Student Comments

This is the 4th online course that I have done with Global English – I completed the Cert.(ES)TESOL in February 2008 and have since done the Business English course, the new English Grammar course and now the Teaching English to Young Learners course. I chose to do the TEYL course with GE as it includes teaching teenagers – many online TEYL courses only deal with teaching young learners up to age 12, but teaching teenagers is my area of particular interest.

I find the add-on courses that GE offers are a good way to continue my professional development – just reading a book isn’t the same because you don’t have to answer questions, don’t get any feedback, and don’t always remember the subject very well! I know that I can rely on a GE course to give me a good grounding in the subject, together with thought-provoking exercises and questions, and helpful comments on my written work. I have grown a lot as a teacher since I started my first course with GE in 2007, and have enjoyed all the courses that I have completed with them.

All the tutors at GE are very professional, answer queries quickly, and mark written work quickly. My thanks go particularly to my tutor for her help and support during this course and the Grammar course – thanks, Kerry, you’ve been an inspiration.

I commend the school and course appraisers unreservedly. A very 'adult' approach, solid content and both, expedient in operation and supportive in execution. Anyone wishing to gain an English Language Teaching certificate - could not get greater value for money anywhere on the internet; in my opinion... and believe me, I looked!
William Hammes

I found the course excellent in the classroom management area with lots of helpful tips (that seem to have come from an experienced teacher).  Thanks a lot, I really enjoyed this course.
