TESOL Videos - TESOL review from Ruba
This TESOL review is from Ruba. She is British-Syrian and recently completed the 120-hour TEFL/TESOL course with tutor support. Choosing the tutored version of the course also allowed Ruba to receive a 50-hour course in teaching young learners free of charge. She enjoyed both courses as the material was well written and visually appealing. She also liked the FAQ page on the Website as it answered all her answers.

This will serve as very useful feedback to plan future lessons and help the students achieve their goals.
