… it a significant moment in life
The journey at BEC has changed me in so many ways that I now consider it a significant moment in life!
I will always remember my first day in class! Prior to that, I had read great reviews on what the centre offers, heard about how amazing the trainers are and watched testimonial videos of students' learning journey at BEC! So I came to class with expectations soaring through the roof!
Kennedy is indeed an exceptional trainer! Even though lessons may start early and we as students sometimes need a good warm-up, Kennedy begins his lessons with enthusiasm and energy! This really helped the class loosen up, participate and learn more effectively! For every point he teaches, Kennedy reinforces it with a life story that keeps learners engaged throughout the 3 hours!
I remember looking forward to classes day after day! In fact, when the first weekends came, I had some "withdrawal symptoms" of not having a good dose of lessons! It was an amusing feeling because I am someone who had never been academically-inclined and had never looked forward to going to school!
Many more things can be said but more than the charisma, professionalism and abilities of the trainers, BEC is learners-oriented! Much of the lessons require students to step out of their comfort zone to deliver teaching segments, hone their public speaking skills, and increase in their skill sets as future ESL teachers! That was how I had improved and grown in my craft!
BEC has really set me up for success and I will always be grateful for my time there! I would recommend ANYONE to enrol in the course even if it's for the sole purpose of improving yourself as a person!

… equipped me with the skills to teach
I recently received my TESOL diploma from BEC. BEC provided a great learning experience and equipped me with the skills to teach. Alvina and Kennedy, our instructors were very knowledgeable and lessons were engaging. The materials, teaching techniques and activities were extremely useful. Yu Chin also provided a great deal of support and encouragement.

…a very conducive environment for learning
BEC provides a very conducive environment for learning. Kennedy (trainer) and Yuchin are friendly and approachable. They are available to assist you with anything. The course is great - the content has sufficient theoretical background but more importantly, there is an emphasis on practical.
I would recommend anyone to join this course even if you don't have the intention to teach as what you'll learn are transferable skills that are useful in the workforce. This course helps to build confidence especially when speaking in front of an audience, logical thinking and planning, as well as time management.
Overall, a happy student of BEC! 🙂

… the most wonderful decisions of my life
Coming to BEC for diploma in TESOL was one of the most wonderful decisions of my life. It is a lovely place with a good collection of books in their library and extremely supportive staff. Mr Kennedy and Ms Alvina are great teachers and were always there to help and motivate me in all aspects of my learning journey. Yu Chin is very sweet , patient and supportive. I made many friends and have really sweet memories to cherish. I was home bound for almost 6 years and had lost confidence in speaking to people, but now I have come to an end of my course and am a very confident person unlike before. I am and will always be thankful to BEC for all that I have gained.

…the lessons are engaging
This course has a well balanced curriculum as it teaches not only the theoretical aspects of the English language, there are many opportunities to try out lesson activities where we can hone our teaching skills while learning from our classmates! With two encouraging and experienced teachers (shout out to Kennedy and Alvina), the lessons are engaging, especially with many of us attending lessons after work. I'm also extremely thankful to Yu Chin for sharing useful tips and clarifying the doubts I had before and during the course!

BEC is a wonderful place! The course was really enjoyable and fun, I truly enjoyed my time there. I made lots of new friends and the staff was really helpful and would go out of the way to provide to me help in any way they can. I came into their TESOL course will no teaching background, I had some problems with public speaking too. But this course has helped me build my confidence with its warm and welcoming environment. It also further enhanced my interest in teaching as well! I resonated with what was taught in class and i am eager for the many things BEC has prepared me for. This is only a part of my journey but I am glad to have started it from here.
