My TESOL experience

  • Nigeria -
  • 8/10
  • Recommends
  • Completed the course in August 2019

I had a good learning experience at IOA, from the different teaching methods and breaking topics in sub topics, and explaining pedagogy to an understandable point. But what I didn't like is explanation for my failed test. I expected at all times to be showed the correct answer after I have failed a question so as not to fail such question again.

But outside that it was a great experience and I enjoyed it to the point I have started telling my friends to sign up for courses there too, as I'm warming up for another course.
