I joined this course a number of months ago. I went with the 120 hour course as I wanted to have a qualification to teach English. It is a very detailed and comprehensive course and the institute are always there to help and support you throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend this course to anybody.

Hi all, I’ve just completed the 120 hour TEFL course and am delighted to have completed it in a couple of months as I thought it might take me the six months . I found the course dashboard easy to navigate and the staff very helpful with any queries I had. I also learned a lot of new info regarding English language, grammar, vocabulary and the different methods of teaching classes. It was useful personally as it refreshed my memory regarding learning about verbs, nouns etc during my own schooldays. I am now looking forward to tackling the 30 hour online teaching course and the one day practical course to learn how to put it all into practice. Unsure which direction to go when finished as of yet but I am sure the staff will be available to offer advice on this. I highly recommend The TEFL Institute of Ireland to anyone interested in this career. Mary Gererdine Kelleher

I've just completed the 120-hour advanced TEFL course. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The modules are clear and well laid out, with links to further resources at every step. While the course itself is easy and intuitive to navigate using the website and mobile app, the TEFL Institute of Ireland staff are always willing to help should any issues arise. They've been very professional, kind and encouraging to me along my entire journey. One more thing: the mobile app is an amazing resource for busy people like myself. The course is interesting rewarding and fun.

I have just completed the 120hr TEFL course and awarded my certificate. The course was a joy to study and the online chat is extremely helpful all the time. Course is very detailed but very easy to understand. It's topics are very interesting and useful. I could not recommend this course enough in terms and I look forward to gaining more study and help from it. I love that you can revisit topics to top of and refresh your mind as there is a lot in it so it requires your full attention. If you are considering a TEFL course i would highly recommend this site. It was fantastic and extremely enjoyable.
