I could not be happier with my decision to do my TEFL certification in Prague with Hello Academies. I looked into many opportunities in order to get certified and I am so fortunate that I stumbled upon Hello Academies. The course is intensive and a great learning experience, you will come out knowing a lot about the english language that you may have forgotten or never knew in the first place. You will spend your days in the class room with the TEFL director Martha and let me tell you this woman is amazing! Martha is full of energy and very entertaining which is important because there is A LOT of material to cover in 28 days. The course can be challenging but Martha is there to guide you each step of the way. Martha does a great job of making you feel comfortable and helping you to become a confident teacher. She is incredibly knowledgable when it comes to the english language and her teaching methods are very effective.
During the month in Prague you will become very close with your fellow students, Martha and Becca. Becca is very helpful when it comes to anything and everything you may need during your stay in Prague. She helps with housing, transportation , events around the city and helping students to find apartments and jobs after the program. Becca is very approachable and a welcoming which is important when moving to a new city. One day during class I was not feeling too well ( the run to the bathroom and head in the toilet kind of sick). Becca was so helpful and accompanied me on the tram home and brought me ginger ale to help me feel better. Becca does a great job of connecting students with the alumni and coordinating events in Prague. This really enhanced my experience and helped with making friends in the city!
Overall, doing your TEFL in Prague with Hello Academies is a great choice and you will fall in love with Prague!
