Don't wait, enrol now!

I would 100% recommend the level 5 TEFL course with The TEFL Academy. It was easy to follow along with and challenging in a way that I know will support my future teaching. The assignments were clearly laid out and feedback was always helpful and prompt. If you are thinking about doing this course, I would say go for it! It might change your life... I'm about to move to Vietnam to start teaching English! I can't wait to see what other opportunities I will be able to take advantage of with my TEFL certificate.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I'd make a more structured & realistic study plan

Incredible Programme for Individuals Teaching from Home

Phenomenal experience and amazing materials which helped me learn about lesson planning, different grammatical forms and built my confidence in teaching english a a foreign language. The assessments helped to test my knowledge and the assignments allowed me to practice finding resources, planning a lesson in different skill areas (e.g. speaking, reading) and with actual feedback on what could be improved so that I wasn't going into the working world without any knowledge on how to craft lesson plans and find authentic materials.

What would you improve about this program?
I think the only thing is that assignments are harder than the smaller assessments and they don't really prepare you for the big 3 assignments.

Great course in so many ways

Having not studied for 20 years I was a bit apprehensive but the TEFL Academy was great!
The course material was straight forward but challenging. Great extra resources are provided for those who want to go deeper into a topic.
Loved the structure of the course and the online presentation.
They were also always quick to respond the few times I need to contact them.
Highly recommend this course. It's also great value for money considering you are getting a level 5 qualification compared to what other companies out there are offering.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Having to deal with grammar which isn't my strong point!

The Best

Excellent platform and accessible and thorough. Highly recommend this course which is presented in a topical, multifaceted and interactive way. Additional resources are offered and the support is second to none. The tests and assignments are well thought out and cover all areas. It is apparent that a great deal of thought has been taken in devising and delivering the material and the presentation and format is outstanding. I researched every platform but this course stood out in all aspects an I would highly recommend it.

What was your funniest moment?

TEFL Online Training

The TEFL Academy course is professional, thorough, supportive and very accessible. The material was current and easy to negotiate in an online format, and the support was positive, constructive and timeous. I found the presentation interesting, well laid out, understandable, and broken up into digestible chunks. The units were sequenced well, and the flow of the course is good. I would recommend it to anybody wanting to receive reliable and reputable training in their quest towards a vocation in teaching English to foreign students.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would spend more time engaging with the additional material offered in the course. I look forward to building on the knowledge I have already gained when I have more time.

Fun!

This course was a lot of fun, and although I haven’t been able to complete the workshop (thanks to Covid-19!!) I still had a good time completing the assignments and learning new skills.
There is a good range of difficulty but obviously a lot of it depends on how much people know already in terms of grammar and word forms etc. Learning how to teach students is very informative and helpful and brings up things that you wouldn’t necessarily think about before.
Although I didn’t need to, contacting for any help/issues seems very straightforward.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would try and complete it faster! I left my last assignment quite late so wasn’t sure if I’d be done on time, but thankfully I was!
