I completed the 120 Hour Advanced TEFL Qualification and also their 30 Hour Online English Teaching Qualification, both of which I found really helpful in my journey to becoming an Online English Teacher. I cannot recommend this course enough, it's worth the money that you pay as these courses are very informative.

What a wonderful learning experience! The 120 h TEFL course that I´ve just finished has not only helped me get official recognition but has also been a highly enjoyable journey! The course material was relevant and up to date with current market tendencies, very well structured with lots of references for further reading and opportunities for self assessment . Strongly recommended to everyone considering a career in English teaching, especially to those who might feel overwhelmed by the scary amount of (often very costly) TEFL courses available.read more

I completed the 120 hour advanced TEFL course and couldn't be happier. I have been teaching English for a few years and was eager to get the TEFL qualification but didn't know where to start, it seemed overwhelming the amount of different companies and courses online. I just wanted the best quality possible for a reasonable price. When I got in touch with the TEFL Institue of Ireland the lovely Ola got back to me straight away. She was so helpful, giving me straight forward information and recommending the course best suited to my needs (not just trying to sell the most expensive one). Throughout the course I have had excellent support from the team and speedy responses. The course itself was interesting, stimulating and very user-friendly. I am very grateful to all the staff at the TEFL Institute of Ireland and I look forward to completing my next course with them in the near future! Highly recommend!read more

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 had completed a 300hr TEFL course and it was absolutely worth it. Staff are super helpful and do their best with any question queries during and after you finish your course. Currently, I had applied for a TEFL teaching position and received a response from Emma, the recruitment manager within a couple of hours. She was extremely helpful and encouraging which made the application process easy. Emma had listed all documents required and once I had forwarded them to her, she had sent off my application within a few hours. I was very impressed with how helpful, positive, fast and eager she was to get my application to the client but also her prompt replies and dedication in getting me placed as a TEFL teacher.I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in becoming a TEFL teacher to take on a course with The TEFL Institute of Ireland as the courses are very interesting and set in a way to give you a clear understanding of each module.

At first, I didn’t know what to expect when I chose the TEFL 180 hour - Level 5 course and was amazed by how user-friendly the course was. Each module is broken up into bite-size amounts so it didn’t feel overwhelming with information.

I attended the TEFL 10 hour course today at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cork . I cannot praise our teacher Michelle enough. She was an amazing teacher who with her ice breakers got us to relax, mix and most importantly enjoy the course. Michelle is a superb teacher who has a bubbly, friendly and enthusiastic personality and is passionate about teaching. It was also lovely to meet Emma and Roisin, 2 of the girls who worked in the TEFL office.They too were great fun. The group bonded well due to Michelle's attitude and we laughed our way through the day. We worked in pairs and also in small groups. Towards the end of the day all of the students took part in an exercise to show what teaching skills they had developed . I must say that the day flew by. I would highly recommend the 10 hour course as it gives you such an inside into what real teaching is like in a classroom. Thank you Michelle for a fabulous day.Trish,CorkI

I just completed the 120 hour advanced TEFL Qualification. I already have two years of ESL teaching experience, and I wish I had known about this course when I started. The content was well organized and it was easy to go through. Many of the things I learned through this course I had found on my own after many hours of research and reading, but thanks to the Institute of Ireland now I have a certificate to demonstrate that I know a little bit about teaching.

I had completed a 300hr TEFL course and it was absolutely worth it. Staff are super helpful and do their best with any question queries during and after you finish your course. Currently, I had applied for a TEFL teaching position and received a response from Emma, the recruitment manager within a couple of hours. She was extremely helpful and encouraging which made the application process easy. Emma had listed all documents required and once I had forwarded them to her, she had sent off my application within a few hours. I was very impressed with how helpful, positive, fast and eager she was to get my application to the client but also her prompt replies and dedication in getting me placed as a TEFL teacher.I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in becoming a TEFL teacher to take on a course with The TEFL Institute of Ireland as the courses are very interesting and set in a way to give you a clear understanding of each module. Staff are very friendly, dedicated and do their best to get you where you want to be.

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!

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

So happy to have finished TEFL 120 course, it showed me how much can be done in a classroom to make teaching not only fun but more informative for everyone involved. Also the online resources and book recommendations are beneficial for how and where to start when it comes to entering the classroom for the first time.

