TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 6


In this instalment of Chantelle’s TEFL course video diary she talks about the sixth unit. Unit 6 covers the past tenses; past simple, past continuous, past perfect and past perfect continuous. As with Unit 4, this unit describes the structure and common usages of the tenses as well pointing out common mistakes and providing teaching ideas that can be used in the classroom. Although not her favourite unit, Chantelle thought it was well laid out with good test questions and support.

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.

Some of the points laid down here are already familiar to me as I use them in my lessons, though on a modified basis because all my lessons are one-on-one. I particularly enjoyed learning about the flexibility of the ESA. I also learned a lot of new and great tips for lesson activities. I will try to implement them in modified forms in my lessons.This lesson gave me a great overview for the usage of electronics in the classroom and appropriate usage of all resources, Now that technology is becoming more and more advanced and common, it is important to use technology to strengthen lessons and activities as well as using technology to spark interest in students and get all students involved.
