I've been teaching at a bilingual preschool for some years and although I have classroom experience, this course changed my perspective in so many ways.

When I decided to enroll in the TKT Young Learners Certificate, I thought I would only improve my English and some teaching skills, but the course took me far beyond that. I learned so many aspects about teaching that I've never considered before— I learned to prepare complete lesson plans, materials, how to look for resources and what kind of resources to use for each situation. I'll take this experience not only into my professional career but also into my life!
