Great experience

This is an amazing experience to have. To learn about the culture within Bali as well as learn how to teach others. You get to meet new people and become friends, and you learn how to get out of your comfort zone as well as learn new boundaries.
This course teaches a new skill and you dont have to use this skill in only teaching you can use it in other life experiences.😋
Work hard, stay humble, stay focused, dream big, think positive, don't complain, be kind, be happy and always hustle.🪷🌻 thanks DT

Pros
  • You learn a new skill
  • Get out of your comfort zone by pushing a few boundaries

Dont miss out

So I have recently just finished this course and could bot be happier. I already had a level 5 TEFL but doing something online and having the actual practical experience in a classroom is completely different.
It is more like joining a new family than doing a course. All the staff are exceptional and very supportive.
It is hard work dont get me wrong, but everything they do has purpose to prepare you for the realities of being a teacher.
I've now finished feeling like I could confidently teach anywhere.

Pros
  • Amazing supportive staff
  • Teaching real students in a school
  • Tools to help you become a great teacher
Cons
  • A lot of assignments

Destination TEFL - Bali

The course was wonderful and the instructor (Georgie) is very experienced. The course was also a challenge as it includes theory, practical teaching techniques and teaching practice. I strongly recommend this course if you wish to complete a TESL course with a strong practical component. Bali is a wonderful destination to complete the course as the people are very welcoming. The course is also a great place to meet fellow teachers from all around the world (and they will become your friends :) It’s worth doing a bit of research on grammar rules before you start the course, just so you can revise some of the key concepts before the TEFL course starts.

Pros
  • Great course
  • Well designed
  • Practical
Cons
  • None

DTEFL- Bali - Oct 22

I was really happy to have the experience of doing a TEFL program abroad. The course was in a very nice part of Bali, calm, cultured, and not overly touristy. It is close enough to the major tourist spots that you can go on the weekend still. The course instructor Georgie was extremely personable and a great teacher. She really knows how to teach and breaks down the different aspects of teaching. There was a great sense of camaraderie among the class and it allowed me to make friends that will last. I will say, it is pretty UK heavy. Being from the US, I was the "different" one.

Pros
  • Amazing teacher
  • Student friendships
  • Beautiful location
Cons
  • Accustomed to UK teaching style and vocabulary

Great course fantastic teachers.

I had so much fun doing this course. I had great support from my teacher and had support and feedback every step of the way.

Living and working in Bali was an amazing experience and I cannot recommend this enough. Bali is a beautiful country and has soooooo much to offer!!!!!

I had a great set of peers whom I have made a great bond with, which made the intensity of the course a lot easier.

You get to spend one Friday of the course doing cultural activities which allowed the team to bond.

Pros
  • Great challange
  • Good career opportunities
Cons
  • Intensive, would not be suitable if you wanted to do it as a side hobby whilst travelling.

Fast Track Option

After completing my level 5 TEFL diploma at an online academy i felt like i was still lacking in a lot of ways. I could not have been more excited when i found Destination TEFL!
They have the best fast track option that adds you to the program for the last 2 weeks to learn all about and take part in classroom practicals. Without Destination TEFL i would not have been ready to start my teaching career.
The tutors, Tina and Chy, are amazing! They are always ready to help you no matter what the question and give such good feedback for you to learn from and to grow.
Thank you Destination TEFL

Excellence

Course content and delivery were excellent in preparing me to step into the mad world of English language teaching abroad. The course tutor Georgie was fantastic from day 1, making the whole class feel welcome but also pushing us each day to strive for greatness. The tutoring was great and I have greatly benefitted from the content teachings and the practical element of the course was great for preparing you to step into a real classroom for the first time. I'm very grateful to all involved in the process and would highly recommend to anyone looking to start a new venture in TEFL to study this course in Bali.

Pros
  • Great course content
  • Excellent tutoring and support
  • Perfect practical experience and practise
Cons
  • Accomodation situation could be improved

Destination TEFL Siem Reap

After an exhaustive online search, I stumbled upon Destination TEFL Siem Reap and knew that I had found the TEFL programme that was perfect for me.
From the beginning they gave detailed and honest answers to my many questions which immediately made me feel at ease.
As soon as we had our virtual meeting/Q&A session I was ready to pack my bags and head to Cambodia for the adventure of a lifetime.
The course can be demanding as it packs a lot into four weeks but if you apply yourself, keep on top of your assignments and are well prepared for your teaching practicals, you will succeed.
Along with the hard work you will definitely have time for fun and adventure as you discover more about yourself and the new country you will soon call home.
The Destination TEFL staff and trainers are extremely knowledgeable, helpful and patient. They will guide and encourage you to do your best. The bonds that you form and experiences you share with your fellow trainees will provide you with memories to last a lifetime.

DT Bali 2022

I had a great experience with Destination TEFL! The course was challenging but very rewarding. The course curriculum is thorough and there’s a lot to pack into the four weeks. The workload can be quite intense at times, especially if you’re new to teaching like myself, but the Destination TEFL staff were supportive throughout. I really enjoyed the teaching practicums at a local Balinese school which gave me a real taste of what teaching will be like. Our trainer, Georgie, was a great teacher and we all got on really well as a group.

The course takes place in Sanur which has a nice chilled vibe and beautiful beaches. I was pleased to be somewhere with a relaxed environment and away from some of the temptations of the busier backpacker hotspots. Having said that, popular spots like canggu or Ubud are only a short taxi ride away if you want to explore the rest of Bali during the course.

Overall, I had a great experience with Destination TEFL and made some great friends along the way. I now feel ready to start my teaching career. Highly recommended!
