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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’m really pleased I chose the 120 hour course, with 20 hours done with an instructor face to face – it really gave me the confidenc to go forward with the rest of the course and it gave me the opportunity to meet other people doing the same course. The instructor was very friendly and clear in her instructions and her encouragement. The modules online were very in-depth and they covered so much material, that I feel really prepared for teaching. The lesson planning assessments have also given me lots of confidence, and they allowed me to be creative and imaginative. The feedback on the assessments was prompt and detailed. A great course!

I undertook this course when deciding to travel to Europe and beyond for 2 years. I was already a teacher and thought that the course might help me in the teaching of English as a foreign language. I am very pleased with the content and support received and have already put it to good use on a voluntary basis. I would recommend the course without hesitation.

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

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

I absolutely loved the TEFL Academy course. All the course content is very well explained and covers everything you need to know about teaching English as a foreign language. The instructors marked my assignments quickly and efficiently, giving me lots of helpful feedback and advice. After completing the course I feel extremely confident that I can now design a lesson plan that covers any topic and teach it to any group of English learners. I really can’t find any fault with the course, it’s well worth completing the course.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I have been absolutely thrilled with the TEFL Academy 120 hour course. I have yet to implement the teachings as I am travelling and plan to begin work in May. However overall I cannot fault the course.

I think it is important to go with a 120 hour course with some time in the classroom as I feel this gave me a fantastic basis to efficiently tackle the online aspect. The online part of the course is well laid out, informative and progresses in a sensible and steady fashion.

The six month time limit ensures that the information remains fresh in your mind for when you come to complete your end of course assignments which are challenging but helpful in reinforcing what you have taught.

My favourite part of the course had to be the 20 hour classroom time. The instructor was interactive and kept the class moving adding humour to her examples. She used her vast experience as a TEFL teacher to give real world examples of what we may meet out in the field which made it particularly engaging. You also meet a lot of like minded people who become friends. I would definitely recommend the TEFL Academy to all who are interested, my o let criticism would be to spend more time in the classroom on the grammar aspect of the course which is by far the hardest segment.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing the course. I’ve studied the English language before and I’ve also had some teaching experience, but TEFL Academy really helped me to properly understand everything that teaching entails. It was helpful to look at parts of language such as grammar, vocabulary, etc. and instead of actually learning it, learning how to properly implement it in a lesson, how to pass your knowledge further. The course takes into account all different classes and levels we might encounter as teachers, and provides lots of helpful tips.

I think it’s also very valuable that there is a brief explanation of each language skill. Even though I’ve studied at university previously, it was great to go through it again and I imagine it must’ve been necessary for people who haven’t had any previous knowledge of how grammar works, the rules that apply, and so on.

My favorite part of the course was the 20 hour intense in-class course. It was very fun and a nice change from doing the rest of the course online, which can get a bit tedious. Our instructor was friendly and clearly very experienced, she managed to make all 20 hours interesting, timed the whole thing well and was generally a great example on how teaching should look like. I liked being put on the spot and having to create a short lesson on both days and actually having to perform it. It was a bit stressful as well, but mostly a really good exercise. I learned that knowing your timing is as essential as choosing the right content for the lesson.

Online course itself was quite alright, a little too easy maybe in some parts. I’d suggest putting the exercises right into the course because having to click back and forth between the course and the document in which I was doing the exercises was time-consuming.

Favorite part of the online course were the two assignments. It really made me work hard on my particular lesson plan, and I learned a lot while doing it. The feedback was much more detailed the first time than the second, but that may have been due to the fact that the first assignment in itself was more difficult than the second one.

Overall I would definitely recommend this course and TEFL Academy.

The TEFL Academy is an amazing training environment, with incredible practical teachers. The course is well set out and easy to follow.

The only negative aspect is the total lack of assistance when looking for a job. They just give you some links and its up to you to make it happen yourself. As per the advertising, I was expecting real personal help.

I have just completed the Tefl 120 hour combined course and found it challenging and rewarding. The on line course took longer than i anticipated to complete, the information was new and took some time to consolidate and practice. As the course progressed it became easier to grasp. The tests after each module enforced revision during the course and the final test demanded a complete revision of the on line course in order to guarantee a good score. The two day classroom experience was excellent, we had an imaginative teacher who reflected well the teaching in the course. My only reservation was that I undertook the 2 day classroom experience whilst on Module 3 and I think more can be appreciated from the classroom course if it is undertaken later in the range of Modules. I have scored excellent on every account in my review, except that in Lesson plan guidance for the final teaching assessments. I did not use any help from the Tefl academy tutors, and although we had studied lesson plans, they take a long time to undertake regularly, so I found the final assessments extremely challenging. Maybe more lesson planning practice during the on-line course might be useful, or more study in resources on lesson plans. The feedback from both the assessments was excellent and the feedback from the first assessment definitely helped me undertaken the second assessment with more understanding. I have not sought a job placement yet, but i have seen the resources and I hope to do so soon, that is the only reason i have been unable to give an excellent for job placement. The excellent resources supplied by the Tefl Academy for teaching materials and CVs and job searching provide a very supported training and network for which I am very grateful. The experience has been enlightening and inspiring and i very much look forward to my first placement teaching English.

I strongly recommend the course if you want to start a career in to the teaching field!

The 120-hour TEFL Academy course covers the range of topics needed to teach English as a foreign language. This includes grammar, pronunciation, reading, listening, classroom management, methods of teaching vocabulary, class preparation/timings— and more. I felt the exercises and tests were straightforward and got easier as I adapted to them. The final assignments are good exercises in bringing together much of what has been taught. The 20 classroom hours won’t make an expert of anyone who has never taught a class previously (nor should it be expected to), but it is a good introduction to some of the classroom skills needed. I previously taught conversational English in Hong Kong without knowing anything about class preparation/timings etc., as we just talked for the class period. But if I teach again (even conversational English), I will use much of what I have learned and I will feel more qualified in class management, vocabulary teaching, etc. While it is sometimes possible to find teaching jobs without a TEFL certificate, the more qualified teachers are, the more professional courtesy they are showing the students, because those who attend private schools pay a lot of money to be there.
Surprisingly, several careless errors can be found in some of the lessons, including complete sentences separated only by a comma (e.g. Mod. 3: ‘It was raining, however, we went for a walk’), the indefinite article omitted or the plural form not used (e.g. Mod 3: ‘The pupils don’t have to wear uniform’) and this error in Mod. 9: ‘Find someone who can talk English.’
While such errors are minor and shouldn’t detract from students’ learning of the subject, it is ironic that they are present.

