I am very grateful for all the help and support given to me by the Global TEFL team and my trainer Lionel!! Really enjoyed the course, I found it a bit difficult at the beginning but as I understood it more I really enjoyed working through the modules and now feel confident enough to go and teach English on my own. Thank you so much. Very happy student right now!

A professional and very well presented course, providing a user-friendly website; clear and concise notes and resources as well. The student forums were great and personal feedback on all assignments and queries. I would highly recommend this course and Global Language Training to others.

The Global Language Training's online course was a thorough, challenging, and useful tool with many practical ideas, even for me, a current English teacher and administrator. I highly recommend the course for anyone looking to learn how to teach English as a foreign language to others.

  • Overall I'm quite satisfied with my experience with TEFL Source. They're not the end providers of the courses but they do offer lots of useful information, more than other sites I was checking, and their staff was quick to respond to my onslaught of questions! Also saved some money on the course I wanted which was good for my wallet :) Anton G.
  • 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
