Paul and Marian, thank you both for everything. This adventure that I am embarking on would not be possible if you had not been there to guide me. I wish you all the best in the future and promise that I won't be a stranger.

Seiphemo Monnapula - TEFL graduate, November 2008 (EFL teacher - South Korea)

Once again, I just want to say how glad I am that I did the course. You are an incredible teacher that made the course, which could have been a tiring, boring schlep, an enjoyable experience!

Grant Arendse - TEFL graduate, November 2008 (EFL teacher - South Korea)

Dear Marian and Paul, I miss our tea breaks where we endlessly discussed travelling options and teaching dos and don’ts with fellow “TEFLers”. I miss those delicious biscuits...? The best part was getting to teach at Ikamvalethu. This course and the week spent teaching at Ikamvalethu instilled a confidence in me that has grown in South Korea. Thank you for sparking the desire to learn more, ...

The TEFL course which Marian facilitates at The Knowledge Workshop prepared me very well for my teaching experience in West Africa. I wanted to teach in Africa and having done some work experience with TKW at a secondary school in Langa, Cape Town, I can honestly say I was very well prepared to teach here in Africa. The TEFL course is an intense, but extremely enjoyable learning experience as Ma...

Barbara Osterloh - (EFL teacher, Island of Principe, West Africa)

I am 49 years old and have had many experiences over the years in learning situations, in my professional capacity and as a student at university and school. I can say without reservation that you are among the foremost teachers that I have had the privilege to be taught by and that your energy and zeal kept me enthralled and an active and keen participant in the process. I learnt more than I thou...

Immediately after first making contact with Marian and Paul at The Knowledge Workshop, I knew I had made the right choice. Marian is an inspiring, charismatic figure with a wealth of knowledge with which I am yet to find fault. Her dedication and passion are infectious and it is impossible not to get caught up in her stimulating classes. As an organiser Paul is busy, but on top of things and alway...

Luke Boshoff - (EFL teacher Denmark)

I studied for 3 weeks at The Knowledge Workshop. The classes were really small which meant I could practice my English very well. I learned a lot of new words and gained a better understanding of the grammar. Actually, it is the best English school I have ever been to!

Linda Blum - EFL student

I loved my experience with The Knowledge Workshop and would definitely recommend TKW to anyone wanting to do a TEFL course. The course was structured, very informative and taught us exactly what we need to teach English abroad. Marian, your first-hand experience with teaching English in a foreign language and the energy you brought to the course, definitely made it stand out as a memorable and fun...

Katie Bradley - EFL student

My experience at The Knowledge Workshop has been a truly life changing one. I did the TEFL course in July 2011 and it opened my mind up to the possibilities of not only teaching English as a profession but to travel and earn some money before I decide what I'd like to do with my degree. I made new friends and as a naturally shy person, the activities encouraged me to be confident and conduct a cla...
