I complete the Level 5 TEFL course (168hrs) and I was throughly impressed! the course delivered on everything needed to know about teaching English as a foreign language. The practical work was fun and I was given a lot of useful handouts to assist me in future teaching jobs. I plan to go overseas to teach and The Tefl Academy provided me with excellent information and help with searching for jobs. My enquiries were answered quick and the online course is easy to use as well as interesting and fun. Thank you Tefl Academy for helping me become one step closer to my travel dreams!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Many thanks to the TEFL Academy!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I have always wanted to do some English course which could help me improve my knowledge. Finally I came across TEFL courses online. All in all everything was fine and i feel satisfied with gettting the cetrificate I have been dreaming about.
The courses likes that motivate you, encourage you, make you create something new that can be suitable for pupils you are going to teach.
To sum up, I would like to say, that teachers should always long to teach better, be better, do better. if you love what you do, you are always ready to do it.

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

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

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

I’ve just finished the 120 hour tefl academy course. Overall it was a great experience. The course is well planned and easy to access online. The content was very well layed out which made the course very straight forward to complete. My tefl teacher in the classroom part was amazing and was a great help! The lesson plan assignments at the end were also great preparation for future teaching. All in all it was an enjoyable course at a very reasonable price.

I recently completed the 168 hour TEFL course. Overall it was a great course with lots of content that prepared me to head off to Taiwan in a few weeks. It covered all the basics of teaching English and provides several suggestions for lesson planning. I would definitely recommend first time TEFL student to take the 168 hour course as it also includes a 20 hour weekend course which was very useful and informative.

I really enjoyed completing the 168-hour TEFL course with The TEFL Academy as I believe it helped me become a better teacher. Each unit of the online course was well-structured; the examples provided were excellent and the tests were really helpful in knowledge solidification.
I would recommend this course as its content covers various aspects of teaching English as a foreign language stressing on ways to improve and diversify the lessons that would suit students of different ages and nationalities.

I just finished the Tefl course 120 hours and it is great it helped me a lot with my final exams. Every module is briefly explained and the exercises are great. And it will surely help me when I find a job as an English teacher.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It gave me new ideas that when tried out I obtained positive results. It was the answer to many of my questions and doubts that a new teacher usually faces.

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

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

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

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

Nice course, decent price.

We approached teaching for different level of students too.
Marks are fair and feedback is thorough too.
I really enjoyed this course and I recommend it.
From one unit to another is very encouraging and captivating.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you so much.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Therefore a massive thank you to the whole team!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I completed my TEFL course 120h and I’m extremely happy! TEFL academy was an excellent choice. First of all, the content we learned and worked with was very useful and enriching. We were given lots of tools, and webpages with great resources I personally didn’t know about. Secondly, the activities from the workbooks were easy to handle with, clear instructions. Finally, the final assignments gave me the opportunity to reflect on teaching. I definitely recommend TEFL academy!

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

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

Thanks for the amazing assistance.

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

I needed a TEFL certificate to teach English in China… I had a good experience with little to no problems. The course is straightforward as long as you put in the effort. The in-class training was the most enjoyable part due to having a great instructor. I recommended my friends to take the course.

I was pleased with my short-course with The TEFL Academy. It went by pretty smoothly: the course-materials; short welcome videos at every start of a new module; assignments & tests all came together perfectly. I felt that, I learnt a great deal through this course, all of this enhancing my goal of becoming a TEFL teacher. I am truly excited to see what the future holds for me as an English teacher.

I very much enjoyed my English course with the TEFL Academy. At first I had a hard time choosing the right option for me but as soon as I signed up with the TEFL Academy, I knew I made the right choice. The combined course was very informative and easy to follow. I got to meet interesting people and it taught me all the basics as well as the more complex subject matters. I now feel more confident to teach and feel excited about my future in TEFL!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My only feedback would be it takes a lot longer than 6 weeks to complete the course if you work outside the home. Other than that I loved this course!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I completed the 120 hour online course and it exceeded my expectations in every way. The programme is very user friendly and I had no problems with it whatsoever.
The course itself is broken up into manageable chapters that are given in a logical order that allows you to slowly ease into the material.
I would recommend this course to anyone considering it. It does exactly what it says in the tin.

The TEFL Academy provided a very well structured, easy to follow course that helped guide me to understanding how to be a successful English teacher.
The two day classroom training was also very rewarding and helpful as the instructor provided useful and relevant information. It was also an opportunity to meet other people interested in teaching English.