I found out about this course through a friend who had did it and told me how reliable and accredited the course is. I had to take the leap and I am glad I did because the results were fantastic. The instructors were great and feedback for assignments and such were spot on. I would definitly advise this to anyone seeking a good place to learn how to teach

The course is very well structured and very easy to understand.
In addition to the materials of the course, I found the “further reading” section and the sample lesson videos very interesting.
I liked very much the combined course option that I choose. The two days of practical training in London were really useful. I was able to get so many ideas and feedbacks about teaching strategies and class management.

I am very happy to have chosen the TEFL academy to achieve my certification, I would recommend this course to everyone.

When it came to what I wanted to do with my life I wasn’t too sure. I saw an ad for TEFL Academy come up on Facebook and decided to go for it. I’m happy I did because the way you learn it in modules online piece by piece really suited my style of studying (study in your own time and at your own pace) and you had to complete one before you moved onto the next (no skipping ahead because you learned everything in a logical order).
In my opinion the feedback was extensive and helpful. I have not required to use their job placement facilities as of yet as I got a teaching job in my own area of expertise. However, had I not been studying this course during the application process I would not have ticked as many boxes with the employer as I have no other teaching qualification.
For anyone that is considering a TEFL course, I would highly recommend TEFL Academy.

As a full time worker, I was initially concerned with the length of the course and with it being completely online.
I was worried that I would have found it too confusing to do without a tutor following me directly, step by step, but I have to admit I was very pleasantly surprised with how straight forward the course was.
I raised a ticket once, to ask for support with a section of the grammar that I found a little confusing, and I received an email back within a few hours, with all the information I needed to understand it.
The course flows very naturally and the structure feels very logical and well organised; at the end of each module there are links to interesting and useful readings to further explore the topic of the module.
The language used throughout is clear and straight to the point, and most importantly, with each activity I felt like I wasn’t just told information, but I was learning through practice.
The quizzes at the end of each module assess the fundamental information studied in the module and they are easy to undertake if the topic has been revised beforehand. It is very helpful that you are able to check the result straight away, although I wish I was able to see what questions I got wrong, and what would have been the right answer.
Throughout the course there are plenty of ideas and suggestions on how to create an interesting and fun lesson, that would also be very beneficial to the students. I have worked with children for a few years but I now feel confident to teach people of any age and level of English.
The two end of course assignments are comprehensive of most of the different notions learnt in the course and serve as useful practice for new teachers. The time in which I have received the feedback for them wasn’t as quick as I expected (it says within 3-5 working days and I have received it nearly two weeks after my submission), but the content of them was very exhaustive and detailed, so I can’t really complain!
I would recommend this course to others, in fact I already have.

It is natural to be cautious of online learning providers but I can honestly say that this course has been a constructive, engaging and favourable experience.

I have learnt so much about the english language which is something I took for granted as an english speaker. I liked that the course was comprehensive and detailed. Not only did I learn about teaching a language but I have also improved my own language skills.

The online structure of the course is well organised and easy to use. It can be very challenging to learn new content with a difficult platform. The TEFL Academy gave me no such problems. I believe that the accessibility definitely aided the learning process.

The TEFL Academy offers a great online course and I would recommend this course to anyone interested 🙂

I’ve just finished my TEFL course and I really enjoyed it.
Even though I have a very busy schedule I still managed to coincide the course with work as it was made in such a clear and easy to follow way. I was looking forward to the lessons every day.
The 2 days class was very practical and excellent start. The instructor was very experienced and helpful.
The online part of the course was very enjoyable. It was my first online course and I have to say i was a bit apprehensive to do it as I didn’t think an online course could teach much but I am happy I was wrong. It has opened my eyes for teaching and I now look forward to start.
The assignments at the end of the course were excellent tools to put into practice everything I had learned. Can not recommend it enough. Worth every penny!

I found the TEFL academy’s course very practical and I rarely found that I was skipping through pages unnecessarily. Each module, section and pages all seemed to contain valuable information from the grammar rules to the best ways to teach a classroom. Getting feedback for the final assignments took a bit longer than I thought it would, so I would advise when coming up to them that people allow a suitable time for feedback, as it took 10 days to get my first assignment graded and to be able to move on to the final one. Overall, the course was a good experience and I am happy I chose TEFL academy.

Undertaking the TEFL course was an enjoyable experience which I highly recommend to those interested in teaching English as a foreign language. The Instructors are professionals in their fields and offer constructive feedback. I really enjoyed the lesson planning part of the course particularly and the course is designed in such a way that it brings out your creativity, where lots of ideas can be presented in the two test assignments at the end of the 10 modules. There is also a general overview test before the two assignments, all of which is well designed to ensure that the material has been well comprehended before the next stage is approached. Hence it is a course that works well and is filled with many, many resources and links to further one’s work during the course and after in real-practice. I felt it was great value for money also and easy to use where you can work in your own time which really suited my circumstances. I feel well equipped to begin working in this field and have no doubt that I can competently teach English as a foreign language after studying and working through this course. The staff at the academy are also very friendly and promptly revert to any queries in regard to matters of administration etc. and the overall experience was a very pleasant one, which shall be missed from that perspective. I do however look forward to putting all that I have learned into practice and I have the TEFL Academy to thank for that. It was definitely money and time spent wisely!

I recently completed the TEFL course and really enjoyed it the whole way through. I was able to work at my own pace and undertake the course during times that were suitable for me in line with my full time work. The course material is very well written and a lot of material is provided with many helpful links to further resources etc. The course online set up is very user friendly and easily accessible. Any assistance required is easy to request with a prompt response, conveying a very professional approach all round. The end of module tests ensure that one is ready to continue with the next module. The general test ensures that all that has been learned can then be applied to the two end of course assignments. Likewise the first assignment must be completed before access is given to the second which works well and in a logical pattern of examination of the overall material learned throughout this course. Likewise, the feedback given on the two assignments is provided in a professional manner which not only assists in any further ideas etc. in regard to one’s chosen project but also offers encouragement on the application of this work, which is very pleasing in such a respectful manner, enabling one to move on with great confidence. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone that is considering working in the field of education in this teaching capacity where the Academy also offers job placement opportunities and practice teaching services. Its a course with all the necessary tools to enable one to qualify in English language teaching as a second language, which is applicable to both children and adults. I also felt that the course was excellent value for money, in fact I wish I had come across it sooner, this course must be more widely marketed!

