Other Aussies' Comments  "We are Australians living in Chiang Mai Thailand.  My husband and I both loved doing the Oxbow TESOL Certificate course.  We feel that it is the best course of its kind, and we are very appreciative of Oxbow for running such a professional and effective course.  Thanks to this course we both had employment options in a school as soon as we arrived in the country. It was the foot in the door that we needed and the training and skill development that is with us for life. Despite most schools requiring a university degree, the Oxbow TESOL Certificate was readily accepted instead." ~ Marcus and Melonie P, Albury, VIC
