I really enjoyed the 120 Hour TEFL course here! Everything in this course is very informative especially the videos! I wish it was longer though but still it gave me a lot of ideas on what to do or not to do inside the classroom! The people behind LoveTEFL are very prompt! They answer to emails and chatbox. They are accommodating and always keen to lend you a helping hand. I highly recommend this course to everyone! It’s worth the time and money! Thank you, LoveTEFL! :)

It’s been a while since I’ve chosen to study anything for a specific period of time but I really enjoyed this experience. Having spent quite a bit of time looking at the different courses on offer, choosing LoveTEFL was definitely the right choice for me. The course layout was well structured and easy to follow and also had plenty of helpful materials and links to other websites along the way. I was delighted to Pass the course at the first attempt and having paid for express marking, received my grade the very next day! Thanks to my tutor and everyone involved in helping me get this far, now to put it to use in the classroom. A great course that I would happily to anyone thinking of pursuing TEFL as a career.

I absolutely loved the program, I am going to a place that I have always wanted to go and the online course worked magnificently with my schedule. I worked diligently to make sure the lesson plan and the written work were as good as I could possibly make them, and the structure was fairly easy to follow. I give all great reviews and I appreciate the opportunity this group has given me.

The Love Tefl 120 hour course is a cost efficient option with an immense amount of resources. The modules are set up so you can complete the course at your own pace which is perfect for someone who is already employed and looking to increase their knowledge. The course does lack in class teaching but you definitely get what you pay for and more.

I have recently completed the 120 hour Love TEFL course and I can thoroughly recommend it! I searched for a long time to find a reputable company who offered a course which would give me a good grounding in teaching English and I am glad I found Love TEFL!

I found the content really good, covering all aspects of teaching English as a foreign language, and I feel I have gained a solid foundation on which to build a career in the classroom. The course was comprehensive, with excellent support and extremely helpful feedback from my tutor – thank you!

I would also like to praise the wonderful customer service I experienced – every query I had was answered promptly and to my satisfaction.

Money well spent – A+!

( I have not used the job placement so have not rated that part!)

This was a very enjoyable course, it has an aesthetically pleasing layout and is extremely simple to use. The lessons are well structured and, although repetitive, present all required knowledge clearly alongside further reading sources.
I was however most impressed with the quality of their feedback. After all it’s nice to know that the lesson plan you stressed about perfecting was adjudged accurately and criticised constructively.
I have yet to experience their job placement side of the company, I simply felt it harsh to mark them down for that which I have not yet experienced.
Thank you LoveTefl for being a reputable and helpful company.

This course was an invaluable catalyst to the start of my Tefl career. The course provides valuable lesson plan ideas, guidance and instructions on how to become the most effective teacher. In addition, the staff have always been helpful and eager to give advice or feedback. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone wanting to teach English abroad whether as a gap year or as a career. For the cost of the course, you won’t find a better tefl provider!

The LoveTEFL course was actually more than I anticipated and that was positive. It was thorough and complete with many opportunities to review concepts more than once in a different area of the material. The quality and quantity of the “Resources” listed in the materials for further reading and study was amazing. I have bookmarked and saved and printed tons of material to use as resources in many areas and levels of teaching English.
The lesson plan content in the course was very helpful. There was a variety of ways and techniques to approach lesson planning with different levels and ages of students.
The quizzes during the modules are excellent to help one focus on really learning material. It was very helpful to be able to review the answers and retake a quiz if desired.
The feedback provided after submission of the final written work was very complete and I could immediately appreciate the suggestions made by the tutor.
I am not sure if I will actually teach an English class. I hope that I will. However, even if I don’t, the content provided a challenging learning opportunity in a subject I have always liked. Some of the teaching methods will be helpful in interacting with groups, teaching or not.
The staff was available to answer questions through chat or email. I suggest it might be helpful to online students for a staff to call or email them in midst of their course to provide a support and encourage questions if needed.
I did not comment on practice teaching, job placement, or facilities/resources, not applicable for my situation.

I have just finished taking LoveTefl 120-hour course. It was a very thought-provoking and interesting experience. The format was very user-friendly. The teaching style of the course is very good; it teaches TEFL concepts through a lot of different angles; it incorporates core information, quizzes, tests, additional resources, and feedback to teach you the necessary course material. In my opinion, this style is very effective; it slowly builds a very coherent and informative mosaic of important and practical course information, and at the end, you start to fully appreciate the concepts that were taught to you.
The price of the course was also great, the value for the money is truly unbeatable.
Additional information modules throughout the course present a ton of useful supplemental knowledge, I believe that this extra information truly gives you all the tools you need to start your career in EFL teaching.
The course is not really hard, but it really is thought provoking, it gets you thinking about the material and the world of TEFL, and the fruits of this labor really set you on a right path to becoming a great EFL teacher.
All the staff at LoveTefl are great, very quick to respond to any questions that you may have and very friendly. My end of the course assignments were graded super fast and a very comprehensive and helpful feedback was provided.
Many thanks to this course and the people who created it !!!

LoveTEFL offers a fantastic course for those wanting to undertake a TEFL at their own pace. The module content is vast and full of valuable and useful approaches, tips and requirements in order to pass the course. I would definitely recommend this course to those who have experience working with children as the lack of practice teaching perhaps prevents those who do not have experience from appreciating what teaching is like. The course content itself is broken down in very manageable sections allowing you do to as much or as little in one sitting as you like. As the course recovers some material in various different sections you can refresh your learning and bridge information together. I would not advise buying the express marking add on as the feedback I received was amazing and within 48 hours anyway. The reviewer obviously takes time and care with your lesson plan/written work and makes very constructive comments. Overall, I am extremely please with the LoveTEFL course and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a well structured and detailed course.

I am extremely happy that I did LoveTEFL. I had joined the course way back in October 2014, but due to time constraint I took longer to complete than I expected. My Heart felt gratitude to my tutor Natalie Ruggins for all the guidance and feedback. Before I joined the course I had never thought that I would like to go abroad and find a teaching job. In fact I was very apprehensive initially. But as I proceeded and progressed I found it very interesting, engaging, informative and insightful. It has been a great learning experience for me as in India we rely heavily on the chalk and board method and an over indulgence in using the translation method.
The online structure of the course is well planned and the layout is systematic. Information provided in each module has been broken down into manageable portions and quick tests throughout the course helped reinforce my ability to understand and interpret. Moreover, suggestions and guidelines for further reading at the end of each module helped me to actually immerse myself totally into the course. The course has generated my interest in experimenting with a variety of approaches in my lessons, and to devise fun activities for my students.
I am thankful that guidance was provided to me over phone and mail as and when I desired. The course and the feedback I received, has boosted my self confidence and now I can dare to venture out of India.
I have already begun to recommend this course to my friends who wish to further their teaching carrier and aspire to expand their horizon.
Thank you LoveTEFL!

I am happy with the course it was what I needed in order to boost my career and to have an input of how should I plan, structure, etc my lesson. I would defenetly recommend this course! Cheers

The LoveTEFL course was very enjoyable! The learning material was well structured and easy to follow. There was a range of examples and practical tips, which I found really useful, although it would have been helpful to see more examples of full lesson plans to see how the theory is applied to a full one-hour lesson. I liked the fact that the multiple choice tests throughout the course didn’t have easily predictable answers and really tested the understanding of the course content. The course also included a wealth of additional resources which will no doubt be extremely helpful when I start teaching. The staff were very prompt in replying and the feedback given at the end of the course was very detailed and helpful. All in all, I would highly recommend the LoveTEFL course!

This was the most cost-effective TEFL provider I was able to find while also giving me a certificate that I feel would be accepted abroad. However, I found the content to be very common sense based and did not challenge me.

The lesson planning work is really well done and they do provide good feedback on your submitted assignment. But I felt like they could have gone into more detail about classroom management (like dealing with children you have bad behavior); of course you will learn these things best when you actually start teaching. For the price though, you get exactly what you pay for. It was basic, a good intro to all the categories, and you get a certificate.

Unlike other certificate providers where you pay a lot more money, Love TEFL does not seem to act as a recruiter for you or have a job board with connections to lots of countries. They do however, for a fee, have internships with schools in a few popular countries. I do not plan on using this service.

While there are a lot of links to good resources on lesson planning, games and activities for ESL, and other English grammar webpages, you will no longer have access to these links when the 3 month course is over. I find that a bit unfortunate, but then the internet has lots of resources you can search for on your own anyways.

Having never taught before, it has provided me with the correct resources for me to feel confident in the classroom and i have been able to complete it whilst finishing my final year at university. I look forward to starting my internship! Thank you!

For the ladies and gentlemen working behind the scenes for LoveTEFL- I extend a huge ‘Thank You!’ I had sent a few emails during my course and the responses back were always nice as well as sent back quickly. This course was well written, objective driven, and extremely informative. I was working 3 jobs and still managed to make time to pass this course! I am extremely excited to travel abroad and see what m future holds, all to the help of this TEFL. Thank you so much!

I took the TEFl 120 online course. this course has lots of information.
I really enjoyed it a lot. I found the extra reading materials and videos
helpful. At, times I had difficulties due the course being British English.
being that I am native american English speaker.
However; the overall content of this course was great in my opinion!
I have learnt a lot of terminology, teaching methodologies.

They offer lots of teaching resources. This is a goldmine for any
new or old teachers. I would like to give a thanks to Liz and Claire Baker.
They wrer very helpful and answered all my questions with speed.
I was very surprised by the quick response. I would recoomend this
120 hour online course to away interested in TEFL.

Once again thank you ​ very much!
respectfully,

Carlton Duncans

From the moment I signed up to the course I felt encouraged and supported. I appreciated the messages that congratulated me for completing each unit. It was easy to navigate my way around the website.

In addition to this, my assignment feedback from my tutor was detailed and incredibly helpful.

Love TEFL provides you with lots of practical resources and really sets you up for a successful future teaching English as a foreign language.

Highly recommend it! Love TEFL!

I had been searching for an online TEFL course for a while before coming across Love TEFL.
I found it was the best quality-for-cost online course available.
I now feel well prepared to give different types of lessons to a variety of different people. This includes large groups, small groups, one-to-one classes. Younger learners and older learners.
The content was well explained and interactive, with quizzes and exams to keep you motivated.
I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to do an online TEFL course. It is great value for money and teaches everything you need to know!

First of all I’d like to thank God for an opportunity to get into the course. I’d had no idea what TEFL was about till the moment I was presented with this course by my friend.
There are always some pros and cons and most of them depend on person’s expectations. I hadn’t had any of those at all before I was involved and since that time I’ve been in love with TEFL things.
I found the content of the course being very useful and helpful for novices but the main thing I can say is that LoveTEFL course gives you ideas and thoughts to get started with. Maybe it doesn’t include all the materials and information some people prefer to have but it depends on personal attutide and passion for learning and getting better in teaching.
My special thanks to LoveTEFL for:
1. “Putting planning into practice” section – it’s really great;
2. All the “top tips” in the end of each section;
3. Useful examples of lesson plans;
4. Video examples of teaching;
5. Suggestions, support and feedback from my tutor.

The course is more that worth of its price and highly recommended!

I am glad I chose LoveTEFL as my course provider. The team was very courteous and professional. They help and guide you through every step.
The material was easy to understand and though I was not in a face-to-face or classroom environment, I grew more excited as I completed each module. The quizzes and end of module tests are a great way to check your understanding of the material.

I was very impressed with how quickly I received my grades and review at the end of the course, but I was even more impressed by the quality of the written feedback.

I highly recommend LoveTEFL to anyone who is thinking of teaching English as a foreign language.

I have just completed the 120 hour LoveTEFL course and I have found it extremely useful. The course provided me with a lot of valuable information to take into account while planning and putting in practice a lesson plan. I found really helpful the videos and further readings provided to fully understand each planning stage. There are several quizzes that have helped me to review my learning process. The final assessment has been a nice challenge that has helped me to go back to the content of the course and review those less clear items. Overall I am quite happy with this course and I consider that it’s good value for money.

I have just completed and passed the 120 hour LoveTEFL course.
The course did seem a bit breezy until I got to the final assessment and realised that all the stuff I had been skimming over I actually had to know and use. I highly recommend learning almost everything the course teaches you as you go through the quite simple multiple choice section tests, as it will save time for the final assessment.
But once the final assessment was done I had learnt a lot and could feel comfortable telling people that I am a qualified TEFL teacher.
As for job placement, their website offers this service for countries I am not presently interested in. I shall update my review when I have applied for and gotten a job in my target country.
But a fun course. I definitely feel as though I have a real, valuable TEFL qualification. I would recommend LoveTEFL it to anybody who does not have the time or the finances to take an outrageously expensive or ludicrously time-heavy course.

I did the 120 hour course and I really enjoyed it. I did it online, which at first I was a little daunted with in the beginning, but I found the whole thing to be extremely user friendly, highly functional and well laid out. The course content is clear and simply, but effectively presented. The quizzes and tests are also simple and effective, both as a testing tool and as teaching tool; they will make you think. The feedback always comes back quickly and is honest and helpful. The lesson plan guidance was, as mentioned above, clear and simply, but effectively presented; making it really easy to learn about and highly informative.

