This video is part of our series on 'Coursebooks and Materials for EFL Teachers'. In this video, we take a look at how to make the best use of a coursebook in an EFL classroom. Most English schools have coursebooks but it is important to keep in mind that you cannot always rely on the books and you shouldn't use them all the time. Find out more about how to use coursebooks in this video.

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 covered all of the seven tenses that can be associated with the future. These include: future simple, future continuous, future perfect, future perfect continuous, be going + infinitive, present simple, and present continuous. The unit provided examples of form (affirmative, yes/no questions, negatives), usage, and typical mistakes/errors for each tense.After digesting all information from the unit, I have learnt the way of planning lesson plans, making it interesting, flexible, being full of content for teacher as well as for students. How to deal with anticipated problems during the class and how to solve them. The last but not least teachers should constantly refresh the lesson plan and improve him/her self.
