  • WHAT IS TEFL?

    TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It is primarily teaching non-native speakers English without the use of translation. This means you won’t need to know their first language. TEFL teachers will need the knowledge and know-how of the methodologies to teach in this way. This is why teachers will first need to complete a TEFL course and gain the qualification. TEFL is widely used to either teach English online in one-to-one or small group scenarios or to teach English abroad and sometimes even used as an easier way to travel.

  • 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 DOES LEVEL 5 MEAN?

    A Level 5 TEFL course is one that is regulated by Ofqual according to their qualifications framework. Another Level 5 teaching qualification is the CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Once qualified with a Level 5 TEFL qualification, you’ll have access to the most competitive jobs worldwide.

  • WHAT DOES REGULATED MEAN?

    A regulated qualification means that it is officially recognized by the government and sits on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 180 hour TEFL course has 11 modules with a test at the end of each module, consisting of both MCQs and open-ended questions. This level 5 course has a 100% pass mark. All of the tests can be taken online and submitted. Our system will correct your multiple choice answers immediately and you’ll be asked to retake the test if not correct. You can retake the test as many times as you need. The open ended answers are checked by our assessment team and you will get feedback if your answers need to be changed. You won’t get an unlimited number of times and there may be an extra to repeat so be sure to take their feedback into account. Once our assessors pass you, your level 5 government regulated certificate will be issued. You are given 6 months to complete the course, but extensions are available if needed.

  • TELL ME ABOUT THE CORRECTION/ ASSESSMENT PROCESSES?

    All online course tests are corrected instantly, with the exception of our 180 hour Level 5 TEFL course. All accredited courses require an 80% pass rate and retests are free.

    The 180 hour level 5 TEFL course contains both multiple choice and open ended questions. The multiple choice questions are corrected instantly like normal, but word count is the only factor corrected instantly with the open ended answers. After every three modules, our expert assessors will correct your answers and give you some tips if an answer is not up to standard. Although the instant corrections are free to redo, you may be charged if your long answers are incorrect for a third time, so please take their advice into account when completing the reassessment process.

  • IS THE CERTIFICATE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

    There is a cost from the TQUK directly to issue the certificate. You can purchase this through our website and we will organize it for you.

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. I would highly recommend your 180 hour program including the 30 hour online module.Gerry Clancy

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.
