Fantastic! This TEFL Course has exceeded my expectations. It is very well designed and it thoroughly prepares you to teach English as a second or foreign language to people from different ages and backgrounds. Our Trainer was superb. She was super engaging, patient and informative.The course content was very organized and thorough, and helped me to learn new skills in order to be an effective teacher of English as a second language. Job placement works really well here. I got an English Teaching job 3 days later through them after finishing the course I also know a lot of other teachers who did this course and all of them have a teaching job and are happy teaching English in Buenos Aires. I made friends in the class and taught English to professionals from ciudad autonoma de Buenos Aires, which has been a super valuable experience. Highly recommended

The TEFL Course here was amazing. So well organized and thorough I cant imagine having completed my TEFL certification elsewhere. I’m really glad I chose this course at Buenos Aires TEFL. It has been an excellent learning experience with amazing Trainers and great job opportunities.The feedback from the trainers was both detailed and constructive.The trainer went out of her way to make sure all our questions were answered. The observations were super useful and the teaching practice sessions were an amazing learning experience. The Spanish lessons here were amazing. I have learnt Spanish before in Alicante but here in Buenos Aires the experiece was superior. Thanks so much Buenos Aires TEFL for the wonderful opportunity

I 100% recommend this Buenos Aires TEFL Certification course to anyone who is hesitant to take it. It is a very intensive course but really worth it. The class is not cheap and not too expensive. The Trainers will help you across all throughout the course and of course assistance is provided throughout the course and beyond. I loved my class because it was small and we all got help in lesson planning and similar assignments and I was surrounded by positive, supportive, and experienced instructors as well as with nice classmates. The feedback on the teaching practice sessions is invaluable and is always given on how to improve.Thank you very much for this wonderful experience, I will miss it!

Alumni Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with verified alumni.

Why did you choose this program?

Because it is a committed program, a small school and they offer personalized attention. It may seem obvious, but it is not. People here care about your progress; they are professional but friendly and always willing to offer help.

The program may seem to be expensive but it is not because you get much more than a TEFL certificate: you get life experience.

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

I had to organize on my own accommodations in Buenos Aires and my travel budget, of course.

I had saved money to come down to Latin America, take a TEFL course first, learn Spanish, which comes really useful and hopefully travel, teach and earn my own money.

Afterward, I received the right leads and will be able to start working soon, thanks to the school.

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

I would recommend seeing Buenos Aires first, allowing time to rest and enjoy the city before the TEFL course, which is very intensive and will not let you commit to any other thing possible. If it is possible for you, maybe add another great Argentina scenario before the TEFL, like Salta or Bariloche, in order to make sure that you have had vacations before the TEFL.

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

8:00 am - Get up.
8:30 am - Have breakfast.
10:00 am - Ready for school.
11:00 am - Attend methodology classes.
6:00 pm - Hang out with friends.
7:00 pm - Study and work on lesson planning.
8:00 pm - Cook dinner, buy groceries at local vegan shops and specialized products in order to prepare low calorie but great food with nourishing ingredients.

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

I was afraid of not finding any work in Argentina since the country has lots of social problems and, of course, after reading information online, I was afraid but I also received the right support from the school and job guarantee, and also the course director wrote a great letter for me, which I will use of course for any future teaching job.

Would I be able to secure employment after the TEFL?

Yes, of course. My advice would be to go to all the interviews that the school offers to connect you with and then decide what is best for you, what works out better for you in terms of time and money and to be able to commit to working in Argentina in reality.