Since completing the course, I have personally recommended it to a few people that I know, and I would like to recommend it to you too.

I would definitely recommend Love TEFL to those who are thinking of taking a TEFL course without needing to pay extortionate fees. Even for those without budget restraints I would still highly recommend this TEFL provider. The course is extremely well detailed.

In regards of planning a lesson, which is what the majority of new learners tend to fear the most, Love TEFL goes through all the steps necessary to produce a good quality lesson plan. They give you so many ideas and explain in relatively simple terms. In addition, sample lesson plans are available to give you an insight into how a lesson plan is made.

Moreover, the course goes into depth about classroom management and how to actually execute a class. Even though this course is 100% online i.e. no teaching component, you can still learn a lot from watching various video clips of teachers in the classroom. I found these quite helpful.

There are many quizzes and short questions that get you thinking and keeps you mentally stimulated. Over time, thinking from a potential teacher’s perspective starts to come more naturally.

Upon passing the course, I was given ample feedback. The feedback gave me lots of useful information telling me about the positives and negatives of the assessment. The assessment itself gives you a real test of life as a teacher.

When the course has ended, there are a large host of weblinks that lead to ESL job posting websites. Actually finding a job after finishing the course was something I was initially concerned about, but thanks to Love TEFL I now have many options open to me in starting up a career in teaching English overseas.

I like how your progress is saved each time you log out. It helps jog your memory so you do not accidentally repeat a section that you may have completed a few days ago. I appreciate how the course is broken down into manageable chunks and when moving onto different sections they praise you for your endeavour.

The only slight criticism is that a few weblinks provided did not work. The vast majority are fine but perhaps the ‘further information’ sections need updating to ensure all weblinks work properly.

Overall the course is reasonably priced, professional, structured in a logical way and has a fairly demanding assessment procedure. With some hard work you can enjoy this course and improve your teaching qualities.

I did the course about 6 months ago, and remember it being cheap, convenient and quick. It’s a good get your foot in the door kind of qualification, but if you’re looking to make teaching english abroad a long-term or more permanent career, go for the CELTA. You’ll have more options.

The placement program (not the internships) is good for getting some basic and first time teaching experience, particularly in Thailand (or China – other locations through this program need more specific qualifications.) It’s probably better if you just find a job yourself on a TEFL job board. You’ll make 27,000 baht through a LoveTEFL placement, but could make more if they didn’t take a 3,000-5,000 baht placement/ in country support fee from your wages. They advertise great schools, in country support and an orientation, but let’s be honest, there was none of that. I’d describe my frustrations with them, and the school they placed me in, in detail, but I don’t want to be nit-picky. It’s Thailand after all, so a lot of patience is required. Just because I had a bad experience with them, doesn’t mean every one will. It’s a business, so their main priority is money. Choose this program for the price not for the quality.

This course provided a good basis for the way to plan and carry out a lesson and the basics of teaching. After reading the materials I had plenty of information for me to complete the assessment element of the course. Being online it was ideal for me as a long distance learner. I really enjoyed watching the video clips. To improve this course I would liked to have seen a few more videos with some work along the way e.g. watch a video then submit a short piece of work. There were a lot of online multiple choice quizzes, but after a while it would have been nice to have been tested in other ways rather than multiple guess all the time.

Work was easy to submit and was marked almost immediately and detailed and thorough feedback was given by my tutor who clearly has a great understanding of the subject matter and how to give good feedback. Even though I didn’t need any assistance, it would have been great if my online tutor would have emailed me to check how I was doing once in a while rather than just checking my work at the end. One idea I had would have been for my tutor to call me on skype or to email to check in at certain stages of the course. It is great that my certificate can be emailed to me whilst I wait for the hard copy.

Overall I would recommend this course but doing a course completely online is a different experience to classroom learning and takes dedication and discipline. It is a very flexible approach which I liked and there was enough detail without providing information for the sake of it. It is a convenient way to learn as you can go at your own pace and there is plenty of extra reading, this had some interesting takes on different approaches to learning and extra lesson content.

If you want to get into teaching or do some teaching as part of a trip abroad then this course is great value for money and will give you all of the basics and materials that you need to make a start.

I really enjoyed the support from Love Tefl throughout the course. It was well organized and always provided extra information. The course outline was layed out very well with strong supportive guidelines throughout each section. A good introduction course into the world of Tefl. I feel much stronger and confident in my lesson plan preparation and theoretical knowledge of the English Language. Thank you once again for all of your help and support Love Tefl!

A very well written course, included a wide range of resources which were very helpful including videos, quizzes etc. I managed to complete the course after a few months inbetween my full time job, which was a relief. I didn’t find the course over complicated so it was easier to memorise a lot of key points. The feedback I received was quick and helpful. I definitely feel more confident to teach English now! Would highly recommend this course!

It was a really fast and simple course that I enjoyed. Everything was quite straight forward and I felt it was helpful. I could recognize techniques used to teach from when I took foreign language classes. I had worked as a teacher part time before, and I am now much more confident in my ability to write good lesson plans.

I didn’t use the job placement or instructor resources, though they are available.

A great online course full of lots of resources and extra material to ensure new teachers feel prepared and fully equipped.
The Love TEFL team are very friendly and always on hand, responding very quickly to any emails or questions throughout the course.
As the course is online there is no practical teaching practice, however the content is extensive and offers practical advice for classroom situations.
All in all, a great inexpensive course to get you on your way to teaching English as a foreign language.

Not long completed the 120 hour online course i found it interesting and easy to follow I got nervous on most quizzes As I wanted to get the multi choice questions correct so it sticks in my head. Once the final quiz was completed, I could then spend time on the lesson plan, having not studied for a long time I found brains I never thought I had and at times I would get frustrated not knowing if it was correct or not once this was complete I spend a whole day preparing for the essay and then executed it! with all the regurgitated information I had in my head from the course lol.. Overall I found the course really good it gave me a better insight to how teachers prepare and gives you an idea of what your up against. All loveTEFL staff are fantastic and very helpful and when you get stuck they are reassuring with any problems you may have..I highly recommend the course…:)

I had a great experience with LoveTEFL! The format was easily accessible and readable. The quizzes during the sections helped so much. It was pretty much like having an instructor right in front of you telling you what you needed to know. This made the process of going through the course so much easier. I received emails of motivation and guidance and always had my questions answered via email very quickly. Overall, it is well worth the money and I would recommend it to others considering working on a TEFL certificate online. I did not star the “practice teaching”, “instructor competency”, or “job placement”, as those categories did not pertain to my situation.

I completed the 120 hr online course recently. It was a thorough and carefully planned course.There were videos and links to resources, which showed applications of the acquired knowledge in the classroom. The staff was also supportive and ready to help.I had a great experience and I would say that, choosing LoveTefl was really worth it. I would recommend it to everyone interested in taking a Tefl course.

A well structured course, clear in its aims. I could have appreciated a more personal approach but to be honest I was never in contact with intructors, as I didn’t have any problems. I liked the set-up, the explanations of the subjects and the videos that came with the course. It was a motivating and practical course. There was a clear path leading you to the end of it. A recommendation!

I really enjoyed this course. As a teacher of 16 years I wanted to expand my skills and hope to teach in Italy in the summers and France another time. The course is set out well and if you do have any problems at all the LoveTefl team are on the other end of the phone with friendly, helpful advise. I did find some of the questions to the quiz questions presented in the course ambiguous though and have told this to the team. however, the course prepares you for the online assessment and for the written work due in at the end. Thank you for the experience. I am looking forward to spending a summer in Italy.

The course overall was really informative.

The modules and course content was well laid out and all the content flowed well into the next topic.

The first module was hard going as it involved a lot of technical language I wasn’t used to but with the little quizzes and tests along the way I picked it up with relative ease. How much I did know was only really apparent during the final exam and I put that down to the courses use of subtle repetition. R

The videos along the way and brain storming sections help you apply the theory side to real life scenarios. There was lots of oportunities to practice what youII’d learnt in various methods, if you learn kinetically or by repetition or quizzes or bullet point and list work or by copying. The course covered lots of different ways to help you understand and learn the material.

The content itself was really interesting. Apart from the basic grammer it helped me recap/relearn completely, the tips and tricks to help you in real life situations were practical and realistic.

The lesson planning was drawn out and lengthy in parts but I’m glad I stuck at it as it all came together in the end and I was pleasantly surprised with how well it did. Once again, the repetition although subtle at times, helped put ideas into my subconscious throughout the course which stood me in good stead for the final exam.

The exam had sparse instructions and I was quite worried about my capabilities at first. Once I had started though a lot of the course material came back to me and it showed the brilliance of the course.

The feedback from my exam was excellent. The marking was very quick and having done exams my entire life waiting only a week for marking was eexcellent. My certificate arrived within 4 days of getting my result and feedback.

Overall I cannot fault this course. Its been enjoyable and well worthwhile through and I am going to strognly recommend it to my friends and family. Whether you want to use the qualification to teach abroad, to assist you in the UK or simply to have under your belt, for the price I think you’re getting the best deal around.

Thank you LoveTEFL. it’s been a pleasure.

This course was much more comprehensive and involved than what I expected from an online course. The chapters are structured in a logical way and the feedback is extremely thorough. The course contains a number of quick quizzes, some of them being multiple choice questions – I found some of these challenging as I was unable to elaborate on my choice or the question was vague. Other than this, the quizzes did help in confirming my knowledge. Being an online course, there is obviously no actual class time/ practice time. Overall, the course is of a good standard and is very good quality for money.

I have been teaching Tefl for a few years now, and I wasn’t excited to take a course on it just for a silly new visa. However, I found that the program was quite interesting. I was able to learn a few new tricks as well as solidify some tactics that I was already using. The course is full of useful material, demos, and links. The instructor that helped me was thorough and quick to respond. I will suggest to anyone who is starting into the TEFL field.

(I meant to refrain from giving stars to practice teaching, but once you click on a star it won’t let you take them all away)

As this 120 TEFL course was completed prior to my teaching placement in China, I have not been able to rate the ‘job placement’ or ‘practice teaching’ sections, as all of my preparation has been theoretical until this point.
Ideally I would have liked this course to have a practical element to consolidate the theoretical learning as there are some things that an online course just can’t prepare for. Having said that, the course include real life scenarios to work through, as well as videos of lessons taught by TEFL teachers, which were a good starting point to get you thinking out of the box, although it would have bee good to expand these further.
I found the links to various websites and resources extremely useful and will be saving these for reference later on. The one thing I could have done with more guidance on is grammar. It would have been good to have a clear, concise guide which summarised the basics. The mini tests throughout were great for tracking learning and understanding which areas I still needed practice on.
Overall this course was a great investment- the value for money is fantastic- and I’m now looking forward to teaching in China for the next 6 months!

The course was easy to follow and the section tests were a useful guide to see how you were doing and to review your knowledge. I am happy with the service and the product and would recommend to anyone looking into a tefl adventure!

I did the 120 hour online course, which means some of the categories for rating were not relevant. That said, I found it to be an excellent course. It allowed some revision of key grammar points and did introduce some new elements. I particularly was appreciative of the lesson planning module as this is usually underestimated in teaching. The support was great, queries were responded to quickly. I found the tips at the end of each module quite useful. The pracitce tests and quizzes interspersed throughout the modules were excellent for revision and reflection. The additional resources given were good. What I may say here is that some were a bit overwhelming to go through them all as I felt I did not want to miss anything. Perhaps few key additional resources (sites) could be selected instead of a long list. The feedback on the final assessment was comprehensive, something one may keep for future reference. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the excellent thing is you get to do it at your own pace from anywhere. I would recommend the course to anyone contemplating it.

I have just completed the 120 hour online course. Feedback is very quick and helpful, I got my results only two days after completing. The material was very useful with the basics to get you started, although some was really heavy going such as the phonemic chart and the 12 tenses.

In the beginning I struggled with some of the quizzes but as I went on and learned stuff, they got much easier. The structure flows well enough to be able to follow through and the three month time frame is a very generous amount of time, especially if you are busy in between the course.

Some of the videos were helpful, however I would have preferred to have some actual videos showing games and teachers giving lessons.

LoveTefl is a fantastic start and a great base to work from, the staff are very committed and dedicated to helping you, I would recommend this course.

I completed the 120 hour online course. The structure of the course was excellent and easy to follow, with end of section tests to make sure you have understood everything. There is a lot of information to take in, but it is devided into sections so it is not overwhelming. I felt the course really provided me with practical information I would need when teaching including classroom management.

I purchased the express marking and received my results within the same day. The course assessments come with feedback from the tutor which was excellent.The staff were friendly and supportive throughout the process. I would recommend this course as it is great value for money.

Though I would have appreciated more videos since it’s an online course, I felt as though the concepts from a teaching standpoint seemed very real and legitimate. Both my mother and 2 sisters are teachers so I really appreciated how insightful this course was regarding what teaching can be like. A terrific value too, as I spent weeks comparing different options and this one was definitely the best “bang for your buck”.

