I really enjoyed the course. I found it to be very helpful and hands-on. The instructors are really professional but also approachable and it felt like they genuinely want me to succeed. There was plenty of teaching practice as well as class lectures. I was able to learn different teaching and learning styles, as well as how to teach different types of lessons with specific focuses. They also provide you with practical advise on job searching and applying. It’s definitely an intensive program, but well worth it.

I had a really good time during this course. It was very informative, practical and all the teachers were so helpful. The teachers are still in contact with me and have helped out a lot with job opportunities. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to change careers or try something new. The other great thing about this course is that you teach with real students and get to see what it is really like. I can't recommend this enough! Thanks Martin and the team at TEFL Worldwide Prague!

I accidentally closed the online room and kicked all the students out just 10minutes into my lesson!

This is course was amazing and super helpful!!

Over the 4 week period I learnt so much, it is a lot of work but the amount of support that is available is comprised of a group of extremely skilled and understanding trainers.

Doing the course entirely online had its difficulties but they did everything they could to ensure that the course ran as smoothly as possible.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to become an English teacher or just to improve upon the skills they already have.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
That would have to be teaching my first lesson. I was so nervous and the lesson had a few moments where it went wrong but there was no need to be nervous the students were kind and considerate

Taking my TEFL course in TEFL Worldwide Prague has been by far the best decision of my life.

The trainers, the lessons, and the teaching practices give you all the tools you need to run a great lesson, where both students and teachers enjoy the process of learning. The intensive learning begins on the first day and in the teaching practices, you can put some of the theory and techniques into a real practical context. When they say it is an intense course, they are not lying. You really need to work hard every day before, during, and after the lessons. But trust me when I say that those 4 weeks are more than worth it. During that time you will be able to learn how to plan lessons effectively, you will have the opportunity to feel like a student who is starting a new language thanks to the unknown language module, you will be working on how the English language works and you will be guided through the different methodologies and skills by incredible trainers.

For me, coming to Prague and choosing this school was the best investment I have ever made. Once I had finished my course, I started working right away in this wonderful city, like most of my TEFL colleagues. So, if you want to change your life by becoming an English teacher, be trained by excellent professionals from various backgrounds, and have total guidance before, during, and after the course, TEFL Worldwide is your place. Don’t think twice. You will not regret it.

I graduated from TEFL Worldwide Prague back in 2015, but it is still the best class I’ve ever taken. The course is fun, informative, and worth every penny and more! When I later taught in Taiwan and Japan, I was more than prepared for my classes. I met a lot of ESL teachers that hadn’t taken a TEFL course and not only did they get paid less, they were also unprepared to teach effectively. I 100% believe that this program will give you all the tools you need to have a fun and rewarding TEFL career!

Don't just get your certificate online. Don't do the cheap and lazy thing. All that will do is allow you to work in a field without actually preparing you for it. Instead, go to a foreign country where you don't speak the language and try to put yourself in the shoes of your students. Get direct experience of what it's like to sit in an English class. You can't just learn pedagogical theory and become a teacher. You have to feel what it's like inside the classroom. And TEFL Worldwide offers all of those things.

This is a great program, and one that I was sad to finish. It's comfortable, but challenging. The classwork becomes your life. Your classmates become your friends. You're not just paying for a certificate. You're paying for a comprehensive experience full of networking opportunities that continue to help you after you complete the course.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Writing a lesson plan. The only way to overcome it is to do it.

TEFL Worldwide Prague were excellent training providers. The admin staff are extremely helpful and the teacher trainers have so much experience which helps you become an excellent teacher. During the course and even today with references and job hunting they always help you whether that is in Prague or around the world.

The course consisted of language awareness, teaching technique, observed lessons and theories of learning when it comes to foreign languages. It has opened so many doors for me - working in Prague for 6 months and now China for 2 years. Best decision I made. I have lifelong friends and experiences thanks to doing this course.

On the course you teach adults which is a great way to start and ease your way into teaching. The professionalism and guidance received is exemplary. And it prepares you extremely well if you want to pursue a career in teaching EFL or want to do it short-term. Also, Prague is a fabulous and beautiful place to learn and enjoy while doing the course.

I would definitely recommend it. It was difficult but extremely worthwhile. It has put me in good stead for realising my aspirations in both work and leisure. It was a very positive experience for me.

What would you improve about this program?
I felt that so much was covered in just 4 weeks. It is an extremely dense course that requires huge effort, energy and commitment in that time. Although worthwhile completely, it was exhausting for me.

I have no suggestions for improvement. If you want to take this course, just make sure you are ready and hungry for it. Because there are so many opportunities and a potentially extremely enjoyable life can await you upon completion.

Kenny, the Course Director, is amazing and always helpful. The course is well structured and if you pay attention in the class and make notes, you will learn so much and write a lot!
Course gives you a lot of resources, including the extra resources from Young Learners Course, everyone is super helpful and will always try to find an answer for you.
When they give you advice, it is best to follow it, because the 4 weeks course is packed with things to do and teaching experience, so you’ll spend a lot of time working on your plans.
While you will have some free time, it is definitely not a vacation, so if you plan to take this course, be prepared that it will take up a lot of your time in Prague.
But it was worth it and I’d do it again! No regrets.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don’t leave things to the last moment and be pro-active. It saves you from stress and you’ll get to sleep more 😆

I completed the TEFL course in August 2019 and had an excellent experience throughout the entirety of the course. Prior to the course, Chelisa and Cheryl were in frequent contact with me to provide all the information I needed about the course and to answer any questions I had. Since my course was a bigger group, we were taught by two different trainers, Kenny and Jazmin. They were both excellent instructors. Input sessions covered a variety of subjects related to teaching English, and all of the sessions were very well prepared and informative. Even though trainees are thrown into teaching from the very first week of the course, I felt prepared to teach my first lesson. The course is very intense, but if you manage your time effectively it’s no problem completing all of the assignments. Feedback on teaching practice was accurate, helpful, and very constructive. Even when being more critical of a trainee, the feedback definitely felt like it was given to help us, not to make us feel bad. There was always a trainer available to help during office hours if we needed assistance with lesson planning or other information related to the course. There was a large focus on grammar, both in increasing our own awareness of it as well as learning how to teach it. Cheryl has been fantastic with providing job guidance and interview preparation, and since the program has such a good reputation in Prague it has been easy to find a job here within a few weeks of graduation. I’m not currently looking to teach children but I took the Young Learner’s Workshop in case I want to in the future, and that was a valuable aspect of the course as well. The office staff were always very kind and helpful. Overall, I had a wonderful experience at TEFL Worldwide and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking to teach English abroad.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
If you have never taught before, the first time standing in front of students and teaching can be a nail-biting experience. However, the trainers have prepared you very well and if you take a deep breath and remember what you've been taught, you'll do lovely.
