Review of The TEFL Academy

I had a great experience with The Tefl Academy. I found the course very relevant and concise. The activities in each unit of the online section were very helpful to understand the content being taught. I particularly enjoyed the 20 hours face to face part of the course which I was initially dreading. It was extremely helpful and the teaching practice was good to get a feel for actual teaching. I would highly recommend this course and it’s doable in 4-6 weeks.

I decided to take the TEFL 120 course so that I could travel whilst making a bit of money and doing something worthwhile. I started the course in 1016 and due to ill health have only just finished! The team were really supportive and offered help where needed.

Ithe course was really efficient and I am now thinking about going into teaching full time.

I would gladly recommend the course to friends who are thinking about TEFL.

Many thanks for all of the teams help and support during my learning – onwards and upwards from here!

This is the second TEFL course that I have completed with TEFL Academy. I studied the TEFL level 5 course and last year I completed the TEFL 120-hours course.
The TEFL Level 5 (and this also applies to the other course of 120 hours) is well structured, organised, with plenty of exercises that you can recap what you have learned or practice. The assignments are great to practice everything that you have learned and to have an idea how it is in a real classroom (if you do not have teaching experience).
On this course is also given a lot of resources and further reading sources.
I recommend to complete your TEFL courses with TEFL Academy, it is totally worth it.

I decided to do a TEFL course because teaching abroad has been my lifetime ambition and before having discovered the course I hadn`t thought that there was any possibility I would ever do it because I`m not a native English speaker. Now with the TEFL certificate, I can look for a job abroad, which means I`m finally starting to approach my goal.

I chose TEFL Academy and studied their Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs). The course was absolutely great, I enjoyed every minute of it. All the information was clear, substantial and carefully structured, there were lots of interactive practice exercises and links to useful sites and resources. I particularly enjoyed the sections about different approaches to ELT, course planning and using authentical materials.

The unit tests provided opportunities to check what was actually learned and filled me with a sense of achievement. The tree assignments seemed incredibly complex at first and I was really scared and even doubted my ability to complete them, but there were a lot of guidance and detailed explanations for every single task that I actually did everything well and got a Distinction mark, which is still a source of a great joy and excitement for me.

Unfortunately, I didn`t have an opportunity to teach a real class but I`m sure that now I have all the necessary tools to feel confident and well-prepared when I have to do it in my future job.

I gained a lot of knowledge and experience doing this course, and can`t wait for applying for my dream job.

A TEFL certificate is required for teaching in China so I had to do the course. Initially I saw it as just another stumbling block to overcome, but after the first few lessons I started to appreciate the level of the course.

Apart from giving instruction in other disciplines, I had no other teaching experience. The gradual increase in the difficulty level of the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) really helped to gain insight and experience in teaching in general.

The assignments prepare future teachers very well to be able to present and conduct meaningful lessons with different levels of students.

I am not planning to teach ESL but scientific subjects such as mathematics, physics and geography in future. Despite this the course was still very meaningful to me because the basics of lesson plans and vocabulary also apply to these subjects.

Apart from doing a full-time teaching degree or diploma, I consider the TEFL course as the most valuable that I could have done. More experience will obviously be gained as I dig into the methodology of teaching, but at least a firm foundation was laid by this course.

I have really enjoyed my time with TEFL, I found the course easy to complete and the feedback from my assignments to be very thorough which has helped me gained more knowledge into the world of teaching. I especially love all the opportunities for volunteer work, internships and their daily emails about job placements all over the world!

I have recently completed the Level 5 TEFL Online Course (168 hrs) and I guarantee that this course is a great opportunity to learn more about teaching not only English but also other languages! It was a great experience and I learned a lot of stuff. The modules are very well structured and do not burden you at all. It surely and adequately prepares you to be a descent EFL teacher. I stronly recomment it to anyone who loves teaching.

On my Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs), I was able to work at my own pace and confirm my knowledge at the end of each unit test. In some activities involving ‘drag and drop’ I needed to reduce the text size drastically to fit all onto my screen, so I think a review of those layouts would be beneficial. The instructions for the assignments were very clear and I felt I learned even more when preparing them. The course covered all aspects of teaching English as a foreign language and I feel well equipped for a future in this field.

My Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) experience was overwhelmingly rewarding in terms of the support I got, the abundance of constructive feedback, the guidance, and excellent content. Not only do they teach you the basics, such drawing up a lesson plan, teaching grammar, dealing with monolingual and multilingual classes, etc. But they also teach you behavioral/social skills on how to conduct a class of different cultures, races, age groups in a sensitive manner, which is important if you’re planning on teaching in a different country. Although I enjoyed the liberty of studying online, I also found the 20 hours attendance classes to be quite informative. Overall, great course

As you might guess i did this online course because i want to teach overseas.
I am very satisfied.
The course contained everything you need to know to teach english overseas. If i needed help i got it very fast.
If i made mistakes the tutor told me what to do better next time.

I recommend everyone who wants to teach english overseas
to do his Tefl here.

I feel very satisfied with the content of the course as it provided me with a lot of useful information and resources. I really enjoyed the experience and I can say that I don’t regret taking the decision to do a TEFL course with the TEFL Academy. Even though the assignments were quite challenging, they were quite realistic and helped me to gain confidence and prepare myself to become the best teacher possible. Thank you TEFL Academy, I would definitely recommend this course!

I just completed The TEFL Level 5 Online Course (168 hours). I had a really great experience. Before I signed up with the TEFL Academy I did a lot of research on which company to go with for this TEFL certification. I saw a lot of companies on groupon for a low price but the reviews were not that great. The reviews I saw for The TEFL Academy were all really great and I was not disappointed! I learned so much. The assignments challenged me and I feel like I am now prepared to start a job in this field! Highly recommend!

My overall experience was great. From very informative and experienced teacher during our weekend class to very rich content of the online part. This course does not have teaching practice, that’s why I didn’t rate it and they don’t provide job placement. Although, they help with composing CV and a cover letter and provide you with links with job offers. I am glad I took this Level 5 TEFL course (168 hours).

Having just finished the 165 hour Online TEFL course which I throughly enjoyed this course and would recommended it to anyone.

Having been a teacher for 3 years in England I knew much of the information already however the assignments were challenging and it was beneficial to re hash all I have learnt in a different context. The lessons were accessible and activities engaging. Some of the information was repeated throughout various units however I can understand why. Assignments were varied – creating a 60 minute reading lesson, reviewing a course book – and help was always on hand should I need it.

The course has opened a new door for me as a teacher and I can’t wait to get out there.

I have recently completed the TEFL Academy Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) combined classroom and online teaching. This was a very effective course and the lessons plans utilize a lot of the different methods that were taught which is nice to see and shows the value of what we were taught. The 20hr in person class was especially useful and clarified a lot of the uncertainties that I had with the online portion. The assignments were highly relevant and the feedback was fair with lots of details to help you improve going forward. I found the course did not only prepare me for my future teaching career but also in my current profession now. I have not taken any other curriculum, but I would recommend this course to others.

I found the TEFL course to be be easy to follow, understandable, clear and conconcise. I looked at the other courses online and found the TEFL academy to provide an accredited certification in teaching that was within my budget. The staff were quick to respond and the staff marking the assignments had useful constructive feedback. I would recommend the TEFL academy for anyone looking to get their foot on the TEFL rung and start their language teaching career.

I can honestly say the TEFL Academy’s Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) was one of the best career moves I made. There is a plethora of online courses available, but the pre-course web content and the cost of the course, along with the classroom time was a perfect combination for signing up.
As someone with a full-time job, changing career, I was only able to do serious course work on the weekends, and found the time allocation more than sufficient to get through the work and do revision in some areas.
I started with the classroom sessions and found that having the opportunity to practice brand new skills on peers was both intimidating and hugely rewarding. One cannot fail to be nervous to stand in front of a group of adults and try to teach them an English skill they ‘don’t know’. However, having the immediate feedback from the course instructor provided valuable insight into how one needs to be in a classroom. I think anyone trying to complete a course without classroom time should give this aspect of the course serious consideration.
The online part of the course is very well set out, and guides one along a clearly-defined learning path. There are micro-tests every so often, and each unit culminates in a test before you move on. There is plenty of additional study, i.e. links to external content, all of which is relevant, and often leads one to find many other items of interest and education along the way. It is well-worth clicking every one of those links to increase your knowledge and discovery of the TEFL world.
The assignments are certainly not easy, compared to the end of unit tests. If you want to produce your very best work, consider at least double the time indicated in the course for assignment completion. They test your application of knowledge and require a fair bit of research to complete. However, once you’ve put the first assignment together, the sense of satisfaction is fantastic!
Lastly – the online support from the TEFL Academy was excellent. There were no delays to queries submitted, instructors went out of their way with assistance – especially the grammar sections – and post course feedback and certification was swift and efficient.
I highly recommend this course. It’s a gateway to change your life.

I have completed 168 hours TEFL level 5 course with TEFL Academy. I did learn a lot and I must admit I have found the assignments challenging enough which is good as I had to research and really focus on preparing them, hence I was able to really feel how much work a new teacher would need to place in lesson preparation etc but on the other hand I have gained a confidence that I am able to do it too! The tutors feedback were great and helpful, clearly pointing the areas for improvement.
I did enjoy studying and I really look forward to finding a job as EFL teacher.

