Feedback of teachers who passed our course
I passed the teaching course held by Alexandra Lee. I chose this course because I needed a short program, and it was not a mistake. I liked that all the lessons were in English and included both theory and practice. Theoretical course had only useful information, no idle talks, everything that I apply now at my lessons with kids. The information was structured, it was given to us in the form of tables and conspectus in such a way that it can be used and applied in future. As for practical lessons, I want to thank Alexandra for creating the atmosphere of real lessons; she invited kids who we carried out the classes with, and after the classes every student got feedback and practical advice. I strongly recommend people who think whether to take this course or not to take it without any hesitations because here you obtain real skills which you can apply during your work with children. Sasha, thanks a lot for this course and friendly and cordial atmosphere, it was a pleasure to study with you. I'm waiting for new programs and courses!

I'd like to express my deep gratitude to the trainer of the Wonderland kids teaching course Alexandra Lee for the opportunity to learn the subtlety and secrets of teaching English to kids. First, I want to mention Alexandra's permanent kindness and charming smile: her non-typical approach, creativity, optimism and talent really inspire! I ran to every class with great please and delight. For each class we, the students, prepared the lesson plan on the given topic and one of us presented it at the classes with kids. Certainly before the class we sent the plans to Alexandra and she advised how to revise them to make better. I'm lucky: there were several young and talented teachers in my group who have already had a teaching experience when I was only planning to change the field of my activity and become a teacher. It gave me a huge boost, faith and self-confidence, and I'm thankful to Alexandra first of all and to my colleagues. Now I have 2 students who wait for the next lesson with impatience. So do I, to tell the truth! I reckon the methodology of Wonderland kids to be the best among all the possible ones, and I wish every child had such a teacher as Alexandra! Thank you once again. Your former student, Viktoriya Muratova.

Hello! I'd like to share my impressions of studying at Wonderland kids teacher training. I took the course "Become an English teacher for 2-6 years old kids" carried out by the co-founder of Wonderland Kids studio Alexandra Lee. First, I want to mention the originality of the playful approach in teaching English to kids: being a mom I understand that it's possible to teach kids something new only using the playful approach and in a positive mood. The program of the course is highly topical in not only the sense of theory, description of the methods and psychological aspects of teaching, but it also includes practical lessons. Each student has an opportunity to carry out the classes for kids. Each lesson is discussed in details together with the trainer of the course. I'd like to thank our teacher Alexandra for her professional competence, sympathetic attitude, attentiveness to details and positive mood. This course is useful for both acting teachers and moms who want to teach their kids English. Wish you success!
