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.


English Grammar and parts of speech are a very difficult concept to grasp especially when the language is foreign to an individual. However, grammar is important to truly understand and comprehend the English language for all levels of English learners. Grammar comprehension such as verbs, adjectives and nouns are necessary for English development as it bridges the gap between proper speech, enunciation, and written strength.This unit focuses on teachers and learners. Topics covered include: the different roles a teacher may play, different reasons students have for attending ESL courses, different levels of language ability, and common issues. The unit also covers the differences between adult and young learners. Some issues discussed include issues of cultural sensitivity, lack of motivation, and when and how to use different teaching styles.