Overall, the course is challenging yet rewarding and I would recommend the TEFL Academy to anyone interested in teaching English in a foreign country.

All my life I’ve wanted to travel abroad and the TEFL Academy offered a way for me to do it and to get paid while living my dream! The course was very well planned and thought out because it went through different teaching scenarios, lesson plans, ways of teaching and anything one might expect to encounter in a classroom. It was well worth the time and effort and it will be very helpful for my future career!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Over the last three months I have completed the 120 hour TEFL course (100 hours online, 20 hours in-class). Overall I was very happy with both the online and practical components. The content is seperated into manageable parts which I found helpful being from a non-teaching background. After completing the challenging end of course assignments and 20-hour class I now feel far more confident in teaching my own classes. The TEFL Academy also provides some very useful tips on preparing your CV, links to prospective employers and indirectly it helps you network with other students and teachers.

I have been a primary school teacher for ten years and completed the course as I hope to move overseas. The course content was interesting and helpful, as teaching Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening in an English speaking country does not require you to think so explicitly about grammar and pronunciation. There was plenty of extra reading and resources available if I needed it, as well as lots of practise activities to check for understanding. The final assignments would be very helpful for a person new to teaching and a great stepping stone to writing your own when teaching. I recommend this course to anyone wishing to complete the 120-hour TEFL Training.

I had previously completed my teaching degree with my major in English and I have to say that I learned quite a lot. The information that was given from a teaching point of view regarding students speaking the language in class in front of other students made me re-evaluate my past experiences and the section about how to set up a lesson plan according to the skill that is being taught has helped me change my approach to teaching in the classroom.

Whenever I had an issue or inquiry the staff at TEFL Academy always replied within a day or so which shows how dedicated they are to make your learning experience as enjoyable as possible.

I have heard many negative things about doing courses online but I had no problems what so ever with TEFL Academy and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to complete this course online.

I am writng a review because I feel the course provided me with the information I needed to see if this career path is for me. I completed 20 hours in class and 100 hours online and I will admitt at times it was stressful but when I submitted my last assignment I felt a huge sense of accomplishment. This course really teaches you what you need and should know as a TEFL teacher and I am pleased to know I enjoyed the course work. I would often imagine myself in an actual class setting in order to complete my assignments.
Resources are provided but I only used a few and the job placement board is out of date. There are jobs still posted from 2 years ago so it may seem like a lot of jobs are available but this is not the case.

I am a qualified primary school teacher & did my TEFL Certification as a means to help find work overseas. I totally underestimated the depth to which the TEFL course goes. That being said, I learn stuff I had never learnt in my degree studies – which I found facinating. The modules were fairly set out & the fact that you have multiple test attempts & can review tests also takes a fair bit of pressure off. I thoroughly enjoyed the course work & the training weekend was well run & good fun too. I can soundly say I 100% feel more equipped now, having done my TEFL course than I did before doing it, in terms of going overseas to teach. I would highly recommend this to anyone!!

I took part in the 120 hour combines course with the TEFL academy.

I found the classroom part of the course very useful and interesting and the instructor was amazing. He told us about his experiences and everything that he has done during his time being a tefl tutor, he also helped us with ideas and techniques of teaching which were very useful.

The 100 hours online were also very very useful, they give you all the information you need to learn, it is very helpful having to complete work book questions too because it is a good way of testing your knowledge as you do the course. The assignments were really good practice of how you would put together and lesson and plan it all which is obviously helpful.
Feedback was quick and gave me a lot of information on what I done well and what i could have improved on but overall I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend it too others too do.

I am yet to go out into the world and teach but I feel highly confident after participating in this course.

Thankyou

I have just received my certificate and i feel really proud. As Im not a native English speaker i had serious doubts if I’ll be able to finish the course successfully. However the was no need to be worry about it. The whole course was well structured, everything was clearly explained and interesting. What i’ve enjoyed most was the practice part, the weekend we have spent together with the other future teachers was just amazing. We all got opportunity to practice and create our own lessons. I found it really helpfull as I have no teaching experience yet. I would highly recommend the course to anyone who would like to travel and help people to learn to speak English. 120 hours well spent. Thank you TEFL, it was my pleasure 🙂

