Excellent [120-hour Premier online TEFL course]

  • 10/10
  • Recommends
  • Completed the course in June 2020

I have taken many courses online that did not leave a good impression.

However, the course structure for the 120-hour Premier online TEFL course is very good; aside from the grammar module (most people don't like grammar anyway), the course was 98% on par with what I needed to learn to become a successful English Teacher.

You have to pay for the extra resources, which I bought 3 of (Lesson Plans, Warmer Games and Young Learners pack). Even with these in a basic format, it gives you just what you need as a new teacher starting out trying to figure out how to structure everything.

The only negative point really is the Advanced courses they recommend, which are a little too steep in terms of pricing in my view.

Aside from that little niggle, I would highly recommend this course provider; better too look out for when the courses are on sale, as you can get absolutely amazing deals on the pricing!

Prepared me for a life of TEFL!

  • Course: UK and online, completed in August 2016

It was a good experience, as a complete newcomer to the industry I was looking for a course for direction more than anything. The course gave a reasonable coverage of topics and how to teach them, while also providing feedback on how to improve myself. I left feeling happier and more confident about getting out there and teaching for the first time. The information regarding job hunting was useful too. The websites given to me then, are still the sites I use today when looking for my next adventure, so that is a good thing I suppose!

Great course with outstanding support

  • Course: Online, completed in October 2016

Native English but had not practised english grammar for many years. Had a few issues with one of the assignments but my instructor was very thorough and gave me lots of guidance. I was more than happy with this course and recommend it to anyone who is new to teaching and wants to step into a teaching career. I passed with 95%.

Useful and Engaging Course That Provides a Good Foundation for ESL Teaching

  • Course: Glasgow and online, completed in March 2013

The three-day classroom component of the course was very enjoyable, and provided some good insight on how to plan and conduct lessons. The instructor provided valuable feedback on how each candidate could improve. My only gripe about this part of the course was that it wasn't long enough; five or even seven days would have been a better length of time.
The online component of the course (120 hours) was a good way to build on the foundations of the classroom experience, and focused on how to teach grammar, vocabulary, speaking and other skills. The online instructors provided prompt and useful feedback on assignments.

A good refresher - and more!

  • Completed the course in June 2018

I have been teaching English at college level for more than 15 years but want to go international for this coming accademic year. Since my national (Swiss) degree is not clear enough for many countries I participated in a 120h TEFL course and received not only a refresher but some valuable new ideas for my teaching methodology.
Well done and thanks to everybody at TEFL.org.uk
