Careers Service

By far the best option

After doing an insane amount of research for a language school to take my TEFL certification, I decided Oxford TEFL was the best option. The deciding factor was the careers and visa support. As an American, I knew that there would be numerous obstacles I would face when applying for a visa. The school was very attentive during this stressful time, and made the visa application process so easy.

Just what the doctor ordered

This course is just what the doctor ordered if you’re considering teaching English as a second language. For a course that’s only 30 hours, it’s jam-packed with a sample of everything offered in the Certificate course. It’s quite challenging, yet I knew my tutor Anna, was only an email away. I know for sure this is something I want to pursue.

A very stimulating experience

Taking this course was a very stimulating experience. It was really practical and efficient in exploring the particularities of teaching Business English and how it differed from General English. It taught me how to make the most of the office environment, to use the student and their knowledge as a resource and how to think on my feet to produce quick and efficient needs analysis for my studets and cater the best solutions to them. I received continuous feedback and support from my tutor and plenty of resources and suggestions regarding teaching materials and teacher development.

Very helpful at Oxford Tefl, especially in regards to the visa support.

Regina was very helpful at Oxford Tefl, especially in regards to the visa support. The visa process is a bit challenging but Regina was always available to me with any questions I had. She was very organized as she explained the details of the visa process. She always followed up with me on any questions or concerns I might have had. She went over my documents personally to make sure I would not have any troubles with the visa process. The support that Regina provided is totally worth it.

The Developing Teacher with Spanish

Regina took me through the process and was able to get the NIE

I was attracted to apply for a course at Oxford Tefl in particular because of the visa support service. I had heard stories on how obtaining an NIE could be a nightmare, more so if you did not speak Spanish. Regina took me through the process and was able to get the NIE within a shortest possible time.She has further complimented my stay with a job through the school’s connection. I am a Developing Teacher and now working within legal stipulated hours for a student. For those coming to Spain to pursue their teaching career and who do not want hurdles, Oxford Tefl is their answer. And to Regina, you have no idea how much you have helped. Thank you!

CELTA

Regina was available both in person and via email

The major hurdle for a non-EU citizen is a lack of clear, coherent information about the steps to get the Student Visa, and being able to do things legally in Spain. The reason why I chose to study at Oxford Tefl was their professionalism, especially the clarity with what the process would be like for a non-EU citizen.
