I would highly recommend the 120 hr course. Good layout and easy to follow.

This course has given me the confidence to seek for an TEFL job abroad. The platform was easy to use and contained lots of resources, and the modules themselves were information, well-researched and contained thorough bibliographies which enabled me to research further on my own. I would definitely recommend this company.

I have been studying with TEFL.IE for the last couple of months, doing several courses(from an excellent value-for-money package with no less than 5 courses!) . Great customer service, and Emma just proved it again today. I completed and enjoyed the 10hr classroom class last week. It was taught by Kate, whose enthusiasm was contagious and she answered questions with patience and in a friendly manner. The course materials are interesting and well-structured. Very good support from the mentors who answer the questions quickly. So far a very good experience.

I really enjoyed the "30 Hour Teaching Young Learners" course. It is organised in a clear and logical way. Most of all I appreciate the vast number of materials you can get from it with lots of ideas how to have a lesson with (very) young learners and teens. I can honestly say that I recommend taking this course offered by The TEFL Institute of Ireland, especially for the price I got it for. It is definately worthy considering both for someone who only starts his/her teaching career, as well as those already having some experience, but looking for some new ideas or activities to use in their teaching. I've done similar short supplementary courses offered by other providers as well, but this particular one was so far the most comprehensive one.

Bought the 120 Hour Premier TEFL Course six months ago while it was on sale. So far I have found the course's content extremely beneficial and relevant for a career in teaching English, both in the classroom and online, and I feel much more confident in my ability to provide a first class teaching experience to my prospective students. On top of that the support I have gotten from Tefl's customer support team has been excellent, in particular from Kate, who provided detailed answers to my queries in a timely manner. All in all I would recommend this course to anyone looking into a career in teaching English. You won't regret it!

I was always intrigued to the opportunity of teaching English as a foreign language. The TEFL Institute helped me gain the necessary requirements to be able to achieve this and did so in a process which I have to say was pleasing doing. I have completed online courses prior to this and found some of them dull and forceful, although when completing my TEFL course I enjoyed it, I was putting in long hours and taking in lots of information but it felt light. It did not feel I had to force myself, I enjoyed it and it excites me for what is to come with my certificate and experience.
