Review of The TEFL Academy

The TEFL Academy is the UK’s leading TEFL course provider. Their courses are designed to effectively teach their students the fundamental skills to enable them to be successful at teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL).

There are many TEFL course providers operating throughout the world.

The TEFL Academy’s 120 hour TEFL course aims to provide students with accurate information, skills and training to ensure they leave the academy with a sound understanding of teaching English, as well as a clearer picture of the TEFL industry as a whole.

Dear TEFL Academy, thank you! I am very happy I have finished the course and that I have chosen your academy. It gives English teachers a great chance to travel and to work with people in different countries, which is extremely interesting for anybody. Each module is so informative and useful that I would recommend this course even to those teachers who are not going to work abroad, as it helps to systematize your knowledge and make sure your lessons are well planned, and interesting for students. Thank you.

Woohoo I’m finished ☺️ I am so happy I picked the TEFL academy to do my TEFL course with. Each module was so informative and I learned so much. All the tests and assignments kept me on my feet. It is such a flexible course. I work full time and I was able to complete the course to fit in with my schedule. I am so excited to travel the world and having this course opens so many doors for me. Thank you TEFL academy. I 100% recommend this to anyone who wants to travel.

Phew,i’m so glad i’m officially done with my course and i can teach English as a second language. Enrolling with The TEFL academy was one of the best decisions i have ever made with regards to my academics. The student support system is phenomenal. The assistance i got from my tutors was exceptional and very helpful.

The study material is well documented and it prepares you as a teacher. I’m currently working as teacher but when i worked on the lesson plans provided by the academy, i was challenged and inspired. The lesson planning is quite effective and it enables the teacher to achieve the desired outcome.

I have studied a couple of times on-line with other institutions, but clearly The TEFL academy tops the list. Service is is excellent and i shall share to friends and family the wonderful experience i had

Signing up to TEFL was one of the best things I have ever done. I found the 20 hours in the class with the teacher really beneficial and worthwhile and the online course really informative. The course was structured really well, and whilst I found the tests and assignments somewhat challenging, I felt a real sense of achievement once they were completed. I also recommend buying the TEFL handbooks as they are so well presented and really helpful when looking for new ideas and resources and information on how to teach certain things.

I have just completed the 120h course with a distinction. when I have read the forums about the assignments I really had a hard time waiting for my first results as many people were not getting it right the first time according their messages. However, it all went extremely well and I can just say that if you follow the guidelines as given throughout the lessons, you will not fail. After my one class this week I suddenly realized that my lessons are worked out according to the plans I have just learnt, so my 20 years of robotics teaching was not that far off but now I know the reasons why I should do things certain ways. Thank you very much for this opportunity.
One thing that I would like to ask is that a PDF certificate is available for download as part of the fees. For some reason South Africa only gets a printed one send by mail and this makes it difficult when you have to send out your CV with copies of your certificates.

I’ve just finished the 120 hour online TEFL course and I am extremely satisfied with how it was presented. The course offers step-by-step guidance on how every aspect of teaching an L2 lesson should be approached, planned and executed. It also enables you to sharp-up on your own English literacy through a comprehensive, yet concise combination of theory and practical activities. The course also provides personal, in-depth feedback so that you know exactly what your strengths and shortcomings were in planning a lesson for a specific class. The only reason I haven’t given perfect ratings for Practice Teaching and Job Placement. is because I haven’t applied for a teaching job yet and, as I had done the online course, I haven’t had a chance to teach a real class yet. Overall, I am very impressed with what the course offers.

I just finished my TEFL course. First of all the 20 hr training was very good and i could apply what i have learnt there in the online course. The content of the Modules was great and the tests really gave me a eye opener to work hard and get good grades. It was not a walk in the park though, you really had to work hard. The assignments was a great challenge it was not easy. Hard work really played a big role. I was super happy with my tests results and my assignment results. I am ready to apply what i have learnt and i will definitely recommend anybody to do the course. TEFL is the best.

Very happy to say I just qualified with a distinction, loved the course enjoyed learning a different take on English teaching. I still need to set up my CV so at this point I am unable to rate job placement or facilities.

I have been studying for years so at first, I thought this would be a breeze. I was pleasantly surprised at the intensity, quality and difficulty levels so yes it challenging.

Very excited to apply what I have learnt.

Enrolling for the TEFL Course has been a life changing experience for me. I now know exactly what I want to do with my life and I could not be prouder and excited to share my experience a passion of this language with my future students.
The course includes all you need to start as a teacher and is a first step to your creativity in terms of the activities you can design for your students.
Tutors and assistance are very effective as I never waited to long for an answer when I needed help.
All in one, it is an amazing experience that I can recommend to anyone who would want to teach English and I can’t wait for my new adventure to start.

As a South African, an older student, a past primary school teacher, I have so enjoyed re-learning the complex grammar of my home language. I have learnt much about myself through doing the TEFL 120 hour course: I am tenacious, able to set goals and achieve them, and that studying is not just for the young!! Before I began I requested a phone call and received it within 8 hours, so I always felt held although I did not join a group, nor did I need additional email assistance. The course structure was carefully planned and feedback from tests immediate. Assignment feedback was personal and swift, thank you. If I could suggest a slight change, I would have appreciated being able to see exactly where I was in each module to the left of the teaching screen. At present one scrolls up and down to see where one is in the process. There are so many resources for students during the learning program me, and once the course is complete. I enjoy the comments from people already teaching and your website is upbeat and easy to interact with. I have not looked at the job placements yet as I will travel for a few months and then teach in some exotic country! Thank you TEFL Academy!

The 120 hour online TEFL course is amazing! I liked it so much! I learnt a lot about different aspects of English teaching, though I’m an English teacher. It’s very good that organisers provide 6 months to do the course, because a lot of people work a lot and have unexpected matters sometimes. I’m also very thankful to my trainers, they are very helpful and competent.

Thanks to your course I can travel more and teach English at the same time, that is to do what I have dreamed. I have achieved my goal, thank you very much!

I have just completed the 120-hour online TEFL Academy course. I have had experience teaching in the classroom so I didn’t choose the course with the 20-hour classroom teaching. I found the course very well structured. The lessons covered interesting topics and explained the content very well. The course offers great support and feedback is very quick. I have a great passion for languages and this qualification is going to allow me to teach all over the world which I am so excited to do. In October I am going to start my TEFL job in Madrid teaching English and German – cannot wait. Taking this course was the best decision I ever made! Many thanks! Annabel

Teaching English for 15 years, a teacher is always looking to develop in the field. I decided to take the TEFL course to shift my focus to teaching English to foreign learners and branch out into other countries.
The course is one of the best I have experienced. I never had a problem with the website and if I had a question, it was always answered promptly. The course is organized and flows nicely, making it easy to get through it.
The final two assignments gets you to apply everything you have learned.
I would recommend it to anyone interested.

Completing a TELF course was something I had always planned on doing and I am delighted I picked the TEFL academy to do it with. So professional from the very beginning. The 2 day in class course was extremely helpful in completing the online modules and I had a fantastic instructor and great set up. The 10 modules are so well planned out, the TEFL academy online portal is flawless and I never experienced any problems with it whatsoever. All aspects of the course and it’s assignments are so well organized and flow seamlessly together, I would recommend it to anyone interested in completing the course. Great value for money. 10/10.

I wanted to do a TEFL course even if I was already an English teacher in Italy. I knew a boy who had done the 120-hour online course previously and he suggested me The TEFL Accademy. The course was very good and thanks to it I understood I was making some mistakes. I changed my way to approach my students and I also started using some of the very useful advice given in the course. Since I am a mum and a worker, it took me a while to finish it and even if I was a bit late when I sent my second assignment, the staff was awesome and they extended my course by 7 days as a gesture of goodwill. Overall, I was very impressed with the whole experience and I would suggest it to every English teacher.

The TEFL Academy provides excellent courses for the teachers who are looking for improving their professional skills and progressing in their teaching career. The 120-hour online course, which I completed, is very well designed containing clear instructions and explanations. The practical tasks are meant to use the majority of course material so that it enables to imply the theory in practice. It was my first course from the TEFL Academy but I am looking forward to continuing studying in such a format and manner. The fact that the modules can be passed anytime within the mentioned 6 months period makes it convenient to combine studying with all sorts of work or activities the student is involved in.
I strongly recommend the Academy as I am convinced that the courses it offers are highly efficient, encouraging, informative and worth taking up.
Wishing good luck to everybody who is going to enrol and have an exciting time progressing in their noble profession.
Kind regards,
Zoriana

I recommend this course to anyone who doesn’t have enough time to attend a full time course as it contains all needed teaching techniques and methodologies.

With no prior teaching experience, I feel confident to start my teaching career abroad now that I completed the course. I will not hesitate to recommend the 120 hour Online course to anyone looking to do the same.

I have been teaching both Italian and English for 9 years at different levels but I keep studying to improve my skills.
I decided to take the online TEFL course because it gave me the opportunity to manage the course at my own pace as I am always very busy with work and family.
Even though I had taken other courses at University and have enough experience, the TEFL course gave me lots of new ideas to get my students involved in the classroom and lots of tips to improve my pronunciation, besides revising the most important aspects of teaching. The resources provided from the course are really a plus and are very useful both in the short and long term.
The course has been thought for inexperienced teachers but it is worth doing it even if you are already teaching. It definitely adds value to your résumé.

Very pleased with the 120-hour TEFL course. The online element was great because I could complete it in my own time (which I managed to do in just over 2 months) and the 2-day classroom workshop added a bit of real life element to it. The online course is easy to follow, but still challenges you to think out of the box. I already have a teaching job that required obtaining this certificate, but am now more confident when I talk about grammar, teaching vocabulary and how to structure a teaching lesson. Well worth the money!!!

