Student Comments

I have absolutely loved this course and it has inspired me to reconsider teaching! The order of the course content was really easy to follow, feedback was quick and constructive and the different perspectives brought in throughout the course helped me to think outside the box and led to more creative lesson planning and further study.
Lucy Routledge, UK


Quick and clear responses from tutor, amount of material and practicality of use, kept ESOL focus in mind. Lots of good resources for future study and use.

“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.”
