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 can definitely see how this lesson's content could be problematic for English Language Learners since it is very confusing. Even for me as a native speaker I did not realize the small differences and nuances between the conditionals and verb tenses. But the explicit 'form' and 'usage' tabs helped me to more easily understand some of these differences.The unit content was fairly self explanitory and easy to understand, however as always I still find it very confusing when planning the lesson. I am always unsure when taking the tests which order to place the study phases as in a real life classroom situation the order is not so set in stone. Generally things are covered and repeated a number of times.