I took LoveTEFL course to pursue a secondary profession. I spent some time to compare available internet courses prior to choosing LoveTEFL and as well got an advice from professional teacher on my course selection. Before the course, I had zero idea on teaching methodologies and techniques. So what this course gave me in terms of teaching skills and how do I estimate it from the benefit/cost ratio?
Being an absolute novice, I think that the amount of material included and its structure are more than enough for me. I’m sure I can build a successful teaching practice upon what I studied during the course (well, at least in a non-english speaking country like mine). The quality of the course, in my humble opinion, is supreme, though I would greatly appreciate some keyword search functionality to quickly get to some point I need to revise.
As for the benefit/cost ration. I remember for sure that the price of the course was very important criterion for me as during the selection process I was not sure about committing myself to full-time teaching. I also tend to think about the teaching as a second job unless the crisis ruins the industry I have spent fifteen years in so far. Therefore, I chose the least expensive course. I also had an advice from a professional teacher who generally was not optimistic about online courses in general, but admitted the idea of taking one by a novice teacher for introduction purposes. So choosing from the reasonably priced course was logical.
To sum up, the course gave me a good understanding of the way a teacher does his job in a class for a quite modest price. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who does not have a professional teaching background but is willing to try to be a teacher.

I purchased the ‘Love TEFL’ course with high hopes and it certainly did not disappoint! There was so much content and the tests after each module were an excellent tool to help recap what had been learnt in the module.
The only negative thing I would say about the Love TEFL course was that the content was quite heavy and wordy at times, however, that could be a personal preference.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to teach ESL. I secured a job before I even completed the course, all thanks to the brilliant Love TEFL course.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing the LoveTEFL 120 hour online course. I felt that each section was very relevant and would be useful for teaching English abroad. The overview of grammar was particularly useful for me as I was a bit rusty in that area! The mix of written material, real life footage and interactive quizzes kept me engaged throughout the course. Also the ‘Taking it Further’ section at the end has provided me with good information and resources for finding a job abroad. The feedback on my lesson plan and essay was fantastic. I did not expect to receive my mark and feedback within 24 hours of submitting my assessment! Very impressed with the turnaround and the high level of customer service. I would definitely recommend this course to my friends.

I am happy to recommend loveTEFL to anyone actually I already did. And I did it because although it is a lot of reading I consider, all the material I read, as practical, realistic and well founded. Also, their feedback system is super fast I am glad I did not have to wait for a long time waiting for the answer.

I would love to have had little more of videos, longer ones and even videos of what not to do and a small interviews in the same video of the teachers to share a little bit of their experience on the subject. That would be really nice to have during the course a session with a tutor not only for question or doubts but to expose for instance the planning lesson material I think that would have deeper benefits.

I chose the LoveTEFL 120 hour online course because I live in Slovenia and didn’t have a huge amount of money to spend on travelling to attend the more highly regarded on site courses that involve gaining a lot of practical experience. I did have doubts about taking an online course because I was worried about what benefits I would really gain and also because there are so many scams on the internet.

I started knowing nothing about teaching English as a foreign language and now feel that I am prepared to start my own business teaching English privately. I realise that really the course itself is only the start. At the very least I have to now gather a huge library of resources to use to enable me to make lessons beneficial and interesting for all the students that are likely to come to me but now, at least, I know what is required and how to achieve it.

The course itself is divided into three main sections. There is a lot of information to get through and there are regular tests to check your understanding. The tests are generally multiple choice but don’t be fooled into thinking that that makes them easy. The tests themselves are often used as teaching tools and if you don’t pass them you cannot progress any further through the course. It is estimated to take 3 months to complete the course and if you don’t complete it in that time you will have to pay extra to extend the course. It took me about half that time, but I was effectively working as a full-time student so 3 months is probably a good estimate if you are doing it part-time.

At the end of the course you have to complete an online exam, prepare a lesson plan and write an essay explaining your lesson plan. I was a little daunted by the prospect but persevered and passed.

I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the LoveTEFL staff seem very committed to their work and their students. At one stage early in the course I had a question about something, I wrote my query on the website request form and expected an email response over the next day or so. I was so shocked when my phone rang less than 2 hours later with a staff member from LoveTEFL asking me how they could help that I almost forgot what it was I wanted to ask about. I was not expecting anyone to call me in Slovenia when they are based in the UK.
Similarly you are told to expect your exam results within seven days of submitting all your work. I submitted my work on a saturday and was issued my results with comprehensive feedback on my lesson plan and essay on Monday morning! That’s exceptional service and support.

The LoveTEFL 120 hour course was considerably cheaper than many other online courses that I found and it came highly recommended by many people.

This course provided me with everything I needed. Obviously there is nothing better that going on a course where you can practice with real students but if you are not in a position to do that then I would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking of teaching English as a foreign language. It’s comprehensive, clear, nicely structured, well supported and very good value for money.

I took the TEFL cert course on an employers recommendation, though it was not required for the position, and boy am I glad I did. It’s very eye opening. I feel as though I’ve gained several skills I may have been blindsided by if proceeding to teach without. I finished the course in about 2 weeks, and failed the lesson plan portion once. My tutor was outstanding in helping me after I failed and I was able to secure the pass on the 2nd week.

I recently completed the 120-hour online TEFL course, which was a really nice experience. Writing the final lesson plan and receiving feedback on it was the most useful bit of the course, in my opinion, even though to become prepared for it you need equally fundamental material throughout the whole course. It is in fact only when you think up a lesson plan yourself from beginning to end that you really grasp how you should set things up and why. The final feedback was also great, the tutor praised what was done well and provided constructive suggestions for improvement, touching on every aspect of the lesson plan and of the related essay. Other elements such as detailed material, quizzes and the many linked external resources were also precious!

One thing that you feel is missing is actual practice, but for £99 one really cannot ask for more. Still, if a little practice could be integrated somehow, this would be great in order to get a feel of the actual teaching experience. Not sure how this could be developed exactly. Perhaps via the internships that they offer.

All in all a great course and the team is really always there trying their best to help and support you while you’re learning. Well done and thank you!

LoveTefl was recommended to me by someone who did an internship with them and I’m very glad she did!
I have just completed the online 120 hrs course, so can’t really comment on practice teaching, instructor competency or job placement, but the team have all come across as very friendly and helpful in any dealings I have had with them, and the online course was structured in a thorough, accessible way, which, even as someone working in informal education already, I found enlightening and useful. Feedback on my submission at the end was far more detailed than I had expected – which was fantastic.
I perhaps agree that there was a little more focus on younger kids than teenagers, and you don’t have the chance to practice class management etc, though I think that learning on the job (within reason!) is part of any teaching experience, and is arguably what makes it interesting.

In summary of the LoveTefl 120 hrs online course- it offers:

- an approachable and helpful team
- a thorough and structured course content
- great value for money

I’d definitely recommend it to people already fairly confident in an education or entertainment role. If you feel you’d benefit from more support initially, I’d consider opting for their internship programme.

I have just finished the Love TEFL course. Overall it was a positive experience. I feel I’ve a better understanding of what is expected of me as a ESL teacher. It took me a couple of the multiple choice quizzes to get used to the style of questions but once I got used to them I was fine. It is definitely a good introduction to the various styles, and teaching methods available. I now feel confident that I understand how I can tailor my lesson plans to the ages group and level of the students I will will be teaching. The feed back in relation to the course work was very constructive, I’d definitely recommend the course to anyone looking for an introduction to ESL teaching. Very useful for first time teachers like myself.

I really enjoyed this course and it really helps prepare you for teaching English. It supplies you with a lot of useful resources and takes you through the process of teaching english in a logical manner and gives you a really strong foundation for teaching and shows the best way to plan your lessons. I done the online course and it was easy to do it while I was working and fit it into my busy schedule. The staff at lovetefl were also very helpful and kind.

i just recently finished my 120 hr TEFL course with LoveTEFL and i must say that it is all worth it.. i have learnt a lot from their modules that could help me become a better english teacher. the list of possible activities for warmers,coolers and etc are of big help as i’ve tried incorporating some on my english class back home. i am thankful for the assistance that the staff had offered especially when i have queries with regards to my course. the review that they had given on my requirements were awesome! credits to ms. nathalie, my tutor. Her choice of words were very constructive, encouraging and appreciative. i consider finishing my TEFL in just about 30 days as an achievement! i am an non native english speaker but it feels so overwhelming to have experienced an international studies. thank you so much LoveTEFL for the awesome experience. for your very welcoming accomodation. i am looking forward to avail internship programs with you soon. more power!

I have just completed the 120 hour online course run by LoveTefl, and definitely feel the experience has given me a great starting point, and knowledge base, in learning to be an effective language teacher.

It was a bit of a steep learning curve initially, mainly because my study skills had gotten a bit rusty over the previous 7 years since leaving University. But once I had gotten my teeth stuck into business my motivation increased, especially after seeing how obviously relevant all of the course material was, in relation to my end goal. Other students enrolling after a few years away from hitting the books may also experience a bit of the same initial shock!

I had reason to contact admin at LoveTefl a few times over the duration of the course, and replies were, without exception, extremely quick, helpful and supportive.

By the end, I could feel how much I had learnt, and feel confident and excited about about applying my knowledge within the classroom.

I personally would have benefited more from the learning experience if I’d had more information to hand in hard copy form, but that’s not a criticism of this course, but rather a greater understanding of how I personally learn best. However, despite that, It’s my opinion that anyone taking the TEFL course through LoveTefl course, who is willing to put the necessary hours in, will have absolutely no regrets, and look back positively on the experience.

The Love TEFL course was excellent and a really good way to gain the qualification. The content of the course was split into easy chunks so you could clearly see your progress. It also included links to many other sites so you expand on your reading. The best thing about the course was the mini “tests/quizzes” throughout the course (didn’t count towards final grade) which were so useful for checking understanding. The assessment was very clear in outlining what was needed. It also made it extremely easy to upload files – a part I was dreading as I expected it to be a nightmare! The feedback was very clear and useful and quick – I heard back within 7 hours of submitting my work! Overall a very worthwhile and straightforward way to complete the course.

One criticism is that it was very complicated to get a time extension. In fact I was forced to get a time extension because the deadline date was not made clear to me which I was not very happy about.

I have just received my results on completion of this Love TEFL course and felt compelled to leave a review.
From start to finish,all and any interaction i have had with the team has been an absolute pleasure.Wether a voicemail or email,the warmth and support shown is truly comendable.Each member of staff has been helpful and accommodating every step of the way.In direct regard to the online 120 hour course,i found it to be very easy to absorb and helpful in the way it is ordered.With a plethora of information written in simple,easy to understand vernacular,it really is accessible to anyone. Admittedly i was quite nervous when starting the course as i have not done any into depth studying for around 5 years since becoming a chef i thought i would struggle, but i can honestly say i have really enjoyed it.I am looking forward to february which is when i join the love tefl team in china and embark on my 6 month job placement. If you’re having any problems deciphering which company to choose,firstly thats a great thing as its really important no research fully and choose someone who is not just going to give you an easy pass,and secondly choose Love TEFL as they are everything you can expect from a great established company and so much more.

I thoroughly enjoyed completing this course with personal help available on request at any time, which is very comforting for someone with absolutely no background knowledge in the teaching field.
The course was easy to follow, each section laid out in clear chapters with multiple quizzes and opportunities for revision along the way.
Once submitted, I realised a file had a glitch thus cutting off some information. I emailed them immediately explaining the situation and they were happy to help, forwarding it on to my tutor.
My coursework was marked and returned in just over 24 hours – not the norm, I’m sure, but amazing when I was so nervous about the result!
There are some spelling areas in parts, ironically enough, but the depth of materials available and topics covered leaves me feeling more than capable of taking a class right now.
Definitely worth the time, money and effort! Thanks!

This course was thorough, practical and gave me the grounding i needed to start teaching.

I was particularly impressed with the easy-to-follow format of each section and how quickly I learnt using this simple online system.

Given that I didn’t have any prior knowledge, I will certainly need to study more technical grammar but this course gave me the start I needed.

The team also provided very comprehensive and constructive feedback to my final assessment.

Overall, I had a very positive experience!

Overall the LoveTEFL course prepared me to teach ESL at a great value for money. I found one minor bug which they happily fixed. The lesson plan as a final assignment was difficult for me; I think the module on making a lesson plan could use more examples. The customer service is world class and personable.

I haven’t used their job placement, nor have I started looking in earnest so I left that star rating blank.

I’d recommend LoveTEFL to anyone.

Cheers.

I completed this course in 10 days, including writing the final lesson plan and accompanying paper, working a total of 30 hours or so. The information in the course was very clear and straightforward. Writing the lesson plan at the end was good as it helped me put into practice the information I learned. The feedback was excellent: three pages of notes, encouragement and ideas for bettering my lesson plan or lesson plans in the future. I turned my final projects in on a Monday night and got feedback Thursday morning. I have not made use of the job placement yet as I already have an idea of the place I want to teach. Sadly, the online course does not include practice teaching. That is something you must provide for yourself. However, as an online course, it did very well. I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking for a fast way to obtain their TEFL.

