Review

After doing some research on TEFL programs, teaching English overseas, and the Czech Republic, I decided to come to Prague to attend OxfordTEFL for the September 2016 course. I pleasantly surprised by the experience and very satisfied.

The Course: They had us teaching the 2nd day of class. Of course I felt very unready, but the tutors were eager to help us select material and get prepared. As the course went on and we continued to teach, they also gave great feedback and were always willing to offer ideas, look at lesson plans and activities, and pretty much bend over backwards to make sure we were ready to teach. This course is intensive, but it wasn't overly stressful or difficult. If you make sure to do just a little each day, you won't be overwhelmed when deadlines come. And the course is certified by Trinity College, which means your certificate is recognized basically anywhere in the world.

The Staff: Every single tutor at OxfordTEFL is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help. They made the classes fun even when they were difficult. I really felt like they wanted me to become a good teacher.

The Apartment: I stayed in the apartment rented by Oxford on Zborovska street with three other students. It was much bigger than I had expected, with very tall ceilings, a private bedroom for each student, and a large kitchen.

The Extras: OxfordTEFL arranges a free ride from the airport into Prague when you get here. They also let you know about a few fun activities in town, and the pub night the first week of class helps you get to know your classmates really well--maybe TOO well in some cases.

If you are thinking about teaching English overseas, I highly recommend OxfordTEFL. I feel prepared to take on a class of non-English speakers.
