This site and program was horrible and because of this miscommunication on their part they will not refund me $500.00. I did not go abroad and did not get the certificate. This was a waste of time and money. I don’t recommend EVER!

The TEFL online course was most difficult to find how to start. I have taken hundreds of online training without having to ask questions. In fact was given online psychiatric nurse program to fill in for state and school daily and never had any problems.

The content was good, but quiz questions too detailed. I have written tests as university lecturer to nursing students and they all passed their state boards. That shows their testing was helpful to them and not just tiny facts they might never use in practice. I took all quizzes after reading material and passed them quickly if questions were pertinent to flow of learning content. Two answers were marked with red x but word correct next to it so retook quiz with same answers and that time no red x.

I learned a lot and am thankful to have had the opportunity. I did each of the ten sessions for about two hours a day and the quiz for 15 min or so from memory of what I read. Thank you for giving me TEFL certificate!

An enjoyable TEFL course that I completed with just over a month of easygoing work.

I took the Angloville Scholarship and the experience was wonderful.

However, its worth noting that the CELTA is preferred in countries that Angloville operates in. For going to Asia this degree is perfect.

An email I sent I never got a reply, fortunately, I resolved the issue myself

The work experience was great, however over all the content of the TEFL course did not seems that practical and too theoretical.

I had an amazing times with TEFL, the course was very well written and easy to follow, at the end I received a certificate that managed me to travel through Poland and the Czech Republic.

The team in TEFL managed to get me placed in a job in Greece for 5 months teaching English to refugees, it was heartbreaking but so satisfying.

I would thoroughly recommend this company to anybody thinking of traveling as they have been incredibly helpful and really care about their students.

I undertook the 240 hour TEFL Expert within the 90 days and got it at a special offer.

There are 5 courses incorporated; it was straight-forward although initially I experienced some ‘information overload’. However once I established my pace (with some free time to simply reflect) and was disciplined about time management – it was smooth sailing.

Note: this course can be completed sooner if you are not working full-time like I was.

Should it not be adequate, you can extend for another 7-90 days at a fee.

The ‘references’ and ‘further reading’ pages are very informative and certainly worth reading through and spending adequate time.

The quizzes are relatively easy thereafter. There are 10 questions for each module and all multiple choice.

You cannot move to the next module unless you have successfully passed the current quiz.

There are reflective tasks throughout the modules but they are not graded.

The online chat feedback was swift and polite.

I noted a few spelling errors and the links not working properly in the course material which I relayed to Premier via the online chat feedback. I was able to find the same information from references and it took longer but you will note a lot of the information in this course is similar if you refer to the books/websites on the same topic/subject. However the flow in the course is very good and easy to comprehend.

I liked the web page layout and easy-to-read font – used a desk top computer.

I took notes, printed/saved links of all the content in this course as I will no doubt need to refer to the same in future.

There was no direct communication from Premier after they acknowledged payment.

Remember if you want hard copy certificates, reference letters, a mock interview etc., these are all charged extra.

The entire course content was very holistic and gives a good foundation – however as a native speaker of English, the quizzes were not as challenging as I had anticipated, and at the same time without the practical experience afforded I feel inadequate. However it is up to me to either take an internship or get some class-room experience but I am confident it will not be a big problem, as I am equipped with the right ‘tools’ to teach English as a foreign language, and the experience of teaching will be on-going!

Thank you Premier TEFL! Keep up your good work!

– sorry I cannot rate each criteria as it was not personally experienced.

As a social worker dealing with immigrant and refugee populations, it made sense to me to have some background in addressing the language barrier that all of my clients face when coming to the US. I never expected to enjoy this training as much as I did! Although the idea of standing in front of a classroom is still strange to me, these courses made me feel much more prepared than ever before. In addition I gained a lot of insight into the way I learn languages, as a method of relating to my future students and helping them learn English.

The online courses are manageable and thorough – each lesson was broken down into smaller portions which made it much more approachable. I was able to take very effective notes and access some wonderful resources which I would not have otherwise known. It’s great to know that I can come back and review these materials at any point during my future teaching career.

Completing the course with PremierTEFL has created new opportunities for me to change my career and undertake a more rewarding way of life.

The online course is easy to navigate through and very clearly laid out, which allows you to dip in and out of the materials, and go back to them – a flexible system for those with busy lives!

There were a few questions in the individual module tests that did not seem to link up with the module content, but it does allow you to review your answers before final submission, which was very helpful!

I did not get any Feedback or guidance whilst doing the course, so I cannot fairly rate my experience of this.

I have not yet received any job offers from PremierTEFL that I can apply for – they have been age-biased for 18-30 year olds, or the cost of the Internships has been extremely prohibitive. This has been disappointing, but I was not relying on PremierTEFL to provide me with a job as well!

I have been able to use my qualification for private tuition and still have the large catalogue of resources provided in the course available to help guide me through these early stages as a TEFL teacher. Thanks!
