Student Comments


A well structured course with material of a very high standard, which was very clear and informative. Communication with Global English was always straightforward and any emails replied to promptly. The assignments were challenging and always marked and returned in very good time, with helpful comments and suggestions. All in all, a very enjoyable course and one from which I felt I benefited greatly. I look forward now to studying a further course with Global English, such as teaching business English, and to doing some teaching. Thank you to all concerned!
Petra Firkins

The quality of everything provided by Global English truly blew me away. All contact was personalised and always accurate(it was amazing just how much relevant information everyone at Global English knew about me, from personal interests to current goals/plans), and I would always finish reading everything from GE with a huge smile on my face. The course was brilliantly thorough and informative without overloading me with unnecessary information. The website is always being updated with news of careers and improvements. Everything was absolutely balanced to perfection and I wouldn't change a thing. 
Tatiana Parshina

The module 5 was really interesting and useful. Once again an amazingly clear helpful, well thought out study booklet. I  have used some ideas from it with my students. In particular my studies gave me inspiration as to how best to help a Cantonese year 8  deaf student! I  used the online phonemic chart for him and the “shwa” exercises, too with most of my students. I then printed the chart and highlighted with a red pen any problem areas. When my headmistress needed feedback on the deaf pupil’s progress I had organs of speech chart /”shwa” exercises and annotated phonemic chart print out already in the pupils file to show her. She was amazed and delighted!
Rosemary Edney

I can't believe I'm almost there to be honest... Though I have to say I am so glad that I went for the advanced level. The information this level gives just takes you to a different level of teaching. It is so inspirational. I actually have 3 students already and my own teaching model. All this extra learning adds to the level of professionalism...and really adds a lot of weight to your credibility. And confidence of course when you are a newbie like me :-)
Lynn Taylor

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

The course contains super visual reinforcement of concepts through YouTube videos that are normally real 'live' teaching situations. 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.

Course Description

Our interactive courses are innovative and take a fresh approach to training to teach English. 

With shorter modules that you can take on a computer (notebook/laptop or PC/Mac) or on a tablet device (ipad/android/windows etc.), this course offers full flexibility for training on the go. After watching an initial welcome video, you can dive straight in to the course or pick and choose the order of the modules that you work through.

Works successfully with touch-screen pcs so you can rearrange the course size with minimal loss of resolution.

Access your personal tutor who will mark your work and the opportunity to share teaching ideas on the Global English forum, all via your own student area.

Click on the further research tabs in each module to explore the hundreds of TEFL website links we have found for you to take your knowledge further.

Built in HTML5, you can take this course from anywhere with a good internet connection.  You will also need to be able to access YouTube videos from where you are located. 

“What I like about this new layout is that it’s easier to go back to a section if you need to revise it, assisted by the fact that the information is more segmented, given in smaller bites and that when you hover your mouse over a page on the Dashboard page, it gives you a title.”
