TEFL training course in May, 2013
-The content was well-selected and the trainer was always lively and prepared.
-Need additional work on how to write/craft effective lesson plan. Run through step by step how to craft more effective lesson plan.
-Trainer is kind, content about culture is very useful. Would have liked more actual teaching practice.
-Compress some of the lessons where we act only as students and spend more time analyzing why the trainer did what he did, so we can apply them more explicitly.
-I thought the class was great. I would have liked to learn a bit more on the specifics of lesson planning and lesson conduction, but overall the trainer did a great job giving the class a well rounded education in teaching English in China.

TEFL training course in February, 2010
(Wendell Wilson) -- I attended the 7-day 'TEFL in China' and believe that this training should be attended by all individuals wishing to teach English in China, no matter at what level. The content of the course, the trainer and the location was very professional. I was overwhelmed with the amount of information and the scope of that information, all of which will only serve me to be a better teacher. I have a BA in Education and have taught in Korea for over 5 years, this course has raised my level of professionalism to a new level. I believe that if you are serious about teaching in China and wish to be the best that you can be, this is the course for you. If you are like me and wish to see the standard of English education and the respect of the profession of teaching spoken English in China raised then this is the course that you need to take. I cannot recommend enough this training for you as a teacher, for the teaching profession, for your students and for China as a whole.
(Hellen Wu) – The program is grooming and helping teachers to train students in better ways. The trainer is excellent. I really enjoyed the class, all the people, and got a lot out of it.
