  • BODH RAJ DOGRA Oman The course is amazing and the modules are very lucid flavoured with all the nuts and bolts of English Grammar. The language spoken by the incumbent teacher is crystal clear leaving no hiatus for learner to grasp various conceits. Kudos to the selfless endeavours initiated by ALISON and its competent team disseminating Free Education Globally. It would be an hour to serve your organization solely increasing the literacy rate of so many countries without bothering the geopolitical boundaries of the world. I would appreciate and rather implore the custodians of ALISON to help me getting a certified IELTS instructor so that i could be able to help the rural folks of Jammu & Kashmir (India) in preparing them for English Profiency Courses free of cost. Once again thank you very much for teaching me so many new things vital for learning English .