I completed my 168 hour course within 4 months of starting the course. I worked while doing the course so it was exciting. The face to face part was done before I started the online course and it gave me insight and a good overview about the course and how the course is structured. Overall I enjoyed the course and it was a good learning experience.

I have recently completed the 120 hr course with distinction and would recommend the TEFL Academy to anyone looking at gaining their TEFL accreditation. Why?
The learning materials were well written, going into lots of detail.
The quality of the tutor support was good – I raised an online ticket to clarify my understanding on one of the grammar modules, and also for some clarification of the task on the final assessments, and these were picked up and answered in a matter of hours. The two final assessments were challenging, but provided a really useful insight into lesson planning and creating your own teaching activities.
I found the weekend classroom methods teaching course invaluable, and a lot of fun.
The customer service was great too: I needed to extend my course as I had been unable to complete within 6 months and working full time. This was no problem, and I was able to do so without any issue, just paying a further £50 to do so. When the 168 hr level 5 course was launched, the team also offered me an upgrade for £50 on my enquiry – sadly this meant I would need to start from scratch and after some tough decision making, decided that the time isn’t right for me at the moment.
Overall, the TEFL Academy course offers high quality teaching, support, and I am pleased, this was great value for money.
The only thing I would like to see is an ability to keep the teaching notes as a pdf or hard copy (unfortunately this isn’t available) – so I have written a ton of notes, but I would have paid a small extra fee for this.

I completed the 120 TEFL course over the course of 5 months while I completed my university undergrad degree. I did the face to face session first, which provided a truly engaging and enjoyable learning environment. My teacher was excellent. Nothing can really prepare one fully for the experience of teaching but the practical component of this course really did get me as close as possible. I also felt doing the practical component benefitted me as I was more able to do the online component. Some of this part felt a little overly repetitive, but I suppose those parts that are repeated are the important ones. I got a teaching job in Vietnam with no difficulty shortly after I started looking.

I just completed the 168 hours level 5 TEFL course through the TEFL-academy. I feel very satisfied with the course content and easy way they presented it. Help was always near if needed.

My initial concern, being in full-time employment, was that I wouldn’t find time sufficient enough to complete a course; however, owing to its entirety being online, The TEFL Academy’s course was perfect for somebody in a position such as myself.
The interactive modules are easy to follow and incredibly informative. I’m a native English speaker, and not only did I learn a huge amount about teaching English as a foreign language, but I also picked up a few rules about the grammar that I hadn’t been taught before! Truthfully, I was expecting to work my way through things that I already knew, and in all honesty this was another concern of mine; that the material would be boring and repetitive. But I was pleasantly surprised and very engaged from start to finish.
There’s so much to take away from it. Since completing the course, my qualification has enabled me to attain a job teaching English abroad, and I don’t think it would’ve been possible without the preparation and support offered by The Academy. I’ve been teaching for a year, and I’m far more confident in my first teaching position now than I was in the beginning. When I started, it was useful to have the interactive modules I’d completed at my disposal, something of a safety net if I needed them, and this is another reason why I must commend The Academy. Even after the course, even without direct contact with anybody, I still feel supported as I aim to better myself as a learning resource for foreign students.
If I had to find one drawback, I’d say that the response time to assignments could be improved, as I found myself waiting a little longer than the 3-5 working days stated, however the feedback I received went above and beyond my expectations, so this really is only a minor con!
I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone and everyone.

The Level Five TEFL course I enrolled in comprised of two elements: a weekend in Newcastle and an 168-hour online course. I was very impressed with the online course for its detail and accessibility for somebody like myself who was completely new to TEFL. The three assessments very all suitably challenging, making the online course feel very much like a worthwhile experience instead of being ‘Mickey Mouse’ like I have heard other TEFL courses to be. The feedback I received on the assessments was very thorough and precise, and made my work feel valued rather than merely getting a ‘one size fits all’ response.

The weekend in Newcastle was likewise an excellent introduction to TEFL with an engaging and affable instructor. The only complaint I have about the weekend is that there was very little emphasis on practice teaching other than twenty or so minutes at the end of the day, that didn’t really give me much of a feel for authentic teaching. As the course was only two days it’s only to be expected that there wasn’t enough time to cover everything in a lot of detail, but I feel practice teaching is an important element that should have had more time allocated towards it.

This complaint aside, the experience of the TEFL Academy comes highly recommended from me.

I have just completed the 120hour TEFL course with the 20 hours in the classroom included and I must say that this course was fantastic. I do think that enrolling in the 20hour classroom session made a huge difference with regard to my understanding of the course. The content of the course was clear and easy to understand with regard to the instructions as well as the feedback received.

There is great support offered and at no point did I feel ‘lost’ or confused in terms of what was required of me to do.

The classroom time was very important and super helpful as it allowed us as the students to ask necessary questions as well as to get hands on practice as if we were teaching.

I would highly recommend the TEFL Academy to anyone looking to teach English !

Thanks for everything !

I finished my 120 hour course and received a distinction. I loved every second of the course. Everything was laid out perfectly for the online section and everything was easy to understand. The 20 hours of in person tuition was one of the best weekends I have spent in a long time. All of the feedback from my tutor was so helpful. Guidance for moving forward, creating a cv and applying for jobs is all there too. I would highly recommend The TEFL Academy to anyone looking to become a TEFL teacher.

I just completed the 120 hour on-line course and I’ve really enjoyed the whole experience. The on-line part of it has been really engaging (and that’s from an e-learning professional!). It’s comprehensive and robust – you really have to learn your stuff and pass the tests to get through to the next module. The weekend face-to-face course was brilliant, our teacher was amazing, so knowledgeable, and she taught us in the style that TEFL promotes – fun and engaging. I also won the prize for ‘acting out an English idiom’ – quite possibly my finest hour!

I have just completed the 120 hours TEFL course. If you are looking to do a TEFL course, do it with The TEFL Academy. The course was well structured, easy to follow and very precise and clear. The Information given was appopriate and easy to digest. I really enjoyed doing the course! Now I am on my way to teach in Vietnam. Thank you TEFL Academy!

I completed the 120 hour online TEFL course and would highly recommend it to anyone who is unsure about which company to do their TEFL training with. The course provided me with a lot of helpful information and resources and I learnt a lot about lesson planning. The assignments were challenging at times but if you put the time and effort in, it is worth it. I am very happy that I chose the TEFL Academy.

I recently completed the Level 5 TEFL course at the TEFL Academy. Overall and within the limits of e-learning solutions, I found it to be an excellent course. It was exactly what I needed to confirm my desire to be an EFL teacher. I found the content clear and interactive, and the assignments challenging, realistic and interesting.
I would, however, have liked to have a more extensive grammar section, but the Level 5 course covers the basics and course learners are free to do additional research on their own.
I would definitely recommend this course to prospective teachers around the world as it provides good theoretical background and practical examples on teaching EFL.

I just finished my 168hours 5 level tefl course and I must say that it’s very well done . It provides all the information a teacher needs and working on it was interesting and appealing at the same time . The assignments were quite challenging but if you take your time , and read carefully all the instruction given , you can make it .

I booked this course with the TEFL Academy after doing some research and I decided that this was the best option as they were a reasonably priced and seemed to have good content. My partner and I already have jobs abroad but we do not have any experience.

The course was simple to understand and complete. The tests within the course facilitated learning and gave me an opportunity to try until I succeeded. The course assignments were time intensive and relatively complex but I feel they do prepare you for real life lesson planning.

There are lots of links and extra reading which I believe will be really helpful in the future.

I am glad I book with The TEFL Academy.

I have learnt so much on the course for the last 5 months and still managed to complete the course despite working full-time. The tutors provided comprehensive feedback on my assignments which was very useful. In addition, the extra resources in the module added on to my learning. I would also like to thank the support staff for their kind and prompt assistance.

Finally, I have passed the TEFL ACADEMY Level 5 TEFL course (168hrs). I found the course to be quite challenging, but it delivered everything I needed to know about teaching English as a foreign language. The online units and activities tests were difficult, but the information provided was of an excellent standard, better than I have seen anywhere else. The assignments were demanding, but I passed all 3 the first time, and I feel much better prepared for the daunting task of teaching after completing it. I also appreciate the positive feedback I received from the tutors. I also found the 20 hour practical course extremely helpful, our tutor Luan was so supportive. The biggest plus though, is the job placement section on TEFL ACADEMY’S website. The support from TEFL Academy was amazing, every support ticket was answered almost immediately. I will not hesitate to enroll with TEFL ACADEMY again if they offer a more advanced course in the future.

I have just completed the Level 5 TEFL course (168-Hour). The course content and learning portal are excellent and make the learning process very smooth. All of my queries and support requests were responded to very promptly.

A stand out feature of this course are the assignments and the lesson planning resources. The assignments give great practical training and the course reader provides the student with all of the resources and information necessary to complete them.

It is clear that this course wants their students to become competent teachers and takes pride in their work. I would highly recommend this TEFL course over the fly-by-night courses out there.

I studied the level 5 TEFL course (168 hours) and really benefited from it. I thought the units were laid out in a clear and comprehensive manner, the instructors gave excellent feedback and the resources provided were extensive. I did feel that the instructions for lesson plans and assignments were a little confusing- however the best thing about this course is the speedy assistance you receive if you have a question. Instructors really went above and beyond with feedback and instructions. Thanks to the course I have now received my first teaching job, teaching exchange students in my home town.

