Great provider of training. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenter.

I enjoyed the course and found it useful. It went through some of the finer points of grammar, which assisted me in consolidating my knowledge. I have long felt that the English teaching subjects that I completed at university as part of my Master of Teaching course did not provide enough time to delve deeply into the aspects of English/English teaching due to the duration of the course. I therefore feel that completing this course has helped me to ‘shore up’ my own knowledge as an educator.
