Great confidence booster

I came in with a Bachelor's degree, so I knew I didn't need the certification to get a job teaching in Japan. What I wanted from TEFL Tokyo was the confidence to walk into a new classroom and start teaching. That is exactly what I got.

TEFL International Tokyo gave me a TESOL certificate, but more importantly, they gave me the tools and practice and confidence I need to be an effective teacher.

Valuable teaching opportunities.

This was a great course with a sufficient amount of time and attention paid to both the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching English as a second language.
Larry and Dave conducted the classes with a friendly enthusiasm and had a way of making every task interesting and informative. Additionally, classes were well organised and provided plenty of opportunities for students to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of the given topics.
TEFL International was a great way for me to start my time in Tokyo and was an invaluable experience which I believe will definitely help me in any future language teaching career.

I learned a lot!

I truly learned a lot in this course! It is a great mix of textbook information, practical real life teaching, great teacher role models, and lots of valuable skills and inputs. The teachers are really fun and friendly and knowledgable. It's a good atmosphere to learn in. The real world teaching opportunities are helpful and great practice. This is a course I can be proud to say I have taken, and it should carry a lot of weight with employers. Speaking of, they gave me a great reference, and I was able to get a job offer shortly after the course finished, using what I had learned in the class during my interview. Thanks Larry and Coach Dave!!

How can this program be improved?
I think they could retype and crisp up the handout materials. They have good content, but the ink was dull. Such a small thing. But hey there's gotta be something to improve.

Well worth the time, effort, and money.

I have had many great teachers throughout my education, and both Larry and Dave rank right up there, too. Both have decades of experience living and teaching in Japan, so they are filled to the brim with useful knowledge that useful not just for teaching in Japan, but also living there. To top it all off, they both happen to be really great, personable, and humorous guys.

I also want to give a word of warning; don't expect a walk in the park. Within these four weeks you will learn more about grammar than you ever knew existed and the workload, while not backbreaking, will definitely consume a fair amount of time.

How can this program be improved?
My only real complaint is that the classroom can feel a little cramped.

That is what I experienced whilst attending TEFL International, Tokyo. I was not just told about what to learn but I experienced it in my life from my dedicated sensei's. I am leaving 100% equipped.