TEFL by LOVETEFL is the most amazing I have ever seen. Everything is explained, clear, perfect tips for new teachers, material is just perfect. I had some teaching experience before taking TEFL online course and after it I feel so much better.

My fear is so small now because the course gave me a huge support and all staff …so helpful.

Thank you for your support and for so amazing opportunity to travel the world being a teacher!!!

All the best!!!

I CAN RECOMMEND LOVETEFL 120 TEFL online course!

At first, I was a bit wary of an online tefl course as some people told me that they won’t benefit me or they wont give me much experience or help, but after doing this 120 hour course, I feel that they gave me a lot of guidance to ensure I knew what the next steps were and to make things understandable for me.
I have just completed the LoveTEFL 120 hour course, and I’m very impressed by the quick and detailed feedback. I thought I would have to wait for a long time to receive feedback but it was a lot quicker!
Before embarking on the course, I had an impression that the online tefl course would be strict and set at a certain time, but when I started it, it was really flexible and they also provided a lot of further readings and websites to help me. It gave me a lot of information and the videos were really helpful.
What I really loved about this course was again, the flexibility of the course and how it gave me enough time to complete it. I also really liked the layout of the web pages as it was clear and simple to navigate through.
All in all, I really enjoyed this course and I would recommend it to my peers.

I did the 120 hour online course. I had 3 months to complete which is a good amount of time. I do feel you need to be a very self driven person to do the online course as it is a lot to take in especially if you have been out of a learning environment for a while and it can be a lot to take in. The videos are a great help throughout the course and all my questions aswell as the end of course assessment were answered and marked very quickly so not a lot of anxious waiting! Would highly recommend if you are interested in teaching English! Thanks to the lovetefl team! Can’t wait for my trip!!

I was a bit worried about which TEFL course to choose, but this one was recommended by a friend and it was definitely the right choice. I found that the way it was set out with mini quizzes set throughout was very helpful and going through everything step by step was great. Receiving feedback was also very good, along with opportunities for job offers on the website too. I found that the possible extension was a good option too if you needed it. Overall, it was a good choice and I received feedback very fast.

I just finished my 120 hours course and i can only say it was GREAT!
it is very useful as a basic tool for teaching because it shows you points of view that you probably never thought about.
As every study course there are better things than others or topic you enjoy more, here it will probably be the same but the way they set the contents and the backgrounds and the really near relation you build with your tutor will overcome everything.
I would recomend this TEFL course to everyone interested in teaching english!!

As someone with no experience teaching/planning lessons (aside from previously volunteering with an after school program for elementary school children), the 120 Hour LoveTEFL course was a terrific experience, that was well worth the cost (which is actually highly competitive). The course material was easy to follow, well structured, and had a decent amount of self-check sections and quizzes that were really helpful when it came to reviewing the material and preparing for the final assessment.

I never had to contact an instructor while I was taking the course, but I submitted my final assessment on a Monday night and received feedback by Thursday morning. I appreciate the prompt response and the amount of feedback was a surprise — almost three pages of insight on my lesson plan, which was incredible.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to jumpstart their careers teaching English as a foreign language. While I can’t comment on job placement just yet, I am signed up for an internship program through LoveTEFL that will only add to my experience. I’m excited to see what doors earning my certificate and heading to Beijing next summer will open!

I completed the 120 hour online course. I found that the course was very well structured and the site was easy to use. It covered the basics but had a good emphasis on constructing an effective lesson plan. I also liked the quizzes scattered among the different modules, if at sometimes the questions were a little odd.

I didn’t need to contact my tutor but any other communication I had with them was fast and polite. I would like however if they sent an email reminder when you are getting near the end of the course completion deadline.

I can’t comment on the job placement as I haven’t begun to look yet.

Overall, I would recommend for those looking to dip their toes in the water.

I just finished the 120hours course online and i loved it.
My work was reviewed and graded within a few days so i didn’t have to wait anxiously for the results.

As someone whose doing her Bachelors of Education within the Canadian school system there was a lot of similarities in many of the advices that were given on class management, the examples of activities that were given and so on and so forth. The only difference i found was the way a lesson is planned because you are after all teaching a class whose first language is not english. overall i would definitely recommend the course, it was very easy to navigate through the course notes, quizzes and videos. and the course assessment section is not as scary as one might think it is.

i would recommend if possible adding more videos and maybe a different example of a lesson plan (younger kids).

but the course is packed with information that i have all saved and websites that i have bookmarked.

thank you and good luck to everyone taking or thinking about taking the course :)

At first I was very sceptical of any online TEFL certificate, because I read so many articles online telling me how useless a TEFL certificate is etc. But due to the fact that most schools require a TEFL certificate, I was left with no option but to get one. After a few days of research I finally decided that LoveTEFL will be best suited to my needs. The course is very well priced and the team is prompt with responses to queries and very professional. The team consists of people who have loads of actual experience in the TEFL environment and the course is tailored to suit the needs of the classroom.

To my surprise I found the course extremely useful and filled to the brim with practical advice and step by step guidance on preparing perfect lessons. The 120-hour online programme is well paced, logically structured and easy to navigate. Videos provide you with examples of the theory in practice and each module contains links to external resources and further reading which is very helpful. Quizzes test your knowledge as you make your way through the content which helps a lot! The LoveTEFL team has really put together a course that is worth every single cent.

I am very pleased that I chose LoveTEFL as my provider and can definitely recommend them for anybody entering the TEFL industry.

I’m simply over the moon with this course.
Everywhere I looked I saw ones ranging from several hundred to over 1000 Euro… And then I stumbled upon Love TEFL.

After some research on them I decided to give them a chance, a fraction of the cost and some great reviews, I was hesitant at first expecting a catch but I was in for a pleasant surprise.

Goodness me. The course is laid out fabulously, no pompous language used or complicated terminology, it was truly fun to learn and I even learned new things along the way.

I paid a little bit extra for the fast track feedback and was amazed by how prompt it was! The feedback was extremely personal, not some copy/paste job.

From the moment I completed the first module I already started recommending this course to my friends.

DO IT!!!!!

A fantastic online course to do. A very clean and user friendly website means you are always focused on the content which you work through very smoothly in a well structured course. The regular mini quizzes are good for checking understanding of new content just learnt. The resources made available are excellent and the feedback on the lesson and supporting essay are fantastic.

A thoroughly enjoyable course which I found incredibly comfortable working through at my own pace in the time allocated.

I highly recommend the course to all looking to take a TEFL course.

I just completed the 120 hour LoveTEFL course and I loved it. The process to start it was easy. If I needed any help or was confused about the assessment tasks they were always quick to reply to my emails. The course itself was really well organised into three main sections with submodules. The content was easy to understand and included little quizzes throughout so you could checky your understanding. The videos throughout showed teaching in the classroom which helped me to see how the course content could be put in action. They also had loads of links and resources in each section. The assessment stage was clearly explained. They even had a section after the assessment giving information on how to get your first job, and how to choose where, at what kind of school etc, which was nice! Obviously when doing the online course you can’t have a tutor sitting beside you teaching you the content but the fact the team were on support via phone or email made up for this!

All the staff I’ve spoken to are really supportive and helpful and the work materials provided are clear, easy to understand and contain everything you could need.

I have finally passed after extending the course for three weeks (there is an option to extend for 1 month, 3 months and one week). I originally had about one month to complete the final section (course assessment), but I had other things crop up, and that took two weeks out of my time. Then I created my lesson plan and materials before I read the requirements lol.

As others have said the course was heavy going and I wish I had done the course differently. I would have structured the course to suit my learning style and paced it differently (I would have avoided all the quiz’s until I had finished each section or avoided them until I reached the final assessment because they were time consuming).

The final test was easier then the first three tests so do not stress. Actually I think the test is designed for everyone to pass (well that’s just my theory).

I never really contacted any of the staff only to ask about extending the course and I got a reply 24hrs later. I submitted my written work and lesson plan on a Friday. Took the test on Sunday night (11.59pm), and got my results back at ten am Monday morning (3 days).

I wish the course would have had more videos and audio, but nevertheless I am very satisfied. I would defiantly recommend, but now it’s time for me to consider if I will actually uses the skills I learnt on this course………

*sorry if there are many mistakes I am exhausted…

I completed and passed the 120h online LoveTefl course a few days ago.

In short, it is a fun and challenging course! The material was informative and insightful – at first I was thinking it was too theoretical and I would have a hard time putting the theory into practice, but as I progressed through the course my questions were answered and I had the opportunity to make my own lesson plan for the final assessment, which I found quite realistic and very, very helpful!

I found a few of the multiple choice quizzes a bit frustrating – but this could be a personal preference, regarding I learn better by doing and theory does not help me much. Overall, however, the quizzes really helped me revise the material and make sure I understood what I was been taught.

The structure of the course is very good, too. The best thing for me was the company’s support – I had a problem with submitting my materials and they were extremely helpful, I didn’t have to wait more than ten minutes to get my questions answered!

I would highly recommend this online course. It is exciting, informative and definitely value for money.

I have just completed the 120 hour online course and I found it very informative. Although heavy going at times with lots of reading, the modules broke down the content into clear sections, making it easy to follow. There are little quizzes and end of section tests all the way through which gives you a good idea of how well you are doing. The course has given me a clear idea of how to plan a lesson, and some great ideas for activities to present the content. The course also provides plenty of links to further reading on the TEFL subject.

The assessment part of the course involved completing a multiple choice question, a lesson plan and a supporting essay. The lesson plan was quite difficult to complete, as it is based on a theoretical scenario so assumptions about the students have to be made. However, this is taken into account in the marking, as long as the assumptions can be backed up with logical reasons.

I have not used the service for finding a job so can’t comment on this, however I had to give it a rating and didn’t want to unfairly give it a low score.

Overall, I enjoyed the course and found it very useful, and I’m sure it will be an invaluable help to me in the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course from start to finish. All resources provided are relevant and helpful. I enjoyed completing the test for each section which helps you gain an understanding of how much you have learnt amd also gives you a chance to go back review and ensure you know that particular section as well as you can. I was wary about completing the online course as I had never done any qualfications online before however, it was easy to navigate and was extremely informative. I have recommended this course to all my friends on my Childhood studies course and cannot wait to start teaching as a qualified tefl teacher!

I thought the course was very well presented and laid out. It had mini quizzes throughout the course to help you check your learning progress and major tests after every major section which I thought had the right balance of challenging and “do-able”. The course was very informative and I felt like I learnt everything necessary to start working as a TEFL teacher, links to further reading were included throughout the course which I think was a good way for one to expand one’s knowledge even further. Feedback from staff was prompt and useful, the mini videos of in class teaching and teacher comments were insightful. Considering the price and content I would definitely recommend this course to someone looking to start their TEFL career.

Overall I was extremely pleased with the Love TEFL course. As a mature student I was not sure what to expect, but I found the course to be comprehensive and informative. Having never undertaken any sort of teaching before I was apprehensive about the process but I managed to complete the course within the 120 hour time frame.

There was no job placement or practice teaching elements within the course so I have not commented on these. One comment would be that as I plan to teach adults it would be good to have more adult based scenarios and videos of adults in a classroom.

The end of course assessment was marked very quickly and in fact was returned to me within 2 days instead of the 7 that they advised.

I would highly recommend the Love TEFL course as being good value for money and user friendly. I now feel confident to put my new found skill to work in a classroom.

I completed the 120 hour online course, which was a perfect introduction to TEFL. I found the course to be extremely informative. My only negatives would be that I felt that I would have benefitted greatly from more emphasis on Young Learners and also one on one teaching, as most scenarios seemed to be focused on school settings. However, that is probably the most popular area for TEFL teaching….Also, I would have loved more videos of actual lessons, in full, in different situations, ages, levels etc. These could have been included in the further reading sections or even at the end of the course.

On the whole however, I am really pleased with the level of knowledge I now have. I found the course to be great value for money.The end of course assesment was marked quickly and the feedback showed real interest and care, with lots of really useful and helpful pointers. The two members of staff I had contact with were both really friendly and open. I would highly reccommend this course.

I have completed the 120 Hour course with Love TEFL. As there was no practical teaching element or job placement aspect to the course I have not reviewed these in the stars. This is my first Online course and I found it extremely good. The materials were first class and most extensive. The course was easy to navigate and the final test results and feedback came within 3 days of completion. I only needed to call the Company on one occasion with an enquiry about a practical course timing matter but I was immediately put through to speak with a tutor and the question was cleared up straight away. All in all I can highly recommend this course.

I love this course and the fact that they were there when I needed any help.
I really enjoyed the way they had test for each area so that you could keep up with what knowledge that you were learning. And they would let you know what you needed to work on unlike other companies I checked into.. it was nice to hear the feedback on your weakness and feedback on the strengths that you have so instead of having to figure out what a person needs to work, you knew exactly what area you needed more knowledge and lessons.. Any Questions they were there to help. The videos helped show examples that were needed to learn. I could not rate the Job Placement yet as I just finished the course.. but they have stayed to there word on all the other things and they have told me to contact them if I need any other help.. So my next adventure begins,.. THANKYOU>(((((HUG)))))

I found LoveTEFL through STA travel and, although I hadn’t heard of the company beforehand, I was impressed with the course. I did the 120 hour online course.

