Thank you for a wonderful experience. I really enjoyed my course especially the practical 2-day course. It was so worth it. Thanks to the trainer, I became more comfortable to stand up and teach in front of a group of people. It was very informative… I had a lot of fun and learned a lot about those little boxes that needs to be checked when planning and giving a lesson.

I had such a wonderful experience. The support throughout the course was amazing.

The assignments and exams were a lovely challenge. The practicals were a great way to put the theory learnt into action.

I would definitely recommend TEFL SA to others.
