I completed my online TEFL with Premier, and it was a wonderful experience. The staff is sweet and almost always available to chat with your questions. This was incredibly helpful, as before making your big TEFL move you are bound to have a bunch of them. I even stopped by their office in Ireland on my way East, and they gave me a warm welcome. The course itself is structured in an easy to understand manner, and complete with videos/quizzes to help reinforce the material. It doesn't take too long if you dedicate a couple of hours per day into it, and I saved all the material to have as a reference point. I have worked as an ESL teacher now both in person and remotely all over the world thanks to Premier, and their course was definitely the key to unlocking an entirely new lifestyle. Take the plunge and go for it!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Understand that in the beginning, you are going to make mistakes and that this is not just normal, and part of the process. Be resilient and it'll all work out if you put in enough effort

I had an amazing time doing my teaching internship in Thailand! By going through Premier TEFL I had everything taken care of for me which meant very little stress going into a huge transition, which was awesome! They have also been super awesome throughout the whole semester by checking in and sharing photos and everything in between. They really care for those who have gone through their company! I get messages about checking in to make sure things are running smoothly, to see if I need anything, asking about my weekend trips and comments about my photos. They do so much to make me feel taken care of and noticed as one of the many people they work with. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to teaching English abroad! I have had nothing but good experiences working with them!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Just have fun! Things here in Thailand are always changing and information seems to always change. Don’t let it bring you down, just enjoy!

Where do I start?!?😃 After much research and debating with myself about the 'what ifs' and 'buts' and 'maybes' my journey with Premier Tefl began after finding a suitable short term teaching experience abroad in Thailand. Premier Tefl have a fantastic website with job opportunities all around the world. The website is very easy to navigate but what I particularly love about Premier Tefl is the staff who work there. I have bombarded Premier Tefl with emails and every time they have responded so promptly. They have even gone as far as calling me while in Asia when I expressed my interest in another teaching position in Asia.

Premier Tefl have been with me every step of the way in this life changing, fun-filled journey. It's not easy to pack your life up and move away from home but for me Premier Tefl contributed to making this as stress free as possible. Premier Tefl will be sure to offer you all the reassurance that you may need.

Premier Tefl offer very easy to do Tefl courses to send you on your way to another country. The tefl course was very easy to complete. It was very manageable to do especially while continuing to work full time. It's all online.

After you complete the Tefl course, Premier Tefl set up an interview for you and help you to secure a position. This whole process was made very simple thanks to Premier Tefl.

Another major plus with Premier Tefl is they met all of us in Thailand during our three day orientation course before we began working. They were even there in Thailand to offer their assistance and best of all take us out into Bangkok and pay for our dinner.

A year and a half later after packing up my life and moving to Thailand, I am sitting here in Asia writing this review. You never know this could be you. If you are even considering moving abroad to teach English, my advice would be to simply ring or email Premier Tefl and just express your interest.
Waking up to sunshine everyday has changed my life. I've made the best of friends, immersed myself in a new culture and even learned a small amount of a new language. Premier Tefl have opened up a whole new world of opportunities for me that I never imagined possible before.

The TEFL Chinese internship has been one of the most rewarding and fun challenges I have ever taken on. Adapting to a new culture and way of life has been a huge eye opener and experience I will never forget. The generosity of the Chinese people has been overwhelming and I will cherish the moemories made with all of my new friends and students who have made my experience
that little more special! I would definitely recommend this programme to anyone who is up for a challenge and ready for an experience to enhance their life. Being away from home is hard but if you make the most of every opportunity while you’re away you are reminded of the positive reasons of why you have endured such an incredible challenge. Throw yourself into everything, try foods you’d never try at home and dare to be different. Experience is everything and the greatest stories in life come from making choices. Choose to teach in China, it will not disappoint!

I’ve just completed the Premier TEFL 20 Hour Teaching Business English course as a follow-up certificate to their 120 Hour Advanced TEFL Certification Course. This is the RIGHT combination for anyone interested in teaching Adults. Since adults either work for a business, own their own business or have a profession, which has a business side to it, adults really want to learn business concepts, terms and ideas in English to help their career. For English teachers with a business background, this course is a great overview which puts Teaching Business English in a context you will quickly understand. For the English Teacher with no or little business background, it lays the foundation for business terms and concepts you need to have to present yourself as a creditable teacher of Business English. It also offers a wide range of resources to help the non-business English teacher broaden and deepen their understanding of business needed to effectively teach Business English to Adult Learners. Premier TEFL does an admirable job of educating people to teach English to non-English speakers. I strongly recommend that you consider Premier TEFL as your First Choice for TEFL Education! Check out Premier’s new video, Your TEFL Course Dashboard Tour, on YouTube when it gets posted. It’s a thorough overview of Premier TEFL programs, content and testing required to earn any of the certificates Premier TEFL is authorized to offer. If this video doesn’t convince you that Premier TEFL is your best choice for education in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and certification, I doubt nothing will.

Having just competed the 120 Hour Advanced Premier TEFL Course, I am really pleased with the course, the education it provided and the results of taking it. The staff at Premier TEFL was always helpful in explaining their program, answering my questions on how the proceed and always encouraging to successfully finish the course of study. The program is completely online and contains 10 modules. The modules cover a range of topics from the history of the development of the English language, strategies and tactics for teaching English, a review of grammar, classroom management, issues with teaching different types of students, and teaching pronunciation, reading, writing and listening skills. It also offers suggestions and resources for finding English teaching jobs in foreign countries. The course is logically laid out and easily to follow as one module lays the groundwork for the next. It is challenging, especially the module on grammar. The Premier TEFL program is academically solid, accredited and internationally recognized. It IS a reputable program and one I would highly recommend to anyone, from the first-time English teacher wanting to learn how to teach English in a foreign country to the seasoned professional seeking certification to teach English as a Foreign Language. It was a great experience and I encourage you to see what Premier TEFL has to offer. If not, you could make a bad choice.

What would you improve about this program?
Provide written instructions for taking the quiz at the end of each module. Otherwise, it is a solid academic course.

The course was a relatively easy one. The quizzes were only 10 questions long and pretty easy. You can take the quizzes multiple times. It was also convenient as you could download your current course making it available everywhere, including on the go. The organization and format was great. The text was easy to follow and activities helped make sure you understood the important points. The text could seem a little too simple and redundant at times

What would you improve about this program?
The activities were to easy to cheat on. It would be nice if you had to click on a button to show answers rather than have them directly below the questions

I recommend this course to anyone with the slightest interest in teaching. The course is available in many different places and a google search can be a little overwhelming. But with some research, I found Premier TEFL. The course is easy to understand and well organized. The quizzes are only 10 questions. Best part, you can download the chapter if you have poor internet connection so your never unable to study. Premier TEFL is affordable, plus they had a myriad of opportunities to pursue. It is a one stop place to start you career abroad.

What would you improve about this program?
Everything is sectioned well and easy to understand. It would be nice if the activated were interactive or the answers weren't visible right below the questions.

I've been wanting to teach overseas for the last year and I finally booked my course when I was a postgraduate student at Kingston University in Southwest, London. I am learning a lot about teaching and the tools that are necessary to use in the classroom. The course has been easy to navigate through and I can go at my own pace. After I complete my certification I'm hoping to start teaching in a few different countries.

What would you improve about this program?
I think the course has a balance between the videos and the coursework.
