One of the most exciting and interesting part of the course was video observations. During the online course and face to face sessions we could submit videos of phonology assignments and classroom teachings. It really helped me to save time and experiment with something new.
The Cambridge Exam Classes Teacher development course was great, a very flexible course structure with constant support from the tutor. Excellent for new or experienced teachers, it provided me with new and insightful information and teaching techniques to bring into my exam classes.
It’s been a great experience for me to take the online teaching CLIL course. I really like the in-depth topics covered by the Modules and I have had very practical experience of using the learned knowledge. I also feel the resources that are shared in the course are very helpful. I would definitely recommend others who are either new or have already been in the CLIL field to take this course.
The Teaching Pronunciation course provided me with detailed content about the world of English pronunciation, the teachers are supportive and the feedback was detailed and consistent. This made me feel really involved with the syllabus and also let me be part of a professional TEFL team.
You guys have proven that working towards becoming a better teacher through your Diploma can be exhilarating, liberating and very friendly.
I came in with some experience but, in those 4 weeks, I learned a lot. The facilities were amazing and with a great library and resources to help me prepare the lessons. Both my peers and my tutors were amazing. They were always ready to help and give advice. With every passing lesson, I was gradually becoming a better teacher.
The staff is friendly and helpful, the course teachers are well prepared and approachable, and there’s always someone who can answer questions or give advices about any difficulty a trainee might encounter during the course.
I really enjoyed the course and I could use what I was learning straight away in my classes. The tutor (Claire) is full of great ideas and advice and a great motivator and very empathetic to other work commitments. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting a bit more background for working with young learners.
Everyone working at the school is kind, helpful and funny. You should definitely take advantage of their accommodation services. The hosts that they paired me with were very respectful and fun loving, and the flat was always very clean and quiet.
If you are looking for an experience that you will want to carry with you for the rest of your life, get a really great certificate, and make a ton of new friends…then sign up for this course.
I really enjoyed it, the material to read and to view during the modules were very interesting and the assignment challenging! I would highly recommend your online courses
I would recommend OxfordTefl CLIL course. I picked up a lot of new teaching tips and my tutor Ceri was very helpful and gave excellent feedback on my assignments and during our online discussions.
I thoroughly recommend this online Teaching Business English course offered by OxfordTEFL to all aspiring and professional teachers of English as it contains a great deal of useful and practical information that is crucial for teacher development in this area.
The online webinars and assignments were convenient for me to work in around my busy teaching schedule.
The tutors were supportive and motivating. The face to face was an intense moment full of growth and accomplishment!
If you’re newly qualified or have up to three years of experience, the DTS course is a solid way to improve as a teacher, learn (or relearn) Spanish, and work up to 20 hours/week to support yourself.
I would highly recommend this course, it’s a great opportunity. I have just completed the Online Starter Course and found the website easy to use during each module. I enjoyed the discussions and using the forums. It was informative with useful and interesting content. I feel I have learnt an awful lot.
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.
The Teaching Business English course covered a lot of ground in little time, and many of the concepts and techniques taught would be applicable in every sort of classroom. Both beginning and experienced instructors can expect to find something fresh to keep their teaching lively, relevant, and effective. Recommended.
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.
The course is very well organized, the instructor is helpful and gives wonderful feedback on how you can better your lesson plans to include a pronunciation component. Before this course I lacked the confidence to teach pronunciation and now I know how to explain it and teach it without issues. I’m seeing big improvements in my students pronunciation skills already!
I found the course to be extremely interesting and it really made me think about certain aspects of my work and personality. The more open and honest you are during the course, the more you’ll get out of it. I’d certainly recommend anyone who is already in management or who is thinking of going in to management to do this course.
I really enjoyed completing the young learners course in December 2016. I used many of the resources and ideas it provided with my K3 kids classes and I really noticed a difference in the quality of my lessons.
It was all very interesting and absolutely helpful. Very good material that is used in this online course. Right now, I am testing some of the newly gained ideas in some of my classes.
I have found the Trinity Cert TESOL course to be challenging, engaging and really well developed. I have especially appreciated the very talented tutoring staff.
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.
The introductory course was well received and enabled our teachers to update their skills and knowledge. Oxford TEFL have been highly responsive to our needs; as a result of feedback, one component was significantly rewritten and timings were arranged to suit our faculty needs. They were prepared to run individual, small and large group courses.
