I didn\'t know what to expect when I signed up for the Live TEFL course. But once I started the course, I knew that I had chosen correctly. All of the trainers are very helpful and knowledgeable. I walked away knowing more about teaching than I could have imagined. The small class size was probably one of my favorite things about the course because it allowed the students to get extra and better help. We had a lot of feedback sessions after teaching practices that were very thorough, and I really appreciated that. I also loved that the school made every student a resume video. The video is very professional, so I now have it posted on my LinkedIn and portfolio website.
The trainers of the course also help you with things outside of teaching. If you plan on staying in the Czech Republic, you will get help with opening a Czech bank account, getting a pass to ride public transportation, visa help, and more.
Another benefit of this course is that it is affiliated with Spevacek - one of the largest language schools in Prague. So, if you do really well in the course, you\'ll get offered a job or an interview. Thanks to this course, I now have two steady and fun jobs teaching a wide range of students (children to adults) in Prague.

I couldn\'t have asked for a better experience in attending Live TEFL Prague\'s TEFL certification program. It was an extremely thorough, intense month of learning teaching techniques. And I came out of it mostly unscathed and equipped with the necessary tools to teach english as a foreign language.
The TEFL trainers were awesome! All were extremely knowledgable and helpful, but also willing to go to the pub to unwind after a long week of classes. They were also great in providing feedback after our practice teaching sessions, a part of the course that I believe is critical.
The office staff was incredibly helpful, whether you needed help making photo copies, opening a Czech bank account, or general advice about what to do in the city. They would go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and at ease.
Overall, I highly, highly recommend Live TEFL Prague if you are considering a TEFL certification program. I can\'t imagine there being a better place to do it.
