Testimonials

I started Graduate Diploma of TESOL as a qualified English educator with fourteen years of teaching experience. The course equipped me with the knowledge of new teaching methodologies, such as genre pedagogy and text-based approach, both of which apply Halliday’s Systemic Functional Grammar. The programme has significantly transformed my attitude towards teaching a language from a traditional, textbook-based approach into working with authentic, multimodal texts whose lexico- grammatical features are set in context. Apart from extensive theoretical study, I had an opportunity to develop advanced research skills and undertake a professional experience placement comprising both in- classroom teacher observations as well as delivering my own lessons at an Australian college. I highly recommend Graduate Diploma of TESOL at AIBT not only to prospective English teachers but also to the experienced ones who would like to move up to the next level of their career.
As an English teacher I wanted to further develop my skills as I began working predominately with students learning English as a second language. I wanted to ensure that I was able to wholly support them in understanding all the different features of English they would need in the classroom and in their daily lives. The Graduate Diploma of TESOL, which applies Halliday’s Systemic Functional Linguistics, has provided me with a wealth of knowledge in my approach to teaching both English as an Additional Language and English Literature. It has given me greater awareness and understanding of the grammar, vocabulary and discourse structure of texts and to design language focused curriculum that further support students in their literacy development. This course has also allowed me to better support my colleagues who teach English language learners in their classroom and to give them the tools to design curriculum that develops their knowledge and literacy. I highly recommend the Graduate Diploma in TESOL at the Adelaide Research Institute to both prospective and experienced teachers wanting to further develop their literacy teaching skills.
