I found the IELTS Specialist course easy to navigate and fun to do. I was a little surprised however, that a digital version of my certificate was not available for download, which was a little disappointing considering I cannot claim to hold the certificate if I cannot provide proof.

The 10 hour virtual teaching practice course was well worth it's value! I learned various ways to introduce teaching English to foreign learners. Michelle Benson, my tutor, was extremely helpful and caring and she was clear in any instructions she gave. Michelle's teaching method was very effective. Every aspect of the course was brilliantly handled. It was really easy to follow, interactive, and also easy to understand. I'm extremely excited to use this qualification and I believe I have developed personally and professionally by taking part in this course.
