I just finished the 120 hour TEFL course. Well-structured, easy to follow, and exciting lessons. It is a real challenge to learn the modules and then test the knowledge. Helpful team.It was a fantastic feeling for me to achieve the result. I'm really grateful for it.I ve done the 30 hours Online Teaching Course as well. I had many different kinds of help, very useful websites, links, short youtube films etc....I feel more confident myself ...and I cant wait to start my first new online job. One of my friends used to work for an English Language Academy in Spain with this Tefl qualification, and she was really happy with it....and now.. I have also achieved this goal plus I got my online certificate..Thank you so much for it!

Hi everyone! I would like to say a big massive thank you to Michelle! I have done the 10Hour Teaching Course with her and I must say, she is one of the best teachers I've seen lately! The course itself was very enjoyable, profesional and short to complete! The benefits of it and the real teaching practice included are what gets you most to love this course and this profession! Anyone who thinks to try a new career in teaching, I suggest go for this particular course. Doesn't matter with which teacher you will be, they are all so great, helpful and professional. I strongly recomend booking this course and also strongly recommend booking any courses with TEFL Institute of Ireland. You guys, I think you stand out on the market! Thank you all for your support, your guidance, your motivation and your help through the courses!

I enrolled in the 120 hour TEFL course at the TEFL institute of Ireland and my experience was nothing short of great. Firstly, the price offered was competitive with other institutes and for a degree that lasts a lifetime was great value. The course itself and the interface where you learn is well designed and easy to navigate. As for the content itself I found the TEFL institute Ireland to be very competent in their delivery of modules and as a result I feel confident in my ability to apply the skills I have learned in a teaching role. I would also like to show my appreciation for Kate Cosgrave at the TEFL institute who's assistance throughout the whole process was excellent and helped my studies greatly. I look forward to using the skills I have gained at the TEFL institute of Ireland in the near future.

I had to ask to reschedule the start date of my course twice due to circumstances and both Eoghan & Kate P could not have been more helpful. I know was a big ask and must have been a huge inconvenience for them but they were very understanding and efficient in dealing with my this issue and kindly allowed me to postpone my start day.Thank you guys for this, I really appreciate it!

I have just recently completed The level 5 180hour course and the 120 hour course. I really enjoyed doing the course. It was really informative and full of wonderful information. I found it really helpful having the zoom meeting every week where I could ask for help or any other information. I really enjoyed the course and I cannot wait to get out into the world and start teaching.

It has been almost six months since I decided to enter the TEFL world by taking the 180 hour regulated TEFL 5 course through the TEFL Institute of Ireland and ... what can I say? This was probably one of the best decisions I have made in a long time. First of all, I would like to emphasize that the course is very dynamic, fun and contains all the necessary information that we should know about the teaching of English as a foreign language. For me this training has been excellent, very bearable (given the flexibility of study they offer) and I really feel that I have learned, being able to apply this knowledge to the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language, in which I am also trained.In the same way, the attention that I have received from all the members of the TEFL team has been wonderful, completely spotless; and despite the fact that thousands of kilometers separate me from them (I live in Spain) at no time I have felt alone, but quite the opposite ... I have felt accompanied and cocooned since they were there to help me in everything that I needed. I greatly appreciate my tutor, Rachel and Jacob, the TEFL academic director for the help they have given me and the patience they have had with me throughout my study time, it has been amazing! I cannot end this review without referring to my dear customer support friends Emma, Ola and Kate ... thank you for your help for being there whenever I need it and for having to put up with me! You all are really fantastic! I hope my new professional career in TEFL goes well and I look forward to studying with you again soon! Good luck to all of you and keep it up!
