Destination TEFL

It's an intense course which truly prepares new teachers for what they are about to undertake. The course is guided brilliantly by experiences TEFL teachers and they provide amazing course work in addition to supporting the soon-to-be teachers in a foreign land typically thousands of miles away from their homes. The intimidation of working abroad is diffused by the Georgie, Willy and Widi and they make the process, while challenging, enjoyable. The feedback is amazing and gives the students a sense of pride in doing what they are doing.

January course 2024

I feel so fulfilled to have been given the opportunity to complete this course and work in Asia. I am beyond where I ever imagined myself to be as a teacher thank to the help of the TEFL team. I cannot recommend the TEFL course enough as you will not only broaden your horizons for travelling, you will also make friends for life and share a experience of a lifetime with these people. My confidence and knowledge of teaching has grown immensely throughout the course. The guidance received by the TEFL team goes beyond just teaching as they have the experience of travelling themselves and can give helpful advice. As a student who has completed the TEFL course I would highly recommend this course to anyone I ever meet as it is an amazing experience with amazing opportunities.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
The most surprising thing for me was that by the end of my teaching practical's I was actually sad they ended. I had started out so nervous doing them and not enjoying them at all, but as time went on I began to look forward to my lessons. It was an amazing opportunity to build my confidence.

Destination TEFL

Moko and Georgie are both great at what they do. Georgie offers insightful feedback and really works to help you succeed as an ESL teacher.The students at the school where you do your student teaching are also very nice and attentive. Moko has built some great connections with local schools, which helps students both during the course and after. If you're nervous about leaving home, know that these two will take good care of you and help you navigate any obstacles during your time in the course.

  • Caring staff
  • In person teaching practice
  • Good location
  • Very intensive, if that's a problem for you

TEFL in Bali

Everything about this experience was a 10/10. You feel incredibly grateful towards the wonderful teachers that help you along the way and at the end of the course you will find yourself amazed by how much you were able to learn and grow in such a short amount of time. The training is challenging, but 100% worth it in the end! My friend recommended this program to me and I would happily recommend it to anyone who is thinking about teaching abroad. It is the opportunity of a lifetime and incredibly rewarding experience.

Lots of learns

I think it’s as organized as it can be. many factors can be unpredictable sometimes, like who is going to be part of the program, schools changing schedules last minute, misunderstandings happening due to the diversity of the group youre with… etc … so just be adaptable and flexible, open and understanding, and most importantly focus on yourself and your growth, development and learning experience. You’re here for YOU not anyone else so just make the most of it and keep a good attitude and dont forget to HAVE FUN!!! Because it is a lot of fun.

  • Definitely learned a lot
  • Fun, engaging, interactive and diverse
  • Lots of room for personal growth and development
  • Cant control whose part of the same program you signed up for
  • Very condensed material, so it’s a lot of work
  • Not enough time in the day

The training you will receive at Destination TEFL is unparalleled. You will be surrounded with friendly faces to accompany you along the way. From cultural excursions to in-school practicums, you will be fully immersed into Balinese culture. You will grow not only as a teacher but as a person with Destination TEFL. Then after you are finished, you will be given help towards applying to schools to teach in. The prospect of yea hung abroad is no longer daunting because the course has given me all the tools to be a successful and confident teacher.

I really enjoyed this course, i wasn’t sure what I would learn about teaching English - turns out there’s a whole lot, it’s extremely challenging but highly worth it. Its really well done and a lot of fun! I’ve made amazing friends here, I’ve seen a lot by doing the culture activities through the course. You’ll get 24/7 help/support with anything from the trainer and centre manager. I stayed in suda house which was great, the landlord is extremely accommodating and the room is clean and comfortable.

  • Meet friends
  • Amazing weather
  • Quality course
  • You’ll always be sweaty

A full on month!

This is an adventure that can shape someone's professional life forever. An intense month of lessons and practicum that goes so well with the fun times in class. The course includes a cultural day in which the students get to visit some historical and cultural sights, there is guidance and activities involved and it is a great bonding experience for the students as well as the staff. I also highly recommend doing a face-to-face course instead of online because actually having a trainer in the room with you and then putting it into the classroom in real life with real ESL students is invaluable.

  • perfect time management
  • great lesson planning
  • best support, both personal and professional
  • if there could be more time during the course for practicing that would be great.(course duration)
