TEFL Level 5 course

Overall it was a great experience, easy to follow and I truly enjoyed it! Every piece of information was interesting but also really helpful for a teacher's career. The tutors were always there to give great advice and feedback! I would recommend this to anyone who loves the English language as well as teaching and sharing language and culture with people of different backgrounds. Even as a non-native English speaker, if you have a good knowledge of the English language this can be entirely helpful!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Maybe I would spend more time paying attention to every single detail because everything is truly there for a reason! But overall it was really helpful!

It's absolutely the best course

A highly informative, applicable and easy to follow the course by absolutely knowledgeable professionals. The thorough, well-organised and engaging course content reflects the professionalism and the extensive knowledge of the professors in this field. I wish there would be more courses like this from the same academy.
For existing and especially teachers with experience, probably not a lot to learn, but it's a good refresher and for new teachers it carries some good reminders and ideas.
Special thanks to Lynne Cristofoli, Mairead O'Connor and Rebecca Brown Forden!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Better to be done when in an academic context and with an ongoing project to carry out the exercises and assignments.

Tefl level 5 online course

The tefl acadamy give alot of opportunities. I have enjoyed the Tefl level 5 online course . I had alot of time to complete all of the 10 units and assignments before the end date. I would recommend it for all adventurous ,fun,outgoing people and people that love kids and peope in general. Telf is an amazing company that can expand your carreer opportunities and you get a chance to explore the world. I found it in between easy and difficult. Now that I have my level 5 tefl Certificate, I can do what I love and be more adventurous.

Well organised, very clear and user friendly

The material is very presented and user friendly. I'm not a tech wizard but I found their website very easy to use. Lots of extra reading and resources. Very useful and comprehensive feedback from my tutors. The course covers every aspect: grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation etc , different teaching methods and styles. There is a very useful unit on classroom management, use of internet and modern technology. It also covers teaching different ages. I enjoyed it and recommend it. Great value for money.

What would you improve about this program?
I think one extra month. It is a very tight program

Level 5 TEFL Course

I had put off starting this course due to procrastination and fear, but I'm so glad I took the leap of faith to do it. Lockdown provided me with the time and the reason and now I am very happy to say that I passed. The structure is very good and I felt suitably challenged and supported. Some of the course, the grammar part, was difficult but I thought this was very fair and has only encouraged me to work harder in this area. I'm now looking forward to putting all my newly aquired knowledge to use and can't wait to get teaching.

What would you improve about this program?
I would update and extend the part abut online teaching.

Truly insightful

Taking the Level 5 TEFL Course truly did open my eyes to a lot of things I didn't pay much attention to in language teaching. When I enrolled for the course I didn't know what to expect. I saw all 10 units and their titles and was eager to dive in. The units were elaborate but easy to understand with loads of valuable resources in each unit and little activities in between to check your understanding. The assignments were tasking but in a good way because working on them gave me a sense of what creating lessons and searching for suitable materials for your students in the real world would look like. The feedback from each assignment encouraged me to work harder in the next assignment. Completing the course came with a great feeling of accomplishment and it was the best decision I made...

What would you improve about this program?
For people who find self study difficult, I would recommend that some units are taught by an online tutor. Some people find seeing their tutor or watching their videos easier for learning. Personally, the self study method worked well for me.

Excellent TEFL Course

This experience was very positive for me. I learnt a lot in a little bit of time. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in English language teaching. In this course you learn a lot of techniques on how to teach students a language. The course was very well structured, organised and clear. If there are questions the staff answers quickly and with precision. It provides also a lot of possiblities after the course is completed. The content is complete and embraces all of the important questions related to foreign language teaching.

What would you improve about this program?
I would like to have a more complete feedback on the tasks and not only grades.

Interesting course with good materials and good assistance!

I think the course is very well set up. Everything is divided into units and there are a lot of exercises to practice with theory. Every unit there is a test to take about the theory of the unit. There are three assignments in the course and I found these very useful. They are not difficult to do, and you learn a lot from them! It gives you many handles on how to make a lesson plan!
Classroom practice was also very useful. You practice with teaching in front of the whole group and it is helpful to get the feedback from other students! You can finish this course easily in 6 months if you have the time! I recommend the course with the TEFL academy!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
If you want to do this course while travelling, I would recommend to do it when you will stay for a longer time in one place. I was travelling when I took the course, and for me, it was difficult to combine because I was moving a lot.
