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.

Even though this unit is simple straight forward and one of the shortest units so far to me, I think the details provided throughout the “concept of reading and listening” was very good for anyone who really wants to understand ESA. What I have actually learn from this unit is the engage and study phase and how to apply it to receptive skills.This unit illustrates the four present tenses in a systematic way. There are three sections for each tense in this unit, namely form, usage, and teaching ideas. When reading the notes, I realized non-progressive verbs are not normally used in the continuous forms. I also learnt the rule with ‘been’ or ‘gone’ in present perfect tense.
