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.

This unit helped me learn techniques for working with large groups or classes with students at different levels of English. I learned how to deal with students having problems understanding listening exercises, finishing exercises quicker than other students, as well as the importance of not using their native language to explain grammar or vocabulary.Many nuances in the English language are tough to decipher. Learning the different present tenses, and their use in everyday situations, will help to explain why we choose the words we choose. Although \"present tense\" may seem easy, there are many uses. Each has their place and make all the difference when trying to explain life to the outside world.
