  • 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”

After being recommend by many friends and hearing great things about these courses on social media, I purchased the 120 Hour Premier TEFL Course and I received a free 30 hour Grammar course also.So far I am thoroughly enjoying the course. The content is displayed very well on the website / app, which are easy to access and I can complete the content at a time that suits me. The TEFL team have been extremely helpful and have been quick to solve any issues or answer any queries that I have had.

This is an excellent resource and I have to say the customer service is one of the best I’ve come across. They provide a useful and practical course for teaching English and the course is structured in an intuitive way. I heard about the service through word of mouth and I realised it is a brilliant qualification to have as an English speaker and I am keen to share the English language with as many people who need it going forward.Callum

I'm currently working on the level 5 180 hr TEFL course and the 30 hr advanced grammar course. It has been really interesting studying these courses and they make me feel excited for when I can work as a TEFL teacher. The content is detailed but simple to understand. As I am working through the material, I increasingly feel more confident for when I am qualified to work. I would definitely recommend looking at the courses available as there is a lot of support both during and after the course.
15:26 04 Apr 21
Absolutely brilliant! They provide such a broad range of courses and unlimited support, assisting in any queries I had. I cannot recommend them enough.

In my opinion the TEFL Institute of Ireland's 30 hour Teaching Young Learners course is one of the best online EFL specialist courses available for anyone who aspires to broaden their knowledge of TEYL. I found the course material to be highly in-depth whilst simultaneously offering a wealth of practical suggestions for effective classroom management. As far as I am concerned it ticks all of the necessary boxes required for a 5 star review. Kind Regards, Cathal O Loingsigh.

Amazing organisation! They are a great organisation offering excellent services. The team at TEFL are amazing and so helpful, in particular a lovely woman, Emma, in customer support who helped me this morning with a query. They are so easy to communicate with and always on hand for any questions! I'm currently studying my second TEFL course and could not recommend them enough!

I am so so glad I chose this company to start my TEFL career! I've only just started my 370 hours of coursework and I'm loving it so much already. Any time I had a query, no matter how big or small, I've always got through to someone who can help me out really quickly. Any issues/queries have been resolved/answered really clearly and efficiently. I had account access issues last week and Emma sorted me out so quickly, which is obviously important if you're trying to get through coursework! Everyone I've spoken to on the team so far has been amazing to deal with, and all of them have been really friendly and helpful while remaining professional at the same time.

I had an amazing experience completing my TEFL certificate with the TEFL institute of Ireland. Everybody I was in contact with was very helpful and communicative when responding to queries I had about the course and throughout the time it took me to complete it. The team also put on free webinars to help those completing courses begin to think about next steps for teaching. Ella also personally followed up with me after completing the course to ensure I was happy with my experience, which I was very grateful for. Would highly recommend the TEFL Institute of Ireland if you are looking to complete a TEFL certificate!

Bought the 120 Hour Premier TEFL Course nine months ago while it was on sale. So far I have found the course's content extremely beneficial and relevant for a career in teaching English, both in the classroom and online, and I feel much more confident in my ability to provide a first class teaching experience to my prospective students. On top of that the support I have gotten from Tefl's customer support team has been excellent, in particular from Emma, who provided detailed answers to my queries in a timely manner. All in all I would recommend this course to anyone looking into a career in teaching English. You won't regret it!

I joined this Institute a few months ago in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and the lock-down restrictions and I was worried that due to these conditions I would find it difficult, but I was completely wrong. The communication and customer service were absolutely amazing! Throughout the programme there was a few times I needed to ask questions and I was answered straight away. I talked with Kate and Emma on different occasions and they were both so helpful! All in all I found the TEFL Institute made my studying experience so fulfilling and I will continue upgrading my skills with them!

Ordered a Hard Copy certificate and there was a delay in getting it posted out, was unable to reach anyone by phone or email which I am accounting to the fact of COVID Lockdown and no one being in the office. Once I jumped on Chat, Kate was very helpful and able to update me on the status of my order right away. Only gave 4 stars due to the difficulty in contacting them by phone and email, chat function works great though so use that first if you have any issues.

I enrolled in the 120 hour TEFL course at the TEFL institute of Ireland and my experience was nothing short of great. Firstly, the price offered was competitive with other institutes and for a degree that lasts a lifetime was great value. The course itself and the interface where you learn is well designed and easy to navigate. As for the content itself I found the TEFL institute Ireland to be very competent in their delivery of modules and as a result I feel confident in my ability to apply the skills I have learned in a teaching role. I would also like to show my appreciation for Kate Cosgrave at the TEFL institute who's assistance throughout the whole process was excellent and helped my studies greatly. I look forward to using the skills I have gained at the TEFL institute of Ireland in the near future.

I have done a thorough search of the web on online TEFL courses and I eventually selected the TEFL Instite of Ireland; I am very happy with my choice as it is a rewarding experience. At the moment I am doing the 120 h Premium TEFL course and I extremely satisfied with the course platform, the methodology, the material, the videos,.. I am learning so many things!
I already look forward to my next course "Teaching English online", especially at these times online courses are the only choice teachers have to meet with their students and so it gets important to learn how to organise remote lessons and build a positive atmosphere with the virtual class.
I take this opportunity to thank the staff of the TEFL Institute of Ireland as they prove to be very professional, attentive, collaborative and sentitive persons.
Highly reccomend!

I signed up for the 10 hour Virtual Training course at the last minute, and I'm glad I did! Both tutors Michelle and Kate were very inspiring. They were extremely helpful and supportive. In fact, just watching how they handled the course itself gave me ideas to apply in the virtual classroom.

Having spent the last few months completing the 180 hour level 5 TEFL Certificate online, it was great to get that collaborative experience and added boost in confidence, while practicing teaching skills online. It was also brilliant to get feedback from tutors and other participants.

