I have completed the 168 hour TEFL course from Premier TEFL. The course was challenging, but worth it. Sarah and Sandra provided excellent customer service, and the whole Premier TEFL team was helpful along the way. I am pleased with the course and the service, and I am proud to be a TEFL graduate. I recommend Premier TEFL company to anyone who considers a TEFL career.

The course modules are detailed, informative and easy to comprehend. My experience during the 240 hour Expert TEFL was amazing, I was reminded of what a teacher's role is and how to successfully create a positive learning environment. I learned loads of content in this course and I would love to recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a TEFL certified teacher. However, the only thing I did not like was the fact that upon completion of the course you have multiple certificates, which is not a train smash, but I wish it would just be one certificate for your 240 hour Expert course. Having said that, it's a course work taking, done at your own pace, at the comfort of your home.
