I am more than happy with my decision to take the course at TEFL Worldwide Prague. It was definitely intense, but at the same time a lot of fun, challenging and an unforgettable experience worth the money.
One of the reasons I decided to go for TEFL Worldwide Prague was that their students kept in touch with the school and many were available to contact via email or Facebook.
The staff at the school is wonderful. Everyone is friendly and helpful and offered assistance, even beyond course-related topics. The teacher trainers are amazing - they obviously enjoy what they do and they do a great job. I learned a lot, it was a very rewarding time.
I highly recommend TEFL Worldwide to anyone planning on getting their TEFL - you wont regret it.

I would 100% recommend this course to anybody, if you are considering TEFL Worldwide Prague - do not hesitate, go for it!!! You are fully supported in all areas, not only during the course, but pre-arrival information, assistance while you are living there, job guidance and post-course support. All the staff are very professional, but also friendly, warm, helpful and make this \'intense\' course feel like a recreation! The course has a good variety of content and covers all relevant areas in sufficient detail. The students you will teach are motivated, helping you feel at ease and you are given ample support and materials to have a successful, fun and interesting teaching experience. I would definitely say the course is great value for money and living in Prague is such a wonderful experience in itself. Gaining my certificate with TEFL Worldwide Prague has helped open new doors for me, and I would urge anybody considering EFL teaching to sign up to a course with this school, you will not regret it! Thank you to everybody at TEFL Worldwide Prague! (Student May-June 2012)

I completed my TEFL course in September of last year and really enjoyed it. The instructors have loads of experience and really good ideas for lessons. The office staff is very friendly and helpful with visa information and job guidance. The owner is a nice and energetic woman.
You get a lot of teaching practice at the school and learn everything about English grammar so teaching real lessons after the course is easy.
The only \"bad\" thing is that its a bit outside of the center of Prague but its an easy metro ride in and there are plenty of places to eat and drink near the school (which are cheap).
Also, the staff will always send you new job advertisements in the Czech Republic and elsewhere after you finish. It\'s a really nice support system.
