I am currently studying the 120 hour course with the TEFL institute and I am finding it a great course. The course is well layed out and the website and mobile app are very accessible. The customer service is great, Sarah F, Eoghan and Kate answered my email queries promptly and professionally. I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing for a future in teaching English abroad or online.

I recently completed the 10 Hour Virtual Teaching Practice with TEFL Institute of Ireland. I have to say I was a nervous wreck before the course but as soon as I met the lovely Michelle I felt comfortable and at ease straight away. It was a fun and major learning experience for me. I feel like I've walked away from the course with more confidence in my abilities and this wouldn't have been achieved without Michelle's brilliant teaching methods and assurances. She was so professional, so easy to understand and walked us through so much content in the space of the 2 days. I'm glad I completed this course!

I have finished the 180 Level 5 course and I would definitely recommend it. It was very thorough, taught me a lot about the English language and its origins (which was very interesting!), brushed up on the grammar and learned things I didn't know before. I appreciated the repetition of some things through the chapters as they helped me solidify and review my knowledge. There is definitely a lot more in the course than what I expected, which is great because it has made me much more confident in teaching the language. I can't wait to start my teaching journey! Thanks to all the staff who were quick to reply to any queries as well, really good customer service :)

I have had a hugely positive experience with The TEFL Institute. The 180 hour Level 5 course has been extremely insightful. Each module has provided me with new ways of approaching my teaching and I look forward to applying the skills I have learnt. Kate, alongside the rest of the TEFL provided an excellent service. I was seen to immediately with any queries I had about the course along the way. I highly recommend.
