Excellent tutor – Rosanna McTigue. Course taught very clearly. Flowed really well. Very high standard. Course materials good. Obviously a very genuine, sincere and enthusiastic company. Nice small group. The most useful thing was the videos which gave a real feel of a real class, and a sense of how things work in reality. Would have maybe liked more of these and/or some film of lovetefl teachers in action!

Did find it a little difficult to do a good job of the lesson plan and final teaching practice in the time given though, as I’d taken in so much information over the two days my brain was overloaded. I would have done a much better job with more preparation time I think. Felt a bit rushed? Very pleased I passed though, and would highly recommend the course and Lovetefl to anyone, and will! Nice venue too, very pleasant and conducive. A great course to do.

N.B. Job Placement section not applicable as yet!

I did the LoveTEFL intensive course this weekend, and I would definitely recommend it!!

The course was run by Sue, who was very friendly, enthusiastic, clear knowledgeable and great fun to learn from. She has been teaching English for many years, with a variety of students at different ages and abilities, so it was great to hear about her experiences and advice.

Even though we didn’t stick to the timetable given at the start (times mostly), I felt that the course structure was good, and ran smoothly. We were meant to have more breaks than we did, but as there was a lot to learn (and I was keen to understand it!) I really didn’t mind skipping some.

I never thought I would stand up and sing a song in front of a room of strangers, but as it was a very friendly atmosphere I surprised myself and did it! This is just one of the many teaching techniques we were shown. I did feel rushed with the lesson plan for the practical teaching section, so I do not feel that I did as well as I could have done. But either way it was a good insight into the importance of lesson planning, and there was time to reflect on my strengths and weaknesses, so I knew how it could have been improved.

I went away feeling pretty good about the course overall! I was a bit unsure and nervous about whether I was cut out to teach at all, but this weekend definitely proved me wrong!! I actually feel that I CAN do it, and the course was packed of really useful information that will help me all the way.

I am not doing a “job placement”, but I am aware that LoveTEFL offer job packages to China and Thailand. They do offer plenty of advice and encouragement on finding jobs, and the different places you could work, and will answer any question you have to the best of their ability. Even though the course is finished I feel that they are still there if I need them for further advice.

Thank you LoveTEFL, I really had a great time. Japan here I come!!!

I did the LoveTefl course six months ago, the 120hour online course. The materials were fantasic although some were really heavy going, and tough to read.
Some of the videos were really helpful, however I would have prefered to have some actual videos showing games and also teachers, giving lessons.
Rachael was really helpful always willing to answer any questions I had,
My job placement is not what I was expecting, I love living in Chongqing and teaching the little kids is amazing. There will never be enough material or information to help you in your classes, because each one is different from your first nerve wracking, to everyone after, they are always different, as no class is the same. You are always finding new ways to become better and learning from doing.
LoveTefl is a fantastic start and a great base to work from, the staff are very commited and dedicated to helping you, I can’t recommend them enough.

I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges presented in completing
this on line course. Any problems I had with it were quickly
overcome with the helpful quidance of my tutor.

Some of the reading material was perhaps too theoretical but as time
went by I became more confident in filtering out what was more relevant to the area of teaching I am more likely to be concentrating on.

Some of the multiple choice tests were particularly frustrating but as
already stated I learnt how to deal with presenting the answers . in my case I would have only taken up computor skills latterly , hence that could have been one reason for some of my difficulties and not having a very fast internet service in this area at the time.

I look forward to being able to use my qualifications in the future.

This review is with regards to the 120 hours online course.
This is a highly engaging, informative and insightful course. The online structure of the course is brilliantly formatted and the layout is such that topics are easy to re-read and re-locate (to come back areas that need greater focus/understanding).
My engagement for each of the modules was maintained throughout as information was broken down into manageable portions and quick tests throughout the course helped reinforce- which further aided understanding of topics covered.
I took this course to gauge an insight into what teaching English as a Foreign language would involve and it certainly provided me with such facts and various bit of interesting information.
I would highly recommend this course to others as I am very happy to have had the opportunity to achieve a certificate in TEFL. I just hope now that through this course I can achieve my ambition of going to teach English as a foreign language.

I have just recently completed the on line Lovetefl course and completed the practical week end in January.
I am a very mature student who unexpectedly finds herself living in the Middle East and is eager for new direction. This coming after many years working in the health service!
I found the material engaging, interesting and fun. The compilers of the course content obviously have a sense of fun and this comes across loud and clear.It permeates the tone of the written content and this in turn translates into a more enjoyable format. I found myself eagerly awaiting the next test review.
I did have trouble with one or two of these review ‘correct answers”, as I felt that there should have been room for a little latitude as both answers could have been correct.
I also had difficulty with the phonetic alphabet although this was probably because I do not speak Oxford english. My Irish ear could not decipher some nuances.
All in all I would not hesitate in recommending this course to my friends.
I do have a job offer and I am keen to study further.

I have just completed the online 120 hour course and am in the process of looking for a job placement, hence the no rating.

I found the course extremely informative and very well structured. Everything seemed to flow perfectly and all the literature and materials were very relevant and helpful.

A slight criticism would be that some of the articles were a little heavy going and I sometimes found these a bit daunting but it was obvious that Love Tefl had tried to keep it as varied as possible integrating videos and quizzes.

The support from the company is excellent and very personal, if I ever needed to ask any questions or had any queries I didn’t hesitate to ask, knowing that whoever I spoke to I would get as much help as possible.

In summary, I would and have recommended this course to friends and am excited to see what opportunities having this qualification may bring.

