Great course !

Nothing negative to say ! The instructors were great. The course's content was in my opinion appropriate, and covered everything I expected. It's a lot of work but definitely achievable.
And in addition to that, Prague is a really nice city.

In short, I completely recommend !

Amazing!

This was a great experience and one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life. The school admin keep you well informed and help you out as much as possible. The teachers, Kenny and Adrienne are amazing instructors. There were times I wanted to cry and quit, but they kept me going along with my classmates. Most of us had no prior knowledge of teaching and everyone was very supportive.
If you are looking for a life changing decision, something new and you want to travel the world... this is a great place to start.

TEFLWorldWide rules!

This school is the real deal. The instructors have many years of experience in teaching English as a foreign language and in teacher training. If you are not feeling confident teaching English when you arrive, you definitely will be by the time your month long course is over. The instructors are very knowledgeable and offer loads of constructive feedback after lessons. If you are serious teaching English as a foreign language and you're willing to put in the work, this course is for you.

The staff is very helpful and they genuinely care the trainees. They give trainees a lot of information before they arrive and if you have questions they will leave none unanswered. During the course trainees are guided through the process of securing visas and exposed to local employers at a job fair. The people at TEFLWorldwide care their alumni as well, keeping in touch with them on social media and email.

One of my better life decisions

I found TEFL Worldwide by perusing Google, and I'm very glad I took the time to find the highest rated TEFL course I could. The certification course is demanding, but well worth the effort. Kenny and Adrienne, the two head teachers, are among the best teachers I've ever had in my life for any subject, and they prepared me well for teaching English in Prague. The support staff at TEFL Worldwide was equally excellent, and offered help and guidance whenever I needed it, even after completion of the course. I couldn't recommend TEFL Worldwide enough; they provided me with the comprehension, knowledge, and skills to become a successful English teacher.

TEFL Worldwide Prague is outstanding!

I took the TEFL course in March/April 2017 of 2017. Like almost everyone in our class, I had no previous teaching experience and was pretty nervous the whole thing going into it.

Let me start off by saying that I know what you're thinking while you go over these reviews. I too thought to myself, "There has to be a catch" and "These seem too good to be true" but after taking the course I can honestly say they are 100% justified.

Kenny and Adrienne are awesome instructors and are extremely generous with their time and knowledge and are very dedicated to seeing their students succeed. They provide a great balance of wisdom, advice, encouragement, support, and constructive criticism that both push and allow the students to become the best teachers they can possibly be.

As others have noted, the course itself is pretty intensive and very difficult (you start teaching on the 2nd day), but as crazy as it may seem at the time, everything is very well organized, and has the clear and stated purpose of preparing you for any and all scenarios you may encounter once you get out on your own.

The admin. staff is also awesome helping out with stuff like housing arrangements, showing us around the nearby mall, fixing the coffee maker, answering visa questions, and, if you're lucky, saving you a few hours by helping you find a topic for your grammar presentation.

In short, if you're thinking taking a TEFL course in Prague (or anywhere for that matter), I cannot recommend this program enough.

Great school!

Taking this course was a great experience. I made long lasting friendships and learned everything I needed to know in order to become a TEFL teacher. The course was very intensive and involved everything from learning the fundamental basics of phonetics and making lesson plans, to teaching actual classes and having a one-on-one tutoring session with a student. After graduating from the course I quickly found a job teaching English and was able to fulfill my dream of living in Europe. Prague is a beautiful city, so it made a wonderful backdrop for the course. From what I learned talking to students who took courses at other schools, I firmly believe I made the right decision in choosing this school, and came out more fully prepared to embark on the adventure of teaching than I would have elsewhere.

Highly recommend

I took this certificate course in spring 2015 and I’m really glad I did. It was the first time traveling abroad on my own so I was quite nervous the whole situation. It’s a small school but you really get the most out of it. There are 24 student-teachers at the start of every program and they’re split into two classes. You’ll also be assigned to a group of three. You’ll start teaching actual ESL learners on day 2 and will continue teaching an assigned topic every other day. This might sound hard, but every part of the program is designed to teach you everything you need to know in order to prepare and deliver a lesson. I initially thought their library was small until I realized that they had more resources than I needed to plan my lessons. In the morning, you’ll be the student and receive instruction on teaching. In the afternoon, you’ll be the teacher for local adult students (mostly adults from all different backgrounds and levels). You’ll get to observe and offer feedback to the student-teachers who are both in your group and outside of your group. You’ll also be observed by one of the instructors during each of your lessons and at the end of the lesson, they will provide you with the most comprehensive feedback (along with a pass/fail grade) both in person and on paper. Every staff member is super friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. The program is intense, so be prepared to work hard. The instructors are all really good at what they do. Not only are they experienced, but they have a way of teaching you content that is enjoyable and relatable. At the end of the course, you’ll be surprised at how much you’ve learned and accomplished. I definitely gained much more than I expected.
If you’re planning to apply to this course, I’d also suggest to arrive a week or so earlier to explore the city and get adjusted to the time zone. You can also explore the city on the weekends, but there are just so many places to visit.

