I really enjoyed taking the TEFL course (168 hours).

All the units were well made and explained the concepts with many useful examples. Each unit gravitated on an important aspect of English teaching. I will for sure follow all the suggestions.

I would have preferred more tips for teaching English online.

I found the three assignments motivating and instructful since they put my knowledge to the test and practice is a very important part of the learning process, for this reason I would have probably preferred an additional assigment.

Overall the course is really excellent and I would take it again.

I took the 20 hours in class and I found them really beneficial because we simulated a class and we simulated many exercises. This helped me during the course in the units that were talking about those kinds of examples I could clearly envision them in my mind.

I recently had the opportunity to complete my Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) through The TEFL Academy.

I am so happy that I chose this company! The course content is great and covers so much.

The support I received from the amazing staff at The TEFL Academy was incredible and made my experience super enjoyable.

I am planning my trip to Vietnam in the next few months and am unbelievably excited!!

I cannot wait to get started, this was honestly one of the best decisions I have made!

Signed,

One Very Happy South African 🙂

Overall I really enjoyed my time with the TEFL Academy. I found the content of the course thoroughly engaging and enjoyed the method/manner in which it was delivered. The intensive weekend was a great asset and the teacher was fantastic, moving at a good pace but making sure that everyone was keeping up. Having a small class was also an asset. I would have appreciated a chance to actually practice teaching properly, but I can always find my own way to do this, I suppose. The quality of feedback was generally good although sometimes a little vague. Lesson Plan Guidance was quite good. The first time felt a little overwhelming but got more comfortable as the course went on. The number of additional readings/helpful links provided with each unit and at the end of the course was superb! And I am so grateful to receive regular emails informing me of opportunities to sign up/apply for various programs and to put my course to good use!

I would recommend this programme to anyone wanting a sound TEFL accreditation.

I just finished the level 5 TEFL course (168) and I’m thrilled to say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made!

I learnt so much about methodologies and the modules were easy to follow.

I gained a lot of knowledge and I’m happy to share it with my future pupils!

I have recently completed the Level 5 TEFL course (168 hours). I am a trained primary school teacher and have been looking for a change of direction. This course seemed to fit the bill. I started the course while still teaching and was able to access the online units during my spare time.

The class based sessions were great, it was lovely meeting like minded people and I wasn’t the oldest person in the group!! Emma, our tutor was brilliant, I loved the lesson she taught us only speaking Greek. The venue wasn’t great, (Holiday Inn Ashford) and buying a coffee was a very interesting experience! However the garden centre over the road was fully stocked with food and drink so in the end we all went there for our break times.

The online elements were clearly explained and easy to work through in your own time. As a trained teacher some of the online elements covered things I already knew but the grammar unit was incredibly difficult even after having taught SPAG for a few years now. I feel that unit needed to have more information on all the different tenses, although there is a lot of information on the net if you get stuck. I enjoyed the assignments and like the checklists that I was given to ensure I had completed all the necessary elements. A great course. I would highly recommend it.

I recently finished my Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs). I did a combined course where I completed a 20 hour weekend in Durban city in South Africa. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I made so many wonderful friends.

The online section of the course is easy and efficient. I did not have to call for support for anything dealing with the course content. Its so simple and easy to follow. The end of unit tests are a wonderful way to revise all the content of that unit. The assignments are challenging but if you follow all the requirements it is not hard to score high marks.

I am extremely happy with this course. I recommend it to every person I can and I have successfully influenced some. I thank tefl for it has brought me great knowledge and given me life changing opportunities. I am currently living and teaching in Japan. I love it and owe it all to Tefl. So thank you Tefl team.

I recently completed the Level 5 TEFL course (168 hours). I really enjoyed it because it was a new experience for me and it far exceeded my expectations.

The course content is well structured, organised, not to mention fun. he course offers a wide range of helpful information and I really enjoyed the end of unit tests because completing them gave me a great feeling of accomplishment.

The most fun I had was in the 20 hours of class time. The instructor kept the class fun and interesting the entire time, therefore it did not feel like a waste of time.

It was definitely worth it and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new experience.

When I started with The TEFL Academy I was uncertain if it was going to be worth the money that I spent as it was the first and only TEFL site that I used having read reviews about it. Now I can honestly say it was the best decision I made regarding TEFL. I did the 168 hour (online only) course as I am currently working. This made it very easy for me to complete the course. Though it does take more self research I found it less of a task and more of a part time hobby. The presentation and practice of TEFL skills in this website are extremely well put together and even has a touch of humour weaved into it. The feedback I received from the tutors and technical team is extensive and thorough and I understood what they were conveying with ease. I enjoyed the quality of teaching that they give and felt right at home. They even helped me with finding TEFL jobs abroad by giving me CV and Cover letter examples and tips, they also include other TEFL sites where I can look for work which I found extremely helpful. If you are looking to have a TEFL experience and don’t know where to turn to The TEFL Academy is your way to go. I would call it a gateway to life in TEFL.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the 120 TEFL course. The course includes both practical and theoretical learning. The practice part is completed during a weekend. This was great fun as you get to meet other people doing the course. Our tutor was also highly experienced and extremely helpful.

The online theory part of the course is well organised and easy to follow. Tutor support is also available should you need any assistance and the feedback from assignments given is very useful.

Overall this is a great course to do if you are still working full time and want to do a course that is manageable within your spare time.

I am thrilled to have completed the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs). The course proved to be a real challenge (even though I am a native English speaker). However, the challenge was necessary and entirely appropriate, it is designed in such a way that students must reach a high standard to pass. This ensures that new teachers are well prepared and have the necessary skills to undertake teaching roles in whatever form that may be; groups, individuals, etc.

I highly recommend this on-line course to those considering teaching English as a foreign language and would also add that attending the weekend course was extremely beneficial.
