Any TEFL course, no matter how mediocre, can get a few trainees to leave positive quotes. We ask every single graduate of our course to leave feedback about their experience and we publish it here, completely unedited, so that you can get an accurate picture. Our graduates’ opinions are very important to us and we regularly make adjustments to the course based on feedback received.

All graduates are asked to give short answers to three questions and then rate various aspects of the course from 1 – strongly disagree to 5 – strongly agree. Please take a few moments to read what our graduates say.
