I want to mention two eminent personalities here namely Mr.Aryan Awasthi sir my academic coordinator and Raichal ma'am my programe coordinator who helped me a lot to complete my course. I extend my sincere thanks to Intesol Kolkata. Aryan sir was really a mentor and his concern was remarkable.
Well elaborated course with all the details needed. Academic tutor was excellent and very helpful and approchable.
I had a pleasant experience overall. Right from the beginning all those concerned with the course were approachable and responsive. The course was educational and enriching. I have no complaints.
My experience was wonderful. I had a lot to learn as a trainer .A learning experience to cherish for a lifetime . The trainer Ms. Mandvi Roy was brilliant in her teaching . Thank you Intesol.
It's incredibly interesting even on online doing TESOL course. My hearty thanks to Rachel, Amrita and Mandy for such an effort to make possible and lovely classroom. It's worth getting knowledge of teaching unknown methods for the benefit of the students in the future.
Thank You so much Intesol India. Finally awarded with the 140 Hour Certificate in TESOL with Teaching Practice under INTESOL INDIA, a unit of INTESOL WORLDWIDE, CHESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM. You have impacted my life in a grand way. INTESOL has changed me for the better. Also heartfelt gratitude to my amazing trainers Sagorika Mam & Amrita Ghosh who have influenced my life in their own unique ways. Much respect. Qualifying Tesol wouldn't have been possible if I had met only one of you. Also my gratitude goes towards Roy Sir and Rachel Mam, for their sincerity towards me. God Bless the entire Team.
Through this online TESOL course, I have learnt that no matter whether it is in class training or via zoom meeting, if we have a good and efficient trainer. we can always take home a good amount of wisdom and knowledge.
I got wonderful experience during the whole course of TESOL training. My mentor Aryan Awasthi provided all the learning materials on due time and supported me whenever I needed his help.i knew many new things required for better teaching learning and realised that it would have been more beneficial if I had had this opportunity long ago in the past. I am really very proud of my mentor for his dedication and support he rendered to me during the whole course. Now I extend my gratitude for his mentorship and guidance .very very thanks.

Very good one to one consultant support and they respond and provide valuable feedback. Overall exceeds my expectation and strongly recommend to those who wish to pursue and enhance their teaching career.
This course was suggested to me by an old friend of mine when I expressed my desire to become an English Trainer. Introduction to different methodologies were a real eye-opener for me. I am pretty confident that the methodologies taught are not limited to teaching alone and may include other languages as well. Every aspect of the course was well thought out and taught. Grammar was one aspect which could have been touched in a little more detailed way. Feedback sessions were the highlight throughout the course. Trainer feedback was extremely good. It was only the feedback that helped us to work on our weaknesses and ensured by the end of the course we were pretty confident with our lesson taking capabilities.
I had a memorable and awesome experience during this course. The course was precise yet intensive. It really built my confidence. The trainee Andy was too good in delivering the course. He gave us a lot of tips and insights of the course which really helped me choose the right path and career in my life.
It was a great experience doing TEFL. Never knew such teaching methods existed, especially helpful for the young learners or a beginner at a new language. Trainer was very good, giving unbiased feedback.
This 3 weeks journey just flew by. Every single day was a different learning experience, knowing new things. Our Trainer made us feel more comfortable. Until we understand a concept he never moves to another topic. Best teaching methodologies ever.
It was a good experience with INTESOL materials provided were up to date for today's education. Tutors were helpful and have always answered questions, be it anytime. Overall good. Thank you.
It was an amazing experience!
Has been a good experience in terms of learning and practicing concepts. The tutor has always been willing to share knowledge, guide and mentor throughout the course. The support staff have been quite co-operative in understanding my needs and assisting throughout the course. The overall learning experience with INTESOL has been rewarding and fulfilling.
Very supportive staff, proper response was given with proper guidance.
It was very interesting, something I did not even know. The Tutor was very helpful. It was a great journey.
