Recently, while looking for the best option for my professional development, I found Quality Leadership University, the best option in master programs. It was a challenge to find the best, but I did. Success is now.
The TESOL master program offered by Quality Leadership University is terrific! Unlike any other programs that focus only on far-fetched theories, this program brings everything down to earth to the practical level! The professors are ingenious and knowledgeable, and the classmates are fun to play with. I really enjoy being here.
Graduating from the Master in Applied Linguistics at QLU has given me the opportunity to be successful as an English teacher and has opened many doors internationally. The professors from different countries that I had, the administrative staff that the university has and the professional quality of the organization are all proof that I made the right decision when I chose QLU for my graduate studies. Also, I had the chance to become part of the teaching staff of the English courses offered at QLU, where I applied all the knowledge and strategies learned throughout the masters. This gave me the confidence to go beyond my expectations. Thank you, QLU. You are the best option in town!
Quality Leadership University is a well-organized and well-structured university where I have always felt welcome and appreciated. The curriculum of their Master in Applied Linguistics provides an excellent opportunity to update yourself in all the new teaching trends, as well as on approaches, strategies and techniques that a top-notch teacher needs to master. The aim of the program is that participants learn how to teach different English subjects, as well as master the best ways to plan lessons and apply all types of traditional or technological resources to produce remarkable classes where the learners will feel engaged and motivated, so that they will access a higher level of proficiency in their English learning experience.
With regards to English language teaching, I don’t think you can find a better Master’s program than the one Quality Leadership University is offering. I did my research on the other universities in the country, specifically; course offerings, cost, reputation, and alumni opinion and they all fell short to QLU’s TESOL program. The features of the program that I enjoyed the most were the flexible schedules, the approachable professors, administrative support and the comradery developed among a student body dedicated to perfecting their craft. Upon successful completion of the program, you can be assured that your newly acquired skills will be in demand, and you will be more than ready to showcase your talents. Get ready to make a difference in a country starving for proficient English language instructors. I highly recommend this Master’s program!
Quality Leadership University offers a strong Master Program, Master in Linguistics – TESOL. It has extremely qualified professors in the field of education. There are not really any comparable programs in Panama. The current trends in educational didactics played a large role in my decision for signing up for the program. I truly believe that enrolling in this program was one of the best decisions I´ve ever made. It definitely gave me a competitive advantage in the educational field as it increased my knowledge, leveraged my strengths, and gave me the opportunity to apply new skills.
Learning and applying the first three subjects of this master’s program has allowed me to strengthen my didactic knowledge as a means to become a better facilitator. The methodological approaches taught by the professors have proven to be very effective and proactive in order to enable our students’ capacity to receive a 21st century education.