The TEFL course with the TEFL academy was one of the best choices I made. It’s good value, the online course was not too hard, I was given feedback if I needed to revisit my assignments. The combined course is a great option, I found the class room based learning really helpful with writing lesson plans and most importantly lesson practice. I now teach English in Japan. The TELF course has opened so many doors for me.

The online course helped me understanding the better way to plan a lesson and focused on the principal issues that can be encountered during a teaching lesson.
The “in person” part was inspiring. The teacher was amazing! Kind, informed, professional, ready to help and give advice. I spent 2 amazing days in Liverpool with all the other students and I don’t regret a single minute spent there.

I am a former geologist who fell on hard times and needed a complete career change.

I am not a native English speaker, but I am as passionate about this language as I am with my mother tongue, Afrikaans.

I heard that there is a great demand for qualified English teachers in across the globe. Particularly in Asia.

As a former temporary geology lecturer, I am passionate about education and looking forward to this next chapter in my life.

I started the TEFL 120 hour course in March 2017 and completed it last month.

The classroom component of the course was fun filled and the tutor, Luan Dreyden was simply fantastic. She is an extremely competent tutor and I learnt a lot over that weekend.

The online tutors and student support services staff were extremely professional and helpful.

I have sent my curriculum vitae to various institutions in South Africa and around the globe. Unfortunately I have not succeeded to get a job, but I am still staying positive.

Thank you TEFL Academy for giving me a new lease on life in terms of starting a new career. Your prices are absolutely affordable and reasonable compared to other institutions.

May your institution go from strength to strength going forward.

Having recently completed the 120 Hour Combined TEFL course I have been impressed with the level of support, professionalism and rigour of both the two days on-site course and the subsequent on-line training. The tutor on the on-site course was helpful and knowledgable and the materials provided were appropriate to the level of the course. The practice teaching sessions were quite short but gave a useful insight into how different students and teachers interact. The on-line training was well structured and developed skills and knowledge as the course progressed. Regular tests gave encouragement and confirmation of understanding, which was useful in knowing how I was progressing. The final test and assignments made use of all the information and skills gained on the course and left me feeling well prepared for a TEFL career.

TEFL academy offered a very clear, easy to understand course and easy to use website! It was a great experience and I have been previously hesitant to study online as I feared you would feel isolated, or supported and not get detailed informative feedback but this wasn’t the case at all! Definitely worth doing this course!

Hello there, I completed the 120-hour TEFL course couple of weeks ago and already found a job as an English teacher in China. It took me 3 months to complete this course, tests were well-structured and simple to complete. Site is easy to navigate and comfortable to read. The feedback I’ve received during the course was thorough and vivid.

It was a bit complicated to complete final two assignments but thankfully to clear instructions I managed to get those done in two weeks.

What really caught my attentions is price politic of The TEFL Academy, it’s affordable and much lower than other prices which you can find online.

Thanks to a great and helpful team of The TEFL Academy.

I really enjoyed doing the online 120 hour TEFL course. I found it very informative and quite straight forward. The grammar module was slightly more tricky but I found that I exceeded my expectation when I completed it and passed. The Tefl Academy is extremely efficient when dealing with students and I found that they very quick to respond to queries which very good. The feedback given for both of the end of course assignments is so helpful. The communication received after completing the course made me happy as I feel the academy accommodates the students very well. I would recommend anyone to do this course through the Tefl Academy.

A two-day concentrated introductory programme was followed by the on-line modular work and final assignments.
Having embarked on the course simply for interest and having never taught before, I found the modules (especially the grammar!) more challenging than I had imagined.

However, the notes were comprehensive and additional resource links and information were/are very useful. I enjoyed working through the modules and got a sense of achievement when I passed the test at the end of each module.
The end of course assignments were quite daunting at first but once I had the plan clear in my head, it was simply a case of working through logically.

The tutor Julie on the launch programme was excellent. Really spot on.
The on-line support and direct support on the couple of occasions I telephoned was always helpful and I though the overall quality of material was very good indeed.

Got there in the end and my distinction was very satisfying!
I’d certainly recommend the programme.

This was a surprisingly comprehensive and intense course. It is grueling to get through all the modules plus the major exam and assignments, but that’s how you know you’re getting your money’s worth. The teachers were very helpful in their feedback and thorough in their marking. The only thing I would say is sometimes the instructions are extremely detailed and hard to make sure you have every single requirement down for the assignments. I would recommend this to anyone, especially for the value you get. I can’t comment on the job placement yet, as I have not utilized that at the time of this writing.

The Tefl academy is an excellent choice for completing a fully-online course.
The course structure is very consistent and the exercises are both challenging and rewarding. The course offers an abundance of extra materials for further reading and EFL interest.
I found help was easily available and the feedback I received was clear and constructive.
The TEFL Academy offers more than enough time to complete the course and an equal amount of help to get you through it.
I highly recommend them.

I signed up for the TEFL course as my dream is to teach abroad – and this course has definitely opened up that opportunity for me! I had been told it is possible to do it without the course, but I wanted something that would adequately prepare me for the role I would take on, and I had heard good things about The TEFL Academy!

Overall I thought the course was great! It covered a lot of important content in a very coherent manner which allowed for easy and enjoyable learning. The feedback at the end of each assignment was really clear and comprehensive, and allowed for personal development. I didn’t do the face-to-face teaching element as I did not have time around my jobs, but if I had the chance to do it again I definitely would! (this is the only reason for a ‘fair’ rating as I was not able to leave it blank)

Now I have completed the course, I have the background knowledge (and the certificate, of course) to embark upon whatever teaching opportunities I may find, and I am eternally grateful! I seriously recommend this course for anybody looking to teach English as a foreign language.

Picking an institute to obtain a TEFL course can be stressful, and once you have deiced what institute you’re going with, how do you know if their really accredited? Well you can rest assure that The TEFL Academy is the worlds leading TEFL institute, and for various reasons. Starting with the payment process, once you actually paid for the course, its not a waiting game, you literally start immediately… no hassles.
The course content is thorough, which is a very good thing, trust me! You don’t want to be an incompetent teacher.
Secondly the institute is very responsive in every aspect of the business, their email replies are quick, if you have any problems they will phone you and actually help you.

Ultimately, I’m referring anyone who is thinking of doing a TEFL course, to do it with The TEFL Academy, you’ll have a solid qualification and you wont regret it.

Overrall, I really enjoyed doing this course as the tutors and staff were very friendly and helpful. From the start until the end I have had continous support and encouragement and I cant thank the Tefl Academy anymore. The 20 Hour teaching in the classroom in Nottingham was very useful as our tutor explained everything carefully to us and gave us a more deeper insight into how we should deliver lessons as well as planning lessons for Tefl students. The tutors online were very useful as they explained the assignment tasks with additional resources I could use to help me gain a better understanding of what I had to do. These were the best six months of my Educational period. Thank You Tefl Academy….

The course was very accessible and all the resources used were always given in links with further resources included. The face to face 20 hours also helped me a lot being able to speak to a tutor in person and was really informative. Overall the course is great, wouldn’t look anywhere else for a similar course.

I have just completed my TEFL course and I would recommend The TEFL Academy without a doubt. What I like about this course is that after every module one has to successfully pass a test first before the next module is given. The resources and keywords that are given after every module are very valuable.
I think that the way it is put together is great and very user friendly. I was stuck on my very last assignment and the response, after I opened a ticket query, was very quick and helpful.
It is sometimes a bit tricky to interpret a question as I come from a different county, but that did not hold me back from passing with a 91% average. Thanks for equipping me, TEFL Academy!

I started the TEFL Academy 120 hour course in February, and very quickly established that even though I am a native English speaker, have an AEB A level in English, and a university degree, that I had surprising little understanding of the intricacies of the English language.
The modules on pronunciation and grammar were a challenge, which I would not have appreciated had I not enrolled for the course.
The 20 hour weekend course was very helpful, with the course facilitator giving 1st hand experience and advice on what the student teacher should expect when moving into the field of ELT.
I believe that increasing these 20 hours to 40 hours, with a smaller group of students, would better prepare the learner teacher for the challenge of classroom work.
This would obviously have an impact on the overall cost of the course, but I believe that the committed student would appreciated the additional exposure to, and practice of, teaching as a practical skill.
Overall, I have enjoyed the course, and am looking forward to putting the TEFL Academy education into practice.

The TEFL Academy has provided excellent content for this type of course. The course is really well structured. At no point did I feel too pressured nor did I ever feel unchallenged. Everything needed for the module tests, final exam, and the end of course of assignments was all provided for by the Academy. Overall, the course keeps you intrigued and motivates you to keep going. This is something that is crucial for online courses, as many are easily left for lack of interest.

Definitely recommend this course!

I absolutely loved this course. I always thought of completing a TEFL as I’ve always wanted to travel the world and this will give me the opportunity to do so. I started the course in January of this year and completed the course quite quickly. Some aspects were difficult such as the grammar however really really rewarding when you were able to answer the questions. The assignments were extremely independent however as I’m going to university in September this was a great preparation for my studies. 100% recommend this to anyone, the course was brilliant as well, met some lovely lovey people. One of the best things I’ve ever done.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Some modules were definitely a bit harder than others but there was always help along the way.

I wish the in class teaching part of the course involved two weekends or more as I absolutely loved it. I learned the most there and it helped with understanding some of the content I came across later.

There was a slight issue with me receiving the wrong feedback for one of my assignments but it was rectified within 2 hours, other than that no complaints at all and would completely recommend it.

