What Our Graduates Say


Tina Afshar Ghochani

I searched a lot to find a great TESOL program in Turkey and Queen TESOL Centre is one of the best. You can get your certificate in a short period of time which is a pro. They also offer weekend classes which is an advantage for those who are busy working or studying. The discipline and time management in this program is completely professional. The program is also well-structured and the teacher is highly knowledgeable and provide a friendly but at the same time strict atmosphere which gives you the certain qualities for being an excellent teacher. Although the assignments are time-consuming, they will make you learn a lot of practical knowledge regarding teaching English.I want to thank Queen TESOL Centre and my instructor for offering these great classes.


Samira SHIRI

As a university student, I decided that it is a good idea for me to find a part-time job as an English teacher or assistant teacher to get first-hand experience in teaching. Then, I enrolled in the TESOL program. It is one of the best courses I have ever attended. I learned a lot. It was so productive. The teacher is also sophisticated and knowledgeable. To be honest, I didn’t know anything about teaching techniques and methodologies, but with the help of this program and my teacher’s support, I grabbed a treasure trove of information that will pave the way for me in the future regarding teaching. I think without knowing how to teach you will cause the educational system harm.

Love you all and wish you the best.



It was a mistake!

I thought this course would be a piece of cake because I am an experienced teacher. I was wrong I thought it would be just a revision of information I already knew before. I was also wrong.It is one of the most challenging, most beneficial teaching courses I have taken in my life. It is full of modern approaches and practical teaching techniques that you can do in the actual classroom, not some fictional teaching theories. I highly recommend TESOL to my fellow teachers with or without experience. This course exceeded my expectations and I have never been happier to be that wrong.

P.S. empty your schedules; you will be writing a lot.


Monireh Mokhtari

The program, as I heard before, is very intensive, but I enjoyed every second of it since it was very informative and valuable. It helped me to improve my self-confidence and see the world of learning and teaching English from a new perspective. It not only gave me a professional attitude, but also was very functional for my personal life. I want to thank my wonderful teacher. She is great both academically and personally. I know next week I will be missing the classes, my teacher, and my classmates.



Dear Queens of England,

I’d like to thank you for giving me a second chance to take the entrance exam. I had no intention of enrolling in the TESOL program, but after two months, I feel like I am ‘the teacher’. Through this program, I discovered the value of my own experiences and achievements. Our trainer is one of the best things that has happened to me recently. Her knowledge level, idealistic point of view, and great courage she is instilling in us to complete each assignment stage was exceptional. Her assurance in the classroom, as well as her ideological stance, will remain my constant targets. This is a completely new path, and with my teacher’s confidence, I’m ready to walk it and combine my life experience to provide the best I can.



Defne Süheyla KARAN

TESOL was a program I always wanted to involve in, seeing my sisters get the education and then seeing them become teachers, it was a dream of mine. Now I’m here writing a testimonial about the program. I had such a great experience, it’s crazy how you can learn so much information in such a short period of time. When I become a teacher, I can’t wait to use all the skills and methods I have learned in this program. I would also like to thank my trainer, who guided us during our experience. She was such a wonderful teacher, all our classes were so active, fun, interesting and enjoyable. Thank you.



I wasn’t quite sure what I expected before I started this program but now, I can say I am glad I chose to take it. Our trainer was the best, she really was kind and attentive, and it has been such a nice journey. I not only learned a lot about teaching, but also about the experiences of her and my classmates. I want to choose teaching as a profession now, but even if I don’t, I am sure the experiences will be applicable to other fields as well. Thanks everyone who worked for this course, especially our trainer. Everyone takes their job very seriously. Overall, it was a great experience.


