Brian is an exceptional educator who not only excels in his knowledge of the teaching of English as a Second Language, but also shines as a teacher trainer who is able to communicate effectively and efficiently about the ideas, techniques, challenges and difficulties of being an ESL teacher.
It was certainly a delightful experience being a student of Brian’s and having learnt so much in such a short span of time, and together with the credits from Skills Future Singapore, it is definitely a worthwhile investment for anybody who thrills in making a difference in the world. Not only have I benefited from the course knowledge-wise, I am also blessed with friendships forged during the course. For no man is an island as the axiom says; thank you, Brian, and thank you, Impart Learning Centre, for the education, skills and confidence that you have endowed me with.
With the greatest esteem and respect,
I am, as always, your humble servant
Impart Learning has been such a resourceful and enlightening centre, providing a solid foundation for prospective and experienced teachers of English alike. The Diploma in TESOL programme gives a wide exposure to the various pedagogical methods as well as guided lesson development for an interactive practicum.
Overall, the course is highly beneficial for anyone who desires to deepen his or her understanding of English and to forge a career in teaching it.

“My TESOL journey with Impart Learning will always be a memorable experience. Brian’s knowledge and delivery of quality education in this field is unparalleled, in comparison to my previous experience at another institute some time ago.
Through Impart Learning and Brian, I gained a deeper appreciation of the Teacher’s role and presence in the learning environment. To teach is to impart knowledge and insight with passion, and to have fun throughout the process of lifelong learning, as both Teacher and Learner. Thank you, Brian, for such an unforgettable time learning from you, and for the immense support that I received from you, Teacher!”
Looking back it’s been 5 years now since I did TESOL Dip with you. And each time when I go for Professional Development courses, what you have imparted is still so relevant. I still need to dig into your notes. Always am thankful to God for leading me to your class to give me a good head start in this work of teaching adults.
God willing, He might be opening doors to the best part of the journey in this work — teacher training. I have absolutely no clue where to start. Will need your advice then.
Teachers teach but you’ve inspired me to be what I am today. Thanks Brian! A very blessed Teacher’s Day.
Your student always,

alas! I don’t have the guts to write this card in IPA, so here it is in plain ‘ol Roman alphabet.
Thank you for making learning about grammar, teaching, IPA & everything else in between so fun!
There was a lot of metaphorical “drowning” (especially in Module 4), drinking of TESOL ash talismans, and perplexed “AARGH”s each week, but thank you for patiently going through every question and point with us. You mentioned once that your calling is to train & equip people with their course & I am so grateful to have been a recipient of that!! Keep being a great teacher & GOD BLESS!
We have benefitted greatly and grown as teachers as a result of this TESOL course. This would not have been possible without your careful planning and preparation, excellent delivery and explanation of grammar and other teaching concepts. It has been a worthwhile and rewarding ride and we want to express heartfelt appreciation for your hard work.

Joan Polster from the Centre of Workplace Literacy (WDA) called me just now. She was just so curious where I got my TESOL training. It wasn’t reflected in our personal data.
I told her about Impart Learning and you.
She commented that though I am new in WPL, you have given me a very solid foundation in the basics of TESOL.
She saw that in both the courses I took. She commented it’s lacking in a lot of trainers she met who have gone through the TESOL dip course.
Thanks Brian once again. Now I can tell others even CWPL (WDA) says Brian got standard!!

Hope you are keeping well in body and soul. I’m involved in the Yellow Ribbon Project through Kaplan, teaching English in Changi Prison.
In June, I went for a mission trip to Chiang Mai and taught English to theological students in a Bible school.
May God continue to impact many more lives through you!
Best wishes from
Shalom to you!
Many thanks for your training lessons and the invaluable guidance you gave.
Edna and myself were given assignments from Training Vision and we have started our WPL teaching last week.
As for the ad-hoc training you introduced from Translingual, Edna and myself have been training there ever since.
God bless and wish you and your students all the best!

Not one to conform (without a struggle), I find a ‘Thank You’ card too ‘run of the mill’. And this cover just lept at me. Isn’t it brilliant?! So, here’s a card for me AND you.
THANK YOU, BRIAN!
Thanks to you, I got an assignment from NTUC Learning Hub less than a week after I got my cert & that’s only TWO days after the interview & class starts the following week! & I get to teach the advanced level & it’s only across the street from my home!!

I am really happy to be in your class despite some prefer in a class of two students.
Thanks for recommending jobs to me to enhance my teaching aspirations and for believing that I would make a good teacher.)
