Amazing experience with Tefl Institute!

My experience with the TEFL Institute was absolutely fantastic! From start to finish, the course exceeded all my expectations.

The layout of the course was incredibly well-organized and easy to follow. Each module provided clear instructions and engaging content that made the learning process enjoyable :)

I also want to give a special shoutout to Rachel, who was always prompt in responding to my emails and providing support whenever I needed it.

Overall, I highly recommend the TEFL Institute to anyone considering pursuing a TEFL certification. Their commitment to quality education and exceptional support truly sets them apart. Thank you for a wonderful learning experience!

TEFL level 5 Diploma

I had a great experience studying with tefl. I had a lot of help from tutors and support from Rachel Walsh. I would recommend this for people in their 20s, especially those who would like to live abroad and work as a teacher. The course can be easily accessed while travelling. I was able to study at my own pace and on my own time during my travels. The course provides both text and audio so you can chose whether you want to listen to the content or read the content. A lot of teaching jobs abroad require a tefl diploma so this will open so many job opportunities for me in the future and allow me to continue living and working abroad for longer.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
It’s a great way to find job opportunities abroad.
Pros
  • It gives you all the skills you need to teach efficiently
  • It lets you work at your own pace on your own schedule
  • The tutors are very helpful
Cons
  • A lot of extra help available or extensions come with extra fees
  • There are extra fees for obtaining a reference letters

The TEFL Institue 180hr Online course.

This course was straightforward and I appreciated the ease of accessibility. I haven't completed any similar courses to compare it to although based on my impressions of other courses through peers who have completed them, this course was well administered. I had a very easy time reaching out to the staff for support. All of my queries were quickly and satisfactorily addressed. There were a couple of things I didn't like about the course assessment but on the whole I'm very satisfied with what I've learnt and especially the excellent service I received.

What would you improve about this program?
I had a positive experience with most parts of the program and would not change much but there were a couple of sore points which stood out. The quantity of content for each module and lesson varies, that is alright, but the navigation system could indicate this better. For example some lessons have sub-slides within slides. If the slides and subslides could be integrated into subsections of the 'lessons' tab, it would be easier to navigate to a specified point and to gauge how much content is in each lesson. Additionally it would be a simple and great improvement to be able to speed up the automated voiceover.

A greater criticism which frustrated me quite a bit occured during the assessment. The questions on their own lack proper elucidation and the 'question amplification' seems to be an attempt to make up for this. I understand the premise of the amplification but the problem is that the questions on their own are not sufficient without the amplification. Theoretically one should be able to fully comprehend the scope of a question without reading the amplification but I'm not convinced thats the case. The amplifications had so much more detail than the original questions that it made the original questions look like a comparitively unreliable source to be disregarded altogether. This would not be such a problem if there was not so much dissonance between the original questions and their respective amplifications. The amplifications were often verbose, undoing the original scaffolding and causing overlap. I didn't have a hard time answering the questions so perhaps my criticism seems an overexageration but nonetheless I think its fairly obvious the amplifications have been appended to the original questions and subsequently edited. They really ought to be rewritten more succintly and harmoniously.
Pros
  • Clear structure
  • Succint content
  • Reliable web application
Cons
  • Unclear pacing
  • Verbose question amplifications

No Excuses!

I recently completed the 300 Hour Regulated Level 5 Advanced TEFL Diploma through the TEFL Institute, and I couldn't be more pleased with the experience. From start to finish, the program was incredibly comprehensive and well-structured, providing me with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in teaching English as a foreign language.

The course itself was thorough and engaging, covering a wide range of topics essential for effective teaching. From lesson planning to classroom management, I gained valuable insights that I've already begun applying in my teaching practice.

Overall, I highly recommend the TEFL Institute and their 300 Hour Regulated Level 5 Advanced TEFL Diploma to anyone looking to pursue a career in teaching English abroad. With their comprehensive curriculum and exceptional support team, you'll be well-equipped to make a positive impact in the lives of your students.

What would you improve about this program?
While I was completing the TEFL Institute's 300 Hour Regulated Level 5 Advanced TEFL Diploma, I found the assessments to be quite lengthy. To enhance my learning experience, I would suggest breaking up the questions into smaller chunks to aid in better comprehension and retention. This adjustment would make the assessments feel more manageable.
Pros
  • Comprehensive Training
  • Career Opportunities
  • Professional Development
Cons
  • Time
  • Cost
  • Workload

TEFL.ie 180 Hour Level 5 Diploma

I recently completed the TEFL.ie 180 hour level 5 Diploma with TEFL.ie and I cannot recommend this course and this organisation more! It was very competatively priced and is accredited by Highfield, which ensures that it is recognised and respected throughout the world.

The course layout was really easy to follow, and built on learning and knowledge in a way that wasn't overwhelming. Module goals were clear and modules did not contain too much information. Tutor support was excellent, and my tutor, Rachel Hammond, was fantastic. She answered all my questions quickly and was very helpful at every stage of the course. Weekly tutorial are also provided as part of the course. There are un-assessed quizzes after each section to help you make sure you understand the contents. And assignments (three in total) were corrected and returned very quickly. The course contained lots of tips, links and information about online resources and useful websites, as well as further reading. The 10 hour online teaching course (also provided as part of the course) was very interesting and gave me lots of confidence and tips about teaching online. Again, the tutor, Michelle Benson, was excellent. I really enjoyed doing this course and feel very confident in my ability to teach English as a foreign language as a result.

Pros
  • Easy to follow and well laid out information and modules
  • Excellent tutor support
  • Resources, materials and tips shared
