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, ...

Emma-Jean Clark - (EFL teacher, South Korea)

Being older it was a challenge to go 'back to school' to do the TEFL training. I was delighted to find TKW! The environment is welcoming, relaxed and supportive. Marian's facilitation is superb. We worked intensely, but always learned in a fun-filled atmosphere. I am amazed at how quickly and well prepared we were for our practical teaching experience. As I leave to work with Teaching English in I...

Tessa Viotti - (EFL teacher, South Korea)

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

I had a great time, thank you!!! I think if you want to learn English you should come to The Knowledge Workshop. I am happy I came here and had a happy experience

YungJae Shin - General English student 2013 (South Korea)

What a wicked experience!!! I think I gained more knowledge from this experience in three weeks, than I did in a year at varsity. It was just jam packed with fun, and learning, and motivation, and special people. I'm going to miss everyone so much!! Tear-tear-sniff-sniff. Marian, you are truly an inspiration!

Zarah Rahbeeni - TEFL graduate, March 2009 (Destination - South Korea)

A combination of a wonderful learning environment, helpful course material, an inspiring teacher and a mix of brilliant, dynamic fellow TEFL students encompasses only a few aspects that would contribute to my recommendation of this course at The Knowledge Workshop. To anyone interested, you are guaranteed to have an enriching experience! Not only did this course open my eyes to the complexity and ...

Zoe McClarty - (EFL teacher, Vienna)

I was fortunate enough to attend the TEFL/TESOL course offered by The Knowledge Workshop. As a 24 year old with absolutely no teaching experience, I was not sure what I was getting myself into. Let me tell you, it was one of the best decisions I have made! Marian is a fantastic teacher and she channeled her energy, enthusiasm and passion into the course, to make it one of the most informative and ...