If I had to describe my overall experience with Love TEFL in simply a few words, I would say: Exciting, pro-active, and constant. The course itself offered great preparation regarding lesson planning and refreshing the simpler things such as adjectives, pronouns, and so forth. However, after having taught I would like to suggest that the course offers a practical element including improvisation. I have found that no matter how well you plan, improvisation organically happens. You can predict your lesson, but you cannot predict your class. It would have been largely beneficial to meet up with the company as part of the course face-to-face for some ‘on the spot’ practice/guidance. Since arriving in China, although there were a lot of issues with the orientation schedule which I want to stress was not to the fault of the company but mere circumstance, the in country members such as Graham, and Gordon (when he was here) have been beyond fantastic. I have experienced a lot of issues with my school regarding transport, communication, and resource, and Love TEFL have been brilliant in getting me through the hard part. If it wasn’t for the support I have received in the last couple of weeks, I would have been on the first flight home. I’m uncertain regarding the relationship between Love TEFL and IES global and I am wondering if this internship could be made stronger by Love TEFL going it alone. I had been promised several things on coming to China, such as having another intern at my school which has not happened and left me feeling somewhat isolated. Everyone is blaming everyone else and I am not sure who is at fault here. The reason I mention this is because Love TEFL have been so clear on everything else, and I feel that the relationship with IES clouds what the company are striving to achieve.

I applied for the 2013 China internship, and currently am teaching at a primary school in Zhongshan, Guangdong Province until next January.

First things first, you simply can’t beat the price of this internship. While you do have to pay for your own flight and visa application, after those initial investments, you pay next to nothing for your entire stay. During orientation, the hotels and meals were all paid for, as well as transportation. Once you are assigned to a school, your apartment is paid for in addition to 3 meals a day during the work week (5 days a week, whatever they may be). You also get a healthy monthly allowance of spending money, to be used entirely at your own behest. During our orientation, we also got treated to an acrobat show and a visit to a Tiger Park, also for free!

The co-founder Gordon is a great guy. He’s extremely friendly and is always willing to help you with whatever you need. He was constantly around to answer questions, and also to simply hang out and talk. There’s an extensive support staff on hand that are equally as eager to help provide answers to any questions you have. You certainly don’t have to worry about feeling lost and adrift in whatever country you are.

I had previously acquired a TEFL certificate before applying for this internship, so I can’t say anything in regards to the quality of the course that LoveTEFL offers to all its applicants.

The only real negative I would say is that there could be more time spent on showing actual teaching strategies for the classroom once you are placed. While it’s true that policies and classroom facilities vary wildly from school to school, I did feel that there was not as much time spent on classroom management and teaching strategies as I would have liked. How to discipline a class, maintain order, examples of games to play, etc. Also, there was more emphasis on how to teach younger kids in the primary school age. While I was placed in a primary school and it’s not a problem, others were placed at higher education levels such as high school and even university, so almost all of the strategies that we were shown (flashcard games, playtime) don’t apply and may make it a bit harder for them to adjust.

All in all, it’s been wonderful, and I would recommend LoveTEFL to anyone.

I can’t fault Love Tefl really. Since being in China there has been constant support and updates and if anything is needed I would not hesitate to contact them. The staff have been excellent and since they have experienced similar situations to our own, they give a realistic idea of what to expect.
Only slight downfall is that I am teaching high school and I felt a lot of the prep activities was based around younger kids. But to be honest teaching in China is generally a case of winging it at all times so not sure how any extra info would have helped me!
Great experience, great company, would highly recommend using them. China itself is an unorganised place and love Tefl provide some calm amongst the chaos!!

I feel LoveTEFL is a great company that offer a very personal TEFL experience. They have a very relaxed, yet professional one-to-one relationship with you which makes the experience a lot less daunting. The online-course itself covers exactly what is needed for teaching all types of classes. I am now teaching 2nd Grade (8 year old’s) so there is a lot of theory I learned that I won’t ever need to use, but its still extremely beneficial. The course is also very structured so its easy to make a schedule for yourself as you know what your going to have to do and how many Modules/Sections etc. from Day One.
The in-country (China, for me) orientation was fantastic, it allowed for time to make friends and share fears etc. of teaching in China. LoveTEFL partner with IES Global, who seem to a lot of the behind-the-scenes work. The staff at LoveTEFL are available 24/7, including during the orientation where we were accompanied by Shauna, Graham and Gordon, who couldn’t do enough for us.
LoveTEFL is a fresh new company who, from my perspective, take away a lot of the “Travel Agency For Profit” vibe you get from a lot of other TEFL providers. My only criticism is that, even though I don’t understand the logistics of it, when placing people, they should make sure that your placed with people/interns/teachers from LoveTEFL, and not another company.
If your having any concerns at all, push them to the side because honestly, I don’t think LoveTEFL could have done any more for us, they really are great at what they do.

I booked my LoveTEFL China Internship back in April. Right from the beginning my impression of LoveTEFL was that it is a very warm and welcoming company. I found the office staff to be extremely friendly and attentive. Despite not having met them in person I have found it pleasantly comfortable to communicate via emails and telephone conversations. This feeling was further enhanced after meeting Graham and Gordon. The reassurance received from LoveTEFL has been extremely important as we are mostly stepping out into the unknown with little or no knowledge and lacking in confidence; I believe that the final decision of stepping onto the plane really depends on the support given by LoveTEFL.
Whilst I cannot say I am not happy with IES I believe they lack something in comparison to LoveTEFL which is a little touch of humanity. Graham and Gordon talk to us as caring friends, whilst IES are polite yet a bit distant. After arriving at the University and starting to teach, I can see that there is much room for improvement in management and communication between IES and our placement University.
There is one small part I would like to see some improvement on which is the lesson planning training. I believe this planning should be more diverse rather than just focusing on kindergarten. One possible suggestion to this is to have more former teachers from different levels of schools speaking about and sharing their personal experiences in the field. Another option is to have simulation classes which will give the new teachers an idea on how to teach a large class of non-English speaking students. It is important to bear in mind that many interns do not have any teaching experience.
One final suggestion I have is to ask the interns to prepare a short introduction of themselves for the first lesson before they get on the plane. They have all the materials they need at home, for example, a signature product/costume of their home town/country. This type of preparation will make things easier and will also give peace of mind for the first lesson.
Overall I would be happy to recommend LoveTEFL to anyone who wants a lifetime experience, and it’s the best to expand one’s horizon.

