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 explains basics regarding parts of speech. I have refreshed my knowledge regarding nouns, adjectives, articles, verbs, adverbs, gerunds, pronouns and prepositions. I like the way you explained use of articles, it was very concise and well structured. As prepositions are one of the most difficult parts of grammar to understand and explain, I think you should provide wider explanation and adequate examples.After giving some background on ESL teaching theory, Unit 3 primarily focuses on ESA teaching style. The ideal ESA plan is a straight forward lesson organization and offers flexibility and ease of use. This unit is one that I am sure to reread, and research in more depth as time allows. Fortunately for me, I have been asked to cover some classes for a friend this week, so I can put these ideas to use right away.