The assignments give you an opportunity to apply what you have learnt to EAP settings. Feedback on your assignments comes from an experienced practitioner who will leave you feeling confident in your ability to provide EAP students with the instruction they need.
I would highly recommend the EAP to any teacher as it really makes you look at different ways of improving and utilizing materials.
I would definitely recommend the course to any teachers who are embarking on teaching EAP, as it really crystalises the key concepts, gives you a lot of information and material that you could use, and has very good feedback. AND it’s a quick course, too!
Nice environment – Enriching discussions – A LOT of knowledge gained through reading my colleagues’ comments and discussions. The course was both enjoyable and worthwhile.
I just finished the Oxford TEFL EAP course and was delighted by the organisation, the ease of access, the materials, and the support by Katt Robb the tutor. It was easy to follow, informative, and interesting. I would take another similar course should one arise.
Doing my DIP-TESOL with OxfordTEFL have been a truly invaluable experience, building my personal development. Each tutor is selected specifically to meet the personal needs of of each trainee and we have had the opportunity to work with well known professionals in the field if ELT, experts in their field and always on hand to answer and guide you through the course units.
As a TEFL practitioner with 20+ years experience , the OxfordTEFL TEAP course provided a really useful introduction to the world of EAP. The modules were well thought through, the tasks and activities were appropriate, the discussion board proved to be a lively forum for discussion and the tutorial support provided was excellent.
I found an excellent training facility in Oxford TEFL. The staff were very prompt in sending information and in response to whatever questions that I sent in. My assignments were graded promptly, and I received excellent feedback and guidance along the way. I look forward to training with them in future courses, and I would recommend anyone the courses that Oxford TEFL has to offer.
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.
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!
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.
The OxfordTEFL CLIL course was very informative and useful. I took away many practical ideas and activities that I look forward to using in my classroom. I particularly liked that the tasks were “small” enough to do in 30-minute or 1-hour sessions. It made it really easy to fit into my busy schedule between other obligations.
I would recommend the Training The Trainer course at Oxford TEFL to anyone who wants to gain practical experience and knowledge for becoming a teacher trainer. The facilities at the centre are excellent as are the staff who are very flexible and tailored the course to suit our needs and teaching context. This ensured that we went away with the knowledge that we wanted and needed.
This course helped me to gain a better understanding of EAP and how it differs from teaching General English, and provided practical ideas for exploiting material, using portfolios and developing learners’ skills for their academic life.
This was a very intense course, but I learned a lot, had a lot of fun with potential colleagues and my trainers. I would recommend it to anyone thinking of a TEFL career.
The TEFL in Spain course was a great introduction to teaching English. I feel ready to go into a classroom feeling confident that I can handle any challenge that arises. The trainers are very helpful and supportive, and I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to start a teaching career, especially in Spain.
The course was a good and very useful experience. I really feel like I am able to teach now. The course is very intense, but don’t worry, all trainees feel exactly the same. I made a lot of new friends and met a lot of awesome people here. Great experience and a good qualification to have under your belt.
I found the course to be a very good platform to build on, in terms of my English teaching career. The course is intense, but I was warned beforehand that it would be. I have learned so much and now I feel confident that I can teach students from all backgrounds, with varying needs, the English language. I recommend this course for anyone that is thinking of going into teaching English as a foreign language. Thanks!
Before, after and during my course I was in contact with the Visa and Careers advisor who helped with my CV, got me interviews and guided me through the Visa process. As a non EU citizen herself she really knew what she was doing and everything went pretty smoothly. I now have a job, a visa and the opportunity to travel around Europe. Thanks guys!
The Online TEFL Starter course was simple enough for me to easily get back into a learning mode with the additional advantage of having several different support mechanisms to enable me to read/learn/experience a more in-depth analysis of the programme. I was really encouraged and supported by a knowledgeable tutor who clearly has years of experience in teaching English.
The Teaching Exam Classes course gave me a solid foundation to start teaching exam preparation classes. I had no prior experience of teaching exams and found the thought of having to teach IELTS or FCE quite daunting.
Oxford Tefl’s online Business English course is perfect as an introduction and/or refresh for teachers in this particular field. Having qualified with a celta over five years ago, it was really stimulating to reflect on and revisit best practice.
Exceeded my expectations. The course will help with my development in the classroom. I feel my lesson planning and teaching will improve because of the whole diploma course. I would recommend the Diploma course at Oxford house to any teacher who wishes to improve their teaching.
