I took my TEFL Certification course with Buenos Aires TEFL and found their approach to training very suitable for teaching English in Argentina as well as in Latin America. Being able to practice Spanish and being in touch with such a wonderful culture makes you feel you have done something right. The practice teaching sessions were varied in both age and student level and prepared me for the ESL teaching market in Argentina. I feel that their program is amazing because the classes are small and you receive personalized attention. Everyone at Buenos Aires TEFL has also been helpful offering advice and responding to inquiries in a timely manner.I would recommend Buenos Aires TEFL’s onsite course if you really want to immerse yourself in the Argentinian culture, work in Latin America and build relationships with fellow teachers. Thank you for everything!

Fantastic course! While it was rigorous, it was super rewarding to have gained both tons of knowledge and solid teaching experience. Classes are taught in such a unique, fun and collaborative way that cannot be replicated anywhere else.I cannot express enough thanks to my TEFL Trainer here and all the hard work she put into teaching us. She was always willing to help me and did so patiently.I needed the review of grammar, but more importantly I learned strategies and methods of teaching English that can be used anywhere and with different groups and ages. The class observations and the practice teaching sessions were paramount to my development as an English teacher.I would highly recommend it to others. It has been fun, taught me a lot, and it has been a great experience overall.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
probably barbecue the way it is prepared in argentina, absolutely amazing

I had a very positive experience in completing this TEFL Course in Argentina course. The learning materials were great and the instructions to complete the academic examinations were presented very clearly and the material covered all the important areas of English. The staff here is amazing because their communication was always so prompt I felt valued as a TEFL Trainee. Despite our time differences all queries I sent via email were responded to within 24 hours. The Spanish course was wonderful. I am so happy I learnt a lot of new things and I cannot wait to implement these in my own lessons.The diploma is simply beautiful and it fully describes the comprehensive content of the course and accreditations. I don’t have any negatives to mention. I will also gladly recommend this course to anyone wanting to teach English abroad. Muchas gracias para todo!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
allowing more free time to discover and experience argentina before the intensive course here

This is an excellent course, one that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get TEFL certified and get paid to teach English online or abroad. I would also recommend it to anyone who wants to find a way into working abroad or just into education and language teaching! The TEFL Trainers were helpful and provided extensive and valuable feedback on each of the assignments and academic examinations. The program touches on different ESL areas one will need to know, for example, lesson planning, ESL terminology, English language grammar and parts of speech, how to check for understanding and how to manage a class. The Spanish classes were amazing. A very powerful marketing tool but very well implemented and with very useful learning materials. This TEFL program has given me the confidence to teach English online and I am so glad that I made the decision to complete it through Buenos Aires TEFL. Thank you for everything.

This TEFL Course in Buenos Aires is very well designed and thoroughly prepares you for teaching English online or abroad, in a variety of teaching settings. All Trainers here are very knowledgeable and are always available if you have questions. I began this class feeling completely out of my comfort zone, but at the end of the program I left feeling confident in myself, in my teaching style and I had some amazing new friends from different nationalities. I feel so lucky for having chosen this program and tell everyone I know that this is the TEFL program to choose in Argentina.
The skills I learned here are invaluable and have helped me further my career as an English teacher. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to obtain a TEFL certificate. I doubt that there is any better tefl course in Buenos Aires so if you are thinking about doing a tefl course in Argentina, choose this one!

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.
