TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Ben


Ben taught English in South Korea for four years before returning to his native California. In this TEFL review he describes how after returning home, he decided to seek out further qualifications in teaching English and found ITTT’s online TEFL course was the right one for him. Despite teaching English for several years, Ben found that the course had several new things to teach him including new methods and techniques.

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 combined two forms of grammar that could be very complicated for students. Although it was easy for me to follow the brief descriptions, there was a lot of information that I just carefully break down and present to my students. The videos were helpful as they gave more detail for situations using conditionals and demonstrated activities.In addition to providing simple guidance on the form of the different past tenses, the unit provided excellent explanations of when the different past tenses are used. As a native speaker of English and an English major, I was very familiar with the tenses; however, I found the explanations of when they are used to be very clear and very helpful.
