Having finished a degree in theology, I struggled to find work. I came across TEFL Institute of Ireland which was offering a great deal for its 120hr online course. It is clear, accessible, flexible and engaging. I am so grateful to have found it as it has opened doors for me to find work, not only in Ireland, but in interesting and exciting places around the world! I recommend it to anyone who wishes to expand their skills in a practical and manageable way (and for those thirsty for adventure!)

So happy to have finished TEFL 120 course, it showed me how much can be done in a classroom to make teaching not only fun but more informative for everyone involved. Also the online resources and book recommendations are beneficial for how and where to start when it comes to entering the classroom for the first time.

Just completed the 120 Hour Advanced TEFL Course. I took it as a revision of my full-time 4-year degree in English Language and Literature obtained years ago. I often take online PD courses, and I found the option to save/print books being extremely useful. (I wish all online courses have this option available.) Looking forward to completing the rest of my 240 Hour Master Course!

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!

Yesterday, monday march the 12th, I completed my 120 h advanced TEFL courses. Those online courses are well designed and very useful. I've learnt a lot about the methodology, the materials ans the content ! I just hope that not being a native English speaker (french citizenship) won't be an obstacle to find a teaching job of English abroad.

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

The course is broken up into succinct modules that provided me with a clear indication of my progress and made the completition of the 120 hours an anything but daunting task. I could continue to rave about my overwhelmingly positive experience with The TEFL Institute Ireland except alas I must now dash off to put my new qualification and skills to use in some beautiful exotic part of the world! And so my parting words are that I would 10/10 advise all aspiring English Language Teachers to choose TEFL Institute Ireland!ciao

This is an amazing online course. Very easy to follow and there is plenty of time to go through each module. The quiz at the end of a module is a great way of refreshing what you have learned. The best part is that each student is given a tutor when they sign up that you are free to contact at any stage throughout the course. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking into teaching at home or abroad.

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!

I found the course very informative and I have learned a lot about teaching English to language learners. The site was very easy to navigate. I also received a call from the institute the day after I had enrolled just to get some feedback as to why I enrolled and also informing me about other courses, which I found gave the course a more personal touch. Would definitely recommend.read more

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

After searching the web and getting really confused with levels of TEFL, I decided to go with the TEFL Institute as they seemed far more professional than other providers so took the 300hr Master TEFL Course and found it very engaging. Currently working in Spain with the British Institute in Seville. Never been happier it's amazing!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

This is an amazing online course. Very easy to follow and there is plenty of time to go through each module. The quiz at the end of a module is a great way of refreshing what you have learned. The best part is that each student is given a tutor when they sign up that you are free to contact at any stage throughout the course. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking into teaching at home or abroad.read more