As a third year student at Newcastle University, I wanted to complete my TEFL training over summer (between 2nd and 3rd year), in order to hopefully teach abroad after my studies!
Due to an unexpectedly busy summer my work ran over slightly into my third year, but TEFL Academy provided me with a great course that was really easy to complete online. The experience has taught me so much and overall the learning was incredibly enjoyable! I was able to balance my studies between the online courses and assessments, and time management was completely in my own hands. The course is very focused, with clear instructions and helpful tutors. It consists of 10 modules, each with a short exam to check your understanding.
TEFL academy provide many internships, advertisements for job offers to explore employment, and all this feels very achievable due to there extra support in preparing your CV and cover letter!
I am now beginning to research jobs across South East Asia, to hopefully travel and teach English after I finish University.
All in all a great experience, would recommend to anyone!

Although I got my MA quite a while ago, I really enjoyed being a student and taking a course at the TEFL Academy! The presentation of material was well-structured, the feedback I got was informative and on point, and the overall process of learning was incredibly enjoyable! Special thanks for providing links to wonderful resources any EFL teacher will be most happy to use. This experience was truly amazing and I never regretted my having decided to sign up for the course. I most definitely recommend the TEFL Academy to those who are still looking for a right TEFL school. Search no more!

The TEFL Academy provided a great course. It was so easy to complete online- had a great user interface, all of my concerns were addressed nearly immediately and the online aspect was so convenient. It was also a thorough course, giving me enough confidence to teach classes once I was certified and not giving me the chance to just skim through the lessons. Overall a great experience. Thank you!

Not once, I felt like I was bothering my tutors. The overall course is very focused on making sure that you understand what you just learned. I really enjoyed it, and would highly recommend it to anyone. I am currently working in China as an English Teacher and that is only thanks to The TEFL ACADEMY! So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

This TEFL course was recommended to me by a friend already successfully teaching English to foreigners for 4 years. The TEFL Academy is a well respected name in the teaching environments. The presentation of the content was clear and easy to follow.The PDF versions of the workbook made it easy to search for specific information and also to navigate material back and forth. The videos and resource material really added practical value to the skills needed upon real time market entry.

I was very impressed with tutor feedback and competency as well as the helpful attitude that came through in their commmunication style. There are extra support offered by the TEFL ACADEMY, for example in preparing your CV and cover letter as well as an opportunity to explore employment offered in several countries.

I can highly recommend this particular institution to train with.

The course content focused on the main areas of TEFL and the guidance in lesson planning as well as our instructor in Cambridge were spot on!
Throughout the course, there should have been an easier and a faster way to get feedback – this could have saved a lot of time. It would have also been useful to have access to the course after the 6 months – it will be difficult for me to make future lessons without the information I relied on during the course.
All in all, it was a great experience! I would rate this course as good going towards very good if a few things were to be improved. Thank you and all the best!

I am a full time teacher to students who have English as a first language. I found it very interesting to do this course.
There are many things which come naturally to English speakers- things we never think about, for example, the order of adjectives, I have never even considered that that is something which a non English speaker would have to learn! So I actually learnt a lot about the language I have been teaching for many years.
I found it very worthwhile.

The TEFL academy was a great experience. All their resources are up to date, and not boring or too old school at all. The overall course is very focused on making sure you understand what you just learned. The course has 10 modules but each module consist of 10-15 activities that make sure you understood each page. I really enjoyed it, and would highly recommend to anyone!

I’ve just recently completed my course. I must say that I’ve really enjoyed the course. The in class lessons are a big part of the course. I would recommend that to everyone. The lecturers give you so much insight as to what to expect in the rest of the modules as well as how to plan lessons. I just wish we would have spent more time on the lesson planning. As that is a major part of what you as a TEFL teacher will be doing and using. Other than that the course is structured well.

As a retiree who would like to volunteer as an English language teacher both at home and abroad, I was reluctant to spend a great deal of money to get a qualification. When I saw this advertised (120hr) at half price, I decided it was time to act. Little did I know how comprehensive and yet rewarding this would be. I only contacted the Academy once for a non-course inquiry. their response was same day, and their feedback on the final assignments was great.
The course content was amazing. I really struggled with the grammar parts (it’s a long time since I’ve had to consider grammar), but the comment that ‘we may never use it again but should know it’ kept me going. Overall, this was a very positive experience that I would recommend to anyone. Thanks.