I’m currently teaching at a primary school in Zhongshan, Guangdong province and wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the ongoing support and kindness of Love TEFL.
The course itself was easy to follow, and there were plenty of online resources and further reading given to strengthen your knowledge. We were asked to submit a lesson plan and received good feedback and where we could improve.

Once we arrived in China we were escorted to Harbin where we received Mandarin classes, support classes on culture shock and chinese culture, tai chi classes and also lesson planning advice. The classes were carried out in laidback manner and I felt that we received a lot of good tips. We were also able to discuss with fellow interns their methods and share our own.

We were also treated to trips to the tiger park, dinners, accommodation, transport and genuinely warm hospitality. I can’t fault the course organisers at all especially Gordon, Graham and Shauna who were with us in Beijing and Harbin. They were friendly and approachable and I feel that I could ask any of them for help or advice with anything. Even now that we have been teaching for over a month.

The value for money we got from our course compared to other teachers I’ve spoken to is fantastic. The welcoming atmosphere that Love TEFL gave us when arriving in China has helped to make it a mini home away from home. Which is exactly what you need in the wonderful craziness that is China.

I’ll get straight to the point, if you’re thinking about doing a TEFL course and teaching abroad then I’d highly recommend it, just make sure you do it with LoveTEFL.
There aren’t enough glowing adjectives to describe how supportive and committed LoveTEFL have been and continue to be through my own experience of teaching abroad here in China.

Top class company…

I thought LoveTEFL 120 hour online course to be a very comprehensive and engaging course. It is perfect for beginners who want to get into teaching. The array of resources is very useful, there are literally thousands of resources out there that loveTEFL will direct you too. The course structure is easy to follow and the interface is clear. Regarding the content, there isn’t much that is missed here. I feel as if I have learned a lot about teaching from loveTEFL, and you have to love their down to earth attitude towards teaching. 4.5/5. There were a few minor negatives to the course, but they are simply aesthetic. I’d highly recommend the 120 hours online course to TEFL beginners, yet it’s still a brilliant resource for the adept.

I can’t say enough good things about LoveTEFL. The company has been supportive from day 1 of my application and has continued to support me throughout my stay in China. Before departure, LoveTEFL provided a lot of information about what to expect, and were always friendly and willing to help when I gave them a call.

The course itself was good, I felt a lot of it was easy and it didn’t take me too long to complete. It was good to revise the basics of English grammar and be provided with some ideas about teaching methods. There were a lot of online resources, and you submit a practice lesson plan and receive written feedback. No matter how good or bad the course is, nothing will fully prepare you for the first day in the classroom as a teacher. You learn from experience, but this course provided a good grounding of knowledge.

When we arrived in China, we had an orientation which was a lot of fun. The orientation was very personal and relaxed, instead of being strict and business-like. Some of the lessons were a little boring and I sometimes struggled to remain interested, but I think my jet lag was often a factor in that! Our schedule included a visit to The Great Wall, Harbin Tiger Park and a Chinese Acrobat show, all of which were amazing experiences. Transport and food were always provided and we were well looked after by the LoveTEFL staff – they got involved with everything and were one of us.

I encountered some problems on my placement, as the girl I was staying with moved back to England and left me on my placement alone. IES Global (the company who arrange the contracts and placements in China) were sometimes a little difficult and reluctant to move me to a placement where there was another intern. Graham (who works for LoveTEFL and lives in China) supported me fully in my fight to be moved to a new placement and, thankfully, I was moved shortly after.

The price of the internship can’t be faulted. It’s the best value-for-money internship of this kind that I’ve seen, and you redeem all your costs and more. Accommodation and food is provided, both of which I’ve found to be well-above average. Things to remember to budget for are your flights, visa costs (about £300 altogether) and insurance, but other than that, there shouldn’t be any hidden costs. I’m so glad I chose to go with LoveTEFL as the company has helped make my experience what it is.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time doing an online tefl course with LoveTEFL. The content was very easy to understand and I found that it was all very interesting too. I liked how each module was written in such a way as to keep the reader interested throughout, and not written in a style which would remind you of being in a classroom setting with an unenthusiastic teacher for hours on end. While doing the course, I got the feeling that I wasn’t just a number in the eyes of LoveTEFL and that each student was important to them. If I had a problem and needed to contact the team, I would always get a quick and uplifting response. I found that the course material was put together excellently and the quizzes at the end of each module really motivated me to do well even more. I found the content very interesting and practical, I definitely feel a lot more knowledgeable after completing this course. To conclude, I would definitely recommend an online course with LoveTEFL to anyone who is interested in doing a Tefl course. A reasonable price for a good qualification to have. I now hope to find a job/teaching practice for next summer.

Yes, I passed! There has been a lot of anticipation the past couple of days waiting for the results of my 120hr course, the constant logging in to see if any feedback had bbeen added. But finally I get the response I had been waiting for. Thank you all at the Love TEFL team, your easy to read, laid back and at some points humerus online course has helped me get one step closer to teaching my way around the world.

Very much recommended!

The 120 hour online qualification is well worth doing! You can do it in your own time, you get as much help as you want and you come out of it with not only a qualification but also a real belief that you can do it, which people would probably doubt from a course where you never actually enter the classroom! Love Tefl were brilliant and i simply can’t wait to fly away and start using my qualification to earn some money in some beautiful places!