A friend who is a Teacher recommended The TEFL Academy to me.
My background is not teaching. For the last 25 years I have been in Taxation and Accounting. I must confess, I’d never heard of the courses, so obviously researched the various choices available.
However, I’m delighted she suggested The TEFL Academy as it proved to be outstanding and deserving of the high recommendations.

I elected to undertake the combination course of online and 20 hr classroom activities. I would highly recommend this combination as the classroom participation is an invaluable supplementary learning tool to the online modules. I was most impressed by the lecturer, which again enhanced the positive experience I had received from the Support Staff, who were (without exception) extremely helpful and courteous.

It’s also worthy of note about the feedback from the Assessor regarding the penultimate and final Assignments. The feedback was extremely helpful and supportive. I personally found the comments and the encouragement most inspiring and motivating.

In conclusion I highly recommend The TEFL Academy.
The material and support provided has enabled me to learn and understand a completely new work area / Career.

I would like to recommend the TEFL Academy where I studied the Level 5 TEFL Course 168 hours. It is a really amazing course and gives you an opportunity to achieve thorough qualifications recognized all over the world. I would say it is a real world of opportunities. As far as the organization of the course is concerned it is worth noting that you have 6 months (or even more if you request it) to complete the course. The material of particular units is well organised, detailed enough and well selected. The theory which puts emphasis on all aspects of English teaching is accompanied by multiple of different exercises. You have to also submit three assignments which are later marked and discussed by great tutors. After completion of every course unit you have to complete end of the unit test which is automatically graded. The Academy will assist you in finding the job, providing hints on preparation the documents required in the recruitment process in all language schools. In my opinion you will not find a better place where you can study in order to achieve TEFL certificate, so do not hesitate to choose the TEFL Academy.

I have completed a number of online short courses and expected this to be very simple like the rest of them.

To my surprise and delight, this was a very different experience. The materials were extremely comprehensive and the content challenging. I feel that the programme through the TEFL Academy has more than adequately equipped me to make the career change I so desire.

The support received from the TEFL Academy team was superb and assisted greatly in achieving this qualification. The response to any queries was quick and detailed.

I can highly recommend the TEFL Academy as a sound choice when considering embarking on a TEFL programme.

As I work part time I was interested in finding another career which I could fit in with my work. The Tefl level 5 (168 hours) course fitted in well with my part time work. Studying from home whenever I had free time meant that I was able to go at my own pace and fit the course into 5 months.
The 20 hours of group study with a tutor gave opportunity to ask questions and iron out difficulties. The tutor was exceptionally helpful and gave plenty of links to resources.
The online material was easy to follow and covered everything I needed.
However, as I made notes throughout the course and re read pages for assignments, I would have found it easier if the online pages could be numbered. This would have made it much quicker to find relevant information within the units while studying for the three assignments.

I have just completed and passed with distinction the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs).

The course content was excellent. Everything was explained very clearly and concisely. I particularly enjoyed the end of unit tests which were a great way of testing that I’d understood all the concepts in the unit before being able to move onto the next unit.

The very comprehensive guidelines for each assignment submission made creating each assignment much easier because I knew exactly what was expected.

The quality of feedback was excellent as was all communication with the TEFL Academy support staff.

I would recommend this Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs).

firstly I was quite scared of attending my 20 hour face to face class but was put to ease by the most wonderful teacher.
I was pleased to know that I could complete the course in my own time. I also enjoyed the course content as this is so much inspiring and usefull for the end of unit tests.
I do wish that I could’ve gotten my assignment marks back in less time. What I do appreciate is that the information given by the marker of the assignment, when I did not pass, was usefull and helpful.
I loved the Level 5 168 combined TEFL course and would recommend it to anyone.

Firstly I started studying the 120hour TEFL course, and after my 20 hour teaching practical decided to move into the 168 hour course.

The team at tefl made the switch over so effortless and for just a small fee extra my course was upgraded. I was a little overwhelmed by just how much the content had changed, but was thoroughly impressed as to just how much extra I had been given content wise.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found response from the online team has been FANTASTIC! I have learned so much and because of it, it has pushed me to go on to study my degree in teaching.

So, a HUGE thank you to the TEFL team for an amazingly informative and interesting experience! I’ve loved it so much that its pushed me to study further and I look forward to being placed abroad someday!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I am a stay-at-home Mom, mother to 3 beautiful, headstrong girls aged 9, 6 and 1 so making the decision to study something after many years of being home and taking care of the house and family was indeed a challenge! I decided that I wanted to do TEFL because I wanted to study something that would allow me to work from home and now that I have completed the course, I am hoping to teach online and very interested in teaching children. Being able to complete the course online was the perfect option for me.

I completed the Level 5 Tefl course (168 hrs) in 2 months and I found it very intense but I truly enjoyed every module! The grammar sections were a bit challenging but I managed – being able to retake tests and even re-submit your assignments is a big plus.

Whenever I had a question I received a response quickly without long delays. However, when it came to getting our assignments marked, it seemed to take longer than 5 working days and this caused a bit of frustration. I appreciated the feedback from each of my assignments as Im sure this will help me in the future. Designing lesson plans is not as easy as I thought it would be! I spent a lot of time on these assignments in order to make sure that it was suitable for the target audience – not too hard and also not too elementary. I’m sure that it will get better with more experience once I start teaching and can put the theory into practice!

The 2 day course with Judy was fantastic! She was such a good facilitator and made it enjoyable for us. I truly felt like we had all forged lasting friendships after this. The course was very interactive with lots of discussion, debate and team work involved.

All in all, I would recommend this TEFL course to friends and family. I feel really proud of myself having completed it and am now able to embark on a new career path even as a stay-at-home Mom.

When I decided to do a TEFL course I googled for a TEFL course and a few links popped up. As I was busy working at the time I could not take a full class course and decided to do mine part-time. The TEFL academy website was very informative and it laid out the basic course requirements unlike some of the websites I had checked. I also saw it was accredited and the pricing was very cheap compared to others and registered for the course in November 2017 when I wasn’t so busy.

I registered for the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) as I also wanted to get some on hand experience in classroom. Needless to say I had enjoyed the classroom modules as I was exposed to the way of teaching during my two days in the class, as well as learning about the actual TEFL course itself.

The helpline was also very responsive and could help me with my general queries. The online modules were well structured and were simple to understand and read through. The assignment instructions were well laid out as well the requirements for the assignments. I never felt lost and the assignment markers gave informative feedback as to where I was struggling as well as which portion of my assignment I could improve.

Having passed the assignments as well as getting all this feedback I feel it has helped me prepare for the classroom in my teaching role for the near future and I would fully recommend this course to anyone out there who wants to do a TEFL course!

I retired from full time community development and education work in April 2017. I decided I wanted to do something useful but challenging so I signed up for the 120 hour online TEFL course. I was quite nervous as I prefer face to face teaching but online was the best option for me.

The layout of the online modules is very clear with the short video to start and the options to either print off the modules to work from or do all online. I did have a couple of grammar books as back up, and the list of other resources via the net at the end of each module is also useful to help explain any grammar points I was struggling with.

I had to extend my course as we moved house and it took weeks to get the internet installed. This was accommodated.

It is difficult not having a tutor or other students on hand to discuss course content with but I didn’t feel this as much as I anticipated. The ability to work through each module at my own pace was very good. I didn’t need a support ticket until completing an assignment. This was quickly and fully dealt with.

I did have one group session which was useful but I would recommend doing this after at least completing 5 or 6 modules, rather than the 2 I had completed.

I would recommend an online course now as I found this TEFL course well laid out and planned.

The practical work was fun and I was given a lot of useful handouts to assist me in future teaching jobs. I plan to go overseas to teach and The Tefl Academy provided me with excellent information and help with searching for jobs. My enquiries were answered quick and the online course is easy to use as well as interesting and fun. Thank you Tefl Academy for helping me become one step closer to my travel dreams!

I recently completed the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) and found it extremely beneficial.
It provided a lot of detailed information on how to construct a lesson plan and plenty of activities to get comfortable making my own.
The units pertaining to teaching pronunciation, grammar & productive skills were all extremely informative. A review of key grammar rules was a useful refresher and combined with learning how to teach grammar has provided me with a useful tool.
The practice teaching was a good experience. I had a 20 hour classroom lesson as part of the course and it allowed me to conduct two short lessons. This practice was very useful as it gave me the chance to see what was practical and how to grade language effectively. The teaching during this part of the course was also exemplary.
While I cannot attest to the job placement aspect yet, the course does provide many job opportunities through its site as well as external resources for job searching.
Overall it was an extremely informative course and provides a useful feather in my cap.

Honestly the 168 Hr Level 5 TEFL Course is the best ever. I really enjoyed the interactive learning modules. Loved all the personal feedback from the tutors after submitting assignments. There is no doubt in my mind that the instructions I received on the TEFL Course, has contributed immensely to my ability to be able to write lesson plans; and then to use them effectively when teaching children.I really am looking forward to receiving my certificate. I thoroughly enjoyed my course and would happily recommend The TEFL Academy to anyone wishing to do a TEFL course.

I took the Level 5 168 hour TEFL course and it really appealed to me as it was online and easy to access. I enjoyed this course a lot because I found the content relative and the instructions easy to understand. It is very inexpensive compared to other courses but it still has brilliant course material. The site is well designed and easy to use. The material is comprehensive and thorough. This is not a course you will be able to blow though in a couple of weeks without learning something and I took a lot of care when going through everything as not to miss anything out. The assignments are a bit of a challenge and do a really good job of preparing you for what you will be handing should you get a job teaching english. A lot of people will say they got through this course in 6 weeks which is doable especially if you apply yourself. Its such a brilliant opportunity and I plan on using my certificate to travel and each English overseas.

