Excellent School

I just finished the 160 hour intensive course and I couldn't recommend it more. The instructors are all incredibly friendly and knowledgable and the atmosphere and the facilities at the location are all excellent. The school is committed both to educating you and helping you find employment as swiftly as possible after completion of the course. The workload was significant but manageable as the instructors are dedicated to assisting you every step of the way. There is a focus on crafting fun and interesting language lessons for the students rather than simply following the course book.

Some people would say that TEFL Iberia’s certification course is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And it is. But that's also an enormous understatement.

Getting my TESOL certification in July of 2019 wasn’t just a once-in-a-lifetime experience: it was an experience whose impact will last a lifetime. The course opened up a world of possibilities for me—quite literally—and equipped me with the teaching skills, intercultural appreciation, and practical knowledge to seek them out.

Surrounded by a diverse group of students genuinely engaged in and passionate about our work, supported by instructors equally invested in and enthusiastic about our success, my TESOL certification course was truly one of the most enriching, fulfilling, and enjoyable months of my life, one whose afterglow stays with me to this day.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Walk everywhere you can! Barcelona is a marvelously diverse city of cities, filled with gorgeous architecture, delicious restaurants, and quirky shops that can make even daily commutes to and from class a walking adventure.

A great experience! Highly recommended!

It's never easy to make the decision of moving to a new country and changing your career path: it is certainly an intimidating journey! But the staff and community at TEFL Iberia have helped to make this new country feel like home even before I arrived.
The structure of the course strikes the perfect balance between learning theory and putting it into practice when you plan and teach different levels. I really enjoyed input sessions and teaching practice with feedback from experienced tutors who really love what they do.
Thanks to this experience I made very good friends, met interesting people from different backgrounds, became a qualified EFL teacher and found a teaching job soon after completing the course.
My time with TEFL Iberia has been amazing and it 's definitely an experience I will never forget!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Enjoy the city, which is just amazing, make the most of the experience and do your best to learn as much as you can and complete the course! This certification will give you a chance to work anywhere in the world!

Such a good time in Barcelona!

TEFL Iberia is amazing!! Everything from the teachers to the location of the school. They help you with everything like housing and visas for example. The teachers are willing to help you around the clock so you are confident in your work and not stressed. The workload is intense but you are supported all the way. The environment at the school is really positive, I've made lots of friends on the course and it was great to meet local students in the practice classes. I would highly recommend TEFL Iberia!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Be prepared to work hard! The program is intense and you'll be very busy Monday to Friday.

I am living my best life thanks to TEFL Iberia!

Tefl Iberia is such an incredible academy and I couldn't be happier with how my life has turned out living in Spain since finishing the course. The amount of support you receive from your tutors is beyond amazing, I was given the upmost attention and time and the team ensured that I was feeling confident throughout the whole duration of the course. Along with the incredible support, I was equipped with all the skills and knowledge to allow me to enter the real world as a confident ESL teacher. I was provided with job and CV support which had me landing a job just 2 weeks after graduating the course and I have had their continuous support ever since! The location of the school is perfect, the facilities are great and the people are even greater. I cannot recommend TEFL Iberia enough!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Standing up infront of a class and teaching my first lesson. I overcame this with the support from my tutors and classmates as we were all in it together and the tutors were there every step of the way.

Taking this course at TEFL Iberia was 1 of the best decisions I have EVER made!!

Taking this course at TEFL Iberia was 1 of the best decisions I have EVER made!!

Don´t even think about it, just do it! The course made me step out of my comfort zone, I got over my fear of standing in front of a class and I learned so much within a month! The course is quite intense, but the end result makes it all worthwhile!! :)
You learn different teaching methods, create your own teaching material and get to experience what it´s really like to be a teacher! The tutors are phenomenal, they offer you as much help as they can, but at the same time leave you enough space to be creative and express yourself as a new teacher! Apart from helping you develop your teaching skills, the instructors also help you with your CV, and prepare you for what is to come once the course is over.

The school atmosphere is fantastic and everyone is happy and ready to help you with any enquiry you might have! There are always interesting people in the small library the school offers, making it a great opportunity for you to meet people from around the world. :)

A wonderful and unforgettable experience!

Highly Recommend

I had the most amazing experience with TEFL Iberia! Everyone from the staff to the teachers were happy to help in any way possible. Picking to do my studies in Barcelona was the best decision as well. There are so many opourtunities for jobs when you're done with the course here. The staff will help you extend your visa, which can be challenging at times. The course work itself is planned out nicely so you're not too overwhelmed. They help you with small things like what to pack to come, to bigger things like securing your housing for you. They make sure you are comfortable with who and where you are living. Overall I had a good experience and have no bad comments. You will not regret it if you get your TEFL certificate with TEFL Iberia, I can't thank them enough!

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing, everything they did helped me. I don't have any bad comments.

Great experience and value

After spending hours online researching different courses in Barcelona, I chose TEFL Iberia and I couldn't have made a better decision! I had no prior teaching experience so the thought of becoming an English teacher in a foreign country seemed like a great challenge (also kind of scary!). The 4 week TEFL course was intensive, in a great way, and I learned SO much. Everyone there is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and always there for support. You'll get practice teaching from the very first day and gain the confidence to prepare your own lessons along the way. This school definitely gave me all the tools I needed to start off on the right foot in Barcelona and I'm still continuing to learn new techniques through the Teacher Development Course. Now, who knows when I´ll return to California :)