I often take online PD courses, and I found the option to save/print books being extremely useful. (I wish all online courses have this option available.) Looking forward to completing the rest of my 240 Hour Master Course!

At first I was very hesitant about committing to an online course with little knowledge of what I wanted to gain from it, but I couldn’t be happier with the course I chose to complete: Tefl 120! Not only was it laid out conveniently and packed full of teaching methodologies and even the history of teaching, but Ian himself behind it proved extremely helpful when I ran into difficulty with the course one day due to a technical glitch. Great content and great customer service! Would recommend!

Yesterday, monday march the 12th, I completed my 120 h advanced TEFL courses. Those online courses are well designed and very useful. I've learnt a lot about the methodology, the materials ans the content ! I just hope that not being a native English speaker (french citizenship) won't be an obstacle to find a teaching job of English abroad.

Just completed the 120 hour TEFL component of a 240 Hour Master Class. Modules were informative; well structured and very educational. I learned a lot and have a greater appreciation of written and spoken languages and linguistics. The Great advantage of this system is one can do the training in your own time and start back into a module wherever you left/logged off. The browser, at least in my experience, was initially difficult to navigate. Compatibility was best by accessing the TEFL site using Google Chrome rather that Internet Explorer

Was recommended by a friend to try one of their TEFL courses and was amazed by how engaging and user-friendly the course was. The course is broken up into succinct modules that provided me with a clear indication of my progress and made the completition of the 120 hours an anything but daunting task. I could continue to rave about my overwhelmingly positive experience with The TEFL Institute Ireland except alas I must now dash off to put my new qualification and skills to use in some beautiful exotic part of the world! And so my parting words are that I would 10/10 advise all aspiring English Language Teachers to choose TEFL Institute Ireland!ciao

    Online TEFL courses are the most affordable & flexible way to launch your teaching career. This is a perfect way to study theoretical material at your own time & your own pace.

    Combined TEFL courses are offering both online & in-class studying. They are a fantastic opportunity to get two TEFL certificates (theoretical & practical).

  • What is the difference between TEFL/TESOL/CELTA?

    TEFL – “Teaching English as a Foreign Language” certificate, is the most commonly accepted certificate worldwide. This certificate allows you to teach English to non-native speakers across the globe. The main qualifications to get a TEFL is to have the ability to speak English at a native-level and then complete a course. You can complete a TEFL course either online or in a classroom. The different courses vary based on the number of hours it takes to complete.

    TESOL – “Teaching English as a Second Language” aka TESL. Similar to TESOL students, as a TESL teacher, you would likely be teaching English in your home country to students who have moved or live in an English speaking country. In other words, they are continuously surrounded by the language and will be using it everyday outside of the classroom, unlike TEFL students who are likely learning in their home country.

    CELTA stands for “Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults” and is a very prestigious certification. In order to receive a CELTA, you must complete a 120-hour course along with six hours of teaching real ESL students. The majority of the programs are held over one-month and are full time. However, you may be able to find some courses that are part-time and are spread out over three months. The CELTA program must follow a strict regulation created by Cambridge University. Due to its intense nature and requirements, the cost also tends to be much higher and can be up to €1700!

  • What does TEFL stand for?

    TEFL stands for “Teaching English as a Foreign Language” – TEFL is the most commonly accepted certificate worldwide.

  • Which TEFL course to take?

    Confused about which TEFL course to enrol in? Don’t worry, as long as you can speak English at a fluent or near-fluent level, then you are eligible to take one of the TEFL Institute of Ireland’s regulated TEFL courses.

    Non-native speakers do sometimes find the Ofqual Regulated Level 5 TEFL course quite challenging and we understand it is essential for you to be sure that you are comfortable with your English language abilities before choosing which course to take. As a guide, we recommend that that non-native speakers have a minimum IELTS 6.5 score. If you are unsure you should take our FREE online level test below

    Complete The TEFL Institute of Ireland’s FREE English Level Test which has been designed to assist you with making this important decision.  If you have any doubts, request a call, and we can discuss which course would suit your needs.

  • Do I need a Bachelor’s degree to take a TEFL course?

