Great small group setting

I loved the small group setting. It gave more time for questions during class, and the one on one feedback was fantastic. I can say I would not have been able to teach English without the course. The main reasons are the lack of knowledge about how to create group activities for the 4 skill areas, present information such as grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation, and how to write a lesson plan. Without those 3 skills I do not know how anyone could say they can teach English effectively.

Invaluable experience

The practice teaching classes were invaluable. They really brought everything that we learned in class together and provided practical real-life context to what we were studying. I think that we were able to complete just the right amount of practice teaching classes. I feel adequately prepared and feel confident that I have experience teaching students from the local community, not just my native English speaking peers.
Ellie is extremely knowledgeable and I feel so confident going to Lima to find a job, and anywhere in the world for that matter, having learned from her. I loved the delivery of the course. It was intensive without being stressful as well as informative and interesting.
I loved the small class size. I feel like I was able to get really close with the other trainees and the TEFL Trainer. I don’t think I would have gotten as much out of the course if there was a group of 10-20 students because there would not have been as much personal care and attention paid to each student.
I know for certain that I would not have been able to teach English without the course. The knowledge that Ellie has gained through years of teaching English all over the world in a variety of jobs is priceless. To be able to learn from someone with so much knowledge in the field that I am entering and to be able to pick her brain is such a lucky experience. I would highly recommend the course to anyone who thinks that it may be something that they’d like to do.
Thanks so much for turning someone who was terrified of public speaking into a confident English teacher. I will be forever grateful for that.

Excellent course

My TEFL trainer was excellent in all aspects. I enjoyed the experience with the other 4 trainees, being a smaller group we became close and I imagine had more one to one time with the trainer than a larger class. The practice classes were essential, in my opinion, to learn to be an effective teacher. I think the quantity of practice lessons is correct at 10 and having the different levels and ages is also very useful. I wouldn’t have even attempted to teach English without this course.

Incredibly useful & helpful course

The practice teaching classes were incredibly useful. It gave an idea of what to expect with all levels of learners and all age-groups of students. The classes also proved useful to give me an idea as a teacher, of what activities work, what activities don’t work, how much time teaching certain grammatical topics usually take and how to present instructions and activities to students in a way that they would understand. The feedback from Ellie, my TEFL trainer after each class helped for me to gauge what areas I needed to improve on and what I could do to improve on them.
Ellie was incredibly helpful in answering any questions I had, as well as guiding me on all things related to being an English Teacher living in a foreign country. Her experiences of moving to Peru and teaching English were not only insightful but very interesting and informative. Her delivery of the course offered a hands-on practical approach to finding work and being a successful EFL teacher.
Being in a smaller group of trainees allowed more time for one-on-one feedback and discussion, not only separate from, but also within the group itself. All trainees had ample time for discussions within class and we all had the opportunity to really get to discuss different points of view and hash out differing opinions of class activities and other relevant TEFL matters.
I think I would have been able to teach English without the course but it would have been a very confusing and stressful situation. This course gives me the confidence not only to teach but to better understand students and to use materials in such a way that the grammar/vocabulary involved becomes clear to understand and use.
I appreciated the fact that the course at Sunset Club was carried out in a very casual setting, open to discussion and debate. Regardless of this, it was also very enlightening and offered opportunities for getting to know Peruvians in a more rural part of the country, in terms of the way they think and live, which is much different from those in the bigger city areas, which cater more to tourists.

An Awakening Experience

Every day proved to be an awakening experience. I kept saying (to myself), how in the world does our trainer gather such a firm foundation in the knowledge that she is bringing to the class? The delivery of the material was very engaging . . . and her energy was like “the Energizer bunny” – never ending!
The practice teaching classes made the class gel into a unified product. The 10-hours was just right as this allowed for a building of the necessary skills in developing lesson plans, working on classroom organization skills, and working with various levels of students under constantly changing situations.
I am very thankful for this experience. The trainer brought a group of individuals unrelated in many ways into a group of cohesiveness that was able to produce a quality product (TESOL) in 4-weeks.
