“My greatest applause goes to my tutor Mihaela Dascalu. Without her instruction I would not have come this far. My tutor was direct, available and helpful in her approach, but most importantly she put as much effort into her comments and feedback as was required of me, the student, which I appreciated from the bottom of my heart. In my opinion, the quality of the course was first class. The whole course was well written, clear, interesting and well thought out. It was full of useful class-based activities which I will always refer to when I start teaching. The course structure and content was way better than I had imagined.

I was impressed by the practical methods and strategies that the student teachers are encouraged to use in an ESOL class, and also the structured approach to the course was easy to follow. I learned a lot about motivating students in a classroom, building their confidence, and supporting their language learning process.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my satisfaction to ‘INTESOL Worldwide’ for the wonderful online program which you are conducting at present. I also like to take this opportunity to show my gratitude to all of you for assigning Jean as my tutor. She is the best instructor I have ever come across. Without her guidance; I would have never completed this course or achieved my best results. I think, her professional approach to clear all my doubts, her advice to improve my standard, her motivation to keep up my positive thinking; gave me a lot of confidence in myself. It also helped me to get all my assignments completed on time. She is more than an asset to your institute and I wish her and the institute many more successes in the future.”

“I arrived in Diyarbakir, a city in the south east of Turkey and it’s fantastic. I am being treated very well and I’m overwhelmed by the treatment, in fact I’m being treated like a VIP wherever I go. I am happy in Turkey as I enjoy history and this area is packed with historical places. I am teaching at a ‘British Culture’ school and its sister organisation which is a children’s school. I am very grateful for the chance and I have been asked to find some teachers for summer so when this is confirmed I will ask yourself to forward some teachers and their details.”

“After a bit of research on ways of getting a TESOL qualification I decided to go with INTESOL because of the flexibility that the remote learning course offered me. It was everything that I hoped it would be, thorough, detailed and challenging, and it is set up in such a way that help is always at hand if you need it.

My tutor, Vince, was a star and was always on the end of an email for advice or guidance on little things I could improve and the other staff were just as helpful, regardless of how awkward my questions might be. As it is a distance learning course you do have to be self-motivated and put the hours in, but it’s a great way to learn.

Finally, INTESOL even helped me to find a teaching placement near to where I live and set everything up for me, so all I had to do was go and teach! Thanks Lynda, and thanks Vince.”

“After researching various TESOL courses I decided to train with INTESOL because they ran a distance learning course that was affordable and that gave me the flexibility to complete the work over a longer period of time. My only dilemma was whether this qualification would be accepted worldwide and stand up against the well known Trinity and Cambridge TEFL certificates. Lynda Hazelwood, the Course Director at INTESOL, assured me that the qualification was accredited through the correct channels and that I shouldn’t find any difficulties finding excellent contracts with the INTESOL Certificate in TESOL.

I found the course easy to follow, and if I needed help with anything I just needed to pick up the phone and ask for advice, one of the team at INTESOL would always call me back and spend as much time as I needed on the phone to go through exercises or grammar points that I was unsure of. The course materials were interesting and gave me the knowledge that I needed to begin Teaching English as a Second Language.”

“I really enjoyed the teaching practice at Nantwich. I was so nervous when I went but Jean and all the staff really put me at ease and were very helpful. I enjoyed the observation classes and then progressed to teaching. My Northern Ireland accent was really useful for those students sitting exams the following week as they had a very different voice to listen to!

The feedback from the staff was excellent and their comments will help in my development. I was very interested in the different aspects that were offered to the students. They received an interesting variety of teaching topics and this widened their vocabulary and speaking ability.

The students worked hard and yet the atmosphere was not at all stressful. I fondly remember the poems one class wrote about chocolate, and the discussion one class had about talents and skills. This developed the students’ thinking skills as well as the ability to put their thoughts into English words.

The whole experience was extremely worthwhile and to be recommended to anyone completing an ESOL teaching course, or a student learning English. My thanks to all who made it possible. I will never forget it. Thanks again.”

“Hi there, future English instructors, I started my Certificate in TESOL through INTESOL WORLDWIDE in 1999 and was awarded my certificate in January 2000. At that time I was due to exchange my tourist visa for a work permit in Japan.

To my surprise I was given a 3 year ‘Specialist in Humanities and International Services’ visa. I wasn’t degree qualified, and had average grades in my GSCE’s and A-Levels, so I believe I was given this extended visa solely on the strength of my Certificate in TESOL and the company behind the program, INTESOL WORLDWIDE. My American friends were only ever given one year visas, which meant they were forced to renew them yearly by taking a trip out of the country, then they had to wait a while before they could come back in, which was time consuming and expensive.

I am grateful for the training I received through INTESOL WORLDWIDE and for the experiences I had during my three year stay in Japan, awarded to me by the Japanese Government. I have continued a career in TESOL and am currently running my own language company in Northern Ireland. Good Luck.”

“I have had a very positive experience and am really pleased to have chosen INTESOL (which I did after a few days’ searching round on the Internet and comparing about 20 different distance ESOL options) and have in fact already recommended INTESOL to a friend. For me, with 2 small kids, distance learning has been the only way to go and I have had as much time as I wanted to do each module (which you don’t get with residential courses and not even with all distance courses) and I have no beefs whatsoever with the material, presentation or tutor (who has been fantastic). It has been a thoroughly positive experience.”

“Thanks for your many emails and help during the time I have been taking my TESOL course. You will be pleased to know that I have now completed the course, and have sent my grades to your Knutsford address to obtain my certificate.
I would like to say how much I enjoyed the course. I found that the modules got more and more interesting and I feel that I have learned a lot in a very short space of time. The trainers were excellent, and I found their comments (both positive and negative) were well put and highly informative. My special thanks go to Mr Reg Burgin who ended up marking the majority of my course, and was a great help.”
Mike Yelash
“I am writing to say how much I’ve enjoyed the TESOL course. It was a wonderful challenge, and the trainers were very helpful, offering useful advice. The course itself is easy to follow, covering all the relevant aspects regarding the teaching of English to foreign students. I have recommended it to several of my friends, and I am thinking of doing another course at a higher level at some time in the future. I am now looking forward to a career in teaching English thanks to your course – wonderful!”
