  • What is a TEFL certification?

    The “Teaching English as a Foreign Language” (TEFL) certificate, is the most commonly accepted certificate worldwide. This certificate allows you to teach English to non-native speakers across the globe. The main qualifications to get a TEFL is to have the ability to speak English at a native-level and then complete a course. You can complete a TEFL course either online or in a classroom. The different courses vary based on the number of hours it takes to complete.


    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.

    • 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 center 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.
    • 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.


    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.


    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.


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


    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.


    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.

I finished the 120 hour online TEFL course. I really enjoyed the course, I found the course content interesting and informative. I was a bit apprenhensive at the start but as I progressed throught the six modules I found my knowledge and confidence grew. The course is well designed and the modules logically follow each other and help to build your knowledge as you proceed through the course. After the 120 hour course I did the 30 hour Advanced Grammar and found this really really useful and brought together the basics I learned together.I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested to teaching English as a foreign language.

I recently completed the 120-hour Premier TEFL qualification and I now doing the 30 hour Teaching English online course and I am very satisfied with the experience! The content is clearly organized, well presented and the topics are full of clear examples. The ability to work at your own pace is a big plus, nicely fitting in with the other responsibilities you may have. The course is certainly an eye opener as to what is needed to teach and has a very positive tone to the material. The quizzes were very useful in highlighting important aspects of the course. I think these courses are a great way to capitalise on a skill many of us don’t realise we have and use it for the benefit of the non-English speaking world. This qualification is the key to opening the door to that world.

I couldn't recommend this course enough! I'm a single mom with a 6 month old and work full time.

However this course since it's entirely self study and allowed me to take it at my convenience, was a real life saver!! I can't wait to complete other specialty courses so I can further advance in my carreer. If you're looking to get your certification, don't look any further!

In the beginning, I wasn't sure which course would be the right one for me but The TEFL Institute of Ireland team were so responsive and supportive in giving me all the right information to make a decision. I decided to go for the 240 Hour Professional Course and I've had such a positive experience to date - I love how I can go at my own pace and all the materials are really clear and easy to follow. It definitely makes distance learning a lot easier! Something that also stands out for me is all the resources, guides and tips the team share on the website and social media about teaching in certain countries or even how to prepare for interviews - they think of everything! Looking forward to continuing my TEFL journey :)

Teaching English online is a fantastic opportunity for a number of reasons if you speak English and are someone who is sociable and likes helping others. Having just completed the 30 hour online course with The TEFL Institute of Ireland I learned that there are lots of different routes you can take in terms of where English Teaching can take you. These can range from the type of students you will focus on helping to the way you reach them online. You can work for yourself or for an established company who will provide the lessons for you. You don’t need to have any teaching experience in many cases where you work for established companies and it can be a great way to earn money on the go as well as giving you a fantastic insight into other cultures from the comfort of your own home or wherever it is that you currently call home! I would definitely recommend this course and the TEFL Institute who provide it.

I have just completed the 240 hour Professional TEFL course. I found the TEFL institute very helpful and they made it clear that if I had any queries - I could count on them to help me! The layout of each course is excellent. They provide a great mix of resources - youtube videos, mock exams, lesson plan examples etc. Having a quiz at the end of the each module was very helpful, and being able to retake the quiz until you got full marks was a great way of testing yourself and helped with remembering everything. I'm delighted to have my TEFL qualification and look forward to opportunities abroad next year. I would definitely recommend TEFL courses - they're enjoyable, great value and are a brilliant asset to have for the 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!

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 ❤️

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.

It is clear, accessible, flexible and engaging. I am so grateful to have found it as it has opened doors for me to find work, not only in Ireland, but in interesting and exciting places around the world!

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