I have really enjoyed my journey with the TEFL academy, and i am proud to say I’m very satisfied with their service both online and during contact hours. I studied the 168 hour course which i just finished recently and i would very much recommend the TEFL Academy to anyone who wishes to study teaching English as a foreign language. Their tutors are very informed and professional, they provided us with a very solid foundation for the online part of the course. This made my online experience very pleasurable. Not only that, the learning portal is user-friendly, well detailed and easy to grasp, it just makes studying amazing. I also loved the content of the course it does mold you into a good teacher in more ways than i expected. To anyone who wishes to go on this journey i strongly recommend the TEFL Academy, you get more value than what you actually pay for, they are very affordable.

Going into the course i was aware of how the theory aspect outweighed the practical guidance and perhaps would have ideally practised more physical teaching as i’m a relatively kin-aesthetic learner however the classroom days i did attend were led by whom i felt to be a fully competent tutor who kept us well informed and was willing to answer any question we had with enthusiasm. Overall , i would highly recommend the TEFL Academy to anyone looking to study to teach English. At the end you are supplied with plenty of resources and excellent guidance on CV writing and finding future employment.

I studied for the the level 5 TEFL course (168 hours online) offered by The TEFL Academy. Undertaking a TEFL course has always been on my ‘to do’ list, as it can open up endless opportunities for graduates with a passion for both teaching and travel. After weeks of research, and asking the illusive question; what TEFL course should I take? It became apparent that The TEFL Academy offered the perfect course for me.

I completed this course in little of 5 weeks, and I was able to do this from the comfort of my own home, as The TEFL Academy offers an online course. I have given an overall rating of 5 stars because this course has given me the foundations to confidently start teaching abroad. The course content covers a wide range of material, and gives you plenty of opportunities to put what you have learnt into practice. The online tests are particularly useful, as this ensures that you have understood previous sections. I found the assessments to be very interesting, and they give you the chance to create your own lesson plans– which you can then use to teach your classes after completing your TEFL. The feedback is very detailed, and individual marks are given to each section. The feedback is generally received 7-10 days after submission, and you can continue to work through the units while awaiting your mark.

The TEFL Academy also offers plenty of support after completing the course. There are many useful links and information that is available after completing the course, and this will help guide you through the process of finding a job overseas. Overall, I would certainly recommend this course to anyone!

I have just finished 120 hour TEFL course. I did quite a lot of research before choosing The TEFL Academy and can say without a doubt that all my expectations were fulfilled. I didn’t expect much but the content was well structured and complete in my opinion. Also the feedback was immediate and extensive. I have thought ESL before a bit in Asia but still the content of the modules contain a lot of very useful information. After this course you won’t struggle with writing a lesson plan.

Having a passion to teach abroad was hindered by not having a TEFL qualification despite having a degree. A friend of mine who is teaching overseas recommended TEFL Academy for me. At first, i thought the online course was just general staff, but i realised it was more than that. I took the level 5 TEFL COURSE (168 hrs) which was highly packed with insights and information regarding how to conduct teaching successfully from onset to finish. I managed to finish my online course within four weeks. To say the least, it wasn’t silver on the platter, i had to work hard in order to pass with good marks. My course mentor was very helpful and timely as she guided me through where i made mistakes. Now, that i am finished, i am ready to work overseas and transfer my knowledge. Thank you TEFL Academy for helping me to open overseas doors. i can recommend TEFL academy to anyone anytime because they offer the best service which is value for money. Another thing i love about TEFL Academy is they help their students for placements and jobs. Anyone who wants to teach overseas, try TEFL academy, you wont regret it.

I just completed the 120 hr. TEFL course and am very pleased with all that I learned from the course. I enrolled for the course expecting to get a general overview of TEFL, but as I completed the modules I was surprised at how much content was introduced. The modules covered a lot of material in a very organized manner, with quizzes and tests given throughout the course to reinforce learning. Although I have both a B.A. and M.S. in Education, I feel like I learned a lot about preparing detailed and interesting lessons, and would suggest giving more practice in lesson planning as part of this course. I would recommend this course not only to students looking to teach overseas, but for anyone who would like to strengthen their English skills and teach English to non-native speakers.

I did the Level 5 TEFL 168 hours online course and it is the best decision I have ever made. Before choosing the TEFL Academy, I did a lot of research online to find the most suitable online organization to do the course with. I thoroughly read through the TEFL Academy’s website and was satisfied with the details provided, hence I proceeded in signing up for the course with no regrets.

Firstly, the course online platform is well structured, organized and very easy to use. The Units are detailed and provides guidance through the short quizzes that are provided throughout the course. The links to materials provided at the end of each Unit was also helpful. The topics covered were relevant. By the end of the course, I felt like I had taught English as a foreign language for years though I have never taught before.

I am now more excited and confident than ever to enter the classroom after doing this course.

Many thanks to the TEFL Academy!!

I liked that you explained all needed. You as well offered additional sources, it helped me a lot in preparing classes. Now when I don’t pressure to finish with all fast, I’ ll go through all course again. I find many useful tips, assignment were not easy to do, but I helped to apply what we’ve learnt to practice. At the end I think I know much more. The only small stuff that stressed me was waiting for mark little bit longer since I have a deadline from boss. Review and help of tutors was great. You could understood they really reviewed it and gave good tips. As well possibilities for jobs, and not high price for course is great studd.

I have just finished the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) online course. I truly enjoyed the course, on my own time, information is clear and I believe it reviews all the basic skills a teacher needs.
The 3 assignments are challenging, but if you take your time, it shouldn’t be a problem to pass them. My only concern was about the grading delay, each time it was late due to a busy period.

I have just completed my TEFL course online (168 hours) . I really enjoyed it . It was very helpful and improved my teaching skills . Before starting it I felt skeptical but I can say that it was the best thing I have done. It is very useful and well structured . I hardly recommend it to everyone.

I took the Level 5 168 hour TEFL course. I enjoyed this course a lot. It is very inexpensive compared to other courses but you wouldn’t know it by the course material. The site is beautifully designed and very intuitive. Anyone can navigate the site regardless of computer proficiency. The material is comprehensive and thorough. This is not a course you will be able to blow though in a couple of weeks without learning something. The assignments are very challenging and do a really good job of preparing you for what you will be handing should you get a job teaching english. A lot of people will say they got through this course in 6 weeks. This is doable. The individual lessons dont take as much time as they are projected to, however, you should take the time if you have it. It is a great opportunity to learn things you weren’t taught in school or what you may have forgotten over the years (lexical sets anyone?)
I currently have a job interview in the Czech Republic and am excited to start a new an exciting journey. Take this course. They are legit.

I entered the TEFL course not knowing what to expect. It was a big change in direction and I have no background in languages or teaching. As. A result, I was apprehensive about the course, and wondering if I’d be able to understand. However, in between the online learning portions of the course and the seminars, everything was very clear, and informative. I was able to complete the course in the timeframe of 2 months I had set for myself (before I’d be too busy due to other pursuits), and furthermore, complete the course to a high standard. For anyone who has an interest in TEFL, I would recommend the course.

Note that I can’t speak for job placement at this point, having not looked, so the 3 star review of this section is merely out of a lack of information and experience.

Hello everyone. I wanted to work as a teacher abroad but all employers which I tried to find wanted TEFL certificate. Thats is why I was starting to search good course in the internet.I was looking over many offers and eventually I found this site . I look all very carefully and really like the reviews of other students and their stories of new work and new experience in other countries. By the way, this TEFL course offered good discount so I tried.
For my opinion, all parts of TEFL course created in a perfect way. I get really an extra knowledge and new experience.If I had any questions or problems I should only wrote an e-mail and within short term I got the answer.Also, when I was doing my lesson plans ,teacher ,who controlled my work , gave me correction very professional and immediately.
What is more, I would like to note that I really busy person and during my education at the TEFL Cours I was working at the other job and did not have time to finish my work at the right term. I bough extra time for finishing my course and it was really very convenient for me.

Thats is why I recommend everyone to join this course .
There is only one problem with which you can be faced . There are near 70% of employers who offer and prefer native speaking teachers. But never give up and you will find your dream work!

All the aspects of teaching abroad successfully were covered and more.

I have recently completed the 120 hours TEFL course and I have to divulge that it was a remarkable course. I am a holder of a B Ed degree, but a tefl qualification is essential to teach abroad. This course is well structured and permits you to work on your own pace. The course included 10 modules and each module had a meticulous focus. This course is a passport to anyone that wishes to travel and teach around the globe. It allows one the opportunity to experience diverse cultures. The lecturers are responsive and help out throughout the course when particularly when you stumble across difficulties. I would recommend this course to anyone that desires to teach and travel the world.

Well, what can i say, other than Im totally delighted by the proficiency and expertise of everyone working in the TEFL Academy – my lecturer, the course manager, the support team, the tutors. It definitely should be mentioned that the course content is super detailed and demands a lot of time for reading learning, further reading, practicing etc. Even though the course offers a lot of information, it is easy to go through it – as modules are planned really well. The structure is organized in such a way that doesnt burden the student. And last, but not least – the course gave me a very good foundation, confidence that thanks to putting the necessary effort and time, I can make quality lesson plans to deliver in my classes. Thanks to the practice with the 2 End of Course Assignments i was able to figure out how much work and thinking, researching and ongoing self-educating is required to be a great teacher. I would sincerely like to thank the whole team of The TEFL ACADEMY. Really recommend them to anyone who would like to expand his / her knowledge and to make a step into the direction of a future career as a TEFL English teacher.