Well worth it!

The 120 hour Premier TEFL Qualification is a bargain! It is very thorough and relevant in its content. Being new to teaching, its brought me up to speed in a relatively short time.

At first I was not really sure if this was for me. I thought I may find it difficult to take on something totally new to me, as I am an elderly student. I also had some health issues at the beginning of my course. I need not have worried. From the very first contact I had with TEFL everything was absolutely wonderful. I had an absolutely brilliant experience. The staff helping me to do the 120 TEFL course were the most helpful and understanding people I could have wished for. All and any questions I had were answered and solved in no time at all. Every time. There seems to be someone available to help on the other end of a telephone at almost any time of day. The course itself is so very easy to follow and since I downloaded the app it makes it even easier to use and to access my course from anywhere, anytime on my phone. This was so helpful to me as I could not always access my computer.
On a scale of 1 to 10, Learning to teach English with TEFL is a robust 10, no doubt about it.
If you are considering a course with the TEFL Institute of Ireland, I say go ahead. Don't hesitate! You will not just learn to better use your own language. You will open up a whole new world of opportunities you never thought were possible.
Thank you TEFL . . .

I could not recommend this company enough. I signed up for the 5 month internship in Vietnam and headed off in January 2020. Unfortunately I didn’t get to teach for long due to coronavirus and schools closing, but the support I received from was invaluable. They kept in touch making sure I was ok and were only a phone call or email away if I needed anything. Unfortunately I’ve returned home early but will definitely be completing more courses with this company and recommending this internship to everyone ❤️

At first, I didn’t know what to expect when I chose the TEFL 180 hour - Level 5 course and was amazed by how user-friendly the course was. Each module is broken up into bite-size amounts so it didn’t feel overwhelming with information. The course included lots of links to books and videos and gave you all the materials you needed to progress quickly through the course.

I attended the TEFL 10 hour course today at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cork . I cannot praise our teacher Michelle enough. She was an amazing teacher who with her ice breakers got us to relax, mix and most importantly enjoy the course. Michelle is a superb teacher who has a bubbly, friendly and enthusiastic personality and is passionate about teaching. It was also lovely to meet Emma and Roisin, 2 of the girls who worked in the TEFL office.They too were great fun. The group bonded well due to Michelle's attitude and we laughed our way through the day. We worked in pairs and also in small groups. Towards the end of the day all of the students took part in an exercise to show what teaching skills they had developed . I must say that the day flew by. I would highly recommend the 10 hour course as it gives you such an inside into what real teaching is like in a classroom. Thank you Michelle for a fabulous day.

I had completed a 300hr TEFL course and it was absolutely worth it. Staff are super helpful and do their best with any question queries during and after you finish your course.
Currently, I had applied for a TEFL teaching position and received a response from Emma, the recruitment manager within a couple of hours. She was extremely helpful and encouraging which made the application process easy. Emma had listed all documents required and once I had forwarded them to her, she had sent off my application within a few hours. I was very impressed with how helpful, positive, fast and eager she was to get my application to the client but also her prompt replies and dedication in getting me placed as a TEFL teacher.
I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in becoming a TEFL teacher to take on a course with The TEFL Institute of Ireland as the courses are very interesting and set in a way to give you a clear understanding of each module. Staff are very friendly, dedicated and do their best to get you where you want to be.

I've been a teacher for several years in Korea and when I came across the TEFL Institute of Ireland's Master Course, I had to do it! I decided to pick the 300 hour program to get the best results in my teaching. TEFL Institute of Ireland has a really good course and even though I've taught for so many years, I have learned a great deal. Whether you are experienced or inexperienced, I would recommend you do this course. And best of luck for those who are completing their courses.

When I first started considering a tefl course I wasn’t sure which course was right for me and who to get my accreditation with. However with the consistent support and guidance of the Tefl institute of Ireland staff having chosen to do the 120 hour course with them I am confident I made the right choice. The course is jam packed but very well structured making the learning process both accessible and enjoyable!

The 180 hr Advanced Level 5 TEFL suited me so well alongside my current university studies and at times complemented them in terms of critical thinking and resource management.
It encouraged high standards and focused on exploring the ways of improving class cohesion and suitability to plans for different students.
It also had some really insightful podcasts and interactive videos that round out learning, overall extremely helpful and flexible.

I have done the 120 hour online and then on 22 Sep I did the 10 hour practical workshop in Dublin. Was really concerned that it started at 9:30 and finished at 7pm that I would be bored and fall asleep.

From the outset Michelle (perma smile), Kate and Katie kept the pace going, engaged us all in a great day of practical learning and good fun. It flew and my goals were fully achieved as after the 120 hour I felt good about the content but needed practical help and some experience. There were 12 of us and it was really a good and and a great group of people. Made a show of myself a few times.

Thanks again ladies and and look forward to working with you in the future.

So happy to have finished TEFL 120 course, it showed me how much can be done in a classroom to make teaching not only fun but more informative for everyone involved.

Yesterday, monday march the 12th, I completed my 120 h advanced TEFL courses. Those online courses are well designed and very useful. I've learnt a lot about the methodology, the materials ans the content ! I just hope that not being a native English speaker (french citizenship) won't be an obstacle to find a teaching job of English abroad.

Just completed the 120 hour TEFL component of a 240 Hour Master Class. Modules were informative; well structured and very educational. I learned a lot and have a greater appreciation of written and spoken languages and linguistics. The Great advantage of this system is one can do the training in your own time and start back into a module wherever you left/logged off. The browser, at least in my experience, was initially difficult to navigate. Compatibility was best by accessing the TEFL site using Google Chrome rather that Internet Explorer

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.