This course was very informative and enjoyable to complete. After completing this course I realise how much I had underestimated the difficulty of the English language. I feel this course includes all the necessary tools needed to teach English as a foreign language. However, as a native English speaker I think the grammar section could be laid out better. I found this difficult to understand and in turn difficult to develop a system of teaching it. As a native speaker we don’t think enough about the grammar we are using. Overall I feel this course was very worthwhile and I would recommend it to anyone looking to complete a similar course.

Overall the course material was efficient and effective to complete all the tests and assignments. All information was provided to get a student ready to start teaching and understand the context.
The tutors were always available to give feedback and answer any questions promptly, which was always a bonus for me.
I choose the combined course and highly recommend students to do so as the 20 hours classroom lessons do help with the modules online and also gives you the opportunity to practice skills.
I would recommend to start the online lessons before attending the classroom lesson.
Within 2 weeks of completing the course I was offered a job in China and will be flying off with confidence due to the knowledge I gained by taking up this course.

Being quite a busy person, I found this course extremely manageable in that I could find my own time to work on it. It does require motivation, especially with the assignments at the end, but luckily the feedback you receive on assignments is very constructive and useful, allowing you to then concentrate your time and efforts on correcting and improving what needs to be changed.
I’m now teaching English in Japan at just 18 years old confidently because of aha I’ve learned on this course. TEFL is definitely for all ages; you just need to have a passion for teaching others. 🙂

Overall I was very pleased with the 120 Hour Combined Course. The modules are easy to follow and provide a broad range of vital topics. From what is taught throughout the course I now feel confident to take up my first teaching job abroad.
The support provided by the online tutors is very useful and helpful if you are stuck or have any questions. Tutors are also quick to respond to any issues and provide results quickly.

The 20 hour classroom section of the course was very beneficial. It provides a short overview of the majority of the online course and allows you to work with other TEFL trainees. The tutor for the course i attended in Sheffield explained any issues and helped explain some key tips for TEFL teaching.

I would definitely recommend the TEFL Academy!

This course was honestly so much more interesting and informative than I thought it was going to be at the start. Every module was engaging and provided plenty of examples and activities that helped you understand what you were reading. Although the grammar module was quite intense, it helped so much going to the 2 day course in London as the tutor went over some of the things I found difficult. You could tell that the tutor was very experienced and knew what she was talking about which made her very engaging. I’m so glad that I chose the TEFL academy, as I feel I have learnt so much and I really enjoyed completing the modules as well as the 2 assignments. I would 100% recommend to anyone wanting to gain a TEFL qualification.

I never had the chance of going to school when I was young , being 58 years old I decided to take up the challenge of a TEFL course , from the beginning the staff at the academy have been fantastic , the online course content ,the explanations second to none, Whenever I had a problem I would e mail or phone the Academy and the problem would be resolved, Anyone wants to be a TEFL teacher go for it , its a great feeling when you get told you have passed the course , you will have the chance to travel and work abroad ,I will probably go to Italy to teach English , Once you start the Course it gets really interesting , gives you a great sense of achievement in the end , a big thank you to all the staff at the academy ,

I signed up for my Tefl course in December 2016, I completed it late January 2017 earlier then I could have due the fact that I had a job offer and to the excellent support from the coordinators and staff.

I needed my end of course assignment market asap and the second one released, they did this for me after I emailed them and they responded almost instantly and marked it with out asking any other questions. My second assignment was marked 2 days later.

The Tefl accademy has excellent phone support and email support the data base they use for the online course is also flawless and very easy to navigate around and to do the cource.

I had my doughts before signing up, but I can recommend the Tefl Accademy to any one seeking to do Tefel online, the course offers excellent online theory with tests and at the end 2 assignments witch test the practical side to do lesson planing. I really have learned a lot.

Overall the course was extremely well laid out and easy to follow. The modules were easy to follow along with and one could finish 2 or more per week depending on the hours put in. The final test was great and included everything from the modules. The assignments were relatively easy to understand, and if I had any questions a ticket was submitted and responded to within 24 hours. Finished the course with distinction and I can’t wait to use this knowledge in Asia.

I really enjoyed the course. It was logically organised and structured. I found it easy to follow. The course content was comprehensive. Having said that, I think it would be helpful if the key points in each module were summarised at the end of the module. Course participants could then print out the summary points for each module and have a composite summary of the course at the end – for revision. This would be helpful considering that once the course expiry date passes, participants no longer have access to the course content.
The teaching practice component of the weekend part of the course was enjoyable. It’s primary benefit however relates more to the practice of activities rather on the difficulties of teaching. Nevertheless, I was very pleased with the TEFL course overall and would recommend it as very good value.

I had been wanting to do a TEFL course for a couple of years, and decided to do the online course to be able to complete it in my own time.
It is very easy to follow and understand. It provides future teachers with great ideas of activities to do during lessons and tips to better organize your classes.
Each unit is different, even though connected, with little repetition which prevents the course of getting boring. Being self-paced, you can determine yourself how much time you want to dedicate to each unit.
For the assessments, you get personalized feedback which I found very helpful.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the course.

Overall I found the course to be very good and well put-together. The (although limited) interaction which I had with instructors led me to believe that they were very competent, as they not only provided me with a grade but also gave feedback as to what was done properly and what needed improvement.

In regards to the area of Job Placement; there was little to no mention about job placement throughout the course other than in a theoretical sense. Unless I am understanding this topic incorrectly, I do not think there was much emphasis on job placement.

Improvements which I would make would perhaps include more videos to the course material, as the amount of reading required is fine, but can get very dry and draining to have to read consistently. Perhaps videos which simply had the same content, but in a more intractive and engaging wayy than simply reading.

Having just completed the 120hr online TEFL course, I have to say that I am very impressed with the course as a whole. From the moment i started the course, all the way up until last assignment, I felt like I was being guided and never felt lost! The modules are very thorough so i always knew exactly what i should be doing, and the assignment guidance was excellent. I could not recommend this course highly enough, definitely a worthwhile purchase and use of time!.

I decided to do my TEFL training with The TEFL academy as they offered a blended course in a city close to where I live. I wasn’t sure what to expect as the course was cheaper than most.
The two day intensive practical course was well organised with a good mix of teaching and tasks and I came out feeling well prepared and looking forward to the online part of the course.
I found it easy to log in and access all of the lessons. The way the course works with a workbook and an end of module task meant that it was easy to work through the course learning and then move onto the next module when the time was right.
When I did need help the technical staff were quick to reply to my emails.
I am really glad I chose to do my training with the TEFL Academy and feel ready to apply for jobs and start my teaching career.