It is quite difficult to fit all of the studying in while working full time, and you need to seriously plan many weekends in advance, so make sure you are completely committed before beginning!

5 stars with no hesitation! Let me give you my reasons for that: 1. The content is very well structured, complete and much more easy to grasp than I’ve imagined. No, teaching English is not easy and passion is a must, but the content was done in such a pleasant and in the same time professional way that makes me feel that I really have a strong foundation to start this wonderful adventure. 2. I’ve also done the 20 hours course in Istanbul and I must say it was a fabulous experience, no exaggeration. Our tutor, Ms. Sue was fantastic and I’ve also learnt so much from my colleagues. 3. The assessors, Ms. Roberts and Mr. Horlock gave me great advice. 4. The price and the assistance are great, probably the best on the market.
I truly recommend this course for everyone ready to start the adventure of their life!

The TEFL Academy was fantastic. My weekend course teacher was a very dynamic and experienced teacher which definitely gave me to the motivation to get through the online hours.
Once I had submitted my online assignments the tutors offered really valuable feedback which helped me when I first started lesson planning a few months later in my first job as an ESL teacher in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The lesson plan guidance is very comprehensive, and the layout of the online course is varied so you don’t get bored easily. If you’re someone who wants to do further reading they also provide you with useful links, but equally its not essential.
All in all, it was a fantastic experience, and as a result, I am looking to become further qualified in the area.

Since I found out I was going to be moving abroad to Spain I was very interested in doing a TEFL course. The TEFL academy appealed to me because the majority of the hours were done online so I could be flexible with when to complete the chapters. It was very convenient for me as I am a student so I could study and do the assignments during the evenings or on the weekends and the 20 hours of classroom teaching were available in my area. Another reason why I chose this course is that at the time I went to book it there was a sale which really made it more accesible.
The online content was very informative and easy to navigate.
I did the classroom hours towards the end of my online course and I would recommend doing this if possible. I was able to pick up on teaching techniques I had studied that the instructor was using in class and I felt that everything was being reinforced and coming together compared to some my classmates that were just starting out their course. The instructor was really motivating and encouraging and made the classes really interesting and comfortable. She shared a lot of her own experiences which gave me inspiration for teaching abroad.
However, the lesson plan I was given as an example in my classroom hours could have been done in more detail. For the end of course assignment I based my lesson plan off the one we were given in class but through the feedback I was told it wasnt substancial and required more detail. This left me quite confused as I wasn’t sure what I actually needed to do. At this point I would have found it beneficial to have someone to contact for minor questions instead of completing the entire assignment and having to wait a week to get any feedback, and maybe even having to start from scratch again. For the second assignment I found the tutor gave much more constructive feedback that I can use when I am teaching.
Overall I really enjoyed completing this course and I can’t wait to start teaching next month!

I work in tertiary education and have written many books, but the course was no walk-over. Some of the modules were quite demanding and the manuals were well written. I found it was quite easy to copy the on-line modules into Word files and I used the content for study purposes. The assessor, Emma Healy, was very good and demanded a very high standard. This course was certainly worth the money I spent on it and is at a very high, professional level.

Living abroad I wanted to do an online course that I could do in my own pace (as I am traveling a lot) and would still give me all the opportunities to have a valid certificate that I could actually use after this adventure abroad. This course gave me the chance to follow the course in my own pace, had a lot of information and excellent resources, gave great information about putting together a lesson plan and offered two days of class with other students under the guidance of a mentor who put into practice what we had learned about.
One point that I think could be improved is the fact that you can not get the right answers to the test unless you send in a special request. Why not provide the answers after you can no longer submit a test – it saves the student time and stress. Other than that I would certainly recommend the course to somebody who would like to teach EFL but does not have the opportunity to attend regular classes.

I’ve been contemplating about teaching English online for sometime when I stumbled upon a website offering such opportunity. However, because I haven’t had any teaching experience, I realised that I needed to have some qualifications to be able to do it.

There were quite a few choices on the internet offering the same course but what attracted me to enroll with TEFL Academy is the affordability of its 120 hours course apart from the timeframe being perfect for me since I am on full-time employment. Even then, I was still reluctant to enroll due to concerns of its authenticity. Luckily, TEFL Academy website provided a means so I will be able to verify its legitimacy. I did just that and received a response from that organisation confirming TEFL Academy’s authenticity.

I enrolled on 14 Feb. 2017 and completed the course on 28 June 2017. As I work full-time, I can only spend an hour or two intermittently on weekdays to work on the Modules and spend couple more hours on weekends.

I found the Modules to be interesting and eye-opener. There are so much information about teaching that I never knew. Obviously, the Module that I found challenging yet very rewarding is Module 3- Grammar. It also served as a real refresher for topics that I have already forgotten.

The real-time marking of end of Module tests instantly allowed me to evaluate where I did good and what went wrong.

The end of course assignments allowed me to come up with my own ideas on how I should prepare a lesson plan in the context at hand.

I also found the marking of the assignments to be within the timeframe indicated in the course introduction along with the useful comments from the reviewers.

In addition, the Academy also provided resources on Job Placements, tips on preparing CVs and cover letter. Great stuff.

Overall, I found the 120 hours course a value for money.

Thank you TEFL Academy.

I found the course, the 120hr tefl academy course very informative, well structured and simple to follow. Before embarking on the course I had no previous knowledge on any subject regarding teaching. I was apprehensive at the start having no experience or knowing what to expect, to whether I could complete it, if I’d find it interesting. Once into the first module I was really enjoying it, it’s laid out in easy to understand exercises and I was surprised how much I had learned in just the first few modules. The exams really test your knowledge and they are timed which is great, so no cheating. It was so satisfying to get back a good grade for each module having put in the hard work. The end of course assignments were challenging but also clarified what you really learned on the course. The hard work paid off and I was pleased with my overall grade. I would, and already have recommended this course to others. The lay out and module/exam process is very well written and covers the main aspects of tefl teaching. From someone who started with no idea about teaching I really feel I got all I could out of the course and gained alot of valuable skills and knowledge.

The TEFL Academy does a wonderful job compacting a lot of information into a full-online course. I love how it was go at your own pace. I learned a lot of information and I will definitely be a better teacher for it. They provide a lot of resources for job searches, but other than that, it’s all up to you. I don’t find there to be any personal help in finding a job.

I found the TEFL online course to be truly comprehensive and dynamic. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Modules were concise and well-structured – one can see that many years of experience has gone into that. Every module contained some revising of previously learnt material. The lesson planning modules were great and there was a lot of creative input and ideas for activities. There was enough space allowed for one’s own input in the workbook activities and in researching information. The whole course was really well put together in preparing one for all the aspects of teaching English and the resources and support are phenomenal. So all in all I cannot fault the entire course in any way. I have already recommended it to others and will do so for anyone looking to teach English.

This course is well prepared, well structured and easy to understand. all the lessons are varied, they cover all the aspects of the language and the tutors are very helpful, they gave me wonderful advices to improve my lessons but they also congratulated with me when I did a good job. The help desk was really helpful with me, answers were fast and well explained. everything was easy to understand, even for people who are not english mothertongue, as I am. I really recommend the tefl academy!

The most amazing thing about the TEFL course offered by The TEFL ACADEMEY is how user-friendly the lessons are. The course material is professional and suitable for any person that wants to get qualified as a TEFL teacher. I would highly recommend the TEFL ACADEMEY to any person looking to study through a institution that offers their students a remarkable and reliable study course. Let’s not forget the quality of services they offer.

The TEFL Academy courses were fairly comprehensive and taught all the basics required for teaching English abroad. The worksheets were helpful, albeit a little redundant. A stronger focus on the actual teaching portion would’ve been helpful as well. Overall, a strong course that prepares you to teach English abroad!

Really well organised online course. Each module is detailed and having the workbooks to go through was really useful. The end of course assignments were a bit tricky and you need to allow quite a lot of time to do them after completing all of the modules. The practical training weekend in London was fun and educational. Although this was really helpful and I learned a lot I still don’t feel entirely prepared to teach an actual class. In theory I’m prepared, but I could have done with a bit more practical training.

The TEFL course came along at a time when I really needed it. I was lost and looking for something to lift my spirits, and that’s exactly what this course did for me. Now, I’ve just finished the course, and I am ecstatic that I passed – I worked hard for this so I have myself to thank, but the validation from the course leaders that I can actually do this is a fantastic. All I have to do now is get my ducks in a row and find a class to teach. I’ll let you know how it all goes!

The TEFL academy had a vast amount of content that covered all areas of the English language and how one would teach the English language to non-native speakers. I am really glad I choose the TEFL academy to do my TEFL certificate with as their constant support and quick response to emails and they reassured me that I wasn’t left alone to complete this online course.

This course is very unbalanced. Modules 2, 3 and 4 are the hardest ones. The questions on the tests are poorly written. The tests are timed too. Once you manage to get through the 10 modules you will be given 2 assignments. My biggest complaint is that you will not get much help if any. They will send you a one page word document with some vague guidelines that are practically useless. There are no examples either. In fact I have not found any examples of lesson plans online or anywhere else for that matter. This is the problem with online classes. You are on your own.

I have just completed the 120 hour TEFL Academy online course and I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested to teach overseas. I have really enjoyed the 20 hours in classroom with a great intstructor named Andrew. The online part of the course contains 10 modules, easy to follow and very bell built up, clear instructions what and how to do it. The end of course is followed by 2 assignments including a lesson plan+ grammar and writing an essay. It was not easy , it made me to work really hard on them but my effort has been paid. I have finished my assignments with distinction and I received great feedback from Daniel and Elisabeth, many thanks for that. Overall I was really impressed with the quality of the course, has teached me a lot and it worth every penny spent on it.

