I would highly recommend TEFL express after the brilliant help and support I have received. They were very quick to respond to any queries I had and offered helpful advice to swiftly resolve any problems. The online course is very accessible and easy to navigate, whilst the nature of the work is challenging and interesting.

The TEFL team, have aided me in my quest to understand the aspects of working (and living) in China. The questions I asked were responded to quickly and clearly. Their help has been prompt and much appreciated. I would recommended them to anyone and everyone, who has their heart set on being a foreign teacher in China.

It (the course) was perfectly geared towards someone such as myself: a native speaker with little to no actual formal teaching experience. Now I am ready.
- Jared Kimball
I can honestly say if I ever need to brush up, or recommend a TEFL program to a friend, TEFL Express will be first on my mind.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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
