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.

I tried a few different TESOL courses from different universities, and this one is the best. I like the informal style of the lessons - it was fun, yet very helpful and informative.

Solid, but does not always provide adequate knowledge for future courses. Dramatic visuals instructors use to try to keep students engaged can sometimes be annoying to watch.

It is a very basic course. It is very useful if you are just starting with the TESOL world, but you may want to skipped it if you have some background knowledge in the field.

Excellent foundation course; particularly helpful was the use of metaphors. The weekly essays were thoughtful statements that encouraged reflection on what had been learned.
