ICAL TEFL Reviews
This course exceeded my expectations

My intention to follow this ESL-course was in the first place to learn some techniques to teach English as a foreign language. The different modules in the course covered all aspects of teaching. The theory was to the point, featuring a lot of practical examples. The assignments were a very important part of the course. To be able to answer the questions, a lot of research on the internet was needed. This research led to the discovery of so many interesting websites and a lot of information for preparing future lessons English. Now, after having completed this course, I can say that my expectations have fully been met.
ICAL TEFL, a successful course!

I took the ICAL TEFL online course to gain an additional tool to help support myself abroad and also as a refresher to my existing English skills. The course outline, modules and support from my mentor 'Scott' were right on target, very helpful, clear and to the point.
Having no prior teaching experience, the ICAL TEFL course not only gave me good exposure to what being a TEFL teacher entails but also what I need to brush up on to be effective in that role.
The module assignments were challenging and the assignment critique by 'Scott' was always very informative and helped to further focus my efforts.
I would highly recommend the ICAL TEFL online course, it's well structured and the support by ICAL and the mentor is superb.
Better late than never....

I took the ICAL course to enhance my employment efforts in retirement.
Although I have a degree in languages and have 'translated' and 'reported' all my working life, I needed a specific teaching qualification.
Here in Switzerland where I now live, there is a demand among the four native language-speaking communities for English as a foreign language, and I will be able to use my ICAL qualification to develop my business as an English tutor-coach.
I thought I knew my mother tongue very well and that I would not have too much to learn on the ICAL course. I was wrong!! ICAL provided me with a system of student needs analysis, curriculum planning and adaptation, lesson planning and structuring and lots of useful guidance on how to be an effective and successful teacher in the classroom. My tutor was always available and ready to handle my 'senior citizen' foibles patiently and instructively.
I can honestly say that I was favourably surprised by, and fully satisfied with, the ICAL approach and course content and would have no hesitation in recommending ICAL to any prospective teacher of English as a foreign language.
Thank you ICAL for a job well done!!

It was a fun, interesting, and eye opening experience. I was surprised to learn that the material not only consist of English specific material, but also subjects that go into detail about language psychology and linguistics. The entire course was a pleasure, and my very wise professor was great help. I also was thankful for the fact that I was not rushed and that the certification course fit well into my busy life.
I recommend to anyone who is passionate about teaching others wanting to understand the foundation of teaching strategies.
A very inspiring course !

I actually only started the course because I needed the certificate, but it turned out to be a very interesting experience and I have learned a lot. The course is quite demanding, but very clear, simple, helpful and inspiring. You can really count on the tutors and the administrators to answer all of your questions. You get fast and detailed feedback positive and negative, and many tips to improve your teaching. This is a devoted team, helping you to become a better teacher! I loved working on the course.
