Everything I need to know, I was able to learn and apply in this course. I am highly impressed with the teaching techniques of Dr.Dixon and Dr.Cinco! This course was the most challenging so far and it pushed me to my limit. I am truly inspired to also make a difference to student's lives the same way that you have made a valuabale impact in mine. I hope to meet you someday to thank you!

I highly recommend this course to anyone who is just starting their teaching career or those who want to enhance and organize their knowledge about teaching English. I think this course is also suitable for teachers of other languages. However, it's important to note that the course is conducted in English, so a good command of the language is necessary to fully benefit from it.

This is one of the best courses or specializations I have studied on coursera so far. I love the caricature of the teacher, and the organization of the course. The course is comprehensive and easy to remember what you've learned. As a teacher, I implement and incorporate every new skill and technique I learnt in each module. I will be subscribing to part 2 in a week or two.

Thanks a lot, Coursera and ASU. My biggest takeaway from this course would be gaining confidence. The course material and the lectures have boosted my concepts and understanding by many folds. I thoroughly enjoyed the assignment, presentation, and peer assessments. Now, I know my weak areas and want to improve in those. Looking forward to doing part2 course.

That a course! Every task is clear and even accustomed, but it has a twist - and this twist surprise me every time. That was fun!

Also the main thing here - to get your reviews, so, you review others a lot looking for a possibility to ask them to review your work. To the end of the course you're already remember your course-mates.

I liked this course a lot!

I really foster my knowledge. I applied the things I learnt in three courses. I like the way of teaching us in the modules. All steps are well organised to understand and follow. I wish I had chance to have the teachers’ experience in this course , Dr Shane Dixon and Jessica Cinco. Thank you for their effort and the way of teaching the courses.

A great way to learn and apply the knowledge learned for both the novices and experienced teachers. I enjoyed doing the task and reviewing peers' works; I learned a lot from reviewing my peers. Though I do not actually plan lessons in my current employment, doing the tasks helped me to better plan my lessons and facilitate classes.

I loved every course in this specialization so far. It does require a lot of hard work but nothing is too hard if you are passionate to learn and if you work smart. This capstone and the last 3 courses have opened my mind, entertained me, guided me, and challenged me a lot. Thank you, ASU for providing this opportunity!

This course is a great refresher to what I have learned with Teach English Now!

It also helped me with organizing my teacher portfolio and becoming more comfortable with instructing future students online.

Highly recommend this Capstone and looking forward to beginning the final Capstone Project soon!

This course is more difficult and time demanding than the previous ones, but it's certainly worth the effort, because it gives you a chance to practice what you've learnt. I found peer review sections especially helpful, as it's exetremely important for me to recieve feedback from my other teachers

It has been a wonderful experience to work with you over the last few weeks!. I loved how you taught us theoretically and practically in the field of teaching English. I think it's too important for people who want to teach English to apply for all the courses in the TESOL certificate program.

This course was exactly what I was looking for, a smart blend between theories and practice. It´s providing me a new set of teaching tools and projects designed to master my skills. Also, allows you to take a look to other points of view and experience from teachers from different places.

It has been a massive experience being part of this course. I have been given the opportunity to reflect the theoretical background in ELT that I have learned and lectured by the lectures given in the previous parts of this course. Thanks for your effort. I am enormously appreciated.

I learned to overcome my affective filter to do the video. I got to practice all sections of the lesson plan as a teacher. The class observation, reflection and peer markings were valuable learnings. Thank you and appreciate all the instructors and the course support team.

Hello! I really enjoyed this course! I thank you! It can be said that I have learned a lot of great and valuable information from this course. Now it is my dream to complete all 8 courses and get my TESOL certificate. 50% of my dream is behind. Thank you very much!

A very positive, meaningful and helpful experience. Prior to this course, I was concerned if I would have the ability to write one week lesson plans. Not anymore! I have learned so much and really appreciated the perspectives provided throughout the field experiences.
