I used TEFL Heaven to obtain my TESOL certificate in Vietnam. From the start, the TEFL Heaven team was very helpful in helping me make my decision. They followed up with me regularly and helped me throughout the process. They assisted me with all my questions about life in Vietnam and finding a job after the program.

The experience was very well organized and I would definitely recommend them. There's free accommodation during the program and there's a TON of assistance in finding a job after the program is over. Took about one week for some of the students to find jobs - well worth it.

A little more than a year ago, I was supposed to go teach abroad with another organization in Vietnam. The program would've required an online TEFL course and would've really only gotten me in touch with a school. Not TEFL Heaven, though. Once I found TEFL Heaven, I decided to give it all another shot and I must say, it has proven to be one of the best experiences I've ever had. Completing a TEFL course in person (as you would with any of TEFL Heaven's locations) has proven to be much more effective and I can't imagine doing the course any other way. I had so much support. I was connected with amazing resources at my center as well as at others in various parts of South America, and ended up landing a separate job teaching English in Colombian public schools through their Ministry of Education program. Because of the experience I was given through TEFL Heaven, I've secured English teaching positions for the summer in Turkey and the next year in Japan. Thanks TEFL Heaven!

From the get go, TEFL heaven were brilliant at responding to emails and worries that I may have concerning moving abroad. The support I received throughout was outstanding. Having others help me in finding jobs and different opportunities, I have never found a job so easily! Antigua Guatemala is a dynamic and exciting little colonial town with a backpacker feel and plenty of culture. It felt like hone straight away!
The TEFL surpassed all expectations and fully prepared me for the difficulty of being an ESL teacher. Could not be more thankful for this experience and I am now a fully qualified, employed ESL teacher here in Guatemala!!!

How can this program be improved?
It can't it surpassed it's expectations.

I have recently decided to teach English in Buenos Aires, Argentina, through the TEFL Heaven program, and I cannot recommend it enough. It was overall a great experience which was rewarding and enriching at the same time. The people were incredibly friendly, and it was a great start to the journey, as it was very much social hub, alongside the productive work that was done. The course material was interesting, as we delved into topics such as teaching theories, methods and classroom etiquette before starting our teaching practice lessons. The week of teaching practice was where I developed my preferred teaching style; I felt confident and secure at every step of the way, due to the guidance and constructive criticism given by the instructors. Once the course finished, we were given a lot of aid with crafting CVs, applying for teaching jobs and going for interviews. I do not regret spending time to train for my TEFL qualification in Buenos Aires, as it made job hunting easier. The post-program process was very smooth and positive; despite having a busy teaching schedule, there was still time to explore the city, uncover its culture and socialise with newfound friends. All in all, it was a fabulous experience and I cannot recommend it enough!

How can this program be improved?
The program was very satisfactory and matched my expectations perfectly. However, if I had to change one aspect, I would have requested to have more lessons on teaching specific and intricate grammatical rules to non-native English speakers.

Coming to Vietnam and obtaining my TESOL was simple and smooth process. Being able to have hands on experience was great as this is my first time teaching. There's quite a lot to do in the 4 weeks (observations, lectures, essays, lesson planning, practice classes, eating and drinking!), but once everything is done - you'll feel ready to take on any class.

One of the things I liked about the course is that it gives everyone a chance to network with other new teachers - this makes the whole process of moving to another country slightly less lonely.

I was also given help to find a job and everyone on my course was successful in finding a job.

All in all, I am very happy with the course.
