I was very satisfied with the quality of content that fhe 168 hours TELF course consisted of, offered by The TEFL academy.

All work is well planned and structured and easy to understand and follow. The end of unit tests was a creative way of keeping me motivated througout the whole course.

At times when I felt a little bit lost, the Academy had a great platform offering assistance to help and guide me to better understanding of what was expect of me.

I am very satisfied and was suprisingly amazed by the wholesomeness of the course. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and learned so much from it to equip me with the tools to become a very good qualified TEFL – teacher.

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to join the TEFL family. You won’t regret it for a single moment.

I was really impressed with the 168 hour TEFL course presented by the TEFL Academy. I had no experience with teaching, and was looking for a course that would not just give me a certificate, but that would equip me to teach English online. This course gave me a solid foundation, and so many resources and support. The content was up-to-date. It was presented in an easy to understand format. The assignments were challenging, and gave me an opportunity to apply all of the knowledge that I had learned. I was given detailed constructive feedback, and never had to wait long for it. On completion, I received my certificate within a couple of days. Also, I was impressed that I did not have to pay extra to it, something that my daughter had to do with her TEFL course through another facility. The only thing that I would have liked is lifelong access to the course notes, but this is fairly easy to overcome by taking extensive notes through all of the units. I am very glad that I chose the TEFL Academy, and I highly recommend them.

I would like to commend TEFL on their very well thought out and designed Level 5 TEFL course, which I recently completed.

It was a rewarding experience.

The course gave a broad overview of the English language, and how to teach it.

The information taught was easy to access in that at the beginning of the course each Unit(ie 1-10) was given a clear index of what was being taught, and when the individual Units were opened there was a list on the side with more information on the Unit lesson for quick access and to view the content.

The sequence of the lessons were comprehensive, and the structure of the course was easy to navigate.

It is overwhelming at the beginning to learn English again, so I would suggest perseverance.

The language used for teaching the lessons was easy to understand.

The lessons were concise and repeated sufficiently for the information to be understood.

I did struggle to decide whether to make notes as I went along, but only did this for the first 5 units, because after this there was too much information, and it was time consuming.

Perhaps TEFL could advise which aspects to take notes on?

A lot of links were given in each lesson to other teaching sites and online sites for more input on various teachers’ ways of teaching, and to get information for the assignments.

One needs to review the other sites that are suggested by TEFL for a broader understanding of teaching English.

The assignments are intense, need a lot of time to complete, and when you’re working full-time it can be daunting, don’t give up!

It is time consuming, but worth the effort.

The online student support for queries is quickly given within a day.

Learning an online course like TEFL has designed is challenging in that I missed being in a class with fellow students for moral support and to exchange ideas.

It can feel lonely at times.

It’s not easy not having a teacher in one’s presence who can answer questions straight away.

I would suggest a platform be offered by TEFL for students, who are starting the course at the same time, to liase online with each other.

Especially for mature students, such as myself, I’m 55 years old.

Thank you.
