Student Comments

This is the 5th online course that I have done with Global English. I completed the Cert.(ES)TESOL course in February 2008, and have since done the Business English course, the English Grammar course, TEYL and now the Cert.(TM)TESOL up-grade course. 

I thought about it for some time, but decided to do the up-grade course for two reasons - interest in the subjects, and to continue my professional development. I found the upgrade course very thought provoking. The background knowledge of phonetics and phonology in Module 1 was very interesting, as was the introduction to linguistics covered in Module 2. 

The Final Assignment was the most challenging part of the course. Researching the distinction between language acquisition and language learning is relevant for English language teachers, and evaluating my own experience of language learning and teaching helped to make it more personal and memorable. 

I've learned so much, and look forward to putting some of that knowledge to good use. 

I have found all the tutors at GE to be very professional, and the service is outstanding. Course work is marked quickly, and queries are often answered the same day. My tutor was very supportive, and she always gave very helpful comments on my work. Thank you, Clare, for all your help and encouragement. 

I'm a bit sad that I have finished with GE, but am happy with the time that I was a GE trainee. Many thanks to everyone at Global English.

Great clarity: the reader knows what is being presented, why, and what is expected from them, and where they are in relation to everything else in the course - clear well-thought out progression

There is continual encouragement for 'Further Research' for those wishing to go a bit deeper / build up their teaching material/examples, as well as many original teaching ideas.

There is continual support and reassurance and students are always clear how many points are awarded for a certain tasks.