A rewarding experience leading to an array of opportunities

I was 24 years old and on my first holiday abroad in Italy and France in 2014, when by the end of my holiday in Paris I began to frantically search for ways on how I could live in this magical land. I didn't want to leave. I stumbled upon TEFL Worldwide Prague and the rest was history. I was of Czech ancestry and now I had the chance to live in my ancestral homeland and Europe, learn Czech, while at the same time learn how to teach English as a foreign language, my favorite subject in school. It was a no-brainer! I was ready for a new challenge and phase in my life.
The application was smooth and easy and I received detailed answers to all of my questions. I even received a phone call from a previous TEFL graduate on how to prepare and be successful in the course. Moving abroad, especially for an American without an EU passport, can be very stressful, daring, and risky. With TEFL Worldwide Prague I did not feel this at all. It was easy-breezy. Upon acceptance into the program I read their information pamphlet religiously and was absolutely prepared with every obstacle that the bureaucracy of Czech immigration could throw at me. Not to mention, TEFL Worldwide has connections with visa agents in Prague who can arrange all of this bureaucratic work for you on your behalf. The only thing you need to worry is to have all of your ducks in a row before the course starts, the most important document being a notarized bank statement declaring a minimum amount of funds for a Czech visa.
If you don't wish to stay in the Czech Republic, then TEFL Worldwide has connections with language schools all around the world and the school provides networks from TEFL alumni on finding these international positions. One of the most useful things provided by the school for those wishing to stay in the Czech Republic and teach was the Job Fair, when many local language schools come to present and collect CVs, often hiring TEFL graduates on the spot!!! Most TEFL grads are employed within the first week after graduation while others choose to travel around Europe afterwards and start work after their travels. It all depends on you and what you prefer.
As for the course: when you attend, you will see firsthand the extraordinary quality of teacher training at this school. Both Kenny and Adrienne, the main teacher trainers, have 40 years in combined experience from teaching and it shows in their demo lessons. Kenny has taught all over Europe, including Italy, while Adrienne has taught in Asia, including South Korea. The teacher trainers are completely professional and personable. They are there to help and provide guidance for you to be the best teacher you can be. I advise to take notes on all the grammar presented as there will be a grammar test at the end of the course, before graduation.
It truly feels like the TEFL Worldwide Prague alumni are a family and the amount of assistance provided by the teacher trainers after graduation is unlimited. You can always go back to the office and ask them for assistance or ask the lovely secretary, Tereza, for help on Czech Republic-related issues and questions. There is often an opportunity for you to work at TEFL Worldwide yourself as a language teacher. I had the privilege of teaching two night classes to Czech students on Wednesdays and Thursdays for a half a year and I had a blast doing it.
I can't describe enough how grateful I am for TEFL Worldwide Prague. I wouldn't be here living my dream if it wasn't for them. It is also worth mentioning that I have met some life-long friends from the course who still live here in Prague and whom I am now tied to the hip. And now soon I will be working on my MTESOL degree online to continue being a better foreign language teacher and I have received help from TEFL Worldwide to procure a recommendation for my MTESOL program. They are truly always here to help YOU. You will also find there is a sense of pride with your TEFL class. When you meet TEFL grads of previous courses or new graduates, there will be friendly debate of whose class was the best. That is a sign of true quality at this school, when its graduates are proud of their own classes that they are associated with! Long live TEFL Worldwide Prague! A rewarding experience! A memory of a lifetime and friends and family for life!

TEFL course

I made the course on 2010. It is a really great experience if you're looking to get your certificate in a real, no-time wasting way; they focus on the really important things, they have great teachers and also, they help you through the entire process, from finding a place, stores, taking the metro to getting a job and interviews. Also, they help you after the course in case you need recommendation letters, job guidance, etc. It´s really worth it. For me, it's been great having my certificate since I can look for better paid jobs. Also, it´s quick and affordable.

I can't recommend TEFL Worldwide highly enough

From the beginning through to graduation and beyond, TEFL Worldwide have been nothing but incredibly helpful. I decided very last minute to enrol on the course, and although the website itself is very informative, both Cheryl and Emily were more than happy to answer any questions I had. Helping to make my decision an easy one.

