Highly recommended course

I took the 120-hours Advanced Online TEFL course during the summer and I studied the module during my free time off work and university, and I found the 3-month limit given to complete the course was plenty time. I had taken EFL training in the past and had a brief experience in teaching EFL to adults, and this TEFL training helped refresh some things I knew already but also enrich my knowledge in a new and exciting way making me feel more prepared and confident teaching. I haven't sought job advice with them (at least not yet) so I cannot comment on it, but from the little general communication I had with them on the matter, they sounded more than willing to help with anything.

Angloville TEFL Scholarship

Premier TEFL provides a wonderful opportunity for travelers seeking unforgettable experiences with invaluable cultural exchange. It's a very cool program that offers English language learner's an immersive space to practice conversation and build their confidence speaking English as a foreign language.

As a native English speaker, it's as easy as having natural conversations to participate as a volunteer. In exchange, you get to visit beautiful places in whichever country the program is being held, as well as a week's worth of tasty meals and nice hotel accommodations. But the most rewarding aspect of volunteering with PremierTEFL is the fascinating and wonderful people you'll meet and interact with, fellow volunteers and local language learners alike. It's amazing the strong bonds that form over the course of one short week.

I absolutely and fervently recommend Premier TEFL, especially to those looking to have more meaningful travels - not only do you save on meals and lodging, but you can contribute something valuable to the communities you visit. And earn TEFL certification in the process even!

Changed my life

The whole programme was fantastic.
We had a great time working with the Polish participants. The online course was well structured and a very easy layout to follow.

Once we arrived in Wroclaw everything went smoothly and we really loved the experience. Normally I never post reviews, however I really feel that other people should try this programme. Both of us are now fully TEFL qualified and are heading out to Thailand with PremierTEFL on their internship in May. I can't wait for the next adventure.

Superb!

My first step into teaching was with this programme & exploration into my potential as a teacher of English. The course was very well laid out and easy to follow once I arrived in country the co-ordinators were brilliant & encouraging to Native Speakers & Polish Participants alike. It's an intense experience but one that I will definitely be looking to participate in again. Thank you for the opportunity to teach, touch, learn, share & give.

Anglo-TEFL scholarship experience in Poland

I decided to apply for the Anglo-TEFL Scholarship almost spur of the moment. I applied on Friday and started working on the online course immediately because earning my TEFL certificate was already a goal. By Monday, I was accepted into the program and several weeks later I was in Poland. The online modules were helpful but the highlight of my experience were the conversations I had and the friends I made during the three Angloville programs. These English Immersion Villages are well-planned, yet provide a fun, relaxed atmosphere, very nice room and board, and a valuable and memorable experience for English language teachers. I've already signed up for two weeks next summer at different venues in Poland. Highly recommended.

Good intro to teaching English

In my view the online course was a little light, in that it did not cover the elements of the English language that a teacher must know well in order to teach: the rules and grammar. I believe it was not designed to give a rigorous treatment of these topics.

The on-line course, however, is very good preparation for teaching by conversation, as a native speaker; this style of teaching also has an important place, as many students have studied the grammar in school, but need more practical experience by simply engaging in conversation with a native or proficient speaker.

The two weeks of practical experience through Angloville were very helpful to me, and on the basis of what l learned there I have begun to take on private students. A key element of what Angloville offers to its students is the preparation of business presentations, and I intend to try to find students or companies interested in taking lessons from me in this area too.

Premier TEFL is more interested in on selling extras than they are in providing a quality service.

Working with Angloville (our sponsership providers who we did our practical component with) was fantastic. Working with Premier TEFL - not so much. The online course has some good resources and covered important aspects of teaching but has quite a few typos and other errors throughout it. There is also no opportunity to interact with others who are also studying the online course.

The main reason for my low score was the poor quality of customer service. We had to chase them up to get a free copy of our certificate (as per our scholarship agreement) and they only respnded to our enquiries when we got our sponsers (Angloville) on board by cc'ing them into the emails.

So that gave me the very strong impression that while they cared their reputation with Angloville, Premier TEFL had a policy of delaying giving us our certificate in the hopes that we would just pay for it so they could get more money out of us.

Unforgettable experience

Honestly amazing and a life changing experience. The students you work with in this program are so kind and overall amazing, and its always hard to say goodbye. The coordinators in charge of each program are wonderful people to get to know. If you love traveling, volunteering and meeting wonderful people on the way, then this is the course for you. I recommend you giving it a try!

