Thanks dear Dr. Dr. Shane Dixon, Dr. Justin Shewell and Jessica Cinco This is a very good, actually excellent, course and I would recommend it to anyone.

Thank you Dr. Shane Dixon and Jessica Cinco for this fantastic course and interesting presentation, I recommend and advise all ESL/ EFL teachers to join the course.

Dr. Shane Dixon is great!

Dr. Shane Dixon is the most impressive instructor I have ever seen.

I almost didn't have to write throughout the series of these courses, since Dr. Justin Shewell, Dr. Shane Dixon, and the beautiful Lady, Ms. Jessica Sinco, ensured the knowledge is delivered into the right memory slots in a very organized way.I do strongly recommend you to join this beautifully designed Specialization.

But since that moment I've used any opportunity to listen to Jessica Cinco and Dr. Shane Dixon.

lesson plans in 6 reviews

I recommend this class to anyone who needs to create lesson plans, regardless of TESOL or not.

This one has been the most useful for me so far, I am currently teaching Marketing and Business, but used the techniques and the structures as well as the sample lesson plans from this course.

good project This course really taught me the importance of designing great lesson plans for my future ESL students.

Excellent tips to develop great lesson plans!

I enjoyed reviewing other lesson plans mostly as it gave me an opportunity to see my own mistakes and how to correct them.

If you want to improve your Lesson Plans or you do not know how to make one this is the course for you.
