The most important lessons that I have learned are the teaching strategies especially for young learners. It is quite a challenge for a teacher to think of effective ways on how to teach tenses to the students. The ideas presented in this unit are useful for me. I might be using one of them tomorrow.
