I am currently studying with this company and find them fantastic .They are very helpful and respond so quickly to any questions I have had in the past and present . I recently had an issue where I managed to pay for something 5 times 🤦🏽‍♀️ as you can imagine it was a stressful situation. Rachel was AMAZING she called me first thing the next morning to let me know she had seen my emails and that she was sorting it. She was just so so lovely, understanding and so helpful and to top it off had the issue sorted in minutes. Honestly the support that’s provided is so good, I am so glad that I’ve chosen to study with them.Thanks again guys for your ongoing supportShirley

I have just completed the virtual 10 hour course. It is such a useful course to take, and it fully equips you for conduct English lessons even in such a short space of time! If you are considering becoming a TEFL teacher, whether in a virtual or real-life classroom, or teaching younger learners, this course is perfect for virtually any potential teacher. You learn so much useful information in an engaging and interactive way, including what to do during a lesson, how to conduct lessons, how to grab the attention of learners, and even more.I really interacted well with and got on with the other people in my class, through group work and full-class interaction. Kate Popova was an amazing teacher to us all and delivers the lesson in a clear way, including everybody in the tasks. Don't think that this course is about listening to a long lecture and endlessly taking notes - in fact, it's all about taking part, learning through practise and having interesting discussions! The best part for me was when we teamed up and delivered practised delivering lessons to pretend A1 English learners, as well as getting useful feedback afterwards. I don't think that the value of this can be undermined, seeing as you are practising exactly what you are going to do as a job upon getting this qualification, and then receiving advice from an experienced teacher in the field!We also received invaluable advice and materials from Kate on how to proceed in terms of searching for good TEFL opportunities, what to specialise in, what countries to go to, etc. Really, the whole thing fully prepares you to embark upon your TEFL journey!I fully recommend taking part in this course. It is truly remarkable and extraordinarily interesting. You will learn many things and gain invaluable experience, gaining a certificate to prove it at the end!Don't waste any more time, get yourself onto the 10 hour classroom methodologies course now!-EDITI also want to praise the 120 hour TEFL course. It is a very thorough and engaging programme, and can be completed easily and within a short space of time. As an English teacher, it is not only necessary for me, but I feel like it has helped to enrich me as a person and work better with my students.Consider completing the course, whatever your background!Big shout out to Emma. She has helped me enormously and always readily answered my phone calls and emails whenever I needed help. The team are brilliant! Thank you!