This 120 hour program is excellent for those who have full time jobs & wish to undertake this qualification in their own time. Love TEFL provides 24/7 support with regards to course content & materials if you need it. The course itself is filled with content & will take some time to read, however with a letter effort & perseverance you will get through it! Thank you Love TEFL! I can’t wait to travel & see what is in store for me using this certificate! (“,)

The LOVE TEFL 120 hour online course was very condensed. I was surprised at how much content was jammed into the course. I learnt a lot from the course which I was also surprise at as I already have a degree in Education in Adult Education.
The course was logically laid out in a way that you could stop and restart studying when convenient to you. I never lost track of where I was up to.
The feedback I recieved was very helpful and I could ask for detailed clarification on the feedback when it came to resubmitting some work. This is the other BIG plus, you can resubmit and all quizzes at the end of the modules allow you to retake them if you wish to.
Some articles seemed very dense, I would of prefered some videos or notes to break these up (this is just a personal learning style).
Job placement and practice teaching have not been ranked as this has not occurred as of yet but I look forward to the adventure in South Africa and possibly beyond!
I have already recommended LOVE TEFL to two people and would reccomend it to anyone :)

Having been offered a job in China, I required a TEFL certificate. I looked around at the best deals, and LoveTefl had the best deal on, 120 Hour Course for £99.

As for the course itself, it’s really well laid out, and the course content is very refreshing and up to date. There are 10 modules in total, with plenty of mini-quiz’s throughout each module, which kept me engaged.

Already recommended this site to my friend, who is currently completing the course. Highly recommended!

I have found the 120 hour TEFL course through LoveTEFL to be excellent. I have no previous experience or teaching qualifications and I have completed this course feeling very confident that I could teach a variety of age groups, with differing abilities, successfully. The course provides an abundance of materials and resources and the whole course is arranged into a clear structure. The quizzes, written assessment and end of course test were all cleary explained and rightly challenging and the feedback I have received regarding my written work was in-depth and thorough. Love TEFL are always willing to help if you have a problem and are very efficient at responding to emails. They’re also well organised in getting you prepared for the internship, ensuring everything is completed. I would 100% recommend Love TEFL.

I have just completed and passed (phew) the 120hr online course. I cannot speak highly enough of Love TEFL, excellent value for money, superb course content, support when neeeded, everything top class (excuse the pun!).

I didnt have any ideas or pre-conceptions of what to expect when I started the course, but, I found it challenging, in depth, varied, very informative, they seem to have covered everything. Also, for me personally being able to work at my own pace was a big plus.

I am a (very) mature student, with absolutely no previous experience in teaching and completely out of my comfort zone, so, if I can do it anyone can…… I now find myself living in France majority of the time and it is my intention to do ‘one to one’ teaching and this course has given me the confidence to do and succeed in doing that. Thank you LoveTEFL. ( not rated ‘job placement’ as not appliacble to me)

I have never experienced such an over engaging yet enjoyable online course. I never thought i could finish within a calender month yet when I started I could not stop.
Their modules are well planned and they are flowing and systematic.The exercises help you to keep focused all the time I felt I was in a live class,the course gives you independence to explore and read more.I am so confident that I will not find it hard to teach my first lesson,because the tutor guide on the lesson plan made it so easy for me to plan my own
Love TEFL have given me a lasting gift.I realize teaching is not as easy as cutting cheese but I am equal to the task, I will still go over and over the course till I become an expert .Thank you and thank you.
I assure you will enjoy the course try it its the best.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and the course is structured very conveniently. I’d definitely recommend it to others!

I really loved this course and I feel that in doing it any prospective student will receive a strong and stable foundation upon which they can thrive upon. Having said that my favourite aspect of this course, and the reason why I would recommend it, is because of the people and company style which lies at the heart of LoveTEFL. For me the honest, kind and genuinely good willed support I received before, during and, I’m sure now, after my completion is truly special. This kind of communication not only allows for excellent TEFL learning, but also inspiration in teaching and travelling.

I would like to end by simply saying a big big thank you to LoveTEFL for everything they have done for me!

I found the course to be very hard work and unlike a lot of online training which is easy to pass. I haven’t scored the Job Placement very high and this is only because I did t use it so I cannot really comment fully.

I would certainly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good grounding qualification that will allow them to travel, work and earn all at the same time. I definitely intend to do so.

I would like to thank the ‘lovetefl’ Team for supplying a great course that has helped me to realise my dream.
The course was very informative and provided all the material, and help needed to attain the Certificate they said you would receive.
The Course challenged you, and it made my ‘brain’ come to life to be able to remember all the English I was taught when I was at school, and thought I had forgotten.
I have very much enjoyed doing this course, and appreciate all the help given by the ‘Lovetefl’ Team.
Cheers pete mullen.

Any queries that had were answer very quickly. If I needed to take another online course. I already know where I’m heading!!!

I found the course pretty easy going and found that links to resources, websites and materials made the course last longer than 120 hours in reading which I thought was really good. Most of the tests were self explanatory and helped reinforce the material. The only test which I had a problem with was using the international Phonetic alphabet; this drove me mad having to copy and paste the symbols from a handout into the answer section and the length of the test was about 3-4 times larger than other tests. That being said once I had finished it, it felt like a great achievement a lot of time could have been saved though if there was a better way to transfer the symbols for the test. Overall I found that there was enough information and practice through the lesson plan for me to feel confident in planning a lesson and provisioning for anticipated difficulties and teaching different age groups and proficiency levels. What would have been handy would be a section on teaching your first lesson for beginners who cannot speak English at all. The feedback was helpful and I found the resources and references great and would recommend this course to others.

