Having completed multiple online courses and one in person courses I’ve had great opportunities to learn with the TEFL Institute of Ireland! I have plenty of teaching experience yet I still have learned lots of new tips and tricks for the classroom.

The follow up after each course was great in terms of job opportunities, additional information and progression in learning. The specialist courses are great to upskill following each course.

Very good course, well structured and easy to follow with lots of great detail. After doing a TEFL previously with a bootleg company, TEFL Ireland’s 120 hour course was exactly what I needed! Would recommend the course to anyone. Also there’s a lot more options for 30 hour courses. For example I did the 120 hour TEFL and a few smaller 30 hour courses in reference to teaching business and specialised English to adults. Very handy to put on a CV.

This is an excellent TEFL course provider. Their learning materials are detailed, thorough, and well structured. I found the course informative, good value, and particularly liked how it enabled me to gain a valuable qualification at my own pace. I’d recommend this provider to anybody looking to become TEFL qualified.

I did a 120 hour TEFL course in January 2019. I wanted to get Teaching online straight away and this course allowed me to do just that.

I found the website easy to understand and I had no problems deciding what course suited me best.

I completed the course over a long weekend and received the certificate immediately. This enabled me to apply to companies as soon as I completed the course.

Pros

Website is easy to negotiate

The course was as described

Certificate arrived immediately after course completion

Cons

I can’t think of one

I would recommend this course.

Having completed the 120-hour course with this institution has been a very enriching experience; The course content is exactly what you need to be clear about before you start teaching, with clear guidelines, videos, post cast and real examples within the classroom. The thing I liked the most is that you can go at the pace you want and without hurries in a fairly long period of time.

I have always had aspirations to do a TEFL course and teach abroad, however, I continually kept putting it off as I thought it would be too difficult, that I would not have time, or that it would be difficult to find a job…I could not have been more wrong!

Over a fortnight ago I decided to subscribe to the TEFL newsletter to see if there were many job opportunities. The next day I received an email informing me that there were 4 places left for the South Korean internship, which included the 120 hour premier TEFL course. This seemed like fate as I had always wanted to live in South Korea, however, I still had my reservations. I requested a call that night, and the next morning Kate Popova rang me. She patiently talked me through all the details of the internship and kindly answered all the questions I had. She also talked to me about her own personal experience teaching as a TEFL teacher – to say her enthusiasm was infectious is an understatement! I had butterflies in my stomach the whole time I was speaking to her!

One hour later my place in the South Korean course was secured!…now I just needed to do the course which is the part I was most worried about (I am a master’s student currently writing my thesis, so I had concerns that I would struggle with time management)

I soon discovered that I had nothing to worry about.

2 weeks later I was a qualified teacher – just like that!

I thought it would take me months to complete the course and that I would be weighed down with assignments, but that was not the case. The course was so simple, straightforward and as I am a very independent learner it suited me very well. That is not to say there was no support. I had a tutor that I could reach out to for support, or if I had any questions, but I did not need to avail of this as the course was so well designed that I had no problems whatsoever.

I implore anyone who is thinking of doing a TEFL course to go ahead and do it! You will not regret it. Like I said, all I did was subscribe to job updates and 2 weeks later I am not only a qualified teacher, but I already have a job in South Korea which I will be starting in September.

Thank you to everyone at TEFL for making my dreams a reality!

I enrolled for the 120 Hour Premier TEFL Course. At first I was skeptical because I found them online and did not know anyone personally who has been certified by them.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised because it turned out to be one of the best decisions i’ve ever made! The course content was very enlightening and did not feel cumbersome as it was very easy to understand.

The service is top notch, I must say! They replied all my emails promptly and were very helpful with whatever concerns I had. I was assigned to a personal tutor, Rachel, who was really supportive and attentive. She clarified the questions and difficulties i experienced while taking the course! I would recommend them in a heartbeat!
