Great English training

I was in Linh‘s TESOL class. I have learnt much during this class. I like the way that my teacher taught. She asked me to practice all the time before the real lesson. That helped a lot to understand. After the training, I feel more confident and fluent when I teach English. Highly recommended this organisation.

I was in Andrew Waddell’s TESOL class. I have learnt much, not only from the content, but also in how he engages with the students, and the focus on giving us practical experience. The class was a great learning environment, and my classmates were super lovely. I feel equipped to teach English next year and I am very grateful. Highly recommend!!

You don’t necessarily need to definitively know, where you’re headed or what the end result will be. All you need to know is that you want to start. Start and see where the journey of applying yourself takes you. Cert IV in TESOL has been enriching in many ways. I have learnt from my fellow students and am very grateful for my knowledgeable and encouraging teacher Andrew Waddell. Thank you for your patience, answering my questions and for an insightful, invaluable learning experience.
