Oxford TEFL was a fantastic way to integrate into the teaching community in Prague. The 4-week course not only trains you to be a competent and confident English teacher, but it also introduces you to other teachers in the area. The staff are super supportive and care about your experience and helping you find a job after you finish, utilizing their network not only in the Czech Republic but all around the world, depending on where you want to go. My cohort had 12 people in it, and at the beginning the majority of us were planning to take the course and move elsewhere, but after becoming such good friends and falling in love with the city, nearly all of us decided to stay for a year after. The housing that Oxford provided during the course also allowed us to get our feet on the ground in Prague and take our time to search for something more long-term after.

So not only were the course and staff helpful for preparing us, but we also found a community in each other. Even though most of us have moved on since, the people I met there 6 years ago are still good friends today. That experience will last a lifetime!

How can this program be improved?
The only recommendation I have is more help planning lessons. Oxford has a library of resources for teachers, and helps a lot with building individual lesson plans, but I struggled sometimes to string together long-term learning outcomes and lessons. Training teachers on how to plan their courses long-term rather than simply class-by-class can make the job much easier.

The course from Oxford TEFL Barcelona was very rewarding - it helped me as a new teacher develop the skills you need to give a good lesson as you get lots of teaching practice time and the feedback you receive from experienced teachers is incredibly useful. This is an intensive course so there is a lot of work to do in the four weeks but if you plan it well you can still enjoy the city of Barcelona as you do the course - or stay here after to work as a teacher, as many do! The careers service from the school is lifelong so there is always help available when looking for positions in the city and overseas, which is another reason to use Oxford TEFL for teacher training because the value for money here is great. My time on the course was really enjoyable and the support available from the tutors was above and beyond what I was expecting, they're really helpful and deliver interesting and useful input sessions too.

My experience with the TEFL Course at Oxford House Barcelona has been one filled with various feelings, mostly positive if not at certain times stressful. The course is challenging and demanding. Overall i was positively shocked with the amount of information and training one gets during the relatively short period of the course. The training practice were eye opening and of course the feedback was the cherry on top. Not to mention the input sessions, these are well designed lessons about various essential topics in addition to several projects that tend to involve you more in the learning process, learning to teach that is!

Really enjoyed the course and felt like I got a lot out of it.

Lots of teaching practice, variety and different assignments to show you how to be a teacher. We even did some lessons Romanian in the first week to see how to effectively teach a language from the beginning - as well as having a lot of fun!

It was a very intense month, especially when teaching real students on the the third day of the course but this proved to be the best way to learn - by doing!

Would recommend doing the course to anyone interested in teaching.

I had an incredibly enjoyable and invaluable experience doing my Trinity endorsed TESOL course at Oxford House in Barcelona. The course subjects, the facilities and the materials we were provided was of an outstanding level on all fronts. More so, the staff were incredibly experienced, passionate and helpful and they were always available to assist or support in anyway needed, whether it be during the allocated lesson planning & feedback sessions themselves, or whenever else you needed their assistance after hours. It was a challenging month and the work load is not to be disregarded, but it was incredibly rewarding and although I only finished the course less than a week ago, I do truly believe that it will put me in good stead for finding a job in the near future with the support of their exceptional career services and ongoing networking opportunities. I would highly recommend attending this school for anyone looking to do their TESOL course in the exquisite city of Barcelona.