The structure of the course is simple and split into three main topics: planning a lesson, lesson content, and how to teach. The first section is thorough with information on the theory behind learning, and offers templates and examples of lesson plans for you to use. The lesson content, for me, was the hardest part of the course, as it sets out what you have to teach: grammar, vocabulary, etc. I felt this was the weakest section as my knowledge of grammar isn’t strong and they throw a lot of information in which is difficult to digest and understand. However, the course gives you a lot of links for further reading, as well as recommending books. I found the last section (before assessment) easy to go through as it is all about how to teach and was relatively straightforward to understand.

Everything on the course is easy to follow, with chances for you to reflect on what you have learnt and develop teaching ideas yourself. each section is split up into manageable chunks, so you can take your time with it and learn at your own pace. The course gives plenty of examples of activities to use and adapt – I found these very useful and spent a lot of time noting these down and making sure I’m not missing any good ideas. There are quizzes throughout which offer you a chance to assess your learning as you go, and at the end of each section is a test, which you have to pass before moving on. Although slightly daunting at first, the tests are fairly easy and you can read through your notes as you go to help you. And, if you fail it’s easy to retake!

The assessment consists of one large test, a lesson plan, and a written piece of work about the lesson plan. I feel these were challenging enough to make sure you understand the course enough to pass, but not too challenging to catch you out! The feedback for my assessments came back after 4 days which I was happy with, and the marker was positive with the feedback and gave me some good advice.

The course is available for 90 days, which worked well for me. If you need more time you can extend it, at a cost.

I did the online course so there was no classroom-based work. This wasn’t a problem for me as I already have teaching experience. However, if you are new to teaching, this may be an issue: there is only so much you can learn through reading, and standing in front of a class for the first time can be daunting. I’d recommend doing a short weekend course that is class-based on top of an online course, if you’re new to teaching.

Overall, I was happy with the course. It was easy to follow, relatively fun and gave me lots of links to further reading and resources. They give some good advice to finding EFL jobs after you complete the course, and I look forward to starting a career in TEFL. :)

I was very anxious about the course and whether I would be able to succeed however I was very wrong to ever doubt myself. The course content was amazing and had so many examples and activities for you to complete which helped you out! The end of each chapter quizs also helped out very much!

You gain a lot of support to help you with your lesson plan, end of course assessment and written assessment.

The quality of feedback is brilliant and is very thorough.

I would like to thank LOVETEFL for everything and helping me achieve my TEFL qualification.

I just completed the course, and feel I now have a much more thorough background for beginning to teach. The course was informative, well structured, and the interspersing with little quizzes kept it interactive and fun, and helped with the actual learning.

The videos were very helpful, and as one other reviewer commented, it would have been good to have a few more to illustrate teaching points throughout: it really helped to get a feel for what was being presented in a way that just reading about it can’t.

The resources at ends of sections were helpful, though I agree with someone else that some of the articles may have been a bit too advanced to be as helpful as the others; but others were terrific. And the Putting it into Practice ideas were really helpful too.

One technical place for improvement: I hope the need for multiple clicks to get from end of quiz back to lesson page can be fixed.

Lastly, the support from staff was stupendous: generously helpful, in depth answers, commentary and suggestions, whether it was to a question during the course, or commentary on an attempted lesson, or review of the assessment test. It was wonderful getting feedback on a lesson plan attempt and re-attempt incorporating that feedback, and one of the course’s most valuable learning moments for me. Thank you, Tracey and Sonia! (It would maybe be great if there could be a built-in opportunity for practice with feedback as part of the course itself.) Thank you for the course.

I enjoyed taking the Online 120 Hour TEFL course. I especially liked the links to resources that they have. For sure, I learned a lot from those links. I am also glad that the online content could be printed either on paper or as a PDF. This really helped me study, using my Android tablet. The feedback is great. I love it. I just wish that they have more resources for jobs and a job placement help. As for the TEFL internship, I also wish they have internships which are affordable. But overall, I love the program and would highly recommend it, especially for the ones who could only take this course online.

After completing the 120 hour Love TEFL course I received an medial one day later stating I had passed with an excellent mark. I could not believe that they had marked it and given me my results back in one day, great!

Overall I found the course to be quite challenging. It was very well structured and had a lot to offer, I have learnt so much! I loved the fact that there were several quizzes and tests throughout so you could check you were learning everything. I thought that there was quite a lot to learn and seemed like a lot to process, but taking it a chunk at a time made it easier. I found the end of course test and lesson plan to also be quite difficult but a great opportunity to put everything I had learnt into practice.

Overall I am so happy I chose to do the Lovetefl course as I know it will support me with my future career! Thank you LOVETEFL! :-)

Love TEFL has been a fantastic course for me, and well worth the investment. After carrying out the 120 hour course throughout summer, I have passed with a great mark (yay) and received both extensive and useful feedback which has been really useful. I’d like to thank the team (specifically Victoria and Claire) for being so efficient and helpful. I would recommend anyone to take the course, which offers great information, resources, and engaging interactive tests throughout- it’s a really motivating system, and the time really does fly when you’re completing it. Really looking forward to seeing where this takes me, and I’d encourage anyone to sign up for this qualification :)

I have recently completed 120 hours online TEFL course with LoveTEFL. The course itself was well structured and easy to follow. I liked the links to the outside resources that can help you to get started on more in depth research about the subject. I also appreciated the feedback, it was very thorough, it offered encouragement and some constructive advice. I would welcome more videos from classes as you don’t get any practice time doing an online course. Overall, however, the course was great and I would definitely recommend it.

This course was great! All the modules were broken down into sections that are very valuable for TEFL. They were in depth and had small stress free quizzes along the way to check your understanding. One of the things that really helped was the end of module review page that helped keep the content in your memory. The feedback was very helpful and comprehensive. This course also includes outside resources that are great for going into as much detail as you wish! The course makes everything so interesting, time flies by quick! I would recommend this course to anyone because it is insightful, effective, and fun.

I have just passed the 120hours TEFL course and I have to say that it is very easy, especially if you take it seriously and you dedicate some of your time . The guidance and the support of the tutor were very helpful and very professional. I realize that you don’t need to have a teacher’s background to be successful with the course, because is well structured and very straight forward.
It was a bid challenging at the end, because you have a scenario and you have to prepare your own lesson plan, but no pain no gain…right?? However, it was rewarding at the end, cause I passed.
Now I have my certificate and I can apply for a TEFL job everywhere I want.

I have completed the 120 hour online course and would highly recommend it. The course itself was really informative. The quizzes between the modules were helpful and less daunting as they were not part of the final assessment of the course but more for your benefit to check your understanding and progression and to prepare you for the multiple choice test in the final assessment.
Although there is alot of information to take in, the course is broken down into modules and I found that alot of the questions were repeated which allowed the information to sink in easily. It was also easy to navigate through the course and review any of the previous sections if you wanted to look over anything you werent to sure about.

Having finished a teaching degree I was actually surprised at the finer details of teaching EFL and at the complexity of things you need to consider for a lesson plan to be successful. Having had no experience with TEFL before I feel the course gave me the necessary tools I need to stand in front of the classroom to teach EFL with more confidence. Lots of online resources and website recommendations to help you along the way.

In regards to the final assessment, the feedback I received was very thorough and offered lots of suggestions to take on board when writing future lesson plans. The comments were also very encouraging and you can tell the tutors take their time to give you the best feedback possible.

I also found the practical videos to be really helpful as there isn’t the opportunity for practical work with it being an online course but it showed you real life scenarios and examples of using the various teaching methods taught. I feel adding more of these types of videos would be a benefit.

Last but not least a huge kudos to the LOVETEFL team who were on hand and available to help at any moment, wether it’d be an email, a phone call or even a facebook chat. They were and are always there.
I’m excited to start this teaching experience abroad and put what I learned and my new TEFL qualification into practice :)

I’ve recently completed the 120 hour online course with LoveTEFL. I found the resources very helpful. The course was laid out in an easy to follow manner and covered everything from initial lesson planning to tips for your first day in the classroom. There were many examples of activities to undertake with classes, for both beginners and more advanced learners of the language, this was very helpful as it allows you the opportunity to explore lesson planning from different levels.
The feedback provided was extremely helpful. It covered not only the good points I had included but also very constructive feedback which I will be sure to implement in the future. All in all it boosted my confidence in my ability to create a lesson plan which I had never done before.

Cost of course is fantastic – main reason i chose Love TEFL.
The support offered is also brilliant.
The feedback was fantastic and in-depth and offered advise on how my lesson plan could be improved.
It was easy to complete.

Only downfall is there are a few spelling mistakes throughout the course also it teaches us certain terminology however during the quizzes on 1 or 2 occasions the terminology was changed (words we haven’t been taught) which obviously isn’t very logical.

Other than that definitely would recommend this course!

This is the second time I have completed a TEFL course due to my previous one not being acceptable by a potential employer. I have to say that not only did it exceed my expectations but it was both surprising and refreshing to have such a friendly team available by email and phone. The material is very well structured and has obviously been compiled by experienced and thoughtful teachers who will challenge you just enough to learn new things regardless of your previous experience.
Having completed this course, I can honestly say that I feel far more confident in an ESL classroom than I did before. I spent much longer on the other course and didn’t get half as much from it.
A key thing about this course is that the final assignments are marked by a real TEFL tutor. I am impressed with the depth of the feedback which ran into three pages!! Despite my previous experience, I feel that I now have some real suggestions on how to improve as an ESL instructor.
It is accredited and recognised just as much if not more than other courses and I have no hesitation recommending it to anyone who is new to ESL.
When you have travel plans and a new life to worry about, you really do need some confidence in your English teaching ability and this will give you exactly that. It did for me.

I completed the 120-hour course and passed :) This was a really helpful introductory course, and covered all aspects of ESL teaching. The grammar review was especially helpful, as I have not taken an English course in some time. There were many ideas for games and activities. The feedback on the end-of-course lesson plan was very detailed, helpful, and encouraging. I explored all the further reading links, many of which I saved/downloaded as I would definitely be coming back to them for ideas/guidance in the future! The one thing I would have liked to see more of was video snippets of actual classroom teaching.

I would recommend this course for beginners interested in ESL teaching.

Freshly passed my 120 hours Love Tefl course and I must say that it is a good quality course for a low price! The course is well structured and every module is logical with good examples and excellent content.
The further reading sections a rich with very useful websites and references.
Great in-class videos also along the course to have a concrete understanding of the challenges of being a teacher abroad.
You can also feel that the staff is passionate about what they do and they transmit it through the course! Excellent preparation to start as a TEFL teacher.
I recommend this course. Thumbs up for Love TEFL!

I did the 120 hour course with LoveTEFL over the course of three months as I was working full time and I do not regret it at all! The course has a very clear structure with great modules. I personally really enjoyed the grammar module, which was well organised with great explanations.

I was impressed with the quality of the resources, which if you take the course, please print and save them in your folder for future lessons. Whilst the course is online, the LoveTEFL team are only a email or call away and always provide excellent support when any issues arise. The course is packed with great theory and practice videos of teachers using techniques such as drilling and concept checking questions.

The 120hour LoveTEFL course, I highly recommend! (I even learnt things thatI wasn’t taught in GCSE and A-level English :) )

I have just finished my 120 hour online course and passed. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to everyone who wants to travel abroad and teach English. I started the course during the summer holidays and went about the course at my own pace. That’s what I liked most about the course – I had 3 months to do it so I didn’t feel under pressure to get everything done in a limited amount of time. Very happy with the feedback as it means I know where I went wrong and where I can improve when making out lesson plans in the future. Can’t wait to get out there and teach English- LoveTEFL has made this happen for me!

I just completed my 120 hour online course and am very pleased with lovetefl. They have excellent customer service and a very well structured course. The materials were very clear to me and I feel well prepared to begin teaching.

When I began searching for a tefl course, I had my doubts with lovetefl because it had a low price compared to other schools, but I soon realised that there was nothing to worry about. I obviously can’t compare to other providers, but a low price doesn’t have to mean low quality :-)

If you dont log in for a while you get a kind reminder that your course is waiting for you and any doubts you may have, they are always happy to help. I always received an immediate response.

I would definitely recommend this course with LoveTefl!

I took the 120 hour TEFL course. As I am unemployed at the time, with nothing better to do than take classes all day, this course took me about five days to complete. It was very, very comprehensive and I learned much more from it than I expected to. I feel it prepared me considerably for when I take an ESL job overseas.
The course is comprised of three units with several lessons apiece, and a test at the end that includes a graded essay, a graded lesson plan, and a multiple choice test. I would say that between the course content, the quizzes and tests, and the final assessment, it was very much worth its cost. If they offer higher-level TEFL/TESOL/CETYL courses in the future, I will probably take them with LoveTEFL rather than elsewhere.

