Excellent grounding in how to teach TEFL

This was a great course. The fact that it was online really suited me as it meant I could fit my studies around other commitments. I found it tough-going at times, which is a good thing. I really felt a sense of achievement when I was finished. I now have a very thorough understanding of what's required as a TEFL teacher and I know that I have all of the foundations necessary to forge my way through this career.
As an aside, I suffered a bereavement during the course and they were super helpful and kind about this. I was even given an extension to complete the course.

Kemoikantse’s review

My experience was unique because I had help for the most part and enjoyed my time during training the support I got made the course very fun and exciting, being able to do my work at my own flexible time allowed me to focus more and set my goals in order. Being able to focus on specific things and different times made me feel comfortable and relaxed within the training, so much so that I excelled in my training and did very well in all my assignments the slides and materials given to me weee more than helpful

  • There’s so much to learn and you enjoy the work that is given
  • Support from tutors
  • Good course material
  • Work load is a bit much
  • The pass mark for test is a little high
  • Too much information to take in per unit

TEFL Academy level 5 course review

The TEFL Academy is a great institution for acquiring a TEFL certificate to teach English online and even abroad. The institution is widely known and accredited. It offers great support and its content is informative. I would recommend the TEFL Academy to complete the level 5 TEFL course because the academy offers great feedback and guidance throughout the journey even after you have completed the course. The admin and technical staff are really patient when it comes to the learners and they are really helpful until you get your needs met, which is a great characteristic especially in this industry.

  • Great support
  • Excellent content
  • Brilliant website and feed
  • Too much information (which is good!)

Challenging but well worth it

The course materials were detailed and easy to follow. Multiple checks were made as you progressed through to ensure that you understood what you were doing. The assignments were multi-faceted but the instructions and expectations were clear.
I used more than one extension to complete due to unforeseen reasons but the Academy was very helpful and made it easy to apply for extra time. Support was available for the assignments or anything else if needed. A great course, lots of work but very worthwhile. Thanks!

  • Easy-to-follow materials and progressive in nature.
  • Very thorough coverage of language teaching
  • Challenging - things that require effort are more satisfying
  • Need good access to internet
  • Assignments were very detailed and time-consuming (but taught me a lot).
  • I would have liked some more live classroom experience

Level 5 TEFL course

When I decided to do a EFL course, I did a lot of research and found that there were many institutes offering similar EFL courses. I live in South Africa so it was important for me to find a course that is accredited. I eventually stumbled on the TheTEFLAcademy website and was pleased to find that they were internationally recognised and that they offered a huge discount.
The content in this course is really interesting and easy to understand and there were lots of activities and unit testing that assesses what you have learnt. 6 months is more than enough time to get through the course.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course and I'm looking forward to beginning a new career in EFL.

  • Easy to understand
  • Study at your own pace
  • Academic support
  • you lose access to site after 6 months

Excellent Online TEFL Course

The course was easy to follow, kept me motivated and proved good feedback on my assignments. Marking was done quickly and allowed me to progress swifty.
The course was also well built, starting with the basics of reading, writing and grammar and ending with the different types of classes and classroom styles.
I appreciated all the extra resources and links to external websites. These are really handy and will serve me well while teaching.
I'm now ready to teach abroad with my TEFL Level 5 in the pocket!
