ROLLER-COASTER MOMENTS

One minute I was up and the next I was taking a nosedive. At times I felt like a child with a new toy and at other times I felt I had conquered the world. The TELF Acadamy Level 5 course has it all. It takes you from one English element to the next with ease, but you have to be focused and fully engaged as there are some tough challenges along the way. I learned so much from this interactive course and would highly recommend the academy. Top-notch and, what a ride into the English Language realm. Thank you.

The TEFL Academy

The TEFL Academy offers excellent courses in teaching English as a foreign language. I have done a few courses with them and would honestly recommend them to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge in this area. The course content is informative and instructional and gives you all the tools you will need in your future or current teaching career. The online platform is user friendly and the ability to work at your own pace is a huge plus. Overall the TEFL Academy offers excellent courses and learner support and I highly recommend them.

What was your funniest moment?
The funniest moment I had was during the online Teaching Practical course with the TEFL Academy. It was a fun interactive Zoom class with students from all over the world. We had a lot of good laughs together while we practiced some teaching techniques with our peers.

My TEFL Online experience

What an exciting 7 months it has been. Beginning the course I was quite on the fence, thinking it might be a scam. However, the TEFL team set my mind at ease by answering all questions I had promptly. I teach English in Swaziland and the information I have learned showed me just how much knowledge is available to me. I am now waiting for my certificate and I am excited about the future and hoping TEFL academy will assist me in fulfilling my dreams of moving abroad and experiencing different cultures while teaching English. Thank you TEFL academy.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I did this again I would aim to finish the course sooner in the hope that I am able to travel soon after.

Wow! The TEFL Academy! Keep up the great work!

I started my studies with The TEFL Academy, on the Level 5 (168hours).
During this pandemic the support and service was really outstanding! Could not have asked for a better education institute during this time!
Life is sometimes really challenging, but the TEFL Academy will always help their students in any way necessary. Showing their students that their is much more to life, with all the challenges coming towards us
If you ever want to study TEFL, don't hesitate to do it through The TEFL Academy!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The moment I received my results on one of my assignments, and saw I did not pass, but I tried again, this time with the knowledge of the assessor, and mine. I tried my best and passed the assignment.

TEFL 168 HOURS online course

I chose to take up the TEFL course and with no regrets this really gave me great insight even as English is my first language, there was so much more to learn of.

The course was challenging to me and to me is a good thing, as it encouraged me to work harder. It had good content overall and a variety of activities to test your knowledge, clearly indicating where you needed improvement.

A wining point was the marking strategy was done on a positive note motivating better results. I found this very helpful as I was not being reprimanded for my mistakes but rather guided to the correct way.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Waiting to see if I passed an assignment . This was nerve wrecking as I am a new mom, a new home owner, a mourning daughter in law, a employee of construction and failing an assignment meant I needed to sacrifice the last 40 winks of zzz 💤 I had.

A very well thoughout course with well designed assignments to test you knowledge and understanding of the course and work you've learned thus far. I really quite enjoyed the breakdown of each of the units and breakdown within each unit was well thought through. The assistance provides by the Tefl academy was really good and surpringly quick response when help or assistance is needed. Would gladly recommend the TEFL academy to family and friends. Great course to do with a friend.
Very well done!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
The in-depth analysis of the English language was widely discussed and well brought across throughout the course.
