Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course.

This chapter covers student evaluation and testing detailing different types of tests that can be given. I don't like tests, but children's parents like tests because they like raw number results. The most important issue in planning for a student is their motivation. Why are they learning English? Is it to talk with people, to travel, to take a test, for work, etc?This is a very important unit because many languages don't have 12 tenses like the in the English language so students have a lot of trouble with this part of learning English. While this syntax comes naturally to English speakers, man of us couldn't explain why we say the things we say. This formalizes why we say what we say which gives us the ability to teach it.
