I decided to take a gap year after I finished my Leaving Cert. After going through the entire course online and getting accredited to teach english abroad I had the best year of my life in Shanghai. The week was spent teaching and I was able to travel around and explore during the weekends. I’m looking forward to going abroad again once I’m finished college.
Getting accredited to teach english as a second language is one of the best things I have ever done! The entire online course was really easy to follow and I was able to get help whenever I wasn’t sure about anything. I’m planning to go abroad next year to put my newly found knowledge to use! Thanks for all the help guys!
I have just completed the 240hr TEFL package and can honestly say I am so glad I chose this package as having learnt so much about the IELTS teacher preparation certification. I can see why it is such an advantage in the TEFL jobs market.
I did an internship for three months in Beijing. It was great fun and I enjoyed my time there. My host family were exceptional and helped me out with any problems I had during my time staying there! The monthly allowance was enough to travel around with as everything is much cheaper over there than at home here. I’d love to go back again to visit but during the summer this time!
My first step into teaching was with this programme & exploration into my potential as a teacher of English. The course was very well laid out and easy to follow once I arrived in country the co-ordinators were brilliant & encouraging to Native Speakers & Polish Participants alike. It's an intense experience but one that I will definitely be looking to participate in again. Thank you for the opportunity to teach, touch, learn, share & give.
I am writing this review for the administration. They have been to quick to respond to all my questions and understanding of why I needed help.
I loved doing the TEFL course, especially the fact that I could complete it online as I mind two children and was constantly being interrupted but it was easy to go back over things if I didn’t fully understand. Ian was very helpful throughout the course and made sure all my questions were answered quickly and in detail. I can’t wait to put my new skills to the test in Spain this summer.
I really enjoyed my time abroad after getting accredited to teach english. As a frequent backpacker, this was a different experience as I got to stay in the one place for quite a length of time. I got to know lots of the locals and made tons of friends.
I was very happy with the course and its content. It’s very easy to work your way through it on the online platform. I’m not sure where I will go teaching yet but I’m excited that it’s now a very real possibility. Thanks for all the help.
My now husband and I met before when traveling around Southeast Asia a long time ago. After taking your course we both went back and started teaching english. We have been enjoying ourselves here ever since! I hope to take the more advanced course soon.
I completed an internship in Spain during my summer break in University. I couldn’t have done it without all the help from you guys and the lessons I learned on the course. The host family were really nice and I met up with other teachers who where in the area.
Really enjoyed taking the course, I feel much more confident in the classroom now.
