OTP English Lesson - Richard - Study Phase - Modal Verb Usages


"In this video, our OTP trainee Richard introduces the topic of modal verbs. They are used to express ability, possibility, permission or obligation. ITTT's Observed Teaching Practice courses (OTP) are ideal for teachers wanting to improve their teaching skills remotely from anywhere in the world."

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 convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

I find this unit to be crucial to my TESOL training, since it provides key teaching theories, techniques and methodology. I personally believe I have been using PPP, TBL and CLT methods in my teaching practice. Engage, Study, Activate technique is quite new to me, it has revolutionised my view of teaching and I will be trying to implement it in my practice as much as possible.I never realized (prior to this lesson) just how many external exams there were to evaluate English proficiency. As someone who grew up in the United States I was always used to taking government tests every year and never really thought about how that would effect the teachers themselves. Now I know why so many of my teachers complained about needing to \"teach to the test\".
