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.


I learned a lot about different techniques for teaching and how to use them in lessons. This unit provided a lot of great ideas for activities to use in the lesson as well as information about how to give feedback and when that feedback is necessary. I think this unit is very important because I learned about how to mix and match lessons and how they should ideally be structured (a variation of ESA).This unit provided an overview of the following grammar forms: present simple, Present continuous (progressive), present perfect, and present Perfect continuous. Also, numerous example sentences, using said forms, Were provided. Finally, common student errors were cited. Tips in how to Go about teaching these forms were also noted In the unit. Positive, negative, and question forms were listed.
