This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:

I have learnt how to present a lesson to a class in a more active manner that is engaging to the students. I have become aware of more activities and games that can be incorporated in the lessons. I have learnt how to research and present more extensive work regarding productive and receptive skills. I have gain knowledge on how to present a lesson to a group of business clients, what they need, expect and how they should be evaluated. I have gained some more insight on EFL methodology as well as resources to obtain lesson materials. I have learnt some more techniques on how to encourage and motivate students in the classroom, as well as some testing and correcting techniques that might be more appropriate according to the students? language level. I am currently using and adapting all the information, techniques and knowledge I have gained in my classroom. A good teacher in my opinion is not only an educator, but also a mentor and an inspiration to the students.
