My personal opinion about this new experience is that I can feel my English skills are improving much faster than in the classroom. I'm participating more and being an active person during the virtual class. E-learning is making me a creative person because I can access the educational content from anywhere and anytime and I'm saving money on the travel and saving time as well. I'm feeling happy and very comfortable with this way of learning so far. Now I can see that new technologies and new ways to share the wonder of learning are pushing out the old fashion and traditional education. I need to say I have such a good teacher as well!

After 2 weeks into virtual learning, I find that it is really very interesting and new way of learning. Furthermore, I can learn and practice all of my speaking and other skills easily as well as to meet and talk with a lot of new friends from all around the world without moving anywhere. The schedule and online coffee break are also really flexible. Thanks for giving me a great opportunity to explore this new kind of learning.

I have been studying the IELTS preparation course at TAFE Queensland in Brisbane for 7 months. I’m really delighted with the virtual classes because they are of a consistently high standard and enjoyable. I noted that all the educators are prepared for the teaching challenge but I am especially grateful with my teacher, Andrew Fergurson, for all the academic and personal support he provided during my period of studies. Thanks TAFE Queensland for helping me to achieve my dreams!