I found LoveTEFL while actually searching for TEFL courses. I had never heard of it and looked into the credentials and reviews. They were always will to call me whenever I wanted to speak with someone and always responded to emails. They send out emails to check on you and how the course is going. The amount of support is great from the staff. The care more about helping people teach and travel than make a lot of money. They are a small company so they seem to care more than maybe bigger companies. The material was thorough and covered a lot. I have passed the course but I still need to read and study more of the material that I have saved from the course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to teach. Actually someone I know is doing just that and support staff have already contacted her by phone. LoveTEFL is great and hope I can take any future courses with them. They even help with finding jobs and internships. They have allowed me to travel the world. LoveTEFL is GREAT and won’t disappoint you. Thank you many times over.

I undertook a teaching internship in Kanchanaburi, Thailand in November and December 2013. I was already TEFL qualified through a different organisation so cannot comment on their course content etc.

What i am able to review is the excellent service provided by LoveTEFL before, during and after the 7 week programme. Staff were always on hand to answer any questions and concerns i had (there were lots!), they responded quickly to emails etc, and always gave honest advice.

In country, the support continued with a 3 day induction, followed by visits from staff and 2 teaching assessments. They also organised a superb trip for us after the internship. We did have a problem at one stage regarding the trip, however the staff were quick to sort it out to our satisfaction.

I can highly recommend LoveTEFL for anyone looking to train in this field, or looking for work.

I was really impressed with this online TEFL. I took the 120 hours course because I needed the TEFL cert for a job I am applying for. As I already have experience teaching abroad I expected this course to just reinforce material I already knew. I was absolutely wrong! The material on the course gave an excellent overview of different approaches to TEFL teaching, and gave me a tonne of new ideas to try out.

There was constant contact from the company throughout the course and they seem to really know their stuff. I felt supported throughout and my end of course assignment was marked promptly and returned with indepth feedback which was invaluable. I would definitely recommend this company for online TEFL certs.

The course progresses in a logical way providing external sites with extra relevant information, should you like to read it, although it is not a necessity. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to teach abroad!

Being a ‘mature’ student and being out of the school/college system for many years I wondered how I would cope with returning.
My first contact with Love TEFL was via the phone and from the very start they were extremely positive and informative, explaining the course and the cost.
Once I started I found it was delivered in a very friendly way, giving all the important points and expressing views but also allowing the student to form their own opinions on different teaching styles and practises.
When I had any issues they were dealt with quickly via their e-mail link to a designated tutor (within 24 hours) which helped with the flow of the course, although to be honest the modules were so well explained that I only contacted them twice throughout.
I was also very impressed with the way the teaching points were revisited throughout the course which helped to ‘hammer home’ the message.
Finally (and maybe not important to everyone) I really liked the fact that as you progressed through the course, e-mails were sent to you, encouraging and informing you of what was coming up in the next modules.
During the course I did encounter a couple of questions on the end of module tests that I found a little ambiguous, in so much as they could be interpreted in two ways but to be fair, I contacted Love TEFL and they agreed with me and promised to modify them.

It may sound like there were no negatives to this course and to be honest, I am struggling to think of any. It delivered the message and the qualification just as it said it would and they also seem to have a good network of jobs waiting for the right candidates as a follow on to the TEFL course.

Fantastic course! I did the 120hr online course, without practice teaching.

The online course was easy enough for me to follow without addition assistance from the tutors; which is a feat, since I have been out of a formal study environment for a good few years now. However, based on the feedback from my exam, lesson plan and essay, I can tell that they’re friendly, well versed in the course content and will assist without any hesitation.

Just a word on the modular tests :- This is the first time I’d experienced test actually helping you to remember the course content. I have to give LoveTEFL 5/5, just for that!

I would recommend, though, that Love TEFL considers opening a branch in South Africa, so we can do a face-to-face course. Further, there is no criticism.

I really enjoyed doing this courseat home. It is well thought-out with end of module tests and quizzes designed to help learning as well as check proficiency.

The resources are excellent and I have plenty of material available for me to start my career as a TEFL teacher.

I was a teacher for many years and took early retirement but this course has re-kindled my desire to teach and given me the tools to do so. I live in France and am often asked to teach English privately but I didn’t really know how, the course has given me the confidence, the desire and the tools to do it properly.

The jobs section was helpful with writing CVs etc. but I don’t need to take up the many job offers LoveTEFL seem to have on offer.

I was sceptical about doing an on-line course but I am really glad I did it. Thankyou

I feel the course has prepared me to really think about the needs of the students I will be teaching. In most of the modules it was often emphasised the importance of planning and making the lessons interesting to move the students forward in their understanding of English and to create circumstances that will help the students to achieve success in their learning of the English language. Additionally, I thought it was good that the reasons why people wanted to learn English was mentioned (intrinsic and extrinsic motivation).

I think my only concern was that there wasn’t enough information about teaching students with special needs (S.E.N). In a school setting there are bound to be children with different types of special learning needs so perhaps it would be beneficial if more information on this subject could be included in one of the modules.
Overall, I felt this was an excellent course and I have already recommended it to a friend – thank you LoveTEFL!

I find it very difficult to review this course as it is the only TEFL or solely online course I have ever completed, so I have no real reference point. I certainly appreciated the price- not cheap, but far less than many of their competitors. And the information provided was generally very useful, and I certainly feel more prepared to become a teacher now than before I began. Finally, the feedback I have received was useful.

On the other hand, sometimes I felt that I wasn’t being taught anything I couldn’t have accessed for free elsewhere on the internet. There are plenty of links to other websites, which is handy but also a bit unoriginal. The writing style of the text grated a bit at times, with some of it seeming somewhat unbefitting of a teaching course. My main gripe, though, was the use of quizzes- too many of the questions were just too easy, and the incorrect options in multiple choice quizzes were often glaringly obvious.

