I enrolled in the 30 hour Teaching Business English Course. It was very straightforward and a good addition to my 120 hour TEFL certificate. There are recommendations for resources and websites at the end of most modules which will be very helpful in my teaching career.

I had a nice experience with Annelies via chat. Her response was prompt, she was quite helpful and guided me to the best option to continue my learning journey which was in a bit of a rut. Thank you, keep it up.

I have been very pleased with the Tefl 30 hour course I chose. I had to extend the time on the course due to a bereavement and the team couldn’t have been more helpful. Rachel Walsh sorted things out for me very efficiently. Many thanks 🙏🏻
