Worth it

This course has ben very rewarding and I have learned lots of new
things from it. The job assistance and resources are invaluable and
I can’t wait to start my English teaching journey and travel the
world.The course content was excellent and prepared me for my
teaching practice which I began in the same month. I completed my
course in only one month and I was lucky that I could solely focus
on the course.Flor, the course director was amazing. She was very
quick to reply and assisted me with any course content questions I
had. Thank you all at Buenos Aires TEFL for everything!

Pros
  • intensive
  • professional
  • you can make friends
Cons
  • intensive
  • challenging
  • not very easy, but still worth it

TEFL Course in Buenos Aires, Argentina

I’d definitely highly recommend this course. It is well-structured and allows you to get a lot of teaching practice with lovely Argentinian students. On top of that, you have the opportunity to gain a lot of English grammar know-how in a fast and efficient way and learn Spanish too. This class was amazing because it made me step out of my comfort zone, I got over my fear of standing in front of a class and I learned so much in only 4 weeks! We also had a few unknown Spanish language classes, to put ourselves in the students’ shoes! The course is quite intense, but the end result makes it all worthwhile! You are thrown right into teaching practice sessions, which helps overcome that fear of standing in front of a classroom. The learning atmosphere is warm and friendly, full of light and also up to date with the latest. The instructors were always there to give a helping hand and I felt well equipped to start teaching immediately after. I had a great time. Thank you for everything.

Pros
  • well structured
  • professional
  • learn spanish
Cons
  • not knowing decent spanish
  • never been to latin america before
  • I did not have teaching experience
always looking for new adventures

Amazing TEFL Certification Course in Buenos Aires

TEFL Certification Course in downtown Buenos Aires!
An amazing TEFL Course in downtown Buenos Aires for anyone aspiring to obtain the TEFL certification. The TEFL Trainer here is just fantastic. The course is informative and completely effective in ensuring that once the course is completed you are ready to teach. The quality of the classes was outstanding. Learning to teach English to native Spanish speakers from different backgrounds and ages was a big plus. The Buenos Aires TEFL staff were kind and friendly, the location is safe and practical, and the benefit of common comfortable areas was a big plus. I would not hesitate to recommend this TEFL course in Buenos Aires, Argentina to anyone who is prepared to commit to 4 weeks of intense focus to acquire a useful international certification.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
not knowing the exact date Argentina would open up borders to international tourism

Why did you choose this program?

I loved the way this program has been structured. Lovely staff and very useful course. You learn a skill for life, absolutely worth it. I could not think of a better way to spend my gap year abroad. I am very happy with the results now, having chosen this program and not another one. Super valuable course with great teachers.

What did your program provider (or university) assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

Everyone at Buenos Aires TEFL were accommodating from the beginning. They answered all questions that I had, even nagging questions about their accommodations and other accommodations offered in Buenos Aires. They were always super nice, adorable. I had to sort out flights and health insurance, covid policy.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

Read the Murphy book and pay attention to the Trainers here, allow some vacation time before the program starts since it is very intensive in essence and you need to focus on the course, without any other occupations or hobbies, therefore you need to dedicate to the course and study and of course study a lot our lovely English grammar...

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

7 get up, prepare some healthy breakfast with coffee or Argentinian mate
8 breakfast and have a shower at the apartment
9 to 2 course, this part of the day goes by very fast
3 to 8 study, focus on the English grammar and lesson planning
8 to 9 dinner and rest, do always keep a healthy lifestyle, sleep well and eat healthy food

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

It was nerve-racking at first but the people here are great and they help you out, they also connect you with other students who have been through the same will provide you with more confidence and you will feel better about your decision because it is an investment in education, study and work so you also need to know what you are paying for

Any last recommendations for people considering this program?

I would recommend doing this during your gap year as a study abroad program because the fact that it allows you to work makes it more valuable, being given the opportunity to share my time with Argentinian students and being trained to teach native Spanish speakers is also a highlight and of course, it takes time and I will improve over time.
