The quality of everything provided by Global English truly blew me away. All contact was personalised and always accurate(it was amazing just how much relevant information everyone at Global English knew about me, from personal interests to current goals/plans), and I would always finish reading everything from GE with a huge smile on my face. The course was brilliantly thorough and informative without overloading me with unnecessary information.
- Tatiana Parshina
The module 5 was really interesting and useful. Once again an amazingly clear helpful, well thought out study booklet. I have used some ideas from it with my students.
- Rosemary Edney
Great clarity: the reader knows what is being presented, why, and what is expected from them, and where they are in relation to everything else in the course. The course contains super visual reinforcement of concepts through YouTube videos that are normally real 'live' teaching situations. There is continual encouragement for 'Further Research' for those wishing to go a bit deeper / build up their teaching material/examples, as well as many original teaching ideas.

  • Highly recommend using TEFL Source if you want to get certified to teach English as a foreign language. I'm currently travelling in SE Asia so I wanted a course that I could work on from my ipad. TEFL Source had lots of great options and the prices were more competitive than other places I looked. I can't wait to start teaching now!Jon Sobolewski
  • I stumbled upon TEFL Source while I was researching the EPIK teaching program in South Korea. I didn't realize there were so many course types and companies out there. TEFL Source made it easy to browse through the different programs, although many aspects of the programs are comparable, and find a suitable course that included teaching practice. I'd tell you I'd use them again but I doubt I'll need another TEFL certification. All in all, a happy customer. Jenny Bae
  • So far so good! Enrolled in a 120hr course last week and already completed the first 2 modules. Kudos to the TEFL Source staff for walking me through the different options and taking the time to explain what I needed, and what I didn't for that matter, in order to teach over in Korea.Rhea Csergei
