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)

When I first arrived in Cape Town, I felt intimidated when having conversations in English. After spending 3 months studying general English at The Knowledge Workshop, I started to feel more confident and could communicate more easily than before. I went on to pass the TOEFL exam and am now studying at UCT. I really enjoyed every moment I spent at TKW, especially the interesting break time convers...

Willy Yav - French speaking EFL student, 2010 (Democratic Republic of Congo)

My experience at The Knowledge Workshop was unexpected. I went with the intention of acquiring the skills that would enable me to fund an international expedition. Teaching English...? I can do that. I speak it all the time! Surprisingly, after a quick-paced 120 hours, I figured out, in fact, that I love teaching English. I know this because:I actually enjoyed completing my homework assignmentsDur...

Stephanie Anastasopoulos - (Travelling EFL Teacher)

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 - (Travelling EFL Teacher)

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...

Joana Behnke - Italian and Portuguese speaking EFL student, 2010 (Brazil)

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 - Italian and Portuguese speaking EFL student, 2010 (Brazil)

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

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 ...
