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.
In this unit I learned about evaluation and testing of students. In this unit I have learned about different kinds of tests, such as: placement tests, progress tests, diagnostic tests, practice tests, general external examinations. I saw the example of placement test.I feel like teaching this unit would be a little confusing to children from Asian countries who don't have all these tenses. Especially when you consider present simple and present continuous as factors. I feel like the way to overcome this might be through role-play.As a native English speaker I was not aware of the many varying tenses. So this lesson helped me differentiate between them. The description of the syntax and uses helped me a lot. I like the way all of the lessons are put together; in a simple, easy to follow format.