I think the course was excellent. I have never had any kind of problems during the course, neither technical nor conceptual. The online platform is easy to use and very practical. The contents are professional, a lot of examples are provided and every aspect is well explained. I would have appreciated if more video materials had been included. Taking an online course has turned out to be a good idea for me because I was able to do it whenever it suited me. The quality of feedback was really high with a lot of detailed information given in order to improve. I recommend the TEFL academy!

I had a good experience with the 120-hour online TEFL course. I am currently teaching English in Spain and I found the course content very useful in my current job. Also, it was great learning and working on the class at my own pace. The quizzes after each module made sure you understood the material without being tricky. Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone looking to get their TEFL certificate through an online course. I did feel like the grading was slightly inconsistent on my two end of class assignments, but that is likely due to the different graders. I think that this course offered great, real-world knowledge and examples that will no doubt help me in my career as an English teacher.

The course content was very informative and the modules were achievable through instructive content and tests.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course and can’t recommend The TEFL Academy enough.

Thanks to TEFL I am delivering more creative lessons that are helping my students at Primary School.
This approaching to English is also useful not just for an english teacher but for teachers that would like to put a better input on their classes.
Though I am not an English teacher nor an English citizen, I am really pleased with all the resources I found during this course because they helped me to improve my English level in many areas ( Grammarly mostly) and encouraged me to help children with a language barrier to become more confident when they are at school.

This course was fantastic. I studied at my own pace as time allowed and completed it in just over 5 months (out of 6), completing modules occasionally.The typical time frame of completing the course is 4-6 weeks, which is easily attainable. The modules are well planned out and broken up so that we can truly learn from each section and not be overwhelmed with information. The course also provides good training which gives me confidence, with practice on lesson planning a good feature, including the two end of course assessments. The online functionality is refreshing and makes for comfortable studying. I genuinely recommend this course.

I thoroughly recommend the Combined TEFL course. I was apprehensive of the two day classroom instruction sessions but the instructor immediately made us relax and I felt completely at ease.

I was impressed with the instructors depth of knowledge and they demonstrated excellent teaching and coaching skills.

The two days were challenging and being immediately put on the spot for teaching practice was very rewarding (once the nerves/fear had subsided).

The two days prepared me very well for the online content and I was equally impressed with the detail the online content provided. I was very engaged in the module to test environment and the content flowed easily. The assignments were more challenging but followed on from the online learning very well and I had no problem adapting my learned knowledge to the assignment work.

The feedback received for both assignments was very positive and encouraging with excellent pointers to where I could improve.

All in all I enjoyed the process and the knowledge gained will certainly stand me in good stead for the next step in my teaching journey.

I have recently completed my TEFL with TEFL Academy and could not recommend it more. Each module was informative and interesting and were reviewed with an end of unit test that helped to cement my understanding of the topics. The assignments were great at applying the knowledge I had learned and creating lesson plans and an essay.

My experience with The TEFL Academy was great. Starting with the 20 hour classroom experience was a good choice for me because it made it so much easier to understand what was expected from me in the online course. The online course is filled with exciting ways to teach English as a foreign language. The 10 modules are clear and the activities are a great help to sharpen tour knowledge before going on to the end of module test. I also loved that fact that you have to pass the test to move on to the next module. The TEFL Academy is the best place to get a TEFL experience and certificate.

This was an excellent way of learning about and gaining some experience in teaching TEFL. The online content is extremely useful and accessible. There was enough material to fully prepare you for a TEFL-teaching career. There were plenty of exercises and end-of-unit tests to check your learning and understanding.
The practice element I would also highly recommend. You are given an overview of some of the main themes, an opportunity to ask questions about aspects you don’t understand, an opportunity to practice in front of other students and an opportunity to get ideas and tips from fellow students.
There are two final assessments which check your overall understanding and ability to prepare and plan lessons. These are marked with detailed and useful feedback.
This is ideal for those who have busy lives and need a course to fit around various commitments. It fully prepares you for the classroom without having to spend too much time and money and travelling.

I chose The TEFL Academy online course as it was exceptional value for money and meant I could fit studying into my every day life as and when I could. Plus, I live abroad so it wasn´t possible for me to do the combined course. The flexibility of online studying worked really well for me. I didn´t need to contact a tutor during the course but it was great to know that I could contact someone for help if I needed to. The structure of the course was easy to follow and I liked the fact that you couldn´t move on to the next module until you´d completed the last one and passed the test(s). As well as the modules, they provide loads of additional reading resources so the course really is jam packed full of information. It challenged me sufficiently and also really made me think about what it is to teach English as a foreign language and made me aware of aspects of both teaching and learning that I wouldn´t otherwise have considered. The assignments were especially challenging and the feedback from the tutor was detailed and positive. All in all a really positive experience and great value for money. Also, I received my certificate (posted overseas) within a week of passing! Thank you TEFL Academy.

