DT Bali 2022

I had a great experience with Destination TEFL! The course was challenging but very rewarding. The course curriculum is thorough and there’s a lot to pack into the four weeks. The workload can be quite intense at times, especially if you’re new to teaching like myself, but the Destination TEFL staff were supportive throughout. I really enjoyed the teaching practicums at a local Balinese school which gave me a real taste of what teaching will be like. Our trainer, Georgie, was a great teacher and we all got on really well as a group.

The course takes place in Sanur which has a nice chilled vibe and beautiful beaches. I was pleased to be somewhere with a relaxed environment and away from some of the temptations of the busier backpacker hotspots. Having said that, popular spots like canggu or Ubud are only a short taxi ride away if you want to explore the rest of Bali during the course.

Overall, I had a great experience with Destination TEFL and made some great friends along the way. I now feel ready to start my teaching career. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend!

If you're thinking of doing a TEFL abroad Destination TEFL is the way to go! I did the Bali course. Such a personal experience from beginning to end, with all the staff very responsive to any questions and so helpful.
Georgie, the course trainer, is amazing. She has so much experience and is very helpful and encouraging! She went above and beyond for all of us, and took time to get to know us all. She covered so much content in the 2 weeks of the fast track course. There was an in person placement in a local school and I was a bit nervous having the other people on the course watch my lessons and give feedback, but Georgie made it a safe space to share feedback with each other.
Destination TEFL recently moved from Canggu to Sanur, which I was initially disappointed with as I thought I'd be going to Canggu. However Sanur is the perfect place to do the course. It's that bit quieter which is ideal for getting work done. Cheaper than other places on the island too.
Great for making friends and I've made forever friends on the course from all over the world of all ages!
I have an online TEFL certificate and I'm a licensed primary school teacher so I did the 2 week fast track. But to be honest, I would highly recommend the full 4 weeks. There were so many gaps in my knowledge that the online TEFLS don't cover. Fast track is cheaper, but if you have the money you should do the full course, it will stand to you!
Thank you Georgie, Willie, Pingkan, and Rose-Anne!

  • Georgie the course trainer
  • In person placement in a local school
  • Great way to make friends

Amazing course !

If you have the opportunity to do the course just go for it ! Not only are we able to obtain a teaching certification after one month of training, but we actually have the chance to do it with an amazing group and in the most amazing scenery of Bali !

You will have to work for it but I promise you that once you put yourself in the rhythm, it’ll pass really quickly. Before you know it, you will have the opportunity to teach English to different groups of children and young adults in different establishments (orphanage, primary school, touristic institutions). Imagine the amount of experience you’ll gather in only one month!
Overall I think that this certification is a great asset to have in your resume and will definitely help you reach your goal of wanting to teach English abroad ;)

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I would definitely advise you to be focused on what is happening during the lessons from day 1. The danger would be to assume that the first few days seem easy, so you might tend to take it for granted and then ending up feeling stressed and overwhelmed when the course actually speeds up.

Best TEFL course going!

If you’re reading this then this is your sign to do this course!
This course is perfect for you if you don’t fancy sitting behind a screen for 120+ hours to become a teacher!
I did a lot of research before choosing where to do my TEFL course and kept coming across Destination TEFL Bali. I strongly recommend doing this course because it has been exactly what I needed and I’ve had a lot of fun with it!
Matt is an amazing Trainer and kept it fun even when things got busy! He really helps and supports you through the course.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?

My Bali TEFL experience

I had a great experience on the course, destination TEFL Bali was a great way to get overseas and get qualified, you might even say it kills 2 birds with one stone. I couldn't recommend the course more, I've made some great friends and memories I'll never forget, and I can't wait for more to come.
Matt (the course leader) was amazing not only helping us on the course, but getting us out here and and helped out with day off ideas, couldn't have wanted anything more.
If it's something you're thinking of doing? Go for it, what could possibly go wrong!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Probably the maggot that was wriggling round on one of the oranges during quarantine, day 1 meal 1.

Best course ever.

After doing a lot of research about TEFL courses before booking. This course far exceeded all my expectations. Matt is a fantastic teacher, and his experience is what gives the course the edge over other courses. It's not just learning about the games you can play, it goes so much deeper into teaching.
The time went by so quickly too, considering how much work you get through.

This was the best decision of my life. Matt and Roger were amazing hosts. 11/10 Would 1000% recommend you do it, even if you are only even slightly thinking about it, take the plunge. All of this said, and I haven't even mentioned the fact the class field trips and the fact that you are in the paradise that is Bali

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
If you even have only the slightest bit of curiosity in your head, about moving abroad and teaching english. Then that's enough. Do it. Take the plunge.

Great Course! Great Value! Great Instructor! Great experience!

Today is my last day of the course and I feel that I received more than my money’s worth with Destination TEFL Bali. The material is very informative and the instructor was one of the best I’ve had in any course from grade school through University. The course was very fun and I made some new friends as well. I feel very confident in my skills going into my first English teaching job. Thanks Destination TEFL Bali!.....................................................................................

Destination TEFL Bali

I took the Destination TEFL virtual course (via Zoom Application) in November 2020. After deciding to take my TEFL this year, I wasn’t sure whether it was better for me to take one of the cheap online courses or pay more for an “in class” course. After taking this course, it’s safe to say that it was well worth the money. This course did an excellent job preparing me to step into the classroom as an English teacher, create lesson plans, and keep students engaged. The course also did a great job preparing me to search for a job either in person or online. The owner/teacher Matt is absolutely fantastic and I can’t recommend this course enough.

Thank you Robert for your lovely review of our virtual course that was held via our Bali training centre. Perhaps one day you will be able to visit the centre in person in Bali, now that travel there is possible!
Kind regards
