My experience with Tefl has been great so far I’ve been interested in doing this course for awhile and when I got into contact with Annelies Veenhouwer she had loads of information to give me to help me choose what course will be right for me and if I had any other questions to feel free to contact her. Annelies was great help. I look forward to starting my course here.

A new and different experience, with a welcoming and friendly staff. No need to thank them, because they do their bests for you in advance. However, my special thanks to "Annelies Veenhouwer" who patiently helped me a lot.

I did the 180 hour course. Response to any questions or difficulties I had was immediate and helpful. Lots of help and support from both the staff and my personal tutor Rachel. Any technical issues that popped up were delt with quickly and didn't hinder progress. Feedback was constructive and the modules were self explanatory and clear. The content was easy to understand and needed little alternative explanation.
