I am new to The TEFL Institute, but thus far, everyone there that I have had the pleasure of speaking with, especially Tara, has been so kind, courteous and very helpful. She was so adept at putting my mind at ease and was very encouraging. I am so happy to begin this new journey with The TEFL Institute!!

Had the 10 hour virtual classroom with Michelle Benson this weekend. This was very enjoyable, interactive and gave me an excellent idea of what it would be like starting off teaching whether it be online or in the classroom. Michelle was very patient and explained everything that was needed. Would highly recommend anyone interested in taking this up as an extra or as part of their course to definitely give it a go!Thanks Michelle :)

I recently completed the 180 hour Level 5 TEFL course and it was a great experience. The website was very to navigate, the content was interesting and very valuable and they offer lots of resources that you can go on to use in the classroom when you begin to teach. My assessor, Rachel was very helpful and helped me to get my certificate ASAP as I was under some time pressure. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to start teaching English abroad!

I really rate the TEFL Institute! It's been super easy to follow courses online and they are very quick and hands on to help whenever is needed - Ola has been a huge help to me and has offered solutions to all my issues. If you're thinking of teaching English abroad this is the institute for you!

I have signed up for the TEFL course back in December and can say the staff at the Institute are super approachable, very friendly and professional, especially Kate. The course (Teaching English Online) has been very informative, easy to navigate and is a great platform for continuous learning, especially for those who wanted to get language certified and a new perspective on how to put that knowledge to use in the digital era.
