I purchased the level 5 TEFL course and I’m very satisfied with it. Easy to get through in my free time at my own pace.The Course goes into much detail about the ins and outs of the language and has great resources for teaching. The staff have been very helpful throughout especially Sarah Foley

I've had a very positive experience with the TEFL Institute, first with the 180-hour online TEFL certification course and recently with the 10-hour virtual Teaching Practice course. I would like to mention Michelle Benson, who took us through 2 great days of gaining teaching practice: her guidance was crystal-clear, hands-on, inspirational and rewarding, providing the group with practical tips and useful resources. In addition, the multicultural composition of the group was an added bonus. I would greatly recommend both the certification course and the practical webinar for anybody wishing to pursue a career in EFL teaching!

Finished the 120 hr Premier TEFL course. The course was detailed and easy to follow, providing plenty of examples and activities. The convience of the online course can not be stressed enough, especially for people that are too busy to follow in person/live online classes. I would highly recommend the institute to anyone wanting to obtain a TEFL certification.
