TEFL course review to Rachel Walsh from Olena Anisenko

I've just completed the TEFL course and I am very happy! The course was clear and easy to understand. The course covers all the essential topics for teaching English as a foreign language. I feel more confident now. The support from the instructors was great. They were responsive to questions and provided valuable feedback. I liked the flexibility of the course, it allowed me to learn at my own pace. I will recommend this TEFL course to anyone looking to become a qualified English teacher. It is very good investment in your teaching career!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve-racking moment was when I got remarks about my work and I had to correct my answers.
  • I become more confident now.
  • I know how to create good lesson plan.
  • I am sure it will help to build my career.
  • It would like to have more activities
  • I would like to have more information about online teaching
  • I would like to have more iformation how to teach with individual students

Great content and support.

This course is amazing. It really prepares a person to be a teacher, because the content is great, the explanation is clear, and the activities help to practice what we just learned.
When I needed support, they were there for me, and the answers didn't take long.
Every time an Assessment was sent, the results were up very fast too, and I could move on to the next lesson.
If you want to become a teacher, of you do not have any experience, or if do have a lot of experience and you want some refreshment, this is the course for you.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would change the pace I used to do it. I think I could have done it faster.
  • Online course, which allowed me to take it anywhere.
  • Clear explanations, contexts, activities.
  • Long Assessments, too many questions.
  • One question could display a large number of questions, which was really tiring.

Level 5 TEFL Diploma review

I found this to be a well-laid-out and informative course. The coursework was easy to follow and the institute made it clear what they expected from you in the assignments. Corrections were returned speedily and there were plenty of extra resources available to help students built in within the website itself as well as plenty of helpful staff such as Rachel Walsh, that are a great bonus. I feel much more confident entering the world of teaching English now so overall, I am glad I completed this course and I would definitely recommend it to my peers.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
My advice would be to make sure you have clear, segmented study notes from the outset as in the beginning I found myself a bit unsure of which notes should be in their own chapter and which were a follow-on from the last topic. This became clearer the more I got used to the website layout but did result in me needing to rewrite notes from the first few chapters at a later point.
  • - Well laid-out website
  • - Good valuable course content
  • - Value for money
  • - Course time limited

Review 180 Hours TEFL 5

This was a very taxing course but extremely interesting and well worth the effort. At 64 years I am proud to have completed it and would love to get to teach online now, Rachel Walsh my tutor was great and helped me whenever I needed guidance. Thank you Rachel.
i am just concerned about the status of my other certificates (English Business and English Online and One-to-One - Both 60 Hours) plus my 10 hours Teaching Methodology.
The course overall was specific focused and on target. Thank you TEFL academy for the great experience.

What was your funniest moment?
To be honest I did not have any as I was so focused on completing my studies

TEFL Level 5 Diploma - (Ref: Rachel Walsh)

I enjoyed doing the level 5 Diploma as I have always had a natural interest in the English language. My expectations were high from the outset and I was not disappointed. The breadth and depth of the course is impressive and I found the material overall to be very engaging. I learned quite a bit and have a newfound respect for the work that teachers do, particularly before they turn up to class! I have found my tutor Rachel at TEFL Ireland to be very responsive and she answers questions accurately and quickly. Leo was also very helpful with IT issues I encountered, which he quickly resolved. Thank you TELF Ireland.

I found the 180hr course really easy to follow. The detail and material given is well done and relatable. I took my time completing the course and was able to get a extension this really helped and I am really happy I choose this course. There is access to tutors and online classes to help with studying. I am living in Spain and I'm excited to teach english. I would recommend this course for anyone who is looking to move abroad to a non -English speaking country, or wanting to travel through Europe or Asia.

My TEFL Journey

I am happy to study in the TEFL Institute of Ireland. The learning process is engaging and fun as there are so many interactive tasks. A lot of practical information is given.
Personally me I have known a lot of new facts about English teaching and I have revised and systematized my obtained knowledge. This course gives you a good chance to learn the information about teaching English in-depth, with all the little details. It was very helpful to have a test at the end of every lesson to do a self-check.
So the course is perfect for future teachers.

  • Many interactive tasks
  • Mini tests at the end of each lesson
  • There are cards with the option to turn them, but the turn button does not work
  • Some cards are cut at the bottom, so you can't read the information till the end
