Ninja Teacher TEFL Course

Hands down, the best academic and professional decision I have made in the past decade was to enroll in the Ninja Teacher Academy TEFL program. From Miranda's facilitation in getting us prepared, Chi's all round support and wizardry in making our transition from newbies to qualified teachers a seamless affair, to Sadie's incredible teaching skills and patience in moulding us into educators who will not crumble under any potential pressure while showing us the paramount importance of dedication and preparation; all under the watchful and kind stewardship of Alex, Ninja Teacher is a no brainer for any folks who wish to teach in Vietnam.

It is invaluable in aiding in that transition, creating a network, working closely with other teachers in training, gaining first hand experience, and being part of a well respected alumni. My experience with Ninja Teacher will not only serve me well while in Vietnam, but has provided me with transferable skills that will benefit me for many years to come.

Thank you Ninja Teacher Academy. 10/10

  • Thorough education with amazing focus on the fundamentals of TEFL teaching
  • First hand experience
  • Networking and engagement with schools for job opportunities
  • Lack of warning about the intensity of the course

Ninja In Class TEFL

I was really impressed with the staff and the instructors at the ninja course. I am not sure how I would be able to teach without all that I learned there. There support staff wwas especially helpful in coordinating and helping with job, interviews etc.. the school set up observations and solo teaching opportunities for us, which was quite valuable to gain important experience. Yes, you could save money with a cheaper online certificate, but the end class with all the support and job search help is well worth every amount of money spent. Choose ninja! You will be happy with your choice.
Best of success to you!

Ninja Teacher in person TESOL course

This course is great for those who are thinking of working and living in Asia. The people here are very supportive even after you complete the course and willing to help you however they can. The instructors were highly motivated and supportive. The gatherings they do are also great and encourages bonding with the community. The course itself has the content to make sure that you start your job with your head up and motivated. They were also very helpful with the job searching and placement assistance process.

NINJA Teacher Review

I completed the 4-week in-person TEFL course at Ninja Teacher in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in October 2022. Ninja Teacher is a great option for anyone looking to get certified to teach English abroad. The course is well-structured, and the teachers are experienced and knowledgeable. The best part is that they also offer job placement assistance which is very useful. I received a lot of help from the staff at Ninja Teacher and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to teach English abroad, especially in Vietnam.

  • The course is well-structured, and the teachers are experienced and knowledgeable.
  • They offer job placement assistance

Ninja Teacher was excellent!

Ninja Teacher was fantastic at every step of the way. They were very supportive about getting your documents and affairs in order to get into vietnam. once you were there, their staff was knowledgeable and helpful in every regard from wear to buy a belt to who to rent a motorbike from. The course is intensive and includes live observations of actual TEFL teachers and eventually gives you the experience of teaching your own solo classes (with plenty of support).

Once you finish the course they work with you at every step to make sure you have a job. not one person from our class didn't have an offer within 1 week of finishing the course. Not only that, but they told you which companies to stay clear of and vetted any contracts that seemed off.

  • Awesome support
  • Virtually assured job placement in reputable company
  • Make friends with your classmates
  • teaching your first couple solo classes is a bit terrifying

Ninja Teacher is the GOAT

I couldn’t say enough nice things about Ninja Teacher’s TEFL course.
I didn’t come across Ninja Teacher from Alex’s YouTube videos like many of the other students I’ve talked to. An in-person TEFL certification program was what I was looking for. I felt it was important to have the hands-on experience and feedback that an in-person training program could provide and Ninja Teacher delivered.
I have experience working in education prior to taking the Ninja Teacher course and I am qualified to substitute teach in my home country. But I have been hesitant to stand in front of a class as a teacher.
That has changed thanks to Ninja Teacher. I have recently started working for a prestigious language center in Vietnam and now have the confidence to teach effectively.
Chi is super supportive and helpful through the process of getting certified and finding meaningful employment. She was always happy to help whenever I had a question about any part of the process. And I had a lot!
Lastly, I have studied in college and at university for many years and have had only a handful of instructors that were memorable and stand out from the rest. Ninja Teacher’s course instructor Sadie is now one of those people. I couldn’t say enough positive things about her ability to instruct while keeping the learner engaged.
Thank you Ninja Teacher

Extremely useful and practice oriented

The program is incredibly well designed and gave me the foundation for starting a new career. Like many people I fell in love with Vietnam having been here for some years during covid. I was looking for opportunities to stay here permanently after the borders opened. I found Ninja and thought it would be useful to develop that skill set. The program has a methodology that's a truly strong foundation to build on. It's heavy in the first weeks but there is a lot of ground to cover. During the final week when recruiters came in it was great to see how eagerly graduates from this program are sought after. The support throughout was more than professional. They know what they are doing. I've felt supported throughout. Life in Vietnam is an adventure and it's a safe and wonderful place to look for another career. I strongly recommend it.