The TEFL Academy was not the only website I looked at when I was considering teaching. It was however the most appealing when it came to persuading me to sign up. I was not disappointed. The amount of in depth information and content that was provided was phenomenal. I had access to so much supplemental content as well. I did not feel that I was being overwhelmed at any point, I was able to do all of the required material at my own pace. I opted to take the strictly online version of the course, due to my work schedule. Not only did I feel like I was learning in a way that was beneficial to me, I was also able to review as much as I feel that I needed to.

If I were to do the course again, I might opt to do it in person, mainly so I can interact more fluidly with colleagues. I will, however, fully recommend taking the course online. If it is the only option. I am definitely content that I chose The TEFL Academy.

I decided to take the 120 hour Tefl course after teaching English in Greece for 30 years, mainly because I wanted to gain a formal qualification in teaching English. Despite my experience, I learnt a lot of useful things on the course which I started to put into practice in my lessons, such as teaching vocabulary in context rather than using translation,even though I speak the students’ native language. This made the lessons much more interesting, both for the students and myself.
Being a mature student and having other commitments, I was worried that I would find the course very demanding, particularly the assignments, and that I might not be able to complete it in the six months. However, the 20 hour weekend course was excellently presented and prepared me for the online part. The content of each module was explained very well and all the ideas were supported by examples which made them easy to understand. The assignments were rather demanding and took me a little longer than I had expected.
Personally, I found the course to be an enriching experience, and I would recommend it to both new teachers and those who are more experienced.

I was a bit skeptical of joining and paying for an online teaching course as i had read so much negative reviews about certain courses. How they rip people off and other courses give out certificates that are not even from a qualified body.
After a lot of searching i found TEFL Academy, i called and spoke to a very friendly helpful person at the office who explained everything to me and also i called the accreditation bodies to verify everything was in order, when everything checked i joined without hesitation and the price was great too.
I found the website easy to move around and it is really helpful that you had the choice of printing each course or you can easily do it all online but i preferred to print it all off to have everything at hand.
If you need to ask questions you can open a ticket and i found the replies very helpful and not too long to wait.
The actual course work is very interesting and in depth and i personally learned a lot and enjoyed doing the exercises and the tests after each course.
Everything leads up to the final assignments so you get so much help from each course, I found the tutor’s feedback negative or positive are really helpful. They push you in the right direction to get to the right path to passing the assignments.
I would honestly recommend this course as it is genuine, full of great help and advice also there are real people you can talk to or email.
Thank you TEFL Academy

This is a well designed and supported TEFL course. The combination of online and direct practice time provided an excellent foundation to start teaching English for different levels in a variety of settings. Additionally, the resources for looking for work and crafting a CV are very useful for teachers that are just starting out. Personalized feedback on assignments was clearly well thought-out. I had no technical problems with the online course.

Everytime I’ve contacted the instructor, she/he has given me very good feedback to follow my course and pass the test. I appreciate all the resources this course provides in order to plan a good class for my future students.
I still haven’t searched for a TEFL job, although I consider this option for the near future.

I completed the 120 hours of TEFL online course and I am very satisfied with the whole course. This allowed me to organize my time and deal with my job and the rest of things to do without any stress!
The lessons are very clear, every instruction is planned in details, no room for any misunderstading! And, should you need any help, tutors are really helpful and extremely nice and kind with you.
The final assignments are a bit more challenging as you need to use your fantasy to find some ideas for lesson plans and put all the informations you learnt together, but at the same time, you got all the instruments to get a really good job done.
I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to start a career in education without any experience.

A friend of mine stumbled upon your deal and we signed up together at a special rate. I couldn’t have been happier with the course, doing it in my own time and the 20 hour weekend sacrifice, I was well prepared for having been giving the date in advance. Not only was it a fantastic way for a native speaker to review all the grammar essentials, but also an amazing resource for learning new teaching material and methodology.

Thank you TEFL Academy for all your support and patience.

A thoroughly enjoyable course, nicely balanced, heavier modules followed by less challenging modules.
I completed the class based element in Galway where the facilities and teacher were excellent. Even that there was a shop so nearby to escape to buy treats was really convenient! The weekend was intense yet very manageable.
The online element needs dedication but is also very interesting. End of module tests mean you are being assessed as you go. The end of course assignments prepare you for what may be required of you as a TEFL teacher and the feedback is very specific so you can go forward with confidence that you are correct in your lesson plans etc.
Overall I would highly recommend this course for anybody considering language teaching. Such a fun approach to learning was eye opening!

I completed the 120 hour online TEFL certificate through the TEFL Academy and I was very impressed with the entire course. The content is interesting and usefully challenging. All of the activities are designed to help understand the content in a useful way. Some of the small activities seem a bit unnecessary, but as a whole the course is an amazing way to get a fundamental understanding of the English language and teaching this language to students.

I am really delighted that I passed the TEFL course. It was something I really wanted to do and finally passed it! I am very happy. Am looking forward to now teaching the world english!!

The whole course was very well organised. Tutors were always available to help and give feedback. Feedback was good and constructive.

The course on line was a great asset too because it allowed me to take my own time to do it, with the constant help of the tutors.

Tutors and class assignments give you a chance to be creative and open your imagination, whilst keeping in line with the tools and the rules..

Thanks again for all the help you have given me and for opening new doors of opportunities.

This TEFL allowed me to affordably learn while already in another country. The course material was easy to understand but challenging enough to teach me new methods of understanding language. I was already teaching when I started the course, but with each new module I felt I had so much more to offer the students. At the end of the course I was a more confident and considerate teacher. Also, the online resources introduced during the course will be resources I continue to use as long as I teach English.

I would definitely recommend the TEFL Academy to anyone who is interested in teaching overseas. By having the online and in-class options has provided the opportunity to understand more about teaching English as a foreign language. The course is easy to understand and tutors are always willing to help if needed. The 6 month timeline allows you to work at your own pace while ensuring you learn all the skills necessary throughout the course. However, an option is also provided to extend the course past the 6 months if more time is required.

I really liked the length of the course and felt it could easily be completed within 3 months. Lesson plans were comprehensive and well explained. The assignments that end the course were also not too over-complicated. The cost of the course is what initally attracted me to this (approx 250 euro) and the 20 hours of face to face teaching were incredibly helpful.

I recommend spending the 20 hour weekend once you have completed the 10 online modules so that you can make the most out of it. A really rewarding and enjoyable course.

I signed up to the 120 hour combined course with The TEFL Academy in January; I did so mainly to try/learn something new. However, over these months I have thoroughly enjoyed studying and the course has inspired me to actively seek work as a teacher.

The classroom based element of the course was delivered by a fantastic instructor (patient, engaging, knowledgable etc…)- my only criticism would be that the 20 hours of classroom based learning are delivered over just two days which is rather intense. Personally, I would have preferred the 20 hours to be delivered over three days as this may have helped me to assimilate the material. Nonetheless, the two days offered invaluable learning and the opportunity to practice planning/teaching language lessons.

The online element of the course I cannot criticise. I found the material to be really accessible, really engaging and I have genuinely enjoyed working on my assignments. The instructions were clear and the tasks were relevant/interesting.

I highly recommend this course.

My overall experience with TEFL Academy has been nothing but good. I was able to work and study at my own pace, learned a lot of new things and refreshed my memory from my studies.

I was very pleased with the fact that I needed to engage my brain while studying for this certificate. Also I loved working on my final assignments because it forced me to put myself in the position of an actual teacher. The comments on my assignments were very helpful and insightful.

The only reason I gave three stars on Job Placement is because I can’t say if it is good or not as I haven’t had the chance to look for a job in that field yet.

I’m happy with the experience.

This was the challenge I needed to fill my student summer holiday. I particularly loved the 20 hour classroom element as you met like-minded individuals, made friends, and got a real feel for the practical element of teaching. The TEFL course is fun, engaging and a great gateway to travel whilst working.

I am yet to complete my university degree, but afterwards I look forward to using my certificate to travel the world.

The course was easy to use, the website worked well and the assignments were exciting to work on.

My review is short but tell you everything about TEFL Academy: The course is very well organized. Your study materials are useful and enjoyable. My goal was to find a job in France when I started but the biggest gift what I got from the Academy is -now- my English is much better than it was when I started. (English is not my mother language.) The tutors helped me and encouraged to do more and more and gave me the direction how to grow… It was a beautiful journey for me.

Started the 120Hr course and completed within 5 months. Found the approach of taking the 20hr practical towards the end of the course to be beneficial because we could apply the knowledge gained during the course. The 2 day practical was facilitated by an experienced teacher with world travel experience.

Standard of work expected in both end of course assignments is high. Did not pass on first attempt but received suitable knowledgeable and practical feedback from tutor to successfully complete the resubmission with high marks.

Overall would recommend this course for all aspiring TEFL teachers.

After completing this course, I would happily say that I have gained my money’s worth. I completed the online course and found it very easy to understand and complete task. I was very impressed with the feedback as it allowed me to better my teaching methods without any misunderstandings. Communication is very important when doing an online course as there isn’t a teacher that you can directly communicate with unless going through the troubles of emailing. I however did not feel the need to email for further help as the course was perfectly worded and easy to follow. Definitely a yes from me.

After a careful research about the best TEFL certificate providers, I found the TEFL ACADEMY COURSE. I believe its contents and online platform are brilliantly structured. Through this 120-hour course I have learnt new interesting approaches that will allow me to be a better English teacher than before!

