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.


Unit 2, explains clearly the different parts of a sentence, how some words change form when made plural. For me this is one of the most important units as it's the basics in how to construct a proper sentence with the usage of proper grammar. The unit also taught me the terms of the different parts of a sentence. Also learn that the English language is not constant and no rules are set in stone.In France I had to create my own materials, and I find this to be fun for both teacher and student, but it takes a lot of time. I must use a specific textbook with my students now and I feel I spend just as much time supplementing the lessons and we also have to follow along in order so the pages make sense. Thus, I think teachers have to adapt unless they have the freedom to do what they please.
