“Hi there future English instructors, I started my Certificate in TESOL through INTESOL WORLDWIDE in 1999 and was awarded my certificate in January 2000. At that time I was due to exchange my tourist visa for a work permit in Japan. To my surprise I was given a 3 year ‘Specialist in Humanities and International Services’ visa. I wasn’t degree qualified, and had average grades in my GSCE’s and A-Levels, so I believe I was given this extended visa solely on the strength of my Certificate in TESOL and the company behind the program, INTESOL WORLDWIDE. My American friends were only ever given one year visas, which meant they were forced to renew them yearly by taking a trip out of the country, then they had to wait a while before they could come back in, which was time consuming and expensive. I am grateful for the training I received through INTESOL WORLDWIDE and for the experiences I had during my three year stay in Japan, awarded to me by the Japanese Government. I have continued a career in TESOL and am currently running my own language company in Northern Ireland.
Good Luck”

“I have recently completed a TESOL qualification at Regents English Language Centre in Nantwich, Cheshire and I wish to let you know of my total satisfaction with the entire course. Although extremely challenging, the entire staff were cooperative, friendly and helpful throughout and every module was taught with great effectiveness and enthusiasm. I do not think I could have chosen a better place to undertake such a course and although I do not share the religious beliefs of the centre, this was never a problem. The whole course was conducted with skill and complete professionalism and I would be happy to recommend Regents [Nantwich centre] to anyone. ”

“I really enjoyed the teaching practice at Nantwich. I was so nervous when I went but Jean and all the staff really put me at ease and were very helpful. I enjoyed the observation classes and then progressed to teaching. My Northern Ireland accent was really useful for those students sitting exams the following week as they had a very different voice to listen to! The feedback from the staff was excellent and their comments will help in my development. I was very interested in the different aspects that were offered to the students. They received an interesting variety of teaching topics and this widened their vocabulary and speaking ability. The students worked hard and yet the atmosphere was not at all stressful. I fondly remember the poems one class wrote about chocolate, and the discussion one class had about talents and skills. This developed the students’ thinking skills as well as the ability to put their thoughts into English words. The whole experience was extremely worthwhile and to be recommended to anyone completing an ESOL teaching course, or a student learning English. My thanks to all who made it possible. I will never forget it. Thanks again. ”

“Tutor was exceptional! Extremely knowledgeable and able to convey material in a simple manner. Extremely patient as well. Course content was diverse. The range of topics covered was perfect. From what to teach, how to teach, to what we do when we leave here. Excellent. I don’t feel lost. Everyone (teacher and director) were excellent and understanding of what students need. Emotionally as well. Not once felt unguided. Don’t change. You are all such wonderful people!”

Thank you SO much for being such a good host. Heather felt like she was with her second family. I have been at peace in my heart knowing she is with good people such as all of you. Please do not leave Crete until I am able to visit you all! That is my latest goal-to visit Crete and Victor and Mihaela. With Heather’s support I am sure we can make it happen. And if your travels ever take you to the United States and to the state of Ohio, you will find a small suburb near Toledo and Detroit Michigan called Maumee (Maw mee). That is where you will find a family ready to welcome you at any time. I might even fix you that yummy American potato salad !!! (reference to Heather’s use of this recipe for her authentic materials lesson). Thank you so much for being the friend that you are and may God bless you.

“I expected an intensive course, and there’s a lot of ground covered in four weeks, but I was surprised by the quality and the holistic/human course delivery. The trainer was very generous. Provided a model of how to create an environment for growth and learning. Generously shared knowledge and skills. Offered support, time, respected individual styles. Always there, always present, always herself. The accommodation was perfect. Good to have a quiet space and all the hotel spaces for meeting and chatting. There is nothing I read before coming on the course that prepared me for the potential for personal growth that Mihaela made possible. Maybe you could find the words cos’ I can’t. Thank you for being here.”

“Amazing! Couldn’t have wished for a more relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Everything is in one place: school, rooms, pool, pool bar. So important on such an intensive course. Our trainer was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about all aspects of ESOL teaching. Always calm and able to answer any questions put to her Support was excellent even when our trainer was very busy she would stop and help. Never made us feel like we couldn’t knock on her door. Mihaela and Victor were the perfect hosts. I will highly recommend both the course and the hotel to anyone interested in a TESOL course. ”

“After researching various TESOL courses I decided to train with INTESOL because they ran a distance learning course that was affordable and that gave me the flexibility to complete the work over a longer period of time. My only dilemma was whether this qualification would be accepted worldwide and stand up against the well known Trinity and Cambridge TEFL certificates. Lynda Hazelwood, the Course Director at INTESOL, assured me that the qualification was accredited through the correct channels and that I shouldn’t find any difficulties finding excellent contracts with the INTESOL Certificate in TESOL.

I found the course easy to follow, and if I needed help with anything I just needed to pick up the phone and ask for advice, one of the team at INTESOL would always call me back and spend as much time as I needed on the phone to go through exercises or grammar points that I was unsure of. The course materials were interesting and gave me the knowledge that I needed to begin Teaching English as a Second Language.

I qualified as an ESOL Teacher with INTESOL in 1998 and immediately found employment with a Language School in my home town of Plymouth. Since that time I’ve worked in numerous Language schools from Summer Schools to Business Schools Teaching English at Masters Level, including schools in foreign countries such as Thailand and France. The INTESOL Certificate in TESOL has been invaluable and has enabled me to travel and work, as well as helping me to secure employment within the National Education System in England.

“After a bit of research on ways of getting a TESOL qualification I decided to go with INTESOL because of the flexibility that the remote learning course offered me. It was everything that I hoped it would be, thorough, detailed and challenging, and it is set up in such a way that help is always at hand if you need it.

My tutor, Vince, was a star and was always on the end of an email for advice or guidance on little things I could improve and the other staff were just as helpful, regardless of how awkward my questions might be. As it is a distance learning course you do have to be self-motivated and put the hours in, but it’s a great way to learn.

Finally, INTESOL even helped me to find a teaching placement near to where I live and set everything up for me, so all I had to do was go and teach! Although I thought this might be made more difficult because of the way I gained my teaching qualification, it was really easy and everything I’d learned slipped into place so that my placement school offered me a job! I don’t think that would have happened if I’d gained by qualification any other way or with any other company. Thanks Lynda, and thanks Vince.”

“I’ve enjoyed working with my tutor, Vince Ferrer, and I greatly appreciate his comments and suggestions. I hope I can be the effective teacher that he has nurtured me to be! There is hopefully a teaching job in South Korea for me so my TESOL certificate will be of great use to me. Many thanks.”
