I have really enjoyed this course and am very glad that I chose Global English. All of the staff have been so helpful and friendly, making it seem as though I actually count! Thank you so much everybody.
I have just completed my first session of teaching. All but 2 of my 17 students passed the exams and have moved on to the next level. I believe this success rate is due to the training I received from Global English. Your Guidance on lesson planning has proved invaluable.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this course. Clare Welch was a great tutor, all my questions were immediately addressed, and I found the course material to be challenging and thought provoking.