As a study-a-holic I initially signed up for the course out of interest. However, it soon became apparent that everything my family and friends had been saying about me going into teaching was in fact true. I LOVED IT! I have done many courses, but never one entirely on-line (with some classroom time). The course was very well laid out, logical and easy to follow. Even the dreaded Grammar unit was well planned out (even if we did all hate it!!). It was really good to be able to be tested after each unit and get instant results. The assignments were worthwhile and I enjoyed doing them. This course is not an easy option or a skive, be prepared to work hard on it, but you will certainly be glad you did. I feel proud that I have passed with flying colours and cannot wait to get stuck into my first adventure, wherever that may be. Thank you TEFL Academy. Keep up the good work.

I hugely enjoyed the time spent completing my 120 hour TEFL qualification. The TEFL Academy staff (tutors and administrative staff) were nothing but helpful throughout the course of the six months, and were incredibly accommodating when I thought I might have needed some extra days at the end of the six month period. I felt supported and encouraged at all stages, and the feedback at the end of each of the two final assessment pieces was helpful and constructive.
I would 100% recommend this as a qualification to anyone who harbours even the slightest interest in teaching – not only are there a wealth of jobs available to holders of the 120 hour TEFL course, but it also stands in excellent stead for a teaching degree at a later stage!

I was delighted with the 120 hour online course I recently completed. I felt it covered ever aspect of teaching in detail. I found the course being broken up into 10 manageable modules really suited me. I found communication with the course tutors to be a really positive experience; receiving prompt replies with just the help I needed. Personally I found the grammar module challenging as there is so much content. There was obviously no contact with students as this was an online course which was fine for me as I am a teacher but others may want that experience.

I am very pleased I have done this course, it was definitely value for money. I enjoyed completing the online modules with my own pace and I found the 2 day face to face training days essential and also very useful. We were a small group with an excellent tutor, we learnt a lot from each other and most of us are still keeping in touch:)

I have just completed my 120 hour Tefl course. I found this course to be challenging and very informative and is devised in such a manner to be as useful as possible. Each module dove tails seamlessly and I found it to be tremendously useful and interesting particularly the grammar aspects. I am a native English speaker and I haven’t taught before so i’m looking forward to putting my newly acquired skills to use! Many thanks to all the team at the Tefl academy who are very helpful and supportive a brilliant course.

I was looking for an online course as there wasn’t much to choose from close to where I live that didn’t charge exorbitant fees. I chose The TEFL Academy after looking at several. I researched their credentials and compared prices and thought that at least for the cost aspect, I had nothing to lose.

I was impressed with the quality of the lessons which were very thorough. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it might be which I appreciated as, that way, I knew I was learning something new all the time. As a former teacher I needed to learn the new methodology and lesson plan formats and that is where I especially appreciated the thoroughness.

Like anything, you get what you put into it. You could pass the course but to really get the most out of what it has to offer it’s a good idea to read all the extra links for research that they provided at the end of all the modules. They each had a purpose and I’m confident that they are part of the reason that I got the grades that I did. A lot were useful in preparing my end of course assignments and I know I will use some in preparing my lessons going forward.

Even though we are at opposite time zones, (I’m in Canada), the feedback always came quickly and they throughly answered my questions. The end of course assignment’s feedback was very detailed and, to me, showed how throughly my assignments were scrutinized. That was very much appreciated as I wanted to be sure, at the end of it all, that I had actually grasped what the course had been trying to teach me.
All in all, I know there are more “elite” courses out there but I can’t imagine being more satisfied with what I learnt and how I learnt it (though there were many times that I thought I’d never wrap my head around the concept), but, in the end, it worked and I did.

I can’t comment on the classroom instruction as I only took the online course due to my location, nor, the job placement as I have just finished the course and am just starting to look for online work.

As a ‘mature student’ I was a little apprehensive about ‘putting myself out there again’ – despite having taught for many years. For the last six years I have taken a ‘passive role’ as a creator of educational resources for the school market so the thought of teaching again was a bit scary – to say nothing of my concerns at ‘keeping up with the youngsters’ mentally (I have no fears physically as I am a dance instructor!)
The two-day induction course was a bit of a baptism of fire for me – being a student again took me right out of my comfort zone. But once I had overcome my initial fears I actually ended up really enjoying myself and gleaned a great deal from the experience. I had to overcome the same initial ‘anxieties’ when tackling the course on line as, I have to confess, it was a lot harder than I had been expecting! However, again, everything went much better than anticipated and with high marks secured at the end of the course, it was just the confidence boost I needed to return to teaching.
So a big thank you to the course organizers – for putting a spring back into this ex-teacher’s stride! I am genuinely looking forward to working though I recognize that getting a job will undoubtedly prove the greatest challenge. But it’s good to feel ready for that challenge – so again, I thank the TEFL Academy for making this potential career move possible for me.

I thoroughly enjoyed studying 120 hours on-line with TEFL Academy. The e-learning platform was easy to access and very intuitive. The course content was very appropriate, engaging and encouraging to take some independent research, which I really enjoyed doing.

In the 20 hours class session, the tutor was very helpful, knowledgeable and inspiring. Definitely his example stayed with me.

I will love to recommend TEFL academy to anyone whom is interested in pursuing their dream of teaching English as a foreign language, either abroad or at home; and whom is intolerable to the big amounts of paper work some other bodies might require of you for the same qualification!

Viva TEFL Academy! ^_^

The Course was truly impressive and exceeded my expectations.
The online course was so well structured and user friendly it enabled me to move effortlessly through each module and the respective activities.
Even the biggest technophobes would find the course easy to follow and it was very clear how to log in and pick up from your previous stage of work.
The content, especially Module 3 with the detailed grammar tuition was so well constructed and no stone was left unturned. At the end of each module the controlled test was pertinent to what you had just studied and all the references for further reading/examples were very comprehensive.
i really liked the summary of your progress through the stages with your module marks and running %s etc. It really enhanced one’s motivation and engaged you in your progress throughout the course.
The weekend course was equally impressive and well structured, flowing at the right pace.
Lynne, the tutor was a delight to be taught buy with her funny anecdotes, incisive teaching points and humour. It was challenging especially the teaching practice activities but she approached it all in such a way that it constantly engaged myself and my fellow participants who have now become good friends.
I went on to get a distinction in the course and I owe much of that to the quality of the course.
Having passed the course the biggest challenge is finding a teaching assignment. i have inquired with a few schools in Spain but it seems they are only interested in teachers with experience. This is where the after course support is critical in guiding students to get the experience required. I believe the TEFL Academy provide job boards/CV preparation etc. and is something I need to investigate further as I it is important to utilise the qualfication as soon as possible after attaining it.

