I have recently decided to teach English in Buenos Aires, Argentina, through the TEFL Heaven program, and I cannot recommend it enough. It was overall a great experience which was rewarding and enriching at the same time. The people were incredibly friendly, and it was a great start to the journey, as it was very much social hub, alongside the productive work that was done. The course material was interesting, as we delved into topics such as teaching theories, methods and classroom etiquette before starting our teaching practice lessons. The week of teaching practice was where I developed my preferred teaching style; I felt confident and secure at every step of the way, due to the guidance and constructive criticism given by the instructors. Once the course finished, we were given a lot of aid with crafting CVs, applying for teaching jobs and going for interviews. I do not regret spending time to train for my TEFL qualification in Buenos Aires, as it made job hunting easier. The post-program process was very smooth and positive; despite having a busy teaching schedule, there was still time to explore the city, uncover its culture and socialise with newfound friends. All in all, it was a fabulous experience and I cannot recommend it enough!
How can this program be improved?
The program was very satisfactory and matched my expectations perfectly. However, if I had to change one aspect, I would have requested to have more lessons on teaching specific and intricate grammatical rules to non-native English speakers.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