TEFL course provides an outstanding opportunity to systematize and put things in your head in order, which could have been segmental before.

As a tutor with 6 years of working experience I had many various situations when I was supposed to act differently: choose another activity, pay more attention to eliciting, make sure that the students grasp material properly… TEFL course highlights these mistakes and provides real solutions for that.

It took me 5 months to finish the course but only because I was extremely busy at my (just yet) main job. However it is 100% possible to accomplish it during a month and a half.

Summing up the pros: well-structured material; lots of handy methods, activities and recommendations; useful resources for individual exploration.
As for the cons, I believe it would be great to add more information on national specificity and broader range of life examples covered, as for the most part the examples included Spanish, Thai and Arabian students.

Thanks again for the great course and will be looking forward for more interesting news and updates!

The course at TEFL Academy was well designed and extremely thorough. I loved that it was self-paced, because I have a crazy work/school life and I was able to study in my own time. While the site doesn’t have a phone app that I’m aware of, I was able to access a mobile-friendly version of the website on my phone so I could study from wherever I wanted. The frequent mini-assignments kept me from getting bored with the reading material, and each had a specific purpose so I didn’t feel like I was wasting my time by doing them. The final assignments were no joke, but I felt they were a fair test of how well I could apply what I’d learned and the tutors who marked my final assignments gave really insightful feedback. I have already recommended this course to several friends who want to get certified in TEFL/TESL. 🙂

After attending the workshops and completing the online course, I feel I have learnt so much with the TEFL Academy. The workshops were extremely helpful and the fact that you can complete the online course at your own pace was a huge plus point for me. I completed it in around 8 weeks but I feel it could’ve been completed in less time than that had I tried! Feedback from the assignments was very helpful and any queries I had regarding the course were answered almost immediately. I can’t fault this course at all and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is looking to gain a TEFL qualification.

Having worked as a secondary English state school teacher in the UK for 16 years in the past & having studied Linguistics in the first year of my humanities degree I thought that this would be an easy course for me, but it was hard work, challenging and yet very satisfying. From a teacher’s perspective it is well accredited, well put together, well structured, with very high quality lessons and materials. It took me longer than I thought, but that’s because the course activated my curiosity and so I did plentiful reading around the the lessons and topics. What interested me was the pedagogical approach being promoted by the TEFL Academy, which is inductive learning and sadly this student centred active approach to learning has all but disappeared from UK mainstream schooling and yet it it is clearly a pedagogical style which works very well; I’m looking forward to using this teaching style again. Finally the assignments at the end were rapidly marked and feed back was detailed and balanced. I paid the 50% discounted price of £125 for the course and frankly that is a bargain. Well done TEFL academy. I highly recommend this course, even just as something for an academically minded individual to enjoy doing for fun.

The course was brilliant. The online course was well laid out and I liked how it wouldn’t let you progress until you proved your understanding of the course so far. It also gives some structure to the course so you are not left trying to form your own. The classroom part really brought together everything learnt online. When I finished I got my certificate just a few days later. The course is brilliant value for money and I recommend it to anyone looking to get their TEFL certificate.

I have just recently received a distinction in the TEFL course with the TEFL Academy. I personally feel that doing this course was a great idea and it will help my career and personal development a lot in the future. I have unfortunately only done the online course and cannot really comment on the practice teaching. I have also not completed my CV yet so I cannot comment on job placements either. However, I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

An excellent course guiding one to reach maximum learning out of these 10 modules and assignments. All the modules are highly accessible and easy to get through. The tests are structured such that all cognitive level questioning are used. They are perfectly structured. Handling of the account to process fees was done professionally without a problem. Professional and accountable support was rendered when needed. I have referred a relative to do this course, specifically with this company due to the high level of competency.

