A great course

The TEFL course was a great choice for me. It was enjoyable and well-structured. Easy to go though. I really enjoyed the end-of-chapter tests, I found them to be very helpful in consolidating what was learned. And all the videos helped break the monotony of the course.
I am now certified to teach and I am so glad I did the course. The only thing I have a complaint for is the price for extending the course in case one doesn't finish on time. Other than that, I have been very happy and I would recommend the course to anyone.

I made the right decision! Read to know why

Signing up for a programme sounds quite easy but when it comes to choosing the right academy for yourself which works covering all your aspects perfectly that too online is definitely a job. I was recommended The TEFL Academy by a fellow ESL Teacher and trust me it was the right choice. Unlike other academies which provide the courses of same niche.
The TEFL Academy got good on these points:
1) the course content is greatly made and simplified.
2) there were quiz at the end of all units and you definitely know how helpful they work with learning.
3) assignments were in between of units which was quite good because it helped with improving your learning process and tutors corrected with encouragement.
4) one of the best factors were the assignments were quite well explained on how to perform them on the website and live tutor sessions were available on youtube as well. So no need spend time understanding how to actually do this or that.
5) the student support, now be it tutor support, admin support or queries they were all answered at the top most property unlike I have seen in other online learning platforms where they take ages.
6) here comes the best part, when you are all done and have completed the course, The TEFL Academy helps you with cv to helping you find the right job for you.
Overall I had my best experience and as an alumni I will definitely RECOMMEND!
The TEFL Academy for future aspirants.

  • Content was quite easy to understand and useful as well
  • Student support was available at top most priority
  • Post completion support with CV making to getting you chose the right path for you is available
  • Lack on updates on a few platforms
  • As a non native speaker there are less opportunities than a native speaker
  • None

You can check your progress and use a lot of great sources of information which are included in this course. They will be essential for you if you want to develop yourself as a teacher after completing the course. There are a lot of interesting tests. Even if you pass it well you can always check yourself again. You have some attempts. This Academy has a big choice of different courses.

Excellent course, very impressed

I am so pleased that I found the TEFL Academy. I did a lot of research and this course and company stood out. From start to finish the course was professional, detailed and thoroughly enjoyable. It was challenging and I learnt so much about all aspects of teaching, as well as TEFL. The course material is easy to access online, and the Assignments really get you to think about what you have learnt. The opportunities via the jobs board are excellent. Thank you so much for making this course so enjoyable.

  • I was not properly enrolled in the course once resuming after a break
  • Marking time not excluded from the time given to complete course
  • Would of liked a ‘work experience’ week to apply theory practically.

With regards to my experience with The Tefl academy, they showed so much support and made the course very easy to use. The videos added throughout the course are very helpful and help you understandthe material as well as what you need to do . I would recommend The Tefl Academy to all English teachers who are looking to travel and teach abroad. My TTA course went very smoothly and when I did get stuck on an assignment, I just emailed the support line and they replied with more assistance that same day.

  • Easy to use
  • Supportive throughout
  • Gives all information needed
  • Time limit on finishing the course

Brilliant experience

I had a great experience. It’s extremely flexible so if you need more time you can purchase extensions. When I submitted my assessments the turn around time was less than a week to hear back about each assessment so very quick. Support was good when I needed it I managed to get in touch with advisers. It is challenging and takes a good amount of work to pass it which just shows how good the qualification is. I would recommend this to a friend. It is expensive compared to other providers but in my opinion you get what you pay for. It is worth it.

  • Good support
  • Good material
  • Extensions available
  • Expensive but you get what you pay for
  • Assessments were more work than I expected

The best teaching course

It was very easy for me to pass. The Tefl Academy was very helpful in helping me in marking my assignments marked on time and giving me great feedback. In return for all this work ive been helped on to pass i get to travel now anywhere i want AND I GET PAID! With accomodation and meet great people all over the world and i am so excited. Tefl helps you with visa, accomodation, getting the job as a teacher with or without a degree. TEFL give you a career to travel with even without a degree. Great
