Frontier

Currently two weeks into the teaching project in Siem Reap and I'm having an amazing time. The local people are so friendly and the other volunteers are also great. I feel like
I really have value at the school and helping children learn English is super rewarding. I can't wait for the rest of my time here.

I have found the project extremely enjoyable. I have learnt a lot from teaching the Khmer children English. Improving the children's English skills is important in enabling them to get jobs.

Sankalp Volunteer Society India

ITS REALLY FRAUD. CHARGES IS TOO HIGH IN COMPARING TO OTHER NGO. THEY PROVIDE BAD SERVICE. THEY CAN'T UNDERSTAND THE ENGLISH IN PROPER WAYS.. THAT REASON I CAN'T EXPLAIN EVERYTHING.

PICKUP CHARGE IS VERY VERY HIGH
PROGRAM FEES IS VERY VERY HIGH
SERVICES IS ZERO QUALITY

THEY SHOULD BE INCLUDE THE MORE SERVICES IN THIS CHARGE.

REALLY VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED FROM THIS.

Island TEFL Thailand

My advice is to avoid Island TEFL at all costs. The TEFL certification course falls well short of the 120 hours advertised and has almost no real Thai students to practice on. You will be disappointed. The standard of teaching is poor too. The placement programs are also complete rip-offs. You pay about $500 or even more for just a few days of cultural orientation. Meanwhile, there are loads of placement agencies who give orientation courses for free, because they get payment direct from the school that hires you. Philip Dunne is the guy who runs the courses, and he specialises in insulting and threatening people who give him any kind of problem. Philip Dunne also runs Camp Thailand using the name Philip Roy Crabb. Philip Crabb and Philip Dunne are the same person, and the TEFL courses offered by Camp Thailand are the Island TEFL ones. Court is still out on the actual camp experience for Thai students, but definitely avoid the TEFL courses and placement programs.

Oxford TEFL

After doing some extensive research I chose to study at Oxford TEFL Prague, learning that it’s the only accredited course in Prague that offers Trinity Certificate in TESOL. (Trinity TESOL qualifications are widely recognized by employers around the world.) When I made the decision to become a certified English teacher, I was excited but mostly nervous. Even though I’ve been using English a great portion of my life, being a non-native speaker a part of me felt that I wasn’t the most appropriate person to be instructing English. In addition, I had doubts that a four-week course could genuinely help someone become a “well-rounded” teacher. To my great relief, Oxford TEFL Prague, with it’s highly qualified trainers and cozy atmosphere, helped me release all my anxieties and ease into the process of becoming a language instructor. The course was very intense, but it prepared me well. I’ve gained insights into many different teaching tools and methodologies and I had plenty of opportunity for hands-on teaching practice with real students. I went into the course feeling insecure but came out a confident and self-sufficient certified English teacher. Within a few weeks of graduation I received several job offers, and currently I’m working at different language schools, teaching students of varying ages and levels, and I love it. Oxford TEFL Prague is the best! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to get a TESOL/TEFL certificate.

Cultural Embrace

I was passionate to work in a developing country to help students learn English, the language that connects us all. The staff at API were equally passionate about helping me get to Vietnam and embark on the adventure that would change my life. I immediately fell in love with my students and the people in Vinh. The country has become my second home, and API made the connection between me and this wonderful place.

Language House TEFL - Prague

If you're interested in living and teaching abroad and not sure how to get started then this program is the right one for you! I took the TEFL course at the Language House this past May and I couldn't be happier with the opportunity it has given me to be able to live and work in Prague. The course itself was well structured and the staff was very helpful. I was a little nervous about packing everything up and moving to a foreign country where I had never been before but because of the strong network and community the Language House has full of past graduates it was a lot easier to make connections with those inside and outside of the course I completed. If you're looking for an adventure and chance to live abroad, I highly recommend the Language House in Prague!

Language House TEFL - Prague

Choosing to earn my TEFL certificate from The Language House was one of my smartest decisions. Not only was I fully prepared for teaching with 12 hours of teaching practice with real English learners, I was given practicle adivce on how to make it living abroad: visas, appartments, jobs just to name a few things. I couldn't recomend The Language House more.

Language House TEFL - Prague

If I could give someone wanting to teach abroad one piece of advice, it would be to start your journey with TLH in Prague. Without a doubt, I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to take a break from the average and embark on a career teaching English abroad. The month was intensive and at times challenging, but when the month was over I felt more than prepared to take on the TEFL job market. Not only does the Language House prepare you to teach abroad, their staff makes sure that you have all of the tools needed to live and work in the Czech Republic. The staff leaves no questions unanswered and works tirelessly to ensure that they meet whatever needs you might have.
