Delta – Teacher Jerome Shares his Reactions

Jerome on his Delta Module 2: “It would be a gross understatement to say that Delta Module 2 was a roller-coaster ride of emotions. But it was also a life-changing experience. It made me see the possibilities in my chosen field; made me see myself as a professional, as much as a lawyer or a doctor is a professional. I strongly believe that every practising teacher in ELT should have a Delta (or equivalent).”