Hi, I just finished my 120 hour course and PASSED!

I am so excited. I am probably one of the older students that LoveTEFL has had, but I truly put my heart and soul into this course, because it is that important to me.

The information that I received was way more than I expected it to be. I don’t know what I really expected, but the information in the course kept me thinking and working hard. Because I worked on the online course, I would have liked to see more videos of teachers in classrooms, this is the only aspect of the course that I think was lacking. The response to questions was quick and thorough. The critique of my lesson plan and assessment of the plan was amazing! Natalie spent a huge amount of time on it, and I appreciate all of her suggestions and will apply them to my lesson.

The chapters were easy to follow, and the quizzes at the end helped to let me know what I didn’t know and what I should go back and study before moving on. I found the lesson plan to be challenging, I even thought I might ask someone to help me, but I didn’t….I did it myself, and feel so much better that I did. Now, I know how to do a lesson plan. Who knew? I never realized what teachers go through for their students, now I know. And now, I’m ready to do the same. I feel that I am equipped with what I have learned over these months to handle whatever comes my way.

I started the class while living in the Czech Republic, and didn’t have the quiet that I had when moving back to the states. I found that it was much easier for me when I could give it all of my attention. It had been many years since I had been in a class room or had the need to study, so I think that I probably found it harder than the younger students, but…the fact is that I did it, and you can too.

Don’t pass this up, if you have the opportunity to stretch you mind and your opportunities, do it! If you don’t, you’ll be sorry, because there is a wonderful world out there to explore and with this course behind me, I am ready to grab on to all that I see. Just think of how many people you can help…teaching them English can change their world, and yours too.

This course was perfect for my needs: learn about the mechanics of teaching English and receiving a 120-hour certificate. The course is well-organized, thorough in the depth and breadth of its content, and provides feedback in the online modules and tutor feedback on the course assessment. I would highly recommend this service. LOVETefl is a great small business to support.

Hi guys, I have completed the 120 hour course and thought it was very well structured, with attention to detail. The feedback was instant and the resources limitless. It is packed with lots of ideas and activities to help you plan your lessons and allows you to study at your own pace. LoveTefl are very professional and helped me immensely in looking for work abroad, if you seek a challenge, adventure or just a fresh start then this is the way forward! The opportunities are endless as to where you can go and teach plus, the idea of seeing so many cultures and working, makes it more than worth it!

I found the course really informative and helpful. Continuous guidance and help was offered the whole way along and the short assessments throughout the different sections were very useful to keep the information fresh in your mind. The videos which were available to watch which showed an actual classroom situation were very enlightening and showed the content in action.

At the end of each module there are links to other useful sites that could be used at any stage after completing the course itself.

The final elements of the course we very easy to understand and complete and the feedback was very relevant to my specific assessment. Any emails I sent to the support site were answered quickly and were very helpful.

Overall it was a great course and I would definitely recommend it.

Love TEFL provided for me a good opportunity to enter teaching English whilst also studying at university, and for an affordable price. The 120 hour online course is very well structured, easy to follow, in depth but also very challenging and engaging.
Even after the course is completed they also give you ample support and job opportunities!
I would definately recommended this course to anyone looking to teach English as a foreign language!

The 120 hour online course was very manageable in that you were allowed to work at your own pace. Once you did your bit each week, there was very little pressure.

At the end of each module there are links to several resources which I found to be very useful on all aspects of teaching. The course itself covers the basics of teaching English as a foreign language, however the outside resources are also useful by going into detail on specific aspects of teaching.

One feature I found particularly useful, were the quizzes featured throughout the course. They examined your knowledge on each section to see if you really grasped what you have just learned.

I also found the video clips to be a stimulating way to visualize how you would teach a class, I thought it would have been beneficial to have had more videos featured.

The course assessment was fairly manageable and enjoyable to compose and the feedback was almost instantaneous.

There is a great supply of useful links to articles and resources that will help throughout my TEFL experience. Finally, I want to say that the communication with the instructors was excellent! They always replied swiftly and provided good feedback!

I have just completed my online 120 hour tefl course, and i enjoyed every part of the course.

The Love Tefl team were always on call on the other side of the phone to help and assist whenever and whatever the situation, very friendly, bubbly and genuine team.

I am so happy to have completed and passed the course, the course was well structured, had a very good flow throughout and everything was balanced hence; the course assessments and knowledge bank.

Learning and studying was made easy, as chapters are all broken down in to sections and subsections, allowing you to study at your own pace and flexibility. Also there are lots of tips and guidance and elements to discover whilst doing the course. which enables you to brush up on your teaching and practical skills.

There is a lot of information and knowledge to take in, but the course is designed in a fashion to help students learn and absorb information easily and in a fun way. Also many new concepts to learn about, but again adds to your knowledge and experience. The tutors are always available to help and answer all questions, so no need to stress and go into a state of panic.

A fantastic interesting, flexible and fun course and was worth every penny.

Thank you

Love TEFL

I quite enjoyed this course, being able to study it on-line at my leisure was a huge plus. The content of the course was consistent from beginning to end in the layout and presentation. I have come to respect that there is a huge challenge to teaching the English language. Taking the quizzes helped with the section exams. I enjoyed the phonetics and Adrian Underhill’s video and app. i have downloaded quite a few of the Cambridge apps since taking this course. All in all a good experience for me.

I did the 120 hour online course and thought it and the LOVE TEFL team were absolutely brilliant. The course was excellent in terms of content, structure, links, logic, presentation and format. Ther e was someone to help whenever I needed by phone or by email. There were links to helpful suitable articles and websites that I will now use in my teaching career. The tests at the end of each section and throughout the course were invaluable. The lesson plan project was so useful and going back through the material in the course to complete it they made me realise how practical and insightful the content actually was.
The course feedback I received was swift and helpful.
These guys are not robots at the end of an email, when I needed support from them they were decent and human and I was incredibly impressed with them. Thanks again guys for being so brilliant.

It was well structured and well paced. The feedback and mini-quizzes were great so you could really track your progress and understanding as you went along – and they provide additional material at the end of each section that you can use to further your own knowledge.

The feedback on my end of course lesson plan was great.

The website layout was clear and easy to use.

Really glad i chose LoveTEFL

The 120 hour Love TEFL course I have just completed was a brilliant course. I found the information accessible, interesting, informative and challenging. The course content was very appropriate to the course and to my needs. I found the content very helpful and I really appreciated the option of the drop down menus and the intermittent quizzes which acted as revision for what was just covered.

The quizzes were very helpful because the questions were specific to the content just covered in the particular section.

I thought the templates for lesson plans were an excellent resource for creating my own assessment lesson plan and also as a great starting point for my use in the future.

This course was also very good because I could do it in my own time and spend time going back over the information as and when I needed it.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone considering doing a course.

I just completed my 120 hours TEFL course, and I am very happy with the result I achieved. The feedback I was given by my tutor Natalie was very helpful and I will definitely take it on board for when I plan future lessons. I have not looked into applying for a job yet because I am only about to start college, but i think I will take part in an internship or one of the TEFL trips to gain more experience and have a go in the classroom to see if this is definitely the right path for me. Throughout the course a lot of support is given and all the information is there that you need and in terms that is easy to understand and digest. The quizzes really help to show your progress and see where you need to improve and revise before you move on which is really helpful. The one thing I would improve is have more videos of employed TEFL teachers giving you tips on how to make it work in the classroom and how to find a job, and also maybe them explaining how they go about creating their lesson plans for the many lessons they have to teach.
Overall the course is brilliant and I would defiently recommend it to anyone who is interested in teaching English.
Thank you for all the support I was given it really helped me to complete the course to the standard I did

The course was very enjoyable. I am a self confessed defeatist and I found the course just the right amount of challenging and encouraging. The quizzes you do all the way throughout the course keep your mind focused and also encourage you as you can see you are doing well. The only bad factor of the course I found was that sometimes the little quizzes (not the end of course one) were very vague at times and it was a little frustrating when you got the answer wrong because the question wasn’t worded specifically. That was a tiny bad factor, however, other than that a very rewarding course.

There are also lots of good ideas and tips which will definitely be useful, as well as many recommendations for further study and material.

This a fantastic course to get you started! It covers pretty much everything you need to know and gives you lots of links to websites with guides, reviews, materials, and reports. My only criticism (if any) would be that the grammar module could have been a bit bigger. It was one of the ones I found most difficult and so a bit more detail/examples or links to helpful sites to help teach me would have been great. Apart from that, it’s got all you need to get you started! :)

The course is good for what it is but lacks depth. I don’t feel I could employ someone just with the Online TEFL as there is no practical experience however it does detail the basics and the course is well designed. Someone who has studied this course would be aware of the most common structures for a lesson plan – which is one of the main problems with new teachers. However without a practical element the benefit of the course is very limited. This course does not compare to a CELTA/TESOL at all and is a poor substitute however it should be enough to secure work in a high demand country and build some experience – it’s certainly better than not having studied at all.

I began the course with a slightly skewed view of what the actual work would entail. My language teaching prior to this was as a member of the Australian Immigration team looking after Vietnamese and Cambodian children. The teaching involved mainly putting stickers onto items of furniture with the name of the item in large letters, and having the students say them out loud. It worked, to the extent required.
The course I have just finished gave me a sharp reminder that teaching English is an academic matter. My start was poor as I tried to rush through, what with work and impatience. Once I knuckled down to it I began to make a lot more progress, aided by the improvement notices from LOVE staff!!
I have yet to launch as a teacher, and I view this with some trepidation, but I will have my printout material with me, and a memory of the kind treatment received.
The course offers full value, without naming anyone, the stuff on offer here in Australia was (and is) around 19 times the cost for a lower qualification, one not recognized in a lot of areas.
Thank you.

The lovely aspect of the course is the amount of encouragment you’re given throughout and the more you progress in the course the more of an exciting prospect English teaching becomes instead of the daunting task I first thought.

A smart, comprehensive and engaging course into the world of teaching. This TEFL 120 hour online course deals extensively with how to construct lesson plans for different age groups, classsroom management and types of vocabulary. These sections are detailed on the various methods which help teach pupils english. Most of what is covered relates to PCGE and enables you to teach all over the world as an option. Also the the course is helpful in gaining understanding on the role of a teacher and gain insight into what is expected of one.
The course is assessed by a professional tutor who examines your lesson plan, an essay and the resources you have made to teach a lesson.Ther is also a course final exam which tests your knowledge on the subjects.
Personally I have found this course very helpful and has made me decide to pursue a career in the teaching profession. Thank you to the TEFL staff for their support and my personal tutor for giving me this great oppurtunity.This is an excellent course which I simply cannot recommend enough for anyone interested in the teaching profession.

I did the 120 hour on-line TEFL course and I thought it was great. Well planned out, definitely enough time to do it and actually learn it all off. The course assessment aims at checking the actual useful stuff instead of those little theoretical things that you will never use in your teaching career. The feedback I got was very thorough and you could see that the tutor has actually read the essay and the lesson plan, which is great. The content of the course is just what it should be. There is a lot of information, game/activity suggestions and videos which all help you take the knowledge in and understand it. LoveTEFL support system also works great. They e-mails are replied to immediately and they give a detailed answer to every question. I am very satisfied with the LoveTEFL course and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone wishing to teach English abroad.

An excellent TEFL company, the training itself was clearly structured and easy to follow. It went into great detail with a wealth of further reading to explore designated at the end of each section.
The addition of videos gave a sense of immersion which gave real-life application to the materials being studied.
By the time I took the final graded assignments I felt fully prepared to do so. The instructor feedback was very useful and informative.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this company.

Love TEFL is a small enough company to make you feel like you have individual and personalized support whenever you need it but also big enough that it gets you all the necessary tips and resources. The pace of the course was great. The course focused a lot on planning giving lots of useful tools for making a lesson plan. It was also great that it provided ample tips for different age groups. I found the material very relevant to actual classroom experience and there were enough references for outside source to read up in case you want to get a more in depth understanding of a particular aspect of ESL teaching.

Absolutely fantastic course. I seen alot of TEFL courses out there and this seemed to have great reviews so I decided to hand over my hard earned cash and finally get TEFL certified. Best money I ever spent. The tutors were great and always willing to help. The course content was extremity relevant and i’m sure will stand me in good stead when I get my first TEFL job (fingers crossed). So if you are thinking of doing a TEFL course I cannot recommend LOVE-TELF enough.

I undertook the 120 hours online LoveTefl course.

The positives:
The course is flexible and works around your commitments – e.g. I did it during my final year at uni so I did not have to worry about being at a certain place for a lesson.
Manageable course structure that is not overwhelming
Regular quizzes to clarify knowledge
Links to wider resources that will be useful beyond the course e.g. lesson planning tips, teaching methods etc
Helpdesk team generally responded very quickly to queries e.g. a link was broken for one of the wider readings but this was resolved in less than a couple of hours
The wider reading is not forced – some of it is quite dense but that will only be a problem depending on whether you are interested or not. For me it was a good opportunity to explore certain concepts or wider issues in greater detail – which can make up for the less practical elements of the course.
Course covers everything from reading, writing, speaking and listening and finishes with a useful guide to finding a job.
Lovetefl run quite a lot of Tefl roles abroad so the chance of practical experience after a mostly theoretical course is helpful
The lovetefl team also does a conga dance for every successful candidate (which is quite unique).

