Buenos Aires TEFL!

Over all I found the experience FANTASTIC, very nurturing, highly professional and one of the most educational experiences I have ever had. It was fascinating from start to finish. Their team in Argentina is friendly and helpful. The lessons were simply structured and professional. The course was never overwhelming and very easy to retain. By the end of the course I felt confident enough in the knowledge I had acquired to now set off teaching English in Buenos Aires and online.Over all a top class institute that is worth looking into should you wish to attain an onsite TEFL certification or upskill. Gracias!

Worth every minute of it

Very effective course.There are a lot of TEFL courses out there, but the one that I always recommend to friends looking to teach abroad is the TEFL certification through Buenos Aires TEFL, in Argentina. Unlike many others, it is internationally-recognized. This means that the teacher training will be recognized around the world. I was already teaching English online when I started this course but it opened up my mind to some great new methods of teaching that I hadn't thought of and of course if you have forgotten some of the basics of English Grammar - it greatly covers that too. Teaching English to native Spanish speakers is not easy, but after lots of classes, you will feel more confident about it. All in all, an excellent and very professionally created program.

Pros
  • great to meet people
  • great to build your resume
  • great to learn how to teach english
Cons
  • far away from home
  • time consuming
  • at the end of the course, you´ll feel tired but happy

Buenos Aires Tefl Institute

Rosa was wonderful and welcoming, so helpful and went above a beyond. The course is beneficial and I learnt a lot. The spanish lessons were also really helpful and it was a great introduction to Argentina and Argentinian Spanish. I got to work with children which i really enjoyed and had the independence to plan my own lessons for them which was wonderful. It was great practice and having to do written exams again was challenging but worthwhile. Really great getting to meet other likeminded people.

Pros
  • Cultural exchange
  • Spanish lessons
  • Learnt more theory

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.
