Informative courses that are built in a simple comprehensible language which allows ease of study, organized and concise. Would love it if there were audiovisual parts of the lessons themselves, rather than just referral links on youtube or other.

I've chosen the 310 Hybrid course. My first course completed was the 10 hour virtual course with Michelle Benson. I am not from a teaching background and was very nervous with what to expect. I was nervous preparing to do my part of teach the class, but Michelle's energy and enthusiasm made all the nerves disappear, and she has the biggest smile 😃. Her lesson was structured and full of information. I'm looking forward to completing my courses.

I recently completed my 10 hour virtual course with Michelle Benson and would recommend taking this course if you want clear insight into what it means to teach English online. I found it very helpful to learn by both observing the teacher and having the opportunity to teach the class myself.

I just completed the 10 Hour Advanced Certificate in TEFL Classroom Methodologies Course this weekend. It was a fantastic course that was hugely useful for me (as a first time teacher) to learn the methodologies and to gain experience and confidence in delivering a lesson. The tutor Michelle Benson delivered the course in a very structured , professional and well paced manner. She ensured that all of the students were engaged and were involved in all parts of the course. Michelle's enthusiasm and upbeat positive manner made this a very enjoyable course to attend. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wanted to gain more confidence and skills in teaching English as a Foreign Language.

I have just completed "30 hour Teaching English Course" and I want to say that this course might be useful not only for teacher who are new in teaching online but also for experienced ones. I have been teaching online for 3 years and found a lot of new great sources and tools for my classes. Thanks a lot!