I have been teaching English in France for three years and took this course to formalise my qualifications. I started using the practical strategies taught in the TEFL course for teaching English as soon as I started the course and was really impressed by how effective and useful I found all the different aspects of the course. The course was educative, enriching and I am really glad I decided to take it.

I completed my TEFL course over the summer and head out to China next week for my first teaching job! The online course was great, easy to follow and with plenty of resources to help you along the way. I also found the 2 day practical course far more useful than I had first thought, and it was great to get some experience with the group standing up in front of a class and leading a lesson. Any questions I had were answered promptly by the tutors and feedback was helpful. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

I found the course to be interesting, enlightening and challenging. I enjoyed the on-line modules and also learnt a lot; the format is efficient as well as being user friendly. The assignments were very useful as they brought all of what I had learnt on the modules together and made me visualize what it would be like to plan and deliver lessons.

I have just completed the 20 hours in class. Our tutor Chris was very knowledgeable and generous with his time. It was invaluable to meet and spend time with fellow students. Although the 10 hour days were intensive the time seemed to go very quickly and everyone was positive and happy with what had been achieved by Sunday evening.

Overall this is a very good course and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

The course was laid out well, easy to follow and flowed nicely. I have been happy to recommend it to my friends and family.
I had a couple of questions through the course and they were replied to quickly and clearly.
I can recommend the course and the jobs board provided, in fact I have already found myself a job and start next week…
All in all, if you are looking for a course this one does it all.

Before I started attending the online course I’d thought that’s going to be very difficult to study. But after first module I found out it explained clearly and easy for understanding, studying modules comes along with practice activities what makes studying more interesting. Every segment of teaching is provided and this course helped me a lot to improve my knowledge and my work.

I found the course very easy to follow and complete. Instructions were clear and concise and the modules were self explanatory. Difficult areas were dealt with well and information provided for all areas of teaching. I did find the first ends of course assignment a little vague , mainly because it was difficult to gage what the imagined class would already be familiar with. I decided to work from a fairly simple level and assume nothing and indeed in my feedback I was told I had gone over the basics unnecessarily. However, this is a small issue. The feedback I received for coursework was excellent and detailed. I’m very glad I did the course and I commend Tefl on their highly accessible informative course.

When I first started this course I underestimated as it was conducted through online and outside of Australia. However, when I was given my task I was surprised that the curriculum was deep and elaborating than I expected.
Especially when doing the last ending course tasks, personally this was such a pain to me. At that time what I felt was I was doing a university assignment, but on the other hand, this meant once I passed this course I will become the qualified trained TEFL teacher that this course produces.
I am eventually proud of myself now and would like to say thank you to TEFL Academy for my future career.

I have absolutely loved this course and can’t recommend it more! I took part in the 120 hour accredited course, 100 hours online, 20 face to face.

The 20 hours was completed over one weekend and covered various topics (very helpful!). The teacher could not have been more enthusiastic about teaching and having taught abroad before herself this was extremely motivating. Everybody was encouraged to mingle which also created a friendly atmosphere.

The 100 hours online was set out very well and easy to follow. At the end of each module a test was to be completed which was marked virtually straight away. After completing the 10 modules there was a further 2 assignments. Both assignments enabled me to use the knowledge I had learnt and put them into practise.

After having such a great weekend with TEFL I started applying for TEFL jobs through the websites the teacher had given to us. Thanks to this course I will now be heading out to China in March to teach! Very excited!!

I was coming at this course after a long break in education. In the back of your mind is the old saying “old dog new tricks”. However, my concerns were swiftly dispelled. The learning material is both interesting and fun. I found myself actually enjoying the different modules (well, English grammar is difficult at the best of times!). That said, you can go at your own pace. You can take a breather and then hit it hard for a few days. It is certainly a challenge but then that is what makes it all worthwhile. You also have a very friendly and professional team who are there should you need any help. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It has given me the motivation to continue my studies and for that I would like to extend a very big thank you to the team at the TEFL Academy.

The feedback was incredible, so helpful and easy to understand whilst also motivating. I started the course in the UK and travelled to Australia whilst still completing and was worried timings would make the course harder when seeking feedback but the team at the end of emails was incredibly efficient and I was never left waiting long for a reply.

Thank you so much to everyone involved in the creation of this course. Next stop: teaching in Vietnam!!

10/10. This TEFL Course has been absolutley instructive, has prepared me to be a better teacher with loads of instructions and resources and also provides perfectly with how to teach grammar, vocabulary and the four skills; Listening, Speaking, Writing and Reading. Moreover, I’m very grateful to the whole TEFL Academy team for their entire predisposition, so they have solved many of my doubts along the course.

Having come from a background in secondary English teaching, I found the content of the course surprisingly challenging, in particular Module 3- grammar. However, I have learned so much from the course and wish I had had such a detail of knowledge when I was teaching my students up to GCSE. I now feel thoroughly prepared and confident to embark on my new teaching career in France.

My initial weekend course run by Niamh also really enthused me to get going with the online resources. They are very well organised and I was never disappointed with accessing the materials online- only once were they unavailable. The sequential and logical nature of the materials means that you are always learning and then relearning the ideas and concepts, in order to build your confidence. Having completed the assignments, I was also pleased to be sent a template for job applications and CV to help me in the future.

Overall the course is fantastic value!

All of the workbook activities were useful and each Module was interesting and helped me with new skills. I really enjoyed the course. The instructions were clear and the feedback incredibly helpful. I found this course covered everything you need to know when teaching English. Thank you to all who were involved in the making of this course and to those who gave the feedback on my assignments – which were challenging but incredibly helpful with putting the skill to work. I am happy to have completed the course successfully. Definitely 5 Stars for the Tefl Academy!

The Tefl Academy is an amazing course provider. I recently completed a 120 hour combined course and I could not be happier with my choice, the 20 hour classroom part of the course was full of inspiration and information providing a great start for the online part. The online modules are easy to follow and give good examples and tasks to help break up the reading content. The tutors are quick to respond with anything you may be struggling with and the feedback received is very constructive and helpful. I have learned so much about teaching and even my own language through this course and I recommend it 100%!!

