Hear from TEFL Online Graduates and Teach Away Alumni:

“One aspect of the course that I found to be truly valuable were the personal videos by the instructors and also from previous students who have had experience in the field and offered insight into how ESL classrooms are represented in various settings. As I have not had actual classroom experience, I found this information to be incredibly helpful.”
- Francis, TEFL Online Graduate

“What I enjoyed most was that I could progress through the course at my own pace, that the information was so well organized, clearly presented and in a logical manner (many thanks to all the instructors), and that help was always readily available when I got stuck (my sincerest thanks to Mel).”
- Shauna, TEFL Online Graduate

“We wanted to send you a short update and to thank you again for helping us get to Korea. We are really enjoying everything: our jobs, the food, and scenery. Gwangju is a fantastic, foreigner-friendly city. We couldn’t have asked for more. I can’t believe we have been here for one month already! Thank you for everything.”
