“I came to the ELA again after studying here two years ago because I found that it had really helped my English. The TKT course will be useful for my future as I would like to become an English teacher in a kindergarten in Korea. I have learnt a different way of teaching that is more focused on student communication, and in the teaching practice I could apply what I was learning during the course. The TKT teachers were really friendly and assisted me whenever I had any questions!”