Very satisfied. The company was willing to work with me when I was diagnosed with cancer. I had to pause my education while I received treatment. I learned more about teaching English as a second language then I thought I would. I have a better understanding of how to break down the basics of teaching, lesson planing, and phonetics! My class was all online. That is why Instructor and Practice only received 4 stars. I have no complaints. I did not rate Job Placement as I am beginning to look and do not feel I can accurately rate this request.

The courses likes that motivate you, encourage you, make you create something new that can be suitable for pupils you are going to teach.
To sum up, I would like to say, that teachers should always long to teach better, be better, do better. if you love what you do, you are always ready to do it.

The course content is comprehensive and it covers everything you need to know in detail from creating lesson plans to different teaching methods and useful teaching tips. Completing this course has definitely made me feel more confident about my teaching skills.

The end-of-course assignments were a great learning experience on their own as you’re required to create different lesson plans and come up with interesting activities and materials to suit your students; a great way to apply what you learned. Instructors were very helpful and quick to respond. They suggested ways in which I could improve my lesson plans further.

I’m so excited I just finished Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) by the TEFL Academy! It was a long course, but very complete and interesting and the structure made it possible for me to study at my own pace. I’m a native English speaker, but, because I was born in Italy and I have a very Italian name, my CV often gets passed up by English language schools. I started this course because I need a document that certifies that I can teach English, even though I have already been teaching to all different age groups throughout the years.
I thought that this course wouldn’t really give me any information that I hadn’t previously acquired on site, but I was mistaken! It was a very insightful course, full of practical examples, links and references that I have found useful in my daily lessons. I think that the price is adequate to the completeness of the course too. I’ve already recommended it to fellow-teachers and I recommend it to you too!

It covered all the basics of teaching English and provides several suggestions for lesson planning. I would definitely recommend first time TEFL student to take the 168 hour course as it also includes a 20 hour weekend course which was very useful and informative.

The 120-hour TEFL course that I completed was very extensive for its length. I had not anticipated it to be filled with so much detailed information and opportunities to practice the newly acquired knowledge.
I thought that the grammar sections were quite a good revision for anyone who has not done any grammar for a while, and certainly a good introduction for those who never learned in the manner that foreign students do.
The modules were overall clearly organised. Because the practice exercises were strategically placed in varied intervals, I had to be very systematic to stay on top of the material. This made the whole experience engaging and rewarding.
My favourite thing about the course were the classroom hours, during which we got to practice teaching techniques. Those same techniques were first practiced on us, which was a very ingenious way of introducing TEFL methods.

The TEFL Academy provides a great course as a foundation for teaching English to non native speakers.
The course content was very useful and practical. The online modules provided a lot of information that will assist with being a teacher and really helps you to develop skills in lesson planning.
The two day workshop was rather intense but reinforced a lot of what was learnt online. It allows you to do some practice with your peers however does not allow for practice with actual students.
I would definitely recommend the course for anyone looking to pursue a career in this industry. Definitely worthwhile and great value for money.

Overall, I enjoyed the TEFL Academy online experience. The chapter tests and assignments are straightforward and thorough, and the course offers a lot of information ranging from strategies and skills that can be utilized in the classroom. Based on the information, the program gives a real insight to how it would be working inside of a English Language Learning school. Not only that, but the two day in-class course is well-taught and allows people who are interested in teaching English abroad to see and feel what it would be like as a teacher abroad and an ELL student.

As a current teacher (not teaching EFL) I found that this program allowed me to use strategies that I have used with my current students, in addition to providing me with other creative activities to be used in and out of the classroom. In general, I think the program was critical, inspiring, and informative for people who are interested in teaching abroad.

I am utterly impressed with the standard of procedure undertaken by The TEFL Academy. I feel abundantly skilled and proficiently versed as an ESL teacher and I am keen on where this qualification might lead me. I was unsure about becoming an English as a Foreign Language teacher at first, but gaining what I have from the TEFL academy has given me the confidence and courage to take on this endeavour as I see fit. The TEFL Academy offers cost effective courses and ample time to learn what it means to teach English as a foreign language, as well as generous support and help with job placement which ultimately makes the whole process remarkably easier. I am massively grateful to The TEFL Academy and I would recommend them to anyone. The TEFL Academy definitely stands most paramount to their competitors and I couldn’t ask them to improve in any way possible.

I recently completed the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs). Easy to understand and helpful/patient tutors.
The games and strategies taught are examples I will always come back to for ideas.
My only recommendation would be to maybe word some things in laymen’s terms as not everyone would understand the terminology off the bat.
Overall, I’m going into the industry confident thanks to this course. Thank you

I enjoyed the TEFL course more than I thought I would. Call me a nerd, but I even enjoyed reviewing grammar. The modules were well structured and the activities complemented the content well. The extended reading suggestions at the end of each module were informative and helpful. I had my classroom weekend after having done the grammar modules, which was a good move. These two modules were the most challenging, as grammar can be tricky to teach. Having read and thought about it beforehand, particularly verb tenses, made it easier to follow the teacher and for concepts to sink in. The classroom teacher was very knowledgeable and his approach engaging. Our group was fun and we still keep in touch encouraging each other – a fun, social aspect of the course.
The course makes you realise the wealth of information available on the internet to help with teaching. It gave me the confidence that, even if I don’t know a particular grammar point, I can easily find lessons, suggestions and teaching materials.
The assignments were a bit more challenging than the modules, and I felt they truly put me to the test of whether I had grasped the concepts. It was a good way of reviewing and putting into practice what I had learned. I was very happy with the comments and advice I had from the reviewers.
I finished the course feeling confident, although I would have liked some practice teaching before braving the job market.

I complete the TEFL Academy course recently. As a professional and nearly 54, I am perhaps not the conventional age to begin teaching English. However, when I was working in the oil industry in SE Asia I saw that there was a need for help, mentoring young employees (and older) in presentation techniques and in report writing. This course was excellent in showing how to lesson plan and provide interesting material to help students learn English vocabuary and grammar. I was impressed that the content was so thorough for an online course and pleasantly surprised and the quantity and quality of study. This course was worth every penny.

I just finished my TEFL course Level 5 (168hrs) with The TEFL Academy. This course was really resourceful to me. It helped me a lot with many questions I had regarding my teaching job. It gave me new ideas that when tried out I obtained positive results. It was the answer to many of my questions and doubts that a new teacher usually faces.

The Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hours) was well structured with different modules covering different topics. The tests at the end of the modules were not too daunting and provided immediate feedback on my performance.
The assignment instructions were clear and detailed, which helped to make sure I completed all the necessary tasks. This was helpful as I hadn’t studied for many years and wasn’t really familiar with current requirements. The feedback for these was timely and I appreciated the one assessor who also provided suggestions for improving my assignment as well as statements about my performance.
I did the course online, so didn’t have any direct personal contact with instructors or teaching practice. However, the interactive nature of the online course did a reasonable job at simulating some aspects of that.
The course was a positive experience and I would recommend it to others.

At TheTeflAcademy.com, I finished the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs) and overall had a good experience.

It was easy to go through the online sections at my own pace and then complete the assignments. Feedback was overall good, and I think it was mostly fair.

I don’t think their job boards or resources are too helpful so far. Don’t take this course just for hoping to get job offers. This is only to get TEFL certification.

Nice course, decent price.

The TEFL 5 level course is very professional. Each unit is clearly explained.
Videos, exercises and other resources help us to understand better the content in each unit.
We approached teaching for different level of students too.
Marks are fair and feedback is thorough too.
I really enjoyed this course and I recommend it.
From one unit to another is very encouraging and captivating.
Brilliant.

The TEFL Academy made me realize that teaching English does not have to be hard work or boring. From the online courses I have learned how to effectively create a lesson plan, which at first was confusing. The end of course assessment was scary at first but after putting the time and effort I have come to realize that I have learned how to teach and create lesson plans.
I also came to realize that I have a somewhat of a niche market here in the country I currently reside in, and that is professional business English. Coming from business background and wanting to teach English, I came to realize, from one of the end of course assignments, that not only was the course fun to teach but I was also very confident since it was my work background.
I am so happy to report that I already got job offer from a company to teach to professional business English to major companies international companies. Thank you TEFL Academy for the experience, the fun class atmosphere, and the valuable knowledge that I have learned.

I did the 168 hours combined course with the TEFL Academy. I found the content of the course to be clear, concise and helpful with each unit being divided into specific relevant topics that were easy to understand and complete.

The assessment for the course was also thorough and the feedback received helpful. Each end of unit test helped to reinforce what was learned and the assignments did an excellent job of using all the information I had gained up until they were assigned. I found that the assignments made me feel more confident in what I was learning and helped prepare me for the actual job of teaching and making lesson plans.

Perhaps the only criticism to make is that there could have been more practice teaching in the course. While the 2 days of in-person teaching were helpful the amount of time in those two days actually spent practice teaching was minimal. Though this is a small issue as overall the course does a great deal to inform the student about how to run a classroom and what work teaching involved.

