I had a great experience with the TEFL Iberia course. I learned a lot in the month-long (120-hour) course. The course content was great. There was a healthy dose of grammar, along with techniques for teaching grammar, vocabulary, speaking, pronunciation, correction, etc. I received very useful feedback not only from head tutor Richard, but from other observers as well. We learned how to create lesson plans for real English language learners starting on day one. Richard was a great resource for everything, ranging from how to deal with specific situations to where to find students to where to have a nice meal in Barcelona. I was very fortunate to have obtained a job right away before the course was over, thanks to Richard\'s recommendation. Overall, it was a great TEFL course and I highly recommend it!

I had a very positive experience at TEFL Iberia. The group size was small, the facilities were very impressive and I was in the classroom every day for one month either teaching or observing a class so overall I feel very prepared. The head tutor Richard was very knowledgeable and encouraging and he and the other tutors gave useful feedback after the practice classes. I give this course my full recommendation.