I have just completed the 120 hour TEFL course. I am an experienced teacher so did not do the weekend course, as advised when I rang the academy. I have been most impressed by the professionalism of the company and the rigour of the assessments. To be honest, I did find the course far more challenging than I expected!
I may be one of the oldest trainees at 66 and a granny, but I was looking for intellectual challenge and the possibility of doing some private tuition. I was also very keen to do as well as I possibly could as my family followed my progress! Achieving a distinction meant a lot after a very successful and enjoyable career preparing secondary pupils for their examinations. I was so keen I took my laptop to New York to continue the modules when my grandson was asleep!
I think this is a great course for students to do. It means they can travel the world whilst earning a living. This may not be appropriate for me but I hope to use the expertise and knowledge gained to help immigrants to improve their English and, therefore, their quality of life.

It has been the best investment I have ever done. This course is amazing: fully furnished, it has helped me to learn how to teach English, with a real technique, simple and easy. I have practice a lot during the course and I still use it with my students. They love it and are getting better and better every day. It’s a pleasure to feel this sensation. I have wrote in a book the principal directive of the course and I give an eye on it when needed.
I suggest everyone who is thinking about teaching English to follow this course, even if they don’t have many practice. The secret is the motivation and to follow all step of each module. You won’t regret it, be sure, you will be more than happy at the end.
I’m French, English is not my first language, and this was a challenge for me. I’m so happy today. Thanks a lot TEFL Academy!

I HAVE SPENT MANY YEARS WONDERING IF I HAD THE ABILITY TO TEACH ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE AND TOOK THE PLUNGE TO FIND OUT BY SIGNING UP TO THE TEFL 120 HOUR COURSE . I CAN SAY ,HAVING COMPLETED THE COURSE RECENTLY THAT IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE FOR THE BEST.
I FOUND THE COURSE CHALLENGING AND SATISFYING LEAVING ME WITH A REAL SENSE OF HAVING ACHIEVED SOMETHING WORTHWHILE AND A RENEWED BELIEF IN MY ABILITIES TO TAKE ON NEW CHALLENGES .
THE COURSE CONTENT COVERED EVERYTHING I IMAGINED IT SHOULD AND MORE AND ALL OF THE MODULES WERE PRESENTED IN SUCH A WAY AS TO LEAVE ME EAGER TO DO FOLLOW UP ACTIVITES OF MY OWN . THE IDEAS WERE PRESENTED IN CLEAR EASY TO UNDERSTAND LANGUAGE WITHOUT ANY “DUMBING DOWN”.

THE ASSIGNMENTS WERE VERY TESTING AND IM PLEASED THAT THEY WERE BECAUSE I FELT WHILST DOING THEM THAT I WAS BEING CALLED UPON TO PUT EVERYTHING ID LEARNED OVER ALL 10 MODULES INTO PRACTISE .
I WOULD HAPPILY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE FOR ANYONE WHO LOVES LANGUAGE ,LOVES LEARNING AND FACING CHALLENGES .

The course content is thorough, explained well and modules set out well. The practical component was excellent. We had the most fantastic facilitator (Luan) in Cape Town. She was very inspiring and motivating. Course feedback is quick and comprehensive. This course has made me feel competent and confident as a teacher, and I look forward to this new career venture!

I’ve been looking for a good TEFL course for a long time and finally I found it.This course is very well structured. I really enjoyed studying each module.After each module there are links to very useful resources so that I can use it in my work.
I also want to mention the way that they use to check the understanding of each module.You must pass the test and you are really limited in time. So no cheating (which was a tremendous motivation for me :D)
The end of course assignments were difficult but still very important and
the feedback was constructive and useful.
I am so happy that I chose the TEFL academy and I highly recommend this course to everyone!

I did this course alongside my 2nd year university studies and I have been so impressed. The 20 hour weekend course was hugely beneficial and I gained a lot of knowledge which came in useful throughout the course, but particularly the end of test assignments. I would definitely recommend doing the 120 hours, which for me wasn’t at all too much to do alongside my studies. The feedback was great and I think its a brilliant qualification and I’m looking forward to using it to find a job in my gap year after university. I would recommend doing this course to anybody.

The course was very thorough and covered most aspects of grammar. While it would have been better to have covered more grammar and how to teach it, there is only so much you can do in 120 hours and I felt the course made a good job of the time available. I felt the feedback for assignments was good but could have been a bit more detailed perhaps. However, once again, I appreciate there is only so much time available. The website is well-structured and the assignments clearly explained. All in all, a very professional setup.

Taking the TEFL course was the best investment I ever made. It is a fantastic course and really inexpensive as it can bring so much more in return.
I took longer than the 6mths to finish the course as I had a family bereavement, I lost about 3mths but the academy kindly allowed me to pay a small fee to extend the course so I could finish in time.
I found the teachers comments (Daniel Horlock) really invaluable and I could not have completed my assignments without his help. All the staff were friendly and answered all my queries same day or withing 2 days, they really do want you to succeed.
Being 58 I hadn’t done grammar for many years and I struggled with the course, I had to do every single module twice along with the assignments because I tried to rush them. I found module 3 the grammar module the most difficult, longest and the most challenging. The great thing about the modules is that if you fail and have to redo them you can look at your answers to see which ones you got wrong, contrary to other comments where they say its not possible because it is. I was able to click on my answers, make a note of which I got right and then just concentrate on the ones which were wrong. It saved me a lot of time doing the second submission as I already had the correct answers and just put in the ones that I had gotten wrong.
For the assignments I found one easier than no.2 but I would recommend you put in a lot of grammar multiple choice questions and missing gap exercises along with true or false questions as they seemed to like these. Make sure you write exactly what they ask for in the assignment as I went off on a tangent with my second but the examiner helped me get on track with great advice. I would say if you weren’t British you would need a good knowledge of grammar to be able to pass this but there is an amazing amount of great information out there on google so if I got stuck I just put in the search box what I needed to find, I could not have completed this course without the examiner or google.
I am teaching in Italy and the TEFL course was an amazing tool for me and invaluable all for £120, incredible and I can now teach TEFL anywhere in the world, that is a great achievement at 58!

The course was an extremely enjoyable challenge! A lot of information and good direction throughout the modules with lots of external references and research ideas. Though large it was all manageable and the ability to do it online as and when you wanted was a great help. The classroom weekend was a bit daunting, i would recommend doing this once you have done most of the course as i was out of my depth in the class There wasn’t any real teaching experience as you with with your piers but this was made clear beforehand so i wouldn’t see it as a negative pont.

The course materials and resources are more than sufficient and simple to follow, I do not have a teaching degree but while doing this course i was able tp help a friend who is currently studying towards a teaching degree with her assignments and studying towards tests with the knowledge I’ve gained from this course. Thank you The TEFL Academy, your course opens up more than just TEFL doors and that I appreciate. Best of luck to all doing this course. I will definitely be recommending it to anyone who would like a career in TEFL.😊

I’ve heard of TEFL in 2012, never did it due to the thought of it been some online scam. Not so long ago I was told about it again and then met people that did the TEFL course and have gone all over the world and online. Not one of them will change it for the world.

I, myself doing Higher Grade English back at school, have learnt so much more in the course than what I did at school. The explications, the content, tests, self help pdf and the overall TEFL course is well planned. The way it’s broken up so the students won’t be overwhelmed with so much reading content was most probably the biggest plus for me.

I would recommend that everyone takes the chance to do the course, my examiner gave back such awesome feed back, pointing out where I went astray and how to fix the problem. Giving me even more confidents to move onto the next assignment.

Thank you TEFL for this opportunity and such a great course. I look forward to doing the CELTA course.

This tefl course was recommended to me by a friend, I was assured by her that I wouldn’t need any other qualifications as this had been a barrier I had come up against alot. This course has given me the confidence in the academic world in which I had lost. This has now opened up so many new doors for me and shown that you don’t need tip top gcse’s or college grades to succeed in something you find very interesting and want to do.

I cant thank everyone at the tefl academy enough for this amazing life experience they have given to me! Epically Debbi the course instructor on my 20 hour classroom weekend course in Exeter.

Again I can not express my gratitude to the tefl academy foe this life changing experience!

Thankyou amber remony price

I’ve heard of the TEFL course a few years back and had wanted to do it since. I finally got down to booking my place in December last year for the 120 hour course.

I would recommend the 120 hour course for anyone who does not have a teaching background. The online modules and activities provided a good base of what is required from a TEFL teacher from learning how to write out a lesson plan to the types of lessons I would have to teach.

But I really enjoyed the weekend class, as I feel that it brought the theory to life. The best part of the weekend course was actually having to put together a lesson plan and teach it to the class. It is an experience I will never forget.

I also, really appreciated that the lecturer did not sugarcoat the experiences that he had on his teaching travels and gave us a real idea of what to expect.

Overall, I am very glad that I had completed the TEFL course and I can’t wait to get my CV out there.

I have just passed the final assignment of the 120 hour course of the TEFL Academy. I am more than happy to have signed in. I was looking for something which could be useful for my career as a teacher plus I wanted to update my knowledge which I had acquired during my studies at the University.
I have come across the Academy and I have found all the materials, lessons and modules well organized, well explained, very clear but nonetheless thorough and accurate.
The fact that any module focused a specific aspect and topic has allowed me to revise the material quite easily and this was really handy when preparing the assignments.
The quality of the course is excellent and the time for correcting the assignments and the feedback received are prove of high professionality and competence. Moreover, the comments on the final papers show that they have been carefully read and evaluated accordingly, thus showing how the TEFL team cares and supports its students.
My compliments and gratitude to the whole organization, hoping to have the opportunity to study again with them for future refreshing courses. I am sorry I did not sign for the plenary course in the Italian location.

