I am moving from ‘old job’ to ‘new job’

I am moving from ‘old job’ to ‘new job’. The ‘new job’ is something new to me. The new job is teaching. It is difficult to enter a new job without preparation. LTTC is in between the ‘old job’ and the ‘new job’. LTTC prepares me for the ‘new job’. I am grateful to LTTC for preparing me for the new job.

Attending the TESOL course has helped me to enhance my competency as a teacher…

Attending the TESOL course has helped me to enhance my competency as a teacher especially in the area of the teaching of ESL. I find Module 4 which focuses on phonetic, phonological, lexical and syntactic features of contemporary English especially beneficial as it has deepened my knowledge of the English language. By interacting with my course mates from different nationalities, it has also broadened my perspective of life in general. Thank you once again for all your guidance.
