TEFL Wonderland-Brilliant Minds is specialized in teacher training and course development. We are the pioneers in creating gamified TESOL certification courses that turn learning into sheer fun. We offer Ofqual regulated TESOL Qualifications (Level 3 Certificate and Level 5 Diploma). The courses include 20 hours of guided teaching practice where participants teach real students while supervised by a TESOL/TEFL expert.
We believe that a great teacher can ‘hide and teach’. They can plan lessons and create teaching materials that enable students to take control of their own learning. They move from the boredom of ‘chalk and talk’ or ‘click and read’ to the fun of ‘play and practice’. So, we create magical worlds where trainees can play, practice, take risks and enjoy every moment of their learning expeditions.

Tefl wonderland is an amazing organization that encourages development. they somehow managed to make this course a success for even a new graduate like myself. when I first graduated and started applying for teaching positions, the whole process was truly intimidating as I had no teaching experience and no idea what to expect. however, after taking the course, I gained much confidence and got to see what teaching can actually be. the teaching practice was exceptionally helpful as I had the chance to teach an actual class, make my own lesson plan, and receive feedback from my instructor and my peers.
landing a job was a piece of cake after taking the course!
Review 3 of 4 TEFL Wonderland
I’ve just completed the Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Level 5, and amazingly, the content of the course has considerably exceeded my expectations for TEFL courses. I have a BA in English, certification in translation, and an MA in TESOL, so I’m competent enough to assess the content and structure of those courses. Content wise, the course is comprehensive covering not only how to teach the four skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking), and the three language systems (grammar, vocab, and pronunciation), but it rather extends to approach crucially important relevant topics, such as class management, material design, lesson planning and staging, and assessment.
Amazingly, it also expands to tackle other areas, to the best of my knowledge, not addressed in other TEFL courses, such as how to teach ESP courses, how to approach people with special needs, how to deliver test preparation courses, how to teach online, how to plan for your career, etc. The content that one may spend tens of hours gathering from numerous seminal books of EFL teaching and trainers with extensive expertise is amazingly compiled in a one single very interactive package. Online teaching, for example, has been a must for many available teaching positions, but are we all ready to take that challenge? Addressing teaching online classes, for example, is one of the fascinating areas that I was quite thrilled to find on this course. Also, the course is further complemented by a 20-Hour practicum to apply all that has learnt into practice and get insightful feedback from well versed instructors. Last but not least, the developers’ concern about the issue of accessibility is really catching. As a visually impaired applicant, I cannot but acknowledge the tremendous support that I’ve got from the instructors. Every feedback I made on accessibility issues have been taken into account very seriously and many issues have been resolved.

I believe that TEFL Wonderland is a course carefully designed to match all the teachers’ need and provide them with a unique learning environment which is accessible to all learners.
The content is presented in a uniquely engaging way. It is visually appealing. It is not click and read. The personal feedback which is given after each assignment submitted has helped me alot. Their tutor support is very friendly and helpful.
