The TEFL Toulouse course is an amazing program and highly recommended if you are searching to become certified to teach English. It is challenging but manageable and rewarding once completed. Jonathon and his staff are incredibly talented at making the course interesting but providing the necessary information and training one needs in order to teach English. The teaching practice and feedback are invaluable components to gaining your certification. The tools one receives during the course are without a doubt beneficial to future employment as a TEFL teacher. I’m so happy that I chose this particular course in order to gain my certification.

This is a thorough and excellent TEFL course which, although challenging in terms of deadlines, was very rewarding and enjoyable. Although I have taught for several years I learnt so much and wished I had completed this course before starting out on a teaching career. It has proven to be very useful in my new job and I am grateful to Jonathan and his team for all the positive and meaningful feedback given during the course.

I had already been teaching before I did the TEFLtoulouse course and was not really sure how useful I was going to find it. However, as I do not come from a teaching background and wanted to move into teaching adults at a higher level and therefore teach grammar, I felt I needed all the help I could get.

TEFLtolouse was perfect; it brushed up on my existing skills, taught me new ways of teaching while being taught in the “teaching English” style, and corrected any bad teaching habits I had picked up along the way (for which I was immensenly grateful for!). The course was demanding yet both knowledge and fun-filled. It was a brilliant experience being taught by seasoned English teachers and trainers and I picked up “tricks of the trade” that would have taken me years to learn.

I was quite shocked at how much difference the course made to my teaching. The content cannot be changed but the teaching has. My lessons finish on time , the students talking time has increased, and they leave feeling truly challenged and energised. Lesson planning and production of activities has been simplified. I have received many positive comments from the student while in the class. Last week a student exclaimed “I wish all my language lessons were like this class!.”I haven’t stopped smiling since.

Choosing to do a TEFL course came at a crossroads in my life and I am so glad I did it, especially with TEFL Toulouse. It was a challenging, fun and very rewarding experience. The quality of training was excellent and very well structured. The teaching practice was invaluable and really helped me to build confidence ahead of starting out as a TEFL teacher. It was a very intensive course, but with the support of the training team and fellow trainees, the more challenging moments were easier to surmount. The training centre is very well-situated, in a lovely part of Toulouse, which makes it all the more pleasant. I would highly recommend doing the course with TEFL Toulouse. Jonathan’s expertise and experience are tremendous and he has a great way of creating an interesting, fun and enjoyable learning experience.

The 4 week coarse was an amazing experience mentally and emotionally. It was incredibly challenging but I made it and it felt so empowering to have succeeded. Each instructor was obviously knowledgable and very supportive but also critical (constructively) which I found to be the most helpful. I feel very qualified to go out and start teaching. That being said, I would have loved a class on CVs and Letters of Motivation. I am finding it very challenging creating one as I have minimal experience. However, I will be emailing them and asking for help and I know they will do what they can to help me so I am not too worried about it. The program was a super intense, but rewarding experience. Thank you all so much for creating this program and having such amazing teachers there to teach and support us!

Fantastic TEFL school in Toulouse. I took the month long course in the beginning of January 2015 as soon as I arrived in France and it helped loads with my transition into the country. Not only do you learn all the tools that you need to start teaching immediately, but you also get access to a handful of heavily experienced teachers.

As far as course content goes, the class was difficult and engaging. We began with the basic pedagogical models, but we were soon put into real teaching situations. The combination of the theory sessions and the hands on class room experience, followed by quality feedback, made me feel a lot more confident in terms of preparation, organization, and managing a classroom effectively.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking to get started in teaching English as it will give you all the necessary tools and more.

Plus the life-long job guidance is very handy as most of the people working there are full of good advice and connections in Toulouse and abroad.

My experience with TEFL Toulouse was one of the best in my life. A fun, informative and really well structured course set me up brilliantly to start teaching and has allowed me to hit the ground running since I’ve started teaching. I’m now working in three different language schools and have had to start turning more work away, allall his is down to the course and the preparation it gave me. Jonathan, Judith and all the teachers are great, helping you with absolutely anything, they are inspiring, encouraging and fun to be around. There is a lot of work to be done but in a pleasant and fun atmosphere, getting help with pretty much anything (including the best places o go out in Toulouse etc…) making it one of the most fulfilling months of my life. Huge thumbs up for TEFL Toulouse, I couldn’t recommend it more highly!

One of the most difficult learning experiences in my life, one of the most rewarding too!

I was born in Bulgaria where I learnt English at the English Language Secondary School (all subject taught in English), then went on with an MBA degree abroad (all subjects taught in English and French), finally I did the preparatory course for CAPES (French diploma for teachers at Secondary level) – none of these can be compared to the four Tefl Course weeks. At the beginning I thought it was so because it was a very intense course or because English was not my mother tongue, but soon the complexe contents and the serious work they required made it clear to me that THIS was the right place to learn to apply a great practical teaching method and to gain initial experience in applying it through having real lessons teaching to real students – yes, TEFL Toulouse is the right place to become an English teacher and the TEFL Toulouse wonderful team are the right people to transmit their valuable knowledge and experience to you as well as to guide you and encourage you when you doubt in yourselves! Thank you so much, Jonathan, Julie, Lea, Katerina, Andy, James and Judith! Today I can make a clear lesson plan with relevant activities and I feel at ease and confident as a teacher! Tania

I attended the TEFL Toulouse program in summer 2015, and it was one of the best training experiences I’ve had. The training was intensive (and at times exhausting), the experience of trainers was really solid, and they provided lots of practice. I decided to stay in Toulouse and the folks at TELF Toulouse provided leads and assistance for finding my first work; within a few weeks of graduating I had begun working. Every day I depend on the skills developed and methodologies taught in those intensive weeks. It’s a solid program – I recommend it unhesitatingly. Thanks Jonathan, Judith and all the trainers at the school!

I’d been trying to be an EFL teacher in France for years without success until I had this overwhelming experience of a 4-week work packed training session at the TEFL Toulouse with a team of extremely professional teachers and collaborators with very good energy and innovative approaches to teaching grammar with fun.

I found a job with a reputable language school in Toulouse shortly after finishing the course, thanks to TEFL Toulouse contacts. Everything I learnt in the TEFL course has proved completely useful in my job and I must add that I am actually having great fun teaching business English – something I couldn’t have imagined a few months ago. Thanks a lot to Jonathan and the TEFL Toulouse team.
