In 2010 in Australia the college I worked for closed and my children left home. I was at a loss as to what to do next. I sat with this for a while thinking over what I wanted to do with my teaching career in middle age. I was a qualified primary school teacher. Eventually I remembered that in my youth I had wanted to teach English as another language.
I searched courses on the internet and found this course in Barcelona. I decided on this one as I had started learning Spanish. I chose the option to do the assignments over the internet and spend 2 weeks at the college attending lectures and doing practice teaching.
This was really a wonderful experience. The college found us boarding with locals which was great. There were only 3 other mature students in the course but the young ones accepted us and we all went out together on weekends. I did spend some late nights with assignments and there was some pressure to get your daily lessons ready fairly quickly to teach them that afternoon.
The teaching staff were all very experienced and gave us good advice on how to live in this city. I got lots of practice teaching English and great feedback and advice on teaching methods from the supervisors.
I could not teach English in Europe because I was Australian and couldn't get my papers. So when I came home I applied for work in China. I secured a good job but had to pull out because of health reasons. In 2011 I was employed as a teacher of English, literacy and numeracy in a nearby town in Australia and taught mainly new settlers to Australia for the next 7 years. As many of my students were refugees, it was a very rewarding experience.

How can this program be improved?
I think if you have done all the theory and assignments over the internet you should be exempt from doing the assignments over the practical portion of the course.

I came in with a Bachelor's degree, so I knew I didn't need the certification to get a job teaching in Japan. What I wanted from TEFL Tokyo was the confidence to walk into a new classroom and start teaching. That is exactly what I got.

TEFL International Tokyo gave me a TESOL certificate, but more importantly, they gave me the tools and practice and confidence I need to be an effective teacher.

This was a great course with a sufficient amount of time and attention paid to both the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching English as a second language.
Larry and Dave conducted the classes with a friendly enthusiasm and had a way of making every task interesting and informative. Additionally, classes were well organised and provided plenty of opportunities for students to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of the given topics.
TEFL International was a great way for me to start my time in Tokyo and was an invaluable experience which I believe will definitely help me in any future language teaching career.

I truly learned a lot in this course! It is a great mix of textbook information, practical real life teaching, great teacher role models, and lots of valuable skills and inputs. The teachers are really fun and friendly and knowledgable. It's a good atmosphere to learn in. The real world teaching opportunities are helpful and great practice. This is a course I can be proud to say I have taken, and it should carry a lot of weight with employers. Speaking of, they gave me a great reference, and I was able to get a job offer shortly after the course finished, using what I had learned in the class during my interview. Thanks Larry and Coach Dave!!

How can this program be improved?
I think they could retype and crisp up the handout materials. They have good content, but the ink was dull. Such a small thing. But hey there's gotta be something to improve.
