United Kingdom TEFL Course Reviews

If you have ever taken a TEFL course in the UK and would like to add a review, write about your experience or share any recommendations write an article for our website.

"While juggling a degree, a TEFL qualification, and almost full time hours in the coffee shop I went a little bit mental but to say it was 100% worth is feels like an understatement. I finished the course at the start of June and by the end of June I had my first job. I was lucky, very lucky, to find a TEFL company in the UK who needed to hire, and were happy to take on a first time teacher. I spent summer working in my university town teaching 3 hours a day and earning almost double what I was getting at the coffee shop."  - Emma Lander, UK
