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'm really glad for had get through all this lessons and reinforce all this basic grammar structures. The task list by the end of the unit made me felt more prepared to units to come and excited for future depth explanations about more specific and complex subjects. In this unit I did recall Verbs, Adverbs, Nouns, Pronouns, Adjectives, Superlative, Conjunctions etc and all of it with such a good easy explanation.This unit helped reinforce what I learned in present tense unit. It was pretty obvious for a native speaker that the tense and participles simply needed to be changed to the past, however, I can understand how challenging and frustrating it can be for non-native speakers. I will continue to review this material and pay more attention to the tense that I and others speak so that I can be the best teacher possible.
