"I took a TESL course in Barrie, Ontario with Oxford Seminars which was a facsinating learning experience. The course was 60 hours in class and 40 hours online, the classroom part was on three weekends from 9 am to 6pm. We had a small group of 6 people and I'd highly recommend this TESL course to anything thinking about getting certified." - Shaunie, Canada
