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.

Unit Two focused on the grammatical aspects of speech. It is clear that grammar will be one of the toughest topics to teach, in my opinion, for two main reasons: 1) grammar is/was not something typically taught for native English speakers, and 2) while English grammar has many rules, there are, at the same time, many exceptions to these rules. It will be quite task to teach all the aspects of English grammar to non-English speaking students, and it is my opinion that patience will be key to helping students master such a feat.
