    I recently attended a Webinar hel by Jessica and Walter. It was extremely interactive and I found the information relayed by both very useful. Both were patient, upbeat and had all relevant information readily available when asked a question. Very worthwhile.

    I have enrolled for a course with TEFL institute today, so cannot comment on the course yet. But what is worth mentioning is very competent pre-purchase guidance. I filled in a "call-me-back" form not hoping for much response, but soon was surprised by an actual phone call from Ireland from one of the instructors, Walter Cullinan (I'm in South Africa by the way). He gave me some honest and competent feedback on my points of interest, provided some further comments through timely email interaction and I ended up signing up for the course.

    I just attended the webinar Teaching English in Europe: What You Need to Know, hosted by Jessica & Walter. It was informative and very helpful. I was very happy to learn about all of the options for TEFL teachers in Italy, particularly the increasing demand for private teachers.

    I've recently begun my 300+ Hr Level 5 certification and the lessons are clear and straightforward. The process to enroll was also simple and straightforward. TEFL Institute, including specialists and advisors such as Jessica Jeffery and Walter Cullinan, gives its students adequate support/help to complete their certification as well as giving guidance when looking for work overseas. I would highly recommend.

    The webinar took about 45 mins and was quite informative. Jessica and Walter were very open and helpful. Due to time constrains, not every questions was answered but considering it was only 45 mins - it was optimal.
