Oman, Muscat

Again, after my PPTTC, pursuing TESOL was an incredible experience. The course and its contents are just accurate and involves explicit learning. I would also love if the Institute makes unlimited access for their students to the videos related to their respective course. Overall a great experience and I will always be looking forward to learn something new from ACT and keep upgrading my knowledge.

My experience was really good in these 7 months. I got to know various teaching aspects how to deal with young learners and autism kids and learning Business English was quiet helpful to me. It has been a truly invaluable learning experience for me. I want you to know that I have learnt so much from all of your constructive input and guidance throughout each lesson of the course. You have helped me to understand where my strengths and weaker aspects lie, and what areas of my answering questions I need to pay attention to. Thank you for getting my assignments back to me as promptly as you have, and thank you for making this course so enjoyable.

The TESOL English language certification course from the Asian College of Teachers was comprehensive and well structured. It has given me a very solid grounding in teaching English both online and at language schools.
