To whom it may concern.

I would like to thank & highly recommend TEFL Ireland should anyone be considering a TEFL course.

I recently successfully completed the 180 hour course and I could not have achieved this qualification without the help support & encouragement from the Irish TEFL team, especially Rachel my tutor Jacob my assessor, Kate Katie Ola & the tech team amongst many others. During my studies my mum became gravely ill and TEFL Ireland were of tremendous support during that awful time. My only regret is I didn’t do this YEARS ago. Thanks

so much.

Best wishes, Nikki

I am very happy I decided to take this course. The quality of this course from the internationally recognized TELF Institute of Ireland is amazing. I undertook this course having first successfully completed the 120 hour Premium TELF Course. As expected, the on-line teaching course was very helpful, packed with all the resources I needed, videos and links, additional literature, overall amazing content. The course started with virtual classroom and platform considerations, the role as an on-line teacher, I specifically loved the guidance on whether to provide self-employed services or work for an established on-line training company.

Thank you the TEFL Institute of Ireland for excellent training and great support all through the course.

Having previously completed with the TEFL Institute of Ireland the 120 hour Premium TEFL Course and the 30 hour TEFL On-Line Teaching Course, I was again impressed by the quality of the 30 hour Preparation for IELTS Teaching Course. As expected, the course was equally challenging and highly relevant to my needs. The course started with a detailed introduction to the IELTS Testing requirements with a good overview of the objectives, testing procedures etc. that need to be thoroughly understood by the Teacher. This then led into detailed modules related to the listening, reading, writing and speaking tests, followed by an excellent guide on vocabulary requirements for the various levels of tests. Finally, there was a section on the possible challenges that the teacher will face depending upon the class composition , level and objectives of the learners. In all parts of the course it was thoroughly interactive and full of resources and links that will prove invaluable in my future TEFL career development.

I am sure that this course will prove invaluable in developing my career in providing on-line TELF specialist services primarily within the Asia Pacific region. Thank you the TEFL Institute of Ireland for excellent training and value for money.

I have just completed a 30 Hour Teaching English Online course. The course itself is quite well-structured and the course content is very informative and useful. I definitely feel more confident about teaching online after completing this course, so I would highly recommend it!

I am so happy to have completed the 10-hour virtual TEFL.ie course with classroom experience. The facilitator Michelle Benson made the experience engaging, informative, and relaxed. Although I learned loads of practical tools to implement in my class, it felt very much like a social experience. I met some great people who I can reach out to. I felt very much supported going forward. TEFL is a real community of Practice

Review of 30 hour TELF On-Line Teaching Course

Again I could not be more impressed by the quality of this course from the internationally recognised TELF Institute of Ireland. I undertook this course having first successfully completed the 120 hour Premium TELF Course. As expected, the on-line teaching course was equally challenging and highly relevant to my needs. The course started with an overview of the requirements for online teaching, setting up the virtual classroom, platform considerations, setting up the workspace and resource considerations. This then led into the role as an on-line teacher, teaching one to one and small groups, and guidelines to ensure effective lessons at all levels and for all student needs. Then, of particular interest to me, there was a more detailed section on the role of the on-line teacher followed by guidance on the considerations essential in making the key decision whether to provide self-employed services or work for an established on-line training company. In all parts of the course it was thoroughly interactive and full of resources and links that will prove invaluable in my future TEFL career development.

I am sure that this course will prove invaluable in developing my career in providing on-line TELF services primarily within the Asia Pacific region. Thank you the TEFL Institute of Ireland for excellent training and value for money.

Review of 120 hour Premium TELF Course:

I could not be more impressed by the quality of this course from the internationally recognised TELF Institute of Ireland. It was indeed challenging but also held my attention throughout starting with the role of the teacher followed by a full outline of how the English language and teaching methods have developed over the years. This then quite logically led into the key teaching techniques related to grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and considerations related to teaching receptive and productive skills. Then, of particular interest to me, there was a module dedicated to Teaching English for Different Purposes. This covered a complete range of purposes from teaching different age groups from very young through to adult professionals requiring assistance in specialised areas such business personnel. Also included was teaching students requiring assistance preparing for IELTS and other examinations required for visa or university entrance. Finally, the course concluded with clear guidance for the steps needed for moving into the first and subsequent jobs. In all parts of the course it was thoroughly interactive and full of resources and links that will prove invaluable in my future TEFL career development.

I am not a teacher by profession although I have been responsible for training programs in my work over the last 40 years as an infrastructure specialist in international development and wanted to develop this further to providing on-line TELF services primarily within the Asia Pacific region. This course has proven invaluable in providing the foundation for the next course I will undertake – the 30 hour On-line Teaching Course. Thank you the TEFL Institute of Ireland for excellent training and value for money.

If you’re looking to enrol in a TEFL course, look no further than the TEFL Institute of Ireland. This company not only provides invaluable content, resources, materials, and lessons, but also offers the most incredible support and assistance from the TEFL team. It differs so much from other online courses as you can rely on real people to interact with, and check up on your progress. From both the coursework and online seminar, I feel that I have amassed a wealth of TEFL knowledge, and feel so much more prepared to enter the classroom. Doing this course was one of the best decisions I made to improve my future, and I would recommend it to anyone- don’t even think about it!
