Student Reviews
I am truly impressed with TEFL SA. I was sceptical at first… However, I was soon proven wrong and thoroughly enjoyed each moment of the course. The practical weekend brought the online information together nicely, where theory is put into practice in such a logical manner. This course is worth it!


Anyone willing enough and no matter your age , going through this course is really satisfying and an eye opener to knowledge you’ve probably had but never fully explored its full potential. Highly recommend this course for anyone willing to become a tefl teacher!

Loved the practical course as it gave me a bit more exposure to the processes of teaching in the TEFL world. The on-line course was good but without the practical I feel I would flounder more than a little!
The tutor on the practical was fabulous and is a very good example in how to manage a class!
My interactions with the other students in the practical made it most enjoyable, so thanks to them too!
I highly recommend the TEFL course to anyone thinking of heading into the field of teaching English as a foreign language; be it online or in the classroom. The course material was extensive and the weekend practical was an excellent opportunity to put knowledge into practice.
