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.

A great course! It is a well planned and goes light taking into consideration that the learners work as teachers. I have become a great fan of Dr. Dixon and hope to learn more in the modules to come.

You have learned a lot of skills, the most important of which is knowledge acquisition, and the teacher must be representative but not representative and the teacher must not burn and continue

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

The only problem is that if no one has kept up with your pace, you are not able to be autonomous in the completion of your studies. This feature should be waivered if no one is available.

This was an outstanding introduction to teaching English, but as a practicing teacher of a different subject, I found it helpful for teaching any subject. I strongly recommend this course!
