I recently completed the 10 Hour Virtual Teaching Practice with TEFL Institute of Ireland. I have to say I was a nervous wreck before the course but as soon as I met the lovely Michelle I felt comfortable and at ease straight away. It was a fun and major learning experience for me. I feel like I've walked away from the course with more confidence in my abilities and this wouldn't have been achieved without Michelle's brilliant teaching methods and assurances. She was so professional, so easy to understand and walked us through so much content in the space of the 2 days. I'm glad I completed this course!

Very supportive customer care. Workload is very manageable but needs to be done regularly.

I am currently undertaking the 120hr TEFL course. The course is extremely easy to navigate. The TEFL site is so accessible and the material provided is remarkable. I am really enjoying working through the material provided.The customer service with the TEFL Institute of Ireland is outstanding. Any questions or queries I had customer service were so helpful. In particular, Kate was a huge help to me. When I needed assistance Kate was extremely approachable and understanding. I am looking forward to finishing the TEFL course.

I have had a hugely positive experience with The TEFL Institute. The 180 hour Level 5 course has been extremely insightful. Each module has provided me with new ways of approaching my teaching and I look forward to applying the skills I have learnt. Kate, alongside the rest of the TEFL provided an excellent service. I was seen to immediately with any queries I had about the course along the way. I highly recommend.
