I am a volunteer with local refugee support groups and am hoping to be part of a new conversation café shortly, so I thought it would be helpful to learn some more about teaching English.

I have just completed the 10 hour Enter English course and found it very helpful and enjoyable.

I found that it reinforced my existing knowledge, which was reassuring, but it definitely added so many new insights and ideas and packed a lot of information into a very short course. I particularly appreciated the signposting to some great resources, too.

I look forward to putting this into practice.

I undertook this short course to enable me to help asylum seekers in my town. I am fortunate that I work with an experienced teacher who plans the lessons. The course has certainly given me a much better insight into the methodology used. I found the grammar lessons very useful – although I had to refresh myself on the technical grammar names (it’s many years since I thought about structure). One thing that really sticks with me is the importance of not speaking slowly or in a raised voice as this could be misinterpreted by the learner as being condescending. I loved the lesson ideas. They were simple and effective. I also enjoyed the videos, listening first hand to teachers’ experiences was reassuring and informative. Thank you

I have recently started to volunteer at a refugee centre and found it quite daunting how to interact with the refugees who spoke very little English – which was most of them. The course has really given me confidence and actual tools to use to aid me. I found the interviews with teachers working with refugees extremely useful and gave me the confidence to continue. They were honest about their nervousness at first and how smiling and just be friendly and welcoming was the main thing to remember. The interactive word games were great ideas, and going over the grammar very useful too, along with the details of how other languages differ from our own.

To be able to do the course on line and in one’s own time was perfect.

This course took you through the whole process from thinking about why a church might start a group to support English language learning, to teaching styles, classroom organisation and grammar. It took a module at structure, which made it easy to put down and slot into the time available. Feedback was rapid and courteous. The links to external resources at the end of each module were really helpful. I recommend it

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. I am a new volunteer working with asylum seekers, and although I have many years teaching experience under my belt I felt out of my comfort zone once the classes started.

This course really got me thinking about the needs of our students apart from just the need to learn English. This led to us helping our students to make contact with the local library for computer access, and also the local Sports Centres who provide some physical activity free of charge.

I found the videos with other volunteers sharing their experiences and tips helpful. I think one of the best pieces of advice given was to smile even if sometimes neither student nor teacher knew what we were trying to say to each other!!! Thank goodness for ‘google’, though I am finding I am using it less and less as I find other ways to express meaning.

The hardest part of the course for me was the grammar section and the one where I lost marks. If I did this again I would go over the lesson at least twice before attempting to answer the questions. Maybe I should have paid more attention at school all those many years ago!

Thank you once again for all your help.

I have enjoyed the Enter English Course a lot. It was very detailed and all you need to know to start teaching English to refugees. There are many tips and practical ideas. I liked the fact that I could do this course in my own time. The videos and test questions keep it entertaining. I recommend it!

I have recently started volunteering to teach conversation skills to some local Afghan refugees and, with no background in ESOL, was pleased to have the opportunity to undertake this short Enter English course with Global English. I found the course very relevant and helpful.

In particular I appreciated hearing the experiences of other, more experienced volunteers, seeing some model ‘classroom’ practice, and the sections of the course offering practical advice on how to teach particular skills. The course ended with a series of links to a wide array of resources.

My only suggestion would be to review the balance between the practical elements and the more theoretical sections covering the different parts of English grammar. That said, I thought the course was easy to follow with the facility to ‘rewind’ if necessary, very clearly constructed with ongoing feedback, and contained a wide range of interesting material. As well, any queries were answered very promptly with a reassuring personal touch.

Overall, I thought this was an excellent introduction to ESOL teaching.

I wanted to complete a 70 hour TESOL course to get some understanding of what is involved in teaching English to speakers of other languages and grasp the basics of how this is achieved.

The course was well introduced and was organised in well planned stages, covering the practical skills in organizing a course as well as giving a basic teaching in the grammatical structure of the English language.

There were a lot of links to free online resources that can be used for further development in teaching skills. And also to links of helpful prepared material that can be used in lesson planning.

The tutorial help was excellent and any help asked for received a swift reply.

For an older person who has not “formally” studied for some years, it was a challenge, but personal encouragement was given as well as practical help to complete the course.

That is why I have assessed the course as being generally “excellent”

I completed the course three years ago and can still recall however the teaching, course participation and feedback from my assessor, provided me with a wealth of knowledge and understanding of how ESL students learn and how best to plan lessons for a positive outcome with happy, willing students whose enthusiasm to learn is a delight to see.

The course’s very gradual increase in skills, understanding and knowledge make it achievable to interested students and the personal course tutor is always available for guidance and advice.

I would recommend this course , as teaching ESL students is so rewarding.

Having heard about an increasing number of refugees coming to UK, I decided it would be good to do an ESOL Course and become better prepared to help them.

The Global English ESOL Course was just what I wanted. It could be done in my own time on-line, and I completed it in about 2 months. It also helped me think of how I could use the material in a Christian setting, which was very good.

At the time I had a mature Czech Republic mother living with me to improve her English. So she read the notes out aloud (with help from me) and I answered the questions! It helped both of us.

While doing the course I noticed one or two blips in the material and found it easier to answer the final question on my pc rather than my iPad. I realise that lesson planning takes time and needs me to be more skilled in using resources on the web.

Overall, I’m grateful to the person who sent me an email about this Christian ESOL Course and will recommend it to others.
