YungJae Shin - General English student (South Korea)

When I started researching the TEFL options in Cape Town, I was instantly impressed by the Knowledge Workshop. Marian and Paul are professional, exuberant and have created a warm learning environment. The class dynamic enhanced the learning experience dramatically. The course attracted fantastic learners from a variety of backgrounds. Marian was able to create a level of trust within the classroom...

Pammi-Joy Oppenheimer - (EFL teacher)

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 ...

John Simon Cullen - TEFL graduate

I studied for 3 weeks at The Knowledge Workshop. The classes were 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 - General English

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 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)

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...

Tashneem Alexander - TEFL graduate

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 - TEFL graduate

I think that from the word 'Go' I enjoyed the challenge the course offered. It gave me an insight into how a teacher can teach English from the viewpoint of teaching the language as opposed to teaching about the language. I can honestly say that I was made to think about grammar in context as opposed to just teaching grammar. Marian encourages creativity and gives a lot of time to group participat...
