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

From this course I have learned with the fundamentals in this course I feel confident enough to teach english to foreign students and I can also bring my own creativity to lessons which is actually encouraged. I have reviewed the tense systems which I haven?t reviewed since high school (I didn?t have a good grasp of before using the course units and study) I have learned some of things to expect being a tesol tutor, some of the job opportunities and the places that offer these job opportunities. I have gained knowledge of lesson planning and seen an example of a tesol lesson in unit 15 to see what to expect first hand. I hope to take what I have learned and be able to teach english to foreign students in china and vietnam as I have visited as a tourist before and saw many job opportunities for english teachers there and would love to make it a working holiday. I am always looking for an excuse to spend more time there and what better way than helping the local people learn english. Not having the confidence or experience was off putting though some tutors there have no experience or training I wanted to have some confidence and exposure to some training before going that route. I?m hoping to set up a job before I go, I know they usually expect you to contract to a certain amount of time.
