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 different ways to assess a student's language level and progress. Specifically, practice test should be given in the format and structure of the external examination that the students seeks to take. I also leaned the differences between each external examination.This was a very difficult unit for me. I often get these tenses mixed up, especially present continuous and present perfect continuous. It’s very hard to distinguish witch tense a sentence fall under because as native speakers we never learn to put sentences in these catagories.The information from the unit was given to me in the university, so I refreshed the phonology and groups of sounds in my memory. I learnt the techniques to teach the pronunciation and intonation in class. I found the Hints of pronunciation for foreigners a very useful thing to teach.
