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.


In this lesson, it teaches me the differences of tenses and i was able to differentiate their usages and structures. I'm often get confused when it comes to the usage of tenses because i don't usually pay attention about that. As i go through this unit, i have learned that in English grammar, it is very important that I know how to identify the tenses and used the correct structure for each tenses.The unit reflects the difference between the 5 common English language conditionals. I learned how to distinguish and categorize the conditionals and methods of teaching how to avoid confusion among students. In this unit, we can see that creativity is a key to solving common problems among students and prevent confusions. In addition I found the diagram very effective for student with visual thinking.