The course itself is by no means easy and is at times extremely intense (queue quite a few late nights and pivo to help you through!). However, it has been designed to prepare you for all aspects of being a teacher and maintains a very high standard. TEFL Worldwide provide you with much more than just the knowledge and skills to become a great teacher. They prepare you for life in Prague by providing Czech lessons, helping with housing and also preparing you for the job interview process. They also offer lifelong job assistance in not just Europe but Worldwide, with schools often selecting students purely from TEFL Worldwide because of the high standard.

The staff are always on hand and happy to help with anything, from questions the course to the recommendation of a good cocktail bar! Special mention to Alyssa, Tereza, Mai and Ly.
Kenny and Adrienne, the teacher trainers are nothing short of fantastic. They are both extremely hard working, enthusiastic and determined to see you succeed. Both are always on hand to help with any questions you may have and to keep you motivated. The teacher observers, Emily, Zach and Gywnnie provide you with positive and constructive feedback and ideas of how to improve your teaching techniques. All of the staff leave you feeling supported during the whole process.

I successfully graduated in September this year and celebrated in style with not only my classmates and teachers, but alongside other TEFL Worldwide alumni. Showing that the school maintains good relationships with its graduates and feels more like one big TEFL family. After attending the job fair and graduation on the Friday, I had a job interview the following Monday and by Tuesday had already been hired by a language school. From start to finish, I was teaching within 5 weeks. I cannot thank TEFL Worldwide enough for helping me enter into a new career successfully, making a group of friends for life and helping to make my experience in Prague that much better.

Incredibly valuable TEFL course

TEFL Worldwide Prague provided me with literally everything you need to live a successful expat, English teacher life in Prague (or anywhere around the world). The two instructors, Kenny and Adrienne, provided me with the necessary skills and experience to be a top-notch English teacher. Their energy, expertise, and curriculum were beyond any expectations I had. Not only was their instruction valuable, but their mentorship has continued through the almost four months I have been living and teaching in Prague. I've honestly never had a more valuable learning experience.

The TEFL Worldwide Prague staff provide assistance with every aspect of setting up your life in Prague. The staff are incredibly friendly (now good friends of mine), and very experienced. They helped me find a flat, sort my visa, and find a job (four, actually). TEFL Worldwide has you covered!

The network of TEFL Worldwide is extensive and far-reaching. The staff has the information for every alumni of the course, and can put you in with any of these alumni wherever they are in the world. Their network literally extends to every corner of the globe. Every alum I have met so far has been incredibly friendly and helpful - many of them have become my family here in Prague.

I'd recommend this course to anybody and everybody interested in teaching abroad.

The best choice

I completed the TEFL program in October and I had a phenomenal experience. The instructors and staff go above and beyond for the needs of their students.
I actually feel that the instructors, (which were Kenny and Adrienne) were over worked. I can honestly say that they were the best educators I have ever had and the knowledge that they gave me I will use throughout my life.
Before taking this course, I taught at a preschool for 6 years. With that being said, this 4 week course taught me invaluable skills that I can bring straight to the classroom (in the US and abroad)
There is no wasted time in this program. No 'busy work'. Everything the instructors say and assign are apart of a bigger picture.
I will not lie and say this course is 'easy' it's the most intensive course I've ever completed. All nighters are inevitable but totally worth it!

Hard work, great experience

I really enjoyed my time learning at TEFL Worldwide Prague. The teachers, especially Kenny and Adrienne, were fantastic. I'm happy I chose this program to earn my TEFL certificate.
This program is NOT for people who don't want to work hard. They will do everything they can to help you be successful, but you don't get a certificate for just showing up. It was not unusual for my classmates and myself to be hard and work all day and late into the night (some, I'm pretty sure, did not sleep). However, I was still able to enjoy living in Prague and got to see a lot of the city. This program is a commitment, but if you are willing to work hard it really pays off.
My only criticism (more of a suggestion really) is that week two of the program be split into two weeks, making the program five weeks instead of four. Now, this will probably never happen, because that would mean less classes a year, less money blah blah blah... but I will warn all future students that week two is brutal! Just don't plan to do anything but work that week. That being said, I would go through this program again and I am very happy with the results.

Comprehensive and engaging TEFL program

I completed my TEFL certificate course during the spring of 2015 and can truly say it changed my life. It was one of the best and most courageous steps I've taken in my professional life.

TEFL Worldwide Prague was an amazing program to start this journey with. I've felt supported by the teachers and administration through my whole teaching journey and really appreciate the help that they provide to alumni. It shows great follow-through and commitment on their part.

I felt that for a month long course I got so much education and confidence out of it. I felt well prepared to enter the classroom as a teacher on my own and especially had developed skills of curriculum development. I absolutely recommend this program and would do it again in a heartbeat. I've recommended it to my own closest friends and family as well.

