I am very happy with my decision to study for a TEFL qualification with The TEFL Institute of Ireland. Throughtout my course the support team were extremely engaging, helpful and always encouraging, in particular I would like to mention and say thanks to Sarah Foley and Rachel Hammond for all their support. They were also really prompt with their responses so I was never waiting too long for help. I would definitely recommend anyone who is interested in a TEFL course to enrol with them and I am looking forward to starting my next course with them and expanding my skills!