Denise Lindqvist

This education was the most intensive, but at the same time the most valuable and professional program I have ever experienced. To be honest, I never thought that I would learn this much within 2 months, but I can say that a whole new world opened-up for me regarding teaching. I feel so lucky and proud that I have achieved this, but it wouldn´t be possible without a professional team. With that said, I would like to send my biggest thanks to the management who have created probably one of few education programs that is so professional and has a super high quality. Also, an even bigger thanks to our amazing teacher, who has coached us and taught us so much. It hasn´t been easy, has been very hard, but it was so worth it because I feel comfortable and inspired in my teacher role, finally. I think this education should be heard of more, in this way other teachers can take advantage of your valuable knowledge. There is only 1 and only educational center for TESOL in Turkey and it is Queen TESOL Centre. I don´t think most people are aware of this. Thank you for everything, it was a privilege being educated by you.



Today is the last day of my TESOL classes, which means I have completed it and here is the outcome of this course. Being a current teacher, to be honest, I thought I had some ideas about what makes you a good teacher but this program showed me there are a lot to learn and a long way to go. I have learned how to plan better lessons and activities. I have tried them in my lessons. Surely we had hard times about planning or catching up with the ideal lesson plans but our instructor was and still is there to help at every step. There are no words to describe how happy and satisfied I am by taking this course. Many thanks on behalf of myself for helping me to become a better teacher and on behalf of my students for making my lessons more interesting, interactive and even fun!



Queen TESOL program is not only an academic improvement to make but it is also a must-have personal achievement for one’s personal life. The program helped me discover who I am, what my limits are and how to further push them. The endlessly optimistic and helpful approach of our teacher helped me love the idea of being a tutor even more than I did before, and helped me be more self-confident and enthusiastic about myself. TESOL made me think differently, sharp and clever. Thanks to this program, I have started seeing how an educational and academic approach would help in many other aspects of social life. I am glad and happy I have applied to this program and I am very lucky to have my instructor as my guide on this road.



Being a current teacher myself, to say that attending this course has made me a better teacher would be a clear understatement. It has certainly given me a modern and comprehensive set of tools to plan, prepare and carry out my lessons most effectively. Our trainer taught us not just the techniques but passion, patience and persistence to get the best out of each lesson, be it Grammar, Reading, Listening, Speaking or any other skill that would improve my students’ abilities to master English. Thank you!


Nagehan KELEŞ

I have just completed my TESOL Course and I must admit that this course was transformative in many ways. As we progressed through the course content, I realized that i have improved my knowledge not only on modern methodologies of teaching but also on my abilities of content creating, language production, lesson planning and evaluating. This course was very intensive and it required one’s deep concentration and focus but it was all worth it as it had a great impact on my way of seeing language learning as a whole. I am very greatful for what i have gained through the course and big thanks to my wonderful instructor, her broad knowledge and splendid mentoring skills helped us get better and better each lesson. Overall I feel really content and fullfilled, thank you Tesol Turkey!



I do not think words can describe how I feel about this class. No words can describe how delighted I am to be in this class. I appreciate my teacher’s efforts. Rarely do we see such a teacher, who teaches with warmth and sincerity, and arouses enthusiasm in the hearts of the volunteers. She will definitely be my role model in teaching. Given that I had no educational experience before this class and everything in my mind was misleading and confusing, now I know exactly what the right way is. All the principles and lessons were patiently considered and addressed. They were very clear and practical and immortal in the mind, and I will definitely use all the items taught in this course in my classes with my students because they are all useful and effective, and will certainly have a positive impact on their learning process.It was a valuable experience and we had some valuable moments. I can not describe how high standard the process of this class was. I am very proud that I got acquainted with this material and this course, and especially this teacher, and benefited from this class.This program will definitely have a big impact on self-confidence and I highly recommend it to my other friends who are going to teach.



