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.
The past tense is thankfully much like the present tense in breakdown. The auxiliary verbs and structures are very nearly the same so it was easier to memorize and apply the new information. Interesting to connect how sentences can switch between different tenses to connect past and present too.This unit took me some time to understand. I had to re-read and review. I found the task sheets to be very helpful and necessary to work through in order to practically absorb the content of the past tenses. I appreciated the activation ideas and am pleased to have them on file for later use.I like this lesson plan. It makes me think a little more than usual. The technique of the classroom seating and the teacher not constantly being the boss of the century. Establishing rapport to give clear instructions and to let the students help one another. It's also good to do an ice breaker.