I am extremely satisfied with my choice of taking part in the 120 TEFL certificate program offered by The Tefl Academy. The modules were easy to understand, but it would have been extremely helpful to have a pdf copy of all the modules. This is because I had to study where I had no access to the internet, and it got quite difficult at some point. However, I received an incredible amount of support from the Tefl Academy team, and was able to complete the course on time, and with good results! I cannot wait to apply what i have learned so far, in my future career.

I must say I was delighted with the quality of the TEFL academy’s online course, the modules were well varied and interesting, with plenty of further reading and links provided to ensure new teachers could do more research into areas such as lesson planning and conducting a class smoothly. I was impressed that it also went into detail of the history of TEFL and teaching foreign languages practices as it gave backstory to the content of the modules. Overall it had a clear layout and helpful instructions for preparing and uploading assignments, the hardest aspect I found was to learn the phonetic transcriptions of the English characters for those studying English who do not use the Roman script, but I suppose these skills come with practice.

I’ve just completed the 120-hour online TEFL course and can honestly say that I have enjoyed it VERY much!

The course content was excellent and followed in a logical order, covering everything and anything you’d ever need to become an EFL teacher. The tests at the end of each module were designed to properly assess your knowledge, the end-of-course exam was a lovely challenge, and the two assignments I had to submit at the end of the course were the perfect platforms for me to display my knowledge of what I’ve learned during my 5 months with the academy.

I was lucky to have received feedback from Jenny Hardacre when I needed guidance on a thing or two during the course, and her feedback and assistance were excellent and cleared any doubts/uncertainties I had about a topic. This is exactly the thing about The TEFL Academy: you feel like they really care about you and your TEFL journey with them.

I would highly recommend their course to anyone who is interested in gaining thorough TEFL knowledge and know-how. I feel fully equipped and ready to take on my new career as a teacher of English as a foreign language. South Korea, here I come!

There are plenty of references given for all topics which helps when students require further clarification.
Practice teaching obviously wasn’t available for the online only course but every other aspect of the course was first class. Thanks to all the staff at the academy!

A very good course with integrity and good content. Each module of the course ends with a test which reinforces ones understanding of the previous module. The feed back on the end of course assessments was valuable and the assessors gave good pointers where any weak points were discovered. The website itself is well laid out and all information easily accessible throughout the course. The activity workbooks were of great value in that it was a good way of reinforcing understanding by doing the exercises and for keeping personal notes. All in all a very good course with a very reasonable price tag.

I have taken time to get to know the course and the practical sides of the job-as a result, because of the TEFL qualification, I can be confident about the quality of my own teaching and resourcing. A very beneficial course for even the more mature or experienced candidates.
The materials offered to use are second to none, and the contents of the course is very precise, accurate and interesting.
I have been looking forwards to be offered a work placement, and I am assured, that it will happen.Finally, I can say to myself-I CAN teach:)

I wanted to do a TEFL course because I want to start teaching English. Before doing this course I also did an ELE course to teach Spanish as a second language. After comparing the content and the way of teaching of both I have to say that the TEFL course was by far more easy to follow, more concrete and accurate and that I have learned a lot in order to know not only how to teach English skilfully but also how to organize classes and follow-up activities.

It took me a bit less than two months to complete it and I am happy to say that I feel prepared to start a new career.

The lessons are clear and very detailed, the activities cover every aspect and the techniques and examples are designed to help you understand and put into practice what you learn. Even if English is not your first language (as in my case) the course is easy to follow.

I highly recommend it. As I finished it very recently, I cannot give feedback on how easy is to find a job showing the certificate, because I am still waiting for it to come home.

I have just completed my 120 hour tefl course and am very and satisfied with the course. I felt the information provided and the structure of the course made it easy for me to follow and understand and has given me enough confidence and knowledge to feel I am able to teach adequately. The feedback from the tutors was also very helpful and informative. I highly recommend this course.

I started my TEFL 120 hour course in November of 2016 however due to work commitments I wasn’t able to actually start it until late February/March of the following year. The 2 day weekend class we had to attend was very informative and I thought this prepared me a whole lot better to complete the online course. It gave me the confidence to believe that despite no previous teaching experience, I could actually go into a classroom and begin teaching students.
I tried to dedicate a lot of time to the online course taking notes in my notebook of important points that were highlighted and making a record of these. Looking back on it now the course is very easy to complete within the 6 month period and realistically can be done within 4-6 weeks if you have the free time. The assignments took me a little longer as I was focussing on attaining a strong grade!
All the information contained in each module is way more than sufficient to be able to complete the course successfully. In fact, I learned a lot about English through this course( I am a native speaker) but it highlighted key terms e.g. Verb phrases,modal verbs, that we use in our everyday speech but may not realise why we use them!
The tests at the end of the modules were very good! My only criticism of some of the questions in particular tests is that they weren’t worded fantastic which made answers to particular questions unclear. It would be also helpful if solutions to the wrong answers were given. I could not find the solutions to some of the questions & could not see the reasoning why some of my answers were wrong. However, overall the tests were a perfect assessment of the modules & were tricky enough so you had to dedicate time to revise the topics!
The range of the modules taught was well more than sufficient and, in my opinion, were perfect to preparing someone to be a teacher. The modules dealt with Grammar, how to teach vocabulary, reading, writing etc. They had a lot of information which was useful and sufficient to pass the tests with high marks. They were not overly long and the activities helped to reinforce teaching points highlighted previously!
I would suggest that their is more time or emphasis put into planning lessons because I felt that there wasn’t a whole lot of information to help you when it came to planning linked lessons. I think maybe a few more examples for planning lessons would be helpful and prepare new teachers better.
Overall, I really enjoyed the course and I honestly felt I accomplished something by completing it. I feel really confident to go out and teach students of whatever level and be able to do so successfully! I would recommend this course to anyone and everyone as it can open up a world of opportunities.

I came across The TEFL Academy’s course last year in December when my partner and I decided we wanted to go traveling, and I will be teaching while he does what he does.

The course was greatly priced, and overall I think it is your money’s worth. It contains everything you might need and gives a wide scope of what you will encounter during your classes, what types of students you might come across, and also gives great advice for further reading.

I started teaching while I was studying for my TEFL, and I must say this was the best way for me to have grasped the worked entirely. Everyone has their own way of doing a course and to complete it, but for me, it was interactive because I was able to apply what I have learnt from the course material in practical classes. If there was anything I did not know or was too shy to ask other teachers about, I would conveniently turn to my TEFL Academy ‘handbook’.

The assignments at the end of the course are fantastic because you are able to take what you have learnt and to put it to use, and to see where and what you are capable of delivering in a real-life class setting. This taught me the values of proper lesson planning and how to prepare for a class based on students’ needs.

Furthermore, I was extremely happy with the feedback I received from my marker. It was straight to the point and it clarified exactly what I needed to do in order to achieve my teaching goals.

Overall, I am impressed with the material and the course and I would definitely suggest it for anyone who is considering a career in this industry. You will not be disappointed!

I have just completed my TEFL Combined 120h Course and I must say I was very satisfied with it. Although I was a little skeptical at first, I have had a good educational experience where I have truly learnt some things to help me be a good English teacher. It was a little harder than expected at times, so I was pleased by that, because it meant I had to make an actual effort to learn and move forward. The assignments were interesting and very practical towards preparing lessons. The intense 20h workshop over the course of a weekend was a great experience, with a lot of practice of the theory learnt so far online. Overall I would (and I already did) recommend it to others.

First of all, I am happy that I signed up my TEFL course with The TEFL Academy. Because I am fully satisfied with their course content construction and planning of modules teaching and the exams. As you see, there are a lot of great reviews for this organization and they are holding and maintaining the reputation.

And another important aspect is that it is really helpful for non-native speakers like me. Because I had a doubt about pursuing the course. But in the end, I have completed the course with Distinction grade. So I would suggest all the non-native speakers pursue their TEFL with this organization.

The TEFL Academy’s best quality is their outstanding service. Their website includes everything you need to know, but they are always ready to provide you with any information or guidance you will need about or during the course, and the staff is really friendly. That is something rare to find these days, especially with online education institutions. The school is very serious about the teacher’s integrity and do not tolerate plagiarism. I appreciate this, and I am very impressed with the standard the school has set.

Regarding the course, it covers everything! I’ve learned so much about lesson planning, the different types/approaches of teaching, situations you’ll find yourself in, etc. They teach you the four skills and language components, and they really help you if you need to brush up on your grammar.

I love their webpage, but I have only one problem with the job board. There are many job openings for those who have a degree, but not many for those who don’t possess a degree. It is very possible for those with no degree to find a job as a TEFL teacher (in some countries), and the academy has provided a chart explaining countries who will most likely accept you without a degree, which I of course appreciate, but I wish more jobs will be posted for those without a degree. I also would love it if there were a section explaining why certain countries prefer a degree, and how the visas are related to it.

Nevertheless, my overall experience with the TEFL Academy was very rewarding and pleasant, with excellent course material and friendly service. I highly recommend them.

I have just finished the 120 hour online course. I started it in March and to be fair because I was able to devote quite a lot of daily hours to it, it hasn’t taken me very long to complete. It was way harder than expected, which is probably a good thing. I left school nearly 30 years ago and although my first career included small children it never covered teaching. I found the grammar lessons and tests very difficult and that showed in my results, I passed but not as well as I passed the other elements. I had to research a lot of the grammar points online as I don’t feel the course went in to enough detail for someone who hasn’t studied grammar for so long. It does state clearly during the course that most English lessons wouldn’t go into so much detail but I felt I needed to understand something that I was potentially going to be asked questions on to be fair to any students. Even as I begin my first job I feel that I will always have to be thoroughly prepared for any lessons containing potential grammar points. The rest of the modules were interesting, they seemed to cover everything else, with only a little research required for some. It was good that you knew your test results once you had finished and could not progress until you had a high enough percentage. When it came to the final assignments I found both fairly time consuming and taxing. I did have to email requesting they be marked on both assignments as this does seem to take a while, but the feed back was excellent and worth having. I would and have recommended this course to others.