It is with great pleasure that I am writing this review. I found the 120 hour Tefl course quite intense. I never imagined this course to be so packed with information. I graduated from University years ago and working through this course I was able to review and perfect many things. I found the Phonetic part challenging but rewarding because let’s face it ….pronunciation is very important when learning a language. I have become more confident where Phonetics are concerned. I really enjoyed the course. The instructions were clear and if a student applied themselves there really wasn’t any need to ask a tutor for help. I feel this course covered everything you need to know when teaching English. I would like to Thank the tutors for their advice in the feedbacks and even though it can get annoying to have to re-submit an assignment it helped to correct errors that were made. All in all a good course,…not one to take lightly because like anything in life you must give 100% to succeed. I am happy to have succeeded and completed the course. I will promote the Tefl Academy in any way I can! Keep up the good work !

The initial classroom face to face teaching was outstanding.Be prepared for a full-on weekend.The tutor was skilled and up to date.
The on-line course was relevant and challenging and the material provided was balanced and current.The assignments all linked in well with the course and were helpful. Marking of assignments was prompt and feedback personal.
Perhaps a few more classroom management tips “do’s and don’ts” could be added for those with no previous teaching experience.
I would highly recommend the course which is professional and great value for money.

I thoroughly enjoyed studying with the TEFL Academy. I had searched around for online course options to teach English as a foreign language. The reviews didn’t disappoint for this academy online, and i can say that it really met those initial (hopeful) expectations that i had for the course. On competition of my last assignment, i felt very happy with my progress and the new knowledge that I’d acquired. The course’s content is really good as it helps to prepare you for different class types/ situations and overall it is very well structured for lesson planning. I would recommend this course to anyone considering it, as it’s not only affordable but achievable if you have working commitments and need to study online. this course has given me the confidence to teach much more effectively and professionally, so thank you TEFL Academy! And for your prompt responses to my quires.

I have never taught English in an official role so when I was aproached by a language school in Italy asking if I was interested in a position as an English teacher, I asked what sort of qualification was required. The TEFL certificate was highly recomended, so I decided to complete the online course, I found the course layout very logical and easy to follow with excellent grammar explanations and examples, theworkbook is presented in a way that prepares the student for the type of question format that they will encounter in the end of module exam. The lesson planning excercises really help and givea good base for the 2 end assignments, the course gave me the confidence to accept the work offer and taught me how to organize lessons according to my student needs.

This is a wonderful course that all people interested in teaching ESL should complete: especially non certified teachers but even those with teaching qualifications. The course assignments are motivating as well as challenging, and there is justifiably substantial emphasis on the need for meticulous and organized lesson planning which all teachers should prepare. I give an overall rating of 5 stars! Thank you! Gaby

The face-to-face course was also complete, the instructor had so much experience on teaching EFL students and answered all of our questions. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to boost their career as an EFL teacher.

I’m super happy with the course, everything in it is well thought out to give you complete knowledge, and also the ability to apply said knowledge. The lesson plans were fantastic, however they are a little convoluted when the grammar lesson needs to be tackled, that aside it is not a problem anyway just a little challenging to find the correct content when revising. The best part of the course for me was the written feedback, the course tutors obviously care about their reputation and students, the feedback was thourough and well written with clear appraisals and clear areas on where to approve, over all I would be more than happy to give the course 100% Thank you TEFL academy!

I found the 120-hour online course very clear and comprehensive with very helpful links to additional information. The 10 modules were all well presented and the 2 assignments very relevant to compound what had been learnt and how to use it in the real world. The instructor at the weekend attended course was excellent. Thank you.

I’m happy to complete TEFL course! It was breathtaking and it really has become the part of my every day life! I was involeved into it completely. Everything in the course is thought about in details.It’s easy to become a user of the course and, if you follow all instructions, every user, even not very confident one will manage to use it. I’m an experienced teacher of English from Russia and even having tutor experience and working as a teacher of English at schools, I found much new and valuable information in the course.If I had any problem it was easy for me to contact my tutor via tickets system. I received the answers very quickly. I enjoyed the face to face part of the course, which I took in London very much! Thanks to our teacher Liz, thanks to my tutor, thanks to everyone, who developed the TEFL course! I highly recommend the TEFL course for everyone who wants to try himself in teaching! I hope to find a good job abroad!

I chose this TEFL course because the Academy had good accreditation.
I had already completed all the modules and end of module test when I attended the two day 20 hour course in Ashford.

The training room was adequate although if a large group had attended it would have been very uncomfortable. Most teacher/training sessions I have attended or run have always included refreshments, the basics, tea and coffee, which were not available on this course and we had to provide our own, also as I had travelled from Italy, it would have been useful to stay in the same hotel, and I was surprised that there wasn’t any block bookings for hotel accommodation for the Academy.

I enjoyed immensely the online course and the two day classroom teaching. I felt that both were very professionally organised, challenging and fulfilling. I would highly recommend this course.

Thank you TEFL Academy

I have just completed my TEFL course and have recommended and will continue to recommend TEFL. I thoroughly enjoyed the 2-day intensive course and really did help when starting the online modules. Lots of material taught that weekend came in very useful later on.

The online modules vary in degrees of difficulty but the content material does cover everything you need to know for the tests.

I also enjoyed the 2 final assignments and gound the feedback for both very constructive and thorough.

I am now starting to look for relevant jobs and looking forward to starting a new career.

I chose the TEFL Academy course specifically because it included 20 hours of classroom time which I felt I would need. Online tutorials are fine but you can’t beat speaking face to face with an actual person. I completed a couple of modules before attending the weekend classroom sessions and think it was the best way, as I had an idea of what was to be expected and already had a few questions that I wanted to ask. I attended the course in Belfast, and found the facilities OK. The room in the hotel was a bit small for all of us, about 23 attended. It would also have been nice if there had been tea and coffee provided. Instead we had to go out of the hotel to the bar and get refreshments.

It was daunting at first to stand up in front of my peers and give a lesson but it is very good experience especially for me as I am quite nervous of public speaking. The tutor was excellent and made everything fun and interesting. The 2 days flew by.

I found the online work very well laid out and easy to follow. It is hard when you are a full time mum to find the time each week to set aside for the course but it was so interesting that I looked forward to this time. I learnt so much about grammar and tenses that I never knew and which will be useful in my life as a mum helping with homework aswell as when I begin teaching.

I am currently volunteering, teaching English to group of Syrian refugees. I find it very rewarding and it is a good way to build my confidence and experience. I hope in the next 2 years to move to France with my family and will start looking for teaching jobs nearer the time.

I whole heartedly recommend the 120 hour TEFL course!

The 20 hour classroom section was a great introduction into the course. This intensive weekend allowed you to meet individuals with the same aspirations and dreams, making connections for when you embark on your journey.

