This TEFL course has taken me on a journey of self-awareness through learning. It's demanding, rigorous but also fun and engaging. One should definitely come with an open mind for this course as it gives you a different perspective and outlook to the TEFL teaching. Unconventional and productive methods of teaching. I would recommend the In-Class Program for all TEFL aspirants, as it prepares you for anticipatory problems one would face teaching learners of English Language. I'm glad, I participated in this program. Special mention - My trainer, Jhumur, who has been an inspiration and a motivational force for taking my TEFL journey ahead.
