I have just completed the first part of the Hybrid Course and have really enjoyed the experience and getting back to studying and learning. The course is done in a way that helped me understand so many aspects of teaching without feeling under pressure or overloaded with work. Really enjoying the course :)

I've done a 190 hour TEFL course, and I have to say that tutor support on this course is just phenomenal. There were a good few questions in the quizzes I was not sure about, and each time I've contacted my tutor Rachel she has helped me to understand what I need to focus and replied exceptionally fast. I've often sent her an email on a weekend or in the evening, and each time Rachel did her best to get back to me asap. I'm very grateful for that, so big shout-out to Rachel. Well deserved 5 stars!!Also many thanks to Katie who helped me to enrol and get my certificate.

I have recently completed the 10 hour virtual TEFL course with classroom experience with Michelle Benson. This was a great experience to get a feel for how to structure a TEFL lesson and the small class size enhanced the experience by allowing everyone to get a chance to practice teaching. Michelle was very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable.

I have recently completed the 10 hour virtual TEFL course with classroom experience and I am very glad I did. I enjoyed the role-play setting of how an online class might work with elementary-intermediate students and Michelle Benson, the facilitator, did a fabulous job at it. She made sure we all had a chance at taking part in the activities and create a friendly and positive environment.I do recommend this course if you desire to gain some confidence as a newly teacher as the Teaching Practice gives you a little taste of what to expect while teaching A1 to B1 students.

I completed the 120 HOUR PREMIER TEFL ACCREDITED COURSE with the TEFL Institute earlier this year. I had no experience in this area and was drawn to the course during lockdown. I am an older student and hope to retire in the next five years and was looking for an opportunity to work from home after that. I had no experience in the TEFL area and was drawn to the course during lockdown as a possible opportunity. I am very happy to have completed the course. The materials and presentation was excellent. The course was well laid out with modules that were clear, and precise. I really felt that the opportunity that suited me best and that I would enjoy most was TEACHING BUSINESS ENGLISH ONLINE as I have experience in both business management and online training. I have just competed the TEFL Institute 30 HOUR TEACHING BUSINESS ENGLISH COURSE which was again excellent and I felt it really met my needs and confirmed that I want to go in this direction. I hope to start the 30 Hour Teaching English Online in the near future. Big thanks to everybody at the TEFL Institute of Ireland.