Good qualification for CV, but don't get deluded

I thoroughly enjoyed doing the TEFL online course, but felt less than stretched by the end-of-module tests. Maybe it is because I come from a generation when we had to take 'real' tests to get a pass mark, and we were not able to just reset and try again a few minutes later!

I've now done the whole course again twice, and would still not consider myself to be a 'teacher' - maybe classroom assistant level, but that would be it. I am now set to do several more of the Angloville courses to get more experience before venturing out on my own.

That hands-on learning has taught me more than just the online tick-box course would have and has been the really enjoyable, and testing, part for me.

Native speaker/volunteer on an English immersion program

This summer I've completed 3 weeks work on English immersion programs in Hungary and Poland. I truly recommend this experience to anyone and everyone who wants to travel, be immersed in new cultures, and work with young people.

Over the space of my time at Angloville I was able to watch the participants gain immersive confidence and improve their English speaking skills dramatically. It's difficult to summarise in a short text how fulfilling this was. One of the most amazing aspects of the program is the sense of community it builds between the volunteers, participants and coordinators with a focus on interactive and inclusive learning, and most of all fun.

I have made life long friends and have learnt a lot myself and the way I communicate and teach, as well as adapting my style to different learner needs and abilities. These camps seem to mean a lot to the participants also, and going home is frequently filled with teary goodbyes and email exchanges.

I am really proud of what was achieved by all involved at each of the camps and will most definitely go back.

I've finally made it!

Having no idea TEFL or what it entailed. I was surprised at how easy it was to get a job since getting qualified. I have had two different job offers and accepted a full time position for 10 months in Benjamarachutit Ratchaburi School, Thailand.

Everything is happening so quickly, I must say that Premier TEFL have been priceless in the help and advice they gave me. Would recommend this company to anybody.

What a time

I was reluctant to go initially. I had no idea what to expect, but by the end of the second day I had made up my mind to return next year for more then just 2 camps. The people in charge were very friendly and completely approachable. I can't wait for next year to go back again.

PremierTEFL opened up the doors to teaching abroad!

In February - March 2016 I took part in a x3 week 360 hour TEFL Qualification and +200 hours Observed Teaching Practice (Angloville Adult) accredited TEFL tuition with hands-on teaching experience in Eastern Europe. Most of all for me it demonstrated core teacher characteristics that help to create an effective learning environment:

Respect - Being positive and non-judgemental
Empathy - Being able to see things from another’s perspective
Authenticity - Being oneself

Thanks to PremierTEFL Scholarship I am now officially qualified as a TEFL teacher and ready to travel to my dream destination and make my mark on the world!

First impression never last! Thanks PremierTEFL!

When I stumbled across PremierTEFL I thought how can this programme be so cheap? I decided to sign up after I read the reviews on Go Abroad. I was still sceptical even when I had handed over my money. I can honestly say they have been brilliant since the day I enrolled. The service is top drawer and advice I have received has been brilliant.
I have just finished the TEFL expert course and started applying for jobs, I've already been offered a teaching position in Honduras. It just goes to show how wrong I was.

Thank you Ciara for all of your help, I have e mailed Rosie to tell her the service you gave me, I'll make sure I send the postcard as promised :)))))

They deserve my review

No joking this company is well worth using. I came across it through facebook and thought what's the catch as they seemed so cheap compared to other TEFL providers. I paid my $270 dollars for the expert TEFL course and was ed immediately with my login details. As I worked through the course my tutor always responded within 12 hours to guide me. When I finished the course they found me a TEFL job in Portugal teaching in a training college for hotel staff. I would highly recommend anybody to go with them.
I have been out here for 4 months now and find the work and friends I have made truly wonderful, I have never looked back and intend to move on in September with PremierTEFL to Spain. What a way to travel. Good luck to you all those who decide to take the plunge.

Superb opportunity

After spending some time looking into various TEFL courses, I was extremely pleased to come across the Premier Tefl through Angloville and was immediately impressed by the comprehensive course content, the ease of use and quick responses to module assessments. It is easy to keep track of progress, and review information as well as going back to any unfamiliar areas. There are also many links to further reading and research to help guide you along a splendid and overall worthwhile journey.

I'll never look back

I was a bit worried which TEFL course to choose as there as so many, but this one was recommended by a friend of a friend and it was definitely the right choice. I found that the way it was set out with mini quizzes set throughout was very helpful and going through everything step by step was great. Receiving feedback was also very good, along with opportunity to take the teaching internship in Spain which in turn gave me the confidence I needed to teach in Dongjak, Seoul.
They are a good company and very knowledgable. I have not been given anything to write this review but I think if you get good service then you should let others know. Annyeong chingu!

