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! :)

Excellent Innovative

The TEFL training was innovative which gave us the confidence which enhanced our teaching skills which is enjoyed by learners, as well. Excellent place for teachers to enhance their capabilities. All the lessons we did had some objectives which were cleared, done and fulfilled and explained by the end of the day. a very intensive and useful program for all the teachers, and of all the level. Teachers were pushed to feel their own confidence level, where all the skills are clubbed together.

What would you improve about this program?
To address and share all the fellow members or alumni names with all the members.

ACT TESOL/TEFL Course

Great course, great teacher. Unfortunately the job placement was atrocious. Billabong high International school in Pattambi, Kerala, India is undeveloped, not properly established. My accommodation was a joke, no toilet, no bathroom, no kitchen, no water, no phone or internet coverage. I can't believe someone would allow international teacher's to live and work in atrocious conditions. Please international teacher's just research the course, the country and their placements. My teacher and class mates were awesome and made friends for life, Unfortunately I won't be seeing them. Also be careful, as they want you to obtain a tourist visa to complete course, it's actually against the law to study or work in a foreign country on a tourist visa, this is why I am asking international teacher's to really research your course. Kochi is a wonderful area of Kerala, Keralan people are incredibly awesome and very helpful and friendly people.

What would you improve about this program?
Change attitude towards international teachers. I have taught English in many countries, accommodation and conditions were very different from India. Maybe more assistance from your employer, remember you must do and pay for everything to get employment in India

I would definitely recommend ACT TEFL/TESOL

ACT TEFL/TESOL has been a great course and a fantastic journey. It has given me the knowledge and experience that I need to apply in a classroom and develop myself further as a language teacher. I have learnt about the importance of lesson planning and the different methodologies and strategies of TEFL. The teaching practices gave me real insight into the world of a language teacher and helped me to put myself in the shoes of the language learner. I look forward to developing myself in the future and using everything that I take away from this course to grow as a language teacher. The support we got from our trainer was meticulous and no aspect was left untouched or uncovered in detail. Feedback was given throughout which helped support me along the journey.

Excellent

I am a postgraduate in English and have done BEd from Pune University. I have been teaching English for last 10 years at a polytechnic. I want to teach English abroad, so that I searcher over internet and came to know that to teach abroad we need to do some sort of certification like TEFL/TESOL. So I decided to do that then I searched over internet and came across Asian college of Teachers. I went through all the reviews and found it reliable than others so I joined ACT to do TEFL at Pune. My experience in TEFL classroom at ACT was excellent throughout the course. Trainer Aditi Ghosh was very energetic and enthusiastic throughout each and every day. My peers were very cooperative to me. I enjoyed this TEFL 120 hrs. in class programme.

What was your funniest moment?
While learning in TEFL classroom whenever we would perform a warmer activity, those all moments were funny for me.

Amazing experience

It was a great experience and a very wise decision.
Getting to know about different teaching methods and approaches were the guiding light to our trail.
The daily session are filled with learning different approaches with fun and ease.
The methods taught here enable and empower you to teach learners of diverse culture, level, age and understanding.
The main motto is to be you and unlock your own abilities.
Teaching is a board concept with just a simple step i.e your delivery and the way you deliver your concepts and understanding to your learners.
This is a perfect course to begin your career incase you are a fresher to the teaching field.
All the staff and leaders of ACT and very helpful and guiding.
You would not regret this decision ever.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
If you love kids and would like to become a kid to teach and guide them then this course is for you.
If you like kids but you are nervous about singing and dancing, no worries, this course will make you overcome that fear and will teach you all the methods and approaches which are required to teach and ESL learner.
