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!

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...

It takes a lot of skill to turn a shy, quiet and placid individual into a fully functioning teaching machine capable of standing confidently in front of 51 students on a daily basis. That said, Marian and Paul, you guys managed to do it and you did it with style. In all my years of school and studying, I have never felt a connection and comfort level such as the atmosphere you set at your school. ...

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!

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, March 2009 (Destination - 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...

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)

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)

To be honest, I was nervous before my first class at The Knowledge Workshop. Coming from an accounting career, I was a bit hesitant towards this whole teaching thing. But from the start, Marian was amazing and made us feel at home. She brings so much experience, knowledge and fun to the class. The course was thorough, easy to follow, and very hands-on. It was an incredible experience, and I feel ...
