“This course is the real deal. It was very intense. I am now equipped with the skills and experience necessary to go out and start teaching. The course does a thorough job in preparing students for teaching.”

Erik Mutzke, USA – TEFL Teacher, Live TEFL graduate

Matthew Slavik

“It is a very intense course, and it is probably the hardest I have ever had to work in an academic setting. But once you finish you definitely do feel prepared to teach. I can't imagine a teacher that completes an online course could possibly be as good as a teacher that goes through Live TEFL.”

Matthew Slavik, USA – TEFL Teacher, Live TEFL Graduate
