In this talk, we will explore ways of subtly integrating grammar tasks in all skills. Grammar is present everywhere and there is no language without it. However, teaching grammar communicatively […]

Students cheat. I cheat, you cheat, they cheat. It’s a fact. Students cheat, we cheated as students. Teachers take measures, threaten, build walls, get vigilant but students keep cheating because […]
Attending the CertTesol course at Qualify was a really enjoyable experience!
The course assignments are designed in such a way that are educational, helpful and insightful for even the most experienced teacher. Our tutors were approachable and always available to answer our questions.
I was looking forward to the days of the course to learn with friends in a fun way!
I feel lucky that Mary and Mark shared their expertise with us! They are two remarkable and inspiring professionals, but above all caring people!
I definitely recommend the course to any teacher who is interested in improving their skills whether experienced or not!
The CertTESOL course was by far the most rewarding teacher training experience I had ever received. It was a demanding course, but the guidance and support offered by the highly professional course tutors enabled me and the other course members to achieve our goals. We received consistent and frequent feedback on our performance, which meant that we were always aware of our progress and any necessary changes we needed to make. The tutors provided us with a whole range of useful ideas, tools and materials to teach effectively. Members of the course bonded closely and contributed to the supportive atmosphere. I can honestly say that Glossomatheia Lab was a perfect place to have undertaken this course.
CertTESOL is one of the best courses a teacher could do. It changes everything you know and if not then it adds More to it. It is hard but it’s worth doing it and every single step you make you gain something without any question. All the tutors in the course are excellent and always there for you at anytime and that was one of the reasons I chose to do this particular course.
I joined the Glossomatheia team at the age of 21. My initial thought was to take the Proficiency and have higher chances to get employed. What a wrong mindset!!!!! Mary and her team helped me in many other ways than just improving my English. This team helped me to broaden my horizons, expand my network and make life – time friendships. Today I am working for a multinational company in London and I know that Glossomatheia experience played a key role for my progress. YES, I PASSED THE PROFICIENCY!
Having started lessons in Glossomatheia since I was 8 years old, I must say that studying there has been a totally exciting experience! All teachers have high-level teaching skills and knowledge and they know exactly what a student needs to succeed. But the best point for me is that the teachers and the staff in general are incredibly friendly with no strict and old methods of teaching but with inspiring and motivating ones! Still now my good friend and best teacher ever, Mary Davou helps me in my important steps of my life after graduating from my university and she stands by my side as the perfect advisor. She is so helpful in everything that even 17 years after, I recommend Glossomatheia for 2 reasons: knowledge and fun! Try it, it’s really worth it! Totally a very nice experience!
Apart from my Proficiency Degrees in English and French, If I had to say a few words about what I learnt at Glossomatheia, these would be: Love for Knowledge, Life, Passion, Be inspirational, Respect and Love for people, work with the procedure of brainstorming, enjoying , having wonderful conversations with my teacher and definitely learn how to develop a strong will to be a better person!!
Thank you for all the amazing moments we shared together and for the unforgettable homemade chocolate and apple cakes that always accompanied our lessons ?
What makes Glossomatheia so unique in its way is the encouragement of critical thinking. You don’t just get to learn another language; that is only but a tool at your disposal. The essential part is that you understand its importance. The significance of communication. To share ideas and values through dialogue. That is what I learned in Glossomatheia during our long talks with classmates and teachers. I learned to communicate, to coexist.
