Learners are also given an understanding of basic techniques founded on those principles, such as teacher talk, looking “ridiculous” in order to lower the affective filter, and networking.

Simply amazing. Loved every single minute of it. I feel myself a much better teacher, I’ve learnt how to see resources to give a better class as well as offer my students better practices of learning.

This is a very useful course as I begin my studies to prepare to teach English abroad. ASU is a recognized university and the price is very reasonable. I look forward to the next course in the series.

Really instructive. At first I thought it might be a bit difficult for me since I've not studied anything related to teaching, but it is well organized so that you can follow it easily.

Very advisable.

Excellent introduction to the main theory of language acquisition, good learning practices, and a very important thing: the theme about avoiding teacher burn out, which normally is underestimated.

The course material is excellent. I never thought that teaching language had a scientific approach. The idea's discussed are truly revolutionary. The concepts are explained with good examples.

Muy reflexivo. Ayuda a aclarar la enseñanza a través de metáforas fáciles. Las actividades son sencillas aunque requiere sustentar los comentarios. Ayuda mucho si se ha estado frente a grupo.

Utterly useful, inspiring and fully detailed. So very clever to include a module on how to avoid teacher burnout. The i + 1 approach was simply amazing and gave me food for thought. Brilliant
