An excellent course allowing me to study at my own pace. The TBE course is a great follow-up course to the 150-hour TESOL course that I completed previously. Extremely helpful feedback from my tutor. The course was packed with useful ideas that I hope to use in the future in my new career.
I really enjoyed this course. I learnt a lot and received all the help I needed in terms of understanding and learning the course material. I appreciate all the help and support from my tutor.
I found the course very professional and the contact with my course tutor was easy and rewarding. He responded very quickly to my emails. I found the feedback from the questions I submitted very good and very useful. It helped me complete further questions and has given me direction in my job. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I would definitely recommend it to colleagues and friends.
I really enjoyed the course and my tutor’s feedback was always very helpful.
I have already recommended this course to a South African friend living in Tanzania! Paul as my tutor has always been most supportive. His feedback on assignments were always timely, constructive and motivating. He is an encyclopaedia on teaching methods! Thank you Paul!! Thank you TESOL-direct.
