“This course was perfect for me as it was an introduction to the teaching world. They provide you with teaching techniques so you can develop your own skills. By doing a lot of classroom activities, I learnt how to create my own lesson plans and developed my classroom management skills, which was very important.The teaching practice is really rewarding when you can give a good class, and you feel that your students are able to improve their English. If you really want to become a teacher one day this is the first step.”
