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.

Much like present tenses, the past tense can be quite tricky to fully grasp. There are very subtle differences between the rules, usage and form. This not the only similarity though. There are many parallels one can draw between the two. The obvious difference being that it is in the past. Further reading on this subject/unit will be highly beneficial for myself.The attitude of the teacher, especially t the onset of the class is very important. The teacher should really know how to build rapport with the students and make them interested to join the class. He/She should also not make the students feel intimidated. He/She should also look approachable and friendly so the students won't hesitate to answer or ask questions.