So, there’s room for improvement but it was a solid course which aided my understanding. At the end of the day though it’s impossible to judge without having experienced alternatives.

Love TEFL have been brilliant! I am currently about to finish my first month of my internship in China, teaching kindergarten (can’t believe how quick it’s gone). The continuous support, having Love TEFL a phone call, email or fb message away, has been very reassuring.

I wanted to do the internship as I wanted to change careers. I loved coaching back in the UK but alas I wanted to travel as well. This is a perfect compromise.

The price of the internship is very reasonable to other Tefl providers out there. The skills and qualifications I have acquired from Love TEFL have really put me in good stead for my new career. Not forgetting all the friendly advice and tips on how to live, work and play in China, given to me from Graham, Gordon and Ian! (Thanks a million gents!) The orientation week is great and allows you to settle any nervs or answer any questions you may have. I was a bit nervous about teaching in a different country. The lessons on Mandarin, The Culture lesson, The “ins and outs” of China talks and the practical teaching classes were all fantastic aids in settling any worries or concerns I had. All I would say is that I would have liked one more day of teacher training just to iron out any other concerns. Other than that, Sue (the teacher trainer) thank you for your patients and advice.

I also want to say that the staff in the office, during the online course and assistance with my visa application, were brilliant. I have never had such a stress-LESS experience with visas and completing a course before. (Major Kudos to Adam and Jo for being so prompt in responding to any problems I had. Thank you.) The only thing I will say is I would have loved to have seen more of the course content in a visual format.

I’m hoping to obtain a teaching placement after my internship. I will then travel around the world Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

Thank you

I really enjoyed doing my online TEFL course over the windy cold winter here, it kept me sane! I found the modules very interesting and varied with lots of different activities. I especially enjoyed the long research articles from Cambridge, very thorough in content and easy to follow. I also liked the videos and I would have liked more of them in the course and more audio too. It is nice to get a break from reading from the screen a lot, I found I ended up printing out a lot of articles just to not look at the screen so much. I would have liked more videos of TEFL teachers presenting lessons to different classes, young learners, teenagers and adults for example. I think that would have been very useful and helpful. Doing the course online in my own time was helpful for me as I have my own business and I can work around it. It was a little frustrating at times when some of the links did not work or the computer was down due to power failure this winter but overall it was a positive experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

Excellent. Very happy we chose to do our internship with LoveTefl.
I am on the China 2014 internship and loving every minuet so far!
From the beginning all the staff members have been so helpful, from getting visas sorted to what we should pack.
Upon arrival in Beijing any nerves I had vanished as the staff who met us in the airport to those giving us our room keys were great and took the time to answer any questions no matter how silly.

As I had completed a TEFL course prior to applying for my internship I cannot comment on their online course. However during orientation the interns received a two day in class course. Our tutor Sue, I thought was great, she was enthusiastic about it all. Outlining the different ups and downs you may encounter in a class, giving us so many games and activities to get students motivated and speaking English, showing us how to make lesson plans and of course, encouraging us to get up and present a lesson ourselves. When first hearing I would have to stand in front of my peers and pretend to be their teacher I was terrified, but after doing it I can see how helpful it was and honestly wish I had have had more time up there. I have never taught a class before and I think those two days really prepared me for what lay ahead of me and for that I am truly grateful!
Teaching in China is an amazing experience so far, I love the school I have been placed in and the students are great and for the most part enthusiastic to learn, but they are teenagers so no surprise there. The only down side is the ‘city’ we are in is quite rural, where I would have preferred somewhere a bit bigger with more to do in the evenings, but you cant win them all and have to make the most of what you have.

Love Tefl have really been great at keeping in contact with us, checking in and sending us on more classroom management info and lesson ideas. Thank you Graham, Gordan and Ian. We are having a great time!

Regarding to the 120 hours TEFL course.

I absolutely enjoyed the course and definitely recommend it. Material is given in good order, within quizzes and small tasks provided to help with understanding the important details.

Only one thing I wish they have added to the course is explaining grammar points that should be taught in each CEF level. I suppose every teacher might discover this knowledge through their future experience and 120 is not enough for that.

I did spend quite long time on making lesson plan and I was rewarded with great feedback explaining every step of lesson plan, it definitely helped me truly understand structure and aims of lesson planning.

I feel more confident in sharing my knowledge after finishing this course and hopefully I will find the job as soon as possible.

I paid for the 120hour online course which came with additional resources such as a grammar guide and a guide with lots of warmers/filler/cooler games. I found the course interesting and easy to understand. I liked that there was loads of quizes at each section to test your understanding and allow you to see your progress. I found the additional resources provided with my course extremely helpful when it came to preparing my lesson plan and the feedback provided on the lesson plan/essay was thorough and even suggested ways to make the lesson even better. I did not score the practice teaching or job placement etc as this was not applicable to the course I applied for. I would highly recommend this course as a good way of learning the basics of teaching english as a foreign language- the next step is to put it into practice! :)

I bought my 120 hour on-line course during a sale. The course took me just over 6 weeks to complete.

The course is well structured with 10 clearly defined modules as well as the written coursework and exam pieces. I felt in full control of my individual learning throughout and I could clearly see I was making progress.

The use of mini-quizzes during the course is a great way to ensure I had grasped the material properly.

The feedback I received for my coursework was excellent and pointed out the areas I would need to focus on for future work.

To sum up, this course is perfect if you are considering undertaking a TEFL qualification.

They are very thorough in their lesson content, plans and everything that goes into teaching EFL. The feedback is very helpful and they offer lots of extra reading material to help you even after you’ve finished the course. They consistently quiz you which helps you in the final test and overall I think it’s well worth the time and money.