It’s my great pleasure to thank the sincere and intellectual heads behind this institution. I express my utmost gratitude to Mr. Andy and Mr. Aryan, for all their assistance and support they provided me. I can proudly say that I have worked well only because of them. The study materials and assignments were well planned and organized. Now I can face my students with self-confidence and can do my best in the teaching profession. I love English a lot and this course has given me a positive approach towards my future. I thank you all once again for everything and wish all the students and teachers to join this course and get benefitted soon…. Feel glad and proud like me. This surely can change your outlook to face this competitive world.
It was a great experience to do the diploma course through INTESOL India. My course coordinator Aryan sir’s guidance really helped me in completing the course easier and faster. I really appreciate the step by step approach of INTESOL in making a person understand the complete structure of Montessori.
I had a wonderful experience. The methodologies covered were the most useful aspect of the course. My Trainer Andy is fantastic in his own ways of encouraging, he has lot of patience.
I am grateful to INTESOL and my Trainer Sagorika for the amazing experience i had. Good Luck INTESOL and keep up the good work!!
Demo lessons and repeated practice were the most useful aspects of the course. Excellent feedback from the Trainer. Teaching practice with happy learners was very encouraging. Certainly will recommend the course to those who love to teach.
It was an amazing experience. Loved that the methodology we have been taught is not the stereotypical one. Teaching practice was out of this world.
All aspects of the course covered during the training were useful. Amazing learning experience. The Trainer was not only comprehensive in giving feedback was very motivating. I have already recommended this course to my friends.
Overall experience was very good, especially Mr Aryan Avasthi sir’s support was very satisfactory and all other staff involved they were always easy accessible and supportive.
My overall experience was great.
I really want to thanks INTESOL (everyone involved in it) for helping me to do this course (TESOL 120). I really enjoyed doing this course, indeed, this course is very much helpful to me as I am a teacher. It helped me to understand my audience (students) and guided me about my teaching methods. Now I can approach to my students with more confidence that my students will understand me and I too will understand them and also that now I can involve my all students in class to participate in learning. Thank you INTESOL.

Excellent support of staff and well prepared material.
It was an good experience and I learnt many new techniques to deliver my classes in an efficient way. I hope to get better opportunities with the help of this certification.
Good experience. Helpful and supporting.
While I would have liked to have a more dynamic course material where the student doesn't just read but may be, watches videos or something similar, it is still nice to understand the world of ESL through INTESOL before entering a classroom and stepping into the teacher's shoes. The staff is very supportive and encouraging. Their feedbacks on my completed assignments were the most invaluable to me since they cleared out any doubts/ misunderstandings I would have on the topic. It has been a pleasure to be a part of INTESOL as a student. I can't wait to see how this gives way to fruitful avenues.
It was a great learning experience.
I want to take up more courses from Intesol.
It was a great fun. I learnt many things. I enjoyed also. It will be useful for me if I used to get lesson plan and teaching materials to teach different level classes. However, overall it was excellent.
It was an enriching experience. The course content was relevant to this day and this generation. The course covered all content required to become a well versed teacher of English.
It was a very good experience! The training program was very comprehensive. I am so thankful for the support provided by the academic and the support staff.
It was a great experience with the course and the experiments, understanding level of the subjects were all amazing.
I’m working in Bangalore at Sherwood High School. I joined the course to improve my teaching skills and I feel far more confident teaching now. I thank INTESOL for having an amazing structure of the curriculum and for giving me the opportunity to be trained by an amazing trainer Andy, who had load of resources and experience to teach us. The best part of the training for me was preparing the lesson plan; learning the transactional processes and learning to assess by the 4 skills of receptive learning and productive learning also how to teach grammar using an activity to start off the lesson.
The Course gave me immense confidence in the field of teaching. It was simply great .Class management and lesson planning skills were the most useful aspects of the course and were worth learning. The trainer was able to give comprehensive feedback. I would recommend this course to many.
The Course taught me the importance of learning. Business English, classroom management and lesson planning were very useful for me. Every aspect of the course was important .The trainer was discursive. I would recommend this course to others.
