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 is very helpful to me because it clearly explains how to teach writing and speaking. After working in training centers where they concentrated mostly on speakig, I feel like teaching writing skills is my weakest part so far. After reading this unit I have an idea of how to teach it. I especially like ideas for the games in the classroom. I will definitely try some of them out.This unit offered me a good review of the different grammatical categories used in modern English language. Though I have already taught grammar before and felt that I already had a solid knowledge, I learnt some useful tips that I might reuse! An explanation on how the doubling of a consonant for some verbs for their gerund would have been useful here, even for me! Hard to explain it...
