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 unit focuses on the productive skills: speaking and writing. Accuracy activities (usually part of the study phase) are focused on producing the correct language. Fluency activities (usually part of the activate phase) are focused on experimenting and be creative with the language, more concerned with the effectiveness and the flow of the communication. Also, mentioned some guidelines for creative speaking and writing activities.This unit was very short compare to what I needed to learn. I feel like the relative clauses and the phrasal verbs were very short in information. I had a hard time deciding the correct answers of the test. I had to go through other online courses to have a clearer idea, nonetheless i don't know if I did it correct. I'm very confused on this particular part and i wish you'd review this unit, I'm sur either people had a hard time too.
