It was a pleasure to complete my TEFL course with The TEFL Institute of Ireland. Modules are straight forward to follow, detailed, and organised. The activities and videos throughout the modules were a nice aid to learning. During the current pandemic, this was a great way to invest in yourself, stay productive, and proactive.Highly recommended!

I recently finished the 120 hours TEFL, 30 hours TOEIC and 30 hours IELTS course and couldn't recommend it more. The layout of the website was very easy to follow (something I always take into consideration) and user friendly. If you're unsure whether TEFL is for you, look around the website for a bit before buying as there is plenty of information.In each module there were so many extra resources, such as videos, books or PDFs. Every module has to be completed before you complete a quiz and move onto the next one.Another huge positive is that you can take it at your own pace. They also have an app which meant I could study while on the bus to and from work.After each course you complete you get sample CVs, cover letters and lesson plans in some modules. They really do do their best to help you get the most out of your learning.The communication lines between the student and TEFL Institute of Ireland were really strong, too. If I had any issues I could email/message and they would reply promptly and in a really positive manner. If anyone is looking into doing a TEFL course, I would recommend this company.

I have just completed the 120 hour course and 10 hour virtual class room course with the TEFL Institute of Ireland, The virtual classroom gave a great insight into role of a English language teacher which was then followed up with the easy to follow independent online learning. I was very impressed with the classroom ideas provided and the level of detail which the online reading provided. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone thinking of taking a TEFL course and I am excited to begin my journey with the new skills that I have learnt. Well done!

The 120 Hour Online course is perfect for preparing for your first teaching job. By signing up to one of the internships I was put in contact with recruiters in Thailand and was quickly offered a position. When the Covid-19 pandemic worsened worldwide the communication from the TEFL Institute of Ireland regarding the changing situation was fast and clear. The course was thorough and easy to follow and the TEFL team was incredibly helpful right throughout the process.
