Qualify to teach English as a foreign language with our TEFL courses – either online or in-class at various locations across Ireland
Fed up of the 9-to-5, rubbish weather, and desperate for a change? TEFL - teaching English as a foreign language - might just be the answer.
With TEFL there are opportunities to teach English abroad as well as online, from the comfort of your own home. This year, the British Council estimates the number of people using English to some degree will hit 2 billion. Only around 360 million are native English speakers, so a quick calculation will tell you that there are a lot of English language learners out there.
And they all need teachers! That’s where you come in. Having a TEFL qualification means you can take advantage of the current huge demand for EFL teachers and get out there and experience the world.
So, what are the requirements? All you need to get started is a native or native-level of English. That’s it - no previous teaching experience necessary, no other qualifications required.

In general I felt it was a good course with some elements considerably more useful than others. The grammar course was interesting and I learned some things I'd never learned before. For example, I'd never lear...

It is an interesting course, as a native speaker there are certain points that you know outright but might not consider when teaching someone new to the language. Is this irreplaceable? No. Is this useful? Yes.
