TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Week 4

 


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 goes over the present tenses (simple, continuous, perfect, and perfect continuous), suggests possible in-class activities to teach these tenses, and warns of common mistakes made by learners. This unit has taught me how to classify various present tense examples, but more importantly it's made it abundantly clear how many exceptions there are to the "formulas" for the different tenses. I'll have to keep the exceptions in mind especially since many of the exceptions happen to be some of the most common or useful words in every day speech.
