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.


What I learned in this unit is that the teacher and his or her attitude towards the subject matter, students and their approach to the lesson really makes a difference for the students. The first video lesson looked to be torture for the students, therefore, they will learn very little. The second video lesson showed the students to be engaged and interested in learning, therefore they learned quite a lot in that class.In this unit, I have learned about the different conditionals and reported speech. There are different conditionals including the zero conditional, first conditional, second conditional, third conditional, and mixed conditional. With each conditional they have their own purpose to help figure out the conditional. The reported speech is used to help use the correct forms when repeating what another person has just said.