To be honest, before starting this TESOL Program, I had no idea how challenging it was going to be, but at the same time, I must admit that it was extremely rewarding and beneficial. I haven’t had any experience in teaching English at all.However, during these TESOL classes, I’ve learned a lot about teaching English. I discovered various new knowledge as well as obtaining essential skills in teaching, which, I believe, will help me in the future. It was really interesting and highly beneficial to follow every class and create lesson plans for each area, such as grammar, reading, speaking, and listening. I, personally, have discovered a lot of fun and interesting techniques and methods of teaching language and language skills.I would like to extend my cordial gratitude and sincere appreciation to my instructor, who was always there to assist and support us, and who worked hard to lead us through this TESOL path. I also feel lucky to have such supportive and understanding groupmates and would like to thank them for sharing these hours with me and making them an unforgettable experience. Finally, I owe a gratitude to Queen TESOL for providing such a professional and effective course, and for their kind assistance in the solution of any issues, whenever required.


Nilsu ABAY

I’ve just completed How to Teach IELTS & TOEFL Short Course and would like to thank my trainer and Queen TESOL for this very informative, engaging and fun course. Although I have been teaching English for almost seven years now, thanks to this course, I’ve realized that helping students prepare for tests requires a whole other level of expertise. Throughout the course, I’ve learned a lot about TOEFL and IELTS examinations and feel much more confident about both taking these exams and teaching for them. I must say that I appreciate the way the course was structured and taught. It included a number of interactive activities and hands-on experience, which helped me to put myself in test takers’ shoes and get in-depth information about these tests. I’m also grateful for the positive and friendly atmosphere and would like to thank my trainer one more time for her efforts and hard work throughout the entire process.

Hope to meet again in another course!


Soumaya Aloui

I am really satisfied with the content of the TESOL program. It was really enriching and related to some specific useful competencies. TESOL program was more than I thought; on the one hand, it will help me to grow professionally, on the other hand, to improve my leadership skills as well as it taught me how to create an interactive classroom experience. I have learnt many things that can help me in my teaching career. Now I can say, I have officially become a teacher, who can teach language skills and prepare a lesson plan in a perfect way. My special thanks to my trainer; she is really a good tutor. She was patient and dedicated all the time. It has been a great experience for me. With love.


Saeedeh Pashaee

Even though I am a teacher and I have been Teaching English for a couple of years ,TESOL program helped me to be aware of my weak points and taught me to work harder on them. The program was a tough process but despite all ,I had a great time and I enjoyed each and every moment of teaching and learning. This program has changed my thoughts on how to teach and what to teach. I believe that the quality of my classes will be better, therefore my students and I will see the difference. Although I had a feeling of prejudice toward the course , all faded away. I would like to thank all ,especially our teacher for their contributions and all the effort.



Taking this course was such a great decision. It was exactly what I needed to give me a clear idea of what my students will need to do and, therefore, what they need to learn. By the end, I felt ready to lead a class on the subject. A huge thank you to my incredibly knowledgeable teacher, and to the entire organization for an incredible useful class and a wonderful experience. I am extremely grateful!

Dear Queen TESOL!!!

First of all, I am very thankful for this opportunity and possibility to pass the TESOL program with you.I would like to thank the staff of Queen TESOL Centre for their attention and professionalism.I would also like to express my thanks to our trainer. She is the purest example of a great teacher.The program itself is something that I would certainly advise all the teachers who are teaching English both as a foreign or a second language. The program is full of necessary information and knowledge that each teacher should learn, as well as the techniques that each teacher should apply while teaching English. The knowledge that I have received during the course simplifies and enriches my teaching and lessons. Thanks to the program, I have received great feedback from my students, and I see the results. Thank you!


Şahin KAYA

Though being a bilingual person and English teacher for years, I’ve learnt a lot out of this course. With our instructor’s vast knowledge of both teacher training and exam teaching, we discovered new dimensions to our teaching skills. The institution I’m working for assigned me an IELTS student during our course. Although I haven’t taken or taught IELTS before, I had amazing results with my student thanks to this course. He was so happy with my teaching that he suggested my IELTS course to his friends, and I have more students now.