Look no further

I am extremely happy that I did the PremierTEFL free TEFL course. I started the online course way back in Jan 2016, and had it finished by the end of FEB. Before I joined the course I had never thought that I would like to go abroad and find a teaching job. In fact I was very apprehensive initially. But as I proceeded and progressed I found it very interesting, engaging, informative and insightful. It has been a great learning experience for me. I have recently completed my two weeks observed teaching practice in Hungary and Poland all I can say is the whole experience has been fantastic.
I am thankful that guidance was provided to me over phone and mail as and when I desired. The course and the feedback I received, has boosted my self confidence and now I feel confident to further my TEFL career, I am currently looking at the PremierTEFL teaching internship in Colombia.
I have already begun to recommend this course to my friends who wish to further their teaching carrier and aspire to expand their horizon.
Thank you PremierTEFL.

The free TEFL course

I searched for a while to find an online TEFL course which I felt would be worth the time and money. Hey Presto PremierTEFL to the rescue!

This FREE TEFL course was just unbelievable, and very well structured! I could work at my own pace, and my tutor was quick with responses as well as giving me very helpful advice. I’m currently on the second week of my live teaching practise in the “Chojnik Hotel” in Podgórzyn Poland. I have met some of the most amazing incredible people on my journey, this has to be one of the best experiences of my life and it was completely free!

Whilst I have been here I have been invited for an interview to teach students in a private language school in Krakow @18 euro per hour. I would definitely recommend anybody to take any of the courses offered with PremierTEFL.

Pleasantly surprised

It’s been a while since I’ve chosen to study anything but I really enjoyed this experience. Having spent quite a bit of time looking at the different courses on offer, choosing PremierTEFL was definitely the right choice for me (not only because of the price). The course layout was well structured and easy to follow and also had plenty of helpful materials and links to other websites along the way.
I passed the course first time which was a great bonus. I would happily recommend to anyone thinking of pursuing TEFL as a career.

You must try this programme out

I traveled from Amsterdam to Budapest and Warsaw for the classroom based teaching practise. The locations we did the practise where superb. The venue was fit for purpose, imagine I stayed in 2 lovely hotels and had my meals paid for. Not only that I met some great people with whom I am still great friends, "in fact next week I am travelling to Dublin to stay with one of them for 4 days" The Course supervisor was motivational, well prepared, competent, optimistic and very encouraging.

I found the online part of the course was ideal and well-structured for me because it allowed me to complete the course at my own pace and I easily completed the course over a for week period. I am a new teacher ( B.A in English Language and a PGCE in German) the TEFL teaching programme both refreshed my approach to teaching and also presented new insights into different teaching practices.

The TEFL course opened career opportunities that otherwise I would be unable to pursue. I thoroughly recommend the TEFL Course and PremierTEFL to anybody wishing to continue an EFL teaching career abroad.

I don't regret it at all

Having shopped around quite a lot before enrolling at PremierTEFL, I wanted to be sure I could trust the provider of the course and it was accredited and recognised in Education. I ed three schools in Thailand, Russia and Honk Kong, they all accepted Premier TEFL. Now that i’ve completed the course I can safely say I got fantastic value.
I’m currently traveling around Europe, and hoping to find a country I would like to teach. Wherever I end up, i’m sure i’ve now got the skills to become a good teacher. I have written this review because Rosanna is such a nice person to deal with and deserves to get credit for her service.

Professionalism and organization are outstanding!

PremierTEFL delivers a challenging, well-rounded training program, together with the support and the resources students need to succeed; Practice teaching real students ( not volunteers) and receiving specific guidance and feedback on my teaching made all of the difference for me. In addition to earning a respected credential, I also came away with the confidence I needed to launch myself as a teacher. I was offered a job in the location of my choice within six weeks of graduating!
I am delighted that I decided to make this life change and that I chose this company to help me get started!

Warsaw is incredible, you have to do it

I have never been so happy in my life! After completing the TEFL expert course I am now working freelance in Warsaw with two language companies and teaching privately. It has provided the foundation for my new career to teach English language.

When applying for a job at a language school you must give a demo lesson and after completing my course I felt that I was able to do this using everything I had learned. The further courses really assisted in my gaining employment so easily.

The course covered all the core principles needed to begin teaching, though I’d recommend ( as the course also does) further research into each topic/ module.
