Student Support

How does ACT adult distance learning in higher education work?

The key to meaningful learning is the way our brain works to extract information from a text, how we absorb that information and recycle the information before finally expressing it into written work. The process of studying encompasses many aspects that enable comprehension, which is reading and search for data, a new cognitive framework emphasizing concepts hierarchy and interrelation, and finally input transformation that is organizing data and writing. The newly acquired thinking structures are not merely dependent on classic memorization; rather promote our reasoning capacity and problem-solving skills. This intellectual development is always permanent and expanding. Learning at Asian College of Teachers is not simply about getting trained, it is also about permanent absorption of newly acquired knowledge and skills.

Reviews of TEFL / TESOL Course



Asian College of Teachers (ACT) undertakes a continuous review of its teacher training courses to ensure imparting high quality education. However, there might be circumstances outside of ACT’s control which might affect its stakeholders like if you are planning to teach in a different country, applying for a teaching license, pursuing higher studies or trying to get the certificate approved by the Ministry of Education (MoE) of a particular country then you can do so with the certificate issued by Asian College of Teachers (ACT). However, each country’s Ministry of Education (MoE) or educational bodies set certain standards that are indispensable for the pursuit of higher studies or teaching in schools in that country. So it can be a possibility that you may be able to use the certificate for higher studies or teaching purposes in one country and not in another. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you investigate thoroughly and check with the relevant authorities regarding the acceptance of the certificate issued by us before you enrol on a particular course. ACT strives to offer high-quality education and its certificates can be valuable for various purposes internationally, but still it is crucial for individuals to verify the specific recognition of the certificate in the country they intend to use it, especially for formal education or professional licensing purposes. This approach ensures that the stakeholders make informed decisions regarding their educational and career paths.