The course was well put together and very informative!
Certain modules were particularly useful to me including teaching young learners and the revision of grammar!
Support staff did exactly what they said they would and the feedback was useful and helpful and took just 7 days!
It also provided me with lots more useful website and ideas for lessons!
You can spend just 5 minutes or do hours at any time to suit and easily fits in with other commitments!
Each test is appropriate and re-enforces learnt information.
I would recommend Love TEFL if you are looking to do this course!
I looked at many others before choosing Love TEFL and found it be be exactly right!
Thank you!

I would like to say that I really enjoyed the Online LOVETEFL Course because although I have a B.A in teaching English as a second language and was graduated back in 1993, I felt that LOVETEFL course did really refresh my memory and consolidated my knowledge of English as well as reinforced my grammar, linguistics and Phonetics, which I’ve been studying for 4 years back in Uni. I was surprised that I did as good as I did before in Uni. with regards to the phonetic sounds and was still remembering most of them as if I was experiencing those days back in Uni. It was really a lovely feeling! I would say that the course is written in a an easy-to-read way and clear way that anyone can follow the course easily.The course is really manageable, well structured and organised. The content is thorough with additional information through subtitles for better understanding. I loved the quizzes as well as the end of Module’s Test reviews as they give a quick recap as well as test you on what has been taught in that particular Module. I would definitely recommend LOVETEFL course to anyone wishing to start a career in teaching English as a foreign language and get a TEFL Certificate. A big thank you to Lorna from the support team in Leeds who was in touch all the time with me ,through email or phone, before starting the course and who found me a job placement in KSA. Hope to be successful in my job , starting in September. Many thanks to LOVETEFL and wishing you all the best and further success. Regards. Radia

I really enjoyed the course! I actually worked with one of main language schools in Japan for 3 years before taking it, but wanted some kind of certification to help me work in other countries. I found the training to be very informative, supporting things I had already learned through my work and giving me insight into other teaching methods, which actually made me want to be a more creative teacher.
It’s clearly written by people who are passionate about teaching, and gives links to excellent resources.

I haven’t yet tried the job placement part so that’s why no stars there yet.

LoveTEFL’s curriculum emphasizes the THEORY of TEACHING. The entire course curriculum revolves around LESSON PLANNING, from considerations of context prior to planning, through lesson planning per se, and on to implementing lesson plans in classrooms. The LoveTEFL course is the clearest i know about, on the actual theory / methodology of teaching itself. Now, novice would-be-TEFL’ers are plausibly weakest — i.e. most in need of guidance & instruction — on two particular points:

(1) how to teach
(2) what to teach (formalities of English Grammar)

Never-the-less, most TEFL jobs involve teaching beginners the basics, for whom native English speakers already know enough, about the “what” part. Thus, LoveTEFL’s emphasis on the “how” is most important — and LoveTEFL provides plenty of “primer” on specifics of syntax & such, to prepare people to TEFL over-seas. Also, LoveTEFL’s e-guides are the best beginner-level supplements i’ve seen.

LoveTEFL has exceeded my expectations. Taking the course was a fun experience and I learned so much! I am especially thankful for the excellent feedback. The staff is incredibly helpful and very punctual. Now I feel confident about starting a TEFL career in Latin America. Without the LoveTEFL course I would have missed the theoretical knowledge of teaching English. Luckily I have taught English to French people before, so I did not miss the lack of practising teaching. If you want to practice teaching it is better not to take an online course. But if your aim is to become a certified teacher with extensive theoretical knowledge, then LoveTEFL offers the right course for you! Good luck!

I just finished the 120 hour online course, I have received the feedback for my lesson plan, and I could not be happier with the program.
The staff was helpful and their responses were always timely; the contents of the modules were relevant and super useful. I feel much better prepared to start teaching, but what’s more, I feel encouraged to keep on learning throughout my English teaching career.

This review is for the 120 online course.
The course is very well set out on the website and very accessible. The course is broken down in to manageable chunks and there are websites and articles recommended for further reading in most sections. As there are small tests throughout the course it is very easy to keep track of your progress and find out areas that you may need to go over!
Very engaging course!

I am so thrilled to have recently passed this course and have just received the certificate!
I have not given a rating for the job placement because I wanted to wait until I had the qualification before looking for work, which will probably be private tuition to individuals or small groups.
I really enjoyed doing the course and thought the content was excellent. I feel I have learned such a lot about teaching methods and thought the articles and videos were extremely interesting.
I realise I need to ‘brush up’ on some grammar points I have forgotten, having been out of the education system for more years than I can remember.
I note some people had problems with the phonetic module, whereas I found it fascinating, especially the video where a group of multiple language students can speak sentences simply by pointing to the phonetic symbols.
I have lived in Europe for over 12 years, so have first hand knowledge of the difficulties of learning a second language and am now looking forward to helping others achieve this goal.
Thank you so much the Love TEFL team for helping me achieve this!

I must say I was pleasently suprised by this course, as I had never taken an online course and was worried somewhat – but it all turned out great. Though I did not request a lot of feedback, what little contact I had with the staff and instructors was always pleasent and helpful and should I have wished for more, I’m sure they would have been glad to help.

The content was informative and diverse and did prepare me well as far as online courses go (and at a third of the price others charge), however, as I have not yet been in a situation to apply all that knowledge, I cannot tell if there was sth. missing. However, I’m sure that most people that take online classes are aware of the fact that nothing can replace actual in-class experience – but if you are trying to get a first image of what this career entails, this is as good a place to start as any. I would have wished for more videos (as they provide as close a first-hand experience as you can get online), but most of the ones shown were interesting.The links provided were helpful, but as sb. else posted, one could have found all of the sites through some one minute google search. Quizzes were good, too easy a lot of times, but hey. Mostly be prepared for a lot of reading (which is down-to-earth enough for the most part, so not too dry)!