Negatives:
You do not get any real classroom experience, which may be a problem for some
Since the course is flexible, you have to be quite committed in setting time aside for course (can be difficult for some)
You don’t really have any peers to work with or discuss ideas
The long distance aspect of the course can make it appear slightly impersonal – but I found the team very friendly so that was not an issue for me.

I have just completed and passed the 120 Hour Online course at Love TEFL and I have to say that I am 100% satisfied with the whole course.
I am actually a Secondary School Teacher in Mauritius and wasn’t easy for me as while reaching the end of the course, it was exam time at school! I had to prepare exam papers for the school and correct them. Quite a lot to do. But the time frame given by Love TEFL is great and I managed to complete it.
The contents were so interesting not only for TEFL classes but also for my actual job. I even started implementing some rules at school.
I wish to thank this wonderful organisation for giving this worldwide opportunity and also for their help and support.

I completed the 120 hour online course. I had previously started another TEFL course through another site which I ended up not completing due to lack of motivation and support from the tutor. I found Love TEFL to be extremely clear to follow and they always offered me support when needed.

There is a lot of content to cover but with correct time management it’s very easy to complete the course in three months. The course also offers extensions which is also helpful.

Overall great course!

Having just completed, and passed my TEFL 120 hour online course, all I can say is, wow!, Love TEFL are a fantastic organisation to do the qualification with.

From enrollment to getting my results, the communication, expertise and professionalism has been second to none. The course was much more in-depth and thorough than I had anticipated, but once I got into it, it was really hard to log off!

The modules were well laid out and informative and the practice quizzes were a great way to test knowledge as you go. The further reading links were invaluable in really getting a grip with particular topics and helped with the end of module quizzes and the course assessment test.

The fact you can dip in and out of the course, works really well for those who have other commitments such as full time work, and the options to extend the course were reasonable priced should you need to do so.

The course assessment consisted of a test,and the submission of a sample lesson plan and supporting essay. The test was again thorough, and really got you thinking about the things you’d learned. The sample lesson plan was a lot harder than it looked, as you have to take the stabilisers off and think like a teacher!

I opted for express marking and was shocked at how quickly I received my results- less than 24 hours! Again, the communication was quick and professional from my tutor. Any questions or problems were dealt with quickly from the support staff, and the whole journey has been hard work but very, very rewarding.

I really would highly recommend Love TEFL to anyone who is thinking of doing the qualification. Now that I’m qualified, I’m looking forward to working with them to secure a job somewhere abroad very soon!

*NB: Practice teaching and job placement haven’t been starred as I’ve not had the opportunity yet to undertake teaching practice and/or job placement*

Review by Vasantha Khublall (USA) – July 27, 2014

I must say the TEFL course conducted by the Love-TEFL Institute in Leeds, England was very well structured and methodically laid out with clear explanations, which made it a pleasurable experience to complete.
The quizzes in the various chapters leading up to the end-test were well prepared and provided good practice, which in retrospect was indeed very necessary.

The valuable comments and feedback pertaining to the final sample lesson plan as well as the supporting essay conveyed by the tutor who marked and evaluated both these submissions, were very professionally done and were indeed appreciated, coming as they did from someone who was obviously extremely experienced in the field.

I shall certainly recommend the Love-TEFL Institute in Leeds to others I may encounter who would be interested in doing a TEFL course.
In fact I registered to do the course in early June this year on the recommendation of an acquaintance here who had just completed it himself. I realize that recommendations passed on by students – past and present – are the best and most authentic advertisement.

All the employees at Love-TEFL i.e. tutors as well as administrative staff work very hard and sincerely to help the students and reply immediately to email queries sent. That degree of customer service is rather rare to find these days !

My thanks to everyone at the LoveTEFL Institute in Leeds once again for the welcome encouragement, help and support I received right from the first day when I wrote to enquire about the course and all the way through till the end.

It does make a tremendous difference to know that sincere and genuine help is at hand whenever one is in need of the same and that prompt replies can always be expected.

Last but not least, having made a general comparison of prices over a period of time, I found that for the quality of both the syllabus and all round service offered, the cost of the Love-TEFL course was most reasonable.

Can’t stress how much support & information this company have given me and my partner. From conversations about the teaching process to integrating into Thailand culture. I was dubious at first about the whole process but after completing the course I only have good feedback. If you want a company that offers you the following:
- transparent costings
- support in all areas
- guidance and decent feedback
Then this course with this company is for you.

I found this course to be excellent. I’m usually an ‘in class’ type of student and wasn’t sure how the online course would work for me. I was pleasantly surprised.

I found the course to be well structured. The sections were very informative and were chunked down into modules which made learning easier for me.

I liked the ongoing quizzes and end of each section test. This helped keep me focussed and gave me the opportunity to review parts I wasn’t quite sure about. These were aimed at being supportive and helping with the learning process rather than designed to trip students up!

The inclusion of a variety of videos were very helpful to observe real situations.

The LoveTEFL team are very supportive.

I’m looking forward to the Thai Internship starting on 31st October to put the TEFL course into practice.

All of the staff I have communicated with have been fantastic. Very friendly and prompt with their responses. The online TEFL was great as it was broken down into digestible sections.The content was both thorough and relative. For an online company they have a personal approach which you sometimes do not get when dealing with online companies. I am due to work abroad via LoveTEFL so I hope this high level of service continues. I would recommend LoveTEFL to anyone looking for an online certificate, especially when it is at the discounted price.

Thank you so much LOVE TEFL team for the help you all extended across the course duration. Taking the course was an amazing experience in itself. It was very well organised and the lessons were coordinated and arranged so nicely. Though time was an issue with me since I work full time but the easiness of the course and its structured pattern helped me through easily. And honestly, this course has opened my eyes to the world of teaching English and how I thought it was different.

Thank you once again.

When considering which online TEFL course to complete I made sure to have a good look at what was available. I founded that many courses charged an unreasonable amount of money for a computer based course. I found that LoveTEFL had a reasonable price and I’m really glad I chose that course. The course has a great structure, the mini tests were helpful and the course was really enjoyable. Love TEFL had a lot of great online resources for learners to access which I feel will be useful throughout a TEFL career. I would like to see some more example of teaching on the course as I felt this aspect was a bit lacking. Other than that a really worthwhile course that will give you the basic knowledge of how to teach a variety I ages.

I enrolled in the course having almost completed one school year as an English Language Assistant in Catalonia. Having found a job teaching in an academy from September I felt I needed a TEFL certificate for my own piece of mind and to get ideas and advice to prepare me for my new job.
The course content is thorough and you can tell that it has been composed by people a lot of experience in the field. The course is easy to follow and I completed it while still working, it is easy to be productive and advance once you get started. I feel the course has helped me think more about planning classes and the best way to do so, things to consider etc. There is lots of room for independent thinking which is great because you need to be creative and have ideas when teaching English.
The course assessment will require effort and a lot of work but so will yourr job so start as you intend to go on!!

I found the lovetefl 120 hour online course to be a well rounded and very comprehensive course. I decided to do an online tefl course as it meant I could study around other commitments. The course content is very detailed and all aspects of tefl teaching are included. The detail of the course notes I found to be excellent. I have printed off my notes and there are excellent examples and activities which can be used in a practical way within any classroom. It does take 120 hours to complete the course but this course is well worth it. I completed my course and I received confirmation that I had passed the course within two days of my final submission. The feedback I received was excellent and very detailed. Although the course is tough going it needs to be and I enjoyed it very much. I would recommend the lovetefl course to anyone considering a career in tefl teaching. The only reason for not completing the placement rating is simply because it did not apply in my case. I have only great things to say about the course and the follow up feedback.

They have also included added materials and resources which is great! The staff are always available and very prompt to reply to emails. The feedback and review I received for the quizzes and final assignment shows that the people at LoveTEFL are actually very supportive of the participants. Overall, I am very happy I took my tefl here!

I just completed my 120 hour online coures and I am thrilled with wealth of knowledge I now have re teaching English as a foreign language. I am currently living and working in Japan as an Assistant Language Teacher and I couldn’t have chosen a better time to equip myself with the know-how to effectively plan and conduct my lessons. Thanks 100% to LoveTEFL online course for the intense and detailed course package that in the end makes you feel ready and confident to function effectively in the classroom, no matter where in the world you are. The course covered a wide array of areas including but certainly not limited to: creating an effective lesson plan, identifying learner styles, class room management and a treasure trove of classroom activities that can be used for teaching the different skills (reading, listening, writing, speaking).
What is most amazing is that, when I started my new job as an ALT, there were so many things I didn’t know in terms how to effectively prepare for and conduct my lessons and classroom management, just to name a few short coming; but the minute I started the LoveTEFL course, I realized I have found the solution to my problems. From very early in the course, I began to feel my confidence soaring in the classroom and my students becoming more and more entheusiastic about learning English. Thats all because I started to apply the knowledge garnered from the LoveTEFL course materials as I progress from section to section.
I must admit the course was intense and took alot of committment but it is well worth the effort. The course materials requires a lot of reading, but thats what will provide you with the important information that you paid for in in the first place. I therefore assure everyone who is considering to do the course to take the challenge and let LoveTEFL equip you with the right information and training to become competent teachers of English as a foreign language. I am very happy that I chose LoveTEFL to get my certification to move on to the next stage of my teaching career. I am more than satisfied with the new me in the classroom, thanks to LoveTEFL.

I manage to complete the 120hr online course in under 2 weeks, definitely easy enough to complete during if youre doing university at the same time (which I was worried about as I needed to complete this before August- the Korea EPIK application time).

Overall I felt that it was really eye opening, I never realized that this was what teachers had to do. This course is really useful and taught me the basics of planning a lesson and how to teach English in a foreign country

The layout of the course was easy to follow, they had lots of useful mini quizzes after each section (which I thought was going to be stressful, but they weren’t too difficult if you read the entire page’s content first), email support is relatively quick (within a day), reallllllllllllly positive and useful feedback on my end of course assessment (don’t stress too much about the 1000-1500 essay- it doesnt have to be very formal).

The only reason I’m giving an overall 4 stars is because I feel there could be more content and videos of actual lessons for different age groups and scenarios. But definitely a worthwhile course, especially at their sale price.

I completed the online course (120 hours) whilst staying in a hotel in Dogubeyazit, Turkey. I was on my way across Eurasia with the intention of teaching when I got to China.

Overall the course was great.

I had a few minor issues with one or two specific examples in the course and also I think some of the end of topic test questions (these don’t count towards your final mark) were irrelevant or not covered in the topic learnt.

Also, the first section and test were, in my opinion, too detailed, unnecessarily difficult and off-putting – about the different levels of student.
Fortunately, I perservered and by the time I had completed the course it was all a great learning experience.

I have been to university in England and have taught overseas before but, even I learned a lot from this course and came away with some great new ideas.

Also, the course has lots of links throughout to examples and reference material that the user can refer to at the time of studying, or later.

The course tutors really are just an email away to answer any questions.
The end of course multi choice test (the one that counts towards your final score) is straight forward and focussed on the important/main points covered in the course.

Overall, a little frustrating occassionally, but definitely worth it in the end.

I would highly recommend LoveTEFL to anyone looking to do a TEFL course.

The 120 hour TEFL is a comprehensive well structured course, that really does take 120 hours to complete if done properly, although it would be possible to complete all the stages quicker. Some of the quiz questions were a little ambiguous. I think a some may struggle with the quiz questions even if they understand the subject.

Only negative comment is that I did not receive a certificate after passing the course. 13 days still waiting……

Overall I was very pleased with the course. What I loved most about LoveTEFL is how supportive they are throughout the course with any questions and problems I had. They really couldn’t have done enough for me.
They also held an open day about an hour away from where I live and I got the chance to meet the owner and another person from LoveTEFL such nice people and the open day was a great idea where people got to ask lots of questions and the talk put on by LoveTEFL was very informative.

Like any online course I’d imagine there is lots of reading so just prepare for that but they keep it interesting throughout.

I just finished and passed the 120 Tefl course.
It was an amazing course where I learned a lot and gave me more confidence on how to plan my lesson.
I would love to start teaching and I hope to put into practice what I have learned.
The feedback given at the end of this course was really detailed and helped me to understand even more all the parts of my lesson plan.
I highly recommend this course if you really want to be a Tefl teacher.
Thank you to all the staff who supported me!!!!

I did the 120 hour online course so some of the star ratings don’t apply. This was the first time that I had studied in years and I found it a very pleasant experience. The course is very well designed, modules are arranged in a logical sequence and there were some very nice touches, such as encouraging emails from Love TEFL sfter completion of various modules. I was dreading the end of course exam, as you only get one stab at it, but I have to say that if you put the work in that there are no surprises in it.
One small caveat is that the large amount of useful additional reading suggested will take you over the 120 hour mark, but it is all relevant and fleshes out what has just been presented in a very useful manner.

