The best learning experience of my life

So far THE BEST LEARNING EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE♡ I still can't believe I completed the course ;)
I was very skeptical about taking up the course, I'm sure everyone of us are doubtful but let me tell you my incredible journey of past 2 months.
I'm from a different career stream which is " civil engineering". I graduated in "August 2020", initially I had to give my final exams of engineering in the month of April but thanks to covid that never happened ;( and due to the pandemic I didn’t really had the chance to attend any of the placement sessions in my engineering college and I was really anxious about my career thoughts and then came TEFL course into my life through a friend of mine and I followed what my heart wanted... I love traveling and its a dream that i want to cherish for lifetime, teaching can be done vividly throughout the world with the TEFL certification and choosing ACT was the perfect decision for me to fulfill my dreams.
I still remember the first day of my webinar course i was very nervous but the trainers were welcoming which made me feel comfortable. The insights of learning provided through the sessions were amazing and very helpful for a beginner like me in teaching field. The techniques of teaching that were taught really amused me and will be helpful further in my teaching carrer. I had a very knowledge-based learning experience all thanks to my wonderful trainers for such good insights. It was a different perspective of learning which was fun with my enthusiastic peers and I gained a lot of important pointers through my experienced facilitators and peers as well. I'm grateful 🙏 for each one of them for expressing their point of views in every session.
Anyone who's reading this review, considering to take up the course PLEASE DO. It'll change your the way of your thinking towards teaching (in a good way though :p). I never knew teaching would be this great and amazing. I'm happy that I have this career option now through which I can teach and travel

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
The techniques being taught really amused me and its perfect for the 21st learning experience and I had really enjoyed each and every moment of learning in this course duration

Excellent platform for TEFL programme

Innovative methods and ideas help to grow as a trainee. Learnt so many things and eager to apply those unique ideas in the teaching-learning procedure. Become familiar with the role of a teacher as a fecilitator. Uploading the micro- teaching demo video in the You Tube was a novel experience. Last but not least the innovative lesson plan demonstration before students and trainers was quite challenging. The trainer's support and guidance helped me to aqire the skills so that I can bevome a successful trainer in near future.

What was your funniest moment?
Performing the rhyme Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round as a warmer was the funniest moment.

TEFL/TESOL In class program Chennai (25 Nov - 13 Dec'19)

Had a wonderful experience at Asian College of Teachers, Chennai. It was a 15 day in-class program. Was able to understand the communication skills, integrated skills and how to deliver these effectively to various levels and ages of learners. Wonderfully handled by the tutor Ashika.. Kudos to her to take the class in a very motivated way.. her warmers, activities, lesson execution, closure, drill exercises, support in our preparation, reviews, reflection, concern handling were really the need of the hour. She has really helped us understand the nuances to teaching a language successfully. Thanks to ACT.. Ashika - you are truly amazing!

What was your funniest moment?
I did a charade as a comic character Hulk. I also did a play enacting like a girl in the audience. These were really appreciated by my peers and the trainer for being so open minded.. To me I felt very happy doing these though it was so funny! :)

Alumni Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with verified alumni.

Why did you choose this program?

It's my dream to travel around the world. Basically I'm a commerce student (mcom). If I choose an accounting job, any other job I can't fullfill my dream. Teaching is my passion, so I decided to teach and travel around the world. I'm sure that this program is the best way to fullfill everyone's dream.

What did your program provider (or university) assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

ACT helps every students to improve their communication skills and also they provide advanced technology, methodology to their students. Our trainer Is also a talented person; she helps me so much to clear my doubts without hesitation. If I can do my own, I should help the students to achieve their dreams.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

My advice is to my friends who are going to do this course is that, if you have strong passion for teaching, you can succeed; otherwise, never do this course. This course is a big platform for those who dream to go abroad and teach. It is also a challenging program. Do what you make happy and follow your heart.

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

If you are studying in ACT, punctuality is a must. Wake up early and going to class on time is very important. Every day we are eagerly waiting to do new activities and pair works. There are lot of activities and group work given by our trainer that are very useful for improving our ability to teach and handling the students.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

I don't have any experience because I never go abroad. If I get a chance to go abroad, my biggest fear will be independence because I live in a joint family; I never visited any place without my parents. But I believe I can overcome this situation for making new friends and colleagues. Face situations with courage and confidence.

Do you have a favorite story abroad?

I don't have any favourite story to share, sorry for that. I think, don't go abroad with fears. Just enjoy your profession and travel around the world . Set your mind before going to abroad; face the challenges and accept their culture; obey the rules don't make it complicated. Respect elders. Thank you.

What is your favorite travel memory?

Although I have traveled to few countries in the world and immigrated too, however, till date my all time favorite travel memory is when I had visited Thailand in the year 2009. It was almost as if I was in love with that place instantly and secretly wished to work in Thailand. By God's grace, my dream came true through Asian College of Teachers. As TEFL trainer, my job demands traveling and training in different locations and I have been traveling to Bangkok on and off for the same. Exotic locales of Thailand, friendly and ever smiling people, amazing hospitality, unlimited variety of food and a paradise for the shopaholics, make my travels to Thailand an evergreen one, always.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

There are many factors that come into play in being a successful company. However, I believe that the biggest factor is innovation along with good marketing strategies. Although success, however we choose to define it, is a continuous work in progress. Most importantly, in a company where people work as 'WE' than 'I', it is creating more compelling and enriching future.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I have not only changed but also grown since working for Asian College of Teachers. Changed in terms of being more confident, efficient and most importantly in skill building. Definitely I see myself to have grown as an effective communicative trainer and people's manager, from what I used to be fours years back.

What unique qualities does your company possess?

The leadership team of every good company has a great ambition for the company. Asian college of Teachers (ACT) offers the same, meet customer needs, relentless attention to execution (not only the products but in customer service too) and offers flexibility to all its employee, which makes ACT a great place to work for.

Describe a time when you felt especially proud to be part of your current team.

There is not a time where I felt proud to be a part of an efficient team but quite a few moments where I have felt the same. To be able to recognize employee's talent and efficiency is culture and a ritual that is effectively practiced in ACT. Whenever my hard and smart work have been appreciated, it goes without saying that it has simply boosted my self confidence, helped further to speed up my efficiency and planted the seed to learn and grow more.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

The best story so far what I have heard is when a student claims how ACT has touched its life and has helped to transform. The best of the best part is, when a student expresses to be a part of ACT as an employee or to work as a partner.
