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 grammar based unit is the first that covers the tense system of the English language. The unit focuses on the present tenses; the present simple, present continuous, present perfect and present perfect continuous. Unit 4 is also about tenses usages, typical student's errors and some teaching ideas, which teacher can use during the Activate stage.Watching the first video was quite difficult as it was disturbing how condescending this teach was to his students and hard to watch as he created a very negative environment. The second video was a great example of how the teacher can affect his/ her students through all the elements presented so far (technique, attitude, lesson plan, engagement etc)
