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.


I learned that engaging students is an important aspect of teaching a lesson. I also learned that I should use different ways in order to keep students engaged to ensure that lessons do not become repetitive. I also learned that it is very important to try to stay positive when making any corrections. Another thing that I learned is there are number of different methodologies that can be used to teach English.During this unit I have learned that the future tense is the hardest to teach because there are many ways it can be mistaken. One of the mistakes many students make it the difference between the future simple and the going to tense. I have learned to teach those back to back to make sure the students know the clear difference between the two. Other than those two tenses the future tense was easy to understand.
