What our graduates say
“A year ago, if anyone had told me that I would be teaching English to Chinese children in the future, I would have told then they were crazy, but here I am, enjoying the challenges and satisfaction that each class brings. The saying goes that ‘when one door closes, another opens’ and in my case it’s true. I lost one job that I loved, and I’m so lucky to have found another one.”
“Highly recommend. I live in the USA and had no problems whatsoever paying for the course, completing the assigned homework or receiving my certificate. Anyone interested in enhancing their resume should definitely consider the 120-hour Premier Course.”
“The entire 120-hour course was wonderful! My tutor was quick to come back with my graded assignments/tests and provided fantastic feedback I’ve kept note of. The quizzes were a great tool to review what you’ve learned in the modules too. Thank you for the wonderful experience!”
“I am taking the 120-hour online course and I am in the process of completing the grammar module. It is user friendly and I like the demos - it helps to see an actual lesson in a classroom setting. I would highly recommend the course for anyone who is thinking about it.”
“I'm so thankful that the videos have transcripts because they enable me to study during my breaks at work. They provide an alternative way of studying for those who couldn't watch the videos. Of course, the videos in the classroom are necessary to watch. They're interesting, too.”