The 100 hour online section is quite an intensive course. You have to make sure to set time aside to really get into the coursework, do extra reading and make sure your knowledge is there. Not to get the grades but to make sure you’re fully prepared for teaching when you complete the course. The coursework itself is well structured and easy to follow and the feedback the tutors give you is really helpful and usually includes links to further reading and helpful resources which I found fantastic.

Even if only a small part of you is considering doing the course, just book it!

Having recently passed the 120 hour TEFL course at the academy I feel that it was a really informative course. It was lovely to meet Emma the academy tutor who had loads of advice and suggestions on how to teach various age groups and abilities. I meet some great people on the course and at 41 years old didn’t feel out of my depth! After the enjoyable 20 hours in the classroom I found the 100 hours online really informative. There was lots of information to help complete the tasks and assessments. Due to some tchnical issues I was unable to send my final assignment but with the help of the academy help desk they brilliantly guided me through what to do next… Thanks to them I successfully completed my assignments in the nick of time and achieved a distinction which I’m thrilled with. I’m just looking at various options to further my career but thanks to the academy for making the course so enjoyable and not making me feel useless!

The online component has been a joy to complete, with helpful tutors on hand to advise, they provide thorough feedback to ensure you progress through the modules with ease. The TEFL Academy has provided me with more than enough qualification and information to start my TEFL teaching career. Thank you to The TEFL Academy!

I have never completed an online course before or had much experience with computers before, however, with TEFL 120 hours, it couldnt have been easier. The course was extremely self explanatory, with videos and a ‘help’ ticket service, which was answered very quickly. The content of the course is extremely detailed and is skillfully designed to make the learner really understand the content. I have learnt so much and throughly enjoyed completing this course. I would highly recommend TEFL.

I chose to take part in the 120 hour Combined TEFL course with The TEFL Academy and couldn’t be happier with the results. I am now living and working in Vietnam, where I have recently been offered a job at a language centre.

In addition to arming me with all the TEFL knowledge I need, the 20 hour weekend part of the course allowed me to meet loads of great, like-minded people. A few of us have even stayed in touch and are planning to meet up on our travels.

The TEFL Academy has allowed me to turn my dreams into a reality and I couldn’t recommend it enough!

I found the TEFL Academy course to be an excellent introduction to teaching English as a foreign language – the course content, including lesson planning advice and grammar notes, was highly informative, and I feel prepared and confident to begin working as a teacher in this field. Feedback is outstanding and highly detailed. The contact time with the tutor was very helpful; the only thing which might help slightly more would be to have practice teaching a real class of students. Overall I was extremely happy with the 120 hours TEFL Academy course, and would highly recommend it.

I 100% recommend doing this course if you want to teach English. The whole course is very professional and well organised. However you do have to put effort in and the more you put in the more you will get out!

I really enjoyed the practical sessions it was an opportunity to create a lesson plan and put it into practice. Although you don’t need to have started the course before you do the practical class, i wish i had as I would have got a lot more out of it.

I found the assignments an enjoyable challenge as it consolidated everything I had learned. I found the feedback both fair and constructive it really helped me to learn more and give me the confidence I needed.

I found the course to be a very thorough preparation for teaching English in the classroom as it covered a whole range of activities and situations.
You have to put the hours in and include original references outside of the course materials to get a good grade. The 20-hour intensive classroom learning was very useful and our teacher Jo in Brighton was very professional. Well-worth the effort if you want to teach abroad.

First of all, this is an accredited course and it shows why. The teaching, materials, and student support have been handled to a very professional level. I felt confident that I am doing a legitimate course, made me feel that getting good grades would not be easy. That was very stimulating. The most significant aspect of any course was met, in that way.

The 20 hours of the classroom experience that I took in Bristol at the end of September was excellent. The tasks were challenging, the tutor was strict yet very friendly, she showed the best example of what to aim for when writing these assignments about the potential perfect classroom management and teaching manoeuvres.

I enjoyed the classroom experience for the opportunity to meet the other students on the course. The evening after each class made my head buzz, it was very intense. Although at that time I was completing my Masters Dissertation and was used to study a lot daily.

I have studied English as the foreign language from the nursery. Always had private tutor classes and summer visits to study in the UK and Malta. However, the TEFL teachings on Dogma and the Total Physical Response was an eye opener. The modern techniques of teaching have been fascinating to learn about and to reflect on. I enjoyed that the most.

The material, in general, was providing good transferable skills. Like the balance between dominance and control over the classroom. Such settle psychological tools would be helpful for any situation in life. I am thankful to have learned them. Also, with the idea of teaching the real class, the discipline is the most mysterious and concerning issue, I find.

The feedback was on time and lengthy. I got my first assignment send back to me and asked to be redone. It as the first indicator that I can not just submit some draft of a real work, that I must put an effort into studying and I enjoyed every assignment since.

The only issue that I got was the online grammar test. Because of the circumstance of panic that I got myself into by receiving the email that the learning must be finished in 2 weeks time when I started the test and the question did not change automatically after placing the answer, I pressed the Save button and got kicked out of the whole test with the declaration of failure. Nevertheless, the IT support helped me the next day and allowed me to have a second go. Then I realised that the faint and delicate button Next exist at the top and I managed to complete the test fine.

I am impressed that the certificate will is mailed through the post. I feel excited to see it.

Thank you for the experience. It was interesting, I caught myself talking about the course a lot and got three friends interested in starting it and one signed up for this course instantly in front of my eyes.

I would recommend the course.

If you want to do a TEFL course The TEFL Academy is great choice. Their webside is really clear and easy to follow. It contains plenty of useful information about how to teach and be sure you will find it challenging at times :). You have 6 months to finish 120 hours online course so you can do it in your free time. After you finish your course The TEFL Academy contains very helpful informations about making CV and cover letter and how to apply for a job. I’m very happy that I have done this course and would recommend it to anyone who might be thinking about going abroad and teach english.

Firstly may I simply say thank you – as I feel insprired and empowered by taking & passing the combined 120 hours course. A whole new world may now open up to me, having gained a distinction. Excellent value for money if one puts the effort in and applies oneself wholeheartedly to independent study.

The online resources were wonderful – ease of access, thoroughness of instructions and depth of material provided. The 20 hour face to face weekend training session – though held in a less than salubrious hotel room – was invaluable with Liz (our tutor) passing on her expertise in an inspiring fashion. The detailed feedback given on the assignments was far above the level I expected – incredibily helpful and enlightening as it was.

As I am already in full time work in another field I am yet to start searching for a job but the advice looks good so I’m sure I will take advantage of it if & when I change career.

