I think the 120 hour TEFL course has been well worth my time. There are so many opportunities that will come from this course when I am a student travelling abroad. I have taken my time going through the different modules and taking everything in. The only criticism I would give would be to give the participants a longer time to complete the course and reap the benefits from it. I have really enjoyed it and can’t wait to start teaching English abroad.

This online Tefl course has been super easy to navigate and the support from staff is 10/10. If I ever have a query I email or message them on Instagram and get back to me within the hour it’s excellent customer service. I spoke with a girl called Sarah when I was stuck with something and she was very helpful and friendly.The course itself has been brilliant and I find it’s very easy to follow and to learn from.Would highly recommend to anyone looking to start a TEFL course :)

For future teachers who wish to improve their skills in the classroom, and who are actively looking to learn new techniques for teaching English as a foreign language, I would highly recommend trying the 10 hour TEFL Classroom Methodologies Course. I found it really helpful in building my own confidence in the classroom and Kate gave us a lot really useful advice and strategies for planning and implementing engaging lessons. Even though the course was done online, it was really practical and interactive and led to a very enjoyable experience where we got a chance practice some of the new techniques and skills we learned. Before, I would have been worried about how I would approach certain areas of English, such as grammar. This course definitely helped to overcome this! I cannot recommend the TEFL institute too highly especially Kate who went above and beyond to help me. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I have just completed my 180 hour level 5 course. This course was very informative and has prepared me in the best way possible to take on a role to teach English as a foreign language. Any time I needed help or had any queries Kate and the assessment team were always on hand and very quick with a response. I would recommend this course for anyone interested.

I started my TEFL journey back in 2018 but was unable to finish my course at the time due to life getting in the way. The TEFL institute, and Kate in particular, has been really helpful from the beginning by providing information about the courses they offer and now helping me extend my study time to allow me to get certified after all this time. I would recommend to anyone thinking of getting certified.

I am completing the 180 hour course and I have found the course to be fantastic. The course content is very interesting and the lessons are so interactive and accessible. It provides all the information you could possibly need to become an English teacher and the staff working for the institute are so helpful. They are easily contacted and will help with any queries you have, I have interacted with Kate in Customer Support and she was so helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in English or being a teacher, or if you want to see the world and have more opportunities. I am very excited for the future now and to see what opportunities this course will have provided me with.
