Course and Work Testimonials

Katya Chabaniuk (Ukraine)

“I came back to my work as an English teacher in the Marine College of the technical fleet. I teach boys from 16 to 18. I liked my job before your course and like it now even more!

Sometimes, I use some of your methodology, but I want to use it more often, but as there is a lot of paper work (unnecessary), I don’t have much opportunity now.

By the way, today I’ve asked my students, for home work, to find songs with verbs in Past Simple and Past Continuous, and they liked this task very much!! In future, I want to implement more of the games that you showed us.

Life in Ukraine is difficult, but my roots are here and that’s why it’s not so easy to change my life here and my job here for something in an unknown and strange country/city..But as I have been to Lisboa this summer and liked it very much, so I decided that if my life hasn’t changed in the next 4 years, I’ll go and live and teach there”.

Xavier Vidal (Spain)

“After my TEFL course I started providing private lessons at the small town of Mollerussa. I teach individual lessons and/or two people at the same time. I have a range of students from 10 years old to 36 years old.

Usually the young students need to review the work that they do at school and the adult people are preparing the ESOL Cambridge exams”.

Viktoriia Surmatch (Russia)

Viktoriia Surmatch on her experience with TEFL Barcelona and returning to teach English in RussiaTEFL has improved my teaching a lot. I got my certificate at the end of July, and by the end of August I was back teaching in S-P. Normally after a long 3 months vacation it is a little bit difficult, but I was excited finally performing for my dear students, we had great Engages, Studies and Activates, just like I you taught me.

TEFL made my lessons more active for students. It taught me how to make a lesson great even if there are more than 6 students (which before was stressful for me).

I am very grateful to all my teachers:) Thank you”.
