"I am so glad I decided to take this course"

Alexandra Gray , UK
5/5

I’m so glad I decided to take this course. The training was of a very high standard. The tutors delivered our teaching training sessions using the same methods they were expecting us to use with students, so we were absorbing good practice and helpful strategies the entire time. Jo and Neil were friendly and supportive, they were also very thorough – there was no cutting corners! We received detailed feedback and points to work on after every lesson we taught, which meant it was possible to improve a great deal in the four weeks I was there. We were given lots of hand outs and guidance on lesson planning. It was also really helpful to observe professional tutors during the course.
The facilities at the school were excellent. We had our own classroom/staffroom, with ready access to course books, teaching methodology books, computers, and photocopier. The school itself has a library, study centre, and bookshop onsite. There is also a very reasonably priced café, with friendly staff.
I can’t recommend this course highly enough, but they’re not kidding when they say’s it’s intense. Clear your diary, as evenings and weekends are needed for the many hours of assignments and lesson planning required. Having said that, it’s worth it. I finished the course feeling confident that I had the skills to start teaching English straight away.