I would like to recommend this course to people who are still not sure which course is the right one for them. Everything related to this TEFL course is very well explained, simple to understand and follow.
Each module is very useful for your upcoming job in teaching. End of module tests check your knowledge and understanding of that content. Assignments 1 and 2 are the real piece of practice teachers will need in their job for sure.

After completing my online TEFL course I felt confident that I could offer qualitative help when volunteering as an English teacher in Vietnam. The course guides the pupil through all main aspects of the English language and how best to teach them. I would recommend the online TEFL course to anyone embarking on a profession or activity that reqiures an acute understanding of the English language and how to make learning it an engaging and fun experience!

Pros
Website is well set up, easy to follow.
Modules flow, they are interesting and engaging and automated marking system makes it easy to get through them quickly.
Assignments are well designed and all information for how to complete them can be found in the modules, so you don’t feel overwhelmed or like you’re drowning.

Cons
Marking for the assignments can be slow, but the quality of feedback was high so it does balance out.
Some modules can be overwhelming and throw out way too much information at once, the Grammar module especially. Maybe it can be broken up into two.
These are minor quibbles, and overall the course was excellent and great value for money.

I have to say I really enjoyed both courses that I did through The TEFL Academy – Intensive TEFL Course and The TEFL Academy TEFL Course (120 Hours). I definitely recommend The TEFL Academy courses to those who may have been considering taking them but haven’t had a chance to do so yet.
Apart from guidance received from the tutors which made the whole process of completing the course a lot easier there’s so much fun! I still remember the people that I met at the Intensive TEFL Course. So many different nationalities, cultures etc.
I really appreciate additional instructions and comments received from the tutors throughout the course. I will be definitely recommending the TEFL Academy to my friends!

Having just completed this course, i can say that it was well worth it. I applied for an extension for my course as i was already out in India teaching in a voluntary placement. I feel i wouldn’t have had the confidence to do that if the course had not been so thorough and i learnt so much from it. I use what i learnt every day and i use it to plan lessons for children and consider how best to teach them.

Initially the course was harder than i was anticipating but in a positive way, as i felt there was a real focus on teaching people to become the best TEFL teachers they could, rather than simply getting people through the course.

The practical weekend was fantastic and it was very helpful meeting other people in a similar situation to myself and i feel it really enhanced my learning. I’m still in touch with some people from my weekend and so it was a wonderful opportunity to build a support network because teaching in another country is not easy and it helps to have those connections. The practical weekend was especially beneficial as it focused a lot on the grammar aspect, which for me was a big hurdle but made a lot more sense after this weekend.

I found the online material easy to read and kept in bite size chunks so that you didn’t feel overwhelmed. The information was all relevant and taught at a level that was easy to understand so you didn’t feel weighed down by it all. The only module that seemed particularly hard going was module 3 which was very long but then it had to be as that was the grammar module.

Overall a great course and i’m glad i picked this one as i feel comfortable and confident using what have been taught.

I have just completed the TEFL course and cannot recommend it highly enough! The tutors were incredibly ‘patient’ and professional in responding to my many queries and I cannot thank them enough. I am not a 25 year old wanting to travel and work overseas – been there, done that – but dearly want to teach English online here in Australia.

The course itself was more comprehensive than I imagined but I learned so much and cannot wait to begin teaching. Everything ran smoothly, efficiently and professionally. THANK YOU so much TEFL! 🙂 🙂

I am really impressed with the 120 hour online course which I did through The TEFL Academy. Initially, I was a little bit skeptical as to how well an entirely-theoretical course could prepare me for a practical job such as teaching, but my worries were soon put to rest. The course content often draws your attention towards thinking of a real-life scenario and you find yourself, as a student, envisioning exactly what it would be like in the classroom environment.
The content is intense but laid out in a way that is easy to work through and very comprehensible. The tests were a good way to solidify the knowledge acquired in each module.
I also found it really refreshing to be able to work through the course at my own pace and with my own personal time constraints.
The feedback I received for assignments was very helpful and I was impressed by its depth. I really appreciated the advice and corrections.
Contacting the TEFL Academy for whatever reason was really pleasant as the people are very supportive and understanding.
I really enjoyed my interaction with this institution and would highly recommend it to others. I am so excited for what is in store now that I have my certificate!

I recently completed my course and I found that overall it was a well laid out and easy to follow course. I found the modules were easy to folow and highly relevant and educational. I liked that I could work at my own pace which allowed me to complete my course in 6 weeks! Both the final test and assignments were great, as they covered the modules and also allowed me to “practice” what I’d learnt. The feedback from the teachers were great and helpful.

The reason I gave a 2-Star rating in the Job Placement category is that while The TEFL Academy does provide a listing of many job opportunities available in the UK as well as all over the world, I enrolled in the course with the intention of teaching in Germany. This is in no way the fault of The TEFL Academy, but many language schools in Germany prefer teachers with a CELTA cert. over those with a TEFL cert. Nevertheless, with determination and effort one can find work as a TEFL instructor in Germany with a certification from The TEFL Academy. I would recommend looking into what the preferred type of certification/education level is for the specific country you would like to teach in before enrolling.

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my decision to receive a TEFL Certification through The TEFL Academy, due to both the convenience that the online aspect of the course provides along with the unbelievable value at which students receive their certification (I paid €200 whereas people I know who took face-to-face courses at other TEFL schools paid €1000+). All of the information covered in the course as well as the detailed and professional feedback from the tutors truly gave me the knowledge and tools that I needed to work as a TEFL Instructor. The instructor for the face-to-face weekend course was extremely knowledgeable and well-experienced, having worked in Germany as an English Teacher for over 12 years. She also provided very specific insights into how to go about finding work as an English teacher in Germany, without which I would not have found my current job. She also provided extremely helpful feedback during our time spent practicing teaching, although students only receive this practice during the weekend course, so if you have zero teaching experience and want a course that focuses on practicing teaching, you may want to look into other options. In conclusion, if you are confident when speaking in front of groups and determined to put in the effort to become an English teacher. I highly recommend this course!

I have just completed the 120 hour TEFL academy course and would highly recommend this course to anyone interested. The course consists of 20 hours face to face with an instructor and the remaining 100 hours online. The 20 hours in classroom were amazing, I met some fantastic people, learnt so much and really felt confident in moving forward to the online section of the course. The online section of the course is broken down into 10 easy to follow modules including lesson plans, essays and a grammar test. After every module I completed the feedback was informative and constructive. I am so happy that I chose the TEFL academy and their ongoing support has been outstanding.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my TEFL course I chose 120 hours including class room training. My instructor Mark was amazing , enthusiastic, patient and an excellent teacher!
The assignments at the end I found challenging but had great scores for both so I obviously know a lot more than I think. I would fell nervous going into a class room as I think the end of topic tests are a little too easy and because there is multi option answers it makes it fairly easy.
Overall good course and I am currently looking for positions to teach although I am finding they all require 1 years teaching experience which I don’t have! So will have to voulenteer to gain experience.

The instructor was very friendly and clear in her instructions and her encouragement. The modules online were very in-depth and they covered so much material, that I feel really prepared for teaching. The lesson planning assessments have also given me lots of confidence, and they allowed me to be creative and imaginative. The feedback on the assessments was prompt and detailed. A great course!

I have recently completed the 120 hour course and was really impressed with it. At times it challenged me but through this I learnt a lot more, especially on the grammar module. It has really given me a passion for the language and I look at the English language in a completely new way. All the modules were easy to follow and as I said before very informative. The 20 hour session with the instructor was really enjoyable and it was a great opportunity to meet others on the same journey. Its the first online course I have taken and I would happily recommend it to anyone. ( I have already) The last 2 assignments were challenging but put everything you have learnt on the way into practice, the feedback was constructive and useful. The staff at The TEFL Academy are lovely and respond to any questions or queries almost immediately. It was hard work at times but well worth it and I really enjoyed the course. Thank you.

I compared TEFL/EFL courses online and noted about nothing negative about the TEFL Acadamy’s reviews. I was pleasantly surprised with the online material, it covers every aspect of teaching a language. The instructions were clear and easy to use. The 20 hour course was interesting and fun. Yohan was very informative. I would suggest that a student must first complete the online version and then do the 20 hours In the 20 hours you must let the students spend more time practicing teaching and doing lesson plans. Too much time was spent on grammar, classroom management etc wich are all covered in detail in the online version.. The venue was in a very bad spot in Pretoria near the station. We did not feel very safe there. Overall I did enjoy it and found it very informative. I would recommend this course to anyone.

The instructors marked my assignments quickly and efficiently, giving me lots of helpful feedback and advice. After completing the course I feel extremely confident that I can now design a lesson plan that covers any topic and teach it to any group of English learners. I really can’t find any fault with the course, it’s well worth completing the course.

I began searching for possible TEFL courses to take when I found myself falling in love with travel and being overseas. I did lots of googling, and the TEFL Academy website stood out above the others for being much clearer about what they provided and what you would get from it. The courses also happened to be 50% off at the time I was looking, but even the full price was very reasonable. The main thing that attracted me was the fact that the 120-hour course is done fully online with no time in a classroom. Obviously this also has disadvantages as you don’t get to apply what you’ve learned practically, so it’s good that they also offer a course with some classroom time included, but working full-time meant that I would not have been able to fit in classroom sessions, and would therefore never have bothered doing the course.

