In this video, we provide you with a useful overview of the various past tenses. We focus here especially on the differences between the past perfect and past perfect continuous.

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 have learnt that the teachers attitude and manor can have a large impact on the overall effectiveness of the lesson. Simple things like gesturing and speaking slowly and clearly make a big difference. It also taught me that the energy the teacher has will rub off on the pupils.In this unit, I got to learn how to teach new vocabulary, grammar and functions. Because I do not have much experience in teaching, the possible ESA steps were very informative and useful. I was also able to imagine how I can successfully teach a whole class using the techniques.This is confusing and not always easy to impart this knowledge to the students. The lesson provides a clear understanding of modals, phrasal verbs and passive voice. The lesson is helpful and informative and will make it easier to teach this to students albeit a little confusing.
