In just four short weeks, I have learned how to teach English to students from all over the world- wow! I have really enjoyed teaching English to a classroom of adult Italian students as well as having the opportunity to further develop my skills as a private teacher. Overall, I feel that this course has been a very illuminating experience in terms of observing my strengths and weaknesses as a teacher and giving me the opportunity to reflect on my personal development in general. I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in this TEFL course in Italy ~ thank you!

This course challenges you in ways that push your limits and force you to become a better teacher. The trainers are exceptionally qualified and offer personal feedback to every student. While it is very challenging, you really do learn a lot about TEFL and leave the course feeling prepared to move forward with your career. Grazie mille TEFL-in-Italy!

There are but 2 things in life that after availing of, have led me to doubt “Have I paid enough for this?” One is honey, (all the work that goes into producing just a teaspoon full and here I have this large Jar!) and the TEFL teachers training course. Ah 3 things...coat hangers just came to mind.. (have you ever actually bought one?) but here's my point. This TEFL course is more than your moneys worth. Busy Bee trainers, highly professional, efficient and engaging, the end product being techniques to take home so etched into your brain synapses that you wont…..actually cant forget them evermore. I entered the course a dull dusty boring lecturer of a teacher, with 'set in stone' techniques and unrealistic expectations from students….(sorry S's). Abracadabra, one month later and these horrible habits had been obliterated, sand blasted into sweet tasting and scented teaching styles, remembering amongst many other things to Read, Write, Listen, Speak with S's and Ask, Don't Tell! OK there is the risk of going insane due to the crazy intensity of cramming so much into one month , but none of my class did, probably due to the fact that at least 3 of us were already barking mad (but we did lose one candidate after less than a week due to the stress of it all) so pace yourself for the 'long haul' and not 'economy flight'. The location location location is 3 times a winner and while there are negatives the positives genuinely outweigh all else.

Following the course has improved my teaching significantly. Even though I already have four years of teaching experience, this course still gave me a lot of new knowledge and skills that I can put to good use in the classroom.

Thank you for the help and support over the course, which has put me in a position to find work in Italy. I noticed a huge improvement in my group teaching during the course.

Teaching is what I have been doing for the past three and a half years, but it is not something that I had developed a passion for — until now. Doing this TEFL course in Italy has opened my eyes to the range of benefits, intrigue, and overall satisfaction that can be had from teaching, and it has taught me new things both about myself and about the profession. I have always wanted to travel to Italy, and doing so with the added bonus of improving myself professionally was the best decision I have ever made. It is true what they warn you about: the course is intense. However, the assignments, input sessions, and teaching practice all combine to aide in your development and, in the end, make you a stronger and more confident teacher. Proper time management and great support from fellow trainees and tutors alike guarantees that you will make it through, no matter what. I learned so much on this course, met some of the most amazing people, and have now strengthened myself with a certificate that will keep me moving forward. If I could do it over, I would not change one thing, except for maybe this: I wouldn’t leave. If you’re thinking about a TEFL course, this one is a good one. Just go for it.

Professional tutors. I have learned a lot in one month TEFL training. Brilliant location. As they say at the beginning: cancel all your appointments, forget your family and friends, don't even set appointments with the dentist... you are attending a TEFL training!!!
Christopher Spreigl
UK/Sweden
I found the course well worth my time. The course tutors were professional and I learnt a lot about teaching English. It was a very intensive and exhausting time, but also great fun. The way the school organises students for us to teach worked really well. Even if one doesn't have that much free time to see Rome, the location is very charming

The course is highly intensive, but after having completed it, I feel an enormous sense of achievement. It taught me so much about the importance of time management and how to prioritize. We all experienced a whirlwind of emotions throughout, but worked efficiently. It did help to mould us into stronger people both on a personal and professional level. The tutors we had were very dedicated in helping us succeed. They led by example in showing us what it takes to be a teacher of English. They always gave constructive, honest feedback to the lessons we taught and never failed to encourage and praise us when we showed improvement. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wishes to further their teaching development.

The course is intense, but so fulfilling. The trainers are experienced, available, and friendly. I learned more than I could have ever imagined. Rome is gorgeous and the students you will be teaching are so enthusiastic and supportive of the trainees. Are you at all hesitant? Sign up!!! It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I will never forget my time here.
Faro Maltese
Italy
When they told me the course is intensive, I didn’t seriously know what to expect… I found out when I arrived there: tons of information on subjects I never studied, nights of little sleep to be able to complete the tasks and prepare lessons for the teaching practice… But exactly for this reason it changed me like few other things happened in my life did: it showed me sides I didn’t know about myself, skills I didn’t know I had. There were difficult moments, of course, but I didn’t give up, especially thanks to the tutors: they are there to help you when the pressure is too high. If you will take this course you will not be left alone, and you will get the value that you paid for.

I was certainly one of the more mature students in the course. The training was a great experience. Despite being very intensive it was good value for money and a great opportunity to re-invent yourself and start a new career in your life.The facilities were excellent, the location could not have been better, and most importantly everyone was very friendly, open, and positive. The TEFL course is an effective way of getting a recognized qualification in a very short time. I would recommend it to anyone.
Johane Oliveira

At first, I was very nervous about the course. The tutors were very friendly and open to help you. The first week is where a lot of learning and serious guiding for us takes place. From the second week, you are supposed to do your own lesson plans, and it’s very scary to do. The tutors and other trainees are there to help and assist you.I have to say the amount of work is huge, and yes, it takes a lot of time. The course, it is afull-time thing, but the joy to have the students doing and understanding what you prepared is worth it. At the end, the sense of accomplishment is amazing! I would recommend, for sure, the TELF course in Rome.

The TEFL course had a large amount of source information and tools to become a great teacher. I learned so many things in just one month. It’s very intense, like every short course, but the tutors really helped us and kept motivating every trainee. We all shared beautiful and stressful moments as a big family! The atmosphere within the school is great for learning and teaching. The scenery outside is beautiful and I took walks during my lunch break with the other trainees. I have had a lovely time for my first study abroad experience. Don’t give up and be motivated throughout the course! You’ll be satisfied in the end and you’ll see all your progress!