I really enjoyed the layout and content of the modules, especially the grammar ones. I find grammar so much fun, and could have continued studying that for twice as long! The course is very structured, which appeals to my learning style, and it’s always easy to see where you’re at in relation to the whole course, and how much you still have to do. I liked having the option of contacting a tutor with queries, which I did a couple of times, and mostly got very quick and helpful replies. There were a couple of things in the module tests that annoyed me because I thought my answers were correct, but the computer obviously needed something more specific. With one of them I did actually write to a tutor and ask for my grade to be adjusted, because I knew there was no way my answer was wrong, and they were happy to do that once I explained.
It took me about 3 months to complete the course, which was longer than I was hoping, but as I said earlier, I work full-time and have a very busy lifestyle, so there were some weeks when I didn’t manage to do any work on it at all. It is good to have a six-month time limit, as that gives you incentive to get it done.
Overall I am really pleased with my experience with the TEFL Academy. I have not yet received my certificate, but assume I will with no problems. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course to anyone considering getting a TEFL qualification.

I started off with apprehension, thinking that because it is an on-line course, I would have difficulty getting to do the tests without guidance from a live person. However, I found the pace very well suited to me, being in full time employment and could only devote a couple of hours in the evening.
The tests were completed very successfully and I had the confidence to tackle the assignments. These assignments were there to put all the pieces together. I had to visualize myself in a classroom and how would I present a lesson. I found success and I am very glad I chose this program. I now look forward to my first placement and put to practice what I learned.

The TEFL Academy exceeded all of my expectations for an online TEFL course. The coursework was challenging and very in-depth. It provided me with a great foundation that allowed me the expertise to complete the exams and the end-of-the-course assessments. On the couple of occasions that I had to contact a tutor for information, they responded appropriately and gave me the guidance that I needed. If anyone is looking for a reputable company that delivers on all of its promises, the TEFL Academy is the place to go.

I had a great time with this course, although it proved much harder than I expected. I would say it took me closer to 500 hours than 200, though I was aiming for a distinction, which I achieved. The quality of the content was great, the way it was structure and the way the website worked were also great.
The only thing that could be improved about the actual course would be the addition of a linking index; during revision it was time-consuming to try and read through whole modules finding a page that mentioned a specific aspect.
As for the 2 days teaching practice, this was intense and gratifying. I don’t think it could have been better, save for the lack of tea/coffee/get to know you session, which made it a bit frostier than I expected, hence the 4 stars for this aspect of the course.

I was hesitant at first to complete the TEFL course online as I was concerned about the amount of support I will have. However I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of information provided in the course introduction. Before starting your course you there are introductory videos and information to explain how the course runs. I needed to get in contact with The TEFL academy a few times and they were answered me within 24 hours and were a huge help. I completely recommend this course for those who need a flexible course or for those who have other commitments, the course content is excellent. Before starting the course I was not confident in teaching grammar, however now I have finished I am more than confident in teaching all areas of English.

I have just completed the 120 hrs online course with the TEFL Academy and I would say it was an overwhelming, positive and educative experience. The course is well structured, easy to follow, interesting and quite understandable. Even for a person who is technologically challenged, the course is easy to follow.
The assignments at the end of the course were challenging but interesting at the same time. They test everything that has has been dealt with throughout the whole course and really assess if you did really understand.

I have been teaching for a number of years, but this course has taught me easy understandable methods and strategies one would use to make teaching and learning easier and interesting.It has has revived me and developed me.
I feel so confident to call myself a EFL teacher and I can teach anywhere in the world. I would recommend it to any teacher who is teaching English.

The TEFL videos are exceptionally informative and educative. They helped me a lot guided me when I was dealing with the assignments.

I would like to thank the TEFL Academy staff from all the departments and share my gratitude for their diligent work.
Tutors are professional and hands on.They respond to the opened tickets
and give positive feedback.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!

I really enjoyed the TEFL course (combined online and 120 hour classroom time) and realised how little of the English grammar I actually know or perhaps forgotten throughout the years. It was very useful and informative and I learned a lot. The modules weren’t too long or tedious and you are given more than enough time to complete this course. Three months was more than enough time for me, although you are given 6 months to complete it. The 120hr class time is very enjoyable and opened my eyes as to how hard foreigners must find learning the English language. We were given many good tips to consider when teaching and the instructor was professional and knowledgeable and made the lesson fun. If you are doubtful like I was then do not think twice and go ahead with this course. It’s a useful course even if you don’t end up teaching. The certificate is good to have for the future especially if you would like to work abroad for a change.

My initial reason for taking a TEFL course was to use the qualification to teach abroad. This I achieved and taught conversational English in Japan, however, the course gave me so much more than this. I learnt a great many things about language learning generally and English learning specifically and genuinely enjoyed the course for my own development, and not just for the purpose of finding a job. The offline face-to-face aspect of the course was really enjoyable and made me feel more confident to start the online training. There were plenty of exercises throughout the course which made me consider how language learners feel and think and how teaching would need to accommodate this. The final assessments were suitably challenging and very enjoyable and I felt a huge sense of achievement on completing the course. If in any doubt as to whether or not to do a TEFL qualification I would say definitely do it, you never know when it might come in use!

The TEFL course was the first course that I have completed online and didn’t really know what to expect. My reasons for taking the 120 hour course was to finally return back to Spain to follow my love of teaching English but with some accreditation. I spent 3 years teaching in an academy in the south of Spain but I knew that the teaching methods that were used didn’t seem to work nor did the students progress, for this reason I was so delighted with the course, because it answered every question I had as to why the students didn’t progress and why they were not focused, not only did it bring to light all my doubts but answered them in such a detailed way that now I feel extremely confident that i can return and really teach Spanish students in a productive and dynamic way.
The presentation of the course is superb, the moduals are so well presented, interesting, easy to follow and concentrated as well as being accurate. The assignments really tested what I had learnt throughout the course and more, i’m not sure if others who have done the course may think the same as me but, the assignments not only covered what you had learnt on the the course but also made you look for and use a vast amount resources from the internet which in turn found 1000,000 interesting and useful other things!
I would also like to thank the online staff and examiners, the feed back was exceptional!

This course was really good because it provided me flexibility with my work schedule. The final two assignments was a big step up from the other modules, a lot harder but I finally manage to get a good grade in the end. I can finally pursue something I like with the certificate that i obtained. I would recommend this course to anyone willing to have a change in career pathway which is always not too late.

I have just completed the 120-hour online course with TEFL Academy and judge it to have been an outstandingly positive personal experience. At first I was concerned about whether I would manage the online learning approach to course delivery. It was my first experience of this type of learning. However, I needn’t have worried at all! The materials were excellent throughout. The language used was so clear even when explaining complex ideas. Some modules (eg the grammar modules) took me a lot longer to complete than others. The module workbooks gave me plenty of opportunities to engage in active learning and there was helpful online feedback for the workbook activities. I found myself looking forward to the time I had set aside for studying! Although the online tests were challenging, they were fair and reflected the module content. It was motivating to get the results of each test immediately it had been completed. The content was wide ranging and varied in the way it was presented. The structure of the course was geared very much to the learner, with important topics revisited in different modules. The end of course assignments were really challenging but relevant, and the tutor feedback was detailed and constructive. Despite initial anxieties, the course ended up suiting me very well because I could work in my own time and at my own pace throughout. I had good tutor support through the e-ticket system. All in all, I really enjoyed the course and I now have a potentially life changing qualification! The course is truly excellent value from many different perspectives and I would definitely recommend it to others.

After feeling quite hesitant in studying TEFL, i decided to clear my mind in hope of a better opportunity and booked with the TEFL Academy.

The 20 hour intensive course was very informative, fun and very extremely easy to adapt to. The weekend course agenda made me want to quit!, but the tutor was very friendly and made the course seem like a walk inthe park.

The online course was very easy to follow and plenty of aspects of teaching were explained thoroughly.

All in all, if you’re thinking of studying TEFL, be sure to use the TEFL Academy. It’s fun, helpful and very beneficial!

I’ve been teaching for 4 years but this is the first time that I see clearly that teaching isn’t something abstract or intuitive. There are certain best practices and strategies that must be followed, which can make teaching effective. I definitely benefited from it, and my students are going to be benefited even more!

The TEFL Academy exceeded my expectations in as far as teaching the teacher of English as a second language is concerned. The content, structure and administration of the course is a well organised mentoring program for a serious budding TEFL teacher. The very method they train you to use is the method they use for instruction and this proves the efficacy of the same. Going through the course in the way the mentors advise not only yields good test marks but it also ensures one learns more and will have more to impart to future students. The end of course assignments are a great challenge to one’s grasp of the taught concepts and call for application of most of the key concepts making them an enriching tool for one looking foward to teaching for the first time. The instructor’s guidance and comments at the end of each assignment open one’s eyes to aspects one will have overlooked hence adding value. The teaching practice is an appropriate launch into the world of teaching to the uninitiated and can reveal the teacher in you that was perhaps lying dormant. Overall the course was an enjoyable journey into being equiped with the neccessary ammunition of knowledge and methods of effective language teaching. Their jobs board too is very helpful and opens early at the assignments stage such that one starts applying early and hence there is a high chance one can get a job as one finishes the course without delay. I did get a job offer while awaiting my second assignment grading. I would unreservedly recommend The TEFL Academy to anyone searching for a well organised academy to train with.
