I had such an amazing experience! The course was very well structured with tutor support and lots of information. Wilma was an incredible teacher- I learnt so much from her in such a short period of time. I would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in teaching English

I am a teacher and have been for many years and firmly believe that TEFL should not only be used to teach learners that want to learn a foreign language but it should be used on our schools! It’s interactive, fun and covers the learning of language comprehensively……. It’s an amazing program and I am so glad I did it ! Thank you TEFL for exposing me to your course and methodology….

I absolutely loved my TEFL South Africa course, the website is user friendly, the support staff are so helpful and I really appreciated that I received feedback the same day after queries. Although the practical was mentally exhausting our trainer was amazing, informative and explained everything beautifully. I highly recommend TEFL SA Combined 140 hour course.