The course was a wonderful learning experience. The training practice was the most useful aspect of the course. The trainer was very comprehensive in giving his feedback. I would definitely recommend this course.
The Course was amazing. I had a great time doing this course. Lesson planning was the most useful aspect of this course for me as it helped me engage my class with activities. The trainer was synoptic in giving feedback. This course would be recommended by me to all.
I have recently completed ONLINE TEFL 120 hrs Teacher Training program. The teaching material is very comprehensive and well planned. Brushing up basic grammar in the beginning, the course gradually moves over to more complex studies like Lesson Planning and Classroom management. But these lessons too are explained in a manner which is easy to comprehend and implement. The motivation from the tutor encouraged to perform better and better. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to others interested in TEFL teaching.

I will forever be grateful for both INTESOL WORLDWIDE and INTESOL India for the opportunity and knowledge you've shared and given me and for making me who I am now- A TEACHER.
It was an amazing experience! I enjoyed the Training Programme and gained so much knowledge from the materials which was provided. I am so thankful for the support provided by the staff. I feel great that I choose to study with INTESOL WORLDWIDE.
TEFL Course need a detail assessment and study which Intesol offers with guided support and appreciating approach - I recommend Intesol and wish them success.

"Hi there future English instructors, I started my Certificate in TESOL through INTESOL WORLDWIDE in 1999 and was awarded my certificate in January 2000. At that time I was due to exchange my tourist visa for a work permit in Japan. To my surprise I was given a 3 year 'Specialist in Humanities and International Services' visa. I wasn't degree qualified, and had average grades in my GSCE's and A-Levels, so I believe I was given this extended visa solely on the strength of my Certificate in TESOL and the company behind the program, INTESOL WORLDWIDE. My American friends were only ever given one year visas, which meant they were forced to renew them yearly by taking a trip out of the country, then they had to wait a while before they could come back in, which was time consuming and expensive. I am grateful for the training I received through INTESOL WORLDWIDE and for the experiences I had during my three year stay in Japan, awarded to me by the Japanese Government. I have continued a career in TESOL and am currently running my own language company in Northern Ireland. Good Luck"
"I have recently completed a TESOL qualification at Regents English Language Centre in Nantwich, Cheshire and I wish to let you know of my total satisfaction with the entire course. Although extremely challenging, the entire staff were cooperative, friendly and helpful throughout and every module was taught with great effectiveness and enthusiasm. I do not think I could have chosen a better place to undertake such a course and although I do not share the religious beliefs of the centre, this was never a problem. The whole course was conducted with skill and complete professionalism and I would be happy to recommend Regents [Nantwich centre] to anyone. "
"I really enjoyed the teaching practice at Nantwich. I was so nervous when I went but Jean and all the staff really put me at ease and were very helpful. I enjoyed the observation classes and then progressed to teaching. My Northern Ireland accent was really useful for those students sitting exams the following week as they had a very different voice to listen to! The feedback from the staff was excellent and their comments will help in my development. I was very interested in the different aspects that were offered to the students. They received an interesting variety of teaching topics and this widened their vocabulary and speaking ability. The students worked hard and yet the atmosphere was not at all stressful. I fondly remember the poems one class wrote about chocolate, and the discussion one class had about talents and skills. This developed the students' thinking skills as well as the ability to put their thoughts into English words. The whole experience was extremely worthwhile and to be recommended to anyone completing an ESOL teaching course, or a student learning English. My thanks to all who made it possible. I will never forget it. Thanks again. "
"Tutor was exceptional! Extremely knowledgeable and able to convey material in a simple manner. Extremely patient as well. Course content was diverse. The range of topics covered was perfect. From what to teach, how to teach, to what we do when we leave here. Excellent. I don't feel lost. Everyone (teacher and director) were excellent and understanding of what students need. Emotionally as well. Not once felt unguided. Don't change. You are all such wonderful people!"
