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.

The best thing about the course was? Good fusion of praxis and theory, skills discussed in class are demonstrated and practiced in real time and in real situations. The teachers themselves make mistakes and will highlight them, so there is a good mix of vulnerability and authority with them:
The thing about the course that needs the most improvement is ? um….don’t know. I wish I had known before flying here that most places require that you fly home to your visa-issuing country FIRST, before being eligible for a work visa in their country. But that’s not TEFLs fault that I didn’t realize that.
Your short quote about your experience? I was extremely skeptical in the beginning about how much one can actually learn in 4 weeks, but I was wrong. The complete immersion combined with praxis provides for an extreme level of on the job training. I majored in linguistics but I doubt I learned

The best thing about the course was? The opportunity for ample teaching practice. The students that showed up for all the lessons were really great as well.
The thing about the course that needs the most improvement is ? At times it was difficult not to take things said during feedback sessions personally. Feedback sessions should focus on what the teacher can do better to make their lessons more effective, not simply pointing out everything you did wrong.
Your short quote about your experience? Overall was a very good experience. I now feel prepared to step into a classroom and begin teaching.
