TEFL Worldwide Prague Reviews
A big bang for your buck
Submitted by Matan Fox - Prague | June 15, 2018
If you're looking for a TEFL course in Prague, then TEFL Worldwide Prague is definitely the address.
I signed up for this course only reading previous reviews, not quite sure what to expect.
Well, for starters, the teachers are top notch.
Both Kenny and Adrienne are extremely patient, always willing to help and adept teachers who "know their stuff".
I myself have taught different age groups in the past, and wasn't quite sure if I could learn how to teach. I mean, how different could it be? Boy, was I wrong. So many ideas, so little time!
The course is many things. But it is NOT easy. Prepare to bust your guts for one month, and save your time for lesson planning and revising. If you want to have a month of site seeing in Prague, you better try sometime else in the future. Because, for this course, you must be committed 100%. And it is worth it!
I've had multiple job offers after graduating and could cherry pick the one which suited me the most. TEFL Worldwide Prague has an updated pool of job offers that is always up-to-date and you can trust the staff to help you out with different aspects after you've graduated.
I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to teach English abroad.
Worth every single penny!

While some are turned-off by the fact that the school isn't located in the city centre, don't let that deter you - if anything, it probably helped in terms of making sure that I buckled down and got my work done! It's well connected to all forms of public transport, so you're by no means cut-off from Prague or the ability to see the city when you have free time.
Kenny and Adrienne are fabulous instructors. While the course can be intense, there is plenty of help to make sure that you get the most out of what you're learning and that you have a thorough understanding.
Unlike other courses out there that expect you to already know English inside out (one of which I had already wasted some £££ on), the TEFL Worldwide team arm you with the tools to learn new aspects of English that you may not be familiar with or that future employers may want you to have a better understanding of.
There is nothing that you can't ask the team here. They are genuinely such awesome people and they want to make sure that you succeed and enjoy your time in Prague. Less than a week from graduation in May and I had a job offer for a summer school not far from where I live in the UK.
If you have any specific questions, you can get in touch with the team via the website - you can even ask to be put in touch with an alumni, which speaks volumes to me the type of school they are.
Exhausting and hugely rewarding
Submitted by Franklin Wilson - Prague Czech Republic | May 22, 2018
The course is exhausting. You will have nights with few hours sleep. This course, you will think, ridiculously over-prepares you for teaching in the real world. But it is better to be over-prepared than under-prepared, right? The course can cause a lot of stress, but if you work very hard you will overcome it. If you are not a natural teacher, then perhaps it might not be for you. But if you love the idea of teaching, you will love it! And you will overcome it. The ridiculously hard work, bear in mind, is temporary because once you master teaching all aspects of teaching the English Language, you won’t have trouble remembering it. It just takes time and practice, and lots of hard work over the 4 weeks. It is the same as teaching primary school English, but to adults, for whom English is a secondary language. Personally, although I had many difficulties to begin with, I began to really enjoy the course. I grew into it. The last 2 weeks have all the exams, assessments, assignments and deadlines, but those weeks I was ironically least stressed out . My confidence increased, because my knowledge of what was required began to grow. The teacher instincts became natural and instinctive to me, which I was really pleased with.
Depending on what your personal long and short-term goals are following the course, that will determine how highly you rate the course and whether you think it was the right decision. I am very confident and very optimistic that this course will in time turn into the best decision I ever made. I am 23 and have many years ahead I would like to think. I will have a teaching job soon. The opportunities, socially, financially, linguistically, travel-wise and the idea of living and working in Prague with ultra-flexible hours over the summer, are impossible to beat in my opinion. It literally unlocks so many doors and you find out so much yourself and the relationship you have with yourself. With the certificate, after the course, I don’t think there is a better, more productive or more proactive way to live one’s life. It is so easy to get a job, which is so flexible because you can choose to work the hours that are suited to you at all the language schools and companies. The lifestyle in Prague after the course is reminiscent of Woody Allen’s films, namely “Vicky Christina Barcelona” and “To Rome with Love”. Especially in the summer. What’s there not to like that, eh? It is certainly worth the effort I am telling you!
The 2 teacher trainers and assessors, Kenny and Adrienne are fantastically good. Cheryl and the rest of the staff really go beyond the extra mile trying to help you, whether it is with the course accommodation after the course, or jobs after the course. They are so helpful, experienced, knowledgeable, polite, professional and friendly. They really give 110% and that is no exaggeration! You also get real students which is also a very important experience with observers (other trainees) and the trainers who have decades of experience teaching ESL. The experience and feedback was extremely helpful in all cases. Although criticism at times was hard to take having me put so much effort in, it is so pivotal and beneficial because it really helps you get where you need to go to in order to be the best teacher you can be. Having 3 teacher trainers that observe you who between them have taught in 60 countries over 20-30 years each, is so helpful. You will not get better constructive criticism or feedback.
In terms of aspects of the course, the information is priceless and invaluable. They will always be of use. I was introduced to the use of phonetics for the first time, despite having studied 2 languages for 7 years of my life. The phonemic charts will be extremely useful. The course was extremely illuminating in highlighting the most effective ways to pre-teach the new lexis. How to teach Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking lessons were also of extreme help. I also had to teach classes how to use a monolingual dictionary in the English language for the first time. In addition, there was the one-to-one assignment which although it was a relentless administrative burden, it was essential in pointing out the things to look for, prepare for and assess. They also help you do lessons on grammar and functional language too.

This TEFL course was an amazing experience. We had amazing teachers and were able to teach real students starting our second day. Everything we learned was necessary and useful while teaching ourselves, not a minute of the course was a waste of time. Everything was super organized and the support system was great - from before the course, during, and after! I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is considering a TEFL certification.
So grateful for TEFL Worldwide

TEFL Worldwide offers some of the absolute best training in Prague. The instructors, first of all, are incredible. I have never met two people with so much knowledge and real world experience on one subject. The staff is so supportive leading up to the course, during the course, and even after the course. I can count on TEFL any day of the week as an alumni for anything from printing to receiving mail. TEFL WW is a game changer in TEFL certificates and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to change their life and move abroad!
