I had been in the same job for years and was stuck in a rut, but I was determined to change things. A friend suggested taking a TESOL course; it was a complete change of direction, so unlike my previous work, but I`m so pleased I enrolled at SGI, choosing the part time course. Even with a full time job, it was possible to complete the course, the work load being quite evenly spaced and the deadlines realistic.  

It was a total breath of fresh air, so rewarding and enjoyable.

The instructors were both supportive and constructive, help was always available and the feedback after our teaching sessions was invaluable. I made some wonderful new friends too, my fellow trainees providing support and ideas for each other, many of whom I am still in contact with, from their various locations around the world!

I could not have imagined this 12 months ago, but enrolling on the TESOL course at SGI was just the beginning of the life changing experience I was looking for, as I am now living and teaching in Japan.
