Doing Marian's TEFL course was such an eye-opener. I thought I knew quite a bit as I've done some teaching before, but she managed to stump us every night... and this is a group of highly educated native English speakers! Her energy was infectious and made us all strive to do our homework assignments to the best of our abilities. Marian believes in going the extra mile and visited us every day at ...

Nadia Moolman - TEFL graduate, March 2009 (Destination - South East Asia or Middle East)

When I arrived in South Africa, I didn't speak much English. My aim was to get into nursing but needed to improve my English before I could be accepted into a job in South Africa. Having completed 10 months of study at The Knowledge Workshop, I was able to gain a job working as a carer and hope to qualify as a nurse soon. My English has improved a lot, especially my speaking and confidence.

YungJae Shin - General English student 2013 (South Korea)

Having looked around at the various courses in Cape Town I came across the Knowledge Workshop. Immediately I was impressed with how professional and organised they were and I enrolled for the course that same day. I had 18 months teaching experience already under my belt and, like many, thought I was just doing the course so that I could get a job teaching in the East. I was very wrong. The intens...

Peter Murison - (EFL teacher South Korea)

I can think of a few adjectives to describe this course: concise; thought-provoking; interactive & fun; well-paced; content & process oriented. As a speech and language therapist by profession, the TEFL course has not only helped refine my theoretical knowledge but more importantly it has given me another avenue to explore. My plan to do TEFL teaching in Saudi Arabia has not worked out as anticipa...

Pammi-Joy Oppenheimer - (EFL teacher)

I did an intensive three-month course in General English and TOEFL preparation at The Knowledge Workshop. I had a really good time and learned a lot. My English has improved quickly because I had good teacher and studied in small groups. I am getting more confident in English and am now helping my friends with their English.

Regine Mbuyu - French speaking EFL student (DRC)

I met good teachers and had a good time. I want to come back again next time. Thank You.

HeeRa Kang - General English - beginner 2013 (South Korea)

I have thoroughly enjoyed the course, and I feel that it gave me a solid foundation to work with. I learned a great deal from merely watching Marian teach. I suspect that I will be emailing you from Korea for teaching tips! I loved the people I met on the course, and the cosy, warm place it was conducted in. At the same time, I felt stretched, engaged and challenged. Thank you for a great course!
