Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course.

As a graduate student, I've found that the only way a teacher can initiate a trusting and comfortable discussion is to have the students respect and connect with them.This unit was about conditionals and reported speech, which is important because that's what happens when you relate what someone else said in a different situation and people need to know how to express what happened in previous conversations. This can be hard because verbs and time markers changed, which is what this unit focused on the most.