Life changing adventure

I am so proud to tell people I am a graduate of TEFL Worldwide Prague. This program was everything I had hoped it would be and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
The entire staff is phenomenal. From the application to the graduation, they help you every step of the way with adjusting to the culture, learning some basic Czech, and-of course-preparing you to be an English teacher. You couldn't ask for a higher quality curriculum. I learned so much grammar, pronunciation, and teaching over just 4 weeks. When I graduated, I truly felt confident going into job interviews and presenting my skills. Not to mention, just 72 hours after graduating, I had 6 interviews lined up with 6 very competitive job offers (and several additional schools and companies asking me to apply.) Every single interviewer said they wanted to hire graduates from this program. It is challenging for sure, but it does everything you need to be ready for the adventure of teaching English abroad. It's been absolutely life changing and I am so grateful to have found TEFL Worldwide Prague!

There's a lot to take in, in four weeks. The work is constant, and teaching can be somewhat scary BUT the reward, the support, the information are all there. It was an amazing time. One I won't soon forget.

TEFL Worldwide Prague

I took the TEFL course in July 2016 and it was an extremely rewarding experience. The instructors and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and supportive. I met some really amazing people during my time here and although it was definitely tough, it was worth it. We were thrown right into it and began teaching real students just a few days into the course. The course definitely gave us all the tools necessary to teach English learners of all levels. Although I didn't have previous teaching experience, since completing the course, I feel comfortable and ready to teach. I'm grateful for all the opportunities that this certificate opens for me and I can't wait to get out there teach around the world. Plus, Prague is a beautiful city so if you have a chance to come here and take the course, do it!

Experience of a lifetime

Last year I finished my Bachelors degree in Science. After 4 long years of studying I was exhausted and in need of a change. I took a chance and applied at TEFL WorldWide Prague. I have to say that this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Not only did I grow professionally learning extremely useful skills for teaching but personally as well. This experience taught me that I could succeed even in a foreign country. My confidence after this course has flourished. The instructors and administration staff are amazing. They are always there to help at EVERY step of the way. Even after the course, they provide you with numerous s which is a definite help when you are looking for a job abroad. After the course, I moved to Poland and taught in a small town of Kielce. Every school I was interviewed at would immediately compliment my proper training skills and I would hear "Wow, they really must have trained you well for someone with no prior teaching experience". So I can truly say that my experience was a success and I was able to accomplish everything I had set out to do. Best investment I have made up to this day and the people I met during this course were amazing. I would like to thank the staff and fellow students that made me feel at home in Prague. Cheers!

My European experience

My Experience overall with the course was really great especially coming from so far to enter a new country for the first time was nerve wrecking. With the help of the team they were very assisting and helpful through my entire journey. The Course overall from the teaching to the practicing to getting assistance with the job after receiving the certificate was really great. My experience overall was amazing.I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in receiving a TEFL Certificate and if i had to do this program all over again i would be happy to do this wonderful experience.

Best class I've ever taken

I took the TEFL Worldwide Prague course in summer 2015, and I have taught in Taiwan and now teach English in Tokyo. Learning how to teach English at TEFL Worldwide Prague was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The program was extremely well-organized, engaging, and the things I learned are vital to teaching in a real-world setting. The trainers are funny, smart, caring and push you to do your very best. I still keep in with the staff and they genuinely care helping you be a successful, happy teacher. They're never too busy to respond to my questions or requests, and I feel like they truly love their job. This program was at times very challenging, because there was an intense amount of work required, but there were no frivolous moments. Every piece of information provided, and all of the practice teaching real students was necessary to training how to teach in a real-world setting. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to teach English, and Prague is the most magical city to experience this course.

Utterly rewarding experience

This was probably the hardest but most rewarding 4 weeks of my life. This course pushes and challenges you in every way but its totally worth it. You're thrown in right at the deep end a lot is expected of you. However Kenny, Adrienne, Emily and Andrew provide you with all the knowledge, support and tools you need to help you achieve all you're capable of - can't thank them enough and emphasise how brilliant they are. Equal thanks go to the admin staff, who go out of their way to help you with housing, visas for those who need, general calming down if - or when - you're freaking out, and anything else you might need.
In all, the four weeks of ridiculously hard work pays off - just listening to the experiences of other graduates makes you realise how many opportunities are open to you once you take this course. I only graduated a week a go and have already had multiple interviews and job offers. If you want a challenge, to take yourself out of your comfort zone and to travel then DO IT - you'll be doing so in an environment with all the support you need and surrounded by a group of like-minded individuals who are all in the same boat as you!
