I took TESOL for 1 month with wonderful and nice teacher and classmates. It was amazing, because I could learn plan for teaching another students! in the class, the atmosphere that allows us to ask any small questions, which made me feel comfortable to make mistake.
Everyone understands things on their own pace, so teacher try to teach in different ways, using different words, so we can all understand. Also, I had great opportunity to teach students. Thank you, SGIC!
