Mr Alex was an engaging and knowledgeable instructor who offered useful strategies which could be immediately implemented in the classroom.
This was a very smooth and coherent program. My tutor was very informative and her feedback on my assignments was very constructive. The lessons were very well structured and organized, which made it quite easy to follow the chapters. Although some of the educational videos could be more engaging, the content was relevant and useful. I tried to made most of this learning experience, and hope it can help me to achieve my career goals in future. I recommend taking this course to those people who are passionate about teaching with or without prior teaching experience.
Alex is a high energy instructor who walks the walk. He has the theoretical pedigree but doesn’t fall into the trap of relying on information delivery that many PD instructors rely on. Instead, he sprinkles the research backing when necessary but mainly has the participants practice the skills in a fun and interactive way.
It was a great investment. It adequately prepared me to teach English as a second language. I would suggest this course for teachers who want to teach English abroad.
This TESOL course was my first introduction to teaching methodology. As such, it was difficult at first for me to understand the role of the teacher, the role of the student, and how to maximize course effectiveness to achieve results in an ESL classroom. However, the 120-hour TESOL course includes plenty of review, and any additional course you may add to it provides a thorough synopsis of the main points of the TESOL course.
It is a very flexible program allowing for students to go at their own pace. My coach gave good feedback to assignments. The possible positions available upon completion seems very good, however I already had a job so didn't need to take advantage of the benefit.
I really liked the fact that the program was self-paced, so I was able to work while completing it. I learned how to better manage my time and pacing on lessons. I learned what NOT to say to ESL students.
