Amazing Experience with TEFL Academy

It was my first time enrolling in this course and TEFL Academy met my expectations. o anyone wanting to pursue a teaching career they can definitely enrol here as their material was very easy to follow and very easy to understand. Always follow the instructions and the content of the material that they provide. Study as much as you despite the busy schedule. I did the online course so it was easy to work around my schedule. Although, there are many academies out there I had a great experience with this one.

Overall a great experience!

The course is challenging and full of useful information. The course is regularly updated to provide up-to-date information about teaching trends and industry standards. Every time I reached out for help, I was promptly answered. The assignments are quite challenging but the support system in place to help students succeed is wonderful. I would recommend this course to those interested in obtaining a certification. With this level of the course, you are required to attend a classroom style training; the instructor for my session was very knowledgeable and had quite a bit of experience in the field. She was able to offer a great amount of useful advice for in the classroom and when searching for a teaching position.

Level 5 TEFL course

I was looking for a serious certification. It met all of my expectations. Amazing program, well built, easy to integrate. I loved my experience. It allowed me to learn at my own pace. It provided an excellent method and valuable knowledge on how to teach foreign language to learners from all horizons and ages. I feel I acquired tools that will help me become a good teacher. It will allow me to realize one of my dreams: Teach and travel. Can't wait to start! #Grateful Another plus are all the links provided allowing you to go further. And continuing learning is possible. Helpful customer service!

TEFL Academy

My experience was a new and unique challenge that made me think about my own native language in new ways and made me see teaching in a new light. I had to work hard and think about how I would make a lesson plan during the assignments. As a studying and aspiring linguist myself, I found every moment interesting. From learning the intricacies of the language to how to properly teach it to others. Whether you want to invest in your future or just have fun, the TEFL Academy has plenty to offer you.

What would you improve about this program?
I would recommend including more interactive activities within the course. They help from keeping some of the more reading intensive units from dragging on.

A Challenging and Rewarding Experience

I've been eyeing taking a TEFL course and did a few months of research from online to in class courses. The TEFL Academy was always one of the highest rated online courses that offered the full hours and flexibility. As a native speaker of English, I found this course challenging, but worth it. The teacher feedback is great and gave me lots of help in order to pass the assignments. I can't wait to use what I've learned here and I know I'll be prepared when I take over my first classroom. If anyone feels unsure about the TEFL Academy and the level 5 course, don't be! It is a lot of work, but you have plenty of time and help to get through it. I used up my entire 6 months, but I was also working, taking college classes and other things. If you dedicate your time on this, you'll be done in 2-4 weeks.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Dedicate more time to the assignments. I pretty much waited until the last minute to complete assignments and almost missed my deadline due to not factoring in how much time assignments need.

Overall, a great learning opportunity!

The lessons are easy to navigate, and the assessments are a great review of those lessons. The only parts I found a bit troubling were the assignments. After completing the course, I think this would be a fantastic opportunity for primary school educators familiar with lesson planning, but it's a little more challenging for those of us without that benefit. The ability to complete this online was both wonderful and daunting, since your ability to understand everything is dependent on you alone. Nonetheless, I would recommend this course for anyone!

What was your funniest moment?
Dancing when I passed my assignment is at the top!

The Best Value TEFL Certification

If you're looking for a Level 5 TEFL Course, your best bet is The TEFL Academy. The materials provided were mostly well-written, providing an in-depth look at important criteria for teaching English and even ensuring that you properly understand the language. While I did find some of the online material dry, the writers did a great job putting in humor that delightfully surprised me.

During the pandemic when face-to-face classes aren't really an option, or at least they shouldn't be, TTA's online courses will still provide you with everything you need to feel prepared to teach children and adults at all levels. It certainly gave me the confidence to jump right in. On top of that, they provide you with job resources and help after you've completed your certification.

What was your funniest moment?
At one point during a lesson, there was information about problems you might face when teaching young children. A particular part about how they will definitely chew on plastic covers made me laugh out loud.

Would Recommend/Take Again

The TEFLAcademy Level 5 TEFL course overall met my needs for gaining a TEFL certification. The course was easy to work through in a reasonable amount of time, and was cost effective, which were two important factors for me. I am hoping to use my TEFL to teach overseas in a Spanish speaking country, and I feel this course has prepared me well to do so. Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone looking to do their TEFL in a fully online format, and in as short of amount of time as possible.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I took this course again, I would have spent more time going through the suggested readings. Though not required, they likely would have supplemented some of the main curriculum and not only improved my scores, but also my comprehension of the material.
