I'm currently taking the online course at the TEFL Institute of Ireland. The course content is well curated, easy to understand with great examples.The institute's mobile app for iOS is fantastic and works seamlessly. The only thing that I would hope is added sometime soon, is the ability to bookmark a page on the app, so that I can return to it easily.I do use the website to read most of the course content, and it works well. I especially love the feature where one can download the entire module as a pdf to read through conveniently.The team at the institute have always been prompt with their responses to my emails, and I've had a pleasant experience so far.

I really enjoyed the 120 hour Premier Course. The content was engaging with plenty of interactive materials, e.g., videos. The quizzes at the end of the module helped to keep me motivated and I look forward to using my knowledge from this course to help me teach abroad some time in the future!

Hi, I have just completed the 120hr course and enjoyed every minute of it. While in Covid lockdown, I still felt supported and had 2 lovely check-in calls from Tefl. This is a self paced course and because it is available on multiple platforms, it is easy to complete on the go with progress and performance tracking visable and motivating. As a newcomer to Tefl, the course content was very informative and comprehensive, and I have no hesitation in recommending. I plan to do further courses with Tefl.ie and will definitely use their resources to further my learning.

I completed the 120 hour advanced TEFL qualification. I would highly recommend this course as it is easily accessible, I used their app for most of the course. It is broken down in to manageable chunks with a quiz at the end. There are also very good resources such as alternative reading materials to help with further reading as well as links to videos which will help me when i start teaching.
