I have just completed the Trinity CertTESOL course in Malaga. It has been a very challenging time, but an invaluable experience on many levels. I have enjoyed the opportunity to meet like-minded people, forge new friendships, and gain a qualification that will enable me to work around the globe, from a team of staff members who have shown friendly support throughout the course.

The course is intense, but so fulfilling. The trainers are experienced, available, and friendly. I learned more than I could have ever imagined. Rome is gorgeous and the students you will be teaching are so enthusiastic and supportive of the trainees. Are you at all hesitant? Sign up!!! It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I will never forget my time here.

Although intensive, I really enjoyed the Tefl course in Malaga. I learned a lot about myself and I couldn’t believe how much I learnt in just 4 weeks! I have seen such a big improvement in my teaching skills and can say that I feel confident and ready to work as a teacher. Even though our sessions were quite long, the staff made it enjoyable. They were supportive and helpful throughout the course. It’s truly been a rewarding experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested, but only if you’re truly prepared and serious about getting certified.

I have just successfully completed the TEFL in Spain part-time course in Malaga. I have really enjoyed the course. It has been extremely challenging juggling a young family, new puppy and the course. For those reasons I would recommend the part-time course to anyone in similar circumstances. The teaching practice has been very useful for my new career in TEFL. Finally, the tutors have been great and always willing to help out! Thanks TEFL in Spain.
CELTA course
This course was the ideal transition in life after years of schooling. I immediately became aware that I am a reflective teacher. As an emerging artist, this training will give you access for a future of financial stability and a new profession in education. Also, it´s cheap and tranquil in Malaga!

Teaching is what I have been doing for the past three and a half years, but it is not something that I had developed a passion for — until now. Doing this TEFL course in Italy has opened my eyes to the range of benefits, intrigue, and overall satisfaction that can be had from teaching, and it has taught me new things both about myself and about the profession. I have always wanted to travel to Italy, and doing so with the added bonus of improving myself professionally was the best decision I have ever made. It is true what they warn you about: the course is intense. However, the assignments, input sessions, and teaching practice all combine to aide in your development and, in the end, make you a stronger and more confident teacher. Proper time management and great support from fellow trainees and tutors alike guarantees that you will make it through, no matter what. I learned so much on this course, met some of the most amazing people, and have now strengthened myself with a certificate that will keep me moving forward. If I could do it over, I would not change one thing, except for maybe this: I wouldn’t leave. If you’re thinking about a TEFL course, this one is a good one. Just go for it.

When they told me the course is intensive, I didn’t seriously know what to expect… I found out when I arrived there: tons of information on subjects I never studied, nights of little sleep to be able to complete the tasks and prepare lessons for the teaching practice… But exactly for this reason it changed me like few other things happened in my life did: it showed me sides I didn’t know about myself, skills I didn’t know I had. There were difficult moments, of course, but I didn’t give up, especially thanks to the tutors: they are there to help you when the pressure is too high. If you will take this course you will not be left alone, and you will get the value that you paid for.

Great course, definitely worth it! The trainers are so supportive but they will in no-way spoon feed you. I´m sure you´ve heard it a thousand times – but this is intense! If you´re not prepared to get on with it and knuckle down then this isn´t the course for you. But if you´re motivated and and enthusiastic, you´ll love it. The absolute highlight for me has been the people – the students I’ve taught have an amazing sense of humour, the trainers seriously know their stuff and my fellow classmates, well what can I say! The best team and Tefl family I could’ve asked for. Thanks Tefl in Spain.

The course is highly intensive, but after having completed it, I feel an enormous sense of achievement. It taught me so much about the importance of time management and how to prioritize. We all experienced a whirlwind of emotions throughout, but worked efficiently. It did help to mould us into stronger people both on a personal and professional level. The tutors we had were very dedicated in helping us succeed. They led by example in showing us what it takes to be a teacher of English. They always gave constructive, honest feedback to the lessons we taught and never failed to encourage and praise us when we showed improvement. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wishes to further their teaching development.

Hi, my name’s Jelle. I’m from the Netherlands and I’m 20 years old. I did the part-time course at TEFL in Spain. It was a good experience and very manageable. I’m glad I did the 8 week course because it allowed me to work and do some Spanish on the side. Would recommend it to anyone who’s eager to travel and work around the world.

My name is Phil and I’m from the UK. I’m 18 years old and I just passed the part-time Trinity CertTESOL course at TEFL in Spain. It was a great experience that has seriously helped me develop personally and professionally; you learn so much about the teaching process and the tutors are really helpful, the environment is laid back and while you’re here you really feel at home. I would recommend it to anyone thinking of taking it. You can go anywhere with this!

At first, I was very nervous about the course. The tutors were very friendly and open to help you. The first week is where a lot of learning and serious guiding for us takes place. From the second week, you are supposed to do your own lesson plans, and it’s very scary to do. The tutors and other trainees are there to help and assist you.I have to say the amount of work is huge, and yes, it takes a lot of time. The course, it is afull-time thing, but the joy to have the students doing and understanding what you prepared is worth it. At the end, the sense of accomplishment is amazing! I would recommend, for sure, the TELF course in Rome.

The TEFL course had a large amount of source information and tools to become a great teacher. I learned so many things in just one month. It’s very intense, like every short course, but the tutors really helped us and kept motivating every trainee. We all shared beautiful and stressful moments as a big family! The atmosphere within the school is great for learning and teaching. The scenery outside is beautiful and I took walks during my lunch break with the other trainees. I have had a lovely time for my first study abroad experience. Don’t give up and be motivated throughout the course! You’ll be satisfied in the end and you’ll see all your progress!
