Review of TEFL Course Level 5 Euné O'Kelly

The course was very helpful and insightful. It definitely helps with understanding lesson planning better. The assignments weren't too easy and challenged you to do more research and understanding of the topics. The business top up course is surprisingly interesting! It would have been nice of the top up courses showed up on the dashboard automatically and did not require a second enrollment. I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I really liked the included hanbooks, it will be very useful in the future , especially in class.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't be scared or intimidated of the top up busses course! It is actually very interesting and insightful , not difficult at all.
Pros
  • Very well organized.
  • Easy to understand and follow material and instructions.
  • No website crashes.
Cons
  • Having to enroll a second time to access the top up courses.
  • Repeated coursework.
  • The review on the tests after units doesn't show what the correct answers should be.

CAMBODIA

Within the next month I am going to Cambodia. And this would not have been possible if it was not for the TEFL Academy, especially for Henri. He assisted me through the entry process and answered all my questions I had. The course was extremely helpful in every way. I know for sure that I am going to use most of the materials in my own classroom one day. Stay focused during everything and make a lot of notes because one day you want to look back and use them. It is always helpful to look back at old notes and find something new to use.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have worked through the study material more in detail, and I would not have rushed through everything. Luckily, I made a lot of notes, which is very important for first time teachers.
Pros
  • It is one in a lifetime opportunity
  • You make a lot of new friends
  • You experience something new everyday
Cons
  • It is extremely hard work
  • Not everyone is always there to assist you

Excellent Accessibility, Materials & Support

The spur-of-the-moment decision to purchase and complete this course really paid off and was everything I expected and more! The six-month time frame suggested was well within my ability to balance my current job while working on my TEFL qualification. I found it easy to pace myself with the course content, had no trouble communicating with the very efficient admin and tutor support, and found the assignments fun yet optimally challenging, thanks to the clear and well-thought out instructions. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience!

Combined Level 5 TEFL course

I recently completed the combined level 5 TEFL course. My experience was amazing and with the support of the TEFL team I could complete the course. The course material are well organised and helpful for your future career as a EFL teacher. I would recommend this course to anyone with a passion for teaching and education in general. There is constant support to help you reach your goals. You will also receive assistance with your CV and covering letter to find a job. I am looking forward to working as an EFL teacher and travelling the world.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve-racking moment I experienced was completing the assignments. The standards are quite high and I didn't think I will be able to keep up with it. The TEFL team was a great help and answered as soon as possible when I needed any assistance. Every assignment also came with detailed feedback and I could improve any aspect on my next task.
Pros
  • Amazing assistance.
  • Helpful resources.
  • Great course material.
Cons
  • Relying on technology.
  • Different time zones during online sessions.
  • Job availability for people without a degree or experience.

Helpful Staff

The staff of the TEFL Academy are brilliant and very helpful. Anytime I had a query or a problem that needed help they replied to the email quickly and helped me find a solution to my problem. The recorded lives of each assessment (except for C as there wasn’t one!) were very helpful and made it easier to understand what to do for each part of the assessments. The case study’s in each unit also made it easier to understand how to put each teaching skill needed into practice and gave great examples.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Coming to the end of the course after being sick and not having finished yet.
Pros
  • The staff were helpful
  • The information was set out easy to learn
  • I had fun
Cons
  • Time management
  • It was a bit difficult to understand the coursework at times
  • There was no live for Assessment C

Challenging but excellent

I found the course to be challenging, but I enjoyed the challenge and learned so much about how to approach a lesson and how to give a lesson that foreign students will understand.
The assessments after each chapter are very insightful and really do challenge what you learned in the chapter, the assignments prepare you for a actual lessons that you will be doing in your future teaching career.
On completing the course I was surprised to see how many job opportunities there are, online and the need for English teachers in different countries.

100% RECOMMEND THE TEFL ACADEMY

One of the most easy processes I have ever encountered in my life. Applying and paying to take part in the course was super smooth and easy. Once they opened my page for me to start learning, I was able to get to all the material I needed. There was even a tutorial of how to use the online platform before you began the actual course. The actual course was concise, clear, integrative, interactive and provided many useful resources, examples and ideas. The quizzes really made me feel that I absorbed the information and the fact that it could be done over if you weren’t satisfied with your result was amazing ! The assignments were explained really well with templates to assist you all the way. I logged a ticket to one of the people who work at The TEFL Academy and they responded within minutes to assist me. Once I completed the course, I immediately received communication about how to receive my certificate and I received it within 3 weeks. Couldn’t be more satisfied with this course and the company through which I completed it.

What would you improve about this program?
Absolutely nothing ! They have thought of absolutely everything and provide 24/7 assistance.
Pros
  • Super quick and easy to do
  • Will benefit you throughout life
  • Anyone can do it
Cons
  • It’s all online so one might not enjoy not physically being in a classroom
  • Needs internet connection
