“Each course you have a certain amount of time but I didn’t feel under pressure at all. You don’t need to kill yourself to get through some of the content which was good and I feel like I learned a lot. The qualifications will allow you to find work in many schools worldwide and if you haven’t taught before it is a small investment to find out if teaching English abroad is something you actually want to do. ”
