Learning to teach
Submitted by Jacob Warn - Bristol England | October 21, 2016
This month long course opened my eyes to the methods of great teaching.
OxfordTEFL offer fantastic tutor-trainee ratios, meaning the feedback and personal attention received is superb. The school is spacious, modern, and has all the equipment you could ask for.
I heartily recommend it if you're considering studying for a TEFL abroad. The Trinity CertTESOL is without doubt fantastically informative, formative and practical.
My experience with Oxford TEFL Prague
Submitted by Monika | October 13, 2016
Attending the course in Oxford TEFL Prague was the best decision. The tutors were really supportive and their feedback was very helpful. Every time we needed help, they were there for us. I really enjoyed the input sessions which were interesting, especially phonology. Everything was well organized and I had a great time. I didn’t expect it to be so intensive, but it was definitely worth it. Time flies really fast, when you are really busy, so it felt that I’d done the course in the blink of an eye!
Great start and informative information to get your self started in teaching English

I enjoyed the modules and the reading, as a lot of the content are up to date with current articles and teaching strategies that help me understand more about teaching English. The online course provides an abundant of resources that helps with the learning and understanding of what it takes to teach English. The assignments reflects what was taught and the one-on-one skype meetings and feedback really did help open my eyes to what I can do to improve and enhance my awareness to become a better teacher. I also like the fact that from each lesson after the next gives a better understanding of the previous lessons and in the end the accumulation of all the lessons prepares you for the final assignment after each module.

Thank you for your comments and review. You have reviewed the Online TEFL Starter course (not the Trinity CertTESOL course in Barcelona as has been indicated here). We hope to see you on the full course in Barcelona at some point in the future!
Oxford TEFL Barcelona

I went into this course already having teaching experience (studied elementary and special education), but no training in teaching English. For me, it was absolutely worth it. The course is very intensive but extremely practical. You begin teaching on day 2, but with supervision and hands-on support of your own tutor and any of the other tutors supporting during the daily lesson planning hour. I loved being able to apply the methods taught in input sessions right away in teaching practice. The speed is exhausting and you never feel like you have quite enough time to process and practice, but at the same time you grow so much in a month and gain a ton of confidence. There was some busywork involved, mainly the learner profile assignment, which seemed unnecessarily long, but in general the written output required is purposeful. We all switched teaching practice classes midway through the course - an added challenge, but really useful to practice teaching a different level. Overall highly recommended!
Intense but amazing
Submitted by Zibby - Barcelona Spain | September 29, 2016
I just finished the Cert TESOL course... It was a lot of work in a very short amount of time, however I feel like I am prepared to find a job and start teaching right away. You will start teaching classes during the course, so you get hands on, real world experience from Day 1. There is A LOT of busy work, but it is mostly useful and keeps your mind thinking about teaching and how to improve.
You will form amazing friendships - you spend a lot of time with the people in your class. And the support from Oxford House is wonderful! All of the tutors are knowledgeable and eager to help. The career support is lifelong and worldwide. Overall, a great program, just be prepared to put in long hours and remember that it only lasts for one month!
