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.


These units have a nice layout and this one in particular provided the standard in simplicity. My knowledge now of the tense structure feels at its strongest. In these units, the piece with the most substance would have to be the Typical Mistakes section. It provides an excellent canvas for strengthening my teaching skills, giving good exapmles of where students can stumble, which will allow me to create a stronger lesson plan.This lesson demonstrated the amazing amount of technology that exists to assist in the classroom. The wide array of tools, ranging from old school overhead projectors to computer based technology such as smart white boards, shows me that depending on what school I teach in and how much money the school has for technology I will still be able to teach the students using one or more of the teaching aides detailed in this lesson.
