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 last lesson is a good wrap up on troubleshooting in the classroom which is a very important part of teaching. It outlines what to do and how to do it. It is important that from the start, the lessons go as smoothly as possible, and every individual's needs are meet. The teacher needs to ensure the lessons are structured properly and if anything goes wrong, the teacher must adapt the lesson accordingly.This was probably the most conceptually difficult of the lessons to date; it really doesn't help that the conditionals have such bland names attributed to them, though at least the order from zero to third made sense. It was valuable (as so many things in this course have been) because it exposed me to English from a structural, linguistic perspective and forced me to actually think about how English works.
