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 loved this unit. I had no idea that when I speak I unconsciously use these intonations and stresses. I was utterly amazed how accurate the breakdown of our unconscious intonation was. And what fun learning the phonetic alphabet. I do think, that if students are willing to learn the phonetic alphabet early on, they will be able to pronounce English at a superior level.Unit 4 Present Tenses is very useful explaining the Form, Usages, Typical student errors and proposing exercises. The English tense system is complex and is challenging for non-native speakers, specially when you want to become an ESL teacher. Unit 4 explains the present tenses in an accessible language and with a logic that is easy to follow. Unit 4 was very useful for me.