I chose to do the 120 hour online course mainly for convenience around my work, and because I have had classroom experience just wanted to do the online part to give me the tools and techniques I need,,, and it was great!
The system is really easy to use, and it is good to see your progress and marks as you progress.
The lessons covered everything I needed from grammar forms, lesson planning and teaching techniques. It was really helpful getting comments and feedback from the course evaluators for the assignments I submitted at the end and I feel much more confident now about going out and teaching aboard, and look forward to what’s next 🙂
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone considering doing TEFL.

From lesson plans to grammar, classroom management and needs analysis the 120 hr course impressed and educated me in equal and efficient manner. I never felt overwhelmed. The 20 hr classroom segment was expertly overseen by one Mairead O Connor. She was thorough, engaging and and extremely pleasant. Thanks Mairead and TEFL Academy!

My teacher was really very good and course content is excellent with superb support from teachers online and administrative staff. Excellent guidence provided to plan lesson and what websites to look for.
I passed my course with flying colours and would like to thank you all for supporting at every step.

I am thrilled to have completed my 120 hour TEFL course. I felt that the course content was very varied and covered many aspects although confusing at times I liked how each lesson logically led on and overlapped with others. I enjoyed the classroom based part greatly, it was incredibly interesting how our tutor used students with other language knowledge to teach small groups and then these small groups taught these words to others, I thought this was a fun activity that allowed us to practically experience teaching at the same time as giving us a glimpse of our potential students experience. We were given plenty of handouts to help us understand the process. I found the feedback received online to be very clear, great advice was given and I was even advised on appropriate books to help further my knowledge. I was very grateful to be given a task on lesson planning as this is vital for lessons to run successfully thankfully there is a whole module dedicated to this so I was very prepared to tackle this task! Now I have finished I still have access to CV templates and job websites so that is the next mission. Thank you to the TEFL academy for helping me through, I only wish I’d done it sooner!

I did not have the opportunity of attending the 20 hours classroom course which I felt would have helped with putting certain aspects of the on-line course into context. That being the case, as the course content and design is excellent, it enabled me to pass with distinction.
The end of modules tests are a good way to ensure youve understood the module. The key terms are a very useful tool for revision. The time limit on some of the end of module tests I found daunting and my brain froze many times, especially when reading the questions. More time was needed to fully understand what is being asked in the question.
I learned English Grammar for the first time on this course and it was a very challenging and rewarding experience! The module on Grammar was definitely the most challenging and took the longest to complete as I did not want to hurry. In order to ensure I thoroughly understood every aspect I did a lot of extra reading for this module.
The assignments are very well structured to ensure that you consolidate your understanding of the course. I referred back to the modules constantly whilst completing my assignments. The instructions and criteria are very helpful with good guidance on what is required to get top marks.
I am not a teacher but the confidence I gained from creating the lesson plans and designing the tasks, is well worth all the effort and hard work and I hope to be able to put this into practice soon.
I would highly recommend the TEFL Academy.

I have just completed my 120 hour TEFL certificate. It was an absolutely fantastic experience. My favorite part about it was definitely the 20 hour classroom practice teaching. I had a great tutor called Ann, who was so helpful and encouraging. I feel that I have learnt so much through the TEFL academy, they teach you a lot of practical information that you can put into practice in a classroom. I am just about to head to Ethiopia (two weeks time) to teach english for this school year. I have been there for five weeks already to get a feel for things and what I learnt in the 20 hours was so useful then, now i feel even more equipped having done the 100 hours online.
My 20 hour classroom course was in Glasgow at the Jury’s Inn.

I found the course informative, engaging and genuinely very interesting. I loved learning about language skills as well as how to teach them. I found the materials given supported me during my end of module exams, and I found the end of course assignments were great in preparing me for future lesson plans. In addition to this, the feedback from the tutors who marked the assignment were also very useful.

Having completed the 120hr online course I was pleasantly surprised. I’ve studied other subjects online and this is by far the most comprehensive, easy to follow. I’ve learned so much. I’ve only given 3 stars in relation to practice teaching and job placement only because these were not part of my particular course and N/A was not an option. This course left me feeling prepared to take on a new challenge confidently.

The course was well structured. The assignments were clear and critism was constructive. The information supplied for each assignment was appropriate and helpful. Students are encouraged to undertake their own research. I feel that the course gives a good grounding for future teaching. Useful links to job sites are provided at the end of the course. I would have liked an acknowledgement of my score, but overall I am very satisfied.

I highly recommend this tefl online course. Not only does this course provide you with excellent resources, it also tests you on everything you have learned so far. The tutors are extremely helpful with providing guidance on the quality of your assignments and where to improve and how to make the most out of lessons with students. I can’t wait to put everything I have learned into practice.

Really enjoyed the in class course, it was a great introduction to see how many ways English can be taught. The teacher covered a lot of work and put my mind at ease about any worries I might have.

The online work was great. Lots of work but there’s loads of information available for beginners. I enjoyed completing the online work as it helps with lesson planning which we’ll be using a lot as teachers.

Thanks for the course!

I was unsure about what organisation to use to gain my TEFL qualification as there are so many to choose from. In the end I choose The TEFL Academy and am very glad I did.

The in class teaching was excellent, and so was the online work. The level of feedback was good and I feel confident teaching English.

If you are trying to choose a company to do your course with, definitely go with The TEFL Academy.

The 20 hour classroom event was educational and well-managed. The information was accessible and very informative.

The modules for the 120 course are well-defined and well written. While it may take a moment to understand how the online element of the course works in regards to the workbooks, it is ultimately very useful.

If the course may feel too easy while completing the modules, the end of course assignments are designed to ensure that the learner has truly understood the material – there is no hand-holding here.

The support ticket system was easy to use and resolved my issues promptly and without incident.

A very positive experience.

I really enjoyed all aspects of this TEFL course. The end-of-module tests were well-designed, and I think they constituted an accurate and fair test of how much of the module had been absorbed and understood. I also liked that later module tests had occasional questions pertaining to earlier modules, as it provided a form of revision and ensured that the whole course felt joined-up instead of being stand-alone modules.

The end of course assignments were both great at assessing how much of the course had been understood overall, and required quite a hands-on approach in implementing some of the theory from the modules which I found very helpful. The feedback I received was detailed and helpful – overall I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to complete an online TEFL.

If you want an engaging and fulfilling course in TEFL teaching, then this course is the best! Helpful and understanding, the TEFL academy really pushed me into doing more with my course and the 20 hour practical course helped with my confidence and the 100 hour course ensures you understand the foundation of TEFL teaching. Since I’m newly qualified, I can’t wait to get started!
