great class and support

It was a great class. The course work felt overwhelming in the first half, but after getting a bit more used to lesson planning, the second half felt a bit easier. There were a lot of good input sessions. As a native speaker there were many times that the class helped to raise my language awareness of many grammatical/lexical features that I had never actually thought about. Another side bonus to the class is that the staff at the ALC and ViaLingua team were very helpful in writing references for not only me, but for everyone in the class. On the last day of class, I had an interview and got hired to teach English in Morocco. I am really grateful to Omar and the rest of the ViaLingua team for preparing me effectively for a future in English Language instruction. Having been working full time in Morocco for the past 3 months, I can honestly say that this course gave me the tools that I need to succeed in EFL instruction.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
If you are interested in teaching English, this course is the way to go. I know that you can do TEFL or TEFL-equivalent courses online for possibly less money, but I have NO idea how you could substitute the practical hands on classroom teaching experience and the abundance of insight from experienced teachers that you will have daily in the ViaLingua Marrakech program.

I would like to thank Via lingua for the opportunity they gave me as I want to thank Mr.Omar for the support. Thanks to the certificate I could find a job in Vietnam.

TEFL certificate is really important to be selected for an English teaching job so I reccomend to you join Via Lingua to get not just the certificat but also to get an idea about the classroom.

During my stay in Marakesh, I learned a lot and had the chance to meet other teachers from other countries. Our teachers were senior teachers in University and they shared their experience with us.

Finally, I would like to advice young teachers like me to take the risk and apply for a job overseas because it is too much fun. China and Vietnam are the biggest markets now so grab your chance and come over.

No time to waste! get TEFL certified right now!!

What's Via Lingua Marrakesh about? Well... It's simply so interesting, with rich content and a lot of learning. Not only you get exactly ALL what you ACTUALLY need to TRANSFORM into an experienced English teacher, it offers you adequate talents and appropriate qualities to take hardest life challenges as well, with great confidence and high self-esteem. Much work, a push of perseverance, a bit more of efforts, and you'll find yourself straight in front of the success gate, ready to step across the threshold of employment. Via Lingua Marrakesh TEFL training will surely grant you a highly appreciated added value you can absolutely rely on along your professional path.
In one word: An opportunity to seize! That's what I actually did in September 2019 when I took the intensive course.
Just taste the warm and welcoming breeze of Marrakesh, explore foreign cultures, meet nice people, and eventually get TEFL certified. Worth it.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The first time you stand up before your students, when you're requested to perform your very first teaching practice. So funny at the end because the fear leaves you within the first five minutes and you get familiar with the teaching job.

The best decision I have ever made

I've been an English teacher for about 3 years now thanks to VIA LINGUA and its stuff; from the director of the American Language Center to all the profesional trainers. Every single teacher of the trainers will help you and push you so hard to learn and achieve the main aims of the training program.
But, why should you enrol in? Throughout the three years of teaching, I've met and interviewed a lot of '' teachers ''. Unfortunately, most of them don't know what a lesson plan is which is shameful. Yeah, IT IS. They have no idea how listening, grammar, vocabulary, writing, speaking, and reading should be taught! So, they just copy from the teacher's book or depend on the others to help them when they're stuck. I rarely use the teacher's book simply because it doesn't know my students better than me, and I know what, why, when, and how I teach something. In other words, I'm a qualified,independent teacher.
That's concerning teaching, but what about you? The teacher! VIA LINGUA will help you to become a more humaine, caring and creative teacher.
All in all, if you want to be a qualified English teacher, don't hesitate to take this course.

Teaching from different perspectives

The via lingua course (CTEFL) was a unique experience for me. Theories, approches, and techniques were some of the things I got exposed to. I also got exposed to various teaching methods. Tutors were there for us to give positive feedback on every teaching practice. I learned that an effective teacher is someone who seeks to improve himself/herself. Someone who reflects on his/her lesson after every class they teach to see what went right and what went wrong. I learned that there are three kinds of lesson plans: the one I want to teach, the one I think I am going to teach, and the one I ended up teaching. I learned that students are always in the hub of interest. I learned that there is no end to learning. Effective teachers try their best to live up to students expectations.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
The TEFL course is a key to teach English overseas.

Via lingua is simply the best.

I highly recommend VIA LINGUA Marrakesh.It's a course where you learn how to teach.It's a training that has a good reputation.You can get a teaching job as soon as as you get your certificate either here in Morocco (as I did) or abroad as a lot of my friends did(e.g China, Turkey...)
It' an exeprience where you develop professionnally and personnally.You'll meet different people from different countries and amazing and professional trainers who will help you MASTER THE ART OF TEACHING.
I took the intensive session in July 2018.It was really tiring as we had to prepare for lessons,observe classes,attend input sessions,write templates...all this in a daily basis..But at the end of the course.I learnt a lot..I felt that I am a real TEACHER..That's why I encourage you to join the training..Be sure..you won't regret.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If there's an opportunity to do this again.I won't hesitate...I really miss the creativity of Omar and said.

Taking THE VIA LINGUA TEFL COURSE in the ALC Of Marrakesh was without shadow of doubt the one RIGHT choice I am not regretting !
Thanks to all the teachers who made it easy for me to grasp and put in practice so many TEFL aspects From pedagogy theory to classroom management. I would highly invite anyone who has the passion for teaching english to take this road.
Having the via lingua certificate will definitely help you become a good teacher.

The feedback, constructive advices and the monitoring that you will get will only make of your VIA LINGUA Course experience a unique and mindblowing one ! Just go for it !
