I recently completed the 180 hour Level 5 TEFL course and it was a great experience. The website was very to navigate, the content was interesting and very valuable and they offer lots of resources that you can go on to use in the classroom when you begin to teach. My assessor, Rachel was very helpful and helped me to get my certificate ASAP as I was under some time pressure. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to start teaching English abroad!

I really rate the TEFL Institute! It's been super easy to follow courses online and they are very quick and hands on to help whenever is needed - Ola has been a huge help to me and has offered solutions to all my issues. If you're thinking of teaching English abroad this is the institute for you!

I have signed up for the TEFL course back in December and can say the staff at the Institute are super approachable, very friendly and professional, especially Kate. The course (Teaching English Online) has been very informative, easy to navigate and is a great platform for continuous learning, especially for those who wanted to get language certified and a new perspective on how to put that knowledge to use in the digital era.

I have recently completed the 10 Hour Advanced Certificate in TEFL Classroom Methodologies Course which was held via Zoom with Kate Popova. Kate was really engaging, kept us all interested throughout the two sessions, we learned a lot and also had a laugh! I have thoroughly enjoyed it. This course also includes a Teaching Practice. It was great to get to talk and present in front of other students and get the hands-on experience of teaching! Kate was also ready to answer any questions we might have had and you have support also after completing the course. To summarise, although there was a lot to cover in this course, it wasn’t boring for a second, it didn’t feel rushed and we all felt the positive, relaxed vibes from the tutor! Highly recommended!

I started the 310 Hybrid Level 5 TEFL course recently.I had a technical issue to go from the module 2 to the module 3, and Olga was very helpful.I thought it would take me a while to find someone who will be able to assist me, but she went straight to the issue and told me how to fix it.She is a very helpful staff.Now I can continue the course, which is also very interesting and I look forward to being able to find a job with this certificate in the near future and start a career as an English Instructor!

I signed up with The TEFL Institute in January as a lockdown learning goal, and I have been kept very busy since then! I have found the courses challenging but doable, and I have learned so much already. I was contacted by a member of the team following my sign-up and was offered very friendly and swift support. I feel very positive that this course will benefit me as a teacher.My classroom methodology course hosted by Kate Popova was great and gave me and the other students great practice and confidence with tefl.
