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.


Modals, Phrasal verbs and passive voice were very interesting. The more units I learn the more I learn. Things which I never realised before, I am made aware of them now. This unit made me aware of the two voices that are used in English. Even though I was using the active and passive voice during my day to day conversations, I never realised them as being classified as active and passive voices.Such as in the previous unit regarding tenses, this unit has helped me grasp more of a concept of tenses, which has been a difficulty for me when learning other languages in the past. I feel as though understanding this topic more thoroughly will give me the ability to explain things in a much more understandable way, while also possibly assisting me in learning different languages in the future.
