I have been teaching since 1985 and have been teacher training since 1998. Here is what some people have said about me.
Matt, London ” I thought that the weekend would involve sitting in a class, listening to theory and taking notes in a very diligent tweed-and-leather-elbow-patch kind of way. How wrong could I be? I had a truly fantastic time, everyone got into the spirit of things and the teaching was engaging and fun. I really think it was one of those life changing events that you hear people talk about and I’m so glad that I’ve experienced one as well.”
Patricia, Paris: I have now completed the course and can I say how fantastic it was. Jeremy Taylor was really excellent, very charismatic and a wonderful teacher. I have been teaching since 1979 and have been a Head of Dept (History) where I have observed many teachers, so I feel I know an excellent teacher when I see one.
I have informed my bosses here how good the course was and how they should consider Some form of INSETn TEFL training for all our staff.
Joachim Wiesner: “Thank you again for having come to Vorarlberg. From what the participants told me, it was a really successful session and I will communicate that also to the Pädagogische Hochschule.”
Lenka R, “Jeremy’s linguistic capabilities are phenomenal”
Fiona M, I just wanted to write and say a huge thank you for this weekend in London, I can honestly say it was the best weekend I’ve had in ages!
