“I really enjoyed the course, even though it hurt my head to dissect something I do every day without thinking! It was designed so that the skills required built up gradually and I ended up looking forward to the next day's study. Now I'm straining at the leash to get out into that big wide world of TEFL and I hope to spend the next 15 years travelling the globe and doing something that can only be described as fun! My best wishes to the team…send you a postcard? ” Lizzy Lewis
