Chicago TEFL Course Grad

The course was brutal, but I couldn't possibly mean that in a more positive way. It taught me how to lesson plan and prepare like a teacher, handle the stress of being a teacher, and helped me to break out of my shell and improve my public speaking skills. After the class, I felt extremely confident that I can handle whatever comes my way in my teaching career.

The course was great! It covered all the aspects of teaching, and I have seen how it has translated directly into my teaching. Spain is the best! Amazing, really. I love it. I had never left the country before so this was a whole new experience.

The course was amazing. Luke and Melanie are tenured vets at teaching, and they passed on a lot of wisdom. I learned SO much in those four short weeks. I can't believe how much information they fit into that small amount of time. It was a lot of work, but it paid off. I literally use their methods in my current ESL classes.