    The great news is that you don’t need a degree to take a TEFL course! This is a common worry. Anyone with fluent English can enrol in one of our courses to become a qualified and confident English teacher.
    It’s good to know that a degree is a requirement in some countries to get a work permit such as Japan and Korea, but there are many opportunities for those without a degree to be hired.
    Even if you see an employer preference for degree holders I still recommend applying as they may not get their full quota and you may have so many additional skills that will appeal to hiring managers.

  • What’s the difference between Accredited TEFL Courses vs Government Regulated Level 5 TEFL Courses?

    Lots of people ask about the difference between our courses. For example, the 120-hour Premier TEFL course is what we would call one of our  fast track courses. This is the minimum recognised worldwide.

    • You have 10 modules to complete usually taking 4 – 6 weeks
    • Each module has a multiple-choice test at the end and you need 80% to pass
    • You’ll get your digital certificate on completion and can buy a hard copy from us if you’d like one with an embossed logo immediately

    Looking at the 180-hour level 5 Ofqual-regulated TEFL course by comparison:

    • Learners spend typically 10 – 12 weeks to complete the 11 modules
    • Since it’s a UK government regulated level 5 course the pass mark is 100% and assessments are multiple-choice plus open-ended answers. Don’t worry, you can re-attempt quizzes in order to get 100%. Our academic team will review your answers at the end of your 11 modules and may ask for some questions to be reattempted (absolutely normal). Some questions may require to provide Academic references.
    • You’ll get your digital coursework completion certificate from us after module 11, and following successful assessment from our academic team, we’ll be able to claim the licence for your Ofqual (government) certificate from our accreditation body TQUK.

    The Ofqual-regulated course range is certainly for those people who want to gain a higher-level more recognised qualification.

     

  • What are the benefits of completing a Level 5 TEFL Course?

    If you are looking for a professional, globally recognised, Government Regulated TEFL qualification; you should consider the online level 5 TEFL course. The Government Regulated Level 5 TEFL course is the same level as CELTA and Trinity Cert TESOL. Ofqual government regulated (UK) Level 5 TQUK qualification.

    The course has 180 hours of TEFL training, more than the minimum required and it’s a higher standard course and therefore, is more competitive.

  • What’s the age restriction to take TEFL course?

    There is none really, we usually say that if you are over 16yrs old, you can start completing a TEFL course. If you are looking for jobs abroad then the minimum age requirement is 18 yrs old or higher.

  • Are combined TEFL courses better than the online courses?

    We would always recommend attending practical training. If you have the time to attend one of our 10 hour classroom courses, then do! This will give you more confidence and it will put the theory from your online course into practice. The day course is run by our experienced TEFL’s teachers and you will learn the most important skills for executing lessons, from how to warm up the class, to using grammar in a clear and concise manner. This course is perfect if you have already TEFL cert and you would like to put it in practice. Some people prefer to start from the practical course and then do a 120-300hour TEFL course after.

    We have 4 locations where we hold our day courses in Ireland:

  • Am I too old to teach English abroad?

    You are never too old to gain new qualifications. Some employers might have age restrictions but others won’t. There are always options to teach English from home, private tutor, online tutor.

  • Do I need to speak another language to teach English abroad?

    No, it is not necessary to have knowledge of other languages. You will be able to find a job and work comfortably without knowing the language spoken in that particular country. The real question is, should you make an effort to learn a foreign language? Basic language is always a plus and we would always recommend learning a few phrases before you move abroad. Learn to say Hi, Thank you, Goodbye, Sorry. If you can order a meal and pay for that meal without automatically handing over the biggest bill in your wallet (whilst looking adorably confused) you’ll survive.

  • Which course to take if I only would like to focus on teaching English online?

    If online teaching is your primary goal, we would always recommend at least the 120 hour TEFL training. If you would like to specialise in specific categories, you can upper your qualifications by adding 30 hour specialist’s courses such as:

    • Teaching Young Learners
    • Teaching Business English
    • Preparation for IELTS Exam
    • Preparation for TOEIC Exam

    And of course, adding our 30 hour Teaching English Online course is a huge benefit as it focuses to prepare you (the teacher) how to enter online tutoring world.
