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 gained an absolute passion for teaching, during the course, wherever I went I found myself buying and accumulating teaching aids, designing my own games or adding a little colour/personal touch to existing material and games. For me, I learnt that you have to enjoy doing something in order to be able to do it well, this not only applies to teaches but to students alike. My lessons are for sure going to be filled with plenty visuals, lots of colour, and tons of fun. I can?t wait to get started. I am hoping to be able to teach from home, I have already designed a classroom totally conducive to having fun while learning. I have learnt to have lots of patient, also with myself, there were a couple of times during the course where the unit was a real ?humdinger?, and I thought I would never grasp it, but I learnt that sometimes you need to take a break and focus on something else in order for ?the penny to drop?. I learnt that motivation plays an integral part of learning. Thank you Tania, for ?rooting? me along the way !