Overall I am very happy with my experience at the TEFL academy and I would recommend them to anyone seeking a TEFL qualification.

I’m delighted to have completed my TEFL course. Before I signed up I was nervous and had no idea what to expect, but as soon as I stepped into the classroom the instructor made me feel at ease. Well informative and very engaging, the 20 hours practical was brilliant and I can’t thank the instructor enough.

The 100 hours of online content was challenging, but so satisfying once the course has been completed. The website was easy to use and the information given was broken down nicely.

I never thought I would be able to achieve this course and what’s even better is that I have an interview for a position in Mexico, just 2 weeks after my completion date!!

Thank you so much.

I really believe that it was a very intensive course and will help me a lot in the future.

Each module was so different and required a lot of attention and dedication in order to pass it and move to the net one.

I enjoyed it and the end of course assesments were wuiteb difficult especially the second one as it required a lot of time involvement to make sure is right which made the course so much more interesting.
I would recommend it to anyone and specially with some of us working full time, the time flexibility to do it around work and still get it done within the time frame… I think it weas great.

I would say to everyone to Go for it !!!

The end of module tests were great for reinforcing what was learned in each module. I felt that the modules complemented each other well. The modules provided good examples of real life situations that I could encounter in a classroom setting with students of different ages and levels.

The expectations and grading criteria for the lesson plans were clear and concise. My tutor provided excellent feedback for the lesson plans, as well as suggestions on things that could be added to future lessons.

The interactive workbook activities for each module were helpful and kept me organised throughout the course. Although some of the interactive workbooks provided a couple of activities that were not useful.

The support staff were very helpful in resolving any issues or concerns that I had…I called their office several times and each time they resolved my concern promptly and accurately.

Overall, it is a good option if you are looking for an online TEFL course. Great value for money.

I signed up for the 120 Hours online TEFL course in May 2017 and recently completed it. The reason I did so was that I got an English Teaching job opportunity in China and my agent suggested me to get the certificate as I stand better chances getting a placement.

The online course was great and self-explanatory and the tests after each module helped me to focus on the curriculum.

The 2 days weekend teaching practice was however short but covered many topics and the teacher was knowledgeable and had awesome teaching experience. I wish we had more time to spend with her as she shared real life examples from personal experience. During the exercises teacher highlighted mistakes and always explained them providing alternative solutions.

Overall I am happy with the course content and got the value for my money. I needed course extension and Customer Service was always prompt in responding and provided great deal of support.

I would warmly recommend the course to anyone who would like to take a different direction in his/her professional life. TEFL gives you the key – you just need to use it and practice. Just as in life – after completing the course you get the real experience on the job but TEFL gives you a good basis.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from TEFL when I joined the course, but it definitely exceeded my expectations! The TEFL course is thorough, informative and well-structured. The only issue I found was that there was some unnecessary repetition throughout some of the modules, and some of the modules felt a bit too padded at times, although not by much.

Aside from this, The TEFL Academy provided excellent detail, and useful tips for teaching throughout, which gave me a better understanding of what it means to be a TEFL teacher and how to implement the theoretical knowledge in a practical setting. The only thing I wish there had been more of was actual teaching practice, as I feel as if I am lacking confidence in this particular area. The TEFL instructors have been very helpful and fair in their feedback and guidance however, which made the course run a lot smoother in the long-run.

At times I felt like I’d never understand what being a TEFL teacher would entail, however this course has hugely increased my confidence and has equipped me with the skills and knowledge relevant to my future teaching career… very highly recommended!

As an over 50- year -old with time on my hands, the 120 hour TEFL course from the TEFL Academy was an excellent choice, with very informative course content, competent feedback and an interesting and enjoyable practice teaching weekend. Initially, I thought I would finish the course within a few weeks, but as things turned out I was glad that 6 months were available. The final assignments were challenging, but the course had given me all the tools I needed to complete them with distinction. The 20- hour teaching practice was a very enjoyable and useful part of the course, this could be perhaps extended a little as some aspects were somewhat rushed.
On the whole, the course was a just what I needed and has already helped me with my first English teaching job. I would be happy to recommend the TEFL Academy to anyone interested in teaching English abroad.

I decided to do The TEFL Academy’s 120-hour online course on the spur of the moment, whilst chatting to a friend about wanting to try out something new. I am also a qualified Dietitian and Massage Therapist and thoroughly enjoy working with kids.
As it was the first time I was studying online, and I’m not very computer-savvy, I was quite apprehensive … but I needn’t have worried.The TEFL Academy’s course is very well thought out, and not only do they explain each step in detail in writing, they also have short videos on each step, as well as a ‘Most Commonly Asked Questions’ section. If we had any other questions – either about the contents of the actual course or a ‘technical’ question – all one has to do is to create a ticket. Every query I had was answered timeously. I found parts of the course challenging (grammar especially) but I am very pleased with the overall amount that I learnt. I enjoyed how they built on from one module to the next, as well as the ‘Key Words’ section at the end of each module which helped with reviewing that section before writing the module test. The extra information on how to write a CV and cover letter, job boards and other resources was most helpful. Thanks to The TEFL Academy, I now feel confident, to go out and teach both children and adults, English as a foreign language.

It is one of the best choices I have made for myself professionally and I would recommend it to any aspiring English language instructor to take it. Personally I graduated with a business degree.

The course is very comprehensive in itself; materials, modules, pedagogy and its structure makes it very approachable and easy-to-understand to grasp new concepts without prior teaching experience.

The 120 hour online course can be completed in approximately three months if you are consistent and it does not occupy too much time as well which allows you flexibility and autonomy in completing the course.

I am currently teaching in Turkey and I am considering teaching there for one extra year. This experience could not have happened without this course.

Therefore a massive thank you to the whole team!

Although my teaching plans have changed since I started the course (and therefore did not need to utilize the job placement services) I felt like I learned a lot and received a quality education through this course. Overall I definitely recommend it!

I really enjoyed this course. Naturally, having picked the online version due to my busy schedule I didn’t get much practice teaching which would’ve been lovely. Nevertheless, I did get the chance to go for an online course combined with 2 classes to attend in Dublin. Rachel, the instructor, was excellent: professional and so much fun; it was a pleasure knowing her and spending two whole days with other people whom I shared the same goal with, all from different nationalities and backgrounds. An experience I won’t easily forget as I learned so much from skills for planning lessons to implementing them in front of the whole class as a kind of a test. The online content of the actual course was thorough including all useful information for anyone hoping to be a skilled teacher, and concise enough not to be boring (in my opinion, but I do love my reading and my grammar…!). Confidence is what I gained the most and, through tests and assignments, proof that a dream can become reality, with just a little bit of work…My plan is to teach English at the Gran Canarias. Next step: Cambridge C2.

I am happy that I could finish this course in the given time to complete it, also being able to have the practical teaching with a tutor. I am now looking for places to teach and have an adventure. The guidelines of the TEFL Academy is certainly of good help when it came to building up my CV and completing the assignments. At the end of the course I needed some help with the deadline but the academy was kind enough to extend the content of my course by a week. I am genuinely impressed.

It took me a while to complete the course but if I had prioritized it I could have finished in a couple of month. The school was great about giving me a (paid) extension. The modules were informational. some could have been merged, making it less work. The school is good at returning your emails and answering your questions. Because I was online I didn’t have any practice teaching. I just received my certificate in the mail which only took a couple of weeks to get to me. I wasn’t to impressed with the job boards that the school provides as most are the same ones I have viewed on my own online. The CV and cover letter they provided should be helpful in finding my first job.

For the amount of hours, the content on this course was well-rounded. The essentials of language teaching were thoroughly covered as well as well as extra notes that a teacher could utilise to make their classes distinct, like examples of freer-speaking activities.

The teaching practice during the classroom course does well to replicate the pressures of teaching a real class. However these classes were a little too long and could be spread across more days. Nevertheless our instructor was really good at motivating us throughout both days.

Course feedback on coursework was prompt but not detailed enough for me to learn where I fell short of the mark.

The course is packed with useful resources, mainly online, the only problem being that the volume of content can make it difficult to separate the useful resources from the less useful.

We were given lots of tools, and webpages with great resources I personally didn’t know about. Secondly, the activities from the workbooks were easy to handle with, clear instructions. Finally, the final assignments gave me the opportunity to reflect on teaching. I definitely recommend TEFL academy!

I was quite scared about my future and I wasn’t sure what it was that I am wanting to do for the rest of my life, it is quite a massive decision.
Only until I met someone who has taught in Vietnam, now currently in Span. She said it was the best thing that she has ever done, not only getting to work with kids but also all that the job has to offer you, how easy it is to travel and make money.

I decided to talk to some more people and everyone had the same thing to say, IT’S AMAZING. I moved back to my hometown, decided to take the course and boom! Done! I am very excited to see what this holds for me.

Thanks for the amazing assistance.

Have and would still keep on recommending The TEFL Academy to everyone!

The TEFL Academy offers a unique, well-run, excellently organised and administered 120-hour TEFL course.

The course was easy to follow and effective, with near-immediate feedback. End-of-course assignments were graded within the time limit specified, and feedback provided was clear and valuable.

The content covered was good enough for the purposes that a TEFL course serves. I have completed a teaching degree in a different subject area, and the TEFL course was an excellent teacher as to not only the content to be covered when teaching English, but also included methods and advice in terms of teaching management.

