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 was an excellent lesson on conditional and reported speech. I feel that I learned a lot from this lesson on the ways that I can teach these concepts and rules. It’s not something that I would normally think twice about but that’s because English is my first langue. It’s important to learn and look at all aspects of the language from a new perspective of the basics.I consider this unit is very useful because it gives us a better idea of how a class can be managed, and the pros and cons of certain in-class activities. There are certain aspects that called my attention like the grouping of students, the delivery of instructions, and the class arrangement. We usually take those elements for granted, but they undoubtedly have an effect on our class.
