What Our Students Say

The TESOL course at SIA is well planned and most of the time it leads to independent learning, which is required from a teacher to keep learning new knowledge with limited assistance but unlimited access to materials. Therefore, it enhances considerable critical thinking skills and self-reflection. The course is practical and clear cut because I can apply the knowledge acquired to my teaching and it worked well with excellent and detailed guidance cum effective feedback from my trainer – Di Fowler. I really appreciate the service of the friendly staff and support at SIA to assist me in the process of my learning. The support provided is quick and timely not only via face-to-face meetings but also phone and emails.
