Training at CES has drastically improved my command of the English language. Throughout the duration of the course I have developed my skills in all areas of grammar and writing. With guidance from experienced tutors I have experimented with several different teaching styles and believe I have the knowledge to apply the correctly depending on the situation. Furthermore, training at CES has given me the confidence to deliver lessons in a professional manner whilst still creating a dynamic and fun environment for students to learn in.