I am so happy to have finally finished the TEFL course!! All the information given in the course was very helpful and easy enough to understand. I feel the course has prepared me substantially for a job teaching English. I can’t say much about job placement as I have not looked for a TEFL job just yet…….but TEFL were great at giving advice for cover letter/CV and job resources. I found the classroom hours to be the most effective and useful part of the course as it allowed me to gain experience presenting and teaching English to a class of children. The feedback given after the assessments were also great as well! Thank you TEFL xoxo

Hi all this is a great course to do. I loved the practical side to it as it showed me that I am capable of teaching. Its was a really fun experience. I loved how the onkine material has a succession and you can onky move onto the next section once you are finnished with the previous section. This helps you to remain foucused. In applying what I learnt to doing the assignments, I realised how much I had actually learnt.

I am so glad I registered for this course. It has taught me many important things, such as technical words. I now feel enlightened and confident in many areas. Every skill is very well covered. However, there could have been more explanation on teaching of various reading strategies. The course is well laid out but is challenging, especially the End of Course Assignments. The additional resources were very informative.

Regarding the timing mentioned (120 hours), I feel this is the bare minimum. So if you want to excel, be prepared to do at least 300 hours. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to teach English in the future.

I have recently passed the 120 hour TEFL online course. I feel this is one of the best things I have ever done. Being able to do it online and to find out if you’ve passed each module within a few minutes enables you to Do the course at your own speed. I learnt an awful lot at the contact time weekend, this gave me an idea of lesson planning and timing and an opportunity to ask lots of questions. Overall I would recfomend this course to anyone.

Recently completed this course and recommend it to those seeking an online option. I enjoyed being able to work at my own pace, as my personal time frame allowed. The only slight negative is that for the last two assignments students are to receive feedback within 5 days but a couple times the feedback came later. The feedback was constructive and concise but when working under a deadline for completion it does make a difference. That aside – it was certainly a positive course.

Obviously, I can not compare this course with any other but the experience with the TEFL academy has been great and I feel the course content definitely is what I need to start teaching and be ready in front of my first students.

The interaction with the instructor on the 2 days onsite course was superb, and the feedback I got when I got in touch with them to help me out was as good. The instructors know their subject and help you put you in the best position to succeed.

Their job boards is not the best but they give you extra internet sites to find work, so not a big deal.

Go for it if teaching is what you want to do

The resources were amazing and it was such a coherent course to follow. Feedback was given in just a few days and comments were fair and encouraging. It made an otherwise self directed course feel like a normal classroom setting and it solidified the online content with coursework practise. Very pleased with the qualification.

A friend of mine told me about “The TEFL Academy” and after reading their website I decided to enroll. Probably one of the best choices of my life. I enjoyed every module of this course and each of these modules helped me understanding all the process behind a lesson and the teaching. I loved the weekend of training in London, the teacher was prepared and gave us a lot of tips for this course and our future as EFL Teachers. Very satisfied with the TEFL Academy. Thank you for the opportunity!!

So glad I chose this company to get my TEFL certification from, they were extremely helpful when I had a question about my final assignments and got back to me quickly. I really liked the feedback from both of the assignments it really gave me an insight to how I was doing. The information was helpful and useful, I took notes throughout the whole class so that I could always look back on what I learned. The extra readings were also really great, I would recommend this program to anyone looking for a TEFL certification!

YAY!!! i have completed my course!!! Lots of important information gained. Also regarding the site it is user friendly. Step by step instructions i never felt lost. When assistants was needed the response was very quick and helpful. Currently i am helping a friend complete her TELF course but with another agency, i must say TEFL Academy is the most informative, the tests and exercises helped a lot. I have no negative things to say about this course, only very helpful and i can not wait to travel and start teaching abroad.
Thank you TEFL Academy!!!!

When I started my TEFL course I was thinking: this will bring me some didactic information to complete my actual knowledge acquired in the bachelor degree I hold, but my surprise was big as I realized it was a lot more what I was going to gain from this course. It was not just information that you need to memorize (and then forget), it was a very logical, well structured course that made me think before giving me the answers.
In this course I gained the confidence of a well prepared teacher ready to work and see the world.

Studying the TEFL course with The TEFL Academy was an exceptional learning experience and a very enjoyable journey. The overal course covered every basis of learning, and teaching the English language, and has provided me with the knowledge and skill to be able to teach the language to others and enlighten their minds. Every tool has been provided and studying this course has given me the confidence to embark on a new journey and opening up a whole new world for myself the the students whose lives I can potentially touch and enrich. Language is the light of the mind and we better understand one another globally when we can communicate. I am v
