Yes, I recommend this program


I've been wanting to teach overseas for the last year and I finally booked my course when I was a postgraduate student at Kingston University in Southwest, London. I am learning a lot about teaching and the tools that are necessary to use in the classroom. The course has been easy to navigate through and I can go at my own pace. After I complete my certification I'm hoping to start teaching in a few different countries.

What would you improve about this program?
I think the course has a balance between the videos and the coursework.

240 hr Tefl Course

I purchased the 240 hr expert course package comprising of a the 120hr tefl course and a number of specialist courses including teaching business English and teaching young learners.
I found the courses to be easy to follow and extremely informative and the tips and advice gained has been invaluable. I have enjoyed building on my knowledge through my progression through the courses and found that the layout of the course pages made it extremely easy to track my progress. The downloadable resources and emails have also been very useful.
The staff at Premier TEFL have always been very approachable and eager to help and I have had a thoroughly enjoyable experience both through dealing with the company and through completion of my course.
I would encourage anyone looking into TEFL to make the jump and study through premier tefl, it's a wonderful experience.

What would you improve about this program?
After completion of the course the certificates should be email to the students so that they always have a copy to hand when their courses time out on the student area. They could add more study time as standard to courses requiring more time such as the bundled packages.

Incredible Course and Support Team

Before making my decision to get my TEFL and teach abroad, I researched heavily into where to get certified. If you are looking for a balance of a quality curriculum, cost efficiency, and personal support, then Premier TEFL is the team for you. I did my 240-hour course over a period of 6 weeks or so, but you have much longer to complete it as needed. Taking my time with the content, and saving the sections for reference later as needed, gave me a strong basis to begin my international teaching career. They provide a solid blend of written and video instruction, and were prompt in answering my weekly badgering of the staff about the little details that inevitably came up. I had several phone conversations before ever making a purchase, and the staff's patience in this assured me I was making the right choice with Premier.
Their accreditation, something anyone seeking a TEFL should not overlook, is world class and will be accepted throughout the world.

To begin my trip abroad I actually stopped by their office in Youghal, Ireland to meet the staff, and was delighted to discover they are just as warm and helpful in person as they were remotely. These are real people who care, and will go the extra mile to ensure you get in the right program regardless of their profit margin. This is rare, and stems from their wonderful business philosophy which Rosie, the head honcho, has instilled in the team.

There are many TEFLs out there, some cheaper, or more expensive, but for me Premier TEFL was the perfect match. They have connections, internships, and advice for all the teaching markets one could ever want, and have created something truly beautiful that enables adventures like mine. If you are dedicated to getting a teaching certificate, but don't know from what program yet, then I wholeheartedly recommend giving Premier TEFL a go as it was an educational and incredible experience from start to finish for me.

What would you improve about this program?
Only problem I had was sometimes with the hours since I was in the US and they are based in Ireland, but there's little to be done or fault in that. Just had to get moving a bit earlier on some days, but other than that smooth sailing.

Very informative curriculum

For my gap year, I wanted to teach English abroad to learn new skills, experience new cultures, help others by providing excellent English education, and get paid for it. I imagined myself living and working in a foreign country. Premier TEFL has helped me achieve that. The curriculum honed my skills so that I could to teach a diverse range of students, from young learners, to business professionals. Whenever I had questions or concerns about the course content or finding a TEFL job, Premier TEFL responded immediately, and was able to make my TEFL certification process as smooth as possible.

Bang for the buck!

I purchased this program to set myself up for opportunities to live abroad. It was easy to begin, easy to navigate, and contains great content. I went to college for education so the difficulty of the content itself is probably not a fair critique since I've done most of it. With that said, I would happily recommend this program and, as the title states, you get a lot for your dollar which is hard to come by!

Teaching in Thailand experience

Hands down! The best few months of my life!

I must admit I was a bit nervous to go off on my own to a foreign country as I've never been abroad for a longer period of time. But, I am so glad I did.

With the help of Premier TEFL, it was a breeze! From the moment I booked to the end of the internship. The friendly staff, their efficiency and always someone there to answer my phone calls and emails (I think I rang a bit too much haha!).

The experience in Thailand itself was something else! From the people, to the food, to the support, to the schools, to all the lovely people I met (who were in the exact same boat as me!)

Initially I thought 4.5 months was too long but it was too short! I wanted to live there forever! To anybody who is in two minds about going on an internship with Premier TEFL just DO IT! Take that leap of faith!

I've an experience, memories and friends for life! Thank you so much Premier TEFL!!

Overall Experience was Good

I would like to point out some pros and cons of doing TEFL from Premier TEFL.

1. Cheap and Best
2. User Friendly Panel
3. Nice support Team
4. Availability of some nice Internships even for Non-Natives like myself even in China
5. Accreditation
6. Multiple options like 240 hours, 120 hours, 30 hours, etc. with discounted upgrades available as well as various other discounts
7. Content is good as far as 120 hours TEFL is concerned, similar to what I have studied in my English Majors Bachelor degree
8. Addition of Videos and Pictures to explain the content
9. Scholarships available which are extremely attractive but only for Natives. :(
10. Better Paid internships in comparison to other websites but for Natives only
11. China internship sounds as good as any other Native internship. Available for Non-Natives as well. :D
12. Blended learning options but again only for Natives. :(
13. Worldwide availability of blended learning, internships and scholarships. For Instance, Colombia, China, Poland, Romania, India, and so on.

1. Pay extra for Enrollment Letter and Completion Certificate. (Reference Letter and Completion Certificate - hard copy are usually paid and are acceptable that way)
2. Low quality videos and images makes it hard to understand some of the content

At the time of posting this, I am about to complete my TEFL (120 hours) and begin with remaining 120 hours courses that I opted for.

What would you improve about this program?
1. Improve the quality of Videos and Pictures.
2. Need of more videos and pictures to explain the topic as plain text has never helped anyone understand anything even the expert level Teachers
3. Need of more qualitative non-native internships and scholarships
