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 really enjoy the grammat units of this course as they are really complex and give a nice overview of each section. The conditionals and reported speech are the part of grammar which shoul dbe presented to the students in more advanced level as it reuires knowledge of the all tenses.Reported speech and direct speech is again something that native English speakers do not really think about. The conditionals are easy to follow and understand, and the teaching ideas would be easy to implement as fun games. The verb tense guide on page 6 was particularly interesting.chain conditional sentences as explained under the teaching ideas. The reported speech and direct speech is very useful as i have learnt how to use them in asking or making direct questions or giving information. I have equally learnt how to change direct questions into reported ones.
