This course helped to systematise my knowledge of English grammar and phonology as well as gave me some important tips on the teaching methods and techniques. The most valuable tip was how to maintain the balance between student talking time and teacher talking time. Might sound easy, but it's not!


The tutors support was excellent, both Jane and Lenka put a lot of effort and created the most welcoming atmosphere with very interesting input sessions, provided detailed guidance and support with the lesson planning, demonstrated delivery of high-quality lessons & gave very personalised feedback.

My experience was really good and it really helps save time because it’s based online. Face-to-face parts were really comfortable because the professor was friendly. OI Digital Institute admissions team respond to emails really fast and they really helped me clear up any queries.
