I would recommend this TEFL Course in Buenos Aires to anyone who wants to teach in a language school in Argentina, online, abroad or in the US! Entirely positive experience. All the TEFL Trainers here were extremely helpful and cared about our learning. They would help you where needed and made sure you were not alone in this process. As previous students have said, the course is highly challenging and will consume you for four weeks. They aren’t joking when they say you can’t do anything else–it takes out lots of your productive energy. The class is mentally and physically exhausting but absolutely top-notch quality. The Spanish classes offered are invaluable. Great tutors, quick responses on emails and very patient end encouraging! Thank you all again!

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!

Buenos Aires TEFL was an excellent learning experience with fantastic teaching, with detailed and thorough course content as well as excellent job placement opportunities. The teachers were lovely and always kind to help with any questions we may have had. My wife was also doing the course and she has no teaching experience and felt equally as well supported and informed. All learning resources available were absolutely useful. The feedback from the teaching practice sessions was detailed and constructive. We had the opportunity to teach a different range of language levels. The Spanish classes are invaluable as well. Thanks so much team for the wonderful opportunity and hopefully we’ll meet again in the future.

What would you improve about this program?
I do not know about improving but actually adding up more learning materials to cover oline from home before arriving in bueno airis

My background isn’t in teaching, so I was hoping that having this certification would open up more doors for me to teach and travel overseas. The people at Buenos Aires TEFL have been in touch since to help me with job search and it seems like I might be able to secure a position for next school year! I was also very impressed with the program because I first thought of becoming TEFL certified online and Teach English online but I finally took the in person class which has been wonderful so far. The professors here are awesome and get out of their way to answer any queries you may have. Simply wonderful.
All in all, great course! Would highly recommend.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
try to become familiar with the Argentinian culture and learn some Spanish before arrival, it is always useful to know at least some

There are a lot of cheaper alternatives to Buenos Aires TEFL but this is accredited worldwide, so it’s worth every penny.The course materials were easy to follow but still very in-depth. The content pretty much covers all the fundamentals and opens the door to understanding teacher-student interactions, creating lesson plans, and how to implement them into the classroom.I learned things that I don’t remember having studied back when I was in school. The Spanish classes were very helpful.The course was challenging, and I have to mention highly professional support team, which responded in very short notice on any of my questions or demands, Thanks for being professional and very helpful.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
all of the vegan food that you can think of is excellent here in buenos airis, no doubt