For all areas which were not covered in more detail, further resources are provided, including links when possible. This course was, thus, not only well-sourced whilst being completed, but will also prove to be effective in the long run.

If I were to do this course again, I would try to do more of it, more often. As a working woman, I often missed a month of working online due to the work load in real life. I would recommend future students of this course to make a point of doing at least a little bit each day.

Thank you, The TEFL Academy. I am now a better prepared and equipped to be a TEFL teacher internationally.

I chose this course as it encompassed both aspects of online teaching and practical teaching.
The practical sessions were really great, the teaching was fantastic and informative, but also extremely practical in that we had the opportunity to put what we had been taught into practice. Having the chance to teach a lesson to a group of peers was extraordinarily beneficial in terms of receiving feedback and developing confidence.
The online sessions were great in terms of accessibility, as I could complete the course at my own pace. I fell ill during the time period of taking this course and the team were great at helping me extend my course deadline and were just generally extremely helpful. The course content was also in depth, but easy to understand.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this course as a step into your English teaching career!

I was very pleased to have taken the 120 hour TEFL course with the Academy. It opened up all areas of TEFL and provided further resources for future learning. I really enjoyed doing the 10 modules online and the classroom element was introduced in a gentle but productive way. I feel I am capable of taking on a group of students, having completed the 120 hour course.

TEFL academy is offering internship as well.the tutors have been really nice , they were always available to help. The e-learning portal was really really good I never had to face any problem. If there is a place to do TEFL its the TEFL academy I personally think its the best institution. Thank you

I have really enjoyed studying TEFL through TEFL Academy.
English is not my native language so at the beginning I was full of doubts… Is it really for me? Is my English good enough to teach someone? What if I will spend my money on the course and simply fail?
But on the other hand I really wanted to do it.
I completed on-line course and must admit that it was challenging at times (especially modules including phonetic transcription). I have been studying English for 10 years but on this course I have learnt a lot of new things and definitely developed my skills and abilities. Got great support from tutors and staff marking my assignments. It was very interesting experience and I passed the course with distinction! Well proud of myself;)

Doing a TEFL course has always been something I have wanted to do, so I set myself a goal to complete it within the six months I was given. The course content and user friendliness of the website allowed me to do so in less than six months, considering I have a full-time job as well. I was very impressed with the helpful nature of the call center agents as well feedback on my assignments by my assessor. I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to obtain a teaching qualification. I am beyond happy with the results and also proud to say that against all odds, I passed my certification with a distinction.

This course was excellent I learned so much. The tutors are excellent and give great feedback. I found the material easy to understand and helpful for anyone interested in teaching English. My only feedback would be it takes a lot longer than 6 weeks to complete the course if you work outside the home. Other than that I loved this course!

The course is detailed and all content is clearly set out and explained.

I chose to study the course completely online and could fit it perfectly around my work and life.

Feedback and marks on assignments were in depth and really quickly given too!

After 30 years working in a customer service environment, including 20 years running bars, I decided I needed a change. I saw the TEFL course advertised when i moved to Spain and after selling my bar in July decided to give this a try. Thinking it may be too challenging for me, having left school a long time ago, I hoped for a pass with the minimum grades. However, I found the course extremely interesting and very easy to follow. The weekend in the classroom in Madrid helped clear up concerns over lesson planning and other issues. I am now looking forward to applying for jobs in Spain and maybe even further afield. Thank you so much TEFL Academy for giving me this opportunity to change my career!!

Over the last 3 months I completed the online 120 hour TEFL course as well as 20 hours class room training.

I believe The TEFL Academy do courses in lots of locations, but I did mine in Manchester. On arrival we were greeted by the tutor and straight away we were doing activities to get to know each other. This is really how the course continued, with lots of activities and teaching practice.

I completed the course and got my certificate on the last day, which was a big bonus for me, as I was discussing a job with an online teaching company I told them I was doing a course they were willing to wait 3 months for me to obtain my certificate which I managed to obtain 1 month into starting my job.
I will recommend this course to my friends and family as it opens a great deal of opportunities for you.

After looking for several TEFL courses, I found The Tefl Academy through google searches. The price is extremely affordable and, being in the US and with no time to attend classes, I figured that the online option was perfect for me.

I am not used to online courses (I usually abandon them in the middle because I become more and more bored) but this one kept challeging me over and over again – which is a good thing, as I finally completed it!

The content is very structured and engages you from simple and broad things to very specific topics. I am not a Native speaker (and my English is basically american) so phonetics and some vocabulary were very challeging for me.

As somebody who had already worked as an EFL teacher, I was already familiar with some terms, but it was very instructive and I learned a lot more. For example: I was used to sketch a lesson plan but not with that much details and it was extremely helpful as, from now on, I know how to do it and I have some material I can check on from time to time to remind me whatever I need.

I rated 4 stars in Job Placement because I am still organizing my CV and cover letter therefore I haven’t applied for any jobs yet. However, once I needed some more info about job placement and stuff related and they were very friendly and patient with, making me aware of places I would probably like or get adapted. So customer service is amazing – and they do not abandon you once you complete their course.

As I chose the online version of the course, I can’t rate them in ‘practice teaching’. And my ‘instructor competency’ I rated as the person who corrected my assignements and gave me a very detailed feedback – showing me the strenghts and weaknesses on my essays and lesson plans.

I loved this course and couldn’t recommend it more. I was able to continue working at my current job whilst training with TEFL and all they asked for was one weekend that I attend classes. The weekend was very well organised, the teacher professional and I got to meet some like-minded friends at the course.
The online aspect is very thorough and easy to use (I’m not very good with computers and I had no trouble). And once I had submitted the final assessments, the feedback and grades came within a few days.
Definitely worth doing this course – I now have a very useful qualification which I’m going to put to good use soon.

Ever since finishing my third year of teacher training, I’ve been looking at ways to take myself abroad with the profession. I immediately came across the 120 hour course with the TEFL Academy and signed up. As someone who has been through 3 years of training in England, I was already very familiar with the layout and content of teacher training courses and was interested to see how TEFL matched up. Needless to say, it exceeded the quality of all 3 years of my training to date. The course workbooks were challenging yet interesting (a very hard combination to master) and the end of module tests assess the knowledge you’ve acquired excellently. The assignments were difficult (I won’t lie), however ample advice on what to include and how to lay them out was provided. Grading and feedback was provided in a timely and detailed manner, something that I greatly appreciated.

On a slightly different note, the TEFL Academy also keep you informed on the status of your course via text. For someone who seldom checks their emails, this was invaluable!

My summary as an already qualified teacher is as follows: this course is expertly constructed and professionally run. The objectives set for you are challenging yet attainable. The support offered is exceptional, especially if you are new to teaching. All in all, an experience which I have throughly enjoyed. If only all other institutes could make learning this enjoyable.

As a language graduate, I love to travel and have a keen interest in langauge. When I finished my degree I decided to travel to France and teach english. I had never taught english before and therefore decided to do the TEFL course online. I thoroughly enjoyed it and now feel very well-equipped to teach grammar and the major skills due to the comprehensive online course. I am very glad I completed it, it is such a wonderful certificate to have which can be used at any time, anywhere! I would highly recommend the online course.

I always wanted to do an EFL course but never had the time to attend lessons. I have been teaching ICT since 2000 and wanted to have a better view of the language. This course has been an inspiration. It showed how well an online course can be organised. It opened my eyes to new theories of learning and exercises for young learners. The only thing I missed was an eye to eye contact with the teachers/moderators in a forum or website (at the end of the course or in the middle of the course). Sometimes, knowing your teacher or tutor can make your life change. I will always remember this superb and well organised course.

So i have wanted to do my TEFL since I left High-School and after much research I chose The TEFL Academy. They have awesome teachers and they are just an email away. They always provided me with all the information i needed with links to practice activities and explanations.
I took the 20 hour in class room package as I have no prior teaching experience and that helped me a lot. They covered everything in such detail that after the in-class course I really had no questions to ask when the question session came up. The online portion of the course is easy accessible and the interface is extremely welcoming. The website is well designed and I had no trouble logging in from my various connections.

The course is great. The end really gets you. The staff for the online class could be better. Student services made it a hassle to get me an extension. They didn’t make it personal enough. What a headache. Make it easy for us students. I might be teaching someone you know one day.

Oh, and they don’t give you a heads up, but they shut down your account on the last weekday before your course end date. Which sucks. Get it together student services.

The feedback that I received on my assignments was very quick and very helpful.
I plan to teach abroad within the next year, probably in Asia.

I was excited to have the opportunity to complete a TEFL course alongside my current full time work. The flexible nature of this course was ideal. I also appreciated the fact that you had to complete one module at a time. This meant I invested in each module properly, as opposed to skipping forward. This was key to then be able to complete the end of module exam and assignments comprehensively. Overall, the course content was easy to follow and all the necessary information was provided in order to complete the tests, exam and assignments. I would advise people to create a timeline for the completion of modules/exams/assignments to ensure they have sufficient to complete all comprehensively in the 6 months. When taking full notes this can take longer than initially expected.Thank you for this opportunity, I am now excited to put the learning into practice.

I highly recommend The TEFL Academy and have already informed my friends of the great opportunities they will have if they sign up to this course. At first I wasn’t sure if I was capable of completing a 120 hour, as I was never the best at English in school. However, I’m glad I did. The course expanded my knowledge of the English language and provided me with confidence. The online layout is great because it’s easy to navigate. The material provided was very helpful and the course itself was enjoyable.

