To say that LIVE TEFL was life changing is an understatement. In just four weeks, I learned almost everything there is to know about teaching English. And in the process, I realised that teaching is actually my dream job!

From the very beginning I received tremendous support from LIVE TEFL. I was sent emails with all the information that I needed to know before coming to Prague. Upon arriving, my accommodation and airport transfer had been organised for me which was something I was hugely grateful for when I got here (my sense of direction is horrible!).

The support and encouragement I received throughout the four weeks was absolutely incredible too. All of the staff – the teachers, the organisers and the secretaries are all really lovely and helpful. It makes everything easier when there are encouraging and positive people all around you.

As well as that, I had the most amazing classmates. I can safely say that all of my classmates (all three of them) will be friends of mine for a long time. We spent a LOT of time together but our bond just got stronger!

Now I’m not going to lie, this course is no walk in the park. It is super intense…. But, I promise you, it is worth every minute of the hard work that you put into it. The support you receive throughout makes it all the more achievable too. LIVE TEFL really want you to succeed and you feel that. It is so motivating!

I would recommend this course to absolutely anyone! If you want to teach, if you want an adventure, if you want to meet people and if you want to see another side of yourself, you need to try this course! It’s the best!

It was truly one of the best experiences of my life so far and I am so grateful for every second of it!

I got my TEFL certificate here in September 2017. Thanks to Live TEFL Prague, I gained experience with lesson planning for students of various levels, conducting needs analyses for new students, and teaching in an actual classroom with a mentor teacher observing me. I also got a taste of the Czech language and some good recommendations for exploring the city. The feedback on our work was more straightforward and blunt than I and many other Americans were used to, but we appreciated that it was honest and helpful. With only a month to hone our teaching skills, it makes sense that the feedback should be as direct as possible.

I can say that this course definitely prepared me to teach English in Prague and indeed anywhere in the world, that the trainers provided a lot of help and really great references for my job search, and that the course generally gave me what it promised on the website. If you’re considering this course, I’d recommend having some teaching experience before coming, just for your own comfort and confidence, though it is not strictly necessary. I’d also recommend being open-minded if you do have a lot of teaching experience because the way English is taught in Prague is understandably different than the teaching philosophies of, say, a liberal arts college course in education. Finally, be aware that you won’t have much time to explore the city during the course, so if you’re trying to see more of the Czech Republic / Europe than

the inside of a classroom, allow time after your course ends before flying home or to your next teaching post.

All in all, a good and challenging experience. Good luck!
