I am currently doing the 300 hour, Masters Level 5 course with the TEFL Institute of Ireland. The course is great, easy to use, easy to navigate and packed full with so much, valuable, interesting information, which makes me so eager to complete my course and get my dream job of being a TEFL teacher! All the times I have been in contact with the TEFL Institute of Ireland they have been supportive, helpful and kind.

I’ve just completed my TEFL level 5 180 hours on line course and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The course is extremly clear, well organised and gives lots of examples including lesson plans to suit different age groups. I was able to access the material whenever I wanted and it allowed me to print all the course material including flash cards and other material to help me deliver my lessons. I have learnt a lot about language acquisition and now I have a clear understanding of the language development in young learners.I feel confident and motivated to work in a classroom. This course is perfect if you are new to teaching or even if you are experienced as it gives you a different perspective and lots of ideas.Great job TEFL Institute!read more

I’ve completed the 120hour course and it was really quite enjoyable. The site is very easy to use and the layout is perfect. Some of the course covers practical tips and information on the experience of actually teaching in the classroom. I’m studying to become a teacher, and of course I learned from this area of the course too, but I would think it very helpful for those who don’t come from a background of working with kids. Overall a great course, and reasonably priced- especially if you catch it during a sale! (Which they do quite often) Happy teaching!read more

At first I was very hesitant about committing to an online course with little knowledge of what I wanted to gain from it, but I couldn’t be happier with the course I chose to complete: Tefl 120! Not only was it laid out conveniently and packed full of teaching methodologies and even the history of teaching, but Ian himself behind it proved extremely helpful when I ran into difficulty with the course one day due to a technical glitch. Great content and great customer service! Would recommend!

Just completed the 120 hour TEFL component of a 240 Hour Master Class. Modules were informative; well structured and very educational. I learned a lot and have a greater appreciation of written and spoken languages and linguistics. The Great advantage of this system is one can do the training in your own time and start back into a module wherever you left/logged off. The browser, at least in my experience, was initially difficult to navigate. Compatibility was best by accessing the TEFL site using Google Chrome rather that Internet Explorer
