Rachael was such a great course leader, and I feel more motivated than ever to continue with my TEFL training!
The course days may seem long, but they're divided into subjects in such a way that I never felt like the days dragged on - if anything, they were over so quickly!
You go over a little of what's covered in the online courses, but the majority of the weekend course is new information, and I would say it's essential to getting a feel for what actually teaching a class will be like.
Mostly participatory - there's little note taking involved. There are a couple of group presentations, but they're very low stakes and a great way to try out lesson planning and delivering.
So glad I took part, and I'd recommend it to anyone who's thinking of or already doing TEFL.