'A message from mom' – Heather Washtak
Thank you SO much for being such a good host. Heather felt like she was with her second family. I have been at peace in my heart knowing she is with good people such as all of you. Please do not leave Crete until I am able to visit you all! That is my latest goal-to visit Crete and Victor and Mihaela. With Heather's support I am sure we can make it happen. And if your travels ever take you to the United States and to the state of Ohio, you will find a small suburb near Toledo and Detroit Michigan called Maumee (Maw mee). That is where you will find a family ready to welcome you at any time. I might even fix you that yummy American potato salad !!! (reference to Heather's use of this recipe for her authentic materials lesson). Thank you so much for being the friend that you are and may God bless you.
"I expected an intensive course, and there's a lot of ground covered in four weeks, but I was surprised by the quality and the holistic/human course delivery. The trainer was very generous. Provided a model of how to create an environment for growth and learning. Generously shared knowledge and skills. Offered support, time, respected individual styles. Always there, always present, always herself. The accommodation was perfect. Good to have a quiet space and all the hotel spaces for meeting and chatting. There is nothing I read before coming on the course that prepared me for the potential for personal growth that Mihaela made possible. Maybe you could find the words cos' I can't. Thank you for being here."
"Amazing! Couldn't have wished for a more relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Everything is in one place: school, rooms, pool, pool bar. So important on such an intensive course. Our trainer was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about all aspects of ESOL teaching. Always calm and able to answer any questions put to her Support was excellent even when our trainer was very busy she would stop and help. Never made us feel like we couldn't knock on her door. Mihaela and Victor were the perfect hosts. I will highly recommend both the course and the hotel to anyone interested in a TESOL course. "
"The course was better than I expected. Course content very thorough. Trainer awesome, knowledgeable, helpful. Always on hand and glad to help. Accommodation perfect, could not have asked for better!"
"After researching various TESOL courses I decided to train with INTESOL because they ran a distance learning course that was affordable and that gave me the flexibility to complete the work over a longer period of time. My only dilemma was whether this qualification would be accepted worldwide and stand up against the well known Trinity and Cambridge TEFL certificates. Lynda Hazelwood, the Course Director at INTESOL, assured me that the qualification was accredited through the correct channels and that I shouldn't find any difficulties finding excellent contracts with the INTESOL Certificate in TESOL.
I found the course easy to follow, and if I needed help with anything I just needed to pick up the phone and ask for advice, one of the team at INTESOL would always call me back and spend as much time as I needed on the phone to go through exercises or grammar points that I was unsure of. The course materials were interesting and gave me the knowledge that I needed to begin Teaching English as a Second Language.
I qualified as an ESOL Teacher with INTESOL in 1998 and immediately found employment with a Language School in my home town of Plymouth. Since that time I've worked in numerous Language schools from Summer Schools to Business Schools Teaching English at Masters Level, including schools in foreign countries such as Thailand and France. The INTESOL Certificate in TESOL has been invaluable and has enabled me to travel and work, as well as helping me to secure employment within the National Education System in England.
"After a bit of research on ways of getting a TESOL qualification I decided to go with INTESOL because of the flexibility that the remote learning course offered me. It was everything that I hoped it would be, thorough, detailed and challenging, and it is set up in such a way that help is always at hand if you need it.
My tutor, Vince, was a star and was always on the end of an email for advice or guidance on little things I could improve and the other staff were just as helpful, regardless of how awkward my questions might be. As it is a distance learning course you do have to be self-motivated and put the hours in, but it's a great way to learn.
Finally, INTESOL even helped me to find a teaching placement near to where I live and set everything up for me, so all I had to do was go and teach! Although I thought this might be made more difficult because of the way I gained my teaching qualification, it was really easy and everything I'd learned slipped into place so that my placement school offered me a job! I don't think that would have happened if I'd gained by qualification any other way or with any other company. Thanks Lynda, and thanks Vince."
"I've enjoyed working with my tutor, Vince Ferrer, and I greatly appreciate his comments and suggestions. I hope I can be the effective teacher that he has nurtured me to be! There is hopefully a teaching job in South Korea for me so my TESOL certificate will be of great use to me. Many thanks."
