Yesterday I got the marks. I can say that I got an achievement. I'm very happy and proud of that I studied English in SA. I'll keep going up! I really thank The Knowledge Workshop for everything that you've done. Now I'm looking for a job which my English or Spanish can be used. Take care yourself & see you again. Regards, Shouki Shiozawa.

Shouki-Shiozawa - General English / TOEIC student (Japan)

My experience at The Knowledge Workshop has been a truly life changing one.

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

The people are amazing and every...

Joana Behnke - General English student (Brazil)

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...

Christopher Ekerold - TEFL graduate (Destination - South Korea)

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.
