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 was an extremely helpful one. It has briefly introduced the different methodologies of teaching a second language. It has focused on the ESA way of teaching and it has provided a lot of ideas for activities in the classroom. I have learnt about the basic building blocks of a lesson, about the way a lesson should be structured, about teacher's reaction to mistakes and many more things.This unit made me want to apologize to my students who are starting to learn tenses! Most of these areas, I use without even consciously thinking about their use, nor what tense I need to use. But this unit made me think deeply about the challenges that my students will have with learning future tenses,. I feel better equipped now to help them, with the teaching ideas mentioned in this section.
