The Oxford Seminars course was recommended to me by my university professor. The course was well organized and enthusiastically and professionally
instructed. The course materials, especially the manual, are very useful references. I also enjoyed how small the class size was."
- N.L., Winston-Salem, NC
Oxford Seminars was a scary step for me to go froward with. I was not sure if teaching abroad was something I truly could do. After going through with the course
and getting so much help from the staff it has been by far a smooth process. It's not has scary and intimidating as I though it would be. The in-class portion really helped me get many of my answers answered of how to teach children with no
English recollection. Also meeting people with the same dreams and staying connected with these people when going to a different country. It has been a great experience so far.

The in class portion was great. I'm more of a visual learner, therefore having a teacher helping with direct questions was great. I also enjoyed the interaction
among peers to help learn.

The small class size lent itself to an excellent environment for lots of practice and conversations. Teaching time and lesson planning time are crucial.

My father, mother, and sister have all devoted their careers to teaching in the public schools of North Carolina. But your instructor totally expanded
all of my preconceptions of 'teaching' and 'learning.' Language acquisition is the process for learning that I will employ with future students. I am excited about the challenge."
