TEFL Worldwide Prague Reviews
A rewarding experience leading to an array of opportunities
Submitted by Nicholas Ephram Ryan Daniels - Arizona State University | March 20, 2017
I was 24 years old and on my first holiday abroad in Italy and France in 2014, when by the end of my holiday in Paris I began to frantically search for ways on how I could live in this magical land. I didn't want to leave. I stumbled upon TEFL Worldwide Prague and the rest was history. I was of Czech ancestry and now I had the chance to live in my ancestral homeland and Europe, learn Czech, while at the same time learn how to teach English as a foreign language, my favorite subject in school. It was a no-brainer! I was ready for a new challenge and phase in my life.
The application was smooth and easy and I received detailed answers to all of my questions. I even received a phone call from a previous TEFL graduate on how to prepare and be successful in the course. Moving abroad, especially for an American without an EU passport, can be very stressful, daring, and risky. With TEFL Worldwide Prague I did not feel this at all. It was easy-breezy. Upon acceptance into the program I read their information pamphlet religiously and was absolutely prepared with every obstacle that the bureaucracy of Czech immigration could throw at me. Not to mention, TEFL Worldwide has connections with visa agents in Prague who can arrange all of this bureaucratic work for you on your behalf. The only thing you need to worry about is to have all of your ducks in a row before the course starts, the most important document being a notarized bank statement declaring a minimum amount of funds for a Czech visa.
If you don't wish to stay in the Czech Republic, then TEFL Worldwide has connections with language schools all around the world and the school provides networks from TEFL alumni on finding these international positions. One of the most useful things provided by the school for those wishing to stay in the Czech Republic and teach was the Job Fair, when many local language schools come to present and collect CVs, often hiring TEFL graduates on the spot!!! Most TEFL grads are employed within the first week after graduation while others choose to travel around Europe afterwards and start work after their travels. It all depends on you and what you prefer.
As for the course: when you attend, you will see firsthand the extraordinary quality of teacher training at this school. Both Kenny and Adrienne, the main teacher trainers, have about 40 years in combined experience from teaching and it shows in their demo lessons. Kenny has taught all over Europe, including Italy, while Adrienne has taught in Asia, including South Korea. The teacher trainers are completely professional and personable. They are there to help and provide guidance for you to be the best teacher you can be. I advise to take notes on all the grammar presented as there will be a grammar test at the end of the course, before graduation.
It truly feels like the TEFL Worldwide Prague alumni are a family and the amount of assistance provided by the teacher trainers after graduation is unlimited. You can always go back to the office and ask them for assistance or ask the lovely secretary, Tereza, for help on Czech Republic-related issues and questions. There is often an opportunity for you to work at TEFL Worldwide yourself as a language teacher. I had the privilege of teaching two night classes to Czech students on Wednesdays and Thursdays for a half a year and I had a blast doing it.
I can't describe enough how grateful I am for TEFL Worldwide Prague. I wouldn't be here living my dream if it wasn't for them. It is also worth mentioning that I have met some life-long friends from the course who still live here in Prague and whom I am now tied to the hip. And now soon I will be working on my MTESOL degree online to continue being a better foreign language teacher and I have received help from TEFL Worldwide to procure a recommendation for my MTESOL program. They are truly always here to help YOU. You will also find there is a sense of pride with your TEFL class. When you meet TEFL grads of previous courses or new graduates, there will be friendly debate of whose class was the best. That is a sign of true quality at this school, when its graduates are proud of their own classes that they are associated with! Long live TEFL Worldwide Prague! A rewarding experience! A memory of a lifetime and friends and family for life!

I made the course on 2010. It is a really great experience if you're looking to get your certificate in a real, no-time wasting way; they focus on the really important things, they have great teachers and also, they help you through the entire process, from finding a place, stores, taking the metro to getting a job and interviews. Also, they help you after the course in case you need recommendation letters, job guidance, etc. It´s really worth it. For me, it's been great having my certificate since I can look for better paid jobs. Also, it´s quick and affordable.

Getting my TEFL certificate at TEFL Worldwide was an amazing experience. It was incredibly intense and we were really thrown in at the deep end as we were expected to teach in our first week but by the end of the course I felt completely and utterly ready to teach in the real world. Kenny and Adrienne are absolutely incredible teachers and were always there to support us all during our time at TEFL Worldwide. I made lots of fabulous friends and had a job set up within 3 days of finishing the course. I've now been living in Prague for 3 months and have learned a huge amount about the art of teaching English as a foreign language and also about myself as a person. I feel confident that I could teach in any country thanks to all the knowledge I gained from everyone at the school during my time there. If you're looking for a new challenge I would highly recommend heading over to Prague and taking part in the TEFL Worldwide experience - you won't regret it.
I can't recommend TEFL Worldwide highly enough

From the beginning through to graduation and beyond, TEFL Worldwide have been nothing but incredibly helpful. I decided very last minute to enrol on the course, and although the website itself is very informative, both Cheryl and Emily were more than happy to answer any questions I had. Helping to make my decision an easy one.
The course itself is by no means easy and is at times extremely intense (queue quite a few late nights and pivo to help you through!). However, it has been designed to prepare you for all aspects of being a teacher and maintains a very high standard. TEFL Worldwide provide you with much more than just the knowledge and skills to become a great teacher. They prepare you for life in Prague by providing Czech lessons, helping with housing and also preparing you for the job interview process. They also offer lifelong job assistance in not just Europe but Worldwide, with schools often selecting students purely from TEFL Worldwide because of the high standard.
The staff are always on hand and happy to help with anything, from questions about the course to the recommendation of a good cocktail bar! Special mention to Alyssa, Tereza, Mai and Ly.
Kenny and Adrienne, the teacher trainers are nothing short of fantastic. They are both extremely hard working, enthusiastic and determined to see you succeed. Both are always on hand to help with any questions you may have and to keep you motivated. The teacher observers, Emily, Zach and Gywnnie provide you with positive and constructive feedback and ideas of how to improve your teaching techniques. All of the staff leave you feeling supported during the whole process.
I successfully graduated in September this year and celebrated in style with not only my classmates and teachers, but alongside other TEFL Worldwide alumni. Showing that the school maintains good relationships with its graduates and feels more like one big TEFL family. After attending the job fair and graduation on the Friday, I had a job interview the following Monday and by Tuesday had already been hired by a language school. From start to finish, I was teaching within 5 weeks. I cannot thank TEFL Worldwide enough for helping me enter into a new career successfully, making a group of friends for life and helping to make my experience in Prague that much better.
