Besides offering a professional and top quality accredited TEFL training course we offer continued job guidance and support during and well after the course. You will be training in Prague, the heart of Europe and one of the most beautiful cities in the world where you will create friendships and memories for a lifetime! 

 More reasons to learn with TEFL Worldwide:

  • Support, Alumni Community and more Support! You won’t be alone. We’ve been doing this since 1999 and have helped thousands of people come to Prague for the course and go on to teach in Prague or abroad. You will have support from your classmates, our staff and our extensive Alumni network in Prague.

  • TEFL Worldwide is officially accredited and externally moderated by IATQuO (The International Accreditation of TESOL Qualifying Organisations) and the Czech Ministry of Education. Most importantly our graduates are in demand for teaching positions worldwide.
  • TEFL Worldwide is an American owned school with many North Americans on staff. We know what it’s like to pack up and move abroad.
  • No previous teaching experience or second language is required.
  • TEFL Worldwide has close to 3000 graduates who have taught in over 60 countries. A simple fact that says it all! Train at TEFL Worldwide and you’ll have dozens of jobs to choose from globally. We offer ongoing job assistance worldwide, even years after you’ve taken the course. Many of our graduates have taught in 4 or more countries!

  • Each course is limited to ensure that you get plenty of personal attention.
  • You will receive 8-10 hours of hands-on teaching practice in a classroom with real Czech students. (The international standard is 6 hours)
  • Low student to trainer ratio. You will receive plenty of feedback and personal time with the trainers after being observed during your teaching practice. The student to teacher ratio is 2:1 or 3:1 during the teaching practice. During lectures you will be in a classroom and many times broken up into smaller groups for group work.
  • The training is conducted by a highly qualified and experienced Course Director and a team of trainers with years of experience teaching English abroad. This is very important. When researching TEFL schools be sure that the Course Director/Head Trainer is qualified, meaning that they have a Higher Diploma, DELTA or Master’s specifically in TEFL/TESOL.
  • We have the most affordable housing. The benefit of our housing is that it’s located near the school in a quiet residential area.
  • TEFL Worldwide offers a 1 day workshop for teaching Young Learners. This is offered one weekend day during the course for a discounted fee for TEFL Worldwide graduates.
  • We work closely with you in finding a teaching job shortly after the course. 
  • We offer personal support and guidance before, throughout and after the program. It all begins before your arrival to Prague. We will assist you with settling-in before the course, help you during your time in Prague, provide you with job guidance and will follow up after you begin teaching English abroad.
  • We provide housing assistance for those who decide to stay in Prague.
  • Language school employers continuously comment on how satisfied they are with the skills and knowledge of our teachers and are keen on hiring more so they contact us with job openings on a regular basis.
  • We have the experience and expertise of preparing you for this transition abroad, in teaching in other countries, as well as in assistance with securing employment.