All in all, you get what you pay for basically – a good, basic course, links and tips. The best you can do after having completed the course is to do your own research, inquire if the schools you are applying to accept online certificates (if they do, it should not matter which course you took, methinks), try to get some first-hand experience volunteering somewhere and buy a lot of grammar books – that should get you on your way!

I am very lucky to have chosen this course and to have had such a positive experience. The course is very helpful and provides a lot of insight into what is required to meet the teaching way of life. I am happy to recommend this course to anyone who wants to teach outside of any native english speaking country. As asked for by the review website, a negative aspect is needed when writing a raving review: I can’t think of any sorry.
The online support is great, it is swift and clear. I wish this small company continued success and I know it will continue to do really well.
Thanks again. : )

I did the 120 hour online course. As a very mature student I was a little nervous but I quickly grew in confidence as everything was well laid out, easy to follow and often written in a light hearted and humorous way which helped.

I found the course interesting, engaging and enjoyable and there are so many links to other sources of material and information, although this got a bit overwhelming at times as there is so much stuff out there. I’m teaching English language voluntarily at the moment and its been great for me to be able to put what I was learning on the course into practice.

Some of the answers to the quiz questions were very obvious and just involved common sense and some questions were very ambiguous – they could have been answered in a number of ways. I found the Phonetics section very heavy going.
I had a few queries along the way but my tutor was helpful and always quick to respond.

Overall the course has nicely kick started a new career for me and it is tremendous value for money at £99. Thank you Love TEFL.

I did the 120 hour online course. I was excited but also, I must admit a bit nervous, as I didn’t know what to expect. However, holding both BA and MA in the English language, literature and culture, I was already familiar with most of its content, so I found it amusing to refresh my memory up a bit but moreover to get some new teaching ideas, especially when it comes to teaching young learners, the course’s content offers many various and both and engaging and fun activities that could be included in a lesson plan.
Therefore, I may say, that this course is very helpful for both experienced and inexperienced teachers or students as they will find all the information and tips they need. Each unit has quizzes, with some questions that are easy, but some required some thinking, so it is a fun way to check your understanding and review what you read. Each section was fun and very useful, particularly the ones dealing with lesson planning and its content.
Finally, I find myself very satisfied with this course, it is not time-consuming and it is rather enjoyable but what is of the utmost importance – instructing. The feedback I got about my work had wonderful comments which made me confident that I am hopefully ready to teach effectively. I hope that with this certificate I will find a nice job position somewhere abroad.
I definitely recommend LoveTEFL course to anyone who wants to learn something more about teaching, get some ideas and pay the lower price.
Thank you LoveTEFL for this experience and all the best to its staff!

I have enjoyed the course and I’m glad that I now have a certificate to compliment my English teaching experience.
I could move at my own pace, review modules and research topics that interested me in more depth with the links and resources provided.
My only criticism is that it took twice as long as advertised to receive feedback for the final assessment and test and since completing the course, I have been told that the certificate doesn’t qualify me to work in English language summer schools in the UK, which is disappointing.
All in all a good way to improve my skill set for £99!

I recently undertook the 120 hours online LOVEtefl course.
It was and interesting, engaging and informative course throughout.- coming from someone who’d never had any experience of teaching before it definitely enabled me to understand the theory and use of teaching mechanisms more fully.
The structure of the course is formatted well and, as said before in other reviews, the layout makes topics easy to revise and re-read at a later date.
The topics covered remained interesting throughout – all broken down into manageable chunks, with links to further study if required/wanted. This made it perfect for me as I am working full time and the structure of the course meant I could fit it around my working hours very easily. The information was all very easy to comprehend and the mandatory testing ensures you are understanding everything as you go along – although some of the multiple choice questions did seem to just be common sense.
I already have a placement in a foreign school to start in August and would highly recommend this course to others as I do feel that this TEFL course has prepared me quite well – particularly due to having to complete an example lesson plan.

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.

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 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’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 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 :-).

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 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 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 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!

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

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.

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

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!!

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 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!

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 hr course, I thoroughly enjoyed learning about how to teach english as a foreign language. 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 would recommend this course to anyone wishing to do a TEFL course. The feedback on my written assessment was done quickly and in a professional manner. I am really happy I did this course through LoveTEFL!!

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.

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!

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’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 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 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 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!!!!

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.

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……

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Excellent course!
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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have just completed the 120 hour online LoveTEFL course and passed.
I found the course to be structured and presented well.
Although I passed on my 2nd attempt with both the exam and coursework I felt that the feedback given to me was very useful, and efficient.
I am now looking forward to finding work abroad and I have already started to recommend this course to friends and family.

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 have thoroughly enjoyed taking the STA TEFL course. I feel I have been given everything I need to be a fun and effective English teacher abroad. 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.

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 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.

LoveTEFL provided a very comprehensive online course with lots of resources for anyone wanting to learn more. Their service was quick and friendly and despite the lack of classroom experience, I feel prepared to start my career teaching English in China.

The comments from the tutor were useful and feedback was provided quickly.

Completing a TEFL course through LoveTEFL, although challenging, has been very fun and manageable. A lot of support was offered and the communication was always friendly. Receiving feedback for assignments was really helpful and constructive, and should help me in future. I’ve really enjoyed getting a TEFL qualification through LoveTEFL and I’m grateful for all the support I was given.

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! :)

I have just completed the 120 TEFL course and found it excellent. I feel that I learned a lot, and although there is no practical experience, I do feel properly prepared to start teaching. There are also lots of good ideas and tips which will definitely be useful, as well as many recommendations for further study and material. The quality and speed of feedback and larking was impressive.

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.

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 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.

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

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.

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 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

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.

I would definately recommended this course to anyone looking to teach English as a foreign language!

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.

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.
