  • Who can do a TEFL course?

    First and foremost, an aspiring TEFL teacher must be outgoing and confident, and not afraid to make themselves look a little silly, especially when teaching children. Expression is a huge part of the methodologies to be able to get your point across. You’ll warm up to this in time and it all takes practice. 

    We suggest people to be at least 16 with a C1 level of English or higher. If you’re not sure, we have a free English test. We also would recommend people who work on their own initiative as it is an online course and you will need to be your own motivation. 

  • What can I do with my TEFL certificate? 

    As a TEFL qualified teacher, the world is your oyster. Our 120 hour TEFL certificate is fully accredited and internationally recognized, meaning you can teach online or around the globe. If you are looking to teach in your home country at a language centre or would like to go to the UAE, we would suggest you doing our higher level qualification, our 180 hour level 5 TEFL course, as this is the requirement in such competitive countries. 

  • What is the difference between the 120 hour TEFL course and the 180 hour level 5 TEFL course? 

    Both courses are your main TEFL qualification and give you the opportunity to start your ESL career. However, there are a few differences between them and the right choice will depend on your story and goals. 

    The 120 hour TEFL course is the minimum standard around the world. It is a lovely laid out course with 10 modules outlined in the course content. This certification can be used primarily to teach online and travel the world. It is the fastest route to getting a qualification. 

    The 180 hour course is a level 5 qualification and can be compared to a CELTA or TrinityTESOL. This course is harder and longer to complete, but worth it in the end as it opens up so many opportunities. This course should be taken if you’d like to teach in your home country or certain places in Asia. 

  • Do I need to be a teacher to teach English abroad?

    You do not need any prior teaching degrees or experience to teach abroad. Once you have your TEFL certificate, you are 100% able to work as a TEFL teacher. A B.Ed. will of course help your resume, but it is definitely not necessary. 

  • How are the courses laid out? 

    Our courses are filled with course content, videos, podcasts, reflective tasks, and tests. They are online courses and can be completed in your own time and from home. 

    Our 120 hour TEFL course has 10 modules with a multiple choice test at the end of each module. You will need 80% to pass. We offer free retests, so if you fail the first time, simply go through your coursework again and retake the test. All examinations are completed online and at your own pace. You are given 6 months to complete the course to accommodate for people who have full-time jobs and dependents, but ultimately it doesn’t take this long. 

  • Are the courses accredited? 

    The TEFL Institute is fully accredited by the TQUK (centre number: C000854) and ACDL (accreditation number: 2854-2540). The 120 hour TEFL Certificate is 100% accredited.

  • Are the certificates included in the price? 

    All of our accredited courses include a PDF version of the certificate. This is perfect for applying for jobs online or abroad. Sometimes, perhaps for visa reasons, you may need a hardcopy. We have options available, but there is an extra cost for print and postage.

  • How much time do I have to complete the course?

    For our primary online TEFL Courses, you have 6 months to complete your course. As seen in our average completion times, it won’t take you this long, but is just to accommodate for people who are, say,  full-time workers or parents. If you require more time, that’s ok! We have extension options. 

    Our 10 hour Virtual TEFL Course is completed over two days. Options for these days can be seen under “Upcoming Dates”

I cannot recommend the TEFL Institute highly enough - I completed my 180 Hour course online, and everything was top notch. The materials are thorough and well thought out, with loads of helpful links and external material throughout. The staff were excellent and very helpful, I spoke to Sarah and Kate - both the online and on phone support are great, with any questions I had answered very fast.If anyone is thinking of taking a TEFL course, the TEFL Institute is definitely the way to go.

Just received my Level 5 Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from the TEFL Institute. A big Thank you to all my fellow students who attended the Live Tutor sessions and asked questions, the answers to which benefited all in progressing through the various modules. To Lucy, Rachel, and Sarah who were always on hand to answer questions and were generous with their patience and advice. It has been an amazing experience and has given me the knowledge, skills, and confidence to move to the next stage and commence Teaching. Thank you all at TEFL.

Having completed the 120hour course with the TEFL institute, I have continued to study with them and have just completed the 30 Hour Teaching Online course. This is the perfect course for anyone considering online teaching. They provide so much resources to help you teach online and provide teaching platforms to get started with. Couldn’t recommend more 😊

Loved the 180 hour course!I was apprehensive at first as there as so many companies offering TEFL certification but the TEFL institute of Ireland really impressed me.The course was in-depth and I found my tutor Rebecca and the staff (Emma and Sarah) extremely helpful. If you are looking for a professional organization then you will find it here.

I have been studying the 180 Level 5 course which is very detailed and thorough. I like the course because it provides step-by-step modules, for example, it starts from the origins of English and how it evolves over years. I really enjoy the course materials and some references to enhance my knowledge. I am excited to complete the course and strongly believe that this would be very helpful for my career development in the long term. More importantly, I really like all the staff who were very supportive, especially, Emma Coleman.

FAQS
What If I’m Not Good At Grammar?

Don’t panic! In many cases your focus as an English teacher will be conversational. Most native English speakers aren’t aware of grammar terms; but you’ll cover everything you need to know during your course, plus receive a 70+ page Grammar eBook.

What Score Do I Need To Pass My TEFL Course?

Your TEFL course is marked through continuous assessment with end of module knowledge tests. You’ll need to score 100% to pass, and unlock the next module. If you don’t pass first time, you’ll be able to re-sit at no extra cost, so don’t worry.

How Long Does A TEFL Course Take?

The time taken to complete a TEFL course depends on how much study time you can dedicate each week and which duration of course or training package you choose. You’ll have 180 days (six months) to complete your TEFL course, which is typically twice as long as needed to finish our most comprehensive training courses.
