Lucy Makepeach in Cambodia

Lucy Makepeace

Lucy taught in Cambodia for two months before being offered a permanent role in Phnom Penh.

Knowing that I am helping these children and adults to build their confidence and improve their English is so rewarding, and I find their determination and humility inspiring. They are not only learning from me, but I have learnt so much from them too.

Tim in Russia


Tim took our TEFL course, and now lives and teaches in Russia, where he’s thinking of remaining!

Life is better than ever! I work for successful people, salary is great. I see the world. I see growth in the kids I teach. Is there anything more I really need to say to persuade you that this is a life-changing course?

I wish everyone could spend a period of their lives in a school such as this to truly put what it is important into perspective. The world would definitely be a better place.

Will Peach in Spain

Will Peach

Will got TEFL qualified and now lives and works in Spain, where he’s working on becoming bilingual!

Not only am I learning more about Spanish people, getting under the skin of the culture and discovering what it is that makes them tick, but I’m also enhancing my career, my skills and building something more than simply a 24 hour-a-week TEFL career.

Charlia Adams in Cambodia

Charlie taught in Cambodia for two months on the Cambodia TEFL Internship

I really enjoyed immersing myself in the culture and I’ve learnt such a lot. The kids are incredible, and their attitude towards learning is inspiring. It was definitely the children that made my teaching experience so enjoyable.

Rachel Melton in South Africa

Rachel Melton

Rachel taught in South Africa for two months before securing a permanent teaching role in China

I was already planning on going travelling and this meant I could travel and do something meaningful too! Teaching the children was incredible and made me realise what I want to do as a career later on in life: teach! I also made some pretty close friendships as well as getting to live in an amazing city.

James in Paris


James took our TEFL course and now lives the dream teaching in Paris with his partner!

My advice would be: do it! Life is too short and I firmly believe that if you want to leave and be successful, the only thing standing in your way is a lack of self-belief.

If you are hesitating over whether or not to take this course... don't! I found it very useful and interesting and you will learn and have fun at the same time.
It was really difficult for me. But I did it! Thank you!
I found the course very useful, even if you just complete the 120 hours, you are packed with a bunch of knowledge that will help you to create and teach an effective lesson. You are able to learn things you may have never thought about. I also monitor my own English now that I know more about the structure behind it.
