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 coves the use of conditionals and reported speech. It explained different forms of conditional sentences: zero, first, second, third, and mixed. Teaching ideas included moral dilemmas and nuclear bunker role play. For reported speech, it covered how the tenses in reported speech need to be altered from direct speech. Teaching ideas include role playing and mock \"media interviews\".Unit 1 is well presented and gave me a new understanding of the qualities, roles and responsibilities of both teachers and students in the classroom. It is important to know beforehand what the qualities of a good teacher is and this knowledge will give me the ability to encourage and stimulate the students to give their best while they still enjoy the accomplishment of learning a new language
