TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Matt


In the TEFL review, Matt describes how he was living and working as an English teacher in Japan when his employer asked him to get TEFL certified which he did through an online TEFL course with ITTT. Policy changes around the world mean that many countries now require their English teachers to have at least a 120-hour TEFL/TESOL certificate. ITTT's online courses are a great way to gain certification without having to take time off work.

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 taught me about the past tense and the different forms there are. I found this module a lot easier to understand after having done the present tense module. That set the bar for me and I found I was able to move through this unit at a quicker pace. I also appreciate that there is a 'unit break' between the tenses, as I think I would get confused between them all.I am finding tenses to be quite a difficult topic to get a handle on. I believe the lines between each form of past tense are heavily blurred but hopefully I have enough of an understanding to pass this unit. I will continue to work a lot on past tenses as I feel its a unit I don't have as much confidence in but I'm positive that will change over time with enough practice.
