I have enrolled in the 300 hour Master Tefl Course. I am a Science teacher and I have found this course to be absolutely amazing. Before this course I took English for granted. I wasn't even aware that there is opportunity to teach English as a foreign language. Now I use it as a vital tool whilst giving instructions in my Science lessons. Thanks to Ola and Katie for lending assistance as often as necessary and as speedily as possible. I find all courses to be ideal for enrolment. the most important thing though is that the course in a logical sequence and is very user friendly and suitable for all learner learning styles. I must however say that having enrolled in the 300hr. TEFL course has made me into well rounded, classroom teacher.read more

Did a practical day course with Michelle. I would rate it 10/10. Made me understand the fundamentals of teaching and putting yourself in the shoes of students. Looking forward to starting the online course!

I chose to do the 300 hour course and I found it really good. They give you tonnes of resources to help during and after your course and the support team are really helpful. I would recommend it to anyone looking to qualify to teach English abroad.

I've been a teacher for several years in Korea and when I came across the TEFL Institute of Ireland's Master Course, I had to do it! I decided to pick the 300 hour program to get the best results in my teaching. TEFL Institute of Ireland has a really good course and even though I've taught for so many years, I have learned a great deal. Whether you are experienced or inexperienced, I would recommend you do this course. And best of luck for those who are completing their courses.

Scam, do NOT give these people any money! I bought the 180 hour course early October. Firstly the course is filled to the brim with typos and grammatical errors. Rather shameful for a tefl course. There are plenty of strange images, like one placing Poland on the physical location of Pakistan. But I finished the course and sent it off. This was late October or early November. I was told it would take 6 to 8 weeks. It wasn't until late in January I heard anything back, that they were backed up. I had to email them repeatedly, whilst being ignored until March. They then asked me to re-take 2 bits of the test, as a soundbit had failed to work and another part was wrong. Re-did both bits and sent it off. This was abiut a month ago. They have now ignored my last 3 emails AGAIN. I took their course and should have been done by end of January, re-take included. We are now halfway though April and they choose to just ignore me. These people will take your money and time and give you nothing for it. Please avoid!

When I first started considering a tefl course I wasn’t sure which course was right for me and who to get my accreditation with. However with the consistent support and guidance of the Tefl institute of Ireland staff having chosen to do the 120 hour course with them I am confident I made the right choice. The course is jam packed but very well structured making the learning process both accessible and enjoyable!

The 180 hr Advanced Level 5 TEFL suited me so well alongside my current university studies and at times complemented them in terms of critical thinking and resource management. It encouraged high standards and focused on exploring the ways of improving class cohesion and suitability to plans for different students.It also had some really insightful podcasts and interactive videos that round out learning, overall extremely helpful and flexible.

I have done the 120 hour online and then on 22 Sep I did the 10 hour practical workshop in Dublin. Was really concerned that it started at 9:30 and finished at 7pm that I would be bored and fall asleep.From the outset Michelle (perma smile), Kate and Katie kept the pace going, engaged us all in a great day of practical learning and good fun. It flew and my goals were fully achieved as after the 120 hour I felt good about the content but needed practical help and some experience. There were 12 of us and it was really a good and and a great group of people. Made a show of myself a few times.Thanks again ladies and and look forward to working with you in the future.John

The modules layout flowed well and contained applicable information essential for self-educating oneself. I found this course both exciting and rewarding as I can walk away with a wealth of knowledge of English grammar structure and syntax. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to complete a TEFL, at a pace to best suit yourself.