I thoroughly enjoyed the two class lessons. Jen was extremely helpful and very friendly. I was nervous at first, as I didn’t know what to expect. But I settled in straight away and felt as though I had been in the class for weeks instead of hours. I’ve kept in contact with the people I met on the course, so thank you very much The TEFL Academy for providing me with the opportunity to meet new people.

I can’t wait to look at all the job opportunities I now have thanks to completing the TEFL course.

I have been a teacher of music and English in Denmark for nearly 3 decades. I expect to retire to China in a few years, and hope to be able to teach a little when living there. I therefore decided that a TEFL certificate would be beneficial.
I must confess to being somewhat sceptical about how much a 120 hour course could teach me. I was positively surprised and can thoroughly recommend this course to those who like me have jobs to go to. The course is well presented, logically constructed and covers a wide spectrum of that you will require to teach successfully.
I hope to be involved in teaching for many years to come, and looking forward to searching the TEFL jobs sections.
I would add however, that you will not pass if you do not meet the basic requirements. Well done TEFL academy, great course, I should have done this 20 years ago.

I completed the 120 hour online course and was very impressed with each aspect of the course. With the course being online I imagined there may be times when it became tedious, but this was not the case. Each module was clearly defined and the target aim was always met. Having the test at the end of each module meant that you were eager to have understood the module in detail. The weekend classroom course hugely exceeded my expectations. The teacher was brilliant and I must say, with 20 hours over two days, the teacher makes all the difference!

TEFL is great, and it was great to meet other people who were doing the same course too.

My advice would be, not to think twice, and sing up for the TEFL course! You must be eager, passionate, and willing to learn. However, I think it is an unwritten rule that anyone who starts the TEFL journey will be that way inclined anyway.

I loved this course. It’s so informative and detailed. I rushed out of my office every day telling anyone I can about what I’ve learnt.
The practical weekend was very good. We had an excellent teacher who handled the differing levels of student very well.
It took me a lot, lot longer than I thought. I would like to see a more detailed timeline for time expected, especially at the end with the assignments. I had not realised that it all had to be returned and marked by the end of six months and so had to pay for an extension.
I can easily recommend this course, especially for those who have never taught before. Great resources, websites etc.

I completed the 120 hour online course and I was very impressed with it. As a writer, I love English, and I had been wanting to teach English to others. Thanks to the TEFL Academy, I now have that opportunity.

The course content is in-depth, and broken into parts which lessens the difficulty of the overall structure. It emphasizes what needs to be thoroughly learned in order to be correctly taught in the future. And gives any beginner a well structured introduction to teaching English.

I am happy to have gone through this process with TEFL Academy. It was a very pleasant experience, as whenever I had a query or issue, I was assisted immediately and queries were resolved.

I enjoyed taking the 120-hour combination course and believe that the content and advice given really helped me in a classroom setting. The lesson-planning guidance that was given was especially useful, and it was nice to have a refresher when undertaking the assignments.
However, I did find the online course to be quite tedious in parts. Much of the phonetic component proved itself to be inapplicable to our class during the practical weekend (we were all Scottish) and I have not been able to use it in a class so far. The weekend component was very enjoyable and valuable, though, and our instructor gave us a lot of helpful advice beyond the realm of just our course components.

I think this is a good base TEFL course and would recommend it to others.

This was an excellent and comprehensive course. The topics to be covered were logically divided up across the modules, each module feeling like its own subtopic. Challenging areas such as English grammar were broken down into manageable steps.

The support team always responded quickly to my queries, and the in-depth feedback on my end-of-course assignments was also very helpful.

Wanting to travel but having never taught before I was apprehensive about future prospects as an ESL teacher.
Having completed the TEFL certificate through the TEFL Academy I now have the confidence I was initially lacking.
The online modules together with the practical weekend provided the perfect balance and is a definite must for anyone who has never taught before.
I found the approach to lesson planning most beneficial as I was required to create a lesson plan for my second interview and had it not been for the course I may well not have been successful.
Furthermore, the practical weekend (and our instructor) rounded off the online portion fantastically and I gathered several insights into how to actually teach a class and the conduct therein.
I highly recommend The TEFL Academy to anyone wanting to teach whilst travelling.

Thank you for the opportunities this course has created and good luck to all future ESL teachers

I’m already involved in teaching English and wanted the TEFL to advance my career. I found the TEFL Acadamy easy to deal with when enrolling and setting up my course. The course itself is very informative with helpful videos and lots [perhaps a little too much] of text. But the instruction is clear and I made steady progress from start to finish. I would highly recommend the TEFL Acadamy.

One of the best courses ever! I’ve just passed my 120 hours course and I can’t thank the Academy enough for all the information, techniques and tips I’ve learned. Thanks to the interactive activities done throughout the course I am now aware of all the teaching skills a good teacher needs. The final assignments really helped me to put in practice what I’ve been studying in each module. I’m now working for an english private school and online company thanks to the knowledge acquired . I would definitely recommend The TEFL Academy to anyone who wants to teach and get a TEFL certification.

I truly learned a lot from this course. They have it very organized and detailed, so I like that. They usually give you 6 months to finish, and I went beyond that because of personal events happening in my life and they were very gracious at extending it with a minimum fraction of the cost to extend it.

I wanted to do the practice teaching, but most of the schedules near my location happen on Saturday, which I cannot go to because it’s the Sabbath for me. I wish they have different schedules, like during the week, to accommodate other people who might not be available on the weekend.

Other than that, the experience has been great! Great quality, great customer service, great program!

The course was very easy to follow and complete. It was well structured and contained content that I found both interesting, new and challenging at sometimes. I would recommend the course to anyone. My only feedback is with regards to the costs involved after obtaining the certificate. The fast track fee must be displayed up front when booking the course and allowed to be selected as an option

This is my best way to obtain my TEFL qualification. Firstly, its course structure is very well-organized. 2 days classroom in-person training plus 100 hours for online training. This basically blended with theory and practical all together.

I very enjoyed it! I feel happy as I’m now a qualified English teacher with my current completed university degrees. This can enhance my chance to get a dream job overseas.

Also I decided to go for this great course because I want to change my career forever and want to get strong! (Just like Pokemon trainer, Ash Ketchum in Kalos series)

The price is very affordable! A$375 after 50% off discount!

I recommend everyone should do the course if you want to get a TEFL qualification!

The 100 hour online and 20 hour classroom based TEFL course was better than I had expected. I had personally not begun the online aspect of the course before attending the classroom, however this was not problematic and in fact assisted me along the way of the online course. I was able to complete the course in 6 months at a pace that worked around my daily life and busy schedule. The course was interesting, engaging and educational. The two end of course assignments were challenging and I received good, detailed feedback from online tutors. I am now in Brazil, hoping to use my TEFL qualification and I am confident that the CV and cover letter guidance attached will help me to find a job.

I’ve finally completed my TEFL course!
Spent many years thinking about it and trying to figure out if it was worth. The only way to find out was to give it a try.
I am happy to recommend it to anyone who wants to start to teach English as foreigner language.
From grammar and linguistic, lesson planning to more specific psychological and pedagogical topic, the 120 hours course gives you an overview of how to successfully plan a lesson for different levels and ages, things to take in consideration and activities which facilitate learning.
The 20 hours classroom course is very helpful to get into the TEFL mindset and understand how a lesson should be set up, with great tips for the final assignments as well.
After completing this course, I feel confident and prepared to embark on a new adventure.
The TEFL jobs board and the useful resources that the course provides, including tips for CV and cover letter, guide you through the job application process.
As English speakers sometimes we take it for granted, until we realise that we are very lucky and teaching English can actually empower people around the world.

The two day workshop was fun and informative. The online section was thorough with two relatively challenging assessments to finish. I recommend this course as a first step to ESL teaching.

I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner! What an amazing course outline, extremely helpful, insightful, creative and inspiring. Not only was my TEFL trainer Judy Nel amazing, easy going and easy to talk to, I also made a few new friends thanks to TEFL. Although the grammar section was pretty grueling, I thoroughly enjoyed the step by step guide through all 10 modules. I would most certainly recommend this course to anyone wanting to step outside their comfort zones and teach English abroad! Thank you to the TEFL academy, thank you Mrs Nel!

Here’s to changing the world one TEFL English teacher at a time!

I found the 120 hour 100% online course to be ideal: self-paced over 6 months, no need to incur extra costs nor holidays to complete it. My city is geographically not practical to travel from had I needed to travel. I assure you, it is possible to document an hour course as if we had been there in person presenting it. But as a future teacher, you are motivated and structured. The modules provided a good foundation in each topic and lots of relevant links. The feedback on the assignments contains very pertinent comments and were really useful. Overall I would highly recommend the course dearly.

I found the TEFL course quite challenging, especially the final two assignments. Although I have a degree in English, this course covered a lot more in grammar, plus the methods of teaching all ages, whilst creating an innovative and fun, learning environment.
I would recommend this course to anyone interested in teaching English as a foreign language as it opens up a broad range of teaching opportunities both locally and abroad.

I highly recommend the TEFL 120 hour course! I started with no knowledge at all about teaching and have finished feeling very accomplished and feeling as if I am ready to start teaching! This course was easy to follow and I felt as if I was constantly learning new things every day. The last two assignments really challenged and pushed me but I was so happy when I had finished and completed them. All in all, I am thoroughly pleased with my experience with The TEFL Academy.
