"I feel the TEYL Certificate will help my career as there were many things I studied that relate to my classroom experiences. Both the theories of linguistics and practical skills studied are important aspects of the program that were complementary and balanced. I would recommend this program to anyone teaching young learners English or preparing to teach in any part of the world.” – Kwansei Gakuin University Elementary School (Japan) English Staff Ryan Fujii
