120 Hour Premier TEFL Course REVIEWI really enjoyed taking the 120 hour course. There was so much information in the course and yet it was broken down nicely into manageable modules.As well as the material on the course TEFL also points you to lots of useful online resources. I am excited to get started teaching online with the skills I have acquired on this course. I would definitely recommend the TEFL institute.I also took the 30 hour IELTS Preparation Course and the 30 hour Teaching Business English course. I found both these courses to be very helpful add ons to the main 120 hour TEFL course.

I did the 180 hour course. I'd definitely recommend it! The modules were well-laid out, easy to follow and in depth. If I had any queries at all the TEFL team was always there to help. Emma was extremely helpful answering any questions I had. The course provides you with a quality education, information and skills to succeed in teaching English as a foreign language. This along with the helpful staff, I would definitely recommend the TEFL institute to anyone interested in teaching English abroad.

The 30 Hour Teaching English Online was the perfect compliment to the 120 Hour Certificate. Comprehensive and engaging, the course also provided me with fantastic resources to get started online as a newbie.

The support, encouragement and just positive factors of this course are excellent. From start to finish, I was a thrilled student. Even after finishing the course, I requested access to my previous modules to download as future references. The customer service team were so helpful and allowed me back into my dashboard, brilliant assistance!!! (Special mention to Jessica and Katie for this).Extremely positive experience people, that's all I can say :)

Very easy to use website and fantastic customer service. Required assistance to understand what all was included in online guide bundles and was responded to promptly through the online chat service by a very friendly and helpful specialist named Emma. She was able to answer my questions fully and greatly aided me in choosing which course and guides suited me best. Thanks Emma!
