    Haven just finished the tesol course after 1 year I can safely say that it is worth its time and place as far as courses go this is the best. Not only do you gain knowledge and tips of making that first step to becoming a teacher you are given positive feedback from your personal tutor and their response time and feedback are vital for you as the learner. A year ago I honestly thought I would struggle but the tesol course itself and the support you receive, will get over the finishing line, it gives you the confidence and a solid platform in which to build on in the future. Don’t think about it, just do it.

    This was a clear and well thought out program.
    I had been enrolled in a TESOL course at a college and had spent 3 months wading through the books they had advised me to pre read, but one week before the course started it was cancelled. As I had set aside 6 weeks to study I searched on line and found TESOL-direct.
    By comparison TESOL-direct was so beautifully written, well thought out, with logical progression, it was a pleasure to complete.
    I have been helping foreign speakers with English for years when on holiday but now I have lesson plans and real confidence to take this forward as a career.
    The thought that has gone into the preparation of this course shows dedication and real understanding of how to become a good teacher.

    I feel that I have learned a lot from this course. It has been especially useful to me that I was able to do some teaching work at the same time, and so had the opportunity to put into practice some of what I was learning. The text books I received will be useful for reference in the future. I enjoyed the course and will miss it!

    General comments: Paul was excellent with his feedback and apart from assignment 3, the response time was brilliant. When I received the materials for block two there were pages missing, but this was resolved quickly. Only time will tell with the recommendation; because the real proof of the qualification is its value for obtaining work. Paul’s feedback was easily the most valuable part of the course, outstanding.
    It is an online course so no opportunity of teaching practice. There was no job placement either. There is online resources but the printed materials were great and these formed the basis of my study ..

    The online TESOL course was very interesting and informative, and I particularly enjoyed being able to work through the modules at my own pace. The module guides were accessible and clearly structured, so I was able to follow the topics and complete the tasks to monitor my progress. The module assignments were both challenging and thought provoking. I really appreciated the detailed feedback from my tutor, Paul Simmonds, which helped to further my understanding of the course content. I’m looking forward to applying for TESOL jobs to make use of my new skills!

    I enrolled with TESOL Direct and was very happy about it. I got my diploma in 6 months. Lessons are well developped, it gives you many keys and teaching methods. Of course, you also need to do some research on your own to go further in your reflexion but in the end, you’ll have many tools and ideas in hand to start as a English teacher.
    My tutor, Paul Simmonds, was always available and attentive to my questions and guided me well all along my training period. His feedbacks were very detailed.
