I completed the 120 hour advanced TEFL course and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. I was a little hesitant before buying the course as I wasn't sure what it would be like to do this entirely online and how high the standard of teaching would be, but all of my concerns were totally unnecessary. I really enjoyed myself and my passion for teaching was reignited! I would encourage anyone who is considering the course to do it! I managed to complete it in 3 weeks and I don't at all feel like the course was rushed or dragged out. I'm very happy with my decision to go with PremierTEFL!

Really pleased with the quality of the material. I did 3 top-up courses with Premier TEFL and wish I had done the main TEFL course with them also. They also offer a wealth of free additional materials and regular free webinars. Well done! Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed taking the 120-Hour Advanced TEFL course with Premier TEFL. I found that the course was interesting and it used a variety of material to keep the learner engaged. It was broken down into appropriate lessons (there are a total of 10 if I remember correctly). Each lesson is different and it covers a lot of information. It was very organized. I also appreciated that they included videos of real-life examples of teaching english as a second language in a classroom. They provide you with valuable resources too to supplement your learning (e.g. teaching grammar, lesson planning guide) free of charge. Lastly, they also provide you with very helpful resources to continue your learning (webinars, coursebooks for teaching).In addition to the material, I took the course at a time when they were offering a free 30-hour online teaching course. This was helpful because I was more interested in teaching online instead of abroad. They have other specialty courses depending on your interest.If you are looking to teach english abroad, I highly recommend looking into courses with Premier TEFL. They have different programs to help students work in whichever part of the world they are interested in.Along with the material, they also offer a referral letter once you successfully complete the course which outlines what you accomplished in the course and your overall course grade based on your quiz scores for each lesson. This is helpful when you start to look for jobs.
