An amazing experience

I had an amazing time during my four weeks in Prague. By participating in this course I was able to make friends from different countries and experience new cultures. Although the course was very intense, both Martha and Becca were super helpful and made classes fun. I would definitely recommend this course.
Worth every penny!

I had an awesome month with Smaller Earth in Prague. Both Becca and Martha were there to guide us in every step of the way. The course was intense but immensely satisfying in the end. Help is always at your disposal, you just need to ask either of them. Apart from training us and making sure that we get a hell lot of practice before earning the certificate, they gave us a travel card with which we could travel anywhere in the city by public transport, and they also provided us with accommodation which was a life saver. They also treated us to a delicious lunch on the first day of class and on the last day, all of us went to a party with the students in Legenda! I recommend this course by Smaller Earth to anyone who is interested in teaching English and also wants to experience a new culture!

I had an incredible time with Hello Academies. I made some cool friends, but also learned a lot about English and how to teach it! The course is intense as its a lot of material in 4 weeks, but they do a great job supporting you and giving you any help necessary. They also helped with visas, job search, and apartment search. Also, Prague is a beautiful place to do get the TEFL in!
Huge learning curve, highly enjoyable with amazing people

Taking this course will improve your life immensely, you open loads of opportunities and get to work with many awesome people. Hello Academies has a family feel to it and is located near Namesti Miru which is one of the best areas to be in Prague. I still reminisce about it several months later - it's hard work but extremely rewarding as you learn extremely quickly; Martha's experience and knowledge will be your guiding hand during the four weeks. It's a period of my life that I deeply enjoyed a look back upon with fond memories.

I did my TEFL certification in January 2017 and felt the experience was useful and fairly challenging. The instructor was very competent and knowledgeable and I found everyone running the program to be patient and very helpful. I wouldn't do this program if you are looking to party and make a bunch of friends. It takes up most of your time most days and is a fair amount of paperwork and preparation. However, it is useful as a way into the job market in Prague and establishes you in a good network of people for anything from housing, to advice on where to go/what to do, to finding English speaking doctors. I would recommend this program for people if they know they can put in some hard work and want to invest in staying in Prague for a while.
