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.

Each word in a sentence has a place and a description of what it represents. Because of the complexity of the language and exceptions to the rule this section needs more study. Where a word is positioned in a sentence can influence it's grammatical type as well, and sometimes its meaning.As I learned from unit 14, Teachers must consider well for the book between authentic or created for a class purpose. It could be huge wrong direction if you failed. This unit shows that use the right course is important. And if teachers use only published book only might make teacher lazy.This unit help me to familiarize with the different parts of speech which is the most fundamental concepts that I will encounter throughout my study of grammar. I strongly believe that in depth knowledge of this topic will make me a better writer and also an effective communicator as well.
