Absolutely great and super useful program!

I completed the 4-week TEFL training intensive at Buenos Aires TEFL Institute last year and would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in a future teaching English. The content is engaging and interesting at all times due to nearly perfect planning and forethought.I have really enjoyed the TEFL course here in Buenos Aires and feel like I gained a lot of knowledge and understanding that I didn’t have before. I especially enjoyed the ESL classroom management section of the course or practicum. The Spanish immersion classes provided were super useful! Overall, if you’re thinking about taking a TEFL course with Buenos Aires TEFL, absolutely do it. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you for everything! You are all amazing!

TEFL Training in Argentina

My experience at Buenos Aires TEFL was very rewarding.A lot of guidance was offered throughout the course.The course had so many important things to take into account I increased my awareness of the English language, even as a native speaker. The Spanish lessons were super useful too. The program challenged how I viewed teaching the English language.My TEFL Trainer here was amazing! The resources they offer for job placement gave me the confidence and the network to reach out into the Argentina ESL marketplace, and to begin this new career. It really did help me become a better teacher, I have already recommended this course to a bunch of my friends and family.Thank you so much!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
It wasnt that easy to be found online, so I guess investing more in adwords or something like that would be useful

TEFL Certificate Course in Argentina

Buenos Aires TEFL exceeded my expectations and I can say honestly that there is no better place to earn your TEFL. Before coming here I had researched lots of other TEFL courses but this program was clearly different and better. The trainers here were consistently friendly and always on hand to provide support and answer any questions. They helped us with our CVs, getting to know Buenos Aires and its culture and just general living in Argentina.The staff here prepares you for what to expect beforehand, support you constantly during the course, and helps you secure a job after you graduate. Although the course is extremely intensive it’s completely worth it because of the knowledge you gain. In just four weeks I’ve learned so much about the English language grammar, phonology, phonetics, classroom management, and what do expect in terms of job placement in Argentina. I cannot praise this course enough.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
allowing myself some time off before the course since it is very intensive

TEFL Certificate Course in Buenos Aires, Argentina

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was really interesting and was able to teach me every aspect of being a good English teacher. How to use lesson plans and how to teach native Spanish speaker students. The Course layout and content was wonderfully presented and structured in an understandable and informative manor.I have been in the ESL industry without the TEFL, but getting one from Buenos AiresTEFL Institute really helped me in my professional growth. There are also plenty of job opportunities to choose from. Thank you everyone at Buenos Aires TEFL. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience.

What would you improve about this program?
maybe investing more on ads since it was a little bit hard to find online back home in California

TEFL Course in Buenos Aires, Argentina

I had a very positive experience at Buenos Aires TEFL. The course was rigorous and comprehensive with skilled instructors and valuable feedback. Everything I learned in this course helped me confidently navigate the English Teaching world and become a skilled and professional English teacher in an invaluable way. In addition to this TEFL course being amazing, it’s taught in beautiful European Buenos Aires where you can also get even better at your Spanish! There’s so much to learn! The TEFL trainers here are incredibly talented, patient and attentive; the staff is very helpful.
When I started teaching in Buenos Aires, I was surprised to find that many teachers didn’t have a TEFL certificate, so I was a step ahead of my peers and often got paid better because of my certification.
I would highly recommend this TEFL course in Buenos Aires to anyone who would like to become an English teacher or just to improve upon the skills they already have.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
probably the meat as it is prepared in argentina, always worth 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.
