I loved the in-depth feedback on the assignments. It far exceeded my expectations. I thought that the materials were clear and well written. The tasks within each module were well spaced, thought provoking and relevant, and the module assignments challenging and an important part of the learning experience. Thanks!
I found studying this course was a very interesting online learning experience. The tasks set in each module were very helpful and the feedback pages were absolutely essential to my learning. The assignments were very challenging but I was encouraged with the tutor’s feedback. I would have liked to have had marking criteria available as I worked on the assignments, just to help me decide how far to go with my responses in each of the assignments. Thanks for the opportunity.
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 am grateful to this course for a great opportunity to revise grammar material, methodology concepts, and effective lesson planning. I got vivid examples of highly effective teaching methods, various ways of establishing rapport with students and I used them in my lesson planning during the course. To add to that, the course drew my attention to the topic of communicative games in the classroom. I got answers to all of my questions and detailed feedback on the submitted assignments. It was my pleasure to work with such a positive, supportive, patient and experienced tutor. He really made the program! It was a great course for me as it gave me the flexibility to work from home and in my own hours. I feel that I am ready to teach abroad.
I am not a natural born teacher but thanks to this course I feel very comfortable to walk into any classroom and teach. I absolutely recommend this course to friends who are interested in teaching or even to friends who are experienced teachers. It’s also a sort of course to improve and enhance teaching methods. I’ve absolutely no regrets about doing this course. Keep up the good work!
I have really learnt a great deal from this course. I have an MBA and teach Business subjects as well as Business English and this course has helped me to structure my marketing and management classes as well. The tasks were difficult, but the tutor was always available to provide support. Thank you Tesol-direct!
I have found the course material excellent. It is written in a really reader-friendly way, and there are plenty of examples and situations. The feedback from Paul has been fantastic – really detailed and useful. I have thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish! Many thanks.
The course has helped me to organise the Business English teaching that I have been doing for the last four years. It has helped me 1) to become more aware and better able to interpret the needs of my students; 2) to plan lessons around clearly defined goals; 3) to be more confident about the effectiveness of my own methods and style of teaching Business English. The feedback was first class. Another important aspect of the course is the flexibility of deadlines. I have a very busy family/working life and the fact that I could fit in the coursework during ‘calmer’ times of the year enabled me to enjoy completing each assignment without pressure.
I found the course material extremely well written and extremely clear to follow. I found the explanations and guidance notes highly beneficial and clear to follow and find the material a great reference tool. I often refer back to the course material to guide me in my day-to-day teaching activities. My course tutor was fantastic and put an incredible amount of thought into his revisions and guidance notes. I feel privileged to have had a tutor with such a great wealth of experience and who gave me such positive feedback along with helpful suggestions in making improvements to any weak areas of my assignments.
This was an excellent course which I thoroughly enjoyed. I would certainly recommend it to anyone wishing to obtain this qualification. The tutor’s feedback was so thorough and was greatly appreciated.
Teachers of English who want to become trainers in Business English also require training because working as a Business English trainer is very different from working as a regular teacher of English. A teacher with only a TESOL or TEFL certificate will not have the right qualifications to teach Business English and they will need to take a specialist Certificate in Teaching Business English (TBE) to be appropriately qualified.
A wide variety of textbooks are available for TESOL classes but while they provide a healthy income for publishers, do they really serve the interests of the learners? Could it be that they just provide an easier path for teachers rather than providing a solid ladder for students?
Teaching English abroad has been an interest of many young people, and quite a few older people, for many years. While the great majority of those seeking to teach English abroad may be between 20 and 40, there are still a fair number up to the age of about 75 who venture abroad to achieve a long held ambition.
Teaching English as a Second Language abroad can take various forms; however, the initial training should be much the same whichever course title is used. These days, whichever course description they have, there are minimal differences between good initial training courses.
