Yvan Yenda - German speaking EFL student, 2007/2008 (Switzerland)

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)

Dear Marian and Paul, I just wanted to say hello from Brazil! I’m good - but kind of missing Cape Town! I really had the best time of my life. I enjoyed South Africa so much. It’s not something that you can describe, it’s just something that you feel. In Brazilian we say “saudade”, it's when you miss something in a such strong way. Everything was perfect. The people are amazing and every...

YungJae Shin - General English student 2013 (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 - General English student 2013 (South Korea)

My time at The Knowledge Workshop was a wonderful and memorable experience because of the professional and dedicated staff, the pragmatism of the teaching methods and the supportive environment in which the learning takes place.... not to mention the social gatherings!

Blaise Mutombo - French speaking EFL student, 2007/2008 (Democratic Republic of Congo)

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 initially came to the TKW because I had to complete a TEFL course as a requirement for South Korea. I had heard of other people doing similar courses but was drawn to the TKW because of the practical component. I can honestly say that it was the best 100 hours! I learnt so much about the English Language, about teaching, the world around us…I researched many TEFL institutions and the TKW was b...