I did the 120 hour online course and It’s a very impressive course structure and it allows you to do it in your own time . It gives you wonderful flexibility to put into practice everything you’ve learnt . The context is explained in a really logical way and it allows you to grow into the course and learn effectively . The price is also fantastic . An overall wonderful package , and a fantastic decision in hindsight. Hopefully I can put this to good use in China now .

I’ve just done 120 hours LoveToefl course. I highly recommend you to take LoveToel course. The course is really satisfied for English teacher candidates in learning the methodology how to teach English language. The best way I liked that LoveToefl taught me how to deal with class management. Not only by planning a lesson such as learning how to deal with capacity, age, level of the class you are supposed to be teaching with all the suitable materials and activities, but also learning how to deal with timing which is supposed to be proper for the class you are teaching. Also taking LoveToefl course will enable you to understand the importance of class where, how and when you would be teaching. Thanks a lot to LoveToefl team, company and special thanks to my kind and patient guide Tracy who supported me with all the instructions I needed..

I recently completed the online 120 hours course. The material was clear, well written and divided into manageable chunks that meant I could fit it around my job. The tests during and at the end of each section are very helpful and useful indicators of progress. The resources provided at the end of each section are links to extra material that I found helpful when writing the lesson plan. The end of course assignment really gets you thinking about planning lessons for real and offers the chance to engage with the course material as well as adding your own ideas. Would definitely recommend!

I utilized the online course offered by LoveTEFL and must say it is a quality course. The lessons were structured in a simple manner that allowed one to work through at their own pace and all the the information as well as the additional resources were excellent and prove very useful for future use. Some of the lesson were challenging, others seemed tedious but necessary none the less and for this I am glad. The written task was a good look into the process essential to organize ones thoughts before entering a classroom and the final exam was broad and relatively easy. The feedback given at the end of the course is my reason for writing this review. I feared that due to the mechanical nature of grading the feedback would be just as bare but I was wrong. I received personalized feedback in great detail about the things I’ve done well and the the things I could have done better. Beverly Hawman was my tutors name and she was fantastic. I highly recommend this course. Cheers!

To whom it may concern,
I am writing in order to provide you with my opinion on this matter.
All in all I think that this course is very good and it gave me very good insight in this matter. It learned me how to create a lesson plan and provide me with lot of technical information about how teaching looks in practice, especially was interesting to see videos about work of other teachers.
I would of course recommend this course cause it has a lot of resourceful material and great ideas.

The course was perfectly setout and the end of module tests really helped to see if you understood what you learnt. The staff were quick in answering and helping via email.

I did the 120 hour online course as I already have practical experience of teaching.

I was really impressed with the depth of the course material; It was really informative and I found the videos provided great as reading through notes and carrying out tasks is good but seeing teaching in practise helped to contextualise it all.

The tests throughout the modules were good as it enabled me to gage by understanding and which areas I needed more work on so that I could go back to this and revise more.

Overall I really enjoyed it.

I have just completed the 120 hour online course and found it informative, well laid out and highly enjoyable. I have had previous experience teaching and wish I had done this course first, it’s excellent at getting you to think along the right lines when teaching. It also provides you with numerous links to articles, websites, teaching resources and books to help you improve your teaching practice well beyond this course. The course itself also explains things clearly, the module lay out logical its progression, and the staff themselves professional, friendly and helpful. The feedback I received for the written assessment was also very detailed.

The course was obviously put together by people that have a passion for what they are doing, with an element of humour weaved throughout that made even the drier aspects of TEFL enjoyable. I was very surprised how much I learnt from this course, far more than I expected to learn. All in all I cannot recommend it enough!

LoveTEFL offers a wide range of internships as well as online courses. I have passed an online course and it was very helpful to me. The course is full of quizzes and videos with lesson extracts and interviews. At the end of the course you are able to write a lesson plan and perform a lesson effectively. The course is suitable for non-native speakers (I am Ukrainian). The material was clear and easy to understand.

I would highly recommend the Love Tefl course. The course is easy to follow, both the content and layout is excellent! I contacted members of the Love Tefl team on various occasions and everyone was really helpful. The online chat box on their website is great addition, as you’re able to get answers straight away from members of staff, its also great that its avaliable after 5pm.

I work full time and found the course manageable to complete within 3 months. This was because of the excellent course material and example lesson plans provided.

The tutor feedback was also really useful and the express marking option is another great addition to the course. My tutor was extremely quick at marking my assessment over a bank holiday weekend!

If you’re looking for a reliable Tefl provider, chose Love Tefl!!

The course was exactly what I expected, a good course with substantial material to assist any level of teacher (although material appeared to be more so aimed at young learners).

The extra reading material provided was very good for going above and beyond in each part of the course.

The assessments throughout helped to give a good understanding of your current level and remind you of areas you struggled. The end of course test was also a good length and the requirements were reasonable.

overall a great course, did not have much contact with tutors as it wasn’t needed (course very self explanatory).

This IS NOT a celta, however is a great start and an ideal 1st course for any TEFL beginner

It’s tough taking an online course. You have to self-motivate. No where is this truer at LoveTEFL. However, if you can manage to grapple with the concepts in your own time, it actually turns out to be a pretty good course. The core modules gave you the basic, down to earth, knowledge you need to face the classroom. After each module, there are links to many other white papers, websites, and institutions with supplemental material. A lot — and I mean A LOT — is linked to U.K. materials (think BBC). You might consider whether it is adequate for those who want to teach American English. I’m not saying it makes a difference, but it may lean you in favor of another course.

There are quizes at numerous places. They are great recaps and really make you face the realities of what you do and don’t know. For me, it was the different verb forms (past perfect continuous????). But the module had all that information in one succinct chapter.

If you’re a fast reader, you may end up getting through the modules in less than 120 hours. This isn’t a course sitting through hours of video. It’s primarily text-based and you read and take quizes. Videos are interspersed throughout, which breaks up the material a little bit.

If you get during one of their discount periods (99 pounds for the course!), the course is a steal. Translates to about $170 in american dollars. Dirt cheap. So you can’t beat that. I’d recommend it.

I really liked the course and enjoyed. I am really into teaching now and so happy I did the course. I am planning to change career and become a teacher after this course, so I am so pleased I did study it. I definitely recommed the course for those people who would like to try teaching like me, because it is a great course to do as you get a good grasp by the end of teaching methods and how to plan a lesson. I feel much more confident now, after the course even though I have a language degree, I never taught anyone before. I hope my comment motivates people and go for TEFL.

All the best,

Angeles

I have just completed the online 120 hour loveTEFL course, and I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed the process. The layout of the course was fantastic. It was easy to read and the support throughout the process was second to none.

Throughout the loveTEFL course you are tested on your knowledge by completing quizzes, and this is so helpful, it seems informal, making you feel relaxed and not under pressure.

The staff at loveTEFL are competent and super accommodating. I could have not asked for a more supporting company to do my TEFL course with and would 100% recommend them to anyone who is looking to teach abroad.

I am looking forward to continuing my journey with loveTEFL and I hope that others sign up to learn with them too!

Thank you loveTEFL!

This course was a lot better than I was expecting. I think it was a major factor in me getting the job that I wanted. It is very well known and respected out there (job market).
I enjoyed the course and as an already qualified teacher I found it’s content very relevant and easy to understand.
The lesson plan modules are excellent in describing the basics and they give a lot of examples.
The module tests that assess you as you go along are a very good indicator of how you are doing in the course and aren’t that hard that they put you off it.

I have just completed the 120 hour online course. I must say as a student who already holds a degree and a PGCE i found the material engaging, the sections were laid out well with appropriate breaks/tests to allow myself to check my progress, re – read sections if needed and make notes.

It was laid out well and easy to follow, my work was marked quickly and the feedback was very good with comments allowing me to assess any mistakes i may have made in my lesson plan and to change this to prepare myself for my placement/internship.

Very happy overall and enjoyed the learning experience.

I just completed the 120 hour online course and I have successfully passed. I am very impressed by the support by the staff and they are always there when you need help. The informative layout of the course. Every module is very helpful and informative and really useful for teaching. Quizzes at end of each module are not only interesting but help prepare you for final course test. The staff are very nice and helpful and responds well to emails. The lesson plan is most intensive part of the course and great suggestions are given by staff which is very helpful when trying to improve your plan. This course will be very helpful in future teaching and I would recommend this course very much.

I have just completed the 120 hours online course hence I have not rated the practice teaching and job placement. The course is structured well and the quizzes are very useful. It provides for reinforcement of the content. The course provides lots of ideas for practical teaching. The content is also laid out in an interesting and easy to read manner which makes you want to learn. I have not started applying for jobs as yet so that is step two. The instructors and persons who I have spoken to at LoveTefl have also been vey helpful and friendly which makes all the difference when doing long distance learning. Thank you :-).

I’m very glad to have chosen LoveTEFL for my TEFL certification. The course was very well organized, with a lot of quizzes, videos, online resources, testimonials, and plenty of material to study/understand how to teach (to young children, teenagers and adults) and planning the perfect lessons.
The content of the course was so well put together that I not even had to ask anything to the course instructor, but for the good feedback and speed that everyone involved in this company always answered my administrative related questions, I assume that the instructor should also be as competent and diligent.
I also applied to an internship in Cambodia with this company (starting in September 2014), and for the information I have from other students and the school I will be working, it also seems very well organized, right in the “middle of action” (in one of the major countries with higher demand for English teachers), with plenty of time (3 months) to watch and be seen teaching students.
This is a school that although it seems it doesn’t have as much reputation as others in the market, I think it will be just a matter of time to gain that same reputation. I will recommend this school to whoever’s interested in taking his TEFL certification and do an internship abroad to improve their teaching skills.

I took the 120 hour course and I highly suggest taking it if you’re looking to earn a TEFL certificate quickly at low-cost. They were running a special for 99 Euros for the course which is as cheap as it gets for TEFL. I finished it within a month because there was not as much content as I expected, but this was a good thing in my opinion.
I thought the lessons were very clear and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I actually learned. Definitely take notes because the tests are based on exactly what you read, but you have several chances to take each test and quiz. The only thing they didn’t have was actual teaching experience– but seeing as it is an online course, I did not expect that anyways.
An in-person course is at least $1,500– so unless you are pursuing teaching as a life-long career, I think this course is perfect for beginner positions. Each teaching job is a challenge no matter what anyways.
I was scared to buy a course like this online but I am truly impressed with all aspects of this course! The only reason I put 4 stars for job placement was I did not use that option.

I signed up for LoveTEFL’s China Internship program late last year, which includes the 120 Hour Online Course as part of the package. Straight away I was really impressed by the LoveTEFL team, who were fantastic with their initial communications and put my mind at ease during a slightly stressful time; after all, I was deciding to leave my job and take a leap into the unknown!

Within minutes of signing up and putting the phone down I received a series of emails with all sorts of info, including my access details for the online course, meaning that I could access everything I needed instantly to begin the journey. After starting the course it took me approximately 5-6 weeks to complete, in and around my other day to day commitments.

The course itself was great because it delivers some really useful, interesting and informative content in a series of sections and units that make it easy to digest, and also provides tonnes of links and references to further reading at every step of the way. The content begins with relevant history relating to teaching and explanations of general concepts and then goes on to cover everything from classroom management to the specifics of grammar. What could of been a really daunting experience was made really manageable by its easy to use structure, and regular test sections make sure you’re on track.

If I were pushed to make a slight criticism of the course then one thing I would mention would relate to some of the multiple choice questions in the course. The majority of these sections were fine but from time to time some questions seemed to lead you to the correct answers in a more obvious manner than others.

Overall the course gave me a great grounding and I found myself both prepared (as much as I could be!) and excited for the adventure ahead. As mentioned, I signed up to the China Internship program and as I sit here writing I’m currently over 3 months into my teaching placement. It’s been incredible so far and I can’t thank LoveTEFL enough for the continued support over the whole experience. One thing I’ll say to anyone signing up to the online course is that, in reality, in the most positive sense there’s many aspects of teaching abroad that no such course could ever prepare you for, no matter how comprehensive. You have to throw yourself in and learn practically as you go, through the highs and the lows! The online course is a gateway into this experience; you won’t emerge from your 120 Hours as a fully capable and competent English teacher. However, you will emerge bursting with information, ideas and inspiration – this coupled with a qualification recognised worldwide and tonnes of help and support every step of the way from LoveTEFL will give you everything you need to start an incredible adventure.

Overall I can’t recommend this course and the LoveTEFL experience enough!

I completed the 120hr online course (why I have not rated practice teaching and job placement) and found to be a very good course. A wide range of topics were covered and frequent tests throughout allows you to evaluate your own learning. As part of the deal I purchased I also received ebooks on warmers and coolers, grammar, career development and finding work which will be very helpful. Detailed feedback was provided quickly on the submitted lesson plan and online assessment.
