After having worked as an English language teacher for eight years (three years in a language school in Shanghai and five years in adult community-learning settings in the UK), I decided it was time to get fully qualified and so I did the Dip. TESOL via distance learning from August 2010 to August 2012.
I researched various options on the internet and am so pleased that I chose to study with St. George International. I found the course very good in terms of its content, tutor feedback, method of delivery and in-built flexibility; it’s an ideal way of combining work and study and is not fixed to a particular location; so if you’re faced with a change of employment or location (which I myself had been expecting), the course will accommodate your changing circumstances. The practical block, (though very stressful) is short, convenient and a neatly-packaged whole which, unlike many similar courses, is independent of your employment.
Finally, I can say thanks to St. George International for helping to make me a fully-qualified English language teacher!
