General » TESOL Course with Kathy Ezard
Kathy was so helpful right from the start. She got me registered in time and had my books waiting for me when I got there. The only reason I was able to take the course is because Kathy was so quick to respond to my e-mails.

Upon arriving in her class, I was skeptical of her relaxed teaching style. However it didn't take long for everyone in the class (including me) to completely open up. It was a relaxed and fun experience that brought everyone in the class closer together.

My biggest take away from having Kathy as my TESOL teacher was the way that she prepared us for the culture shock. She had numerous stories ready, which she would pull out to demonstrate that while teaching abroad can be fun, it can also be challenging in ways that you would have never imagined. Her method of 'bulletproofing' us was both hilarious and humbling, and really added to the course.

I would not have enjoyed this course nearly as much as I did were it not for having Kathy as my teacher.

At first, I was not planning to take the TESOL course but Kathy really motivates me to register. I was really impressed the way she handle the course. The class was very interesting and I learn a lot in such limited period of time. She is a very dynamic teacher and you really feel the energy from the beginning to the end. I just complete my Business English Teaching specialization examination and I am now ready to take this at the next level. I really recommend everyone to take the TESOL course with Kathy Ezard, you won’t be disappointed. I am confident that she will be there to assist in helping me find the appropriate opportunity with the best conditions.

If you ever hesitate to take the TESOL course with Kathy Ezard, I can reassure you that you won’t be disappointed. I had the chance to take it a year ago and couldn’t be happier about this decision. I have to say the classes went so fast because it was so interesting. Her class is not the typical one; she makes everyone comfortable and really wants every student to feel secure in this decision of leaving home and going abroad for a while. She is an awesome teacher who delivers the course material but also shares her own experience and gives you insight about the reality of being an English teacher abroad. Furthermore, you can always count on her for any kind of support once you start the school application process, because she is always there for her students. She helped me with finding an appropriate school with the best conditions possible and took the time to make sure my contract was legal. I will soon be leaving for China and I know that I can always count on her for any advice once I will be there.

General » Power Language Training in Hangzhou, China. How is teaching at this school?
Hey all.

I recently earned my foundation course certificate and have been receiving a few job offers from Chinese recruiters. The offer that seems the most appealing to me is from the school 'Power Language Training', which is located in Hangzhou, China.

Does anyone here have first hand experience working at this school? If so, what was it like working for them?


General » TESOL Certificate class with Kathy Ezard
Hi everyone,
For those of you who are searching the board because they want to take the course with Kathy, or is wondering if Kathy is a good teacher, well I'm here for you.

I was so reluctant to do this course at all, and even more so when I got a personal phone call from Kathy herself. But let me tell you, I am very happy I decided to do the course. This all sounds very cheesy, but in short, it was the best decision I have made in a long time.

Her teaching is unorthodox, but effective. She will make you think, feel, and act like a teacher by the end of the course. She is incredibly helpful and so kind, that it makes going to her course more worth it. With her, you're getting more than just certification because she will follow you through to your first job abroad.

Good luck :)
